Change You Can Believe In?

For those (me) hoping for big time changes with the structure of the Bengals, ain't gonna happen.  Perhaps they will make some change among the offensive assistant coaches, but that's about it.  Mike Brown made it clear his scouting department is just fine, and Marvin is not, and has never been a puppet.  I know Marvin can't say a lot about what is, and what isn't in the contract.  But it sounds like about all he got in this deal was an extension of what already existed.  I agree with Brown that they have made some nice pickups, and they have some good personnel people, but they need more.  He pointed to odell thurman, chris henry, and david pollack as guys who should have worked out but didn't.  Well, there is a reason thurman didn't work out, and it is the same reason other teams took a pass on him.  So we shall see, but I don't think we'll see much difference from the past 20 years.

  1. George, you are so right. Here's a link to Mike's handbook. Great words of wisdom there.
