Bengals Can’t Punt on Free Agency

    I wish the Bengals would try to improve the team via free agency but MB moves this team back 2 steps for every step forward they try to take. You’re completely right we need O line, and correct about Mathis I believe it is? The problem is that MB is too cheap to spend any money and he takes the gifts he receives (i.e. Dalton, Green, and a 1st round pick for Palmer) and he hordes them like a rat. He’ll go ahead and re-sign just the minimum to where he thinks they can compete and “elevate” to the next level I guess. Unfortunately the success of this years team will hurt us in the long run because to MB he thinks his system is working and will only exacerbate his style of ownership.

    Between Mathis and Anthony Collins, I am losing faith in Paul Alexander’s ability to remain unbiased and play the best players for the team’s success.

      Now that I read your OL breakdown, I see we are of like minds!

    I am hopeful that Boling can be a starter next season. When I watched him in the preseason, he didn’t look out of place. I’m hoping that the schemes and intensity of the regular season caught him off guard. But considering he’s been a 4-year starter (I believe) in college football’s toughest conference, he should have enough talent to ascend next season. Then, the team would only need one starter via free agency or the draft.
