The Reds aren’t the joke of an organization that the Bengals are. It might take 30 yrs, but I’ll bet $ on them winning a WS before the Bengals win a SB.
Thirty-one and waiting on both. Though the Bengals have never won any Super Bowls and a hole generation hasn't seen them do anything in the playoffs. Our only hope is that somehow Mike Brown messes up his will. I've seen some off his contracts so I have a glimmer of hope. Plus the NFL has a salary cap so teams should essentially rebuild with top draft picks over a few years and spend the same amount as other teams on their other players. Obviously this isn't the case.
The Reds have to try and compete with teams that have unlimited money. This often leads to big gambles and hoping you get a short window before rebooting. How far do the Reds have to go in the playoffs before Bauer gave them an actual shot at returning? Fact is, Cincinnati isn't a place guys want to go in FA. So the only way to get tars from other teams is via trade. Around and around we go.
