That's how I saw it as well.
The Bengals obviously are good enough to defeat anybody, but also have enough holes on defense to make it unlikely that they can have a long playoff run. They are probably a year or two away from a serious Super Bowl run; give Marvin Lewis time to construct a defense and the Bengals may truly be a monster.
By the way, Marvin couldn't provide the Reds with some advice, could he?
