I'm not so much concerned about Mike Brown's past, I'm more interested in if he continues his recent run of successful drafts this next go around. We have a lot of really good pieces in place, we just need to put more talent around them.
We can agree to disagree. I promise this criticism comes from the love I have for my hometown football team.
The one flaw in your argument is that you say "if we continue to draft well."
The bengals have had, what, two good drafts in twenty years? Just because they have been recently, doesn't mean we are on some sort of upswing.
And you have to look at Brown's past. To think that after twenty years he is a different guy because a few draft picks finally went his way...I'm not sold, and maybe I'm becoming a stubborn old man, but I really don't see a difference in this year's team.
You take away one of those ducks and put in a slightly better team on that schedule, and they're 8-8 and we're back to talking how lousy they are again.
