I’ll try to write a column a week, maybe for a Thursday but more than likely a Friday

The Bengals entertain the Dolphins this Sunday, sadly or not so sadly for some there will be no reunion between the Bengals and Chad Johnson/Ochocinco or whatever he calls himself  now. Instead Tannehill, Hartline and the Bush you can support and the gang roll into town.

I firmly believe that the Bengals can really beat up upon Miami this Sunday, not so much of a statement game, I believe they happen if/when the Bengals were to take it to the Steelers or Ravens. The Bengals though, have made there statement in that they’re beating teams they should be beating, remember those years when we’d smashed annually by an .500 Houston Texans? Or we’d give up 2 score leads to the Bills? For the past few years, those days have been a distant memory (touch wood!).

The combined records of opponents who the Bengals have beaten this season is 3-9, now the critics can point out that the Bengals have not beaten anybody with a winning record but surely by continually beating those teams who have inferior records you are showing consistency? Nothing is more infuriating than knowing your team should have won a game it was capable of winning, yes in the NFL there are no easy games yet the fact is you need to beat these teams consistenly in order to progress and maintain pressure upon the Ravens and Steelers of this world.

Yes, I would love the Bengals to beat the Steelers, Ravens, Patriots and those other teams with winning but then, for example the Bengals then go on and lose the next game to an inferior team then all that momentum has been lost. Whilst we can’t take wins against sub .500 teams, or even at worse assume a win I’m quite happy for the Bengals to continue with 3-1 starts, at this stage of the development of this team, beating the teams we ought to beat is the correct way forward.

Who dey!
