They might as well rest everyone and just beat the shit out of Cincy in the playoffs.
    I doubt the Bengals will get past the Patriots in the first round.

    Sorry but the bengals of a few years ago were far more talented than they are now. Now they just have better coaches. But with that I'll say yes they have leap frogged the Squeelers as our biggest competition in the AFCN.
    For this season, yes. Next year the Steelers will be back. The Bengals are hardly a powerhouse by any definition.

    Here we go with this again. First, it was the wise one near the beginning of the season (GOTA). Now, Leach is putting his own thread into the mix.

    I will say this. They have shown a resiliency uncommon in Cincinnati, in years passed. However, Dalton and Co. have yet to beat the Ravens once, this is just the type of game that they'll lose (A meaningless game, following an emotionally charged victory in Pittsburgh) and they'll likely have to play New England in the first round.

    Does anybody honestly expect them to go into New England and take down the Patriots? Brady is going to work that cover-2 scheme. It will be a matchup nightmare. A.J. Green will make it entertaining, but that will be it.

    And even if they are a divisional foe, I will be rooting for the Bengals in that one like mad, can't stand the Pats, always like them to lose in the play offs.

    Well of course you want the wildcard team to win, gives the Ravens more opportunity for a home playoff game.

    Even if we were somehow in the NFC, I'd root for the Bengals, I fucking hate the Patriots, maybe more than the Steelers. Well not really that much, but still, my second most hated team.

    Byproduct of having a perennial playoff team.

    Great teams get their coaches raided by lesser teams with money to spend.

    Re: Time to take the Bengals seriously

    Back to back playoff appearances show the Bengals are a good team. They're young and talented, and Marvin Lewis is a good head coach. Working for the Ravens- and everyone else in the division- is Mike Brown. He's always had a crappy organization, and he hasn't shown yet that he's willing or able to fix that.

    So, until they show me otherwise, I'm going to consider the Steelers the bigger threat in the division. Yes, this was a down year. They've had them before. But that's a good organization that knows how to put a quality football team on the field. They've earned the expectation that they'll put a contender on the field next year, just like the Ravens have.
