A tale of two Ohio teams


Kudos to my Bengals for their hard work.  Dang they looked sweet today.  Dalton was very poised and mature.  They are much better then the 2009 team, mainly because they play hard for each other, and their is no drama queens on this squad.  Just a tough nosed blue collar team.  Despite being called the "worse team in the nfl" by the media and critics in the preseason, this team is playing like vets hungry for wins, but much more.  This is a tale of a team hungry for respect, and for redemption.  At 6-2, the Bengals are the hottest team in the NFL, with their future in their grasp. 

Holmgren was building North Ohio's team to beat for the next decade.  Many top picks were spent on defense, with several free agents brought in to add depth to this new and upcoming team.   After a strong pre-season showing though,  the Colt lead Browns are looking more like the Browns from the Butch Davis era.  Sloppy tackling, dropped passes, and runs that barely make it back to the line of scrimmage, this is the worse 3 win team in the NFL.  Colt isn't terrible by any means, but isn't consistent.  While Holmgren wasted top picks on a defensive line that is ranked 26# against the run, he has neglected the offense which is terrible.  Colt has no recieving corps other then rookie Little, and even the OL (the team's only bright spot of recent yrs) is looking pathetic. 

Holmgren was the hired gun paid by Cleveland to turn around the team and get them to the playoffs.  Now the team seems worse off then when he arrived and some are questioning if Holmgren really is the right guy for the job. And despite all of the critism Marvin Lewis has endured, he finally has a team that mirrors what he wants.  Two young teams, one possibly playoff bound, and the other bound for yet another rebuilding year.....
