Default Cincinnati Trail Blazers take Ahmad Brooks

Wow, you'd think after the past off season that maybe they wouldn't take this shot but the Bengals gave up a 3rd for Ahmad Brooks!

It looks like the Bengals are giving a lot of players a chance to get used to stripes on their uniforms before then end up at county.

Good pick for them and should fit right in. He is a good runstopper and a decent pass rusher. So why not take a chance. Should be interesting to see how he fits in.

Default Brooks to Cinci

Front page of NFL.com, Cinci used their 3rd rounder on him. I cant help but think it was a mistake not to take him w/ our 3rd. Tallent wise, we dont really have a chance of drafting anyone of his caliber in the 3rd next year, especially at the MLB possision. Thoughts...

The tumultuous offseason of the Cincinnati Bengals continued Thursday when two league sources and one source close to Odell Thurman confirmed that the starting middle linebacker has been suspended for four games for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.

The suspension for the first month of the campaign, which had been rumored for much of the offseason, might explain in part the Bengals' decision to select former University of Virginia linebacker Ahmad Brooks in Thursday afternoon's supplemental draft.

I wish we would have spent a 3rd on him...but we're still fine with Greenwood, Cowart, Ryans, and Orr. It's still always nice to add some young talented players though.

This was an issue with him at Georgia, and he did end up going to a military academy at one point. Lot of good it did him.

Quote:
In 2002, Odell was kicked off of the Georgia team for violating several
team rules and spent the rest of the season at the
Georgia Military Academy where he still had problems
adhering to team rules. Back with Georgia in 2004,
Thurman was again suspended...this time for the first three games of the season. But the talent outweighed
the risks for the Bengals, and Thurman was made a part of the Cincinnati franchise.

That's the link I meant to post in my last post, but inadvertently posted the original thread link instead........sorry 'bout that........my comment then would make much more sense to you.

You might check out this link that refers to a post I made in our "College" section (which contains a link) referring to this same occurence. THURMAN (look near the bottom)

Hilarious....they pick up one player with a drug problem after another play with a drug problem gets suspended. One step forward and two steps back as always for the Bengals.

Although the guy has his fair share of problems in the past, I do think he is steal for a 3rd round pick. I mean after all we did spend some 3rd round picks in Dave Ragone (who we gave up for free) and Vernand Morency who has been sitting on the sideline. Brooks IMO was definitely worth a 3rd based on his potential and could have given us some depth at the LB position.

Man, you got that right. The Bengals are becoming the "Home of 'Hoods".
This also establishs Bengals coach Marvin Lewis as one of the NFLs top windbags, given his recent pledges about taking character into consideration
when selecting players:
" In fact, three days before the draft, Lewis made a point of saying the Bengals would pay more attention to character issues this year."
http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn...c.php?p=750856
I dunno, maybe Lewis meant he was going to go out of his ways to take
knuckleheads with charcter issues, because he now has a collection of real
character duds on his team.

**********

There's certainly a question of if it's Lewis or Brown (owner) or both are responsible for this last choice:

BROWN MADE THE CALL ON BROOKS

A league source tells us that, although Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has plenty of influence over the composition of his team's roster, the decision to select Virginia linebacker Ahmad Brooks in the third round of the Supplemental Draft came from owner Mike Brown.

Our guess? Lewis is putting the word out that Brown made the decision in order to deflect a mounting storm of criticism regarding the team's addition on Marvin's watch of guys like Chris Henry and A.J. Nicholson and Odell Thurman and Frostee Rucker and Fahu Tahi.

Even if Brown did in fact make the decision, we wonder what if anything Marvin had to say as the boss was pondering the possibility. Did the coach say, "You know, this guy's college coach is putting out the word that the kid is a turd, and there are reports he failed multiple drug tests"? Or did Marvin merely keep his mouth shut and let nature take its course?

For the rest of the story

I heard Nate Newton is the new GM, and Michael Irvin is the new HC.
