Bengals Fans, Media Suffering from Insanity

May I also add how Andy Dalton performs down the stretch of a season? During the month of December Dalton had a completion percentage below 60% and the last three weeks of the season including the Playoff LOSS to the Texans for the second-straight season, Leon Hall had more touchdowns (2) than Dalton’s one to Marvin Jones against the Ravens back-up defense. Which also means that A.J. Green did not have a touchdown in those final three as well. So for a team that is supposed to WIN THE AFC and go to the SUPER BOWL, we should re-think this when our star players do not show up in big time games.

I would just like to say that I do love the Bengals. I do not think Marvin Lewis is a bad coach. I do not think Andy Dalton is a bad Quarterback, or that A.J. Green is an under-achiever. I just think that maybe the fans and media are insane for putting the Bengals in a class of elite teams when we haven’t won a playoff game in any of our recent attempts, or for a couple of decades for that matter.

    Well Tyler Doesn’t sound like your much of a bengals fan at all. I believe we’re a completely different team then two years ago and do have the talent and probability to make it to the afc championship. Go ahead and dog “your team”. Your probably a bandwagoner that hopped on board after green and dalton showed what they can do. Go analyze for someone else, WHO DEY nation doesn’t need anymore doubters like you. And besides those are all predictions of what that specific person thinks will happen, it was in no way said that its definitely going to happen. That’s what football is all about faith in a team and to watch and see what they are capable of. You don’t deserve to be a Bengals fan, there is no place for you here.

      I personally don’t think that’s the case. He isn’t bashing the Bengals. I DON’T think he is trying to say that they aren’t good. I just think he is trying to add a balance to what everyone else is saying. While the Bengals are improving in their performance, there are still some aspects that people are jumping the gun a little about. There are good and bad things about everything, and while it is nice to drag out and put your faith in the good things, you still have to acknowledge the bad. That is what this article is doing.

    All the lofty ’13 predictions are a function of: 1) on paper the Bengals look fairly solid, with potential Hall of Famers Green and Atkins, and a pass-harassing defense … and 2) a generally weaker AFC than usual. The Bengals are worthy of all the preseason bluster, but are suspect, too, for all the issues Tyler raises. Timzilla
