  • Mike Brown never changes?

    I keep hearing that Mike Brown never changes but then I look at what has happened in last few years and I say huh?

    First let me get all of you in an uproar. The Bengals never had a head coach over 8 years and that was Paul Brown. So there is a change because Marvin is going into his eleventh year. He also got a first round pick for a player he traded, there is a change since he became owner. He cut ticket prices, there is a change. He hired extra scouts, there is a change. He had training camp in Cincinnati, there is a change. Andy Dalton was first rookie QB to start the season since Greg Cook, there is a change. Created first Bengals team to make playoffs 3 out of 4 years.

    Okay now to get serious about changes. In four years the Bengals have made many changes in their roster. There are only 27 players on the Bengals that played for Bengals in 2011. That is a big change for a team, don't know many teams that has had that big of a turnover in it's roster. To tell the truth, I can't think of one team. But it get more amazing from 2010 there are only 16 players still on Bengals roster. Oh no I'm not finished, from 2009 Bengals team we only have 11 players still on roster. In four years we have about one fifth of our teams roster from 2009. In those 4 years we have been to playoffs 3 times.

    Who are the 11 players? Collins, Cook, Geathers, Hall, Huber, Johnson, Maualuga, Peko, Roland, Smith, Whitworth. Most of these players have their replacement already on Roster. Collins, Roland, are already backups. Cook should be replaced by Robinson, Geathers is being replaced by Dunlap, Maualuga with Burfict, Peko with Stills. Huber is punter so he should stay on roster for awhile.Whitworth replacement should be drafted this year or next and Johnson will be signing long term soon. And Hall will be here another 3 years when his contract runs out.

    Changes are being made as we have 4 picks in 3 rounds which are usually future starter rounds. We will also have enough cap room to sign premier players a year ahead of time instead of waiting until till they hit free agent market. We get them at this years price instead of next years numbers.

    Changes have been made but some are just to blind to see them because of the past. In the past there never would have been a change of 50% of the Bengals roster in 2 years of 80% in 4 years.
    As David Bowie would have said. Going through some strange changings, going to be a better man. Or owner.

    • Belichick on Brown
      Super Cat
      From Bengals.com 2013 Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, noted football historian, understands what a visit to the banks of the Ohio River means Sunday (1 p.m.-Cincinnati's Channel 12) when the undefeated Patriots play the enigmatic Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. And for Belichick, Paul Brown is underlined. Not Chuck Noll, the man that Belichick can pass Sunday with a victory into fifth place on the NFL's all-time wins list. "His offensive mind and the West Coast Offense that really should be the Ohio River Offense because it's really Paul Brown's offense that (Bill) Walsh took out of there," sai...

    • I ain't afraid of no ghost!!
      Super Cat
      If there's something strange in your neighborhood who are you going to call, Ghostbusters. So many fans don't believe that the Bengals can make the playoffs this year with the hard schedule they have. I'm going to predict that they lead the division with a 12-4 record. Here at Bengals Jungle I am the only one that has made this prediction. So to bust the ghost I am going to tell you why. First off, let's talk about team improvement. I believe the biggest improvement will be our rookie running back. Giovani Bernard is a type of running back that we haven't had here since Chris Perry. And although Per...

    • What if
      Super Cat
      The Cincinnati Bengals have made the playoffs the last two years and three out of four years but have not won a playoff game. What if things go Bengals way this year? What if Marvin Lewis decides that his coordinators decide what is best for their units instead of Marvin pushing his agenda. Point to be made. In 2009 the Bengals made playoffs as a running team, next year Marvin decides we need to be a passing team. Result we go from 10-6 to 4-12. What if Marvin Lewis starts benching under performing veterans and replace them hungry...

    • The Cincinnati Bengals 2012 and Beyond.
      Super Cat
      So how are the Bengals, going to perform in 2012 and how are they going to perform after 2012. Well, as of right now nobody knows. Most power rankings for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2011 had them at 32nd in the league. But the Bengals surprised many and they made the playoffs for the second time in three years. This years power rankings ranks the Bengals from 9 to 19 that is a big spread but is 13 spots better than last year. There are people that thought last year was a fluke. And then there's those who say they could possibly make it to the Super Bowl. Let's review, preview and analyze the new Cincinnati Bengals. I'm going to start from the top down and look at the positive steps of each section of the team. The owner Mike Brown and Bengals front office officials have made some positive steps. Number one positive step is having complete ownership of the Cincinnati Bengals, so there can be no in fighting among shareholders. After taking full ownership. The Bengals restructured the ticket pricing for most of the stadium. Some sections ticket prices went down. While other sections had a slight increases. Still, it made it easier for those less fortunate to afford Cincinnati Bengals tickets. The Bengals made the move, allowing director of football operations to retire. Not giving the title to anyone else, but the director of scouting Duke Tobin seems to be in charge. They added two scouts, one out West and one in the South. The Bengals also moved training camp inside the city for the fans, so the players could be closer to home. There was also changes in the coaching staff adding Mark Carrier and Hue Jackson. Last year Bengals added James Urban receivers coach who was with Philadelphia 2004-2010. Kyle Caskey as assistant offensive line coach, Brayden Coombs offensive assistant to Jay Gruden and David Lippincott as defenses assistant to...
