    Bengals just signed Burfict to a 3 year $38 mill extension last season.

    Well see if it's legit. I don't see it gaining steam like I thought it would.

    If you ever want to win, you have to rid yourself of those you cannot win with or those who do not promote that culture.

    Getting rid of your best player on defense is not the way to get better. Glad to see this report was false.

    He is not the reason they haven't won. Even in that playoff game. If it wasn't for him they wouldn't have even been in position to win. He was the mvp of that game until Jeremy Hill did the only thing that could cost them the game. The team doesn't get better moving on from him. Especially since most consider the Bengals linebackers as needing more depth. It then creates another position of big need.

    So there's still hope we can get him in an intra-division trade?

    Not saying he has been the cause of any losses or wins, he is a great player... but when you have nuckleheads leading your teams you are not going to win when it really counts. Same reason I wouldn’t want OBJ leading my team. Players like that always have a value cap, regardless of skill sets.
