Apparently Fisher has an irregular heartbeat, and the upcoming surgery could completely cure him. News came out this morning, which I had missed. Makes you wonder if this condition was partially responsible for his poor play.

Another thought occurred to me today. The last Bengal to develop into a quality O-lineman was Kevin Zeitler, and he was a plug-n-play guard, per Mike Mayock. Whatever happened to the pipeline the produced the following players?

- Clint Boling, G (2011 4th rounder)

- Andre Smith, T (2009 1st rounder)

- Anthony Collins, T (2008 4th rounder)

- Kyle Cook, C (2007 street free agent)

- Andrew Whitworth, G-T (2006 2nd rounder)

- Stacey Andrews, T (2004 4th rounder)

- Eric Steinbach, G (2003 2nd rounder)

- Levi Jones, T (2002 1st rounder)

All were either solid starters or quality backups. It goes even further back but I limited the time frame to the current century.

Let us not forget about center Trevor Robinson who had a strong rookie year filling in for Kyle Cook in 2012. He was another street free agent. Injuries quickly ruined his career, but he helped save the Bungs that first season after Cook unexpectedly went down.

Zeitler also came along in 2012, drafted in the first round. After that we're talking about a parade of stiffs. Five years without any infusion of quality talent, and this is the team that let their two best offensive linemen go this past offseason.

The common denominator throughout this span is Coach Paul Alexander, and he has clearly lost his touch.

A couple of other respectable linemen I forgot to add:

- Evan Mathis, G (2009 free agent)

- Bobbie Williams, G (2004 free agent)

We'd gladly take a guard now who's as good as either one used to be, back when they were first signed by the Bengals.

The 24-20 loss to the Titans puts them at 3-6 and surely out of the hunt for good. They could have easily won that gamne with a halfway decent pass protection. Their rushing game improved, but there was no way to go but up, and they seemed to be using it as a change of pace with all of 14 carries during the game, including one by a Dalton scramble and two by WR Alex Erickson.

Paul Alexander plays his tribute to the Bengals 2017 football season. In case you forgot, that would be Frédéric Chopin's Piano Sonata No 2 in B flat minor, Funeral March.

Check out the "Renaissance Man" video from 2011 linked under the pic. Alexander says he learned to play for one reason: to help him coach better. How has that worked out?

And that has to be one of the biggest player mis-evaluations in the 50 years of Bengals existence. Ogbuehi was supposed to have "generational" talent, but it turns out he's a stiff. Where is the accountability for that?

Storm, glad you got to see a game live without contributing directly to MB's pocket.

Ogbuehi is Fat Freddie Childress

Ogbuehi is a bust for different reasons than Fat Freddie, but a huge bust either way.
It's like when the Bengals drafted that tight end with a smoking habit from San Jose State, and the whole league says "WTF?"
Or when the Bengals drafted Jerome Simpson who should have been a fifth rounder or lower.


The number of bizarre head scratchers coming from Cincy has to be higher than most teams...

You have guys like Will Clarke or Nick Vigil that were obvious reaches on draft day and then do nothing to convince us the Bengals know better.
