    Myles Garrett on Burrow
    "The guy is tough, He took a lot of shots, and he bounced right back up. He was still putting deep ones on the money and he always kept his eyes downfield. He was never really worried about the rush unless it was really on him. That is better than some veteran quarterbacks.”

    I think the D can be fixed guys just have to get healthy Atkins and Daniels are big parts of the D that gave 200 yds rushing and they are missing.

    The line will not be fixed this year...Burrow is getting hammered and Mixon has no room to run, anything he creates it takes all out effort for him to get 5 yds.

    Good to see Sample step up after he was labled a bust.

    How good is Brandon Wilson he's the ghost of Stanford Jennings back there.

    Burrow is better than I expected. Two games in a short period of time without Rookie Minicamps and without a preseason is a tall task.

    Tee Higgins may end up becoming a good WR, but he should have never been that pick. They should have gone with the best T or G.

    The next draft has to be T and G in that order.

    Their key players are getting old and look to be slowing a step. Dunlap failed to get much pressure last night, AJ looks slow, and Atkins has been unable to see the field.

    Thursday night games suck.

    I'll add defensive ends to the mix here. Hubbard, Lawson, and Dunlap have been beyond pedestrian these first two weeks. That will also not be fixed during the year. Having Atkins back might help them a bit, but Dunlap seems like he's aged rapidly the past two seasons while Hubbard may be the most below average d lineman to be treated like a star in the Bengals media book.

    Saw someone on twitter post

    Rd 1 OL
    Rd 2 DL
    Rd 3 OL etc...right down through

    Bad thing about it is they have attempted to address the line and just end up whiffing...they do have the kid from Miss St that they picked up from Miami at this point a guy working at Krogers in the meat dept would be better than what they have on the right side.

    No push in the interior means you can get guys like Hubbard, Dunlap and Lawson trying to go wide all the time...Atkins should help as will Daniels. I agree the play has been uninspired, linebackers were substandard last night with Von Bell leading us in tackles from his safety spot.

    It's a mess right now...

    Indeed. A mess. Funny how the only time a Bengals D lineman was in Baker's face he threw a pick!

    Two things scare me with Burrow moving forward and neither of them are in his control:

    1. If the offensive line doesn’t improve, he will not make it through the season. Period.

    2. If he does make it through the season he is going to be playing from behind because of how bad the defense is. If he averages anything close to what he did last night passing Tim Couch might be an accurate comparison. The difference is Couch did his damage playing for Hal Mumme/Mike Leach at Kentucky.

    Re: 2020 Bengals Thread Part 2: New Era or More of the Same?

    One thing to note, unless he really turns it on, AJ is gone after this season. They will have a lot of cap space to go get a FA, whether they do that or not is anyone's guess.

    So far Burrow has gotten very good reviews from NFL people. The first few years of a rookie QB's contract is when you can really spend money elsewhere. I do think players will want to play with Burrow.

    I think the Bengals will win anywhere from 4-6 games. I think Burrow has looked promising so far and will win more than one or two games. That may put them out of the running for Sewell but they should be able to revamp their OLine in the draft.

    Burrows strengths are his curse...he is able to get away from pressure and he is very poised in the pocket, plus he wants to win. So doing what it takes to win is getting him hammered which long term is counter productive. the post game quotes are horrifying in regards to that...

    Re: 2020 Bengals Thread Part 2: New Era or More of the Same?

    What I just realized last night and really bothers me is that after they went 2-14 last year, they had all their draft picks, each beginning a new round, and with those 7 selections, they found exactly one guy who could start on such a bad team Just one starter in the entire draft! I know expecting a bunch of all-pros or all picks to be starters is not reasonable, but I think that getting 2-3 starters from that draft for a 2-14 team is a fair expectation.

    Higgins was a bad pick IMO. But he will probably be the #3 WR come midseason.

    They have two LB's who are seeing significant time on the field right now.
