Open Thread: The NFL Offseason Doesn't Mean Vacationing

Cedric Benson is acting childish. The NFL Combine is kicking off. Mock drafts are in full charge. This must be the offseason. But only in name. The truth is that there is no offseason. There is no period in which writers like us at Cincy Jungle get time off. There is no time for Bengals fans to sit back because there's too much to speculate on, too much conjecture or fantasy forecasting. Wait until free agency kicks off, the visits, the rumors, the false reports launching a conveyor-belt of updates. And let's not forget the hours after the NFL Draft when teams sign undrafted free agents, often reported from obscure sources. It's the NFL offseason and we wouldn't have it any other way.
