Earlier today, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told the media to expect some high draft picks to be spent on defensive players. The Bengals invested in seven (three re-signed) free agents on that side of the ball this year. Do you think Marvin is telling the truth or throwing teams off of their scent?

If he is telling the truth, do you think it's a wise route to take? The team ranked No.7 in overall defense last year, but was in the middle of the pack on offense. Given the trend of "a pass-happy league", do you think they should go offense early on this weekend?

Stand on your soapbox and shout your opinions, my friends.
