    Re: Bengals Predictions for 2008

    I look at it this way. The bengals are better this year than last year. Just an opinion but they have looked awful in the preseason. Last season the Bengals lost these games which they very easily could have won. Cleveland, Seattle, Kansas City, Buffalo, Arizona, and San Fran. They could have won 6 more games last year than they did, and it really isn't a stretch to think a play or two plays in these games go a different way and the Bengals were a playoff team.

    The Bengals have become a whipping boy of the national media, the source of negativity from everyone in this city, and the laughing stock of football. Chad is back playing for a contract. Carson is thought of as a top flight QB. The D should be better. I like Rivers and the secondary this season. Odem should be an upgrade on the pass rush over Smith.

    I think this team will compete to win the AFC North and Wild Card. A 9-7 team may win the AFC north this season. You can never tell how strong a schedule will be until the season gets underway. In 05 the schedule was supposed to be a killer but it ended up fairly easy. I think this team can win anywhere between 7-11 games. I hope for the higher figure but if things start to go bad it could very easily turn into a bad season.

    I think my prediction of 6 wins was way too optimistic after watching them for a half. I think 4-12 or 3-13 is more realistic.

    Heck, I think the Ravens are going to be lucky to win 5 games this year.

    That was one horrible display, no question about it. And as optimistic as I once was I am now that pessimistic. Truly awful and although I expect them to improve over the course of the season so does the competition. I now expect to be picking top 10 again.

    Looks like I need to kickstart my old mantra of Bratkowski must go at the very least. Way too predictable and again not enough running the ball which looked solid at times. Although again Ghiacuic isn't much of a run blocking center either. So why do we continue to try to run it up the gut pretty much exclusively with Ghiacuics lack of push and 2 RB's better suited to outside running.

    As usual, I'm an idiot. 7-9.... HA!

    I was the one person who predicted 11 wins. The Reds are going to win 100+ games next year, btw.

    I'm a moron.

    I will say this is the last time this'll happen on my part. After 20ish years of being a fan (I'm 27 years old), I think they've finally done me in. I'll still watch on Sundays (at least have the games on in the background), but they are going to have to actually luck into another 2005 or hire a GM + more scouts before I bother caring again.

    Thanks Mike Brown!

    Here's my prediction: Jeremi Johnson will not have a good rating in future versions of Madden.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    You're not a moron Redsfaithful. You're a fan. The real moron is Mike Brown. You've been a fan all of your life. Mike has been a priviledged, sheltered waste of DNA all of his life. You're disappointed, maybe even broken-hearted. Mike is happy as he counts his money, maybe even gleeful.

    I'll take a stadium full of 'you' before I ever wish Mike Brown 'Merry Christmas'.
