TheBeaverHunter posted a topic in THE BENGALS FORUM - For Bengals Fans *Only*We have all been fans long enough to know that the Bengals would fall flat once free agency began. Of course the better players on our team who's time has expired wanted out....they know that window of Bengals being just good enough to make the playoffs is quickly closing. We don't like to take chances...we don't like to spend money....we are not the Patriots, players are not dying to come and play for Marvin. We let our receivers/DBs walk last year and didn't replace them with talent...and it showed. We let our lineman walk this year...and I am sure this will show when the season starts. Our run game was abysmal...AJ really had no help. Losing our best two lineman will not help those holes to open or buy Dalton time in the ever collapsing pocket. Who knows...maybe the sky isn't falling. Maybe this is all of MB and Marvin's plan to get us our first playoff win in 26 years. They have belief in the young talent waiting in the wings. On to a couple other things.... The Browns - Does anyone else think they are f'n geniuses? I mean they have to hit on their picks...but jesus, the money they have and the picks they have set themselves up with is very impressive. The Osweiler deal was a very slick deal, they said they are already getting calls from team about trading for him. It's going to be interesting to see how this turns out. Hue is Hue...he will get his players to play for them, God I wish we would have been able to have him as HC. They could be very good very quickly...I would definitely be stoked if I was a Cleveland fan. The Bengals as an organization - I know a guy who was a athletic trainer for a couple seasons here and then got a call to go to a Superbowl winning program. He said it is night and day between the organizations. He said a complete 180...With the Bengals being his first NFL gig he thought that was the norm, but once he left and went to the other team, he said he realized how truly different teams can be handled from the top down. It's a shame that MB doesn't get it....
