Honestly, I'm at a loss for words. What is it? Did we have too high expectations for a team that's just not good? Is it really Dusty whom many of us weren't thrilled with in the first place? Are they too young of a team right now to have consistency?

Sure, there's been some stupid contracts handed out and some bad decisions being made, but they shouldn't be playing this bad.

But seriously, watching GameCast here at work and checking ESPNews every evening when I can, I always have hope of at least a decent game or a win. I should know better by now.

I've been a Bengals fan all of my life. You would think I would be used to rooting for losing franchises. But it still stings.

Last question. Does this team even care?
