Pascal is not playing tonight either. I bet that means we carry six WR.

We will carry 5 WRs like we always do.  We will have one or two 'available' on the practice squad.

Why would he be sitting and not playing then. I guess he could be trade bait.

Tell got beat on the sideline throw but was still in position to make a solid tackle. He's gotta have 4-5 with several of them in open field plus a couple pass breakups including one in the end zone. Cemented his spot if you ask me.

 

E.J. Speed has got to have 10 tackles. He's diagnosed plays quickly, shed blocks and made solid tackles at the line and in space. Far outplayed Adams and Franklin this preseason fo sho! Cemented his spot. 

 

Pascal and Rogers are making the roster purely based off of special teams skills - not because they've outplayed the others.

Adams is good. Speed already had a spot. Franklin, may get cut. 

 

Tell had a spot the minute they traded Hariston.

 

Rodger I agree with you I like Hogan, I think Pascal, is better. Would love Hogan to stick somehow, practice squad?

:D

Yeah, that was not a good half by Kelly

...below his standards...only 13/16 for 138 yds and one running TD. 

He went into the game 41/57 for 445 yds in 1/3, 1/3 and 1/2 games.

We are getting spoiled, people.

Does this kid not know that he can call a fair catch???

He's probably trying too hard.  Trying to make something happen.

 

Well, he IS making something happen, but it's all bad at this point.

Penny Hart = JoJo Natson. Talented but jittery.

 

Ironically JoJo is now pretty solid 2 years later for the Rams.

we carried 6 several weeks late last year. 

 

"like we always do" regardless means little as we only have a one year sample size with Reich's O.

Jojo made multiple big plays in preseason and had some great punt returns with us which earned him the job on the Rams. 

 

Penny Hart has done nothing but muff two punts.

Man Tell is all over the place.  Captain Marvell.  

Yeah.  That kid has a LOT of energy.  Bounced up after that last tackle like it was a 2 minute drill.

Jojo had one really bad game for us and he was gone.  I had high hopes for him to stick.

I think the coaches know what they have in those 3 guys. Might have already decided to keep, cut, or try and trade any of the 3

Is it just me, or does Walker remind you of a gazelle?  He always seems so flighty.

Are you talking about him or the ball he throws, lol.

wow low attendance

Nadine, I also notice that too.  A busy night of local  entertainment  in Cincinnati sports.  Colts are playing the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium, the Reds are playing at the Miami Marlins right now at South Florida, and the University Of Cincinnati Bearcats football team are playing the UCLA Bruins on their campus.  And all three events started at the same time right after 7:00 PM Eastern Time!

 

Not to mention a few high school football games probably being played right now that we are not aware of in the Cincy area.

I'm no QB evaluator, but it looks like he actually has good footwork.

 

Phillips making another case for him to stick.

OK I tried to defend Walker last week with the horrible offensive line play, but no more. He is trash. I thought he was really turning a corner last year, but I'm scared to have him as the backup.

He might have good footwork, but he can't hit the broad side of a barn.

We'll find out after cuts.  I'm not so sure he's safe.  I actually think he's gone.

Nope. They have seen enough. Ballard will sign a vet or a qb cut on Saturday.

But you have to keep him for the two weeks of Kelly's suspension or we'd have no backup QB?

Nah.  We'll find someone on the wire after cuts or we'll sign one of the vets we brought in.

Unless we sign someone in the next 3 days, he'll be here after Saturday. 

Honestly I'm fine with rolling the dice for 2 weeks until CK is back.

I don't think they will bring in someone for 2 weeks that doesn't even know the playbook....I think he's safe. Just my opinion of course.

They brought in Briskett a week before the season started and he ran the show in 2017.  It can be done.

Walker blows sign somebody.

I also noticed the QB for the bengals tonight is the guy we passed on signing for Kelly.

haha...that is very true.

 

It all depends on how management feels about those two games.  If they feel they can "throw" those 2 games then they just roll with Walker.  If they want to stay competitive then they sign someone.  They clearly have the money to blow on a vet for one year.

    • JB's 2020 signing bonus is already guaranteed. That's the only thing. That was locked in Sept of this year. So really there's nothing that will signal "JB is the future" unless the FO comes out and says it.
    • I think you take each game separately.   at Saints Game I think everything is status quo. If and only if the game gets out of hand, you go to Kelly and see how he reacts. Nobody will blame JB or CK for losing to the Saints on the road. And pulling JB if it gets out of hand doesn't necessarily say JB isn't the guy. Also, don't play any hobbled players unless they are close to 100%. It's just silly to risk additional injury in this type of game.   Home vs Panthers Game It's the last home game and our most likely win, so laying a turd will be awful for season ticket holders and 2020 sales. If JB is not effective, AND you've made the decision to draft a QB, go to CK in the 2nd half because it doesn't matter at this point. Losing this game to a bad 5-8 team without their starting QB would be a very bad look, and an even worse look if JB is the guy at the helm all game. If we have the lead or it's close, stick with JB, but if not make the change. Play hobbled players as long as they're close to being 100% so that game goers don't feel slighted. I could see the boo birds and Chad Kelly fan club be loud in this game if things don't right.   at Jacksonville This is a big ?? game. At this point it's not about feelings. It's about draft position and evaluation.  If you've made the decision to move off JB, you need to think of draft position, and honestly most serious fans will likely be thinking the same. And if you're going to draft or go in a different direction, it really doesn't matter how this looks in terms of JB. A loss vs a win could make a 4-6 swing in draft position, and a W for wins sake isn't really worth losing that much position. It's not a home game, so absolutely rest anyone that's not 100% healthy. Wrap TY in bubble wrap and put him on ice. Don't outright sit healthy starters, but get back ups in the mix and especially ones that are rooks or ones you're trying to evaluate. Limit snaps of your franchise guys like Nelson, Leonard, Houston, etc.. Guys like Speed, Johnson, Dulin, Haeg, Kelly, Tell, etc all should get a nice % of snaps. 
    • Agreed.   Ebron shut it down, apparently to clean up his ankles. Probably thinking it'll help him get a contract for next year.    None of us know what amount of pain either goes thru, or went thru.   Luck didnt quit- he realized his career was headed where he no longer wanted to go, and RETIRED.  I'm 65; believe me- that's a subject I ponder daily....
    • No one will sign here to lay with JB without a tremendous overpay.  He makes everyone look worse and appear worth less.
    • This would be the best option for them.  If they were patient enough to sit through one more year of being bad they could trade back and push their 1st round picks into next year, rebuild most of their team with young players and grab Lawrence or Fields next year.They would be stacked and ready to take over that division when Brady is gone.
