Bengals @ Texans Game Thread

On the wr draft pick....if I had my knee shredded and was going through almost a year of hard and painful rehab work, nothing but a pass blocker would make me happy.  Not even a former LSU teammate

Sad but true tho....our incompetent FO just loves the shiny toys instead of the grimey old bulldozers.

I don't blame you for that mindset. I am pretty certain Burrow doesn't share it though. He is not that sort. Rightly or wrongly, he doesn't even blame the state of the offensive line for his injury. He probably blames himself first. He'd be stoked to team up with Chase again.

I'm not sold that it'd be a good decision, but a happy QB is at least something positive to draw from it. I also think Chase is clearly a better prospect than John Ross ever was, so at least the bust potential ought to be less.

I don't understand how the institution of television is even still surviving. These shows are all god awful, and anyone can just ignore their existence with Netflix/Hulu/Prime/Disney/YouTube/HBO/Showtime/literally anything else.

They can’t just pick a WR because our QB wants his college teammate on our squad.  We don’t have that luxury, we have some serious deficiencies that need to be addressed in the draft.

I'd rather have a lineman. If any of the brass are snooping the 'Zone, let it be known that I'd rather have a lineman.

Also, give your social media people raises.

I think they will at least listen to Burrow.  They do have a vested interest in keeping a potential hall of fame QB happy.....but I still say he'll want protection over targets this time

My personal philosophy is that with very rare exception, really bad teams just straight up shouldn't be taking wide receivers early in the first round. Calvin Johnson is a hall of famer, and I think the Lions could have made better picks there. The positional value is too low, and the fail rate is too high. I'd be an extremely boring GM -- everything is OL and DL with skill positions and back seven sprinkled in sporadically.

If they chose to hold their timeouts and just let the Bengals score, that'd be an interesting tactic. Not necessarily even a bad move considering the ass defense both teams are playing.

Vonn Bell is a damn good player.

He's really improved over the course of the year.  Can't remember his FA deal, but I hope it was for multiple years.  Also hope they re-sign Alexander.

Gang, if they finish the job here then this prevented them from going two entire seasons without winning on the road. That would have been truly '90s Bengals or '00s Lions or '10s Browns level terrible.

I'm glad to stop that.
