of couse we had the tale of two seasons last year. Obviously in september or october we would have destroyed the bungals.... but in december they would have destroyed us.

but it goes to show.... stay healthy, play consistent, and get a little luck...and instead of having a legendary collapse in the wc round ....maybe your playing in the super bowl.

we really were that close fellas.....

I said this last year. The Bengals were basically the AFC Cardinals. I don't think there was much between the two rosters, even down to the coaches.

But got to hit form at the right time.

"Collins is aiming for a starting spot at inside linebacker, as it's no guarantee that he'll have one when the regular season starts. So preseason games could be important to see where his development as a player currently stands."

A little concerning.

North of the 49th.

So says José.

This is my take as well. Of course injuries played into it a bit.
Lots of people seem to forget, we were the best team in football for about 12-13 weeks last season. However, the old adage reigns supreme, "it's not how you start, it's how you finish".
The front office have basically decided to re-sign most of the main pieces from last season and hope to run it back again. With some injury luck (and getting Dhop back), hopefully we can peak at the back half of the season instead of the front.

Not heard a peep about Christian Matthew in camp. What a weird pick that was.

I doubt it. Since you will be in Sky Harbor. Unless your account is based outside of the PHX market.
If you will be in Sky Harbor, watch the game from one of the bars in the terminal. I'm sure it will be on.
