Mike Brown Believes Bengals Are A Different Team Than One That Earned Bad Rep
Published July 24, 2013
CHANGE EXTENDS BEYOND ROSTER: While the Bengals' roster has had a makeover in recent years, ESPN's Michael Wilbon wondered whether the Bengals' business dynamic between the front office and the coaching staff was different than it had been in the past. SI's Peter King said, "The way that they're different is that I'm convinced that (coach) Marvin Lewis … and some of the guys on his coaching staff can walk into Mike Brown's office -- I'm not saying get whatever they want, but if they make a good argument for something, Mike Brown is going to give it to them. That's different from the old days when Paul and Mike Brown basically were running it their way and they weren't sort of in the modern NFL." King said Brown "has gotten to the point where he trusts Marvin Lewis and will listen to him about personnel and all decisions" ("PTI," ESPN, 7/23).
