Cincinnati Bengals Appreciation Thread

This thread is something I'm thrilled to start. My dad is from Cincinnati, and for years I grew up watching him miserable over his poor football team, the Bengals. Now, the underdogs are finally headed back to the AFC Championship, and they knocked off the hated Titans to do it. Thank you Cincy for doing what the Colts could not do this year, and for finally making my old man proud!

Are we from the same family? Lol… 

 

I’ve lived in southeastern Indiana my entire life, so it’s naturally Bengals country, especially for the older folks of the community. I was two years old the last time the Bengals were good. My dad has been a fan his entire life, so it was awesome to share this experience with him (virtually of course). 
 

I’ve said it before, I’ll always bleed blue first and foremost, but I can’t help but be excited for Cincinnati’s future. Burrow is a great kid. Lots of heart and he’s a hometown guy (grew up just an hour away from the city). If anyone can finally bring a championship to the city, he’s the one to do it.

I hoped for a Titans win, so that KC, if it survived the Bills, would have to play in Nashville.

Now the Bengals need a miracle, almost like the Jets over the Colts in 1970.

It could help if we could replace Mahomes with Earl Morral next Sunday.

Lol maybe. I am always a Colts fan first and foremost growing up in Indiana, but my dad grew up in Cincy and got me hooked on the Bengals as a kid too, and they were always my other favorite. So happy to see them doing well, especially for my dad.

Yes. We live 45 miles from Paul Brown stadium and many of my family members have been long suffering devoted Bengals Fans. 

 

They are all so excited and it's great to see them enjoying this. 

So I will definitely root for them. 

 

I do expect KC to win, but you never know. 

 

Go Bengals!

Making the Final 4 is gigantic, Cincy is way ahead of schedule.

I’m sure the Bengals would get the Lions share for the SB too.

 

Like others have said, I do doubt if Stafford gets another chance because the Bengals haven’t mortgaged the future as much as the Rams. We’ll see.

It’s almost as if the Rams were assembling a… 

 

Dream Team.

Bengals have shown that once you are in the playoffs, anything can happen. That is why the Colts, if they had played like mid-season form consistently, and got into the playoffs, they could have played with anyone, IMO. Unfortunately the consistency was lacking, starting with the most important position.

    • Pittman and Pascal were reads 1 and 2 90+% of the time it seamed when Frank called pass plays. Pittman more the designed target than anything else. It was pretty rinse repeat. And our pass pro really didn't allow a lot of late read comfort. So not surprising he got the lion's share of targets.  You're welcome.  Like I said all along. I like Pierce a lot, but he was more or less a one trick pony at Cinci, and folks should be cautious with their early expectations. I'd love for him to surprise us all, and start early and be a stud, but that's just not likely. We're asking him to do things now he really never did at Cinci. New plays, new routes, new scheme, blocking responsibility, etc.. At Cinci, he was a star for simply running outside 9s. His route tree outside of that was super limited, and he rarely lined up anywhere else..   In short, he'll need patience. He didn't have a well rounded game like Pittman had coming from a P5 program like USC.  It's actually a bit strange. While that logic might be good for "why not to use Pierce" (he's a rook with very limited route tree experience), it really doesn't explain "why Strachan", or support the theory they are trying to assess Ryan. If they wanted experience or to assess Ryan, I'd think Dulin would be running with the 1s as he had the 3rd most snaps at WR last year, and almost 6ish times that of Strachan.    IMO, it's not a bad thing for Pierce (I didn't expect him to start early). It is likely a good thing for Strachan. A little surprising for Dulin. And probably not a good thing for Patmon. Regardless, it's very very early, so not really a big deal. Just interesting out of the gate.    This doesn't make a lot sense. See above.   I personally didn't envision Pierce starting early in the year due to obvious reasons, so not shocking. But I do find it interesting that he's getting work at gunner. Nothing to freak out about, but something to watch.  Yup. And lacks route running experience. 
    • I hope Campbell plays all year and is a great playmaker. I also hope shines plays in the slot and we run 4 wide every now and then. Or just push Campbell outside and let him still make plays. To many options is better than not enough. 
    • Pierce could be working as gunner to make sure he active on game day. If you remember last year when Mike as inactive frank said it came down to him not being able to contribute on teams
    • Slot corner and outside corner are two different positions with about 100% value difference.   If Moore thinks he’s worth outside money he’s friggin delusional.
    • This is No news.  None at all.  Dude doesn’t know the plays yet man.
