The Time Is Now
Anthony Munoz is one of the most respected football players of all-time and one of the best offensive linemen to ever play. Known as a fierce competitor, he took divisional games seriously and fought for his team. The time is now for this team to fight.
The next AFC North game for the Bengals is on October 23rd versus the Browns. Between now and then, the Bengals will be favored in three of their next four games. Cincinnati should then be in prime position for a divisional win against the hapless Browns. However, if the Bengals don’t come with the understanding of the brevity of the battle in front of them, they will lose.
Watching Rey Maualuga tackle a Steelers player, smile and help them up should have been painful for a Bengals fan. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the enemy and have plenty players on their team to help each other up. Cincinnati players don’t need more friends or need to work on their relationships with opponents in-game.
Maualuga needs to tackle the Steeler as hard as he can, get up and go back to the huddle. No smiles, no jokes and definitely no helping the player up. Furthermore, while the refs and replay officials completely screwed over the Bengals nothing good can come from complaining. Time ticks away on every person, on every team and on every day.
"Consequently, the time is now for the Bengals to take the next step towards a championship."
