Default Re: What will be Mike Brown's legacy?

Since it's Christmas-time, it seems appropriate to compare Mr. Brown to a Christmas character (hopefully you see where I'm going here). The question I pose to you is this:

Do people remember Ebenezer Scrooge as the brilliant businessman he was? Do they remember the goodhearted, generous person he was at the end of the book/play/film? OR, when you hear someone called 'Scrooge', do you think of a cheap, hated, miserly old man who never did anything good for anybody?

If we win the Super Bowl once, or even twice before he "kicks off", those of us who were alive in the 90s will never forget them. A decade of misery, followed by a decade of mediocrity will not be easily erased by a happy ending or last-minute turnaround.

Mr. Scrooge, take a look at your headstone.

And to think at one time they were a HORRIBLE team, for a long time. It starts from the top.

Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't Katie had more influence in recent years? If so, it certainly has shown. Not as much as we'd like right now, but the Bengals have come a long way since the 90's

When you have the only restaurant in town, it's called 'monopoly'.

Ohioans love football, and loyalty is deeply ingrained in midwestern culture. Mike Brown took advantage of that fact.

Sure it can. It can always be worse. Bengals could revert back to the 90's form.

I hope Andy Dalton or Andrew Whitworth had a MNF party at their house last night. Hopefully they sat down on a big couch with Jay Gruden, Marvin Lewis and the rest of the offense and learned something because Brady put on a frekin clinic. He absolutely torched a great defense in Houston (they have been struggling as of late, but they have some play makers). Bradys reads and his quick snaps made it look easy. That offense is soooo explosive. They do it with Welker and Hernandez which is insane becuase they are without Edleman and Gronk.

I dont believe Dalton will be half of what Brady is, but the pocket pressance, awareness and stepping up in the box and putting his whole body into the throws was something Dalton could take notes on. Bradys play action fakes are pitcure perfect as well.

The Bengals have an extremely talented offense. Green is a pro-bowler, Dalton is still learning and Gresham and Orson Charles make a great TE tandem. Sanu was coming on strong until his injury, Marvin Jones has shown what type of play making potential he has. BJGE is bursting onto the scene. Our OLine is a dominating force. This offense has shown spurts of being explosive this year, but they have also faultered at key points in games. Hopefully with another year of gelling, they can be a high powered offense like the one we all saw last night in the Patriots.

You will never see a bridge or highway named after Mike Brown.
There will be no stadium with his namesake.
After he is gone, he will be remembered for all the wrong reasons and the people of Cincinnati will attempt to forget him just as quickly as they can.

That won't be easy and anytime in the future for many many years when things go wrong, people will undoubtedly say, "it could be worse, remember Mike Brown".

At this point---its about alot more than just a football team.


He will go down as the most hated figure in the history of Cincinnati.

Do you really think he can be a head coach, not ragging you, just curious, his version of a west coast is pitiful, at best, and if he is the one that went away from the run Sunday, I myseldf want no part of his game plan.

Except most of us like to go out to eat after church.

If the Buckeyes played in a competing time slot, I think Mikey would be out of business (or be motivated to field a winning team)

You cant tell what his legacy will be until hes gone...

so leave this one alone.. Im sure we all think that we would do better in his position but none of us can prove that to be true.

When he retires then we can discuss this issue until then he has time to add too or change his perception as he has been doing these past 12 years.

More to the Point Paul Browns Legacy was Mike brown.... So it will probly be Katie.

Mike Brown has singlehandedly taken this franchise, given to him by the great Paul Brown, and made it a laughing stock of the NFL. Sadly, outside of his family, there won't be many in Southwest Ohio who will mourn his passing.

No...

But a Legacy is something someone leaves behind for someone else.

If his team wins a SB before he goes his legacy will be different than it is now.

But if you guys feel the need to bash mike brown for no reason have at it...

you could have had a 0-16 season.. but thats never happened here.
Mike brown pays the Coaches Doesnt play or coach himself hes just the owner. i more worried about marvins legacy or TEAM he leaves for the next HC.

did mike brown due well in the 90's NO...
Has the last 10 years been a hell of alot better YES
if carsons knee isnt the recepient of a cheap shot then he would have some playoff wins
If marvin had his team ready for the jets we would have had another playoff win.

Im not a huge fan of mike brown. But the players are the ones not making it happen.

I have hear he donates alot .... where the hell did you hear that? I'm not being facetious, I'm really curious.
Great at giving people second chances That's not exactly a good thing.... he either brings in old has-beens who have nothing left in the tank or his staple of giving repeat offenders multiple chances to embarrass the team and further the stereotype that the Bengals are criminals


There is not a single good thing I can say about the man. He's greedy, stingy, stubborn, ignorant, and meddling... honestly, what is there to like?

He will easily go down as one of the worst owners in sports history. And the sad thing is... I don't think he cares one bit. He's got his millions, he's happy. Nothing else matters to him.
I am not sure he would be considered a "profitable" businessman if the NFL weren't a socialist organization. He gets tons of money from the central authority even though he fields a weak product year after year.
