    Re: Deshaun Watson

    Number of people accusing him of some kind of sexual misconduct now stands at nine.

    I'll be honest, I forgot about this thread. :boggled:

    News on the Bengals' front: A.J. Green is now a Cardinal. With Watt, they've now got a solid JJ and AJ (assuming he can stay healthy). I wish Green the best. He was a beast for the Bengals, being a perennial Pro Bowler from the get-go his rookie season. It's just unfortunate he became injury prone. Oh, and the fact Cincy couldn't win a playoff game with him. :grumpy: Sucks to see such a quiet, humble baller leave, but it's what is best for the team. Plus, let's face it, he'll have a much better chance of winning a ring in Arizona than Cincy unless the Bengals seriously upgrade their line to protect Burrow.

    Speaking of which, the Bengals did FINALLY make a move and sign an offensive tackle in Riley Reiff today. So that's one piece of the puzzle. Also 8 time Pro Bowler Geno Atkins was released saving the Bengals some cap space. He was immediately replaced by the incoming Larry Ogunjobi from the Browns. Finally, backup QB Ryan Finley was sent to John's Texans. Considering the news surrounding Watson, they may need him.

    16 as of today.

    I honestly don't know what to think. I see Deshaun and I don't see an absolute madman or lunatic like AB in his destructive "prime". Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Goldilocks is a lock at No.1 for the Jags, according to Urban Meyer himself:

    Also, Lawrece is not attending the draft, which will be held in Cleveland this year. Now, please, for the love of God, don't turn him into Blaine Gabbert 2.0 Jaguars. PLEASE.

    I absolutely didn't see that one coming.

    On paper it sounds and looks good. But in reality I see it going on two different ways: An exciting week full of games with playoff implications or a glorified preseason week.

    My guess is that it will be the 2nd one.

    What's going to be more this season? Watson's lawsuits, or the number of games this season?

    Close one....

    Speaking about that... now there are 21 lawsuits filed against him. Dos. Uno. TWENTY. ONE. :eek:

    https://www.nfl.com/news/lawsuits-a...-at-21-qb-s-lawyer-releases-statements-of-sup

    He might get his wish granted after all: He might not be playing for the Texans ever again. But the bad news? Maybe he is done in the NFL (???)

    Can you imagine if HE was on the cover of Madden last year? Ooh boy, it'd make me a believer in that curse.

    Good news: Sam Darnold is finally free from the Jets. Sad News: Now it's guaranteed that Zach Wilson is going to be the next great prospect to be ruined by them.

    I'm already pressing F for Wilson :/

    Just need to look at how well Ryan Tannehill has played since escaping from Adam Gase. Hoping that Darnold can replicate this. Really like this deal for the Panthers.

    Giovani Bernard was released by the Bengals today. Sad to see him go. :( He was a solid player and great overall guy.

    Despite he is not an elite back, he stayed with the same team for a very long amount of time. That is extremely rare for a RB these days.

    Hope he gets a new team soon.

    He spent one year as the main back before becoming the "change of pace" guy. That, and he was excellent at taking short passes and taking them for far longer than what should be possible. I believe I heard today that he holds the Bengals franchise record for catches by a running back. I hope he gets a chance for a ring somewhere. Because as you said, he was with the team for quite a while and was a fan favorite.

    I also saw one interesting tidbit about the current roster. There are only 3 guys who participated in their last playoff game that are still on the team. Those players are Kevin Huber, Clark Harris and C.J. Uzomah. Yep, that would be the punter, long snapper and back up tight end. :lol:

    Yeah, I actually liked Alex Smith. I know him more, though, for his time in college. He helped carry the University of Utah when Utah was in the Mountain West (now in Pac-12). I still recall Utah running over the U. of Pittsburgh in the 2004 Fiesta Bowl. So again- all the best of Alex Smith in his retirement.
