Are the Bengals the only team in the NFL that has the easy schedule in the rotation? No. They all do. The Bengals took advantage of it this year. So did the Steelers, playing the exact same schedule and beating, largely, the exact same teams. In 2010, the Reds took advantage of a sad-sack division by beating up on the bottom dwellers all season. Should they apologize?
The declinist, defeatist attitude ... soooooooooo Cincinnati.
