*** Official Indefinite Cincinnati Bengals Thread *** 0-0 Never Felt So Good Before! (1 Viewer)

Wonderful effort and game last night
Looks like Cinci will be back in the discussion of how far they can go in the PLayoffs
I realize Baltimore is 7-2, they've whooped a few teams now, still think Cinci is the team to beat in the North

Outside of the road game at Baltimore, think the Bengals will be favored in most of their games the rest of the way.
12-5 or even better not off the table yet.

Get well, Joey. To those other 31 teams, fight hard for that ring, you won't get one next year.
 
Situation is dire but let's see what Browning can do out there. Honestly looked better than I expected after he came in. Basically the big knock on him out of college was arm strength so that will be likely the biggest difficulty.

From the fantasy side Irwin looks to be rosterable if Tee remains out as there definitely is a connection between him and Jake - surely they have had a ton of practice time together.

Completely agree there, I thought Browning did perfectly fine. We're down, not out, but I'm done worrying about this season, for now.
 
Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in ...

Two weeks ago, after the awful loss to the Steelers, I truly thought I'd seen the last of Bengals games that I actually cared about this year.

We need to finiah 3-1 5o have a good shot. I'd say 4-0 and we should be in easily, don't know if that's an actual lock but seems realistically like a near lock. We won't win any tiebreakers unless we are tied with Indy and/or Buffalo, with no one else involved. Pretty much need to pass any team to be ahead, we'll be at the bottom of most blocks of tied teams in the end.
 
Alright, Santa, so you crapped all over my one Christmas wish. Can you at least give us a whole season start to finish with a healthy Burrow next year?

Santa...? *dial tone*
 
I don't think anyone believes Joe Burrow's job was in danger. IMO that is kind of ridiculous.
That was my attempt at humor. My previous thread title was "Joe Burrow Becomes the Highest Paid Backup QB in the NFL" after Browning caught fire. Then changed it after yesterday's game.
 
Adomitis and Browning tendered ERFA contracts as expected

Last year of ERFA for Adomitis - Browning has ANOTHER year after this one. And then a year or RFA.

They cannot negotiate with other teams - basically they can sign for under $1m for the season or not play. They can negotiate a longer term contract - but neither has leverage at all.

Fans around the league and even some of our own fans fancy Browning as a trade target but I cannot imagine any trade offer being remotely worth it. Some mid round pick does nothing - we would have to go out and get a new I,ackup QB for a higher salary at a time when we have a lot of big contract coming up. Teams aren't going to pony up serious draft capital (yes I mean a first rounder) for him since the resume is as thin as it is.

$915k for that slot is impossible value for what he brings. And that is for 2 more years. After that we would give him a first round tender which would still be a bargain. Getting more expensive at that slot for a worse QB? No thanks. Getting a tip top backup would be way too expensive.

Browning is stuck. Only way to get more $ sooner would be to do a long deal at a better rate (but still a rare that is low relative to his true value). Let other fanbases imagine him as a solution. Ain't happenin'

That makes sense, I was just thinking about how we could be able to get something for him. But you have to have a backup.
