Re: According to FOX Sports, the worst call in the NFL this season was...
I know i am really late to respond to this thread......lost password and all....
BUT being a bengal fan since 1974........ this is par for the course with this team.
Always something missing.......always too young, immature.
By thje time they put it together and make a run...it lasts 1 year and then they go into the tank for 3-5 years (1978-1980) (1983-1985, 1987)....and of course the horrific run of the 90's.
Why this team...and even some of those 80's teams....seem to lack character to win a big game....or sustain a good run sometimes mystifies me but most times i attribute it to...the way the Brown's run things.
The "we tried our best so it's okay" attitude that Mike Brown has.... always seems to seep it's way into the Bengal way of playing.
This is the guy who was quoted (and never denied) as saying "It would cost more to have a Super Bowl winner" than a team who competed but mainly never really went anywhere."
Heck...i still have not gotten over Paul Brown letting Bill Walsh leave after 1975. So i really have a hard time dealing with his son who has none of his father's football acumen BUT all of his tightness and inability to change his methods.
