Default How good does Bengal nation feel about our team

We havent dominated opponents like this 3 straight in a long time. That 4 game skid was atrocious even though their was some bad officiating in the Broncos game. I want to see where Bengal nation feels about the team right now.

I feel about, by using my hands. How else can you feel about?

J/K

I feel, "cautiously optimistic".

I keep hope every year until it is mathematically impossible. I just can't help it.

If you want to look as a whole back to back winning records cannot be seen as a disappointment.

I feel pretty good about the Bengals chances of post season play. They seem to have "found" themselves, and are now performing as a team, on both sides of the ball. Teams that are strong in the back half of the season usually have a better chance of success in the playoffs, as well.

I am gonna say none of the above . We will have back to back winning seasons with back to back playoff visits . But we will win our first game to finaly break that loosing streak . But sadly loose our second game . But watch out next year . Super bowl champs next year mark my words ....

Why is there no "9-7 & make the playoffs" or "10-6 with a WC win" option?

I think we back into the playoffs again.

I think we can't look to the past, nor always been projecting things to the future.

Every year its the same ********: "We have the base, lets wait 2 or 3 years for some people develop, to get more solid, to have this and that to maybe get a playoff win and bla bla bla. This year we lost, but next year we will maintain the good things and upgrade the weakness."
This is almost impossible to do. Don't need to go much time ago, but how many starters from the 09 team that are still here? Every year we have to improve in all areas, sounds obvious but we don't act with this in mind.

As if you get to the superbowl you need to have back to back winning seasons, and a lot of other records that sometimes don't tell much (because of the context, irregularities, various conditions).

I'll tell you my opinion: We need to start looking to SB as our goal, and not to get a single damn PO win. We need to think big, I know it is hard with the last decades behind us, but some teams are always contender and others make shots sometimes. Lets move to the group that are always conteder.

We don't have much margin for error. Even so, I'd give us about a 30% chance of winning our first playoff game in a very long time. We will see.

I've been saying Marvin Lewis Special since the offseason. Snake bitten my entire life - you'll excuse me if I change my ways now that I'm on my way into my 30's.

I am predicting 9-7 but no playoffs...Though I will be happy that we end the "no back to back winning seasons" thing.

Maybe we are this year's Giants (last seed wildcard team turning it on at the end of the season). I accidentally chose 10-6 no playoff win...I thought we were voting for the record. Didn't read the last part til after. I think we will go 10-6 but all the way to the SB

I realllly hope so...I would cry. I really would. I'm not an emotional guy, but that's what would happen. Just thinking about it makes me tear up a little...I want the Bengals to win the SB sooo bad!!!

Only thing I will say is my nerves are on edge this week. I was pretty confident we had the Raiders and Cheifs in the bag. However we have under performed when traveling to the west coast. Not to mention we went flat in the 3rd quarter last week. My fear is maybe egos are getting to big like they have in the past. Only time will tell. Hopefully the past is not destined to repeat itself and we go on a win streak like good teams do down the stretch.

They have 6 players out as of right now and they just lost to a bad Ravens team. Yes I said it, the Ravens are not good a team. We will handle the Chargers by 10+. Mark it down.
