I declared him a bust due to who his new offensive coordinator is. Bratkowski runs the most predictable offense in the NFL and even when the Bengals were in the playoffs two years ago and lost to the Jets, fans were still calling for his head. Carson Palmer never really lived up to expectations in Cincinnati and while injuries are a reason, I think Brat had a lot to do with it as well. Same reason Matt Ryan took a step back this season with him as QB coach.
