If anything its burning bridges on the way out. Marvin is saying what Bengal fans have been saying for years. It's never going to change and its going to tie the Bengals into more or less hiring a Mike Zimmer because it will paint Marvin as somebody who didn't have the control to do what he wanted. No experienced coach (which is what the Bengals need) is going to come anywhere close to Cincy.
Marvin was gone anyways, what he is doing is basically giving Mike Brown an ultimatum that is going to put the franchise further on back. Sad part is, I don't know if I really blame Marvin.
