    Off topic my friend but it's just a matter of time before the new Naming Rights Police start censuring this MB and auto correct your screen name to Acrisure Modified Whole Life. What may be even stranger is that a new 11,000 seat indoor sports and entertainment arena in Palm Springs CA will be mirroring the Steelers in name to be known as "Acrisure Arena". More bizarre - Ice Hockey in Palm Springs CA???? Someone is pulling my arbitrage! :shrug:

    1- Burrow made one of the worse teams in the league a play away from winning it all
    2- We can trade any of our QB's and get a valuable pick back
    3- How short is your memory. Cincy ownership sucks and they already did it once with Carson Palmer. There is your rebuttal METALMAN
    4- That it worth trading a bunch of picks that MIGHT MAYBE turn out to be good players someday. For a young stud proven QB. Hell yea its worth it. There are no guarantees in the draft. We would never be irrelevant with a QB like Burrow and our GM and scouts proving capable in the past getting good players later in the draft. Plus free agents would want to come here
    5- Name 1 QB in the league younger then Mahomes who is better than Burrow. There isn't

    What's going to be your excuse if Burrow sh!ts the bed this year? I think you're getting multiple points of this conversation mixed up. Can Burrow be great? Possibly but that's no more of a guarantee than your assessment of draft picks. You keep bringing up Cincinnati's past blunders but they haven't had a quarterback with the potential of Burrow in a long time. Think of your own argument you are using here. Why would a team trade their can't miss future, your words, for ten draft picks where there are no guarantees? Why would a team be so stupid to trade a guarantee for 10 that aren't? Take off the Burrow colored glasses and look at this logically from both sides.

    Because the Bungals have the cheapest owners in the NFL. Thats what cheap owners do. Look no farther then our own Pirates run by Bottom Line Bob.

    I hope you are right and hope Burrow sucks and hope Mason leads us to the division title. But thats a lot of hopes

    Bad analogy. For years, the Padres had the same reputation of being cheap. Then, they spend a gazillion dollars on Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis and others and are 12 games back of my Dodgers! Even Bengals ownership is smart enough not to get rid of the guy that got you to the SB.

    Okay, maybe with some Rufilin you could have talked me into your crazy ass trade idea but Mason leading us to a division title? This is just too much.

    Sorry METALMAN but Mason will win the job and give us our best shot. Trubs doesn't know the offense and there is a good reason why Chicago dumped him. Pickett needs a year to sit and learn

    Mike Brown is currently taking bids on naming rights for PBS and he specifically said that it would be for extra revenue to ensure they keep Joe Burrow, Jamar Chase and Tyler Boyd, among others. He mentioned those three players specifically yesterday so your hope for Burrow heading to Acrinotsosureitsagoodname Stadium is very much a waste of your breath. Mike Brown mentioned his father, whom the stadium is named after, as if alive would be on board with selling the naming rights if it meant keeping his best players. If you know anything about Mike Brown. He's as stubborn as they come so to say that he is definitely listening to other people for a change.

    I agree - 3 FPs - for using generic instead of genetic or now as corrected, hereditary. :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

    Trading for Burrow? Mason winning the starting QB job?

    Only one more question: is there a full moon tonight?

    Contrasting thoughts on this is why this will be a year where watching the preseason games will be fun rather than bulk filler

    You are a year early with the trade talk.

    Next year when Burrows is holding out for a 5 year $300 million contract, Cincinatti may be looking to move him.
