    Even if Burrow thinks all these things, it's 5 years and then move on, probably with a record setting contract where ever he wants to go. He won't even be 30 yet - his first FA contract will be massive and if he's really this good he'll be able to pick his spot then.

    Great prospects have been destroyed by franchises in far fewer than five years.

    I mean, probably, but I think there's plenty of blame to go around when players bust, particularly in the last 10-20 years as things have modernized.

    Right.

    Plenty of blame to go around.

    Yes. It takes a lot of people for a QB to be successful in the NFL, just as it takes a lot of people to blow up a prospect. But, it's a fact that all such structures are based on the foundation or lack of a quality foundation at the top of the organization.

In order to win a Championship, Free Agency must regularly be used from year to year and at a minimum, multiple Tier-3 or higher players need to be added. The Bengals have never ever tried. They have in fact intentionally tried not to, guaranteeing failure year after year (if you didn't win a playoff game, your season was a failure, which is where the lowest bar is set by successful franchises).
    Bengals are like NBA teams. They overpay crappy FA or resign the same garbage we have and say, “Look, we spent more than you think on FA.”

    Yes. Part of Free Agency is not overspending on your own Free Agents. Pittsburgh, Seattle and New England regularly let these people walk, and rarely do they overpay for their own "crappy" Free Agents like the Bengals continually do. Should they make this mistake, they correct it immediately by cutting them or trading them.

    Re: 2020 Cincinnati Bengals

    Where is the direction of this franchise coming from right now and what is the goal? That's the only thing that matters. This Joe Burrow talk just seems like the perfect Magician sleight-of-hand trick for the Bengals. I hear nothing at all being quoted by those in control about plans, directions, goals. It truly is the same old, same old. Joe Burrow is going to have a disastrous career because he was drafted by a franchise that seems to be able to control the minds of the people in the community who absolutely refuse to stand up to their continual B.S. This "don't talk about how bad ownership is" thread is a perfect example of this. The Brown family should be feeling so ashamed and uncomfortable right now that nothing short of an apology and a declaration that things will change outlining exactly what these changes will be should be accepted by the community. I can't believe how spineless Bengals' fans are.
