Well, the latest rumors have Sam Adams talking to the Bengals this Monday, the only team that still has the cap-room to give him the kind of deal he's hoping for. This would be another huge addition to that top 10 Bengals defense. I don't want to put the cart before the horse here, but I can't help it, Mike Brown's stingyness is finally paying off in this new market. The team isn't in cap trouble, they can add guys, and their young guys are locked up (besides Spikes and Simmons, but the cut of Darnay Scott gives them the money to negotiate with the 2, who have made it clear they want to stay) this team is actually being praised for their cap management. What is the world coming to? If only they had a QB.
I'm going to continue to hang on to that thread of hope that Frerotte translates his high quality appearances the last couple of years into a starting role. All they really need is servicable QB play, the "doesn't hurt you" kinda guy. They've got talent at every other position on the feild. If that get that kind of play, they're probably a playoff team. If it doesn't...6-10, again.

I am Mr. Positivity! Sometimes.
Bengals, Playoffs, 2002. DON'T BELIEVE IT! *I* want to be the right one!
Oh, no doubt about that, but they're not going to be asking him to start. He'll be part of a 4 man DT rotation, which would allow him to stay more fresh and make more of an impact. He's still got years left, he's just too big to play every down.
Sam Adams was too big to play every down when he was drafted by the Seahawks about 7 years ago. NOw he's older and still big if not bigger. These guys drop off fast, look at his last years numbers for one.
However, given all of that, isn't there something to be said for the idea that if he has all this authority to wave things off and to make so many decisions, that he needed to alter the playcalling to adjust for the lack of time.
