    I would guess 8-8 for their record next year. The absolute most wins I could see out of that schedule woule be 9 and it could be a very ugly season if the defense does not improve.

    I do not see us beating Cleveland and Baltimore twice, and being swept by the Steelers is a possibility.

    Baltimore has struck me as an every other year team. One year they look like Super Bowl contenders, the next they fall flat on their face. Depending on the QB, I could see them making a move.

    With our defense and the brutality of this schedule a top 5 pick in next years draft and a new head coach could be a possibility.

    Chiefs vs. Bengals for the third year in a row. That means I'll get to watch at least one Bengals game.

    At first glance, the Cowboys scheduled looked pretty tough to me. 07 winning % of .523, so it's actually about the middle of the pack.

    The Patriots' schedule is the "easiest" with an 07 win% of .387 like they really needed any help. The Steelers have the toughest with an 07 win% of .598

    The Bengals' is 7th toughest at .547

    I thought it was longer than that. Oh well, first time the Chiefs will be playing at Paul Brown in a while.

    Bengals whole division has tough schedules this year. Steelers is the toughest, Ravens is 5th toughest and the Bengals and Browns are both 7th toughest.

    I think you guys are being way too generous/optimistic with this team. Every game on that schedule is losable (is that a word?). Every one. I see them finishing somewhere between 4-12 and 6-10 in Marvin Lewis' final season in Cincinnati.

    Oh, and the 14 1:00pm games is an indication of what the league expects out of this team, as well.

    The 1990s are definitely back. Did they ever really go away?

    you are right, this is 4th year we play the Kansas City PC's. the last three for sure in KC.
    because at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up--Marty B.

    Sadly, I agree.

    They will need one heck of a draft and another solid signing or two to change my opinion. And they've proven time and time again that they're pretty much incapable of doing either. It's going to be a rough season. This team is a mess.

    Just remember that the rule "Past results do not guarantee future performance" applies in football as well as investing. I can see the Bengals going anywhere from 4-12 to 10-6. There are a number of teams on the schedule that had good seasons in '07, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll have good seasons in '08. I also expect at least two of the teams people would normally expect to be "wins" for the Bengals to be improved to where the Bengals could easily lose those games.

    I would say the best indicator of how the Bengals' season will go will be to see how the defense performs in the first five games. The first three games aren't exactly against offensive powerhouses, so it should give the Bengals' D the opportunity to get its act together early. But then they'll really have to step up against the Cowboys and Browns offenses, both of which I would expect to be quite good. If the Bengals can't stop anyone in the first five games, it's going to put them in a huge hole to start the season, just like the good ole' '90s.

    I have full confidence they'll pick talented players. The question is, will they be able to stay on the field?
