Monday, March 3, 2008The Bengals are confusing
The NFL's free agency period started on March 1st at midnight. It is usually a huge mess of rumors and signings and people getting angry that their favorite team didn't do what they thought they should. But instead of the Bengals inciting their fans to anger this year...they decided to up the ante! This year, the Bengals decided to get their fan's hopes up (3 times so far)...and then crush their dreams (2 times so far)...then not say anything about what is happening, leaving everybody confused.
The Bengals had apparently agreed to trade a 3rd and 5th round pick to the Lions for Shaun Rodgers, an awesome, yet troubled DT.
(this is where the fan base got excited. I specifically remember blathering on about it to Mikah at Cici's Pizza. I believe my exact words were, "this is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me....(long pause)...(wonder why Mikah looks mad)...(realize why Mikah looks mad)...Except for my wedding day of course!!")
Anyway...fans got all excited, only to find out later that evening that the trade fell through. But not only did the trade fall through...but he signed with the Browns. FOR THE EXACT SAME DEAL. WHA?????????????????? I still don't know what the problem was. I am hearing rumors of $1 million signing bonuses and stuff like that. If that is the real case...then I despise Mike Brown more than normal.
So the Bengals moved on to plan B...Dwayne Robertson, DT from the Jets. We apparently had a deal set for him too. Just a 5th round pick. But it fell through again. I don't know why. Something about his big contract or something. Of course, he had that same contract when they started the trade negotiations.
Now there are rumors that we are going to sign Antwann Odom, a DE from the Titans. I guess that's a good signing. He is certainly better than any other DE we have. But that's not hard to do. As my mom always says, "I COULD PLAY BETTER THAN THOSE GUYS!!!!!!"
(by the way - I dispute this. While I agree that my mom probably has better and more diverse pass rushing skills than Justin Smith...I just don't think she has the same "non-stop motor" to keep it up all game)
Anyway...that is my update on The Bengals free agency. A whole lotta nothing.
