The Bengals aren't better than the Steelers and it's not even close. Do they have a better front 7? Sure. Do they have a better overall WR corp? No, and despite popular belief, AJ Green is their only surehanded receiver. So, stop with the bullshit after one season because frankly, it's getting old seeing it. It's from the same 4 - 5 guys that make every single topic into a 'x team is better than us because of ridiculously ignorant and stupid x reason'. There's enough threads out there that put the Bengals' and Ravens' balls in your mouth - keep the stupidity in those please.
Any given Sunday - The Bengals defense does deserve praise for bringing their A game and winning it in our house for the last playoff spot. Don't underestimate their D - I agree with you about Dalton and Green - they have yet to beat a dominate defense - meaning -they haven't taken the team on their shoulders against an elite D
Funny thing is - it feels like the emergence of Carson Palmer all over again. Don't worry - Bengals ownership will dump them and start all over again because they overestimated their abilities at such an early stage, and won't give them the time to fully develop. They want what the Steelers and now Ravens have done - but they don't want to have to keep losing playoff games and being "battle tested" to do so. The Ravens won and deserved to because they've been put through the playoff fire for 5 straight seasons - it was only a matter of time. The Bengals are capable of taking the next step if they can get a consistent RB and Dalton another WR threat
