Default Bengals in downward spiral

They passed on Patterson becuase they were convinced they would retain Joseph. Now they have neither.

Palmer looks to be sitting for the year.

Ochostinko got his way and is out of Cincy.

Cedric Benson in legal trouble again.

Leon Hall a zone CB may be their best player now.

Default Re: Bengals in downward spiral

I'm realy surprised on Joseph and that the Texans got him. all indications were that the Bengals were going all in with him. Looks like they just don't care. Though they got a top WR in the draft and have my guy at QB for them now.

It would be nice to see Goodell and the NFL take over the team and sell it to someone else like they did with the Dodgers. They obviously can't do that, but I hate to see an owner throwing his franchise away over and over.

Default Re: Bengals in downward spiral

I could've sworn the new CBA says the cap floor is 80% of the max cap, meaning teams must spend a certain amount of money on players. If you absolutely have to spend the money, why not spend it on quality players? It's wacky.

I assume Joseph really wanted out of Cincy.

Thanks for that. 89% is even better. Sucks for the wait. But man, can you imagine how a team like the Bucs would look if they were forced to spend the 50 or so million they're just sitting on right now?

Default Re: Bengals in downward spiral

I heard last night that the Bengals have had only two winning seasons in the past 20 years, which is also the same time that Mike Brown took control.

Downward spiral or just sucky franchise...not much of a difference, I guess.

If I were a player right now, I would make it so my contract would have its guaranteed money run out for the 2013 free agency period. That offseason is going to be a huge feeding frenzy for teams.

We've bitched about Bob McNair over the years, but we could have it so much worse.

We've had one in ten years (at least so far, 2011 has yet to play out I know) so we're on a frustratingly similar pace. Can you imagine what it would be like to be talking about two winning seasons in 20 years?

Being a Bengals fan is literally a waste of time.

I honestly think that I'd just stop watching the NFL if we end up with two winning seasons in 20 years.

At least the Bengals have some success in franchise history. They lost Super Bowls, but they still went to them.

The Texans...yeah...we've got that winning season...
