    Jets Beat Miami; Bengals All But Eliminated From Playoffs

    Sunday's Bengals-Steelers game will be for bragging rights only. The Jets have just won in Miami and have secured the final AFC playoff spot. Their win Sunday at home against the Raiders is a given. Congratulations to the Bengals, who frittered away what could have been a good season, but instead they'll be sitting at home for the playoffs for the third time in Marvin's four seasons. I don't know about the rest of you, but 8-8 is gettin' kinda old.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    You're telling me you're giving the Raiders a chance?

    The Titans are done now as well, but it doesn't hurt as much when you don't expect it and Vince Young is the QB of the future. Sorry for you Bengal fans as well. They did it to themselves and I know that doesn't make it any easier. They will be back next year.

    It is a misleading thread title, I think my small change is more appropriate

    Let me ask you something Macro, if the Bengals were playing Oakland to get into the playoffs would you still consider it a gimme?

    Point well taken. I changed it.

    Now that I've had my little vent, what changes are needed for next year to get this franchise over the hump? I think a new defensive coordinator is something that most will agree on. Anything else needed?

    As a Dolphins fan, I'm sorry. Nothing upsets me more than losing to the Jets.

    Don't talk about the Dolphins. You must only be allowed to talk about certain teams.

    Ok I'm done.

    The Jets have taken advantage of a total JV schedule. I think the Bengals, with all their problems, go 12-4 at worst with that schedule. It's ridiculous. I'd much rather get beat out by the Jags or Chiefs. At least they played a decent schedule.

    As weird as it is to say, Go Raiders!

    Well, this would be two down in Marvin's tenure for what is supposed to be his specialty if that happens. I think the D is a talent problem first and a coaching problem second, but I'd say that both need significant changes. What it takes to fix both is probably the draft and free agency. I'd say you could argue that all of the LBers need replaced and two of the Dlineman. I'd let Justin Smith walk and find more playing time for Peko. Geathers is finally looking like a pass rushing end, but the rest need upgraded. Leave the offense alone, focus on the D and the offense won't be falling all over themselves to try to win the game, which is what I think the turnovers are coming from. Oh yea, and I'd trade Chris Henry.

    The Bengals have no one to blame but themselves. This franchise took a big step backward this year. There is a "lack of institutional control" to coin a NCAA term. No discipline off the field is a sure sign that there are a lot of problems at the top. I love Marvin. He's done a good job, but all the off the field problems really hurt this team and was a major distraction. The Bengals were not a Super Bowl team this year due to the Palmer injury and various other injuries. However there is no excuse for this team not to make the play-offs. Playoff teams don't lose to Tampa, and give the game to Denver like they did on the 24th.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
