Carolina Panthers last season, mirror image.
The only saving grace might be the shortened preparation time. You mention the Bengals, but all 32 teams will suffer. This could early on be the sloppiest and most injury ridden season in NFL history as a result of the lockout.
My prediction is we end up getting the no 1 overall pick in the draft next season. We might be lucky to win one or two games, but we will be in prime position to take Andrew Luck. Andy Dalton will be this years Jimmy Clausen.
