Default Cowher believes Bengals are for real!

MIAMI - Bill Cowher, the man who predicted the Bengals would be the NFL’s surprise team in 2009, says they won’t be going away any time soon and everybody will know about them this time.

“They’re a solid team; they’ll be back,” Cowher said Tuesday after the CBS news conference here at the Super Bowl. “Marvin (Lewis) does a very good job of keeping them level-headed and I can see them picking up where they left off. It’s a tough team to play. They play good defense with two of the best corners in the National Football League.

"They’ve got some young linebackers. I think offensively with (Cedric) Benson and that offensive line they did a great job with and with Carson (Palmer) still there and they get some more weapons for him on the outside, I think they’ll be fine.”

Cowher, the former Steelers head coach who is expected to be back in coaching next year, is working his first Super Bowl in the CBS Studio. He thought the Bengals had something special brewing when they nearly knocked off the Chargers in San Diego late in the year.

“It was unfortunate they probably played their best game against San Diego and they just couldn’t get it going against the Jets,” he said. “Still, it’s a solid foundation with defense and the running game. It’s amazing the one strength you thought they would have kind of became their weakness with the passing game. But they’re still solid.”

Even though he’s impressed with Cincinnati, Cowher still thinks the Bengals, Steelers or Ravens have no clear-cut edge in the AFC North.

“It’s such a tough division,” Cowher said. “The Steelers lost a lot of close games. Baltimore is still a solid team with a good young quarterback. They’re getting a little bit old on defense, they address their corners, but that’s still a good team and they need to get some receivers for their quarterback, too. I think it’s those three teams.”

The problem with teams knowing about you, is they prepare better for you.

Just like in 2005 when they won the division, teams were more aware of their weapons and were able to defend them better. And in 2006 they went 8-8.

I predict they'll be back in mediocricy by the halfway point of next season!

Yeah if half the team isn't in jail or not playing because of off the field issues. The Bengals will be exposed once again next season.

Coach Cowher 's definitely been smoking something silly lately, a lot. Seriously what's wrong him talk highly about the Steelers opponents, & even trying 2 cover up New England, but not talking a thing about us?

I think Billy Boy wants to be the Bengals next coach! Marvin's contract is up after 2010, and Cowher decided to sit out one more year. Everyone assumes he waiting for the Carolina job, but.....
