do you even need to ask? back in the '80s, they went to 2 Super Bowls and were pretty good, then in '90 they made the playoffs...for the most recent time. They've sucked ever since
The Bengals are pathetic. They actually had a chance at the playoffs in '03 and blew it!

a team who wants to be part of the "popular crowd" but just can't seem to find leg warmers that fit.
The Cincinnati Bengals went to the mall to look for 2006-2007 uniforms, but Hanes doesn't make leg warmers in sizes
XXX crap.

an insignificant team from the insignificant town of cincinnati, ohio, whose only tradition is losing. the fans think they are rivals with the browns and the steelers, but cleveland and pittsburgh hate each other and really dont care about them whatsoever. they stole the idea of the "dawg pound" and created "the jungle." they stole the "Terrible Towel" and created the "who dey hanky."
Bengals Fan: "I love my Cincinnati Bengals, and I can't wait for the Steeler's game. I hate them. WHO DEY!!!"
Steelers Fan: "Cincinnati Who?"
Bengals Fan: "I hate the Browns, lets go Bengals."
Browns Fan: "Cincinnati Who? FUCK PITTSBURGH."

A team on the rise. I am not saying this on account of the success thus far in 2005, I am simply saying this because the team's rise has been apparent since the end of 2002. After 12 seasons of losing, Team President Mike Brown (somehow the son of Paul Brown) finally opened his eyes and realized his fans were tired of waiting for the playoffs as well as a .500 season, and if he wanted to see another day, he would have to take initiative and hire a legitimate coaching staff. This occurred when Brown hired Marvin Lewis, the genius behind the 2000 Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens. Lewis is a tough but fair coach who brings out the best in his players. Lewis also should have been hired as a head coach much sooner. Soon this will make Brown look brilliant on account of his ability to build up a team. The Cincinnati Bengals have not had a truly successful season since the 1988 season when they finished 12-4 and came very close to defeating the San Fransisco 49ers in Super Bowl 23. The Bengals endured a horrendous and humiliating decade following that Super Bowl loss.

Currently the Bengals have one of the best young quarterbacks in Carson Palmer, a consistent and durable halfback in Rudi Johnson, a group of talented wide receivers such as the vocal Chad Johnson, and a young improved defense guided by Marvin Lewis's expertise. The Bengals have become one of the more fun teams to watch in football and are currently playing their hearts out to compete with the likes of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North Division. The Bengals have devoted fans who have stuck with this franchise throughout all of the losing seasons. The Bengals will officially drop the "Bungles" term this season when they turn heads not only in the media but around the league as well.
The Cincinnati Bengals should begin to make the playoffs and take teams such as the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers by surprise now that Head Coach Marvin Lewis has his team moving in the right direction.

The Newport Bengals are Kentucky's only professional sports team. There fans are trash and they have no tradition.
The Cincinnati Bengals are a joke.
