I don’t even know how long I will be able to watch lol. Although we lost the Steelers game I hope this turns out like that game was for a half. But Wentz isn’t rivers so we will see.

I am right there with you. A friend and I normally watch the game together and make a thing of it, but this week I told him I am just going to stay home and work on some stuff around the house. Just too poor of an on field product to get excited about.

I hope we didn’t pay 100 million to a player who was supposed to have fixed his ankle to now have chronic ankle issues.

This is my fear. I fully expect to get bashed for this, but I was already worried Darius was overpaid for his talent level. I know Ballard is big on bringing back his own guys so I knew he would overpay Darius some. But if Darius has chronic ankle issues, his contract is gonna cause issues for awhile.

His ankle issues go clear back to his rookie year so he does seem to have chronic issues.

Well thats good news.
Without Willis and Rhodes would be a long afternoon (not that WITH Willis C2 is much better.. ).

Let's hope we played really conservative with Fischer and he's just ready to play football.

JD on the RT will not do much worse than "Smith W1 version" (assuming that horrible showing W1 was because of his injury).

I think Pryor might be playing RT.

Maybe if Fisher plays davenport plays RT. To tell you the truth we should just play Fries. He has experience at tackle and can’t be worse. 

After daven poets performance last week they should try Pryor see if he improved . If he struggles switch in daven port like they did last year with Clark and green .

Donr expect Leonard to play much this year. How did he have surgery in June and still not have it fixed.

 

 

 

That's very worrying about Darius. Potentially playing a whole season on an injured ankle could be dangerous long term. This sounds like a guy who is going to end up on IR.

 

Nelson needs to be careful too. Just because Wentz was able to get back by Week 1 doesn't mean he had to be either. He is a bigger guy anyway, it probably just took his foot longer to heal. He should just sit a game or two out until its fully ready instead of risking further damage.

 

That injury report is a disaster.

    • Depending what they do with Ryan, Foles, MAC, Kelly, and Moore the Colts could free up to $40 million in cap space. Plus, only 51 players count against the cap so they are counting players against the cap that will fall off. 
    • First of all I just have to say I have a strong distaste for Tom Brady but I’d sign him in a heartbeat under a year contract and then draft CJ Stroud or Levis whoever falls to us at number 4. Have them sit behind Brady and truly learn how to be a QB in the NFL. With the remaining picks provide him with some weapons and protection and bolster the defensive side of the ball. 
    • Agreed, but how much of "a better player or two MORE" does a team need at the end of every season?    That's why the teams strive to find the prototypical or modern era franchise QB, so that the QB can make that game winning drive in last minute or a couple of comeback game changing drives needed in playoffs against strong contenders, in addition to strong and consistent QB play throughout regular season. Such QBs deserve to get paid, and Bengals have found that franchise QB in Burrow who has proven so much BEFORE getting paid a lot.    Problem with the QB market is not that the likes of Rodgers, Burrow, Mahomes get paid... The problem is that barely above average QBs such as the likes of Cousins, Goff, Wentz, Jones, Carr, Watson (personal and legal problems), and few others continue to demand elite QB money and drive up the QB market when they don't deserve that kind of contract, while neither proving BEFORE OR AFTER getting that money.    If I'd wanna complain about QBs getting paid huge money that makes the team worse, I'd complain about those Pretenders who would get paid abhorrent, unproven and undeserved pay while these QBs make their team worse by BOTH blocking large part of the cap space and NOT playing to the highest level of QB play their contracts would suggest.    Back to your point, yes, Bengals would lose a key player or more both in offense and defense when Burrow's contract peaks in salary cap space... But he's proven he can compensate that loss, which is not even close to the situation of not even having found our franchise QB yet, and still a better problem than having a QB who pretends to be a franchise QB not being able to win multiple playoff games. 
    • What’s more important a couple extra picks  or carter or Anderson . With carter and Anderson they have a player that can help them now.  There is no guarantee what a further draft looks like.  I doubt Carolina will offer them that many more picks. They could get Oline at 9 I guess but  is  there a tackle that will go that high.
    • Here’s a question for you…    A story surfaced this weekend….  Chicago would like to trade Fields for picks….  Stay at number one, and draft Young as their new QB.    Any thoughts on this?    Are you hearing or reading about this anywhere?
