While at times he's looked pretty good I could never put full trust in him. My eyes about popped out of my head when I saw that deal he got (6yr/114m) but, when reading the fine print it's fairly team friendly. IF they don't make it out of the wild-card round you have to think about drafting someone or pick up a vet and have an open comp next year in camp.
I did the same thing as a cowboys fan when romo got that huge deal lol I was like......"the man has not gotten us to the playoffs in 4 years and he gets a 5 year deal?

Mcanabb-09

Vick-10

Foles-13


Not the same guy I guess that is the difference between Cincinnati and Philadelpphia

If they lose this week and next week, I think for sure Marvin Lewis is out the door, and if Dalton falters in the playoffs in 2015 I think he's outta there the following season. Fore sure though Lewis is gone before Dalton: the guy is the second longest tenured coach in the NFL after Bill Bellicheck and he's got the same number of playoff wins as the Bills, who currently have the longest playoff drought in the NFL. I know back in 05 was bad luck with Carson Palmer getting hurt and in 09 they ran into the best Jets team in 45 years but when you get to the playoffs time and after time and consistently fail (he's gone 0-5 in the playoffs despite having 3 of the 5 games at home), you have to move on.

Chicago, New York, or Philadelphia
