Last week, I wrote the following post and never ended up putting it up because I felt hypocritical saying to not root for the Bengals to win when I knew full well I would be rooting for them against the Browns and Chiefs. But now, since it is obvious that even when we lose all flipping year long we still aren't going to finish with a high enough draft pick to get the right guy for our team, I don't see the harm in saying it. So here is my plea for a top 4 pick. Oh and a lot of this might be moot if there are actual real changes made to our front office hierarchy, but I'm not holding my breath for that.
Please Bengals, don't do it. Don't go and win your last three games like everyone knows you're going to do. This situation would be comical if their weren't such dire consequences. You are going to finish 4-11-1 and end up with the 7th pick or something around there. OT's Oher and Smith will get drafted by some team that trades up right in front of the Bengals knowing full well that Mike Brown does not negotiate with terrorists other GM's on draft day, unless it is to trade down to get Chris Perry and Keiwan Ratliff instead of Steven Jackson.
Mikey will end up sitting in the war room with John Cooper and a belligerently drunk and half asleep Marvin, and Cooper will talk him into taking Todd Boeckman, cause the kid showed a lot of class after being benched.
So if any of you out there don't want to watch Levi Jones attempt to maybe sort of get in someone's way next season, hope KC or the Browns can keep us in the top 4 of the draft.
