Overenthusiastic... sorta

Hey Who Dey Fans,

While running through the hallways of my apartment complex with my shirt off this afternoon screaming "who dey baby, WHOOOOOOAAAAA!!!!" and chest-bumping my brother, I thought, "maybe we're being a bit too enthusiastic here."

This Sunday the Bengals played awful football through three.  We were smoked up and down the field both on O and D.  Palmer was missing throws and the D line was getting dominated by Willie Parker and Co.  We got torched by some guy named Mike Wallace and some other guy named Hines Ward.  We couldn't touch Big Ben for pretty much the entire game... and this is our "Super Bowl Team?"  After a sensational pick return (which can really be attributed to Santonio Holmes) our long snapper for the second time this year sailed one over Kevin Hubers Head keep it at 20-9.

And make no mistake, its not just the "Behind the Steel Curtain" blog that is calling the Cincinnati Bengals mediocre.  Writers everywhere will be chalking this one up to a Steelers loss, not a Bengals win.  But here's the thing, it was a Bengals win... wasn't it?

The Bengals dominated the fourth quarter, totally turning the game around.  Cedric Benson was amazing on those two touchdown drives.  Palmer was nearly perfect.  And  who dominated the Steelers D line in the fourth?  The Bengals O line.  And while Pittsburgh is pissing and moaning about getting two field goals in the red zone... who was it that held them to two field goals?  Oh yea, that was our D.

My point is this.  While this team could easily be 3-0 and this point, we could also easily be 1-2, or even 0-3 after the near debacle at the end of the packers game.  This team is good, but can't focus on Super Bowl aspirations after a week 3 win.  We have to get better every week and for now, lets just concentrate on beating the Browns.

Who Dey?  Dey da Bengals!!!
