I wonder: does Mike Brown think he's good at being a football executive? Is he capable of that much delusion?
I suppose it depends on one's definition of that. And I would guess Brown's definition is the only one that matters. Maybe he feels that if the Bengals are making money he is doing a good job. If they win, that's just gravy. Mind you that's not most people's definition of being a good football executive but his is the only bote that counts.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
And that is what perplexes me about our respective coaches.... they both got their head coaching opportunities because of their resumes/work on previous defenses (Ravens, Patriots).
If they could do it on those respective teams, then why not now? How about something even remotely close?
Is it possible they are getting more credit then they deserve? So far it appears so.
At least when Dick LeBeau was the Bengal's head coach he lived up to his rep of building good defenses.
I started the season thinking that 10-6 was a pretty reachable record. Now I think that 6-10 will be the absolute best they can do.[/quote]
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
I'm just speculating, I don't know. Perhaps calling him a liar is rather strong. Peraps he feels that he is doing the best job that he can running the team and injuries and bad breaks are what is keeping them from the success they had 2 years ago. A case could be made for that. From my perspective as someone who is not a Bengals fan, I don't think Mike Brown is doing a good job running the Bengals. The results speak for themselves. I think if they found someone who could run the team and let Mike sit in his box and sign the checks it would be a big step in the right direction. I don't think Marvin Lewis is a good coach. That statement would have been heresey as much as a year ago but it's not a disciplined team. I think there are worse coaches out there that are employed and maybe Marvin is good enough to led a healthy team to the playoffs every once in a while. But I don't think he is the man to take the Bengals to the promised land.
Check out Mike Brown's wikipedia page. Hurry, it may not last long this way.

When all is said and done more is said than done.
My point was that the Bidwell family has owned the Cardinals ever since they were in Chicago and they have historically been terrible - even worse than the Bengals. At least the Bengals have been to 2 Super Bowls. If the NFL won't step in and make the Bidwells sell, there isn't any way they will make the Browns sell.
