We just gave a BJ to Cincinnati for a center

Started 19 of 42 games past 3 years.  Has given up 19 penalties, holding and false start over that time.  First round pick that's been dealing with injuries.

Not sexy, but it's a step toward admitting DJ is gonna get killed this year if something isn't done

There was a comment made last night that Hill was the only healthy starter not out of the field last night, I assume this is why.

Good move Price has starting experience across the interior of the line. 

Basically a rotation IDL for a starting guard potentially.

I'm sort of confused by what the Bengals are doing. Their OL is worse than the Giants, Price is one of like four Bengals OL that are in the conversation for being maybe serviceable. So he's getting beaten out at center --- he isn't better than the Bengals trash guards? 

Whatever. That team is stupid.

He has a PFF rating of 55, 41, and 50 over the last three years, and he was relegated to being a backup in fucking Cincinnati LOL.

Fire DG.

the general thinking with Price is circumstances have conspired against him a bit. 

still.... to not be able to consistently crack the line up in Cincinnati, a line which started Bobby Hart for years.... wtf....

"DG NEEDS TO ADDRESS THE OLINE"

*Trades for Price*

"No not that"

This is a Cincinnati line that nearly got Joe Burrow killed, and even on that line, Price was a backup.

The off-season follies of Dave Gettleman and this offensive line continues.

We jettison our best OL in Zeitler, retain Nate Solder on the logic that he's a quality backup, but Peart is so bad that now Solder is a starter, we signed Zach Fulton (a garbage backup) who retired, we signed the Jets practice squad lineman in Harrison, Kenny Wiggins...all five of the above are garbage...
Meanwhile our LT Thomas who was a top 5 pick looks awful thus far.

It's a joke. Is Gettleman trying to get fired?

Trading for backups on a team rife with backups isn't addressing the OL.

I mean... you're right. The time to address the OL was free agency. When we took a pass, we should have at least drafted a promising rookie. It was criminally stupid not to.

However, I'll take "swing for the fences with a former first rounder" at this point in the season over, "let's roll with Kenny Wiggins."

The fact that we're scraping bottom of the barrel OL off bad teams with bad OLs less than two weeks before the season starts is a joke. Gettleman is a joke.

equally poor, lol.

one thing to know, he was the last first round draft pick by CIncinnati's prior regime. He didn't fit the mold for the new coaching staff, which by the way, is thus far the league's shit standard. That's *partly* why he hasn't been on the field. And they've been so inept, if anybody would misevaluate players for stupid reasons, its Zac Taylor's team.

Hill for Bill......Im not sure if this really makes us or Cincy any better or worse. Whats his play in Pass Protection vs Run blocking? Any idea?

The difference is BJ Hill actually can be used in a defensive rotation, and has starting potential (pff rating of 73), versus Billy Price who is a bottom of the barrel OL who, after being ranked the 74th out of 75 interior OL in 2019, couldn't even make the starting lineup on an atrocious Bengals OL who nearly got Joe Burrow killed in 2020.

Here are Gettleman's OL moves this off-season:

Zach Fulton (retired)

John Harrison (formerly the Jets practice squad lineman)

Ted Larsen (34 year old career) backup)

Kenny Wiggins (33 year old career backup)

Billy Price

Retain Nate Solder, now the starting RT.

Cut your best OL in Zeitler, who signs elsewhere for $4M.

The jokes write themselves.

don't forget Looney! ---  regardless, I'm trying to be optimistic, but it's getting real fucking difficult.
