  1. Totally agree, but not many non-Bengal fans would remember those points, so I din't bring them into it.
  2. A lot fof people do, plus the fact they play in the AFCN. C;eveland has better odds for the ppayoffs/SB in Vegas (not suggesting that this is a great indicator, but it does reflect people's beliefs), the national media outlets have them as a 5-11 team in predictions, and heck, a few people voted them as the worst team in another thread in NFL Gen. So yeah, a lot of people see them as awful. As a fan, I have to disagree.
  3. 2018 OTA Talk

    Yup
  4. The bengals lost two nail biters to the 49ers. Surely, a replay could have neytted us one of the two games. Is it really asking that much to win ONE? If Lewis Billuips holds onto the INT in SB 23, we win, provided we still drive for a FG the next drive, putting us up 10 points. In SB16, we had 4 shots from the 1 yard line. Three feet. 26 freraking inches. It was hard at the time, but after surviving the 90s, it is maddening to be THAT close. I sympathize with Titan fans over that short distance.
  5. Eligible Practice Squad players

    Here's the rules: In order to be eligible for the practice squad, players must meet one of the following requirements: Have no prior Accrued Seasons in the NFL (An accrued season is six or more games on the active roster); Have one prior Accrued Season in which the player was on the 46-man active roster for no more than 8 games; Each club will be permitted to sign a maximum of 4 Practice Squad players who have earned no more than 2 accrued seasons of free agency credit; If served two seasons on a practice squad, are eligible for a third season only if the team has at least 53 players on its active/inactive list for the duration of that player's employment. A player has served one season on the practice squad if he is on the practice squad for at least 6 games. The rule previously required 3 games on the practice squad roster. So is Nickerson eligible?
  6. 2018-2019 Playoffs: 5 In - 5 Out

    Plus the switch from Paul Alexander to Frank Pollack as o-line coach. PA became stale, and would constantly double down on bad decisions (starting Nate Livongs over Evan Mathis, claiming Cedric Ogbhehi was ready to replace Whitworth, and such)
  7. 2018 OTA Talk

    Hard to say. I think his fate is tied to Phillips' ability to take the returner's job ffrom Erickson, or how the young guys look in comparison to LaFell. If the young guys can overtake LaFell, the spot goes to Tate. If Erickson gets beat out, then tate sticks, because as much asI like Erickson's grit, we aren't keeping three guys for the slot (Ross, Boyd). I think Core is toast either way., barring injuries. If Tate sticks, he could allow the team to go light at TE by only keeping Eifert, Kroft and either Hewitt or Uzomah. Tate could act as the flex TE/WR in the lineup.
  8. Better Call Saul, Season 4

    I'd add the second half of season 2 to that.
  9. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    Thanks for the tip. Already on Jessica Jones season 1 now. The perks of having summers off.
  10. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    daredevil Season 1, with the ntent of doing the Defenders series' in the right order
  11. Dead Body found at Janoris Jenkins house

    More likely La'el Collins 2.0
  12. Most underrated player on your team

    Gio Benard. hell even our coaches forgot about him last year when Jeremy Hill was still getting a ton of carries.
  13. 2019 7 Round Mock Draft **UPDATED 7/1***

    I .like the update, at least position wise. I don't have high hopes fpr the RT spot this year with the trio of Bobby hart/Ogbhehi/Jake Fisher competing for it. Adams immediately takes over. I could see a QB that early, but I think Dalton gets enough improvement out of the o-line to bring his bulk stats back up, similar to 2015. I definitely could see a DT, but as long as Atkins gets extended, the other three guys are all young (Billings, Glascow, Brown) enough to roll another year. But maybe they let a swing DE/DT vet like Michael Johnson go to make room. I'd say the same thing about DE, assuming they resign Dunlap. We have Lawson, Willis and Hubbard in the rotation, along with MJ in the swing role. My guess is that you projected a DT and DE due to the looming FA status of Atkins and Dunlap, but I think both of those guys get done. Props for doing the five rounds this early. if I were doing a Bengals one, I think I'd go a bit heavier at OT. We might need a starting RT, but we definitely will need depth. Ogbuehi, Fisher and Hart are all free agents, and unless one or more step up, all should be gone next offseason. maybe we keep one for depth, I don't know. I might be slightly tempted to grab AJ Brown in the first, just to pait him with AJ Green. But that won't happen. The other position I'd look at is LB. Hopefully jefferson develops, but if he or Vigil doesn't, we will be out looking for a SLB.

    Poor Tom Brady

    Steretore seems like one of the best to me. Sorry to see him go.
