    This D-line could go from bad, to very good.

    IF this D-line does become good, then the LBs are better because they can do more. The secondary gets better because the QBs and RBs are scrambling to get away from pressure.

    The defense suddenly is better across the board and can allow the offense to play better.

    A few simple moves could change the Bengals into a serious contender in a hurry.

    C'mon now. Where were you when the Mike Brown Sucks classes were being taught? Did the miss the essay test during finals on "Why the Bengals Will Never Win?" under MB?

    From Foxsports.com:
    Jets DT Robertson not going to Cincy

    Mar 03, 2008 | 8:02AM |

    report this Despite numerous indications that a deal would go down, the Cincinnati Bengals once again have failed to trade for a new defensive tackle.

    FOXSports.com has learned that Dewayne Robertson of the New York Jets, who met with Bengals officials at team headquarters on Monday, will not be traded to Cincinnati.

    Robertson has two years remaining on the rookie deal he signed as the No. 4 pick of the 2003 draft. He is set to earn $1.5 million in base salary this season.

    Robertson, who spoke Sunday night to Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, has been a poor fit in the 3-4 defensive scheme New York installed when Eric Mangini became head coach in 2006. Robertson, 26, would likely be better suited to play in a 4-3 system as a penetrating-style defensive tackle.

    The Bengals thought they had an agreement Friday with Detroit to acquire defensive tackle Shaun Rogers. But a contractual issue nullified the deal, leading to the Lions instead agreeing to send Rogers to Cleveland for a third-round draft pick and cornerback Leigh Bodden.

    Robertson became expendable in New York when the Jets acquired defensive tackle Kris Jenkins in a Friday trade with Carolina. A source said the new Jets contract Jenkins signed includes $9.5 million in guaranteed money and a $4.5 million roster bonus due in March. The total value of the five-year contract is $30.25 million with $18 million coming in the first three seasons, the source said.

    Media reports have stated Jenkins was set to earn $20 million in guaranteed money from the Jets

    Yep. From pft.com:

    ROBERTSON DEAL ISN'T HAPPENING
    POSTED 5:23 p.m. EST, March 3, 2008

    For the second time since Friday, a deal that the Bengals thought they'd make to upgrade a subpar defense has fallen apart.

    Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com reports that the trade between the Jets and the Bengals for New York defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson is off.

    The sticking point was Cincy's insistence that Robertson re-do a contract that is set to pay him $9.8 million in 2008. Unless and until the Jets find a team for whom Robertson is willing to take a haircut, the likelihood is that Robertson eventually will be cut before a $3 million roster bonus comes due in June.

    This is terrible.
    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.

    Even if this deal falls through, isn't there a possibility that we can pick him up in June when he is cut. He might be more amenable to a contract renegotiation when he is unemployed.

    That could be...may even cost them less, which we all know, is the bottom line for the Bengals.

    I believe they had about $30 million in cap space going into free agency, but not quite unlimited funds. They have a pretty good cap specialist, believe his name is Rob Chudzinski, who is fairly well known for being able to work the cap, backloading some deals and frontloading others, and of course working the bonus and guaranteed money aspect of their contracts. Frees up a good bit of money and for the last three or four years they've been pretty healthy cap-wise.
