    Re: Marvin out?

    I consider myself a casual football fan - thus a casual Bengals fan - yet, I cannot yet tear myself from the team yet. I know they are hopeless, but I watch week after week.
    Perhaps someday, I will spend my Sundays doing something less painful like nailing my hand to a tree or allowing my neighbors to give me swift kicks in the groin with steel-toed shoes - but for now, I am caught in their spider web of incompetence.

    Actually, it should probably say, IF THE BENGALS ACTUALLY HAD A SCOUTING DEPARTMENT, IT WOULD PROBABLY BE the worst scouting department in professional sports, and it shows itself on the positions that are the most difficult to draft and develop.

    I'm not sure that's entirely true. I can remember reading about how Tim Krumrie wrestled Justin Smith and determined that he was the guy. That's scouting. Sort of.

    What's really sad is that Paul Brown was legendary for his ability to pick talent.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.

    What's sadder is that his talent died off with him, and definitely was not passed down through the family tree...

    And Chad said the other day that they did better when people were getting arrested, so that might be kind of scouting (suggesting they get arrested or look at all the guys who've been arrested), or at least some intuitive thinking

    Travis Henry will probably make bail, might be able to finish the season before he gets thrown in jail for his "multikilogram" coke transaction the other day...

    That's kind of the root of the problem. "Scouting is easy"..."just look how daddy did it". Whether consciously, or not, I'm sure that is a line of thought that has passed between Mike's ears.
