I'd be perfectly fine w/ the #1 pick in the 2nd round in 2013, if the 2012 pick was a top 10 pick. I guess the question is, how realistic is that w/o a complete collapse?

@ Minny ?

that's 2 wins, 3 losses and 4 ?s. @ Minny kind of feels like a win, but if AP can get losse and/or Ponder continues to play like he did yesterday, that's going to be a tough one to win on the road. Chicago feels like a loss to me, though it seems like you never know what you're getting with that group. Detroit also feels like a loss, but they can be beat if you take it right to their defense on the run, an area that Oakland plays well. @ KC feels like a win, but after yesterday, maybe not so much.
So if I split the ?s, and add in the 4-3 record to date, that puts them at 8-8, which would probably net the Bengals a pick around the 16-18 hole of next season's draft, perhaps depending on tie breakers.
I think I'd take that right now and not look back as a Bengals fan. With the suck for Luck sweepstakes running rampant, its hard to imagine Oakland not winning at least 2-3 more games at a minimum. Of course, if they do manage to make the playoffs, and the Bengals don't, I'll be hoping like heck they reach the AFC championship game, then the wheels completely blow off. The #1 overall pick in 2013 wouldn't be so bad, would it?
