Being GMC Professional Grade means being bold and decisive. At the quarter mark of the season, it’s time to put a stake in the ground. What bold decision would you like to see from your team?
At this stage, we have an answer?
Cincinnati is 3-0. Their offense is plenty productive on the ground, justifiability conservative in the air (until they go haywire with trick plays), with an impact on defense that appears to be better than what Cincinnati showed during the Mike Zimmer regime (read: points allowed). Special teams? Eh. Maybe the question would be better suited for the offseason with free agency or better uses for the team's third-round pick -- seriously, of the seven third-rounders in the past five drafts, Mohamed Sanu has been the only one worth a damn (as of this posting, at least).
Reduction in ticket prices?
Yes. Let's do that. Cincinnati faces troubling quests to freak out Cincinnati about the lack of ticket sales, leading to a panic so that the team will sell, sell, sell! At least that's the portrayal from those that still harbor ill-will towards owner Mike Brown.
Or maybe it's time to deal with a loss in concessions and stop selling beer -- and prevent drunkards from entering in the first place (but that would set an uncomfortable precedence... there are some naturally idiotic as sober that could be confused as drunk). Make it a little more friendly for everyone (not just fellow fans of an appropriate age) and watch the amount of people willing to attend surge upward.
That sure would be bold.
What do you think? What bold decision should the Bengals apply. On the field... off the field... it doesn't matter.
