Not this year. Brady isn’t Brady anymore, and the Bengals are 3–0.
I really believed in the Bengals last year until they got eliminated by the San Diego Chargers in the play-offs.
But here are three reasons why 2014/2015 is the Bengals’ season.
By Mattis Holt – @matrixholt
1 – Diversity
Their offense can do anything. And when I say anything, I mean anything. They have a brilliant running back. They have a future hall of fame wide receiver. They have a young quarterback that keeps surprising. And they have a wide receiver/running back/quarterback in Mohamed Sanu. Their opponents never know what’s coming, and whatever it is, they know it will be hard to stop it.
2 – DE-FENSE
Any QB would be scared going up against Geno Atkins. Man, that guy is huge. But that’s not it. Carlos Dunlap is playing extraordinary, with three sacks already. Their defense have already made six interceptions. And they’re playing extremely well on 3rd down. They’ve only given up four touchdowns. Combined 33 points.
3 – Giovanni Bernard
He is fantastic. He’s small and quick, and has really good hands. He is perfect on the screen pass, and almost as good a receiver as a running back. He has 55 rushing attempts and 185 yards (avg. 3.4). That’s not that great but he got three TDs. And he also has 12 receptions and 148 yards (avg. 12,3).
The combination of these three elements will take the Bengals all the way to the Super Bowl. I don’t think we have seen the best of this team yet.
