John Ross Deserves a Coach who Actually Believes in Him

Take Brandon LaFell. Why would Cincinnati consider playing him over Ross? Let’s assume that he is far better than Ross and would lead to more wins. This, in the midst of a losing season, is an entirely bad thing. Winning these pointless games in a season that will have the same result by playing Lafell […] John Ross Deserves a Coach who Actually Believes in Him - Stripe Hype - Stripe Hype - A Cincinnati Bengals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Bengals OC Brian Callahan wants to unleash John Ross

The new Bengals offensive coordinator wants to help John Ross flourish outside of the red zone in 2019. You would think the guy that broke the NFL Combine record for fastest 40-yard dash would be a dangerous downfield threat. But that’s just not the way it turned out for John Ross. Despite running a record 4.22 second time, Ross was mostly just a red zone weapon in 2018. He caught seven touchdown passes, but only two of them came from outside the 20-yard line. So when Brian Callahan became the offensive coordinator for the 2019 season, he saw Ross as more than a red zone weapon. “His...

The case against trading John Ross

The case against trading John Ross

John Ross is still a valuable part of the Bengals’ offense, despite his low numbers. When the Bengals drafted John Ross with the ninth-pick in the 2017 draft, they were hoping for a vertical threat that could take the top off the defense, and cause enough commotion to leave A.J. Green in single coverage. Unfortunately, that has yet to be the case. Instead, the Bengals found a powerful weapon in Ross that is still valuable to the Bengals’ offense. They found a red zone target. It doesn’t seem intuitive that the fastest man in the NFL is most effective in the shortest part of the...

With the unanswered question about the future of veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson of the Tampa Bay Buccaneer could John Ross potentially replace him?

The case for trading John Ross

John Ross hasn’t developed into what the Bengals thought he should be. In Week 3 of the 2018 preseason, the Bengals’ defense had forced the Bills’ offense into a three-and-out to open the game. On the first offensive snap for the Bengals in the game, Andy Dalton unloaded a deep ball to John Ross. The receiver then made two defenders miss and ran into the end zone for a 57-yard touchdown. That was why the Bengals drafted the guy that broke the 40-yard dash record at the NFL combine. The Bengals needed a dynamic playmaker across from A.J. Green that could tear opposing defenses to...

Report: Bears inquired about trading for John Ross

The Bears are reported to be checking on the availability of speedy wide out John Ross. Yesterday, Draft Analyst’s Troy Pauline reported that the Cincinnati Bengals were shopping wide receiver John Ross, and they would field offers at the NFL Combine. Ross was a surprising first round draft pick in the 2017 NFL Draft going ninth overall to Cincinnati. He was a good player for the Washington Huskies in 2016 recording 81 receptions and 1,150 yards, but it was his blistering 4.22 forty yard dash at the combine that made scouts take notice. Ross missed most of his rookie year, but he...

Duke Tobin denies Bengals are shopping John Ross; teams have already inquired about trade

Tobin was emphatic in his denial of the Bengals looking to deal Ross. News broke Tuesday that the Bengals are reportedly shopping John Ross while teams are gathered in Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine. The news was fairly shocking as he is going into his third season after Cincinnati spent the ninth overall selection on him in the 2017 NFL Draft. As it turns out, it was fake news to the Bengals and director of player personnel Duke Tobin. Speaking at the combine on Wednesday, Tobin emphatically denied the team is shopping Ross.
