  1. “One takeaway from the Combine: There isn’t a quarterback for the Bengals that’s worthy of the No. 4 overall pick.” –

    Which means the Bengals will take a quarterback with the No. 4 overall pick.

  2. I think how Finley went down last year was very similar to when Sterling Sharpe went down in ’94. not in severity of the injury but the effect that it had on the QB position. Until that point, Sterling was Favre’s “security blanket”. After Sterling got hurt, Favre had to open up his throwing options and was able to make average WRs look good(Bill Shroeder, I’m looking at you). Although I don’t think Aaron ever got as locked in, as Favre did, with Finley – he’s throwing options grew through out the year.

    Finley will fit back in fine and I’m looking forward to next years passing game. Now get a deal done NFL!
