    And yes, we have issues on defense, but fixing the front seven (where the issues lay) isn't as such a daunting task as everybody seems. We SHOULD get two starters for the front seven in this years draft and if we just sign a quality free agent at LB or DL, we'll see a drastic improvement, mark my words. All the Bengals need to do is shore up and retool, not rebuild.
    I hope you're right. I just don't see it.

    Re: Bengals to Draft Ninth

    I can't see Haynesworth and Suggs not being resigned by their clubs. Infact, I'd go on record to say that there will only be a few worthwhile FAs actually on the market this offseason. Just goes to show you how vital the draft is how bad drafts really hurt you in the long haul (2005).
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Sadly, I'd be pretty happy with just one of those happening. All 3 would be great, but I doubt any happen.

    Wasn't Haynesworth all ready re-signed recently? I swear I read that somewhere.

    Wouldn't Haynesworth be considered a bad character move? I think that would signify the bengals looking more towards winning than looking at high character guys.

    Dorsey worries me that his body might not be up for his weight.

    I agree, especially as rookies, a DT is rarely exemplary.
    Draft a LB, sign a better lineman than Smith and go back to the playoffs.

    I'm all for not re-signing any of the UFA's. Landon would be the only one I would think twice about, but he's from Purdue, and I hate having to cheer for Boilermakers, past or present.

    Re: Bengals to Draft Ninth

    With the 9th pick in the 2008 NFL draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select University of Michigan running back Mike Hart!

    Just a little Bengals humor..... I hope

    Unfortunately my crystal ball for the Bengals' options with the 9th pick doesn't yield an impact player that will magically help this pathetic franchise. Conversely, I don't see any such unicorn in this coming draft, so all teams are in the same boat.

    The best thing that could happen for the Bengals is for Mike Brown to cease to exist. I just blame him for all the Bengals' woes, as well as drafting Chris Perry. I don't know if that's fair or not, but at this point I could care less. Every year goes by and it just reinforces how horrible that pick truly was.

    Re: Bengals to Draft Ninth

    It's not just a matter of improving the talent on this Bengals team, it's a matter of improving the culture, and the character, of that locker room. And that, my friend, is easier said than done.

    I have no confidence whatsoever in this ownership to turn things around. Sooner or later, with no GM, and virtually no scouts, Marvin Lewis is going to jump ship and flee to a place where he can succeed.

    Re: Bengals to Draft Ninth

    Man, 4 underclass Buckeyes in the 1st round in that mock. I'm sure glad Tressel has this program reloading every year. Last year OSU lost Ginn, Gonzalez, and Pittman early and look to lose 4 more juniors this year.

    As far as the Bengals go, I'd be happy with Ellis or Gholston. If by some miracle the Bengals could sign Haynesworth, they could draft Gholston and switch to a 3-4 with Peko and Haynesworth in the middle and Gholston and Geathers playing between DE and OLB.
    Matta = Really good
