Default How do the freaking Bungles deserve to be in the playoffs?

Such a horrible offensive line and that defense is crap.

Man, my Texans would of put up a fight if they were playing the Jets.

Yeah. As I said in another thread, our guys are better than BOTH of these teams. I hope this fires our guys up for next year. Every game counts.

They won their division going 6-0 in it. We went 1-5 simple math.

Sure we might be the best non playoff team, but we're still looking on the outside.

They're the anti-Texans. They dominated within the division and sucked outside of it.

LOL!!!

I didn't know they did so well in their division. Well, if that's the case, good for them. They deserved to be there.

This team seems to forget about how important division games are.

Then how bad must that division be?

What the Bengals need is uniforms that don't look like underoos. Who can take any NFL team seriously when they're traipsing around in unis that look like a pee wee ball team?

Default Re: How do the freaking Bungles deserve to be in the playoffs?

I was telling everyone we had a really good shot this year if we could just get in the playoffs... and we were so close! KC did their job, Oakland was down 13-14 going into the 4th quarter. If they could have just pulled that upset then...

We'd be in Rd 1 playing Cincinnati. We already beat them and they're playing terrible. Chalk it up for a Texans win and us advancing to the next rd.

Rd 2 we'd be facing the Colts, I think. Both games this year we have been so close. Tough game, but it's not impossible to think we could have won this game.

But hey, we would have at least advanced past the 1st rd!

Take it for what it's worth, but only one team in the division finished with a losing record and the other team from the division that made the playoffs just put a pretty good beat down on a pretty good Pats team.

Right and other teams might say the same about the Texans if they concentrate on the 4 middle games before the stretch. Teams hit a bad patch and Cincys was at a bad time. They played good D and were looking nice for awhile.

Default Re: How do the freaking Bungles deserve to be in the playoffs?

If you finish above .500, and sweep your division (which the Bengals did),
chances are you'd find yourself in the playoffs. It's quite a simple formula,
really.

Bengals 2009
Overall Record: 10-6
Record vs. Division: 6-0
Record against everybody else: 4-6

So, basically. They did the reverse of what the Texans do every year, and
got in. If you own your division record, you'll have a MUCH better chance
at clinching a playoff spot. If you beat up on everybody else, you'd BETTER
compete in your own backyard. It's unrealistic to expect the Texans to finish
10-0 against non AFC South opponents. The title of this thread is flat out
ridiculous when you consider the facts.

Well I'll get beat up over those words considering my other affiliation but I couldn't agree more. I keep seeing posts about, "We could have beaten ALL of these playoff teams" or that somehow the Texans got screwed out of their place because of some league conspiracy. The truth is, they didn't win games when they needed to and these other teams won in the division and when they needed to. It is no ones fault but their own.

And I know you are at the other board. Hadn't been there in years until a little birdie told me to check on some Cowboy posts....at least one person isn't here....that I know of

10-6 won their division so the 6-0 was never part of the equation on them getting into the playoffs. Yes winning division games is important but you keep coming up with bad examples to make the argument.

The bolded is all that needs to be said about this season. I understand hindsight is blah, blah, but the fact is it was a disappointing season for me. It makes it hard to be happy about our first winning season when I reflect on "what could've been" if we just took care of business. Heck, thinking about it now pisses me off.

BTW, I like the Bengals uniform. It's the team itself that pissed me off this weekend.
