We don't turn the ball over and we force a lot of turnovers (leading the league in turnover ratio by a mile)...I think if we can keep doing that we will have a chance, but no question the defensive line has to improve.

i definitely agree with that. all these turnovers give the bengals offense great field position and definitely put points on the board. until 3 weeks ago the steelers came up with a timely turnover either to prevent points or gain them every week leading to lots of wins. (disgusting to think they used to be 7-2) the flipside is the chiefs team that rode into youre house at 9-0. their defense was great that year (atleast they led my team, and fantasy league in scoring that year) but they went on to get dismantled by the colts in the playoffs. at that point t. green and t. gonzalez were amongst the league leaders and their rb was setting records. so while i appreciate the things the bengals defense has going for it im not gonna drink the cool-aid just yet.

Hey The Bengals even if they get into the playoffs. At This Point, NO ONE IS GONNA STOP THE COLTS! Unless You Trust us to do the job. And Even That is a major wish.

Let me start by saying that the Bolts and the Bengals are two teams that I actually like other than my beloved Patriots.

Let me finish by saying that you must be on the hard stuff if you think that the Patriots have one of the worst D's in the league if you factor out injuries - the Pats D always gets plenty of credit for our 3 SB wins - last couple of years we could do it all - stop the run and pressure the passer.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I think we actually match up well against the bengals even in a shootout.

We just need New England to step up and spank thier son in the playoffs (the colts) if they make it that far....Then it will be smooth sailing for us.

lmao! that remains to be seen. especially with the loss of crennell. they did real well against carolina before all the injuries didnt they? i think the diminished use of steroids in light of the bruschi tradgedy and the unconditionned, over complacent attitude has hurt them more than injuries. after all they still got brady and belichick dont they?.

what you need to do is win atleast 2 games in the next 4 weeks and hope you take care of business the 1st playoff game and then start worrying about that shit. damn i hope your young inexperienced players are approaching this with the same attitude as the fans are.

Me too! I think it will take their D 3 years to get to our level. And i'd be willing to bet that our D will go a long time without playing that crappy again.

^Let's certainly hope the D doesn't play as crappy as it did last week...they can't afford anymore crappy games. We need to beat the Bears to salvage any kind of respect, IMO.

As for the Bengals, I think they got lucky last game. They caught the Steelers in what seems to be a streak of very low confidence and took advantage of it, in contrast to the first meeting this year when Pittsburgh had the momentum and basically wiped them out. And then Ben basically giftwrapped that victory for them with those dumb interceptions, so I wouldn't credit those picks to the Cincinnati defense. Ben made the mistake, and while I guess we have to forgive him, it was sort of his fault.

I still believe the Steelers are the team to beat in the AFC North. Ben just needs to get back into a rhythm to start playing like he used to, and luckily there are still 4 games left for him to get into that rhythm. The rest of the team needs to help him out though. I think we've been putting too much pressure on Ben to pull a win out of his ass.

Don't forget the original team with the High powered offense and no defense...The Colts...They made the playoffs every year and could never get to a Super Bowl.

They have now fixed their Defense and now maybe thier year.

Offense wins games...Defense wins Championships
