Bengals Refuse To Lose In ‘Must Win’ Situation

Posted by Matt on October 8, 2007

After being favored by 7.5 against the Bye Week, the Cincinnati Bungles Bengals thankfully emerged this weekend unscathed. Marvin Lewis must have had one helluva ‘Win One For The Gipper’ speach this week as Cincinnait would not be denied.

But now they must take their stellar 1-3 record in to Kansas City next Sunday in what is another legitimate ‘must win’ situation.

All joking aside, if you told me the Bengals would be 1-3 at the Bye Week with their lone win NOT coming against the Cleveland Clowns I would’ve told you that you’re smoking something wacky, and then I would’ve proceeded to ask for some of whatever it is.

But nonethless the Bengals are sitting here with an atrocious record of 1-3, and with losses coming against a Cleveland squad that played musical quarterbacks in the preseason and a Seattle team that couldn’t muster a single point against Shitsburgh’s reserves. If Cincinnati loses this week’s game against Kansas City they might as well call it a year and start polishing up some of the staff members’ resumes. Win this week, and look good doing so, and The Jungle may once again be rocking with visions of Wild Card dancing in the fans’ heads.

In 2003 the Cincinnati Bengals were facing a then 9-0 Kansas City Chiefs squad and a one Chad Johnson guaranteed, and delivered, a win. If there was ever a time for a gut-check performance such as that, this week would be as good of a time as any. It is time for Cincinnati to swallow the excuses and turn the corner; the time for 8-8 seasons being acceptable in “The Queen City” are over and now it’s time to make regular appearances in the Playoffs.

I digress.
