It's not just a matter of improving the talent on this Bengals team, it's a matter of improving the culture, and the character, of that locker room. And that, my friend, is easier said than done.
I have no confidence whatsoever in this ownership to turn things around. Sooner or later, with no GM, and virtually no scouts, Marvin Lewis is going to jump ship and flee to a place where he can succeed.

And yes, we have issues on defense, but fixing the front seven (where the issues lay) isn't as such a daunting task as everybody seems. We SHOULD get two starters for the front seven in this years draft and if we just sign a quality free agent at LB or DL, we'll see a drastic improvement, mark my words. All the Bengals need to do is shore up and retool, not rebuild.
