Re: OT: Why it sucks to be a Bengals fan
The Bengals will be against the cap this season if they bring back Rudi, TJ, sign draft picks, and a free agent d-lineman, so there's no money to sign Mason.
I think we see a different Mike Brown. The Mike Brown of the last couple years is vastly different than the one who ran the franchise into the ground thru the 90's Money isn't being spent foolishly on the Michael Westbrooks, or marginal CBs, or Reinard Wilsons.
I don't at all think its a ruse or charade. Lewis has great lattitude within the franchise now. No, he doesn't have a blank check, but he does tell the Browns and Blackburns where to send the checks.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
