    Rivers look real good

    I thought Keith Rivers looked really good last night. was around the ball on every play it looked like. had a nice TFL, helped in the run game, and looked very quick and athletic.

    he could end up being a starter or a depth player thats used a lot

    Very doubtful that you could get a player like Rivers, a LBer working with the ones, in the fifth round. It was hard for this move to bust, which made the poor response it received confusing, to say the least.

    I can't speak for everyone, but from my perspective the concern was his injury history and ability to stay healthy. We know he was a top 10 pick and had the potential that dictated that draft slot. Here's to hoping his health stays with him so we can reap the benefits of a player the Bengals just quit on. A practice our organization does not engage in, sometimes to the point of our detriment.


    I hate philthy. The teams, their fans, the city. I don't really mind the cowgurls, they're so dysfunctional I almost pity them. And the foreskins are just an afterthought.

    i dunno if his injury history is accurate tho. i know the reason he and the bengals parted ways was due to a disagreement about a forearm injury that the bengals IR'd him over (Rivers didnt think that was right) or something like that. He had a pretty stellar rookie season until he missed time, and he has been hurt but I dunno if it was a fluke or what...all I know is he looks damn athletic.

    The first injury in the NFL was his broken jaw courtesy of Hines Ward, as far as I know. The IR incident was a wrist, if I am remembering correctly. Yeah, I have nothing but hope that he just rockets into the spotlight and kicks butt for us.

    yeah that was such a bs hit by ward...keep the head on a swivel i know but the play wasnt really even near Rivers and Ward went head hunting on a rookie no less...that was such a ****ty thing by ward...but yeah that was a fluke type injury, and the forearm injury, well I still dont know the extent of it and who was right or wrong between him and the begals
