Positivity Thread - What to look forward to

Recommended Posts

Oh I'm TOTALLY rooting against them and it's not for draft positioning.  I just hope they fucking lose.
I hope it drives people away in droves.  I hope they have to do ticket giveaways and people still don't show up.
I hope people get so pissed off they bail on their season tickets.

I expect 1-3, with a win against the Raiders, in their last four games of the season.
I'm seriously rooting for them to get drilled by the hapless Raiders as well, closing out the season with an 8 game losing streak.

I'm also "positive" they have given up on Ogbuehi.
Glenn is inactive and instead of calling up Cedric while in dire need, they push Boling out to LT and have Hopkins take the LG spot.
Why is this dude still on the roster ??  Seriously, if they can't activate him in that scenario, he should just be cut.

Did you know that things could be worse?

Yep

Hard to believe, but the player we wanted (if you believe Lapham, and I generally do) instead of Billy Price is actually performing far, far worse than Billy Price

Oh, and Army? Yeah, we need receivers too, but I still want to see Tate and Malone out there more, albeit for my money John Ross and Cody "cant catch a football even if it were made from industrial adhesive" Core can share a cab to the airport with Oogie at this point. Use the r7 pick for that speed receiver you want, I guess

I'm going to watch it.  Pretty much have given up on the season, given up on winning.  Just watching to see the players I like play.  Also, the broadcast could cut away to the stands as an ambulance crew transports a very elderly gentleman from the owner's guest box.  One never knows.

Watched the broncos game coaches film up to the first points scored or so.  It was probably the best I’ve seen the defense play at any given point since the Ravens game at the first of the year.

Vigil was a failure that game. If he represents the quickest player at LB, it was over before the year started.  He’s not quick because he is always hitting the carrier two or three yards deep into the play be it in a running hole or a receiver pattern.  I couldn’t figure out why until I caught him hesitating.  In that game, he was just following around the TE or a motion guy from end to end.  Burfict was keying on the running back. In nearly every play he just couldn’t decide where to go quickly enough so it slowed him down.  Then he invariably would get blown up by the G or C and then finished off by a back.  His greatest fault is his indecision.  Combine that with him not evading interior lineman and you have a terrible LB.

I don’t think it was all because of injury and rust.

The lack of speed displayed by the current starters is just another reason I can’t understand why 3rd rounder Malik Jefferson gets no love. He may not be the greatest, but he should at least make up for some of that with his speed. Confusing as hell why he’s not getting more snaps.

Update on Chargers game - pretty much everyone on our team is injured, Phillip Rivers uses voodoo and other incantations to dominate every game, Marvin’s so locked into his job that he laughs at reporters who ask him about his status, and the eighty dollar color rush Eifert jersey that is on the close out rack for thirty five bucks at the Dick’s in Heath will have to stay there until they drop it to twenty, then I’m buying it.

Get pumped!

Just because we have a little downturn for 27 years, and just because we are starting to use the geologic time scale to keep track of good Bengal teams (Cenozoic Era will probably be over by the time Marvin leaves and we get a good team again), and just because Mike seems to almost gleefully defy conventional wisdom and the wishes of his own fan base, and just because all our good players are hurt, you guys don’t want to get pumped?

Get pumped!

I'm pumped!  

You know what else I'm pumped about?  Jay Gruden is possibly looking like he might get fired.  Can you imagine the awesomness if the Bengals can hire him as HC?

Boom. Championship!

Getting ready to head to Entertrainment Junction for the Christmas fun. That’s right, I said it, Entertrainment Junction.

I don’t even know what I’m getting into, but it will be better than the beat down that’s coming at the hands of the Chargers by a long shot !!!

Not ready to run a 2 point conversion to tie the game.  Had to rush up and snap it.  Typical Marvin team.  Not prepared by the coaches for important moments in the game.

Of course they tried to win.  It takes Marvin 12 or 13 games to figure his team out, then he’s ready to go grab for that job-saving, draft pick-wrecking, dead cat bounce.  

Didn’t seem to work today, though.

Entertrainment Junction has more sophisticated strategy lining up kids to see Santa than Marvin and Hue have trying to win a game with a 2 point conversion.

Are you ready?

The Bengals have moved up to #11 in the draft order.

The Raiders beat the Steelers possibly sending the Steelers out of the playoffs (Patriots, at Saints, Bengals) 8-7-1.

The Raiders are on a roll and should beat the Bengals next week almost guaranteeing a 5-11 season and a top 10 draft pick.

YES

Well, we had a great time with the kids and they loved the whole day we spent playing around like none of us had ever heard of a team called the Bengals !!!

I saw the men in black and orange didn’t let me down again either. Yawn....
