Are the Bengals going into full rebuild mode?

Page 3 of With the players they have let go last year and this year, there does not seem to be a commitment to win now. Advertisement 0 0 0    ... 38 comments | 895 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Bengals will start signing the players on clearance this week.

    I forgot Hunt also.
    Peko, Whitworth & Zeitler were expendable because the Bengals already drafted their replacements in 2015 or 2016. Bengals signed Minter, who presumably will take Dansby's spot. Burkhead was a special teams captain & 3rd string RB.

    I've never heard of Roach; Wright only caught 13 passes last year for 106 yards so losing him isn't costly.

    Margus Hunt had some potential but moved on. Not a big loss, either.

    It seems there is more roster turnover than usual, but very few of the players would have been starting this upcoming season anyway.

    Bengals will be lucky to be better than 500 next year.

    What were they last year? Do you think keeping those players make them better than .500?

    Ignore him. He doesn't seem to get the Bengals and his high school football team he loves are one in the same. Most years have very good regular seasons, and beat a lot of bad to average teams. But then lose once it comes to playoff time and playing top teams.

    So I guess since he talks up his high school team so much, only to be disappointed. He needs to get some relief by putting down a team, that basically is similar to how the team he loves in high school does.

    Which I need to take my own advice and ignore too.
