Yeah, Jordan threw the player into Burrow’s leg. Line had collapsed again on the play and Burrow had no space.

Yep, just horrible, I knew it would happen at some point.

I didn’t expect it. I thought maybe a concussion or something or broken ribs. ACL is the absolute worst. Let’s hope he comes back. How bad is the prospect of watching the bengals without Burrow now? I almost turned the game off straight away. I reckon I could be more productive than Finley. How is he our backup? I just don’t get the thinking there. You don’t expect great production, but they need to be able to pass the ball.

That Oline can’t consistently stay in front of their man and is often moving them sideways towards the QB, it really was only a matter of time before the pocket collapsed in a way that would have defensive linemen falling towards Burrow’s legs.

It makes supporting the Tigers feel like a relief.

Bulldogs offering 800k a year for Burton? How many games has he played? Burton’s play was good, but he was playing behind an excellent pack in an ideal situation. I wouldn’t offer that, I don’t even know if I’d offer much more than half of that.

Zac Taylor has confidence in this offensive line, he selected Ryan Finlay last year and stuck with him as backup this year when he could have got a veteran in. Given he has chosen this offensive setup, let’s see him win in this situation, because he couldn’t do it with the one player who made Taylor look good. And Taylor couldn’t even protect him long enough to get us through the season looking at least hopeful of promise to come. That is just atrocious. Burrow was absolutely quality and it took us 10 games. Good job Bengals.

Did you see the tackle that did it?

You can watch the end of our hopes here:

No replay, but you just rewind to watch the horror.

Marshall still has value, he’s a great attacking player and better than most halves in the game at creating chances. He’s slowed down and can be a liability defensively, but a club will definitely pick him up this season if he doesn’t retire. Also, everyone’s carrying on like he expected a big contract and heaps of interest, but from everything he’s said I think he knows he’s at the end of his career and won’t command big dollars and is just looking for an opportunity. My sense of it is that he isn’t even necessarily looking to start but is happy just being a squad player. So all this talk about he should retire because no one rates him as highly as he does misses the mark a bit. I think he’d just like to leave the game a little better than the end of this year and I certainly hope he gets a chance. The only teams I don’t want to see him at are Parra and Penrith, couldn’t support him there.

Why are we ripping in to him when he’s not even on our team anymore?

I just don’t get the lack of respect for him. Sure, you may think he’s done but many of you seem to be relishing his situation when he’s one of the few players who absolutely loves playing for us and wanted to go again.

@jag said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

Joe 0 will fit in well another poor defender. No thanks fancy picking him up from the worst defensive team in years.
Manly fans cannot wait to get rid of the injury prone slow Sironen who they feel is stifling their attack. I don’t want these guys at the tigers. There is outstanding talent on the market for 2022. We need to be patient and buy quality not cast offs from other clubs which they don’t want. If they were any good the clubs wouldn’t be releasing them.

Don’t know what every manly fan thinks, but my mate is a massive eagles fan and always talks up how good Siro has been for them.

I like all the signings so far and the potential of Joe O, but we should be realistic: Laurie is a young player none of us have seen, Tamou is 33 and was unwanted by his club and obviously didn’t attract much interest from elsewhere, Joe O was bad last year, Roberts was almost unplayable and our singings from last year (Joey and AD) have yet to prove themselves as being difference makers, and in Joey’s case perhaps not even first grade quality. So I think we’re buying well given what is available and I like that the contracts seem really good for us, but this is putting together scraps from other teams and I think it’s better for our collective mental wellbeing if we don’t start booking GF tickets. Again, recruitment has been good, much better approach than the madness of the Cleary year, but we’re buying potential and hope not top flight talent.

I’m really excited about the signing. I expect nothing from next year, but he is fast and talented. Big downside now is that neither of our centres can defend now and both love brain explosions. But that will just add excitement to another dud season.
