    Call me crazy, but I think this team will exceed expectations and win 6-7 games. My thought is in 2009 they were an 8-8 team that got lucky more often than unlucky and went 10-6. Last year they were a 7-9 team that was more unlucky then lucky and went 5-11. I think they're less talented this year than last year, but the correct base to judge from is a team that "should" have gone 7-9.

    I usually find a way to be optimistic about them no matter how bad they appear. It's not happening this year though. They have a rookie QB. They lost their best defensive player, JJ. They just lost Muckelroy for the year. They have no safeties. No running back. No depth. A weak O-line. Bad coach. Even if everyone stayed healthy, I'm not seeing 5 wins. Wait til the injuries start piling up. It's going to be really, really ugly.

    I like Andy Dalton, but I sure would LOVE to have Andrew Luck. Here's to Brown continuing to sit on his hands.

    That said, I'd really like to understand how this cap situation works. How will the 99% rule be enforced if it's league-wide?

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Dude, that like, costs money and stuff.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    They did get Nate Clements, and rumor is they are about to get Donte Whitner. I really have no idea if those guys are still any good.

    We will welcome you as a Jags fan. I (as former Buckeye) was a Bengals fan forever. But eventually the fact that Mike Brown just doesn't care wears you down.

    Here in Jax you have a team (and an owner) fighting for their survival. An owner that won't even listen to LA when they call. That when they were handing out franchises was told a franchise was his.... all he had to do was turn his back on Jacksonville, and he refused.

    We have a GM that says character matters, and has rid his team of the bad guys.

    Just one thing... you have to like rooting for the underdog.

    I have entertained the thought of becoming a full-time Jags fan. I live an hour from Jax and I like the team, although I despise Del Rio. I go to about 3 games a year. If things get much worse here in Bengaldom I may officially make the switch, [jake gyllenhall] but my heart won't let me quit them [/jake gyllenhall] and I have no faith the team won't eventually move to LA.

    Interesting. I've never been able to adopt a new team in the places I lived. I tried in Minnesota in the late 2000s, but I couldn't become a full-blown fan. I'd love to divorce the Bengals and I have some serious feelings of hostility for Mike Brown, but no matter how hard I try, I just can't do it. I've been in Jax for a little over a year now. Maybe I'll see if they can capture me.

    Jump on over to Tampa Bay -- I've been a Bucs fan my entire life, and I've never been more excited for a team (including the Super Bowl year) than this one.

    Bengals remain my #2 (ironically), but Jags are #1 for me now. Took a while, but about 8 years of one owner not caring and the other fighting with everything he's got to make the switch.

    Re: How bad are the Bengals going to be next year?

    I've given up on trying to not be a Bengals fan. It is what it is at this point, I can't change.

    I'm going to outlive Mike Brown.

    Re: How bad are the Bengals going to be next year?

    If I ever do make "the switch," it would be between Tampa Bay and Jax, with Miami a distant 3rd. Truthfully, though, it will never happen. Like Redsfaithful, I probably couldn't ever do it. And I, as well, barring a disaster, will outlive Mike Brown. What scares the hell out of me is the fact that he could just turn things over to Katie when he does pass. THAT might be the final straw for me.
