I always expect the worst regarding the bengals. You can predict 8-8, with a chance for a winless playoff appearance every year with this organization and be pretty close.

I expect improvement every year, that's all. I'm not expecting this team to win the Superbowl every year, but if they continue to draft well, attack free agency, and re-sign their young stars, I'm happy.

Win the whole #$@$%# thing



Seriously, how can the answer be anything else? Everything else (free agents, drafting, playoff seeding, etc.) doesn't matter. No one cares/remembers who finished 4th place in the AFC each year. This is a professional sport. I expect my team to end the season as champions. Anything less and they did not meet my expectations.

However, saying that, I also don't lose perspective that this all just entertainment. Therefore, I don't treat this as life or death.

Echoing bfine: "WIN THE SUPERBOWL"

But lesser expectations can also offered:

a) win a playoff game

b) have an outcome of 10-6, 11-5, or 12-4 in subsequent National Football League seasons

To meet my expectations, they need to win the division next season.
If they get the Wild Card again, they need to win a playoff game.

They have to show they are improving.

I could keep going, and get more specific, but I'll cut it short. As a whole I want what I listed for Marvin. I want a playoff win. I expect a playoff win. Anything less is failure and I'll be unhappy. Pretty simple.
Last year's minimum expectation was one playoff win, and they should have gotten it...... This year it should be two wins, or a first round bye and then a win. It's still a talented team, and it should only become more talented this year than last.

Gotta raise expectations according to the talent level of the players, not keep them low with incompetence of the coaches. That's the minimum.. but I want them to win a Super Bowl. I just don't see that happening with this HC and OC.

This will be controversial, but I hope we don't sign Bowe. He's overrated.

Jennings or Mike Wallace would be nice.

You think Bowe's overrated but we should pick up Wallace?

Depending on cost...yes. Wallace is a #2 WR.

Bowe would cost what a #1 WR would. I don't see him and Green working out that well.

I would like them to see their weak spots and fix them, not go out and sign some washed up guy, or a first round bust, that someone else gave up on, maybe this year with the spending of the cap money, they will do as I wish, but I doubt it.

Odd, I actually see it as quite the opposite. I feel like Bowe was stuck in the #1 role at KC because there was just nobody else to catch the ball. I think he'd make a great #2 and probably around DeSean Jackson-type money.

Whereas I have always pictured Wallace as a guy who views himself as much better than he is. That whole "Wants Fitzgerald Money" thing... which was pretty ridiculous, and then once he found out everyone laughed at him because of how ridiculously he overvalued himself, he says he actually wants Vincent Jackson type money, which is still $11m a year.... and that's a heck of a lot of money for Mike Wallace, let alone a Mike Wallace who you're wanting to be the #2 WR.

Mike Wallace will go where the money is, because he has already been to a Super Bowl, but hasn't gotten a big pay day.

Dwayne Bowe played last year on the franchise tag, which was like $9.5m... he's already made some money in his 6 seasons. He has only ever been on a team that's had more than 4 wins, 2 times in his 6 seasons.... a winning team only 1 time in his 6 seasons. I am almost positive he'll be looking to sign with a team that will be winning.

Some people call Bowe a malcontent in the locker room, but the guy's NFL record is 29-67, and he was stuck on a team that went 2-14 due to the franchise tag, trying to catch passes from BRADY QUINN. What player would enjoy that?

Dalton - Do well against good defenses. He did decent against the Steelers defense, but I want to see more. And also be more accurate on some throws, but he is improving and I'm giving him time. Don't forget, this was his first year with a full offseason. His rookie year he didn't really have one because of the strike.

Jay Gruden - Be aggressive. There were a few times this season the Bengals were aggressive, and it turned out well for them. Also, get the ball to your playmakers, and run the ball if it's working. Would like to see more gadget plays with Hawkins. We saw a lot less of that in the later part of the season.

Paul Alexander - Quit. Or get fired. With as much talent as this offensive line does, you aren't coaching them well. He needs to be upgraded over. He's never impressed me.

Marvin - Get better at game management. Sometimes, he just makes dumb coaching moves. Players like him, and he knows talent. That's why I believe he would be a much better GM than HC. Just has to improve during game time.

Mike Brown - Give Atkins a huge contract, and fill in pieces and make this team a contender. There are some pieces that are needed, and Bengals HAVE that money. Use it.

Green - Great job, but get better at the later games. Over the past two seasons, during the last 4 games, Green has had 6 games under 60 yards with 1 TD. That's my only nitpick.

Secondary - Intercept the ball. SOOOO many opportunities, and so many drops. Bengals could have had the division if they hold on to some passes. But thank you, Nelson, for that INT in the Steelers game.

LBs - Don't be afraid to attack. Sometimes they just stay in their zone while someone is wide open. Read the play and go and attack. Use instincts.

Jay Gruden pulling out all of the stops on his new look WCO"ish" scheme...



Complete with a pass option with a dual center package(gotta get em' both on the field of course)direct snap to Roland then lateral to Marvin for the pass.

Make it happen.

As a Bengals fan, i have zero expectations....i know better. Anything we do that's better than 8-8 is awesome.

Although I'd GREATLY APPRECIATE it if we could win a playoff game or two.

Ummm, did you already forget Wallace wanting "Fitzgerald type" money?

A very good #2 WR that would work here is Brian Hartline. He would definitely be a very good compliment to Green. And not cost as much money as Bowe or Wallace.

I'm simply not understanding the Hartline love on this forum. I think people remember his name because he had that one game against Arizona for 253 yards and 1 td..... but for the other 15 games of the season, he averaged 55 yards a game, and didn't have a SINGLE other TD catch. It was the first time in 4 seasons he got over 650 yards receiving.

In the last 44 games, he's caught 3 TDs.

No thanks. There's a reason he'll cost a lot less than Bowe. He's a lot less of a WR than Bowe. I don't see him as an improvement to the team at all.
