Revisiting the Bengals 2013 Season Predictions
Before the season stared I thought I could activate my true psychic powers and nail some predictions on the upcoming season.
Well, the results were mixed but overall I’d say my future forecasting is about 50/50. Let’s take a look at how my prediction matched up to reality.
Pre-2013 Season Predictions

1. Josh Johnson runs for 300+ yards this season.
Um, well this didn’t even come close to coming true as Johnson only entered two games throughout the season. In the preseason Johnson showed something that had never been seen in Cincinnati, a quarterback that can threaten the defense with his legs.
Maybe he can find a way to get onto the field next year with Hue Jackson as the OC, but with Jay Gruden headed to Washington, Johnson could be looking for a job this year, as it was Jay who helped bring Johnson to Cincinnati after their time together in Tampa Bay.
