This is a good group of guys. Not the low-character guys of the last few years. But until they show they can get over the 1st round hump and actually compete with the big boys, I have no reason to believe they can.
How did the Cowboys have no interest in winning? Their players get paid too, and they're also in a playoff race.
I just don't understand the need for so many Bengals fans to be so bipolar about the team. We don't have to either be the Bungles or the Superbowl favorites. There's a lot of teams in the middle and that's where we're at, trying to get better.
