I don’t care about what the media thinks. Yeah, I heard Dilfers comment about how the Bengals beat only the lambs but can’t beat the Lions (or whatever stupid thing he said). See these people can not get over their original picks. Dilfer has SD in the super bowl in his picks this year.
I pick on Joe Reedy the most because he is local, he should know better. Tell me how being so close to this team he could not see the talent on the squad. Why early in the season did he continue to pick against the Bengals in games we knew they were going to win. Tell me how my original season prediction was somewhere between 8-8 and 9-7 while all the other experts had the Bengals from winless to maybe 6 wins if they got lucky?
It is because the media has no idea what they are talking about. For one, they can’t follow all 32 teams equally. They don’t see every play, only the highlights. They can’t let go of their preconceived notions and there is no accountability.
Even if the Bengals win this weekend the media will question them. Even if they win out, the media will say they can’t win a playoff game.
The Bengals are exceeding everyone’s expectations. Enjoy it. I could give a rats ass what the media says.
