          Letting the Broncos get Peko was the highlight of FA for me. At least this is one move I like and I'm laughing my ass off at how much the Broncos overpaid for a POS player.

            As long as Mikey collects his subsidy check from the NFL, there is zero concern. This is precisely why the USSR collapsed. It is so laughable to hear the Commissar of Disinformation say we are out of money to sign free agents. We could sign anyone we like if we would actually get fu cking creative with deals and actually accept the fact some contracts will end up as dead money in future year. Who gives a rat's ass about future years. This is a win now league and Mikey does NOT get that.

              yeah because they have no idea what they're doing in Denver.

              Peko was a world class teammate here, he was a world class leader here, and he is a world class human being...I wish him nothing but the very best going forward.

              hopefully he gets that ring.

                You said it, Boss.

                I remember (literally) running into him on Race Street several hours after a game a few years ago. He apologized for walking into me, and we ended up spending around 15 minutes just shooting the breeze and talking football. A very nice, real, man. You need guys like this on your team, and he will be missed.

                With Whitworth and Domata gone, who becomes the soul and leader of the locker room and practice field? Not sure those guys are there now.

                  Dalton/Green, Dunlap/Kirk.....that's my guess

                    L.T.,

                    I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to irritate you or besmear the admiration you clearly have for Mikey Brown and this franchise. I had momentarily forgotten that Mikey has modeled the Bengals after the Pittsburgh Stealers and the manner and ways that the Rooney's have operated that team. The comparisons are so that when you look at them, it's clear why Mr. Brown would make a statement such as that.

                    Just for the sake of argument, even though the Squealers have been around since 1933, let's just look at their history since the "modern" era began in 1966 when the first Super Bowl was played. In that time, they been in the play-offs 29 times. They have won the Super Bowl six times, and they have sent 18 players to the Hall of Fame. So, that means that they win the S.B. every nine years, on average. They are in the play-offs every other year, and they send someone to Canton every two and a half years. Yep, Mikey is right on! His team hangs in there stat for stat with the Evil Empire. Let's take a look.

                    The Bengals were formed in 1967, but started playing games in '68. In that time, they have NO Super Bowl victories, they have been in the play-offs 14 times, with the majority of those being BEFORE the"Mikey" took over the reigns, and they have two Hall of Famers in that time span. If my math is right, that equals to a play-off appearance roughly every four years, a H.O.F. player elected every 25 years, and a Super Bowl victory every ...............NEVER!

                    The man would have to be damn delusional to make that kind of statement, and you want to carry his water? I'd say that my position and thoughts on this team get a lot more support from fans, the media, or anybody who watches the NFL, than your unwavering one. So, sit back, read my contributions, get mad, criticize me, and then look at the cold hard facts. Any owner who operates an NFL franchise the way Mikey does, accepts public welfare to increase the value of said franchise, and essentially blows smoke up my ass with statements like the one above, deserves all the frickin bile I can muster thrown at him.

                      Technically the Bengals have more than 2 in the Hall of Fame. Paul Brown, Anthony Munoz, Charlie Joiner, and Bill Walsh off of the top of my head. I'm sure there is more that played for the Bengals that went in.

                        The Bengals own website only lists the two. Joiner and Munoz.

                          Marvin has it covered. He will get the young guys, who he refuses to play on the field, to take leadership roles so they are fully ready to be team leaders after they leave in free agency.

                            Whoa, Furn...relax. No offense intended. Yours was a heartfelt statement, and I get what you are trying to say...remember, I went through the '90's too.

                            But, what I was saying was: move on if it bothers you that much. I am not Dr. Phil, so no couch advice here, but life is too short to engage in something which causes pain or angst. There is no real gain by doing it--trust one like me who finally discovered it.

                            More than a few years ago, after finally figuring out that--as Sam so famously said below--this game/league isn't worth it. I no longer care what anyone in this nonsense entertainment vehicle does or doesn't do...I am completely divorced from it emotionally. And this has been a total 180 from where I was one time. Lima loves to taunt me on this, but when I am asked "why do you bother to go to games/watch on the Telly/etc.?", I can honestly say that I just enjoy the game for what it is: an entertainment event. Sure, I want my selected favorite for entertainment to win the contests, but there is--for me anyway--more to it than losing sleep over something I have no control over anyway.

                            But look, that's me...I certainly do not mean it is for everyone. Thanks for your input, it is appreciated.

                              A serious question, followed by the predictable 90's era ingrained response: check.

                                Maybe. 'Los is a straight-talk/no BS sort. I could see him especially being a media mouthpiece, as both Whitworth and Domata were.
