First off, I would like to say that I am not giving up on my team. And I love the Bengals dearly and there’s nothing I want more than to get into the Playoffs and make some noise.
Well, the reality of it is, we have one of the youngest teams in the NFL, and we will probably have back-to-back winning seasons. But this loss just really sucks as we all know because we could have had a one game lead over our least favorite team, Pittsburgh.
It just seems like it’s not meant to be, when we win, they somehow beat a top AFC team with Charlie Batch; and when they get destroyed by the team we just defeated, we lose to a beat up Dallas team and make crucial mistakes in the process.
As a firm believer in the football gods; it just seems, barring a huge win streak miracle, we will not make the Wild-card. It hurts, it really does, like I said, I’m not giving up, and and I dearly want to make the playoffs.
But we’ve all seen this bad movie before, when we just don’t make the cut. Like last year, there is hope; we have some high draft picks, and we can make some roster moves to re-sign some key players to put us in great position. But we all know that the NFL is right here, right now, we have to win with this team. We’re still in this, but that 4 game losing streak is really haunting us. Let’s hope they prove me wrong, Who-Dey!
