Bengals Banter: Wildcard Week

I'm really confused this morning as the national media types are trying to give analysis of last night's laugher in New York. James Walker, in particular, seems to be putting a lot of stock into last night's result. So does John Clayton, who wrote in his AFC Playoff Preview that both teams can use the same game plan next week, reducing the potential impact that a short week of preparation could have. I don't know why any self-respecting football fan would think the Bengals would use the same gameplan, but they pay Clayton the big bucks. ESPN's senior football guy also thinks that the Chargers and Colts will be untouchable, despite both teams' historic struggles in the post-season.

Here are some other interesting stories from around the web.

What was your take on the game last night? Do you think the Bengals gave it their best effort?
