Panic Attack

Hey Bengals Fans:  Chill!  It was one game.  Our team is 4-2 on the season.  We've beat the Steelers, Ravens, Browns, and Packers (and should have beat the 5-0 Broncos).  I know we are jumpy fans... years and years of losing will do that to you, but this is a very good team.  Its like we're lab rats who have been shocked over and over by a piece of cheese thats attached to a battery... we just don't know how to enjoy cheese when its not hooked up. Remember how the Bills almost beat the Patriots in the beginning of the year  (or how the Jets did)?  How are those teams doing lately?  The fact is the Texans are Very Good Offensively and have had our number the past two years.  Sure, losing Odom stings me like a fissure in my ass, but isn't that exactly why we drafted Michael Johnson, to get pressure on the QB?  And yes, Carson and our offense have not been as sharp as they have in years past, but look at Peyton Manning last year.  How did his team start and how did they finish?  As you may recall, Peyton, with his knee injury, and the Colts stumbled out of the gates.

Carson is not Manning but what I'm saying is the offense needs time to get into rhythm.  Also, Johnson brings a whole new element of speed, as opposed to power, to our D line. Who knows, that could make it better. 

My point is that you can't take one game and draw broad conclusions.  Our body of work this year tells us that this is a very good team that has room for improvement in certain areas (TE... cough cough put in Coffman).  So yes, the next three games are all tough and will be another test of where we are at as a team.  But based on what I've seen, I'm confidant we'll get back on track and play some good football.

Who Dey?  We Dey Baby!
