    Bengals sign LB Dhani Jones

    Will it help shore up the defense?

    I know the name, not much about the player. First thought was special teams help though...

    The talking head I heard on ESPN was pretty high on him...

    wish we could have signed Tank Johnson... he'd fit in great in Cincinnati.

    Not sure how good a tackler he is these days though.

    lol Tank Johnson is awesome. I seriously might have taken a chance on the career criminal.

    Dhani Jones is a fruit loop.

    It's way too late for Jones to help stop the vaunted Brownie offense. Maybe he'll help in December.

    Same ol Bengals. Until they realize that they have ZERO pass rush they won't win in this league. Football is about as simple as it gets and yet Marvin continues to show he has no clue. PUT PRESSURE ON THE QB! It's that simple.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Re: Bengals sign LB Dhani Jones

    Going into the season, I thought the linebackers could be a strength of the Bengals. But then it was pretty much confirmed that David Pollack won't return this year, Odell Thurman wasn't reinstated, Eric Henderson was put on IR, Edgerton Hartwell was cut, and Rashad Jeanty has been battling injury. With Lemar Marshall and Dhani Jones being signed, I think they have five players worthy of starting for three linebacker spots, but I think the problem is that the only one of them close to being a star or playmaker is Ahmad Brooks. The way the defense is designed is for players to step up and make plays, and only a few of the starters can actually do that. Until Peko, Joseph, Hall, Williams, Geathers, and Brooks step up and make plays every week, I think the Bengals defense will have a lot of inconsistency this year.

    Why didn't they just resign Hartwell?

    My guess is that it has something to do with special teams.

    Maybe they should re-sign James Francis...he could certainly use the money.

    That's what they have been trying to do. The reason the Bengals lost was that Bresnehan used the same blitzes against the Browns he did in week one. They need to mix it up. You can't keep calling the same plays.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Any team that pays that much for Justin Smith and Robert Geathers is just clueless. Neither is consistent enough to warrant the kind of cash they are getting. Justin Smith is just useless.
