    Why the Cincinnati Bengals might stink this year, then follow the Cleveland Browns successful rebuilding plan: Gotta Watch The Tape

    Why the Cincinnati Bengals might stink this year, then follow the Cleveland Browns successful rebuilding plan: Gotta Watch The Tape

    Gotta Watch The Tape was moved from Thursday to Friday this week by the Jadeveon Clowney signing, but don't worry, Ellis Williams, Scott Patsko and Doug Lesmerises are still here with a film and numbers breakdown about something you care about as a Browns fan.
    On this episode, that thing is the Cincinnati Bengals, as the guys finish their run through the AFC North after breaking down Baltimore and Pittsburgh in the last two GWTT episodes. Today, Scott takes a look at the Bengals defense in the first half of the pod, and asks whether the defense might make a jump just by getting healthy. But there might be a problem with trading defensive end Carl Lawson for defensive end Trey Hendrickson in free agency. And the Bengals will rely on Larry Ogunjobi after signing the former Brown.
    Then Ellis looks at the Bengals offense and examines whether they should help the offensive line or the pass catching options with the No. 5 pick in the draft. How good is Joe Burrow, and does he have the right coach calling the shots? The Bengals had a bad time of it on the offensive line last season, but they have a chance to get that turned around pretty quickly.
    It's a big Bengals day, and Browns fans need to be aware of a team that might pull this all together eventually -- just not this year. Thanks for listening to Gotta Watch The Tape from cleveland.com.

On second thought

It pains me to say this but Doug L. really is quite insightful. He totally nailed the Browns FA moves. He’s at his best when he’s insightful and states his case. He’s at his worst when he’s abrasive and condescending to his co-hosts (and sometimes the fans). Lets have more of the former and less of the latter and I’ll remain a loyal listener !!

I love the round table!

Like GWTT but Dan, MKC, Terry not so much.

Doug’s maturing into a good host - he takes a position and challenges Ellis and Scott to support their position and the statements they make. This makes the pod better. The other version hosted by Dan is...... ? Vague and all over the map. I have no idea why they have Terry Pluto come on as a guest. He can be as vague and uninformed as Labbe, the combination of the two is just bad.I give GWTT 4 and the other version a 2.
