08:05 AM ET 05.04 | Coming out of the draft, fans always want to know which players are capable of stepping right in to a starting role, and the query recently came up in Cincinnati, where the Bengals added 10 players. Barring injury, Kevin Zeitler will be the starter at right guard. Dre Kirkpatrick could be the starter at left corner depending on what the future of Nate Clements is with the team. He is in the last year of his contract and has a cap number of $5.5 million this season ($4.3 million base, $1 million prorated bonus and $200,000 reporting bonus). If Kirkpatrick is their guy, then Clements could be a June 1 release.

Clements sure fell of the radar after he signed that big contract a few years back.

Just like the comparison of that white wide receiver being the next Wes Welker. Same color, so what difference does it make? Lovie Smith, Marvin Lewis... same guy.

Now if I see a Yao Ming pic instead of Jeremy Lin, there definately is a conspiracy.

DAMN, I got so excited that milk almost spilled out of my nose when I saw the picture of Lovie and all I kept thinking of was that the Bengals are stupid enough to take him... but then I realized it's just an intern error, and the Bears are still the stupid ones, because he's still in Chicago. Oh well, so much for spilled milk.

Or... Maybe the interns are invoking the true meaning of Dr. King's dream....

At least they picked another coach in the same league.

If Clements ends up with Da Bears, the interns will gain street cred in the fortune-telling community.

So, why exactly do we have a picture of the Bears coach in a Bengals thread?
