What are your metrics for evaluating success for the upcoming season? They can be team and they can also be player-oriented. This will be a good thread to reference after the season is over.

At minimum:

How many wins must we have for it to be a successful season?
Playoffs? Yes or No
Number of Playoff Wins?
Division Win?

Feel free to add any other measures. Also, I'd be interested in seeing player metrics too...
Winning the superbowl anything short of this is not a successful season given the the state of this franchise since Paul Brown passed away.

Can we just stick to reality. Success is not in the cards for the Bengals.

If last season exceeded our hopes and expectations, this season crushed them.

bengals Re: Define your metrics for a successful season

I know the usual answer is "win a superbowl".. but that's not the minimum needed for a successful season in my mind.

1. Win AFCN
2. Win at least 1 playoff game.
3. Young talent show improvement.

Off-season.

4. Honestly assess coaches to make sure necessarily ability/motivation/ingenuity still exists and does not need replaced/upgraded.
5. Retain all major talent that's still playing at a high level.
6. Make legitimate attempt to improve team through FA. (Does not mean VJ, Nicks, and Carr.. but it means at least sniffing one, and not settling for Wharton, BJGE, and Newman.)



If those 6 things happened, that right there is a successful season in my mind, and 3-6 aren't hard things to do for most successful franchises.

This. End thread.

I couldn't care less about regular season wins. I'll take an 8-8 season with a playoff win over a 16-0 season and loss in the playoffs.

I envy the 2010 Seahawks in that regard:
1st year coach
Losing record
23rd ranked offense
25th ranked defense
.
.
.
1 playoff win. Starting the back up QB against the 2009 SB champs who had the 7th ranked defense and 11th ranked offense.
Amazing.

...and that's what makes the Bengals playoff win drought that much more depressing.

I was thinking of them as I posted. Looking at a team like that, it makes you realize how truly mind boggling it is that we haven't had a playoff win in so long.

Paul Allen actually cares and wants to win. Unlike our owner.

Have to win! Have to win consistently, not once in awhile.

Thus, the Bengals are so far from a "success" aren't they.

Expectations change. Last year we were a 4-12 team that just got blown up on offense with no experience at OC, QB, or WR going into the season. Going into this year, we were a playoff team with a Pro Bowler at WR, TE, & QB. Yet we achieved the exact same result (which is nothing). All I expect is improvement, and we didn't see it this year.

The Super Bowl is the top metric for a successful season.

Seeing development of most of our players can be considered the success of this season.
