    Amen. We play any other playoff team and we don't even believe we can win

    He's missed some wide open receivers too. He's had a bad game.

    This isn't a one year problem- this is past years' problems.

    They haven't one a playoff game in twenty years and you're just fine with the GM and one scout because of two good draft picks.
    Then what point are you making? A GM would not have changed the perception that this years Bengals team was not going to win a lot of games. To change the culture you have to win over an extended period of time. Free agents aren't deciding who they sign with based on who is negotiating their deals, they're making their decisions on money and their chance to be on a successful team.

    I disagree. He hasn't had a great game, but he didn't have a bad game. More importantly Andy Dalton is not the reason the Bengals lost. Not even close.

    Dalton has been awful today, IMO.

    Nah I wasn't putting the whole loss on him, but I still don't think he played that great. He left some big plays out there.

    All around nobody really played well though, special teams to defense to offense.

    The point I'm making is that nobody is going to come here because there is no framework in place for winning. and there's no framework in place because there are no scouts and there is no GM.

    You are a star free agent in the NFL, and you have a choice between going to a team that invests its money in a true football franchise staff, or you can go to the team that doesn't have any of that but does have his entire family in front office positions and pays himself a half million dollars more a year than the most successful owner in football.

    I love the Bengals, but it isn't blind. You gotta call it like it is, and when you are the only football team in the NFL that hasn't won a playoff game in twenty years, you have to take a hard look in the mirror.

    Game really came down to Watt making a play he shouldn't have and Crocker not making a play he should have.

    That Joseph guy looked pretty good for the Texans.

    I don't really buy that at all. The paychecks get signed here just the same as anywhere else.

    Look at the Saints and Colts for example, they were absolutely terrible franchises till a QB came around to get things rolling. If the Bengals can keep drafting well and more importantly, keep winning football games, the rest will take care of itself.

    As a GM/Owner, Mike Brown has done an excellent job in recent years. He's about to win the NFL Exec of the year for his efforts. So our problem hasn't really been there, he's done a good job of putting some pieces in place to build that framework.

    The Browns have a GM and it hasn't helped them for squat. GM does not guarantee success. GM or no GM, winning cures all ills.

    Well we've had the same GM* for 21 years and haven't won a playoff game.

    I don't know, you think that's a problem?

    The only time they have went to the playoffs in recent years is when the schedule is weak. They have not won a single playoff game in two decades and Mike Brown isn't the problem?

    You think it's just bad luck?
