    Dalton, with the right supporting cast, can take you to the playoffs. Maybe all the way. He just can't get pressured, or he folds. Flacco looks like poop now even with a clean pocket.
    Dalton had a couple of good years where he did ok with pressure, and generally, pressure isn't an issue with him because of his quick release. It just doesn't come up that much. But, last year was a disaster, as we knew it would be with that Line and no Green to heave it to.

    Agreed. I think last season really damaged Dalton.

    A change of scenery really would do wonders for him. But I don't see the value of releasing him if there is no one left to spend that 17 million on. Dalton's a good guy, and could help Burrow out quite a bit. The only way that backfires is if Burrow gets injured early and Andy squeaks out a 5-11 or whatever. On the other hand, If Burrow gets off to a fast start but has an injury that sidelines him briefly, it would be good to have Dalton in there.

    I don't think it would be smart to release Dalton at this point.
    He said he was curious about the crowd but didn’t want to stay and talk. “I’m heading out,” he said. “This is a super-spreader event.”

    Well deserved.

    He's had trouble handling the double teams in the past year or two, but before that, he was an absolute beast.

    On another team, he'd be a lock for the HOF.

    Who controls the money, gives the OK? LOL Katie had to be involved in the negotiations/signing of those contracts. Now if they're "backing off" as far as the talent evaluation area, and leaving that to Tobin/Taylor, and coaching staff, then that's possibly a solid sign.

    I'm enjoying reading these recent reports and chatter that there are "true believers" within the Bengals, including MB, of Justin Herbert. And that it could be an intelligent move by the Bengals. IMO, no it would not, and it's not gonna happen .... but it's simply sound strategy to look at all candidates.

    Not dissing Herbert ... but he's no Burrow IMO.

    As for Taylor - You'll know, this draft, upcoming season, whether he is the guy or not. Gotta give him a chance to implement his system and acquire the players, get rid of dead wood.

    He'd be even more impressive if it wasn't for his injury in '13.

    It’s hard to accurately peg where each of the direct reasons lie for the Chris Henry story, and where in each category we want to blame. Maybe a combo of born with low iq, unfortunate life experiences, low educational opportunities during formative years, and CTE.

    Ultimately when you see the same issues over and over, even when the person seems to understand it’s wrong - they have my sympathy, as it just seems the guy didn’t have the fundamental life skills as a well adjusted adult should have. It sucks for everyone involved, and I can’t begin to pretend I lived a day in the life in his shoes to understand why it all happened and why he couldn’t dig himself out of it.

    I do know that it’s really easy for people like you to spot down on people like that - and I find your motivations for having this schtick as sad as any of it.

    Again, the entire point of my original post was that the Bengals were put in a position to pick guys like that because our drafting/scouting guys like Henry and homophobic female abusers like Joe Mixon. And we'll sit there cheering on those guys like that come September.

    I called the Bengals Front Office. Or tried to anyway.

    Apparently they have their Economy Savings Party Line temporarily suspended, so as to not be charged during this pandemic period of inactivity.

    Hobson's been furloughed but he keeps writing articles for some reason.

    The thermostat for the heating at the PBS offices, remains off or if cold enough outside, locked at 61 degrees. Until the temperature outside gets warm enough, then the AC is off or locked at 82.

    More news later.

    Gotta keep it light. I'll be happy if there even are games this fall, honestly.

    Same. I can't imagine there will be fans at the games given recent news about how specifically terrible large events are for spread, but I still hope they have some kind of season.

    Re: 2020 Cincinnati Bengals

    So Mel Kiper has his new mock out today and the Bengals going with Josh Jones in the second.

    Also suggested the 6’7 Jones could move inside to guard if needed. Can’t really see it.

    Also has Denzel Mims going one pick later to Indianapolis. If both players are on the board, who do you go with?

    Kenneth Murray and Patrick Queen are gone in the first round.
