Default Marv admits "It's time to blow the whole thing up"

Quote:
Q: Five years as coach probably puts you in the top half of the league in terms of longevity. Are you as energized as ever?

A: Oh yeah, I am. Every year is a new year and provides new chal-lenges. They all become the history of the last one. You've got to use it and move forward and move on. It's time for us to blow the whole thing up and start from scratch. We need to empty these shelves, empty these offices and start from scratch.

Q: Really?

A: Yeah, because we haven't been good enough. We're not going to sit here and be complacent with it, and guys have to understand that. It hasn't been good enough.

Q: When you say blow it up…

A: We've got to start from scratch. We have to blow it up and empty everything. Just like new people walking in this door and go from there. That's the only way we're going to shake away from the cobwebs. We've established a certain plateau or work ethic and we've got to move beyond that.
So Marv.......you've built this team yourself over the last five years and now you admit that you've failed and need to start all over from scratch............and you still expect to have a job next year????????

Here's the rest of the story.........

I don't know how many years are left on Marvin's contract, but, rest assured, he'll be there for the duration. Bung fans still pack PBS or at least sell their tickets off to opposing teams, so Mike Brown is happy. He won't ticker with it if he's making money.

They have the crappiest Ownership/Management group in the entire NFL. Bad thing for them, good thing for us.

The fans at the Bungles site thinks it's great article!!

The seem to forget that last Monday, Marv did an interview and said nothing was going to change.
Now he wants to blow it all up and start from scratch. Must be a Christmas miracle or something........

Wonder if he had been drinking when he gave the interview? Marvin did not trash Chad completely and was not asked about Housh - wonder who the players are who complain about their contracts within "their groups"?

If I was either of the coordinators I would have inquiries out to other teams for my next job. It is easier to fire coaches than cut starters and take a cap hit (but Chris Henry apparently is gone if Marvin stays)

I know the Steelers have a brutal schedule next year but the Bengals and Ravens are a wreck (+ Parcells allegedly is interested in both Derek Anderson & Romeo Crennel) - 9-7 may win the AFC North in 2008

Or you can stop drafting thugs and then turning around and making excuses for them when they get arrested or suspended? Just an idea. Much like that organization as a whole, that man is clueless.

I don't want to read the entire article.

The owner is a jackass. Mike Brown should change his last name because he disgraces his father's last name. His father IS FOOTBALL in the state of Ohio. He turned Massilon High School into a powerhouse, coached the Ohio State Buckeyes to their first ever National Championship, was the Browns coach when the dominated the AFL or whatever they were in and then kept the dominance going when they first joined the NFL, then when fArt Modell fired him he created the semi-pro Cincinnati Bengals. Mike Brown is only in it for the money, I doubt he cares about winning the Super Bowl, much less the division.

I don't even know if they have a GM. But I do know their scouting department is the smallest in the NFL. That is a big part of the reason why they have all those troubled players. The scouting staff is too small to find the character players with talent, so they go for the talented players with no character.

Marvin Lewis, the head coach, has been an enabler of the negative behavior on the Bengals. He won't punish the criminals, but he won't make them take the blame. Instead, he makes excuses which enables them to do more stupid things. I also think he won't let the supposed leaders of the team lead. I have a feeling that Carson Palmer wants to call out that locker room, but I doubt Lewis would let him.

Palmer's whining after a loss with his "we're the better team" bullcrap doesn't help the matters. Crotcho Stinko's me-me-me antics help even less. And TJ Whouzurmomma, his smug attitude is just as bad.

Combine all that, and you have the powder keg we all call the Shitsinnati Bungles.

You have to feel sorry for Golden Boy Cartoon Palmer. He signed a bigtime contract to stay in Cincy not too long ago. Now he's been exposed in this mediocre season as a choke artist. He'll be a Bungle till the end.

"Team to beat in the AFC North" eh, Carson? Lol.
