    This just in...Odom's deal falls through due to the Bengals' front offices inability to find a pen for the signatures.

    Mike Brown unable to work the fax machine to send the necessary documents to the league office... Odom signs with Vikings instead.

    That's one step. We're going to need more help though.
    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.

    I'm happy to see the Bengals finally do something and hopefully it sticks this time!

    Re: ODOM A BENGAL

    Does anyone know how good Odom is? Is he close/worse/better than Rogers and Robertson? Thanks.

    Two different positions. Odom is a DE who is similar to Geathers. He did have like eight sacks last year I think.

    Rogers is a couple years older, and has shown flashes of being the best DT in the NFL. Odom is a good consistant player. Granted they play two different positions, but talent wise I'd go with Rogers.

    The good thing for the Bengals in this case is that Odom is fairly quiet and is a good guy, while Rogers is a loud mouth that doesn't work hard.

    I hope Odom is an upgrade from Smith, who I think was better than people gave him credit for. My real concern is not at the ends, but inside the line. They simply need a giant, fat man in the middle to clog up the run. Someone who can't be pushed off the line.

    Re: ODOM A BENGAL

    I heard this morning that Odom had 8 sacks and 29 QB pressures. Those numbers would seem to indicate that he's good at getting to the QB.

    Now if they could just acquire a quality DT before the draft ...

    Yeah, those are pretty good numbers, but keep in mind that the Titans' D-Line also had Albert Haynesworth and Kyle Vanden Bosch - two of the best in the NFL at their respective positions. I'm unsure whether or not Odom will be able to continue to get pressure now that he's more of a focal point than a forgotten man.

    Your last point of the need for a solid DT couldn't be more true. I really think there's a decent chance that Sedrick Ellis falls to us at 9. If we can add either him or a guy like Robertson, the Bengals' D might just improve dramatically next year.

    I saw a couple truckers at the Flying J buffet yesterday who would fit the bill.
