    Great article bill. I want to argue with you but I can’t. I don’t think anyone that hasn’t been able to wash away the memories of t.o and Antonio Bryant can. To be fair I liked both of those signings at the time for the exact same reasons that people are complaining about now. The Bengals are a good team that needs those few pieces to be a great team. Having said that I can’t argue with lewis in that more experience doesn’t always equate to a better player. If sanu and Hawkins combined could give us chars second year numbers I would sign for that right now. Your correct in that patience is key right now. The less they do now is the more they can do in the draft. I will still argue however that giving up a 1st and a third for darelle revis would be a good move to help put this team over the top.

      You compile stats from 3 years, show another teams arrest history and the Bengals are not even in the top half of incidents.

    I’m not buying it. I like what we’re doing in-house. The consistently good teams in the nfl draft to make there team better, sign back depth, and don’t make big free agent splashes. We are going with that system and it’s going to work.
