On Thursday night, former Bengals offensive linemen -- and my personal favorite player since Anthony Munoz (I'm a lineman guy) -- went off on Twitter, talking about the Cincinnati Bengals because of a show on ESPN called Audibles. There's really no commentary needed by us. Just sit back, have a popcorn and enjoy the show.
I'm watching this ESPN show called Audibles. Steve Young says Bengals haven't had a strong lockerroom since Munoz
Man that pisses me off! Not at Steve but at people who wouldn't let the leaders on a lot of Bengals teams lead!
If you're in power Coaches, owners GMs etc you have to have a structure where your players that care can lead team!
A lot of time leaders on those teams were told to stand down and down get on certain players becuz it would mess up Chemistry!
And in reality they only allowed those teams to be DESTROYED!
That's why you have what you have! Year in and Year out! Nooone will publicly say anything. Give fans same ole lies!
I'm mad becuz that hurt a lot of our careers. THe perception that all players there linked and grouped together!
I feel sorry for Fans becuz yall believe anything you are told! Nexy year yall will really think its gon be better!
I don't blame any players. Players do what you are allowed to do.
I just really wish I came up in a Winning Culture. Wish the young guys there now didn't have to experience this stuff!
Because it only gets worse! When will we wake up people! Some of yall really think getting a new coach, draft pick will help! Smdh
Yes Willie went off! I look at the legacy we left and its crazy! Thank God I got to experience 2008!
Guys on this team play hard! I saw it myself!
I played with these guys. These players wanna win and be successfull. In 1 sense I can respect fans for pulling for players
All this becuz I heard something on ESPN that we've never had leaders! Sorry yall! I'll get phone calls now!
Willie Anderson, people. One of my all-time favorite players. Joe Reedy follows up Anderson's Twitter rant to get more clarity.
“You have to have players in the right system and philosophy. I could never tell the Bengals how to run a business but from a player’s perspective it’s confusing,” Anderson said. “I know when former players speak out it always sounds like we’re bashing. I’m not trying to bash. If you ever ask me for a suggestion here is what it is.
“I know how hard those guys work. They’re attentive and ask questions, it has to be something else. Whatever you have there, you need to give (the players) a chance to have a system and let it work for a couple years.”
