And maybe Mike Brown is content for the Bengals to be 4-12 each year as long as he can pay the players as little as he wants while still making a tidy profit. - M Florio
Flip flop: TV commentator Cris Collinsworth is among many who, borrowing a concept from politics, voted against the benching of Donovan McNabb before voting for it.
Working Sunday night for NBC's Football Night in America, Collinsworth said: ''Donovan learned last week the game could end in a tie, this week he learned the game could end at the half. The only thing worse than Donovan McNabb was his replacement and the decision by Andy Reid to replace him. You do not take a kid who has not practiced and put him in at halftime on the road against this Baltimore.''
During Thursday night's game on NFL Network, Collinsworth said: ''Do you get the feeling that the best thing to happen to the Philadelphia Eagles was benching Donovan McNabb? They seem to have gotten his attention. He is playing Donovan McNabb-style football that I haven't seen in a while.''
