Mike Brown took over the Bengals operations in 1991. A year later he fired Sam Wyche in favor of Dave Shula (great move there) :nonod:
The Bengals overall record with him as owner is 113-202-1 (.359 winning percentage). Over the course of twenty seasons, the team has had two winning records, two. And in both of those seasons (2005 and 2009) the team lost by double digits in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.
Nine of those twenty seasons - nearly half - have resulted in five wins or less. This season will probably be number ten and make it an even fifty percent.
Besides firing Wyche, Brown is best known for incorporating language into player contracts that takes money away from them if they speak critically of the organization in public. He has no problem keeping poor character guys around though. Criminal record? No big deal. Criticize the organization though, and you're in trouble :frown2:
The Bengals under Mike Brown are a miserable, miserable franchise.
And people think we have it bad...
We Suck less!
