    Think about how insane you have to be as an Owner of a professional franchise when you won't let your head coach hire his own coaching staff.

    I just don't see this happening. Folks act like if Mike Brown would step away things would be rosy. My guess is Katie Blackburn would be the next GM and run the franchise using the same model her dad has. If Katie decides she doesn't want to be the GM, it will be her hubby or brother or another member of the Brown/Blackburn gang...

    Some moves made today:
    CB Pacman was placed on IR with a neck injury
    TE Coats was cut and TE J.P. Foschi was signed

    The Pacman move is a bummer. We'll miss him. Let's hope JJ is back this week. CB just got really thin

    At least there is a team that is arguably more disappointing than us, and that is the Dallas Cowboys.

    I would say the Chargers as well. Maybe even the 49ers, they were basically handed that division title before the season started.

I love the NFL, but I love it with the frame of having a favorite team and I don't know who I'd watch or if I'd be able to care about anyone else. Couldn't be Pittsburgh, Cleveland would be pointless because they are generally even worse ... maybe Indy, it's not that much farther distance wise than Cincinnati for me, but it's weird to think about.

    I really could see Brown moving the team, especially if he gets out of the lease early. What on earth would Cincinnati do with a huge NFL stadium, no team, and little likelihood of getting a new team?

    Would anybody go for Firing Marvin and bring in John Grueden? It's time for Marvin to go.

    I've heard this over and over. It's a nice thought but also a pipe dream. There is no way, no how Gruden will come here without being given total control. And there is also no way, no how Mike Brown will give it to him.

    I don't think Gruden is a good fit for this team but I'd take my chances with just about anyone. My guess is we're looking at Brian Billick as our next coach

    I know. I was living not-too-far from Nashville in 1999, and with a new stadium and a new team in town, I tried my best to forsake the Bengals and become a Titans fan. I was even in attendance at the first game at the Titans stadium, where the opponent just happened to be the Bengals. (That was not intentional on my part, by the way.)

    I spent the first three quarters rooting for the home team, but when the game remained close into the fourth quarter and I found myself nervous on behalf of the Bengals, I realized it wasn't going to be all that easy to just flick a switch. The Bengals lost that game 36-35 en route to a 4-12 season, while the Titans came one outstretched arm away from winning a Super Bowl that season. I was a Titans fan, of sorts, that entire season, and even got nervous during their games, but it wasn't the same. I still like the Titans okay, but don't really have any emotional investment in them.

    And as I was typing this, I realized that the 1999 season was all too much like so many Bengals seasons before and since it. On Opening Day 1999, the Bengals were every bit as good a team as the Titans. They went into Nashville on an historic day and nearly won the game. But from there, they spiraled straight down while the Titans were almost the best team in the league. It very well may have been another Bengals team that wasted its talent and potential. Sound familiar?

    Just get to 4-4. If the Bengals can do this they have a puncher's chance.
