Wow, even the BAC sippin' on some Kool-Aid.

I'll take 7-9, and I'd put some $$$ on the fact that they won't have a winning record, if anyone is foolish enough to take me up on it.

Rolling more like crawling into Bye Week

2-5 at the Bye Week doesn't not conclude to a good season.

I don't know why--but I have the Bungles losing at least one of those Browns Games.

BTW--the Browns need to consider starting McCoy again. The other guy is f*cking atrocious. I saw their coach predictably call a screen pass. Nobody bought into it--and he didn't even try to sell the fake--but still threw the pass to the RB anyways. Just a bad, bad, bad, bad decision. If you don't know to throw that ball into the stands, then you have no business taking snaps. Rookie or no--dude should know sh*t like that already.

The Browns start that dude, then they will be lucky to win 2 games all year.

Back to back playoffs? Naw, haven't done that in over thirty years. Let down after last year (if there is such a thing as a let down after 9-7).

7-9

7-9

I have an upset losses vs Jacksonville and at Cleveland but upset wins over the Broncos at PBS and over Ravens in true "Dead Cat Bounce" form Week 17. Their second half schedule is really tough...their room for error is tight unless they upset teams like Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Dallas, Philly, and the Giants. If they sweep the AFC West that would help (I have them going 3-1 with a loss at San Diego, although I think that you can throw those four games in a hat and better predict the results...that division is crazy and so are the Bungs). Or, if the Steelers or Ravens stink and that makes more of those games winnable...both teams are old and are a few injuries away from imploding.

7-9 or 8-8 seems about right for expectations. If they make the playoffs, they will need 2009 luck and/or coaching or 2011 coaching and wins in seemingly every winnable game.6-10 would be a disappointment unless Dalton takes a big step back, in which suddenly the Bungs become underdogs against all four AFC West teams and possibly against Cleveland. Still, a worst case scenario seems like 3-13 or 4-12, but I think that they will hover around .500 all season long.

How to approach this without the born-and-bred cynicism....

I guess there's been some incremental change. A few more scouts, less knuckleheads...you don't overcome decades of organizational ineptitude overnight. sigh

Looking at it without the homer lenses or without the MBS lenses, I see:

- a team that showed promise last year but also a team that feasted on a weak schedule
- a Baltimore Ravens defense that is significantly aging and lost their significant weapon to injury
- a Steelers team that almost certainly will win the division if it stays healthy
- a Bengals team that has a beast of a #1 WR and a SIGNIFICANTLY underrated TE, but also
- a Bengals team that BADLY needs a #2 receiver to take the offense to the next level and uncertainty
of performance level at the running back position
- a Bengals team with a defense that is quietly very good but certainly not elite

So....with that in mind:

at Baltimore - L (Baltimore comes in pissed off opening week like last year)
Cleveland - W (if this ends up being a L instead...buckle up, it's gonna be a long year)
at Washington - W (rookie QB still working out the kinks)
at Jacksonville - W (JAX looks terrible and if MJD doesn't report, it'll be even worse)
Miami - W (without Marshall, I think Miami's offense will be significantly worse)
at Cleveland - W (they can't not take both games from CLE two years running........right? *crickets*)
Pittsburgh - L (team comes in with a 5-1 record and huffing and puffing and plays too overeager)
Denver - L (I actually don't think Denver's going to be much good but I just can't pick the Bengals to beat Peyton...even post-surgery on a lesser team)
NY Giants - L (No shame in losing this game...could be a hard fought one and the Giants have their off weeks, just won't bet on this being one of them)
at Kansas City - W ("stop the bleeding" game)
Oakland - W (team shows up motivated to validate Andy as the post-Carson leader)
at San Diego - L (I don't like the Bengals on the West Coast in December)
Dallas - L (Dallas in December is different from Dallas any other time of year)
at Philadelphia - L (could switch to W if Reid puts his ******* hat on and doesn't remember that his biggest weapon isn't Vick or Jackson but Desean McCoy)
at Pittsburgh - L (other "no shame in losing" game...except with far larger consequences)
Baltimore - W (I actually predict Baltimore underachieving this year and being checked out by the last week)

Mikey's wet dream fulfilled at 8-8...although I see at least three opportunities there to catch a team "napping" to make it 9-7.

I haven't posted here in awhile and I haven't seen this pic on here either, It had to change.

I will have to think about my prediction before I actually make one.

I don't really feel like it's even worth my time to do a game-by-game analysis for this team, but I'm pretty much on board w BMN's predictions. Good start against a weak schedule, everyone proclaims the next big thing and the league and the brownHole get what they want: A bunch of sellouts for the rest of the season.

Then, utter ruin when we have to face teams that are actually good.

The only caveat I'd add is that I also see 3 chances where the Bungs could be caught napping too, dropping the team to 5 or 6 wins. I'll stick w my prediction of 7 wins.

Whit, thanks for that.

3-13 Marvin gets canned and the whole clown brown vicious cycle starts anew.I can hear
the clown screaming "I told you so" already.The clown wont retire till he takes the big dirt nap
and the bumblers go another 20 years without winning a playoff game.Marvin should have been fired
100x's alrready and would have been in any other NFL city where mediocrity isnt accepted

Fire Marvin? Never.

Signing up with Mikey is like working for the mob. Once you are in, you can't get out. Just ask Carson.

I think that the only reason the Bungs did well last year was because of new blood at key positions. I think after a year of smelling Mikey poo they have begun the inevitable journey of "Bungalization". As a result, I predict an 8-8 season, and then down hill from there.

I tend to agree...3-13 only puts him on the "Hot Seat", as disappointing as that kind of record would be.

To that above point, it p1sses me off to no end when ESPN recognizes the Bengals as a real NFL franchise and includes them in said arguments (i.e. putting him on the "Hot Seat" after 2008 and 2010 for the same reason that Todd Haley or Norv Turner or Lovie Smith always end up on this list).

Just this week Marcellus Wiley put them in the playoffs and the Steelers and Broncos out of the playoffs. What a freaking joke! At least if you're going to put the Bungs in, base it off of "this team could surprise again" or "this team has more talent than you may assume," not "they are younger than the Steelers and offer more on both sides of the ball." What a f*cking joke ESPN is. They did this to us in 2006 and 2010, basically making the Bengals the sexy division champion and Superbowl pick based off of the aberrations the year before!

I have one question for you:

HOW?????????

Good lord. I don't know what you're seeing--but your starting QB is throwing for around 50% for the entire preseason--and without a running game.

YOU'RE SCREWED IF I'M SEEING THAT RIGHT.

Even the Browns are going to give the Bungles a game twice.

I've been working a lot lately and haven't even had time to watch a snippet of preseason. But....it's hard for a non-ovis fan to not ignore history.

The bungs will look much different on the O-Line from a few years ago and drastically different at WR and TE than two years ago. That at least suggests they recognized their scandalous talent gap. They had too many non NFL-starting players at far too many of those positions.

Will the drastic changes bring drastic improvement? I can't see it getting any worse than the laughing stock standard of years past. But history suggests it's not going to get that much better either. Overachievement can't merely happen by throwing a switch year in and year out.

I'll go with the marginal improvement analysis. The bungs were 5-win talent a couple years ago. I'm predicting 7 wins. If Marvin bring Mikey's joke of an organization to 10 wins again, he should once again run away with Coach of the Year honors.

Why does ESPN build up the Bung? It is because they are apart of the NFL. It's kinda like a car manufacturer offerring zero percentage interest rates on cars that don't sell well but charging high interest rates on cars everyone enjoys riding in.

Trust me, they are not stupid enough to believe their own mantra.
