    Vigil is really bad. We need 3 new linebackers.

    Since Marvin Lewis took over the Bengals defense, they have allowed 316 yards per game. That would've been good for 6th best in the NFL.


    Teryl Austin's defense surrendered 446 yards per game.

    Interesting stat.

    Clearly Austin was a terrible hire - and the D was better but they still weren't good enough when it counted. Pass rush overall was lacking and the run D up the middle wasn't stout.

    And LB play - all year - was woeful. Preston Brown had a few moments early but he can't play in space, and Burfict, even when he played, didn't look good at all. Evans continues to be clueless and Nickerson seems smart enough but he's not athletic. You take Nickerson's head and put it into Evans' body, and you have something. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Vigil shows up at times, and he's their best LB... but that's not saying much. On a good defense, he's not starting.

    They just fired their head coach after 16 seasons.

    All bets are off. The plan just changed.

    And that's a good thing, and we move forward that way.

    Apparently Antonio Brown wasn’t actually injured. He got into it with Ben during the week and skipped practices and meetings. So he skipped the game too.


    Possibly now on the trading block.


    per ESPN and the Pittsburgh Gazzette.

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported Brown elected to sit out practices after the heated dispute, and the Steelers' decision not to play him against the Bengals had nothing to do with a knee injury. The report, citing several sources, said Brown became "disgusted" and threw a football in anger at one of his teammates during a walk-through.
    A source told ESPN that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was involved in the incident with Brown, but this wasn't a head-to-head clash, and more of Brown flaming up like he has in the past. The source added that it didn't appear Brown threw a football directly at the quarterback.
    Brown got upset that Roethlisberger wanted to run a hot read over again during a walk-through, so coaches sent another player to run the play, a source close to the situation told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Brown got upset, left practice and talked with Roethlisberger afterward, telling the quarterback that he felt underappreciated and had issues with people in the organization, the source told Schefter.
    Brown left and wouldn't respond to the Steelers, including team president Art Rooney II, the source said.
