Every single year, fans can pretty much guess which NFL teams aren’t going to be a factor in their division and have no chance at the postseason, not because we can predict the future, but because some franchises are just really bad about putting a good product out on the field.
Former No. 1 overall NFL Draft Steve Bartowski had that in mind when he stated that Joe Burrow should pull an Eli Manning and refuse to play for Cincinnati.
“[Cincinnati] is not the best organization,” Steve Bartkowski said Monday. “You know, times change; things change. Atlanta wasn’t a good organization until Arthur Blank bought the team [in 2002]. It was a terrible organization. They didn’t know the right hand from the left to be honest.
“I know what it’s like to go to a bottom-feeder team. I’d hate to see that happen to him to be honest. They beat me up. I spent more time at the hospital recuperating from injuries my first three years than I did throwing touchdowns. It was tough.”
While speaking on that topic, Colin Cowherd stated on Tuesday during his show that he believes there are four NFL franchises that are “poorly run.”
Burrow is an Ohio native, but the Bengals are a bad football team that hasn’t qualified for the postseason in 4 years, and when they did rally off six postseason trips in seven years, they failed to win a single game.
The franchise hasn’t experienced a playoff win since January 1991.
