Mike Brown Dilema

Recommended Posts

I was just looking at playoff potentials, and had a heart wrenching realization.  It goes like this:

  • Pittsburgh loses to NO and NE, putting them at 8-6-1 heading into week 17.
  • Baltimore loses KC and LAC, putting them at 8-7 heading into week 17.
  • Baltimore wins in week 17, at home vs. the Browns
  • Bengals roll into Pittsburgh week 17, and somehow pull out an upset to finish 7-9 (wins vs. Oakland and Pit)
  • Pittsburgh finishes 8-7-1 and misses the playoffs completely
  • Mike Brown extends Marvin for his miraculous upset, calling it the building block for 2019.
  • We all cry ourselves to sleep that night...

Slight alteration, I think it'll go down like this:

  • We get destroyed by the Chargers.  Everyone thinks we're finally going to be rid of Marvin.
  • Beat the Raiders, beat the Browns.  Now we're at 7-8.
  • We get crushed by the Steelers in week 17.  Usual mix of injuries/Burfict dumb stuff.
  • We still go into 2019 with Marvin Lewis as the head coach...

Man, beating Pittsburgh in week 17 to keep them out of the playoffs is the closest thing we have to a successful season. No tears on that night.
