Thread: Offseason, the sequel

  1. #41
    I won't make too much of the impressive start by John Ross, but yeah....the first day only happens once. Really great to see the positive performance knowing all eyes would be on him. Build on that.

    Richie Incognito's amazing retirement-clusterfug might have been my favorite story this offseason. Don't ruin things by actually signing him.

    Carlos Dunlap....I miss you already.

    Was Billy Price waiting to be annointed before signing his contract?

    Add their NHL run last year, and Nashville is pretty proud of itself these days.

    Bengals giving Cedric Ogbuehi a ‘clean slate’ to start OTAs
    True to his word, new Cincinnati Bengals offensive line coach Frank Pollack is giving Cedric Ogbuehi a chance to redeem himself in 2018. The Bengals hit the field for OTAs this week and Ogbuehi got a chance at both offensive tackle spots — with plans for him to compete at right guard as well.

    Cincinnati Bengals defense scooping up every ball in practice
    Early in the first Cincinnati Bengals OTA practice Tuesday, cornerback KeiVarae Russell broke up a Matt Barkley pass intended for rookie wide receiver Ka’Raun White to set off a wild sequence where multiple players batted the ball back in the air four or five times. Eventually linebacker Brandon Bell squeezed it for an interception, prompting new defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, who was standing in the middle of the field just a few feet from the action, to throw both fists in the air while letting loose with an emphatic “Yes.”

    Cincinnati Bengals' Frank Pollack debuts new-look offensive line
    The new era of offensive line play for the Bengals officially kicked off Tuesday. For the first time new coach Frank Pollack sent his group on the field in a real practice with the beginning of OTAs. This marked the official launch of Pollack’s overhauled scheme as he takes the place of former longtime offensive line coach Paul Alexander, who swapped spots and is now in Pollack’s old position with the Cowboys.

    It's time for Tyler Boyd to shine for Bengals
    The Cincinnati Bengals drafted wide receiver Tyler Boyd in the second-round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Boyd had a tremendous rookie season in Cincinnati hauling in 54 passes for 603 yards and a touchdown. With star wide receiver A.J. Green hurt, Boyd was given more opportunities in the offense and took full advantage of it.

    Heads up; Bengals eye NFL edicts
    While the Bengals continued to implement their off-season changes during this week’s voluntary practices, the NFL owners were giving the teams some significant involuntary changes to the playbook with the passage of two major items this week in Atlanta. As they gathered for the first of three weeks of voluntary practices leading into next month’s mandatory minicamp, the Bengals were unclear of the impact of one rule change and one point of emphasis.

    Darius Phillips already making big plays for Bengals in OTAs
    Going into Cincinnati Bengals OTAs, fans knew to watch for rookie cornerback Darius Phillips on returns thanks to his skill there. Given the wealth of talent on the depth chart at his position though, it seemed like we might have to wait a while before he started making big plays on defense.

    Cedric Ogbuehi earns clean slate with Bengals
    The Cincinnati Bengals have taken the field at OTA workouts this week and new offensive line coach Frank Pollack has elected to give everyone on the line a clean slate this year. Everyone will have to opportunity to start over and compete for starting roles this offseason, including tackle Cedric Ogbuehi. Cincinnati denied picking up Ogbuehi’s fifth-year option which means if he doesn’t impress this season, he will likely become a free agent next offseason.

    Why Vegas ties Bengals for longest shot to win Super Bowl
    The oddsmakers in Las Vegas don’t give the Bengals much of a chance to win the Super Bowl in 2018. Well, specifically, they give them about a 100-1 shot. According to Bovada, the 100-1 shot is tied with five other teams for longest odds in the NFL. Cincinnati is joined by the New York Jets, Chicago, Buffalo, Cleveland and Miami.



    Bengals’ latest ‘NASCAR’ package should give NFL fits in 2018
    The Cincinnati Bengals have assembled one of the NFL’s nastiest pass-rushing units and have placed new defensive coordinator Teryl Austin in charge of running it. Led by Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap, opposing offenses are going to have some problems in normal situations, as usual. But in passing scenarios, Austin’s “NASCAR” package looks like it could be one of the NFL’s best.

    Bengals receiver John Ross opens up about his struggles last season
    Last winter, I spent some time with Bengals wide receiver John Ross III in his massive-yet-barren suburban mansion for a Cincinnati Magazine feature story. Selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Ross was in the midst of a tough rookie season. He struggled to see the field, first due to injuries, then due to in-game mistakes. Fans in Cincinnati oscillated between calling him a bust and questioning why the team wasn’t giving him more snaps. He was trying to stay positive at the time, hopeful that things would turn around for him, but it wasn’t hard to see how heavily it was weighing on him.

    No reason to whisper about the Bengals Oline being soft the last 2 seasons. Who couldn't see it? Ogbuehi is a passive player and the rest of the line was getting beat too often to even think about imposing it's will. And for about a decade Alexander spent too much time coaching lineman to catch and redirect or throw blocks designed to control lateral movement at the LOS. Pollack coaches his blockers to fire out, blast lanes, whip ass. They've yet to prove they're any better but I have no problem believing they won't play soft. Better yet, the addition of Cordy Glenn gives them a solid left side to build around.

    Happy to see Darrius Phillips is flashing already. If Dre Kirkpatrick can get back on track the Bengals might have the best CB depth in the entire NFL. 5 deep, at least.

    Bengals handing out clean slates like candy.

    Not sure if I mentioned it, but Ogbuehi is getting some work at guard this week.
