Cincinnati Bengals Discussion

Recommended Posts

Probably not. The media and fans of other teams love the joke. The story goes in 2015, Marvin wanted to retire and have Hue Jackson take over as head coach but Mike Brown refused. So either, Mike Brown thought Marvin should still be coaching at that point or felt like he'd rather have Marvin than Hue or just straight up didn't want Hue to be head coach.

^It's like he can't help himself

 

Yeah there's a reason why no NFL team drafted the guy.  This guy is poster child for a future bankrupt former NFL player, despite earning over $30 million to date.  I remember seeing Pacman's Lambo in the Titans' parking lot around 2006.  It was the most amazing car I had ever seen.  I'm sure it got repo'd before he was signed by The Bengals. 

 

If you look at any of those lists of the wealthiest former NFL players, it's almost all quarterbacks.  Obviously they have much longer careers if they're decent but come on.  If I only played 3 seasons and pocketed the NFL minimum, I would have had no problem buying a small house with cash and putting the rest in stocks.

You do have to wonder what his presence on the field does to offensive players, though. The guy has no qualms about wasting away tens of thousands of dollars if it means he gets a chance to knock someone out. The Steelers seem to have him figured out and bait him into dumb plays, but most teams do seem to avoid him to an extent.

 

That said, the Bengals have always taken a chance on skilled players with character issues. Mixon is another example. I like it - it reminds me of Huggins at UC in the glory days.

 

As for money - something that's rare in Cincinnati is seeing any of our local stars out flaunting it. I saw Joey Votto in his Lamborghini once, years ago, but that's about all I can recall. But Votto level salary is on a whole other level that even good NFL players can only dream of.

^I saw Joe Nuxhall driving his conversion van out of GAPB once. 

 

I saw Pacman's Lambo when he played for the Titans.  Their player parking area used to be behind a simple chain link fence right next to the stadium.  This is right when camera phones started and people were lined up ten deep to take photos of this car.  It alternated between copper and purple depending on which angle you were looking. 

 

...and it was repo'd:

Can you point to a single instance where Burfict made a play to win a game? And the greatest players on Earth don't want to knock people out, they want them active for the entire game so they can impose their will and dominate them. Burfict has been a microcosm of the Cincinnati Bengals 2008 - to present, and its gotten the Bengals nothing, and wasted some years in which they had arguably the most talent in the NFL

Bengals reportedly pick head coach

The Cincinnati Bengals have chosen Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor to be their next head coach, according to several media reports.

 

The team plans to offer the job to Taylor, according to reports by ESPN, NFL Network and several others, but they can’t officially hire Taylor until the Rams are eliminated from the playoffs.

 

The Bengals interviewed Taylor during the bye week before the Rams’ first playoff game on Saturday against the Dallas Cowboys. They haven’t negotiated with him yet, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported. The Rams’ season could go as late as Feb. 3 if they reach the Super Bowl.

God, that would be awful.

 

It's quite clear Katie Blackburn is in full control now and is making the changes. The biggest take away is all those empty seats in PBS mattered and forces their hand. The fans wanted to blow it up, the Bengals did that. The fans wanted a young offensive coach, the Bengals did that.
