Wow, the game I saw yesterday had the Bengals giving the Steelers (the team
currently tied for best record in the AFC with the Texans) all they could handle.
Whodey, even when you get a product worthy of your support, you bitch.
You are a fair weather fan to be sure.
I owe the team nothing.
What has the organization given Whodey?
They are one of only 4 teams in NFL history to go 0-4 four different times. The Bungs are not only one of the teams, they have done so 6 times. No other team has and 5 of the 6 times have been under the Mike Brown era.
They are one of an elite few without a GM and with a skeleton crew of scouts. After all, who needs scouts and a GM when things are going soooo well for your organization?
The Bungs have gone the longest of any NFL team to win a playoff game, including the Browns. If memory serves, the last playoff win was in 1990.
The teams during the 1990's were so bad, Mike Brown erected a tarp to protect the players from their own fans from pelting them with anything they could find.
The team has been so bad in the past, the city sued Mike Brown, and tried to renig on the new stadium they built him, courtesy of the tax payers of Cincinnati. They underlined in the contract that they were providing the stadium so that he could field a competitive team. The next thing you know in comes Marvin Lewis and Palmer and they have their first winning season in about a decade and a half. No more law suit.
ESPN this year ranked the Bungs, not only the worst NFL organization in the land, but the worst professional sports franchise. A dubious honor to be sure.
So please spare me your indignation. Mikey desrves every last venemous gasp!!
Other than that, he really is a nice guy from what I hear.
As for the Stooler game, I watched them for the first time this year and ended up tunring it off in disgust at half time. I don't know which game you were watching but it was clear to me they were outmatched.
