Nothing to base this off of but you wonder at this point if a trade is really going to help the guy. I sincerely wonder how his attitude/work ethic played a part in him being a big bust.
So you just make baseless assumptions and declarations about anyone's character or work ethic if they aren't perfect? Maybe it was just the Bengals poor front office scouting the stopwatch rather than the film, and Ross has been working his tail off but just isn't that good and doesn't have the ceiling everyone wants/expects from a top 10 pick.

Lol, I mean it's my opinion, so I can make any such statement.

Don't think it's unfair to say that Ross has struggled with the finer points of the game...a lot of people have seen that live. Could you chalk that up to him just being terrible or unfit for the NFL? Sure.

But if you want people to take your opinion remotely seriously you need to give a reason as to why you have that opinion, not just pluck some criticism out of the air and slap that on him because it fits the narrative you've built in your head.

CIN would be a good landing spot. Young QB, they throw a ton, and they have no vertical element to their offense whatsoever. sigh. oh well

Might make sense for a team like the Dolphins. He's got two years left on his deal at very affordable costing. Get him in for a late round pick (I'm assuming it'll be a 5th or 6th) and see what you have. If nothing comes of it over the next 18 months then nothing much of value was lost.
