The margin of victory and defeat for the majority of the teams in the NFL is very narrow. I'm not qualified to evaluate football talent, but by all accounts the Bengals are one of the better teams talent wise. So what separates mostly equally talented teams from one another? The answer to me is the coaching, game planning, and game management. Love him or hate him, Belichick is one of the best in the last 20 years. I think the current coachinging staff is below average. I credit Marvin as a GM for putting together a talented roster, but I'm sick and tired of being out schemed and out managed most games.
