Default The Bengals

So pretty much everyone and their brother now has the Bengals ranked ahead of the Broncos in the various power rankings. Am I the only who just doesn't see it? They have a pretty good defensive front and one great receiver, beyond that I have no idea how they think they can compete with the truly elite teams in the league (and no, the Falcons are not an elite team).

They're undefeated? And I'm assuming power rankings(which is junk).

Great D
Good receiving corps
Mammoth oline/running game

They are a team to be reckoned with imo.

They are young, have a lot of depth at key positions and have a great defense. It is a quality team.

They play NE in NE, Week 5, if they win there, time to take them serious, although even if they lost a close one there wouldnt be a bad thing.

Dalton hasnt even been touched yet this season.

Bengals have a very good team.

Great OL.
Good 1-2 with Bernard/Hill.
Plenty of good receivers.
Solid TE's.

Defense is top 5.

They are legit and could represent the AFC in the SB.

They're still coached by Marv Lewis. He can't coach himself out of a wet paper sack.

Probably finish 12-4 and lose by 20 again in the playoffs. Without winning a playoff game for the 100th year in a row.

Why is it time to take them serious if they beat NE in NE? Hell the Raiders almost beat NE in NE.

Cincy is for real. I'm sad we have to play them in Cincy.

Russell Wilson's career record against Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady is 7-0. After Sunday's overtime win, the Seahawks are still clearly the team to beat.


I love how those idiots at ESPN have to throw in CLEARLY. They were at home and needed a coin toss in OT to beat us. How does that make it so CLEARLY, lol.

Seriously. More like maybe the team to beat after almost losing a game where they had 14 point lead in at home.

Wilson/Sea has played them all at SEATTLE.

None of those games were at Peyton, Brady, Manning, Brees' home stadium.

But that means nothing obviously.

I think Seattle is the team to beat but they're a little weaker than last year imo.

The Bengals are becoming an AFC version of the Seahawks. Building through Defense. Putting together really strong lines. Solid running game and explosive playmakers at the WR spot and average QBs that are not asked to win games, but to not lose them.

Ah, yes. Trivia masquerading as statistics.

They look solid thus far but their early season schedule has been fairly soft. We'll see where they are the next four before we crown them AFC champs. At NE, Carolina, at Indy, and back home against Baltimore.

Cincy is for real. I'm sad we have to play them in Cincy.

Dalton has to prove it still
