Even if they were to miraculously sweep the divison again, I would pick them to lose in the playoffs again and go 6-10 the following year.
    Pretty much agree with this, but I think the Bengals can only play secure football for only so long, and they will never get past the one and done stage unless they get better weapons for Dalton, to compliment AJ Green, and improve their pass protection, oh and btw a real every down back wouldn't hurt either.

    Overall I think Dalton will turn into a good/solid starting QB in the NFL, if we go by his rookie season, but he is the type of QB that will need to have a solid defense, to go along with a decent run game and good receivers to succeed in the league. He doesn't have the arm Flacco or Roethlisbeger has, not very good throwing it down field and isn't blessed with the greatest amount of pocket presence. He is pretty mobile and will evade sacks, but needs to step into the pocket with more poise.

    They have a quarterback who won about eight games last year as I recall. He lost both times to the Steelers and both times to the Ravens. The Bengals are the third best team in the Division and likely to remain there for a long time (until either Ben or Joe is no longer in the Division). The Ravens and Steelers own the Division - it just seems to be a toss up from year to year as to which one wins the Division and which one is the wild card.

    I think either team would still be better without either Ben or Joe tbh, if you put an average QB on either team they'd still probably be the two best teams in the division.

    I'm sure they'll choose wisely. The Bengals aren't a bad drafting team. They've had some pretty solid drafts. They just let their core players go because they won't pay them.

    Just thought of only 6 Bengals could probably be in the Ravens starting team.

    Andrew Whitworth, AJ Green, Jermaine Gresheme, Peko, Dunlap (Arguable with McPhee emerging), and Leon Hall.

    Oh yeah probably Mike Nugent too.

    That's what I thought as well.
    Didn't even read the whole piece as it struck me more and more of a fans opinion the more I read it.

    Until the Bengals prove it with any level of consistency, then no, they can not be viewed as the best team in this division.

    Merely having a lot of young talent that squeaked into the playoffs after losing all four games to the two teams this blogger is trying to claim the Bengals are now better then, does not elevate you in status above those same two teams.

    Are they in position to be competitive and attempt to over take those teams, certainly, but once again, prove it.

    The Ravens & Steelers have both proven over the course of time to remain competitive and consistent in either winning this division, and or advancing deep into the post season.
    In the Steelers case (sadly in Ravens' fans eyes) have won Superbowls.
    Both have had valuable player losses over the years only to prove that their newer acquisitions can come in and fill those roles with little to no drop off.

    You don't surpass that kind of proven consistent track record simply by stock piling good talent due to having continued high draft picks and occasionally finding your way into the playoffs to be dismissed rapidly.

    This seems like a fun game, let me try.

    Are dogs the world's smartest animal?

    Will the Orioles win 100 games this season?

    Besides that the article lacks depth, any type of coherent research and was probably thrown together in maybe 10 minutes. Literally.

    I would like the 30 seconds of my life it took me to read it back please.

    Oh and the Bungles are not the best team in the AFC North.


    I think I'm going to write a blog about why the Ravens are the best team in the AFC North and better than the Bengals, then go register on a Bengals forum and hawk it with my first post. Should be a hoot.....

    Re: Are the bengals the best team in the afc north?

    Honestly I'm more worried about the Bengals giving us a run at the division more so than the Steelers. They were 7th in defense last year with subpar secondary play. Add in a Kirkpatrick, or one of the other top DB's in the first and that just improved the postion.

    Their offense was mediocre, they lost Simpson but figure they add a Floyd, or Hill or whomever is on their board and you don't have much of a loss there. They added BGE in the running game and prob need to look at another in the draft.

    All in all it's going to fall on the Ginger's shoulders. Is he going to progress, or is he what he is? He didn't have the best grades coming out of the draft and everything was saying mediocre.
