  1. 2021 NFL Draft

    No, this isn't my mock draft for next year, well.... not yet. Rather, they announced the NFL draft will be in Cleveland next year. I tried to make reservations, but the rates for the rooms aren't loaded up yet. ArmyBengal Jr. and myself are definitely going for at least the first round festivities !!!
  2. 2020 Reds

    Have the Reds been "THAT" bad in recent years that no one talks about them at all ?? In regards to an offseason, when was the last time the Reds have been so active and in an apparent mode of "WIN NOW" ?? It's been exciting to this point with all the talent they have brought into the organization. It should be a fun season and without even seeing them take the field, I can tell you I will be visiting GABP more this coming season !!! GO REDS !!!
  3. What About the Defense ??

    We have spent a ton of time discussing the concerns about the o-line and have all but totally dismissed the other side of the ball. I don't know why either. They carried a large amount of SUCK last year !! Damn near every overall defensive statistical category was near the bottom of the entire league, with the exception of opponents TD's in the redzone. In the off season, they were strangely very active with their additions: DJ Reader, DT- Signed to a 4 year deal Trae Waynes, CB- Signed to a 3 year deal MacKensie Alexander, CB- Signed to a 1 year deal Vonn Bell, SS- Signed to a 3 year contract Josh Bynes, LB- Signed to a 1 year contract There were also some players that left the team such as (Kirkpatrick, Dennard, Fejedelem, Billings and Vigil) which required the back fill that we saw. If we are going to scrutinize the offense, specifically the line, we should be just as focused on the defense. Here's where I am at this point in time, especially how I view the given moves: Waynes and Alexander in place of Kirkpatrick and Dennard in not far off an equal trade. I'm hoping the change in scenery helps the two incoming players. Reader coming in to replace Billings is a big upgrade in my opinion, as is switching Fejedelem for Bell. I really liked those two specific moves. Bringing in Bynes and seeing Vigil leave is a win in my opinion as well. You can argue that Vigil made a lot of tackles, but where did he make those ?? So is it enough ?? If the thought is that defense will win you a championship, have they done enough to move closer to that realization ?? The one thing that really strikes me is that there are, what I view as, upgrades at all 3 levels (Reader, Bynes, and Bell).
  4. With the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select: ???
  5. Bengals @ Ravens Game Thread

    The Browns are the only team they have faced this season that is even at .500 and their schedule hasn't been hard with the exception of the Ravens that kicked the shit out of them. The Chargers, Eagles and Jags have won 3 games collectively. I think that's why Burrow is 4-0 against the spread. Fast forward to the Ravens game and yes, I think they get the shit kicked out of them as well. I'll give up the 14 and go with the Ravens. That team is stacked in comparison. Would LOVE to be 100% wrong and see Burrow and the boys pull the massive upset here !!
  6. Jaguars @ Bengals Game Thread

    He will still be running behind our o-line right ?? Yeah, I’ll pass...
  7. Jaguars @ Bengals Game Thread

    I actually haven't been able to watch a game yet this season. I've caught some highlights but nothing much. This should be the first game i'm able to watch, but the injuries aren't looking good. Couple that with what appears to be the worst o-line in football and I might pass.
  8. Jaguars @ Bengals Game Thread

    I'm still rooting for the organization to leave Cincinnati. That probably will never happen or immediately after I die. Yes, i'm serious in wanting them to leave. While they are here, I will watch, follow and root for them. But yeah, fuck them.
  9. 2020 Reds

    Caught stealing home ?? The Reds ?? Ballsy call right there. Call it stupid, but if it worked, it would have been genius.
  10. 2020 Reds

    Following along on the computer. Bottom of the 7th and still goose eggs, but the Reds have a man on 3rd with 2 outs. GO REDS !!
  11. Jaguars @ Bengals Game Thread

    How bad are the Jaguars ??
  12. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    What ?!?! The o-line sucks ?? Too bad no one saw that coming huh ??
  13. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    For what it’s worth when Josh Jones, OT, Houston, was sitting there for the taking at the top of the 2nd round, I wanted him. They went WR with Higgins, hence my smartass comment. Yes I wanted a LB, but I wanted specific ones and most namely: Patrick Queen. Once he was gone, I was onto OT, then the team went with back to back LB’s I hadn’t given much thought to. If anyone recalls, I wanted them to grab a free agent o-lineman and most namely there was: Jack Conklin who went to the Browns. There’s always next year... right ??
  14. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    Fuck that. What this team really needs is an impact WR !!! **Ducks from things being thrown**
  15. Chargers @ Bengals Game Thread

    Bengals win
  16. Chargers @ Bengals Game Thread

    Man, anyone watch that game last night ?? The Chiefs stomped a mudhole in the Texans' ass.
  17. Chargers @ Bengals Game Thread

    Hopefully Daniels is ready to go !!
  18. Chargers @ Bengals Game Thread

    It's really too bad that fans can't be there. That place would be going crazy Sunday to support Burrow and this team. I can't wait to watch and will be yelling from the couch. Bengals win
  19. Chargers @ Bengals Game Thread

    I just want to see THIS team play. It's been a while since i've been able to say that. Burrow and the WR corps, including Higgins. Reader on the d-line, the revamped linebacking corps, Vonn Bell in stripes with other additions. It might go south, but there is clearly effort being placed on improving. I can live with that.
  20. Chargers @ Bengals Game Thread

    Weren't they on Hard Knocks ?? I thought I read that somewhere.
  21. General Training Camp Thread

    It appears the team is pretty healthy heading into week 1. I guess we have COVID and no preseason to thank for that. I’m just left to wonder what the quality of ball we see from all teams will be these first couple weeks. Not that I care much because I’m way excited !!
  22. Chargers @ Bengals Game Thread

    I will say it again. The Bengals made improvements at all three levels of the defense with Reader, Bynes, and Bell. Couple that with other free agent pick ups and the draft and we we’ll see a pretty good jump from our defense. Yes, concerned about the o-line, but my guess is that Burrow fares well and agree that others downplay our offensive skill positions that I think are very good. Bengals win this game.
  23. Chargers @ Bengals Game Thread

    Don’t think I have much of ANY expectation for this season, with the exception of seeing them simply improve from last year. Now if we are talking about big “surprises”, then I would go with not only a winning season but the playoffs. THAT would be a minor miracle in my book. Yea, I will be rooting for that minor miracle !!
  24. General Training Camp Thread

    I don’t have a problem with Finley but much like Palmer having Kitna, there’s something to be said for having an experienced backup to bounce things off of.
  25. Will There Be a 2020 NFL Season?

    I’d go just to watch Burrow in person.
