As painful as this loss was, maybe it's a goods thing for improving the team

First off, let me ask a question. How many on here other than myself and few other real homers thought the Bengals were realistically going to make a run at the Superbowl, much less win it?? Answer: Very few, if any at all.

It's a new era with this team, and our standards need to be set higher, starting now!! Going forward, it's gotta be a Superbowl or bust mentality with this team!!

I'll finally admit it, this year we had too many holes and too many major injuries for us to overcome to have a shot at winning the Superbowl and if were not going to win it, or at least make it, what's really the advantage of moving on?? As painful as the loss was, it actually puts us in a better position to address some of our holes through the draft.

I think we are now looking at the 17th pick and either the 21rst or 22nd pick of this years draft.

Round 1

# 17 - Trent Richardson/David Decastro or Alfonso Denard, whichever one falls to us, and yes I do beleive one of them will fall to us.

# 22 - Mark Barron (we have to replace Crocker and if they are not going play Mays we need to get someone else in there that are going to be willing to let play - Crocker HAS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Round 2.

Kelechi Osemele if we get DeCastro in the first we take the next best CB with this pick.

Round 3

Running Back, if we get Richardson in the first then we take Guard with this pick and a CB with our 2nd round pick.

Bottom-line is WE HAVE TO ADDRESS - SS, GUARD, CB AND RB, early in the draft or through free agency.

Crocker, Livings, and Ced all have to be upgraded for us to make a run to the Superbowl. CB and WR could both stand to be upgraded as well but they can both also be upgraded by players coming back from injury. I don't care how we do it, draft or free agency, but these 3 players need be replaced before training camp starts next season!!!.
