  1. There is absolutely no way Mason Rudolph is better than Jameis Winston. I will admit i might have more faith in him than others and i might admit I am wrong on some of my thoughts due to the above but I cant agree with this. Rudolph is AWFUL
  2. I agree with alot of this. Get him under 20 (i said 17ish) I would draft Young but also always listen to offers. One good draft trade can really set up a franchise. Ride Winston's upside and see where it takes you.
  3. I apologize. He played 1 'relevant' year in college. He wasnt getting drafted prior to this year. My statement was incorrect. I meant only one year put him on the map. I should have stated it better
  4. Its bad but it was an outlier. His other years arent great td to int ratio.....but not as bad as last. Still, high upside imo
  5. He played 1 year out of 4 in college. Coming i to this year he wouldnt have been drafted. I think he can be a good QB in the NFL and I am not really saying I think Jameis is better (maybe i am) but I am saying Chase Young and Jameis makes them better than just Burrow by himself. Chase Young is a stud and by far the best player in this draft
  6. I think Burrow had a sensational year this year. One for the ages. I just dont like 1 year wonders. Wasnt a high recruit. Couldnt win the job at OSU and had his great year with phenomenial talent around him and a pro offensive coordinator. I dont see him succeeding at the next level. Jameis, however, gives you a QP ready to go AND allows you to draft Chase Young. Thats the biggest part of this.
  7. He is still a young man. His college and early 20's got him a bad rap like alot of kids. I am not even a big Jameis fan. I jist look at him as a great buy low in the NFL and how Cincy would come out ahead looking at my plan instead if drafting Burrow
  8. I think a change of scenary, good running game and balance offensive calling could help him become a very good qb. He is not a finished product, he has flashed good and bad......BUT i wouldnt give up on a kid with his upside who has been on 1 team with a very aggressive offensive minded coach. I feel very comfortable saying he has his best football dayd ahead of him.
  9. I see a high ceiling and a talented player who had alot of weight on his shoulders. Not alot of players have his numbers (the good ones and the bad ones) at his age. He went to the worst team in the league 5 years ago and has 6 wins (after a 2 win season), a 9 win season and a 7 win season. His 2 down seasons were injury riddled and bad offseasons for him. He is 26 and you have to give up 0 compensation to get him. Former #1 high school player, former College National Champion, Former #1 pick, former league leader in passing yards. Thats alot to accomplish by 25 years old. His ints were bad last year but prior to last season, they werent ridiculously high. I believe the arm talent, athleticism, LEADERSHIP (not a misprint), COMPETITIVE is all there.
  10. Arians runs a very high passing volume offense. Allowing Jameis to learn another system, with a running game to rely on, and I see Jameis succeeding. I will keep stressing he isnt the type of prospect that comes along very often that you cam get on the cheap and dont have to trade tons of picks/players for. Chase and him make the Bengals relevant again. Not sold on Burrow at all. Jameis to the Bengals and drafting Young is the way to go!
  11. Remember Jameis's age, only 26 (not 25 like previously stated). Alot of qbs take a few years to adjust to the speed of the NFL. Give Jameis a good running game and a less aggressive coach (Ariens might bot have been great for him) and i definetly see jim improving. The big thing people are forgetting and i keep stressing is I am not saying this is a Jameis vs Burrow thing............ The Bengals do this so they can draft Chase Young. Chase Young plus Jameis makes the Bengals more competitive this year and the following.
  12. Just stop! Minshew is more of a winner than Jameis? Jameis won a college football title. Jameis improved the 2-14 Bucs to 6-10 in year 1 and 9-7 in year 2. True he had an injured and bad off field years issues in years 3 and 4 but year 5 led the league in passing yards, threw 30 tds and had a 7-9 record (i know he had 30 ints also). There is no comparison between his talent and Gardner Minshew. Look, I am looking to bring Jameis in on a 15-17 million dollar deal for 3 years (with bonus options). I would not break the bank for him. If I am Cincinnati, i try to get a 2 for 1 deal by getting Winston and Young this year. Jameis can take it and start and have a chance to get paid again at 28 years old or he can get pushed into the backup role and see how that works out. Cincy needs to think outside the box. If they take Burrow, they will be picking in the top 5 again for the next 5 years. With Jameis and Young, their future is much brighter.
  13. The big thing everyone is forgetting about here is you are ALSO GETTING CHASE YOUNG! I am not saying Winston is great. I think is ready to help a team win now, more than Burrow AND DRAFT CHASE YOUNG
  14. I watched Cincy play a lot last year. They were good early on with Dalton and AWFUL when they switched to Finley. The last few games, once Dalton was back at QB, the oline looked really good, the running game was very good and the wr's are far above avg (especially with a healthy Green). Like I mentioned before, Green-Boyd-Ross and Mixon can all day compete IMO, with Evans-Godwin and Ronald Jones. Make the smart move Cincy
  15. I agree. You could get a lot for the #1...….but I think Young is the best player in the draft
