It's impossible to have a relevant conversation about the Bengals, unless its a conversation about a specific game, without talking about Mike Brown. Now, I don't know that a thread about a playoff game is the place to have it, but any conversation about the future prospects of the organization, holes needing filled, or anything else that has to do with getting to where the team needs to be pretty much HAS to center around Mike Brown.
Having said that, I disagree with Dom about why they lost this specific game. I don't think it was because of personnel and such. The Bengals had the players to beat the Texans. I thought they outplayed them in the first half, but were completely lost from a scheme perspective in the second half. They seemed to know what was coming on both sides of the ball. They had the right D called for the Bengals offense and the offense figured out how to move it against the Bengals D. They were outmaneuvered in the second half. It wasn't about the players in this specific game.
