ShulaSteakhouse Posted September 3, 2009 Report Share Posted September 3, 2009 I've always said a lack of true effort is the major problem with Mike Brown and his cohorts/family. It isn't that he isn't "a football guy" or necessarily incompetent, he's just cheap AND lazy. All I've ever asked for is real effort, I can forgive losing or "bad luck" if someone's making a comparable effort to everyone else, to win. For instance, when you lose 3 starting offensive lineman within a year's time, and have a fragile franchise QB with one winning season going into his 7th year, you don't sit back and rely on scrap heap guys like Kyle Cook, a couple of 4th/5th round draft picks who are rookies or in their 2nd year (who aren't showing much), and an average guy playing out of position to shore it up. You get off your ass and sign some someone solid or make trades, or at least make sure you get your #6 draft pick in on time. All I saw, again, was minimal effort to get better there, despite the ooing and awwwing over signing Tank, Roy and Coles - 2 of which no one else wanted any ways, and the other to make up for the loss of TJ.2009 Owner RatingsYahoo31. Cincinnati Bengals Mike Brown It's hard to put Brown's philosophy in its proper context, but here's a loaded attempt: He's the 21st century's answer to a Communist Party bigwig in the Soviet Union's heyday -- gaming a system steeped in shared revenues for his own benefit while setting new standards among his peers for brazen laziness. Says one owner: "Anything that's going to force him to do any extra work, he speaks out against it."---------------------------Those who are tired of Mike Brown bashing, use your freedom of choice to ignore. My contention is that he's not just incompetent or cheap, he's just plain lazy - which is even worse in my book. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
