Since franchise founder Paul Brown died before the 1991 season, the Bengals have started a season with six losses far more times than any other team. It's the sixth time in those 18 years that they've done it. Since 1991, only 21 times has a team opened the season by losing its first six game. The Bengals have six of those; no other team has more than two.

In the NFL, the Bengals are still the standard for misery.

The constant through all the losing is owner Mike Brown, who took over when his father died and has run the front office through one of the deepest stretches of futility in league history. The Bengals have only one winning record since he became the de facto general manager in 1991.

Successful teams develop an identity and acquire players who fit the mold. The Bengals haven't maintained an identity or a course for very long during the last 18 years. Often, the roster moves don't add up.
