    As usual, the Bengals get no credit or love from the media after qualifying for the playoffs for the 4th time in 8 years. (It would have been 5 out of 8 if Shayne Graham doesn’t choke a 35-yarder.) Everyone (except for CBS) picks them to lose each week. The national media can’t wait for the next piece bad press to lump it on to something 6 years ago. Life as a Bengal fan: anonymous/invisible like the media sees all Marvin Lewis teams. Thanks for the story. They’re are hard to find.

      I couldn’t agree with you more Bruce. All I heard this week was that the Bengals have never been able to win the bi. Game. How the ravens and the steelers were the big brothers of the AFC north. and how the Bengals would need to beat them to get any respect. Well on Sunday they went into Pittsburgh and did it. Any die hard Bengal fan knows how hard it has been season after season. I have never been more proud of being a fan of this team than I was on Sunday. The best part was how the team reacted after the game. They still have work to do and they know it. And for that alone they deserve respect. Great article.

    NFL.COM and ESPN simply dismissed the whole game and blamed the loss on Rothlisberger, who they’d like to take down a notch and not call an elite quarterback.
    They refuse to recognize any great players on the team and would like the Bengals to sink into the abyss so they can continue to talk about the East and West coast teams (and the Cowboys.)
    Nothing new, same old stuff we’ve come to expect. Keep bringing the hate. thanks
