    Why didn't they franchise and trade TJ rather than just let him go w/o receiving any compensation? (Similar to what the Pats are doing with Cassel, although they may also consider holding onto him depending on Brady's rehab)

    Gawd I hope not, which means it will probably happen.

    first youre thinking out of the box when you say trade, this is the same team that passed on New Orleans whole draft and took Akili Smith and was offered Washington's 1st for 2 years and passed, second TJ wouldnt been this years Chad if they wouldve franchised him, me personally Im tired of the crybaby crap every year and I dont care if they go 0-16, just let the crying stop already.

    I don't have a problem franchising Graham, I'm not really interested in the Bengals trying to find another decent kicker. There are way more pressing needs.

    I agree imagine the Bengals with their 1 scout trying to draft the right kicker, everybody forgets how long it took them to get Graham, anyone remember Travis Dorsch

    I was fooled on that one, I thought Dorsch was going to be good.

    Epic fail
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Graham is arguably the best active kicker in the NFL, so he was probably seeking to be the highest-paid K in the NFL. By franchising him, the Bengals might have saved some money.

    What's his FG% in the playoffs?

    He's one-for-one on FGs and two-for-two on XPs. You can't beat perfection.

    In clutch situations, however, his FG percentage is typically as good as Brad St. Louis' snaps. According to bengals.com, with the chance to take the lead in the fourth quarter, Graham is 7-for-9, and with the chance to tie the game in the fourth quarter he's 3-for-4.

    Are you thinking of the botched snap immediately before half?

    Is that what happened? I was thinking it was a shank by Shane for some reason. (And I was at the game! Haha, pretty sad)

    And Lord knows the Bengals' are good at doing that. $11 mil+ under last year and $25mm under the cap currently. (bef rookie/injury settlement dollars)

    Yep couldn't have signed him last season after cutting Rudi and Willie, and using that cap room this year instead. I guess they weren't sure yet if he was worth keeping then? <shrug>

    I don't see anything changing.

    Are you thinking of the next season when Graham's miss against the Steelers sent the game to overtime where, after a Santonio Holmes waltz through our secondary, we were eliminated from playoff contention?
