Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis echoed those sentiments:
“We’re mentally stronger,” Lewis said in his office Thursday. “They have that kind of resilience. But I’d say the season is more like an oval. There’s a corner (to turn) every foot or so. That’s the way I see it. It’s a continual process you go through every week, and every week, there are new challenges. And I think the resilience and determination of the guys will help keep that mindset going forward.”
These Bengals have weaknesses and shortcomings like every other NFL teams, but it’s how you fight to overcome those that determines how well your season ends up going. Cincinnati has manged to overcome their deficiencies to this point with a stronger will to win than in previous years, and hopefully that will helps them bring a playoff win to the city of Cincinnati.
