Reasons For Optimism: Episode II

Bengals Texans

Saturday is the big day, and if you are like me, you’re almost literally counting the hours until game time.  This is the fourth playoff appearance for the Bengals of the Marvin Lewis regime, so luckily for us it’s become almost commonplace to be in the playoffs and the awful stench of the lost decade [...]
