  1. Geno situation is a lot of rumors at this point. We know he's hurt, and can't play him a lot of snaps. Zac seems to indicate he's on the same page with Geno there, so knows what the truth is since Geno doesn't talk. As for Dunlap. His reduction in playing time happened after he couldn't produce on the field. He got his opportunity as a full time DE, and wasn't doing well (in the run game or rushing the passer). He's a slow starter but I don't blame the coaches for giving more reps to Lawson instead. Of course then he went further down the depth chart after he refused to embrace his 3rd down pass rusher role. Which honestly, I think would have been great for him but he was being stubborn. It is what it is now, and I'm sure he'll ball out (at least initially) for the Seahawks...
  2. You're not wrong but he was also not motivated. Older guy that got his money. In Seattle on a winning team, I think you'll see better effort out of him...
  3. It's a smart move for Seattle. He should be motivated in Seattle, and should play better (at least initially). I'm also happy the Bengals finally moved on, if they were a smart organization they would have traded Dunlap in the offseason when his value was much higher...
  4. Organizational issue, and not something I put on Zac tbh. A smart organization would have traded Dunlap in the offseason (like they should have done with AJG last offseason before the injury). Instead of the Bengals wait for their assets to depreciate, get surprised when an older player gets hurt, and then trades them for next to nothing or just cuts them out right. It's a stupid way to run a team...
  5. Technically it is still family. I think Jim Turner and Zac have a relation through marriage...
  6. Here's my rant on Zac Taylor... I'm thrilled with Taylor for the most part, and for me it comes down to expectations. I knew going in that he wasn't 100% ready for the job, so there will be a good deal of learning as he goes. I expected 2-3 rough years in the W/L department, and well that's exactly what's occurring. In the last two drafts, we've gotten a promising LT (Jonah), QB (Burrow), and WR (Higgins). The future looks bright for those 3 players, and for me that points to a solid offensive scheme. The defense sucks but besides Jessie Bates, and WJIII to an extent we don't have the personnel. Zimmer is having a rough time in Minnesota, Belichick's D isn't look so hot right now either. I haven't seen anything that says we should keep Lou but I'm not in a rush to get rid of him until we add a couple of more pieces on defense at least, especially the DL. Ultimately, what it comes down to is that I only care about offensive progress right now. Defense I think just comes down to personnel/fundamentals. Even when Marvin was here, the defense would look awful when Geno and/or Burfict were out of the lineup...
  7. I guess the 'good thing' is we have so many holes that the Bengals can draft BPA. I wouldn't be upset if the Bengals went OL, CB, DE, or DT with their first pick. Safety, RB, WR, or LB would annoy me...
  8. Unfortunately. The Bengals have no vision. If they want to move on from aging stars (Dunlap and Geno), and some other assets (Ross, Shawn Williams, etc...) that's fine but just sitting them and frustrating them makes no sense...
  9. I don't understand why the team doesn't try to utilize him at all. Like give him an end around or let him try to return punts, etc... This coaching staff seems to be content just being in close games where they keep losing. I don't care if Ross fumbles and losses us a game, Zac Taylor has what 3 wins? At least take the risk of Ross fumbling a punt vs. Erickson and his 3 yard punt returns...
  10. I said it during the game, that if Dalton was the QB that this is a 14+ point loss...
  11. I mean look at the other QBs in the AFC: Derek Carr Philip Rivers Gardner Minshew Deshaun Watson Sam Darnold Josh Allen Ryan Fitzpatrick/Tua Cam Newton Drew Lock Ryan Tannehill Baker Mayfield Besides Watson (who has BOB sabotaging him), are we really worried about another AFC QB not named LJax, Big Ben, or Mahomes?
  12. I'm curious what adjustments are made, mainly to the OL. Billy Price, Fred Johnson, and possibly Hakeem if they switch to sooner rather than later, we might slip in. The AFC outside of the Chiefs, Ravens, and maybe Steelers isn't that good. I don't think it's impossible for the Bengals to beat teams like the Broncos, Patriots, Titans, Bills, etc... They are definitely better teams, but that defense will keep us in games...
  13. Been saying this. Glad Lou reads my posts...
  14. I need more videos of Burrow throwing, lol. So far this is the best we have...
