Default Reality Check

I keep hearing Bengal Fans talking about their "High Octane Offense"...and how they are ready to take the "next step" this upcoming season. Well, lets look at some revealing stats...the TRUTH is that the Bengals are deficient in SEVERAL areas.
The thing that is truly amazing is that when you compare their stats to ours...You have to shake your head at some of the sportwriters who act like they are an up-and-coming team.
Our stats are better than theirs in most areas...yet pungents unable or unwilling to do their homework overrate the Bungals and talk about us possibly going 7-9.
SOOOO....here are the stats and my prediction BASED on those stats: We will make it to the playoffs this year and the Bengals will disappoint and reclaim their basement room in the celler of the League.


Their Total offense was ranked BEHIND the Steelers...and their running game was ranked #26....Their defense was ranked #30 overall..with a pass defense ranked #31. Their Punt return was ranked #29....Their Kickoff return ranked #29....third down conversion rate was ranked #25

What this shows me is with:
A) an anemic running game
B) a poor third down conversion
C) an awful defense
D) poor special teams....

the Bengals have NO CHANCE to be more than..well....the Bengals. Keep in mind, this is all in the year when the Bengals were considered better than they have been for years.

Now take into consideration that the Bengals will possibly start this season without a legit third reciever...an offensive line that has lost their best lineman....An aging D-line... three LB's that have never played together....a secondary with a very poor strong safety and two CB's with a comined ONE year experience....

There are the facts...YOU do the math.

!00% valid points, LLT. I just love watching the fans go up and down, throwing away their jerseys and then digging them out of the garbage every other week.

Try living in Cinci and convinvcing a Bung fan of any of that. The glare off Carson Palmers Heisman Trophy has them blinded to what the rest of the team looks like. They just look at you and say "Is Ben still riding a motorcycle?"

Yeah, we've settled on the field twice now in the last two seasons -- ended your season both times.

If we do settle this on the field and beat you down in both games, will you Bungles fans finally admit that the Bungles suck?

Good post LLT and as the old saying goes - stats don't lie.

Ya settling on the field doesnt really go in the bengals favor does it. During important games when do the bengals ever beat the steeler.....NONE

we had nothing to play for and u hadevery thing and we still win. HA

Those are from last year exxactly because %99 of bengals fans think there team was better than the stelers last year. SUddenly you say ya the past does matter well the past doesnt matter to you cause you havent won sh!# in the past

So the first game against the Bengals didn't matter to you? News flash, but if you had won that first game you guys would've made the playoffs.
