He said alot of the problem with the questionable charactors the bengals have drafted is because they only staff just one scout. In the afc north the steelers and ravens have 7 and the ravens have 9. I guess it would also answer the question on why the bengals have such a crappy drafting history

this is true. the bengals have the least # of scouts of any team. i commented on this in the kordell thread. it stands to reason kordell sucked most of his career because the steelers never provided him with a qb coach. it also stands to reason the bungles will draft crappy players and have no clue to their character if they dont provide their team with scouts.

the ravens have an excellent scouting staff. of course ozzie newsome is a great gm who understands the importance of scouting.

But the Bengals have had a clue to the character of some players ahead and choose to draft them anyway. I'm thinking there is also a "care" factor involved. :wink02:
