I'm 31. If I'm lucky and live another 40-50 years I figure there might be a decent Bengals team in there or two. But Mike Brown could live another 20 years, there's really no reason to expect things to get any better any time soon.
I've been pretty patient with Marvin Lewis, but a real NFL team would have moved on by now. And if they hadn't then they'd fire him after a game like tonight, heading into a bye week after 3 losses in a row, in a season coming off a playoff appearance with young players. You'd reasonably expect improvement there, but instead the Bengals regress, as they quickly always do.
Andy Reid is still around, but for the most part, yeah.
Which for the most part really sucks, because I really enjoy football and the Bengals when they play well, but I'll never get to have the same feeling about them as I do the current generation of Reds teams.
