    No I don’t understand why they did what they did. Do you think those teams draft a WR at 5 or Sewell? Pittsburgh drafting a RB in the first round also is questionable. Their running game issues were not due to a RB issue. But I’m happy they did!

    Lol. Bengals reaching for a guy they could have got in the 3rd (or possibly the 4th). It's the Bungle way. Poor Burrow. Maybe he should pull a Rodgers and demand a trade. We could have had Sewell...

    Understand why they did what they did, but still disagree with it 100%. Going into last season everyone was concerned about Burrow getting hurt because of the offensive line. Three games in, everyone was thinking he wouldn't last the entire season. Half way through the season everyone was hoping the Bengals would get lucky and Burrow would escape without and injury.

    It would be different if Joe Burrow wasn't a Franchise quarterback. But he is. Period. So that's why I disagree with not taking an OL with your first round pick. It's about protecting your franchise quarterback.

    Think the Bengals are going to draft the entire 2020 LSU championship team.

    So they ended up drafting 7 defensive & offensive lineman. Hopefully they got some good ones.

    Man, it's hard being a Bengals fan. Hope Chase doesn't drop his credentials to get into the stadium.

    17 games this year. I say 7-10. Mike Brown will then say, "We're improving!!"

    Public reps!

    I think the Bengals will be 7-10 or 8-9, with an outside shot at 9-8 if they catch a break or two.
