I think it was Jay Cutler I was listening to this morning on WLW (not sure); but I agree with his sentiment..... players(talent) is everything and coaching is secondary. Everyone's really giving Marvin a hard time right now, and claiming he's not a very good coach. But would this defense be better, and is it possible the Bengals could be 2-1, maybe 3-0, if they had Thurman and Pollack in there? As well as Henry on the offense? Haven't they also had some other injuries too? Coaches can't prerevent those.
If so, then Marvin would be hailed a genius.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
So, if Rudi is out, does Dorsey get his carries with Watson remaining the 3rd down back?
Last year's suspension of Odell was understandable. This year's is crazy. Who would have thought that a missed probation hearing would result in a year's suspension? I know I was caught off guard by that and I would think Marvin was too.
But really Marvin has tried to address the LBs.
Not to mention the lack of talent and experience on special teams. The Bengals have had some of the worst special teams play I've seen in a long time.
I see the cheapness of Mike Brown showing up in the background.
Which is too bad since Palmer, Chad, and TJ have played spectacularly. I cannot believe some of the threaded needle passes Palmer consistently throws. And catches TJ and Chad make. It's a shame it looks like its going to waste.
This is the day of the expanding man...
One thing it seems that Mikey has rectified over the past few years is his unwillingness to open up the checkbook... a lot of big money and big contracts have been awarded recently to our best players...
don't the Bengals operate fairly close to the salary cap?
