Oliver can't play the nose. Billings would have to start. And Dunlap would need to add weight to play end or lose weight to play OLB.

I'd much rather we stay as is in a 43. 

I agree we have the personnel for a 4-3.

so...

Geno- Oliver- Dunlap

Hubbard- Vigil- Burfict- Lawson

 or do you think we nab a linebacker to replace Burfict. Aside from Devin White, Mack Wilson, or Devin Bush I don't think any other player would be a plug and play.

Or swap Geno and Oliver at Nose.  Either way that would be the 3-down pass rushing lineup.  You have 5 guys attacking the QB, who better get that ball out quickly. On first down, it would probably be Billings at nose.

As for LB, address it in FA.  KJ Wright, CJ Mosley, Stephone Anthony, Denzel Perryman, Kwon Alexander, etc...  Plenty of guys in FA that we could add...

I don't think it really matters tbh if we play 4-3 or 3-4.  Play 4-3 base, and switch to 3-4 alignments as well.  Multiple fronts/alignments is where the NFL is going...

I used to think this too. But our DL aren’t all that different from the Rams and they run a 3-4

I've been having dreams of Geno Akins, Carlos Dunlap, and Ed Oliver on the line with Lawson and Hubbard at OLB.  If only...

I'd see Hubbard as more of a DE in that setup.  Dunlap to olb.

 

Honestly,  the only real personnel change you need for the 3-4 is an olb that fits the mold. Lawson has that locked, so the transition wouldn't be too hard.

I’m honestly surprised we never tried moving Shawn Williams to nickel linebacker when we were thin.

You're honestly surprised that a team run by Marvin Lewis instead played the corpse of Vincent Rey?

Hey man, Rey knew his assignments, and like, showed up for meetings on time, and was polite and stuff. He earned that spot.

Hello Bengals Friends.

I have Sam Hubbard in a dynasty league and was just wondering what your thoughts were on his play as a rookie and his role moving forward.

He is currently my third end behind Cam Jordan and Trey Flowers.

If the Bengals will let him play end and not force him as a DT, he could be solid.  He'll never be a 12 sack guy, but he has the ability to get half of that every year.

Great news. I didn't want him anyway.

I hope we go Elko, Manuel or Pleasant.

Agreed. Y'all might have lucked out with Grantham rejecting you. It'll depend on which coach you eventually hire.

Surely there's a ball boy somewhere that will take the job, right?
