The fact is that we haven't played a great team as of yet, but who cares? This is the schedule they were given, so that is the schedule they play. Very few would have thought that we would be 3-0 in this spot, and when they show they can play, people find a way to belittle it.
The fact is that this team is good, and should be for years to come with our young talent. We are good enough to make the playoffs, and maybe scare a team or two while we are there.
the Bengals have not only won each of their first three, but they have also beaten each team soundly. They are 3-0, and 2-0 on the road. In these years of NFL parity, you could lose any week that you don't bring it, and these days any road win is impressive, regardless of who it is against. Cleveland has looked like a team, Chicago has a very tough D, and Minnesota is loaded with talent. They are not the NFL's elite, but they are NFL teams. 3-0 is the best you can be at this point, and that is what Cincy is.
Others look at the run D, which is still relatively weak. Our young players will step up eventually, and if that is our only visible weakness, I'll take it.
Enjoy the 3-0 start, and let's cheer them into the playoffs. Who Dey.
