Burrow wants to go to team committed to winning SB

True. It was a pretty passionate denial by, I think, his Dad. Said he was offended that people thought they’d do that, so that statement will look pretty bad if he does.

Eh, it could go largely forgotten, 'cept by the fans of the jilted team.

After the speech Joe Burrow gave when he won the Heisman for him to not be willing to go back and play in Ohio would be an absolutely horrible PR move. This is probably just a negotiating tactic to get the most guaranteed money possible from Cincy. I would be shocked if his agent came out and said he won't play for the Bengals. Although I wouldn't blame him for doing so. That football team is mediocrity incarnate. Until someone can get that team away from Mike Brown they will continue to be mediocre.

This means nothing.  He'll be happy to go ot any team, a quote that you can find in the article that this nonstory is being made from. 

 

As far as "pulling an Eli," that had nothing to do with going to a losing organization and everything to do with playing in the same conference as his brother.  They hated playing each other, but that's obviously impossible.  So the next best option was to not go through one another en route to a super bowl.  Completely different thing.  Burrow's candid comment is being read into WAY too much.

It is interesting what Carson Palmer said because Burrow is going to be training with Carson’s brother. 

 

I dont think it means much. I think it’s basically just something I think every number one pick would say.

 

Now saying that the bengals could trade that  pick and move down a few spots and still get a QB. People have mentioned how Herbert could be a better fit to play there when it’s cold because he has a stronger arm.

I don't think he meant anything by the comment, but.... If you were a player with that kind of draft value/likely the #1 pick why wouldn't you try to force a trade and make sure you didn't get stuck on a team like Cin, Cleve., etc... I don't know why any top draft pick would willingly goto a dumpster fire team without trying to get out of it.

I agree with the bolded entirely.

 

On your last paragraph though, it seems like the kind of thing that people from other teams would say because they don't want them to make the decision to draft the best QB in the draft.  It's like when a dynasty fantasy league GM comes to me with a trade proposal and says, "You look thin at WR because your best WR is hurt for 4 weeks.  How about I trade you two middle age average, WRs for Ezekiel Elliott?" 

 

Like, nah bro.  I'm not going be stupid and make a detrimental long term decision just because there is a short term workaround.  Hate those trade offers (and I let them know it lol).

Here is the video where he made these comments. This kid is so impressive. I hope the bengals do him right if that is where he goes.

 

 

I hate to say this but him going to the Bengals may ruin his career. IMO he is one hell of a prospect but going to a team like the Bengals may be doom.

Hasn’t his reps said he isn’t going to pull an Eli? I mean, not that means he definitely won’t do it, but still.

 

Hey, I had suggested this a while ago. :) 

 

I still feel Mike Brown is committed to selling tickets more than he is winning a SB. The lack of free agent forays during the Palmer era plus other things should give us a glimpse of that.

May?

 

you are too kind 

 

Brown is hated by the Bengals fan base

 

He needs to bring in a football mind to change the ways

 

A bigger part of the issue is the free agents almost NEVER want to go there.....

The Bengals are sitting in the bottom half of the salary cap, so it's not like they haven't been spending money. If not spending money equates to not wanting to win a SB, the Colts have the fingered pointed at them... Bengals are spending more, but they still suck.. 

 

As far as the Bengals are concerned, it's just a bad team, with bad owners, and bad FO...

They are spending more than us and still stink, shows you they have no clue how to run a football team.

Yup. I would have no problem telling them don't draft me. Many players have wasted away on their roster.

If Burrow goes to the Bengals I can see him not even having the career Luck had. Luck still had a very good career despite retiring early, it wasn't a great career but very good. Having said that Luck got drafted by us which is a great franchise and he still had Reggie Wayne here eventhough we were in rebuild mode. Reggie was a huge help in Luck's rookie season. I have a feeling Burrow is really going to struggle in his rookie season with a team like the Bengals, where Luck went 11-5 with us.

This doesn't sound like anything to be fair. Just a generic answer about wanting to go to a team that wants to win. I'm not sure it was meant as any sort of a indication about his attitude towards the Bengals.

Boomer, Palmer, and Dalton were all good QBs that wasted their years with Cinci. I think Burrow could look good there early, but simply die on the vine and lose passion waiting for the FO to truly improve the franchise.

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.
