Do you ever get that feeling?

I am hoping that this weekend the Bengals can break through one thing. Not the Bo Jackson curse or the playing down to the opponents level. It is that funny feeling i get in my gut. I had it before we played the Jets in the playoffs, or Pittsburgh a couple weeks ago, or a number of times in important games when we have lost. It is simple and goes like this. We are favored to win, but for some reason, I get this feeling in my stomach (maybe because too many people are saying it is a sure thing or maybe it is because the other side is so quiet) that something bad is going to happen. That is what I hope these Bengals are good enough to overcome this weekend. I can't explain why, but when I get this feeling we end up playing really bad or without any zeal to win. I think they call it coming out flat-footed. Either that or the other side plays way above their level. Whichever it is, it always turns out bad. So I am hoping that this year, this game, my team can tell my gut to shove it and play like we know they can and bring it home. From there, I think we go on to play in the SB. But that is just my opinion, if we get past this week.

I truly do not want to be a downer. It is just that I am really hoping to find a good reason to not believe my gut when it has been right more times than I can count. My head says we got it in the bag. My gut says something will go wrong or at the very least it turns out to be a much more frightening event than I would have hoped for.
