Third post of the day. I truly feel like writing a lot today. I also feel that I owe this blog more because of the duds I put up in May and June; I could add August, but it was my vacation month and I was oh-so busy (which is why I missed out on giving my thoughts on Bonds reaching 755). Anyway, I didn’t write down or plan any overhyped New Years Resolutions. However, I’ll make a belated one or two right now — in 2008, 1.) I plan to jack up on my blog posting and contribute as much as I can. And 2.) Comment as many people’s blog posts as I can. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I read everyone’s blog posts (that I can fit in), it’s just that I may read them a week or two later. It’s hard to fit in comments on certain subjects. I like to make most of my comments worthwhile to be read, so I like to have a sublime thought in my head while I type. Thanks for the blogging memories so far — let’s make some more all around at this excellent community at WordPress.

The Bengals are doing some work on their coaching staff. Hey Troy, is Marvin Lewis about to be bounced outta there?
– For now, it looks like the Bengals front office is trying to beat around the bush. Yesterday, they tired defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan and linebackers coach Ricky Hunley. What’s popping into my mind is a query, namely questioning: where does Marvin Lewis’s job security stand? I think he’s the guy that has done all he can to get fired. Lost control of the team, the rest of the coaching staff, the game, etc. I don’t want to preempt the future for Cincinnati.

Bill Belichick is the 2007 coach of the year. Was it earned?
Of course it was earned. They went 16-0. Regardless of what any half-assed naysayer says, that’s a remarkable accomplishment. That’s two Coach of the Year awards in four years. Not too shabby. It takes a lot for me to say this good about Belichick or his team. It’s like going to the doctor and getting a shot — you know you have to do it, but you truly hate it. But afterwards, you have a band aid over the area and the afterthought is not so bad, but thinking back is sickening.

To everyone who whined about spygate, cheating and everything in between, and to quote Nelson from The Simpsons, Bill Belichick says, “Ha-Ha.”

Cam Cameron is out in Miami. One-and-done. Fair?
I’m not a fan of Cam Cameron at all. Granted, to only coach for one season and get fired can be unfair, but when your team only wins one game and could have won at least a couple of others that were instead lost because of silly gameplan management, that’s when the final straw is turning away. Better luck to him elsewhere.

One thought on “Troy’s Football Musings (1/3/08)

  1. Overheard in the Bengals’ offices…”Marvin, fire these guys or you’re gone.” “Ok, I’ll fire them.” Troy, I’m batting .500 which gets you into the Hall of Fame but I’m greedy. I got Billick canned but I want Lewis out also. Pray with me justice will be served and the “defensive guru” (and part-time bail bondsman) will get whacked also. As for Cam, he never should have gotten the job in the first place and he’ll land somewhere to be a career assistant.
