Although Dave Lapham is right (“Title Town No More?”, December) — that Paul Brown was a more impressive owner/ general manager of the Bengals than Mike Brown — Paul was not a great Bengals head coach, as Lapham hints. From a winning percentage perspective, he was 55-56-1.

The Bengals have had only two head coaches with career winning records while with the Bengals: Bill Johnson and Forrest Gregg. Paul Brown as an owner and GM presided over an overall team losing record from 1968-1991 to boot. So much for greatness there.

The franchise’s overall winning percentage is below 44 percent. This puts the Bengals amongst the sixth worst current teams in NFL franchise history based on winning percentage.
