    I heard he was shy, better than Rogers, though.

    He just kinda gave the people with questions not much to work with and there was a few awkward silences and Odom would look at the mic and the ground. He is really shy just from watching the video of the press conf.

    I hope the Bengals get both Ellis and Robertson. Dare to dream!

    Re: ODOM A BENGAL

    A guy who pressures the QB versus a guy who made plays. Lets hope those LBs can tackle if he doesn't get the QB.

    I do like the signing, just being cautious in my optimism.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: ODOM A BENGAL

    I will give you guys a Titan's fan point of view. Odom got far more money than what he was worth. I was hoping that the Titans would not waste alot of money on him. The Titans have been waiting on him to produce for a while now and this was his first decent year. As someone else pointed out, he had a great supporting cast recieving all the double teams. If I was a Bengals fan I would not expect much from Odom, because he is average at best.

    Well than, we replaced average (Justin Smith) with average (Antwan Odom). Except at a much cheaper price. Sounds good in my book!
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Who is also two years younger and registered six more sacks than Justin Smith did. He is also flexible and can play as a hybrid in a 3/4 defense if we do end up going that direction.

    Call it average if you want, but I call it an improvement.

    I was referring to James B.'s (a Titans' fan) post, where he called Odom average. I really do like the signing of Odom (especially since it's a lot less than what it would have cost to retain Smith), I just think we need a DT badly. We could have Julius Peppers and without anybody in the middle, it still wouldn't make a difference.

    That doesn't increase the quality of the team. According to everyone that has ever watched Odom he isn't an every down player. I'd like to think that he generates enough pressure on 3rd down to make the signing worth it alone. I'm inclined to believe the Bengals and Marvin Lewis honestly don't know how to find true defensive talent at reasonable cost. The Bengals have just been pathetic in the FA market with defensive players. If we still have John Thorton in the middle than I don't think Odom can make much of a difference.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Counting sacks don't tell much of a story. Remember Reinard Wilson racking up 9 sacks in 2001? How are we to assume that he can play the LEO position? He's 6'5 and most Titan fans say he doesn't have great lateral quickness.

    Remember I'm more pessimistic about the Bengals management than you are about the Reds. think about how I view most of these moves

    Re: ODOM A BENGAL

    I don't think this is a horrible move, and it's certainly better than doing nothing, but it would be foolish to think it will put the Bengals over the top. Hopefully the draft works out in a way that allows the Bengals to get an impact defensive lineman or two.
