  1. Official 2020 QB Thread

    Don't even get me started on that guy. Burrow's personality and demeanour might be his most alluring feature. He has the classic chip-on-the-shoudler, fiery, uber-competitive attitude that all of the greats possess. But yeah, let's rag on his Heisman speech. Out of all the things to attack him for, he goes with that. Alrighty then.

    I would say this is what most people do, and I've said many times I don't care much at all about production. Stats are a small piece of the pie when evaluating, college or pro. Talent and skill reign supreme - and Burrow is flush with both.
  3. Official 2020 QB Thread

    I agree. The Mahomes "comparison" is hyperbolic and attention-seeking, but the crux of the video remains. Burrow - like Mahomes, Wilson, Watson, etc. - has the ability to elevate the play of others around them by winning outside of the play-script. Given the direction that the league is going it seems to be the most important trait a QB can have in 2020.

    We certainly will. But even if he is successful, I don’t foresee you budging on him or your future evaluations. You’ll just find ways to make more excuses as to why he finds success, and how he’ll never be special because he doesn’t have the athletic ability. It is what it is.

    Then you need work as a talent evaluator.
  6. Official 2020 QB Thread

    This is just completely ignorant. People aren’t excited about Burrow because of his statistical production. They’re excited about Burrow because he’s put together unbelievably dominant tape and demonstrated remarkable traits that translate to NFL success. I couldn’t care less about the numbers. You claim to be Mr. Tape - go watch the tape.
  7. Bengals sign Vonn Bell

    I’m starting to get the sense that Vonn will be around the box more than Williams. Or perhaps they’ll rotate.

    Eat up, baby birds.
  9. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    Likely. That's a bit harsh. I expect it to be much improved given the drastic overhaul and it will be the 2nd year in Anarumo's system. I don't understand this at all. Green, Boyd, and Mixon overrated? If anything they're underrated. We'll see about that come next season. There's nothing about the Browns that makes we think we're predetermined bottom-dwellers.
  10. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    This is nonsense. And what does that speech have to do with Goff? They're nothing alike personality-wise.
  11. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    Rumored to be in on Williams, and I haven’t heard anything on being the clubhouse leader. Even with Williams on board that would be overzealous. Burrow should be better than Dalton was last year, but I still expect him to take his rookie lumps. 2021 will be our year.
  12. Bengals sign S Vonn Bell

    Bengals out here.
  13. Bengals sign Vonn Bell

    Wow. I cannot believe this team.
  14. Non-Bengal Free Agents

    One of these things is not like the others. McPhee is an edge rusher.
  15. Non-Bengal Free Agents

    Not sure if true (though they nailed the Bynes signing), but pretty interesting. Anarumo spent time with both in Miami. Extra edge rushers is always good. Interested to see how Reshad Jones fits - LB or S? And...
