I love the Mayfield pick for the Browns, and I wanted Bradley Chubb at 4, but I'm not going to complain about taking Ward. Corner was a huge need as well and we got a great one. 

TTUN fans are already texting me about Patterson like he didn't completely shit the bed against the only two decent defenses he played against last year then got hurt. He will make their disappointment more fun to watch.

Relax, everyone. It's easy to find haters on Twitter for ANYTHING in this day and age. 85% of the respondents in the "Do you approve?" poll on the Bengals' SBN website give the pick an A (50%) or a B (35%), meaning there's pretty widespread approval of the pick in their fandom.

DJ selectively choosing his Twitter examples is just him stirring the shit this a.m., as he loves (and lives) to do every Skully. But isn't that why it's such a great read every morning?

There is a reason many call it Cincinntucky.  I have always hated that city because many act like they aren’t Ohioans (especially when it comes to the Buckeyes).  I have to take my solace watching the Bearcats, Bengals, and Reds suck.

I have been telling everyone on here for years we don’t want the local NFL teams taking Buckeyes because they are bad franchises.  Unfortunately, some of you cling to them because of a marketing slogan.  I feel bad for Ward and Price which is odd because they both just got lucrative jobs.

Right? We should have booted Cincinnati into Kentucky during the war. Who do they have allegiance to exactly if they don't like Ohio State? The Bearcats? Really? That's like Clevelanders not liking OSU because of Case Western Reserve, only Case is the more highly regarded school next to Cincy.

These fans are just not very classy. Living in Cleveland, and being a die hard Cleveland and Columbus sports fan I always support my Home state sports teams when my local teams are not involved. I guess some fans from Cincinnati just don't love their home state.

We should have booted Cincinnati into Kentucky during the war.

The war? What war? The Civil War? The one that began only 85 years into our country’s history but ended 153 years ago this month? That war? 

I am reminded of when Carson Palmer complained about playing for the Bengals because he had to read and hear about Ohio State constantly. Haters gonna hate. Billy Price isn’t going to change that; however, I am amused that Baker Mayfield is now in Palmer’s shoes in that he’ll have to read and hear about Ohio State constantly.

I have never understood how Richmond and Washington DC are barely 100 miles apart and yet the Union did not capture the Confederate Capitol until the last month of the Civil War. It took troops commanded by Ohio’s Phillip Sheridan, who reported to Ohio’s Ulysses S. Grant, to break through and deal the Confederacy a final, last killing blow.

I guess I’m a rare Buckeye and Bengal fan. What these other Cincy fans don’t understand (not surprisingly) is that the O Line was absolutely putrid last year. Basically, with the 12th pick, Cincy got Cordy Glenn (from Buffalo) and Billy Price. Oh, and another thing, Price can play C or G. That type of versatility will give the Bengals some flexibility.  I’d say job well done, Mikey Brown.

HS
CincyBuck's picture

It’s not at all rare.  They’re everywhere.  

Most of the hate of the hate of the Price pick I’m seeing is the result of Kiper/McShay BS.  The consensus of the “experts” was Price was the worst of the 3 top Cs.  Ipso facto, it was a reach.  

They’re idiots.  Putting aside my OSU bias, I still think it’s a great pick.  It’d be great had we been able to get Price in the second (what many are saying).  I just think that’s plain false.

I don't wish ill upon the city itself, I actually enjoy going to Cincy when I can...

But the negative reaction to a guy like Price? I mean the lions took Ragnow just before and that guy was easily a third round grade... be happy with what you get cincinnati!

HS
CincyBuck's picture

I agree the (limited) negative reaction is a bit unfounded.  But...

I mean the lions took Ragnow just before and that guy was easily a third round grade...

That hasn't been the case for quite some time.  Everything I've seen in the last month or two had Ragnow going in the first round.  In fact, perhaps the most "in the know" person in Cincy said he believed the Bengals would take either Ragnow or Price -- and that they preferred Ragnow. 

That creates a perception that we didn't get the player we wanted, and that Price was a consolation prize of sorts.  There were also a few mocks after his injury that had him slipping to the second round, creating the perception that we could've waited and grabbed him in Rd. 2.  Both are aggressively false assumptions.  But, if I'm being honest, most NFL fans are kind of idiots, so the overreactions aren't surprising. 

HS
RunEddieRun1983's picture

Most key mocks I saw had Daniels and Price going before him and had guys like Hernandez and Williams as better rated interior OL... But it's all a matter of opinion at this point. When I evaluated Ragnow I put a third round grade on him based on better players being available ahead of him and his film. Not saying he can't be an impact player in the third, we all know that's not the case.

HS
CincyBuck's picture

Interesting -- only because everything I've seen from the media the last few weeks has painted Price as the unathletic version of the other two Cs.  (Full disclosure: I think the media is full of idiots who change what they say over and over, just to get attention; it's appalling that Kiper remains employed).

Can't say I've seen a bunch of Arkansas games, but I have seen plenty of OSU ones.  I'm not sure what else you could ask for in a C.  Good frame, athletic, strong as a bull, smart, high character, durable, winner, etc. 

I've read that Price sometimes "overextends" or doesn't use peerless form sometimes.  Okay...  that's probably because he can get away with it against crummy competition.  IMO, that's easily fixed in the NFL (assuming that even needs fixing).

Long story short, I'm happy with the pick.  Though I suspect I would've been happy with the other 2 Cs, too.

2.) B1G conspiracy to give Michigan a schedule that was clearly tougher than anybody else’s

3.) NCAA conspiracy to screw Michigan 

4.) Ohio State cheating

Hard to get into the mind of delusional people (as your question is really a subjective one).  I see lots of "we always get called for holding but Ohio State never does" kinda stuff.  There are still some over there that cry about the spot even though one of their PHD math students broke it down in an article and concluded it was a first down.  The thing about irrational beliefs is that actual facts don't really matter.  A long time ago I decided I wouldn't go on a rivals site, sign up and respond (which would inevitably be a troll).  But man, it is hard sometimes.

That is how I remember Cincinnati. What I see on 11W does not exist away from the internet from what I have seen. It is just as sure as Tigers fans in Toledo being Michigan traitors.

He won't be "Johnny Manziel 2.0" unless he has multiple substance abuse issues that the Browns aren't aware about. To be fair, that's a scenario that can't be ruled out.

Manziel is nowhere near as good as Mayfield. Night and day difference in passing.

Considering Cincinnati sports fans probably don't remember what success looks like (save for FC Cincinnati), I'm not surprised they are unhappy with Price, a Buckeye, being the first round pick for the Bengals. Despite that, you would think anyone that watched the Bengals last year would realize that their line was horrendous. They also just lost Bodine, who was their starting center.

But hey, who cares about facts when you're in Cincinnati - a city divided into Xavier, UC, and UK fans.

HS
CincyBuck's picture

Agreed.  The internet's a very large place.  One can always cherry-pick a few statements (or, heck, a few hundred/thousand), and, using some faulty logic (and ignoring other variables), reach the conclusion you want.  Everyone I've spoken to this morning is ecstatic about the pick.  I'd say people should check the glowing write-ups of the pick in the Enquirer, team site, etc., but even those aren't really great summaries of the city's consensus.

Here's an example: I have several friends who are Browns fans that were disappointed with the Ward pick.  Does it follow that Browns fans necessarily hate the Buckeyes?  No.  Candidly, I'd be disappointed with the pick, too, as I just don't think Ward is a top-5 pick (as much as I loved him at OSU).  Do I hate the Buckeyes?  No. 

Here's the truth: there are definitely some folks in Cincinnati who don't like OSU.  But, overall, in football, it's OSU first, Notre Dame a close second, a significant gap before UC (and, candidly, most UC fans also follow OSU), followed by a significant gap before a number of SEC/ACC teams.  That's not surprising because Cincinnati has actual college sports teams in town, which, shockingly, have students who like their respective school. 

HS
CincyBuck's picture

Also, I look forward to having this exact same debate in another month, as is tradition.  Someone will hurl an unnecessary dig at Cincinnati with little or no factual support.  I will respond with an objective assessment.  I will be told that I am wrong based on someone who talked to a guy in Cincy (or maybe Indianapolis/Lexington; which is pretty much the same thing if you've never left Northern Ohio) while driving through in the 90s one time -- legitimate sources and actual data be damned.  Then rinse and repeat.

Pickerington is now a Columbus suburb?  It has 20,000 people?

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

There are Pickeringtons all over country, sleepy little towns on the fringes of big cities that are attracting young families who are willing to invest in infrastructure and education, which attract more young families fleeing older communities that have peaked. It takes a few years for the kids to grow up and often times a second high school to accommodate the rapid growth, which creates a rivalry that further stimulates the community’s competitiveness. And not just in sports.

Waukee is a Des Moines suburb that had 5,100 people in 2000 and close to 20,000 today. Its high school is a burgeoning powerhouse and it recently passed a referendum to build a second high school. Johnston is another suburb following the same path: it had 8,500 people in 2000 and up to 21,000 today.

Seems to me that Baker at 1 was unnecessary, but if 4 would have been too late then so be it. I may be in of the few who thinks Saquon was taken too high also. He was mostly shackled in huge games, and I don't see how he could hold up in the NFL playing as many snaps as he did in State College. He won't be able to run/catch every down and still be a major return guy as well. Good luck Giants keeping him healthy. 

Billy Price, prove the Cincy haters wrong and be the man. 

As for geese, steer clear whenever possible.

You're definitely not alone on your Barkley take. I agree with it, and have had quite a few conversations with others who agree as well. And for the same reasons. He just wasn't great in big games. Additionally his highlight tape is full of long touchdown runs, but it seemed to me that he didn't do much in between those big runs. For example, he had a 35 yarder against the Buckeyes last year, and finished the game with 38 yards on 22 carries.

So it isn’t just me. That Buckeyes game Saquon was completely bottled up save for that run. Other big games he did little. Long td runs certainly help, but at that level you meed to bring it on all downs-no more playing Maryland or Illinois anymore.

Happy to have him but he can leave that brand in Columbus

Yeah, you wouldn't want to become winners. F that... continue to be mired in mediocrity. The most dangerous combination in life is to be arrogant and stupid. Both UC and the Bengals are arrogant and stupid. Just to be clear, Cinci, you're football losers. That's not me opining, that's just the fact of the matter. When a part of one of the five most storied, tradition-laden and winning programs in college football history wants to bring some of that magic with him to your shitty program, well, people who aren't arrogant and stupid would say, "Bring it, Billy Price... we need some of what OSU has." But, as I said and as their tweets prove, Cincinnati is ARROGANT AND STUPID.

His comments about being taken at 10 confirmed my suspicions about him. He's Jay Cutler 2.0. Talented passer, but a headcase that needs to be steered clear of.

I stayed up and watched Rosen play. I think he is big time gamer. Jt's best games against Michigan State in 2014 and last year with Penn State are how he played all the time. And I am with JT and not a hater.

I didn't like the attempted flag plant, either.

Actually....what we all didn't like.....was how he and his team basically whipped our team like bitches that night in September in the 2nd half.  The flag planting was just a middle finger wagging at us that we couldn't do anything about.

Great pick with Ward; wait and see about #1. 

Hope there's room on that jersey for 2 more names, although it seems to be missing some

My thoughts exactly M5. I was at the draft party @ Paul Brown last night and the place exploded when they called out Prices name. I was actually yelling the Price is right moments before they called his name. A lot of us Bengals fans were high fiving and yelling O-H and who-dey. He will be a fan favorite in Cincy for many many years to come.

I think most Bengals fans realize this was a great pick. For those that didn't like Billy saying he couldn't wait to bring the Buckeye brand of football to Cincy, I'd say it is a good thing. The Bengals have played a UC brand of football for too long. Let's have some winning tradition!

Interesting fact--the Bengals have drafted 29 Buckeyes in their history, more than from any other CFB team. Recent history though, I don't think is very Buckeye-centric. Marvin has been infatuated with SEC players. Case in point: Jeremy Hill over Carlos Hyde--how'd that word out? Not very well!

He will get to intercept Mayfield everyday in practice.  He should enjoy that.

Another pro-style, non-mobile QB in Ann Arbor?  Jake Rudock 2.0?  Yes, please.

Cooper's picture

Patterson is really mobile. Looking at his film, he actually seems to be a perfect fit for the Ohio State offense, not Michigan’s. I think he’ll end up as the best Michigan quarterback under Harbaugh, but that won’t guarantee any major victories.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

HS
D.J. Byrnes's picture

I need to see how the Michigan line plays first. If they can't run the ball the forecast on Patterson goes down. He's good, but he's not a Braxton Miller type that can tilt the entire offensive side of the ball.

Thanks for the update on his being mobile, I didn't realize.  I guess it was to do with the system there, but I had looked at his stats with Ole Miss and assumed he was a pro-style QB without a lot of mobility.

I've said it many times on here - the only teams with a pulse that She(sic) Patterson has played, he's thrown many interceptions and far less TD's. 

Against Cal, Bama, Auburn, LSU, he had 4 TDs and 8 INTs. 

That means he had 13 TDs and 1 INT against South Alabama, UT Martin, and Vandy.  Whooopadeedoooo!

EDIT: stats from 2017, before injury

I actually hope Patterson makes TTUN better. It makes beating them mean more. 

Not convinced Mayfield is the guy. Not sure Sam Darnold or Josh Allen are either. At least Josh Rosen showed some fire in his nostrils by being pissed he was the 4th QB drafted but I'm not even sold on him either. All 4 of those QBs could be busts and Lamar Jackson become the star. He was drafted by Ozzie Newsome afterall.

Oh, I definitely cherry picked the tweets but as you said, the anti-Buckeye sentiment, while a minority, is still a sizable one that can't be ignored. 

Besides, nobody wants to read 10,000 draft opinions from yokels to start their day. They will listen to about five, though.

It's incredible that the Buckeyes continue to be the pipeline for NFL teams, year after year.  how many do people project the Buckeyes would send to the NFL for next year's draft?  seems like the team consists of lots of underclassmen who may not declare early.
