And that my firends is Mike Brown in a nutshell. As long as he's in charge, the Bengals will never be serious contenders.Quote:
Palmer and others complained about the poor quality of the team's grass practice field and the lack of a covered facility for when the weather turns nasty.
When the Bengals moved into Paul Brown Stadium before the 2000 season, ownership had the option of covering a practice field at its expense. There is still no covered field, which is a drawback in recruiting free agents.
There aren't enough rolleyes in the entire internet to convey how I feel about this statement.Quote:
"I'm very pleased with what our coaches have done this year," Lewis said.
"A lot of guys weren't attuned to winning," safety Dexter Jackson said. "They were attuned to getting a certain amount of yards or a certain amount of this instead of winning the game."
You'd think he pony up for the covered practice field, he got a half billion dollar stadium for pretty much nothing thanks to wonderful Bob Beddinghaus screwing over the tax payers of Hamilton county.
If they aren't on the phone to Rex Ryan right now there is no hope for them. Ole Chuck better be packing his bags too.
If Chuck hasn't packed his bags by now, there is something wrong. He is a terrible defensive coordinator. He had something good going on with the Baltimore win. They had a good strategy of rushing the passer. Then, he can't continue that momentum. I think this Defense could be league average with a good coordinator.
How did you get that it was an excuse? We don't know the context to which he actually brought it up. I'm sure it was a sore point for a lot of the players on the team, and reporters know this. I'd be surprised if any comments he made about it weren't in direct response to a question about the practice facilities. I highly doubt he just volunteered that.
I hate hearing people like Marvin Lewis and Mike Brown talk about changing the culture of the team. Those guys have done nothing to change their outdated style.
Now that UC is going to be getting an indoor facility (due to Brian Kelly's new contract), I'm sure Mike Brown will push for being allowed to use it. That means he won't have to fork out the money to finance it on his own.
It's pretty sad that it takes the University football team to get something done that should be a no-brainer for the NFL team.
Mike Brown's a twerp.
I wish we let them move when we had the chance :o
