And this is what's wrong with the Bengals

Page 3 of We signed Lefell for \\$5 mill a year. I wanted them to resign him, but not for that much. Brandon Marshall just signed for \\$6 mill lefell is no Marshall... 68 comments | 1870 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Marshall wasnt going to Cincy for anywhere near $6m. He said he was offered more money by other teams. The Giants offered him the least but he wanted to play there because he felt like they had good ownership, a solid qb and good defense.

    Decker got hurt and the QB play was awful. I dont expect 2015 numbers but i think he will do fine this year.

    He is a GREAT pickup for the Giants. He is a BIG WR who can play inside or outside, basically a TE with WR skills and speed. But on the bright side, the Bengals signed a sloth when it comes to speed, I mean he did run a 4.54-4.64 at the combine back in 2010. He had to get faster in the last 7 years right? lol

    I'll throw this in here since it's about the Bengals.

    Rumor going around that the Jets are considering dealing Sheldon Richardson to the Bengals along with a pick for McCarron.

    Brandon Marshall ran a 4.52 at the combine.

    It will be tough seeing Katherine in a Jets cutoff T-shirt. I may not feel the same way about her anymore.

    I have to agree with HB. Lafell is not as good as Brandon Marshall.

    No thanks. The guy has a total of 6 sacks the last 2 years. Well I guess it depends what pick they are offering.

    I think the Jets sign Cutler and it won't happen.

    Isn't he a 3-4 guy? Sacks dont tell the whole story there.

    Then definitely no. Bengals have horrible luck trying to convert typical 3/4 guys to a 4/3 defense.

    I don't know if anyone is really saying he's as good. Just that the Bengals didn't overpay for him.
