I hope that the Bengals do lower the bar for their cheapest seats next season. The corners of the 300-level are not worth the $65 price tag they go for now. Those should be more in line with the worst seats at other NFL stadiums in the $35-$45 range. For what they charge for those remote outpost seats, I'd rather just watch it on TV.
Since LA is a 'neutral' market I get to watch a better selection of games instead of the 'home team'. Most of my friends don't want another NFL team here and it's one reason that building a new stadium is having a problem getting traction in LA.
Another reason is that the citizens of LA realize that Mike Brown is an extorisionist and don't want to see that here.
My main point was that Mike Brown, his daughter and her husband need to go. It's just that simple.
"For Reds fans, by Reds fans" Learn it, love it, live it.
I wouldn't be too shocked if Marvin Lewis moved upstairs soon and Mike Zimmer or Gruden were named head coach.
And I believe a lot of the changes are being initiated by Katie. Here's hoping it continues. A practice bubble would be a nice announcement after this season ends to continue the momentum.
Looks like a new pricing plan for next year. Cheap seats will be $20 cheaper
They also nearly blew a 23-0 lead with 6 minutes against the almighty Cardinals.
They have a 24th ranked offense...going to be tough to go deep into the playoffs with that.
I never said they should apologize for the schedule, but you have to take winning seasons in context. You can't say they've turned a corner when the best team they've beaten this year is the Titans, and they lose tonthe Steelers and Ravens. Every time.
Im a huge Redsfaithful fan, but I'd rank the assertion that the Bengals could beat the Patriots up there with the poster who said the Big Red Machine was good because of Darrel Cheney for the laugh of the week. There is no planet, no universe, where the Bengals beat the Patriots in a playoff game.
But we won't have to worry about it, because Cincy is going to be bounced while the Pats are sitting home watching it on tv.
What I'll never understand are people who think that a hundreds of million dollar football operation shouldn't be run by the most talented people in the industry rather than people who marry into a family and think it would be neat to give this football thing a try.
Let me tell you something- I own a business, a very successful one, and I don't have my mother as a sales manager. What on earth qualifies Mike Brown to run a football team? Are Katie Blackburn and her husband really the best this franchise can do? I mean, of all the people in the industry that have spent their lives learning the game, learning about personnel decisions, talent evaluations, and what a coincidence, Mike Brown puts his daughter and her husband in....and you say, "I've never understood why someone can't be good at both?" well here's the thing, my friend: they aren't good at football, and we've seen that over a twenty year same size.
Can an attorney run a football team? Not this one. Twenty years and not one playoff win. Zero. Nada. Nothing.
If you want to say things are looking up due to weak scheduling, have at it. I would prefer to have a team where people see us on it and think they have a tough schedule. That is never going to happen as long as Mike Brown owns this team, because he is a business man first, football second.
I agree with both REM and dom.

Also, in response to Dom, EVERY NFL team has the same scheduling format. It rotates every year. The Browns get the same chances the Bengals do, and don't cash in. And to be fair, that 2005 team never got a shot to prove what it could do in the playoffs, because their superstar QB went down on his first pass attempt.
Brown has an awful rep compared to the Lerner family in Cleveland, but he's sure won a lot more than them the last ten years, hasn't he?
