With training camp starting on the 29th and game days just around the corner, everyone wants to know how Andy Dalton and the Bengals are going to fare this season.
There’s talk about a “curse” and if Dalton can break his 0-5 playoff record. There’s speculation around who’s good enough to take the second and third spots behind A.J. Green. Fans are wondering just who will be filling in for Vontaze Burfict, during his three-game suspension (cough, cough, P.J. Dawson, if you want my 2 cents). Not to mention, as stated in Are Bengals Fans Really The Worst? there is apparently some entity out there that has deemed us the worst fans in the league!
Well, all this unnecessary worry just leads me to believe one thing. I think some of you forgot just “Who Dey” really are! So this Bengals gal is going to start the season, our season, reminding everyone of just that!
“Who Dey”, you say?… A team with a QB that has taken us to the playoffs EVERY season of his career. Who breaks records, holds his own on the leader-boards and is only the second player in the NFL, after the great Peyton Manning, to throw for 3000+ yards consecutively for his first five seasons. He’s led us into season starts like 8-0, and more wins that we’ve seen in 20+ years.

It’s a team boasting a five-time Pro Bowl WR—with 1000+ rushing yards—five seasons running. He’s in the same class with greats like Jerry Rice and Randy Moss. He averaged15.08 yards per carry last season, putting him in yet another category only held by two players in the NFL. And with my breakout pick for this year, Kumerow, getting a spot on the roster, who’s worried. Yes, I said it and you can quote me on this, give the kid some game time and watch what happens!
And last but not least, the Burfict suspension. It’s three games, people! We have Dawson and Dansby. We will be O.K., I promise!
So now that I have answered all the great analytical questions looming over us this season. Who Dey Nation, let’s not let the chatter distract us. Let’s prove that we are NOT the worst fans in the league! We need to get behind our boys, jump back on the bandwagon, dye your hair orange or whatever you need to get your hopes up to go all the way. And let me hear the whole nation say… “Who Dey, Who Dey, Who Dey!”
