If Bengals fans are anything, we're a prideful bunch. Sure. We can demean and make fun of our own team all we want, but we're allowed that luxury. Another base of fans talking ill about us or our our boys, and we'll bark like nasty dogs spitting acidic blood from our foaming mouths. And we know Baltimore Beatdown enough that they're just point out the fairly obvious. The Bengals are probably going to stink this year.
If the prognostication becomes reality, then this must come as a relief to the Baltimore Ravens, who have lost eight of the previous 12 meetings against the Cincinnati Bengals. During Cincinnati's 4-12 season last year, one came against the Ravens in a game that surely stalled Joe Flacco's chances as a first-time Hall of Fame ballot. Otherwise, as he'll tell you straight up, he's a damn good quarterback.
Bengals fans might not have much this year to root for. There's a lot of issues facing this team which forces us to often tune out the rest of the NFL until our own home gets in order. But you can be assured that while we have the juice left, we'll have a little fun with our Ravens friends. At least that'll keep things fun for a season in which BBD justifiably projects, could lead into the division basement.
