The Bengals don't just hilariously misspell their own player's names, they also fail in even more spectacular ways! Let's take a walk through the discarded remains of the 2010 Cincinnati Bengals after their historic collapse!
- Guaranteed 18th non-winning season in last 20 years.
- Lost 12 of last 15 games.
- From Reedy: This is the 11th losing streak in team history of seven straight or more and the ninth since 1991.
- "If the season ended today, the Bengals would have the third pick in the draft. Last year at this time they were the third seed in the AFC. Now, they have the worst record in the conference...."
- Bengals will likely be underdogs in their remaining 6 games As Reedy wrote: "The Bengals have never gone winless in October AND November in the same season. Guess what? It looks like it has a very good chance of happening."
- Marvin is officially dead man walking.
- TO: Welcome to Bengals Nation! After the game, TO said what we all know. No more "we need to play all 4 quarters" or "A few big plays here or there and we would be right back in it. Nope, he said ""Let me look you in the eyes and emphasize - we are terrible. Let me emphasize terrible. We find ways to lose. We may go two and whatever. Fourteen."
- Bengals are guaranteed to start next season, their 12th in PBS, without a playoff win. How do you calculate that Return on Investment on a $600M stadium?
So the question, like most years, is where do we go from here? As fans, have you finally had enough? Do you finally see that in a league with the parity of the NFL, you are going to have flash in the pan seasons like 2005 and 2009, but without the foundation of a strong front office, coaching, training, scouts, etc, you will ALWAYS regress to the bottom? To paraphrase Doc, does Mike Brown want to win? Yes, much like I want to win the lottery or get cozy with a Victoria's Secret. It might happen, but its all luck.
If you want to see the Bengals win football games, it is time for fans to stop complaining and hoping, and to stop supporting this team financially. Until then, the Browns have no incentive to change.
