The Bengals and the AFC North... and T.O.

I think anyone can win the division. I mean it is the NFL. None of you gave the Bengals a chance last year.

The T.O. signing has been just what the DR. ordered. I mean not so much because what he can do on the field... Don't get me wrong that is huge but what the T.O. signing did was get momentum back in the Bengals locker room. After how last season ended... it was almost like the Bengals didn't win the division that the season was a failure. The T.O. signing has eveyone forgeting how last season ended. Now it is the OCHO/T.O. Combo SHOW! There is a buzz around the Bengals. Excitement! The players, the fans, and the city are ready. Last years playoff loss is OLD news now...

Now T.O. signing is a risk. It is imperative that the Bengals start off strong. The Bengals need the momentum! They need everyone feeling good and on boad. The Bengals open with the Patriots and Ravens... They need to at least split those. The schedule gets a little easier after that but the Bengals need have a good record going into the Bye week. They can't let any finger pointing or give me the ball more and we will win stuff going on. Like we aren't throwing enough. We need to run the ball more. They need to have an identity and have eveyone signed up. If that happens and the Bengals stay healthy they should be in playoff contention. They have a tough schedule so all I am hoping for is that they make the playoffs. Just get in the tournamanet and see what happends!

I CAN'T WAIT FOR FOOTBALL!!!

The Ravens seemed to be the trendy pick. The injuries have certainly hurt but with Ray Rice running the ball that should open things up for everyone on offense. The real question is the D... Will it hold up? I think it will be the secondary is a weakness. Their stars are a year older. Ed Reed is banged up... 

If the Steelers survive Ben's suspension and is re-acclimation they should be fine. You have to wonder what is going on with the Steelers. I am thinking Tomlin is now Cowher. He is more Larry Cocker... The Steelers lost some big games at the end of last year. Who knows... I'd be worried if I was a Steelers fan a little bit. But they are the Steelers and I will never ever count them out. That would be foolish and stupid!

The Browns.. Heck maybe they will pull a 2009 Bengals? They seem to be going in the right direction but i jus don't think they are there yet.
