Torrey Inconsistent Smith and a late lucky sack won't be able to save them this time. 24-13 Bengals, Who-Dey! I may even put some dollars down on them in the playoffs, I think they have what it takes. If it wasn't for Andre Johnson getting healthy and my strong appreciation for an underrated T.J. Yates I would without a doubt make a play for the Bengals to make it the Super Bowl. Not that I am super high on this team but the matchups aren't as bad as they seem, the "good" teams in the AFC this year all are beatable. The Texans with a healthy Andre still are the 3rd best team in football IMO.

    Sports fans here are bitter and don't let anything go. Some Reds fans are still bitter about the 1994 strike, even though that's ancient history. And UC fans are still bitter over the way Huggins was forced out. The fact that Huggings himself screwed K-State a year later by ditching them doesn't matter to them.

    The gusts will have an effect on both teams, however I think the Bengals and the West Coast attack they employ will be quicker to adjust to this. Taking away Flacco's deep ball will allow better coverage for Clements and Jones too.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    17-14 bengals. Ravens struggles on the road and bengals will benefit from that. Bengals win with late td from dalton to green.

    Playoff bound are the bengals.

    Cincinnati fans are no more bitter than anyone else. Bitterness goes away once whatever is causing it is replaced with positive memories. I'm not sure Cincy is all that bitter about the 94 strike anymore, but they still haven't had much to be happy about since, other than the next year.

    UC has done nothing since Huggins left, and the Bengals.....well, that's been well documented. They seem bitter because they've had nothing to cheer for in a long time.

    If I know the Bengals, it will be Shayne Graham kicking a game-winning field goal as time expires to give the Ravens a 21-20 victory and knock Cincinnati out of the playoffs..

    True. I don't think I've seen a fanbase yet that doesn't have a lot of self-righteous, bitter and even often hypocritical fans.

    I think the wind will actually help the Bengals. Flacco is inaccurate as it is and may not have Boldin today. The one pass he makes pretty well is the deep ball, but that will be tough with all the wind. Maybe it's just wishful thinking though...

    Most sports fans are bitter until they become arrogant.

    The Bengals almost always lose big-games like today's. It'd be so nice if they can reverse the trend for a change. This fan base deserves it.
