When the Bengals won two straight games, expectations were high for Steelers Week. After another disappointing loss, it may be time for a change.
This was supposed to be the game. Week 15 was the chance to prove things had finally come around for the Bengals. The mass hysteria and insanity surrounding Steelers Week ended at Paul Brown Stadium. Things were going to be different. Certainly, the Bengals knew their slim chance of making the playoffs was on the line. This was the turning point. Not really. Cincinnati dropped what was essentially a playoff game to Pittsburgh.
Someone, please wake me from this horrid nightmare. I truly want to know the truth. Fans want to know the truth. Why is Marvin Lewis still coaching this football team? Professionalism keeps me from going into an all-out rant about what’s wrong with the Bengals.
The truth hurts. But, someone has to be the sacrificial lamb. Mike Nugent was tossed onto the junk heap, after a horrendous season. He was given an opportunity to get his act right and prove that he could make the cut in the NFL. He didn’t…he’s finally gone. Best wishes. Yet, why is it not the same for the Bengals’ coaching staff? Mike Brown has to be the most patient owner in the history of sports. Accepting the same mediocrity has become a habit.
How long will it be before someone is gone? Does it take a complete collapse to get a firing from Brown? Sadly, that may be the case with Bengals football.
