Bengals All-Pro receiver has updated his Mademen.com blog, and in his latest entry, he reflected on the 2012 season, battling back from a 3-5 start to make the postseason, and his picks for this weekend’s divisional round playoff games:
We were 10-6 and won seven of our last eight, finishing the season with back-to-back wins over tough division rivals Pittsburgh and Baltimore. I saw our team grow as a family. When we started out 3-5, people thought there was no way we’d be a playoff team. We continued to fight all season, and we’re proud of our team and fans. And that playoff game was, like many NFL matchups, a game of inches. It was a tough defensive battle, but we had an opportunity to win in the last couple of minutes. Unfortunately, Andy and I just couldn’t hook up in the end zone. A game of inches! The next step is simple: get out of the first round!
