    2011 Bengals Discussion

    Mike Brown and Marvin Lewis still leading the charge, rookie offensive coordinator, rookie quarterback, very questionable offensive line, and we just lost our best defensive player -- and shortened preparation time too boot! This has the makings of 2002 all over again...
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Carolina Panthers last season, mirror image.

    The only saving grace might be the shortened preparation time. You mention the Bengals, but all 32 teams will suffer. This could early on be the sloppiest and most injury ridden season in NFL history as a result of the lockout.

    My prediction is we end up getting the no 1 overall pick in the draft next season. We might be lucky to win one or two games, but we will be in prime position to take Andrew Luck. Andy Dalton will be this years Jimmy Clausen.

    Carolina had an established running back and wide receiver.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    Yet finished with the worst record in the league and a coaching change.

    I'll concede the running backs, but Steve Smith is on the downside of his career. Carolina was even discussed as a possibility for AJ Green.

    The comparison is more with Jimmy Clausen and Andy Dalton. Both capable college QBs who draft stock slipped (Clausen worse than Dalton), but the teams finished worse off and took a top flight QB the next year. Carolina with Cam Newton, the Bengals IMO will be either Luck or Barkley.

    I don't disagree with the Carolina comparison, except that I think the Bengals are in a worse position.

    Likely bad enough to be able to draft Andrew Luck and then pass on him.

    Nah. They'll seemingly have Luck wrapped up and then go and win the last two meaningless games to slide to the 2nd or 3rd pick.

    I think Luck and his father are intelligent enough to tell the Bengals to kick rocks.

    How many times has this happened in the draft? The two that I can remember are Eli and Elway 20 odd years ago. It doesn't happen often and I doubt Luck does that. As bad as the Bengals are Palmer won and had his chances to win here. IMO Palmer wasn't as successful as he wanted to be more because of him than what surrounded him.

    3 wins tops. Rinse. Repeat.
