Re: Marvin to Bengals: Changes must happen, or I'm gone
I like Marvin, always have. It is easy to see his faults with some game management issues, but the Bengals have had two playoff runs and been watchable for most of his regime. He seems to be a decent administrator, a hard worker, and generally honest. Considering his handicaps created by his boss, that is commendable.
A lot of the player character issues seem to now point back to Daddy Warbucks, who is like the father of spoiled children that frustrates the mother trying to do the right thing and continually getting undermined by the permissive parent's unwilling to discipline the children and let them get away with bad behavior under the guise of being a generous person.
I don't think he's burning bridges, I think he is showing the courage to tell Mike Brown to do what is necessary to win consistently in the NFL or he's gone.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
