Their losses coming to Indy, Steelers (split), and Jacksonville. So far so good, though they may get a fight/loss in KC at season's end due to the fact the game wouldn't matter and Lewis may pull players for the post-season.
But stating that their defense is pretty atrocious and may prove to be their downfall in the postseason is simply observing and pointing out the obvious....not saying anyone WANTS or HOPES this happens because they want the Bengals to fail.
I'm a Browns fans, yet I root for the Bengals because I'm a loyal Ohioan. With the exception of OSU as of late, this state has long periods without winners/champions.
You don't have to root for 'em, you're a Browns fan.
You should relish jumping on Chad Johnson for making one of his Muhammed Ali quotes, and you should be feeling a little envious, you're a Browns fan for crying out loud.
I don't expect you to be in the Bengals' corner.
You should probably bad mouth them more than you do.
