Yep,
I hate too admit it but Mike Browns 'Frugal ways' may have opened the door for the Bengals getting past the Wild Card stage finaly. as I think it's about 53 milly x-tra too keep key players and get a free agent or three soon.

Mike Brown is a shrewd businessman and has lots of money to spend.

I have no doubt about that! [for decades] unfortunately? [before the Oakland trade of Palmer] for a 1st and 2nd round last year worked out just fine.[finaly for the fans.]

The right draft picks and being stingy ,has now became for the 1st time in recent memory ,too actualy have not only the drafting talent that has been going on for a few years,but now has 3 picks in the 1st and 2nd as well.

As we post Brown is trying too sign all the core players up for promotion ,but may have some on the side for Free agents that they can rent for a year or 2.

1 pick in the 1st 2 in the 2nd.

Just because an owner has money doesn't mean he will spend wisely either. An owner can be too cheap or too stupid. It all amounts to the same thing..bad results!!

Very much so!

But he did show good results in trading Carson Palmer for x-tra draft picks and drafted very good for the last 4 or so years.

This season ,i hope too see this repeated in the draft and maybe a FA in a needed slot.

TH,
Cincy put the franchise tags on an DE, and have Andre Smith [RT] asking for 9 milly a year.

I can see this go 2 ways. 1] they work it out and he stays but I think they will let him walk as he wasn't very good nor dependable and held out during his rookie year.]

And Mike Brown is vindictive of those kinds of players.
2] they draft another OT ,and cut him loose. i'm favoring the latter.
