That's dumb.

Really. Why expose your future QB to any more injury chance than the obvious reason of tonight's game?  If they can't figure things out from that they don't deserve him.

Haha it's the Bengals. 

If the Bengals are giving an indication that they might not draft him if he doesn't go, then he absolutely should not go. 

I wouldn't blame him for pulling an Eli/Elway here. Only problem there is Washington picks number 2 this year, lol. 

They have good weapons, sure, but the organization has been bad for ages and shows no signs of changing.

Honestly. You'd need the freaking Senior Bowl to help you make up your mind? 

If they were honest they'd just say out loud they're simply getting the jump on marketing their new franchise QB. 

If you need him there to scout him, just contract the team already.

LSU redshirt senior QB Joe Burrow completed 31-of-49 passes for 463 passes for five touchdowns while rushing 14 times for 58 times and a touchdown in Monday's 42-25 win over Clemson in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T.

60 passing touchdowns. 60 passing touchdowns! After a five-touchdown passing performance in the national title game, Burrow (6'4/216) now owns the record for most passing touchdowns in a single season in NCAA history. Of course, the extra game helps, but he should also be credited for getting his team there in the first place. Burrow had his excellent performance while battling through an apparent rib injury that he suffered right out of the half. With a title in hand, there is a good case that Burrow just wrapped up the best single season any college QB has ever had. There is no doubt that this man will be the top pick in the NFL Draft.

Eh, normally yes but Wash signed Rivera - I'd count on him for respectability. Cincinnati is a mess tho.

I would expect him to do whatever minimizes his chances to play for the Bungles.

I can  think of several teams I dislike more than the Bengals.

Solid QB class coming in next year.  I have no idea who will be the best QB long term.

Did anyone actually read the article? (not just the headline?)

 

Bengals are coaching at the Senior Bowl and, according to Nagy,

Quote

"They just want to get Joe here and spend the week with him to get to know him,” Nagy said, adding that the Bengals also want Burrow to get a feel for them and their organization.

 

Says nothing about them wanting him to actually play. They want to talk with him. The article even went on to suggest Burrow could attend the Senior Bowl and opt not to play, which seems it's what CIN wants. They want to get a free interview in...

If you only read the comments here you would think CIN doesn't know if they will draft Burrow, or if he's any good, and want to see him play.

It seems pretty reasonable that they would want to spend as much time as possible, especially when it's "free," when they are planning on making him 1.1

The senior bowl is always about the game preparation process and never about the game. 

Unless you're a dumbbutt like Gettleman

That would be a #### move imo.  So he'd take a slot from a guy that likely needs the exposure way more than he does just so he can talk to the Bengals brass?

Bengals trying to avoid the cost of a hotel room for Burrow. In Alabama.

This is apparently not uncommon.

If I were the Bengals I'd want as much exposure to the guy as I could get. The NFL limits the players a team can formally visit with. This wouldnt count. 

I wouldnt care about another guy who wants exposure in a meaningless game and now can't go, if I were the Bengals. They arent interested in that guy; they are interested in Burrow

It's only a meaningless game to Burrow and a handful of other guys.

ETA, I don't disagree with you about the Bengals POV but it's still not a cool move.

no way on earth he goes to the senior bowl. He should get a power house agent.

Like Dr. Dan implies, he might go there for an interview, but I agree there's no way he plays.  I wouldn't leave the house until after the draft.

I don't see it as an egregious move, but I can see how it snubs a guy out. At the end of the day I think thay guy will get his shot regardless during the predraft process, and Burrow may not even take up a roster spot... I have no idea how it all works.

What, hanging around him they're gong to find he dangles his participles and decide he's not the guy?

That staff should focus their efforts on who of the 57 other guys they have access to that they may draft in rounds 2-7 instead of splitting their time with a guy who's not going to play in the event in some sort of latter day cotillion.

So because everyone else calls him 1.1 the Bengals should anoint him 1.1? I bet the teams that drafted Sam Bradford, Jamarcus Russell, Ryan Leaf (1.2), etc. would have loved more time to see if maybe theyd have picked up on any red flags. 

 

1.1 might be a no brainer pick on the surface, but I imagine the Bengals don't want to get it wrong, no?

I hate you

ETA: lol, actually I’m being harsh for shtick. One question though: did you just get a bowl of it or was it on something like noodles or on a hot dog? It really is just a meat sauce. Chili is a marketing misnomer from the Macedonian/Greek immigrants back when.

I dunno, the way he said it. Something along the lines of "I'm not a student athlete anymore". Kind of saying " well I can't get in trouble any more so I may as well say it even tho my buddies and school can"

got my eye on him with my early 2nd rounders in 2020 dyno rookies drafts with 1QB requirements

 

Burrow will go in Round 1 of many leagues, even 1QB type.

He has Mahomes-like potential.
