Official 2012 Record Prediction Thread

I figure the 4th game of the preseason isn't going to change much so I figured I would get this going.

How do you think the season is going to turn out for our Bengals ??

Honestly, I think this team is going to be a good team, but when going through the schedule and just giving it an initial thought to the teams we are facing, it didn't turn out very well. This was my initial go through:

At Baltimore- LOSS

Cleveland- WIN

At Washington- WIN

At Jacksonville- WIN

Miami- WIN

At Cleveland- LOSS

Pittsburgh- LOSS

BYE WEEK

Denver- LOSS

NY Giants- LOSS

At Kansas City- WIN

Oakland- WIN

At San Diego- LOSS

Dallas- WIN

At Philadelphia- LOSS

At Pittsburgh- LOSS

Baltimore- WIN

That works out to 8-8. Not exactly what I was hoping for.

It could go differently and obviously i'm hoping for that, but this schedule is much tougher than last seasons.

If they don't get a consistent pass rush, some of these teams will eat them up.

I'm going with the line of thought that things bounce in their direction and will say 10-6.

I don't know if that's good enough for another playoff appearance, but we will see.

What say you Bengalzoners ??

I'll say 7-9 I really had my hopes up for another playoff run and maybe a playoff win, but there is a lot of questions with this team. I don't like the running game so far, maybe they pick a guy up, but so far had not impressed. The o-line is not playing toghter something is off, and now one guard done for the year, and the center done for who knows how long. Defensive secondary in preseason has not looked great without a pass rush, I'm hoping there will be consistant pressure this year.

I hope in wrong I think I picked this record last year and they surprised me, so maybe they can do it again. I was all excited till these injuries hit, I know it's the preseason, but nothing really wowed me into thinking they will be great. Ok bengals now go and prove me wrong again!

9-7 because of the early schedule. I think that a strong start could propel them to a decent finish, because any team plays better when it stays in the race. If they lose one or two to the crappy teams in the first seven weeks then it could get really ugly though.

As the state of the roster is at present I'm gonna go with 2-4 in the divsional matches - but i'm not syaing where the W's or L's occur or aginst whom.

The rest of the seaon I see as 4-6 :-

At Washington- WIN

At Jacksonville- LOSS

Miami- WIN

Denver- LOSS

NY Giants- LOSS

At Kansas City- LOSS

Oakland- WIN

At San Diego- LOSS

Dallas- WIN

At Philadelphia- LOSS

Wow ..thats a 6-10 record and a hell of a disappointment. Maybe we can swing a L to a W somehwere and make it 7-9 but thats about it.

I'd love to see some action to bring in some solid pro's at C and CB which could change things, but as it stands this is how I see it :angry:

With a game left, there are 5 that are within one game of hitting the nail on the head.

Not that there is anything to win, but it's fun to look at.

Predicted 10-6:

COB (also predicted playoff win) Hoping you are right !!

I actually picked which games I thought they would win or lose and while they fell differently, i'm right there.

COB also predicted a playoff win, so here's to hoping he's the big winner !!!
