SMARTEST draft choice(s)/Trade?

Ok, our Stripes are finally a serious team now, which in my opinion, is pure luck, b/c Mike "Lucifer" Brown didn't change at all. We lucked out getting Gruden from the Scotland Swamp League, or wherever he came from (JG is awesome-love him- but it was luck he turned out to be so good). MB kept Marv "Challenge Flag the Un-Challengable" Lewis, which initially seemed like the wrong move, IMO as an uniformed fan (who loved the CP9-T.Ocho diva drama) BUT... thanks to Marv's BIG BALLZ, Marv demanded control of the team (drastically less GM-wanna-be control from MB)-- Awesome. But...
Bottom Line: we got LUCKY. M.Brown is still the CHEAPEST CHEAPSKATE owner in the league. He still doesn't promote the team, demands stadium upgrades from Dade Co/Cincy, & relies on players to beg us die-hard fans to attend games (but at least buy tickets). MB didnt understand the importance of Chad85 buying excess tickets every game so Cincy/Dayton could watch the game on TV. MB will continue to make the cheapest decision possible, refusing to pick up high-$ FAs that we desperately need. He will want to get as much out of the draft, bc Rookies can't make big $$ due to new CBA.
We NEED Guards, a big-time RB, a big power WR (like Vincent Jax) & a completely re-vamped 2ndary.
SOOO... I need some answers from you guys.
1) Should we trade up for Trent Rich? That would be awesome & maybe enough star-power to put some butts in the seats; maybe even sell some Merchandise. Cheapy Cheaperton MB would love this Big Name bc he would be cheap for the 1st 4 years.
2) GUARDS-- deep choices in the draft, poss. Adress that at pick 21 (assuming a trade for TRich), plus some good FAs. But MB would have to spend for 1, so hopefully, a good FA Guard will get arrested in the next month, & ensure his place in Cincy (bc MB can get him cheap).
-POWER WIDE-OUT. Only options here IMO, are Vince Jackson, Dwane Bowe, or Mike Wallace. Only way this'll happen is if AndyD14 & J.Grud get on their knees & beg MB to spend. & we won't because he's cheap. MAYBE get Plax bc he's trouble & will be cheap or BraylonEdward bc he sucked last year & will be cheap. So Michael Floyd of Notre Dame is really only option.
--DEF. 2ndARY (everything)- 2 CBs & both Safeties. Doesn't matter how BadAzz we soup up the Offense, we'll be a sub-par ripoff of the Patriots if we can't cover the pass. Buy Courtland Finnegan, draft Baron (ALA) at 21. We should have got Routt from OAK when we had the chance, but that would've cost money, & as you can tell the recurring theme of this thread, MB WON'T SPEND $$.
WHAT DO WE DO?
ANYONE THINK MB WILL COME EVEN CLOSE TO THE MIN. CAP SPENDING THIS YEAR?? Hell No. We know he won't. He won't even buy a Billboard in Cincy.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON WHAT THE BENGALS SHOULD DO? versus WHAT DO YOU THINK MB WILL ACTUALLY DO? I mean, he only has $65 mill of cap space, so he's real limited on that end (sarcasm).
Bottom Line: Mike Brown is the devil, nothing has changed, until he forks up & invests in Cincy, we fans will not invest in his inferior product, despite our love for the Stripes. He HAS TO know that IF he spent 45-50 mill in FA aquisitions, we would come to games BC we would be a SCARY team. SCARY. the complete package. & all it would take is MB biting the bullett & opening up his wallet.
I hate Mike Brown, hate him. But I'd do a complete 180 if he let Marv, Jay & Zimmerman decide WHO to get, & spend at least 40 mill getting them, I'D LOVE HIM...
SOOO.... what do you think??
PS. I AM STILL INCREDIBLY PIZZED ABOUT JONATHAN JOESEPH. WHY THE F DID MB NOT RE-SIGN HIM? Anyone know?? Please take a guess, bc it infuriates me.
A typically frustrated, but never-the-less Die-Hard forever Bengals Fanatic.
Go Stripes!! WHO DEY!! SuperBowl bound in 2014!!
