    I’m not really sure the bengals are all that great at the end of the day. Sure they have there moments and when they do they look fantastic, but as soon as they taste some success there true colors seem to show. Worst part it’s everyone including the coaches. When the lose it’s super ugly, and when they win it looks amazing. So I still question whether or not they are good.

    Oh I would have never suggested they take Parsons over Chase at that point, but Parsons is amazing to watch. I also have no interest in them taking Brandon Smith before the 2nd round, but there are other LB's should they look that way in the first. It's simply too early to have even a small clue how that might shake out. However, if it did shake out with Linderbaum and then Smith, I can tell you now I would be a happy camper, having watched both of them play. Linderbaum will be playing in the Big 10 Championship against a good Michigan front 7 and I will be watching for sure. Steelers living through the dreaded "Dead Cat Bounce" ?? Yes, I will sleep with a smile on my face just thinking about that tonight. Thanks Hoosier !!

    My son talked me into heading down for the game. 50+ temps for a Cincinnati football game in December ?? Yeah, no one complaining about that...

    This is huge. I wonder if they could have gone last week but the staff was overconfident with how they'd perform based on kicking the Steelers' ass.

    I have always liked Cunningham. From the time he was coming out of college and watching him a lot since my son is a Texans fan. I would hope the Bengals would consider bringing him in here. He's ABSOLUTELY NOT WORSE than the likes of Bailey or Batchie. Maybe more once he got settled into the defense.

    I’m predicting a loss this week. Expectations are low. I’ll be glad to be surprised with a win. But I don’t see it.

    Amazing that we’d be in the playoffs if played today. Losses to the Jets, the bears, and the Chargers does not sound like a playoff team. But that’s where we are!

    Tums might help that Hoosier… Hard to say what this team does, but the same could be said for any team in the AFC North at this point in time. Just never know what you are going to get from any of them week in and week out. That being the case, the Bengals have just as much of a shot of winning the North as any other team at this point in the season. STAY FOCUSED AND GET MOTIVATED. Lets goooooo !!!

    Damn. I forgot to add a 2-3 with no playoffs option. Assuming that 9-8 won't get them in. Who is having memories of the 2006 team that went 8-5 only to lose the last 3 games and miss getting in?

    As much as I harp on linebackers and how the team addresses that position, it's simply not a group that can afford injuries. I really hope they beat the 49er's this Sunday, but have no idea what to expect from the team one week to the next. If this going to be the team that beat the Ravens and swept the Steelers or the team that has given away winnable games? What motivation is needed to get a fast start out of this team? I was watching the game thinking, "Do they know this isn't a scrimmage and the game really started" ?? Next thing you know, it was 24-0 with 10 minutes remaining in the 2nd quarter.

    Yes, congrats on the home sale and wish you well in your move. I went through that at the beginning of this year in the selling and buying of a new place. UGH !! I agree that this season to this point is still going better than I thought and it's been fun to this point. However, I find myself irritated with how they have lost what appears to be winnable games. The o-line played one of their worst games yesterday. Chase and his inexplicable drops. Mixon with that horrible fumble. However, after going down 24-0 and everyone calling it, they came back and were within 2 and driving when Mixon coughed it up. The stadium was going crazy and you just knew they were going to pull it out. Then it all fell apart. The players have to do better and Zac needs to stop having brain farts. I'm I worried about it? Not really. Just get better and become a more consistent team. Their inconsistency kills me. Lets go beat the snot out of the 49er's. That would make me happy.

    https://www.olinestats.com/ I've discovered this site today, and it is full of some really interesting offensive line goodies. I cannot verify the process or the statistics as legitimate, but I tend to doubt anyone does all this work without there being some kind of basis for it. So I give the benefit of the doubt there. Through 12 weeks of 2021, the Bengals offensive line as a unit ranks: 8th in pressure rate allowed - 21.6% 14th (tie) in sacks allowed - 14 32nd in tackles for loss allowed - 21 8th in penalties - 18 24th (tie) in yards per carry before contact - 2.2 Here are some rankings for individual players, per their respective positions (generalized as tackles, guards, and centers): Riley Reiff 30th in pressure rate allowed - 5.03% Sacks allowed - 3 (about average) Tackles for loss allowed - 3 (slightly worse than average) Penalties - 2 (better than average) Jonah Williams 38th in pressure rate allowed - 5.39% Sacks allowed - 5 (slightly worse than average) Tackles for loss allowed - 5.5 (league worst) Penalties - 2 (better than average) Quinton Spain 12th in pressure rate allowed - 2.95% Sacks allowed - 3 (slightly worse than average) Tackles for loss allowed - 1.5 (slightly better than average) Penalties - 3 (average) Jackson Carman 39th in pressure rate allowed - 5.15% Sacks allowed - 0 (optimal) Tackles for loss allowed - 2.5 (slightly worse than average) Penalties - 3 (average) Trey Hopkins 12th in pressure rate allowed - 2.75% Sacks allowed - 3 (worse than average) Tackles for loss allowed - 6.5 (league worst) Penalties - 3 (average) They don't appear to have data for Sua-Filo or Adeniji yet. Obviously some of this is bad, but it does reflect the entire season. I think it is clear that we have seen the line improving, and the same site currently ranks the Bengals offensive line 15th best in the league (https://www.olinestats.com/articles/week-13-offensive-line-rankings). This at least gives an interesting glimpse into certain trends. The standout is definitely the rate at which the line has allowed tackles for loss in the running game. They lead the league in that category, and each of the five featured have struggled in that arena. Obviously Adeniji is a critical new piece, and his numbers could be very different in a limited sample. However bad its been, the trajectory is clearly positive right now.

    Look, I have been very critical in the past about the decisions this team has made in the draft and in free agency but I think it is high time to start throwing some love towards Duke Tobin and team. It is amazing how much of this team has been acquired in the last two seasons. Looking at the folks that are making this leap possible, almost all of them are in their first or second year with the Bengals (counting Jonah as a second year guy because let's face it, his rookie season was a red shirt) The only guys in the starting lineup that are hold overs from Marvin years (not counting special teams guys) are...Joe Mixon, CJ Uzomah, Trey Hopkins, Tyler Boyd and Sam Hubbard... five players.. that is incredible. In the offseason, experts (and myself if I am being honest) said they had to resign Carl Lawson and William Jackson at a minimum....they signed neither. Lawson played one game for the Jets before injury and WJ3 has been the most disappointing FA acquisition in the NFL this season. Instead they took a fraction of the money they would have had to spend on those two players and turned it into Hendrickson, Chido, Hilton, and Apple....how different would this team be without those guys. Turning Billy Price into BJ Hill was a move of genius. In the draft they didn't listen to the talking heads that were saying...in some cases...that they should be demoted from the NFL if they did not select Penei Sewell...and made the right decisions. And not only that, they are getting good production from guys picked in the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th rounds. They pulled the trigger on a kicker in the 5th knowing they would get roasted for it but how many games have we won because of McPherson, what would our record be with fat Randy? Almost every move (should have taken Trey Smith or Creed Humphreys instead of Carman most likely) has been the right move, they have hit on a large % of their moves and are very much responsible for this season and I am not hearing much of that. I have to say that I am very impressed by this front office and they have won me over the last two seasons.

    I just want them to continue to improve the o-line roster group. If they feel that's best done in the early rounds or they can target a player later, that's fine. This is where I trust Pollack's ability. I think, as we saw with the JaMarr Chase pick, there's more than one way to help Burrow out. Does this mean we draft another WR? HELL NO, but I simply don't think we can say anything with the draft is a lock at this point. I'm still beating the LB drum. LOUDLY If I'm betting, I'll go CB.

    I thought Carman eventually would be RT since they drafted him based on some of the comments/evals. We’ll see if that materializes. Reiff is a guy you have to get back for at least another year. I’d hate to go unproven at a edge spot. Spain is another to get back. I’d like to see if Pollack could fix the Center spot with 3-5 round pick. He’s got Hill, but maybe another and have a competition.

    I think we all said that we would be happy with a mediocre offensive line and through 12 weeks that is what we have seen...the thing is, they appear to be improving week after week, will be interesting to see how they rank in 6 more weeks....I think top ten is a possibility.

    These advance stat services like PFF are worlds better than what fans had prior which was nothing or somebody basing an evaluation off the TV feed which can be very misleading as you don't get depth etc. I do think they make a mistake of trying to rank units or players 1-32. In reality if you got all the league's line coaches and a handful of college line coaches in the room. The majority could probably agree on elite unit play and the elite players. They could probably determine bad unit play and bottom tier players. There's no chance in hell you'd have any agreement in a ranking 1-32. There's probably a few elite units. Some horrible and then a mass population of all others and it depends upon the individual preference on how they would rank them. In terms of the Bengals they are top half yards. Higher in points scored and rushing yards so it makes sense that the line is at least considered average to good as I doubt those numbers are possible with bad o-line play. Reference the "zone blocking" tweet posted on this board. There's no way any outsider is accurately grading every zone run without being involved in system installment. There simply are not black and white assignments very often that's the weakness of the advance stat services.
