    We needed Burfict when we needed him.  I hope he gets in shape and plays great for his new team that I hope will be in the NFC.

    The problem is when they needed him he was never there. The NFL changed him and not for the better, but he also refused to change the way he played!

    Players and tape both showed he did not give 100 percent this year. We seen that and all called it out.

    Really sucks because I had high hopes for that guy hoping he would be the bengals Ray Lewis on the field. He was for one year, and was never the same.

  2. Man at this point they got better free agents with Marvin here. These guys they are signing seem worthless!

    Who is doing this free agency Tobin? The Browns? Zac Taylor?

    Either way they are setting these young guys up for failure. To bad I was looking forward to a new year with a new coach, but the Bengals once again put my excitement to rest. 

  3. My only issue with Brown is he is not a Nickle LB, he is to slow. 

    Since the Bengals play mostly Nickle who is going to have that role. 

    They need somebody who can cover! 

    Mother than that I'm good with Brown, I don't like how much they have him, but they did need somebody. Now please cut Burfict!

    Webb I never heard of the guy, but why not give him a 1 year prove it deal instead of 3 years 13 mil. This year they seem to want to throw money at guys that I'm not sure are worth it. Guess time will tell though.

    I remember COB and I making a joke about what if Marv had gotten all the guys he wanted in FA ( Whit, Zeitler ) especially on the line...

    And you see.  It’s not a funny joke at all.

    Because Taylor isn’t getting his guys either obviously.  

    Yeah... I bet Jim Turner and others really wanted Bobby Hart.  That’s just what you Have To Say as a coach, when you’ve lost the negotiation with the Brown family over player and contracts.


    Yea it makes you wonder a lot about things. As much as I wanted Marvin gone, i still think he was not the main problem. I'm still waiting for his interview saying how he was promised all of this but never got it.

    The interview with Palmer made a lot of things clear, Mike Brown promises a lot of things but never does as he says. 

    Who knows if Turner wanted Hart or Brown did. Like I said before he is young I don't mind the signing, but what I do mind is how much they gave him. He comes in on a 1 year deal proves nothing and gets a huge raise. It makes no sense, when there were better options to sign. I would have kept him as a backup and payed him backup money.

    The o-line has been an issue now for awhile, and this your solution, dosnt sound like a winning formula to me!  

  5. I remember when Marvin first got here, there were so many guys leaving, Marvin and the Bengals were active in free agency(not that anyone great was signed),but he realized the team was not good.

    What I find funny are the bengals were a terrible team, but yet they keep wanting to keep there own guys like they were great. I don't get it start over with some new blood, get rid of these guys who are nothing. 

    Why is Burfict still on this team wish someone could answer that one!!

    I see teams like the Chiefs who were close to the super bowl getting rid of pro bowl players for new guys. Signing guys who fit there system. Bengals nope they continue to sign there own guys, who played like shit!

    Well the Bengals as of now have taken the fun out of football again.

    Yup this is very true.

    Go look at when Sean McVay became headcoch, and who the Rams got in FA for him in year one and in year two. No wonder why he had such huge success.

    I don't want to say Taylor is doomed, but not sure the bengals are setting the first time head coach up for success here.

    I really liked the hiring of Taylor, just wish Mike Brown or Duke Tobin or whoever does the hiring around here would do a little more to help him out. 

    #Groundhog day for sure, with change comes the same story, just with different characters.

    I really don't have a problem with Brown coming back.

    Most thought that was a good add last year and that was truly the first time he's been hurt in his career.
    He's still the best LB (I know that's not saying much) on the team.  Just add pieces.

    Bobby Hart on the other hand can still go eat a dick.

     I don't mind signing Hart or Brown, what I mind is how much money they are giving these guys. 

    For the amount of money spent on these guys they could have gotten somebody who could have made an impact. Instead they give starter money to a backup. Yes for the money they are paying him he is starting.

    This team sucked last year, but they continue to sign players who did nothing for them. While other teams are in the win now category, the bengals are always content on what they have, even if failed the year before. 

    Marvin maybe gone, but I still feel like I have seen this story written before, year after year.

    Yeah they gave up way too much for him, and he's still owed a lot of $$ in the future.   But he and Landry will be tough on the same team.   The Browns aren't fooling  around.

    The Bengals will counter by re-signing Tony McRae and Preston Brown, just wait!

    They did sign Preston Brown!

    oh and get this 3 years 21 million!!!

    I like Brown but not for that kind of money. I'm telling you this front office has no clue!
