One team made the playoffs, one team didn't. Not too shabby.
One team is a consistent winner, with few down years, the other is a consistent loser, with few up years....

I think we all know which team is which

The Bengals and Steelers have both been above .500 3 out of the last 4 years so this method of thinking should be going away. I understand that this was true for many many years before that but the state of this franchise is changing. As a fan of 23 years I am able to look past the dreadful losing streak, why cant the rest of us? The Steelers are declining fast, they have no backup plans in place for Ben or numerous other starters who are aging rapidly by football standards. Our team is young in all of the key areas outside of DB with plenty of depth. It is now 2013, the 90's are long gone so quit living there and you will notice the things that are happening with this team.

Have they won a playoff game yet, no, will they, yes they will. They progress they are making leads me to believe that they will win several very soon. This is a new franchise from what we are use to, the days of one decent season then 3 bad ones are gone, catch up as a fan base. End rant

The AJ and AD generation bengals are getting used to a winning culture, back to back playoffs is not a bad way to start their careers. Thats the perspective im taking anyway.

Not knowing how stuff REALLY goes down in the organization, at least Brown will be forced to spend more money this offseason if ive understood things correctly. I guess im a positive polly but i figure marvin lewis will have more leeway to address the teams needs than in the past? I have no idea where im going with this post, but maybe just maybe if marvin gets the tools he needs on offense, we can see a playoff run next year?

With the cap room the Bengals have and the young roster, I hope MB does hire a GM who can set this team up for success for the next 6-8 years. We have a big window if we handle things the right way and spend money wisely.

You're in a good spot Bengals, go prove you can make the most of it.
Then, there should be no excuse for a player getting away due to $$$

Unfortunately, as in the past, the Steelers will come roaring back. I don't like the Steelers even a little bit, but they sure know how to build a winning team. Oh, if we could just learn how to do that...

Wouldn't that be so nice? This franchise is in a very good position, hopefully it can capitalize on it.

I am one that is totally against making a splash in FA for a #2 wideout. We have guys in house that will be able to fill the spot fine. Our in house guys are already familiar with the system and just needed time under their belt. Guys like Sanu and Jones will be able to fill the #2 receiver spot. AJ had 1350 some yards and like 11 touchdowns and you think he needs protection? At the end of the year it seemed like teams were able to get pressure on Dalton and that is what slowed production. also Dalton hurts himself with poor deep ball accuracy and being to conservative at times. The running game suffered late as well. Run the ball and protect the QB and receivers will get open.

Be nice to see the team go out and address the team's need at WR in free agency, as rookie WR's rarely have a lot of production. That said, I believe Hue Jackson is allowed to help out on offense this season, so he will get to help the WR's develop. I'm not saying Jones and Sanue will turn into Chad and TJ, but Hue is talented when it comes to WR's.


I also think it is nice to see those cap numbers as it will make it tougher for the Steelers to break back into the top 2 teams in the AFCN. If the Bengals re-sign all their top players and plus a hole or two in free agency, then they could make a push for taking the North next season.


Right now many are suspect of the front office and coaching staff doing what needs to be done, and rightfully so.

The North should be theirs for the taking next season. Ravens and Steelers are getting old, can't keep their playmakers on the field due to injury.

True, but I think our young foundation will start reaping more benefits soon. I think Burfict is gonna be a beast next year too. Hopefully Zimmer doesn't leave.

For you to compare one year ( a year the steelers were decimated with injuries) about spending money as if to say its stupid to spend more cause see look at us, we spent less and went to the playoffs and the steelers didnt is more than laughable, its downright illogical.
I think his post was more looking at how bright our future is compared to Pitt's. He didnt flat out say that but putting context from his last posts and thinkin about it I think thats what he was saying lowkey. Our future is brighter than Pitts

Actually, he did post a 7-8 record as a starter in 2006. The Steelers were .500 that season, but one of the wins came when Charlie Batch QB'ed for Pitt when Ben was injured.

Age of key players and cap situation was one of the reasons why I thought we would overtake Baltimore and Pitt this season and win the division ... but hopefully I was just a year early with that prediction.

I think spending a few million of that cap space to take the heat off A.J. would of been money well spent instead of hoping Sanu and Jones could do what they are not ready to do yet. Hindsight is 20/20 but this was an issue I think everyone was well aware of prior to the start of the season.
I will take the Bengals draft position also. We have an extra 2nd rouun pick (#37).

While the previous CBA had a salary floor, the new CBA does not have one until 2013; at that time, each team will be required to spend a minimum of 88.8% of the cap in cash on player compensation,[8] and 90% in future years.

Gotta spend money this year, Levittre from BUF is the only guy I would push hard for. Maybe Bush but I don't know. Focus on our guys.
I want nothing to do with FA WR, big money not worth the product and just doesn't seem to work out for this team.
