He will find a way. If not this year then another year just when the potential is at the peak.

Seeing Mixon and Boyd and Green and Dunlap and Dalton excited is what means more to me than anything Mike Brown has to say or do.

 

I still haven't seen the thread where Boyd has been re-signed. Is the old geezer up to same o'-same o'? Nervous

I think it's great that the team is excited and ZT is making believers out of them. However, the atrocious play of the defense is what really did us in last year. I have seen little improvement on that front outside of the new draft picks that may or may not pan out. What doesn't seem to getting much discussion is the defense.

I think if the D plays like last year, it's going to make the offense one dimensional as they're playing catch up all the time. Having said that, I'm pretty excited to see what Andy and the offense can do without Marvin running the show. Success is contagious and perhaps it'll rub off on the D.

I didn't say he was re-signed, I said he was excited. Players being excited is more important to me than the fluff PR being pushed out by the team.

Is Mike Brown capable of change? Or are things changing around him?

I believe they'll extend Boyd and Green. Well, I hope they extend Boyd and Green.
Katie, Taylor and Tobin use Mike Brown's secret free agent search technique.

I hated the Mixon pick and figured that he would be a real punk. I’m happy that I seem to have been wrong about him.

Never let facts get in the way of an agenda.   LOL

He needs to be able to play a full 16 game schedule for once in his career before he starts talking bout "100 more touches".

Good point.  Maybe we can spin that he's gonna get 100 more touches because he's going to play all 16 this year?  At any rate, Mixon has a bit of a big mouth and a comment about everything, so hopefully that doesn't blow up on us/him.  Winning will be the best safeguard against that, though.

He really did not come across as boastful. They asked him if he was ready for 100 more touches, and he said yes. He didn't say "I'm getting 100 more touches." He really came across as quite humble, but confident....

Winning cures everything doesn't it ?

I hear ya, and I'm not saying Mixon is boastful or negative, but he is quick to comment on stuff (though, many players are now) and that zeal to speak his mind could go sour if things don't turn around.  Or I could be wrong.

I see with my eyes and a Bengals offense has not been a threat to score 25 to 30+ points weekly in a very long time. I hope this is the year, but I see a lot of great offenses around the NFL on paper, let's see it on the field.



You miss the first 5 weeks last season? Wink

No, you're probably right.... lot's of people, including players, spout off on twitter the 1st thing that comes into their brain and regret it later....
