GregCook Posted December 17, 2008 Report Share Posted December 17, 2008 Here is one quote from Marvin as he analyzes the team's 2008 performance:"In the debate of talent vs. coaching, Lewis said this team has fewer good players than the '05 AFC North champs because "I don't think some of our good players work like they did in '05." But he also said it's a league of parity."Some of our 2005 players? Who I wonder were the slackers? Only 10 players left from that squad.1. TJ2. Ocho3. Carson4. Levi5. Kelly 6. Larson7. Chris Perry8. St. Louis9. Watson10. GrahamThrow Carson out, injured nearly all year. TJ, throw him out too, near Pro Bowl status. Graham? He's been fine. Kelly? Throw him out too, he's played well. St. Louis? Please.Watson? He hardly plays.It seems to me Marvin is talking about Ocho, Levi, Larson, and/or Chris Perry as reasons for the Bengals not achieving 2005 status. What a loon. If he had said well, look at our draft picks since 2005, not enough were good enough and we have simply got to do a better job on draft day. We need more scouts, more eyeballs on the players during their seasons and this will be one of my biggest priorities with the owner during the offseason. Another thing, we let some good players leave us in FA that we probably should have kept and kept players we should have let go. That is another big issue that ownership needs to address.
