Just a friendly reminder........ I don't hate to say ...........I TOLD YOU SO ! ! !

This is a Re-print of an article I wrote before the season started. Everything's happening as I said it would.
And even though the Season is young, Believe me when I tell you "THE KEY."....... This team is to young to realize that they're not supposed to succeed and if they stay "HEALTHY",   We will be in the "Playoffs" !!!

Of course all the "Nay-Sayers"  ie; negative "non-believer"  so called "Bengal Fans" will point to .............................

"They haven't played any strong teams yet" ......... Let me now remind you that the "Bengals" are notorious for playing to the "Level" of their opponents and by the time we are 6-2 (after beating the Hawk's & Titan's) we will have had a 1/2 season of football and a whole lot of confidence under our belts, not to mention and insatiable hunger to silence all the Critics (some of which are non-believer Bengal fans) and "Play-Up" to the Steelers and Ravens and BEAT THEM !! .............RECORD 8-2 ! ...........We then have 6 games left........Clevland (a 'let-down' loss)  .......@ Pitt  (a loss)  ..........Houston @ home in a game w/huge "wild-card" implications (a win) ......@ St.louis (a win).........Arizona @ home (a win on a chilly Christmas Eve far from the Arizona desert) 

And the Finale on "New Years Day"  A battle for the AFC NORTH DIVISION CROWN.............@ home against the     Ravens (???)                 Loser gets the "Wild-Card"                 Remember...........You Heard it here first !

For all the "NAY-SAYERS" out there who think that I've had to much Kool-Aid to drink,..............I'll have to Re-print this article again when we are in the Playoffs !!

Never the less............. I TOLD YOU SO !!                PS............ As for the Over/Under of 5.5 wins......I TOLD YOU SO !! 

PS.....................Once we're 8-2, They'll need your "Support" in the "JUNGLE"  To see them through to the "Playoffs"    So start filling up the Stadium and lets give our "Never Say Die" Bengals the support they deserve at that point.

PSS..................As for our QB (Dalton)..................  I TOLD YOU SO !!

PSSS...............As for our Defense......................  I TOLD YOU SO !!

PSSSS.............To  "JCOMPTON 41" ........................ I TOLD YOU SO !!  ( My T-Shirt size is xxxl).

"MANAGE" + "RUN" + "PLAY- ACTION" = "WIDE OPEN LOOKS" Story-edit

Tiny by gratefulmax on

Hey Bengal Nation,  I am so sick of hearing about "Rebuilding Year"  I am a "BENGAL SUPER FAN" trapped in South Florida. I consider myself a very rational person and I don't (by any means) think I am being Overly Optimistic when I Predict a very good season.  Vegas say's Over/Under on BENGALS wins is 5.5?   In the words of  "Ocho" CHILD PLEASE!!    

It has been mentioned very perceptively (Biggie 22) that we have somewhat of an element of surprise this season.The lack of "Film" on "Andy Dalton" along with a newly installed "Offense" (that Dalton is very familiar with) should immediately give us "A new look" which Teams will have to respect (No more Predictable Bengals).

My Formula is a Simple one............All "Dalton" has to do is "Manage" the game by handing off to "Cedrick Benson" 25 to 30 times per game.  As teams are forced to bring 8 in "The Box" ............"Play-Action" WILL create some opportune "Wide Open Looks" for "Dalton" which he should easily be able to take advantage of. He doesn't even have to be super-accurate with the likes of  Acrobatic pass catchers  "Jerome Simpson"  and  "A.J. Green".  Not since the Ringling Bros. "Flying Wallendas"  have I been so exited to see a "Duo" with their kind of ability. Mix-in "Jordan Shipley" ,  "Andre Caldwell" ,  "Quan Cosby" ,  "Jermaine Greasham" , "Bo Scaiff" and "Chase Coffman" and I'm sure you begin to "Get the Picture".   

From what his College and Pro Coaches have said about him,"Dalton" is a very poised and mature leader who all he did at "TCU" was Win, Win, Win. They have also noticed that he has that innate ability to not only focus on his job (But like a good Field General)  is aware enough to know where everyone else is supposed to line up.

Once he "Get's" the "Speed of the game" down, I believe he is mature enough (doesn't generally make the same mistake twice) to keep "Rookie Mistakes" to a minimum.

Once Again.......   I believe "Pounding" the ball into the line, combined with "Play-Action" to our very talented core of Recievers and Tight-ends is the absolute best course of action for this upcoming season. Realistically...............All we really have to do every game is go from our 20 to their 30 (50 yards). By "Pounding"  "Dinking + Dunking" and looking for those 3 to 4 "Wide Open Looks" that he'll get per game.  Once we're at the 30, if we stall on 3rd down......."Nugent" can kick'em 47 yards "all day long".

As for our Defense?..............It is actually vastly improved in my opinion. "Ray" at his natural position flanked by veteran and speedy backers "Lawson & Howard" . Hall & Clements on the corners. The Nelson's, Gibril and Sands roaming center field and guys coming into their own like.............Brandon Johnson, Carlos Dunlap, Michael Johnson, Peko, Fanene, Rucker, Rivers etc. And well again, you "get the picture" We should only be an improvement over last years squad which was decimated (badly) by injuries. If this unit can stay healthy, The "Zim" will once again have a "Top Ten" Defense.  

It seems like a simple formula doesn't it?  You're probably saying to yourself ....."Yeah, but these are the Bungals"  Well Guess what  Bengaldom?      I promise...............This year WILL BE DIFFERENT!! 

As for That Over/Under on BENGALS wins @ 5.5...............I'm takin' the OVER!   But what else would you expect from a very rational, not  to overly optimistic, "Super Bengal Fan"
