No, but he has a decent shot to at least make PS, if not the 53

I know, right? I love Burfict and I think he might have a future as a starter here (next year), but it's kinda silly to think he will start over Rey THIS season.

If he continues to play like he did in the first Preseason game he won't clear waivers, if he flops in the last 3 he might have a shot at it.

bengals Re: Rey M. not at 100% should Burfict start in ATL?

Burfict is a beast.It was a early christmas present that we got him as a rookie free agent.Rey better get healthy and pick it up or hes in trouble!!!I think Burfict will continue to improve and he will be the starter.I think i read somewhere that Rey will be back for the Green Bay game if thats the case then he will definatley start in Atlanta.If not then he gets the job week 2-4.

I think he should get some snaps with the 1st team, but not start. You need to keep him hungry.

There is little doubt that he will make the 53 man roster, he will probably be active on game days. I can forsee him being the primary back-up by the end of the season.

The Bengals prefer to not start people right out of the gate (some exceptions with 1st and 2nd rounders). Look at Geno, I thought he should have taken Tank's place by mid-season, but they waited until the next season.

Depth charts mean very little at this point in the NFL.
Only the obvious starters are set in stone at this point, everyone else is interchangeable.

Burfict and Muck should both get a chance to get some good reps in with the first team, while Rey is out.

I really don't know what to say about the results of this poll. I thought for the longest time that we had some pretty knowledgable fans on here. How can ANYBODY think that Burfict will WIN the starting job with a good preseason start?

I don't get it. Don't get me wrong, he may win the job halfway through the season, but I can't see any scenario where he wins it Thursday night.

Maybe people were thinking the poll question meant would he win more playing time or would he eventually win the starting job. I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt to our board.

Here's my complete take on it. He may be the best MLB that the Bengals have.....but maybe not. You have absolutely no clue what you're going to get out of the guy. SO....for the time being, he'll remain our #4 MLB; behind Rey, Muck, and Skuta. I think he'll make the 53, but to think that he'll be starting is jumping the gun....big time.

I wouldn't say he is the #4 at this point. I'm guessing he has already showed enough in the coaches minds that he is either #2 or #2b. If it comes down keeping him or Muckelroy, I think Muckelroy is gone.

A word alot of ppl forget is chemistry. It exists. Same reason Carson didntstart, same reason nate and leon will start if healthy. You can't really coach chemistry imo the players have to find it and when they do you nurture it

There maybe some truth into what you say, but Burfict MIGHT be the exception to rule of thumb in this case.

With out any insight to what's going on with the team or listen to what the coaches are saying I'd side with you. But ML said "he see's Burfict as the future starter." If 5 people hear ML say that you could 5 different opinions on what it means. I guess it's all what we want to believe. I think it speaks highly of Burfict and he could be a starter a day from now or 2 years from now.

I have a hard time thinking that. IF he were a 1st round pick, maybe I could buy into it. But to say he's going to win a starting job in preseason as undrafted rookie over a guy that Zimmer seems to like is a little iffy.

If he continues to look good, he'll make the 53 with no problem.


He won't, however, win the starting job.

Well looks like according to the pregame that Muckelroy gets the starting nod at MLB.

Happened really fast too. One of the poor moves by a Mod.

They have to deal with a lot of stuff though so give them a break.

I will give them a break but it wasn't my thread either lol

Burfict has his share of haters on this board and some of it he deserves due to choices he made. In college he had family and academic issues (too many distractions) he didn't handle right. That's all behind him and I believe this kid has the ability to become special on the football field. As long as he continues to listen an learn from Zim.
If nothing else, starting Burfict will light a barn fire under Rey's ---!


Just looking through the rear view mirror at some of the OPINIONS posted before the start of the regular season this year. Simply for the sake of fun and nothing to do with being cynical.
