Yams has played really well this year and I still have hope that Still will step up when he returns. This team really needs rest though...

I wonder if they might give Margus Hunt some snaps at UT ?

He isn't the greatest technician yet, but he has great strength, and his one strong move is his bull-rush. Next to Thompson, he might be the best option we have to step into Geno's huge boots and give us some interior push on 3rd down maybe.

Thoughts ?

They did that last game some. I didn't see anything good coming from it. If he added some weight maybe

I would really like to see the Bengals sign Richard Seymour. He's easily the best available free agent defensive tackle and plays with a mean streak. He wants to play for a contender but also wants a decent amount of cash. Money shouldn't be an issue, considering we have something like $8 million in cap space.

I suspect we'll sign someone relatively unknown just for depth however, which would be disappointing. There's no replacing Geno, and I understand it's time for the young guys like Thompson and Still to show up, but I'd sign the best available man for the job as long as I had the cash to do so... which we do.

I would be too. I'm not disappointed in missing out on Ratliff either. Too mnay off the field issues to bring in.

I'm 43, have had season tickets off and on since 1989. I've seen it all and felt it all.

So after sticking with this team through all of that, get to this point in the season with the best chance at making a deep playoff run, why am i not allowed to be extremely disappointed with all the key players going down, greatly diminishing those odds?

Yeah, I thought they'd at least kick the tyres on Ratliff, but I've just read he's dinged up and is unlikely to play this season.

We're all disappointed with losing Geno, Leon n' all, and we're all reacting differently to it.

As you know, being a lifelong Bengal fan is sometimes a heavy cross to bear.......

FWIW, were used to adversity, and I think we still have a decent shot at making the play-offs and beyond if we can somehow win the next two games. Is it going to be more difficult now, sure, but it's going to be fun watching.......

We HAVE to beat the Browns in two weeks. Beating the Ravens on the road would be great, but a loss isn't devastating. I think we only have 2 road games after this one, right? San Diego and Pitt, off the top of my head

We do indeed.

Just watched The Browns pretty convincingly beat the Ravens despite the close score. I think the Browns are on a bye, so they will come into PBS Sunday week fresh, coached up, dangerous and desperate to get to 500.

The Browns might just have the best most balanced team since they came back into the league, and they will know were banged up, and will have just come off another bruiser against the Ravens.

This might be the most important and significant Ohio derby game since Kosar v Esiason.

Bengals went the route I figured they'd go, signing a guy I've never heard of. I won't bash the move too much; I just would have greatly preferred Seymour and we have plenty of cap space. Seemed like a no-brainer. Oh well... hopefully Zimmer can make some magic with this guy as he has countless others.

Taylor was shaping up to be a potentially good NFL SLB before a foot injury sort of derailed his career. He suffered the injury during his junior year at Virginia Tech; he came back for his senior season but was never the same. I don't think we'll catch lightning in a bottle with him.

Worked pretty well with Wallace Gilberry. *Shrugs*
