    Re: How bad are the Bengals going to be next year?

    Luck doesn't strike me as the type that won't sign, but Carson never seemed like a quitter either.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    It's his second game ever at this level, what do you expect?

    If he can manage to not be taken off the field in an ambulance by the end of the season he's doing pretty good.

    Carson's not a quitter. Carson is making a stand for all of you.

    Week 4 against Buffalo may just determine the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.

    He should have made that stand years ago by not taking all that up front money on a contract extension.

    I could see Luck pulling an Eli Manning for one reason:

    His dad is Oliver Luck, a former NFL QB and current WVU Athletic Director. I wouldn't be surprised to see him get involved at some point similar to Archie Manning and try to influence where his son ends up.

    Carson didn't have the family support of somebody who knows the NFL. Andrew does and I think it will be an impact.

    Re: How bad are the Bengals going to be next year?

    So do you think the Bengals will keep Pryor at QB or turn him into a TE/WR?

    Since the USFL folded there has been one player that has refused to sign with a team. I could be wrong here but I would say that there is about a 1% chance that Luck would refuse to sign with the team that drafted him. That was Eli Manning who had an ego the size of NY because of his dad and his brother. And if the Bengals would be so lucky to have Luck refuse to sign and get the better QB the way the Chargers got I would be happy. For all the hoopla that Eli brought around he he has been a league average QB while Rivers had become a top 5 QB.

    FWIW I don't see the Bengals getting the #1 pick. The schedule is so bad they will win some games. Heck I was even somewhat impressed with the way they finished the 1st half when everything went against them from the get go.

    Luck won't have to play the game of holdout. If he doesn't want to play for the Bengals (or any other team that drafts #1) he doesn't have to come out. He's only a junior this year

    There's no reason to even make it that complicated. He can always stick around for his senior year like Peyton did

    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    NFL teams can cut players, generally speaking, in the middle of a contract. So why shouldn't players be able to quit in the middle too?
