Cincinnati Bengals: A Season of Disappointment
What a disappointing season by the Cincinnati Bengals. After winning their first game of the season against rival Baltimore, the Bengals went on to lose 5 of their next 6. They are essentially out of the playoffs and are headed to San Francisco for a rare Saturday matchup, with a dismal 5-8 record. On paper, this team has one of the best offenses in the league, with Carson Palmer at the helm, perrenial 1000 yd rusher in Rudi Johnson, and the deadliest 1-2 wide receiver combo after those Colts in Chad Johnson and Houshmanzadeh. No defense, sure that’s a part of it. But this team is supposed to outscore their opponents. No chemistry, that’s what I call it. Too many bad apples in this bunch. Too many convicts. Too many problems. There is a reason why this team has become the laughing stock of the league. Maybe it’s time to trade Ocho Cinco. Sure there will be less touchdown dances to look forward to. But I’ll trade a dance for a victory anyday. What could go worse for this team? How about losing to a winless Miami Dolphins team on the last week of the season. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
