Just Beat the Bengals -- Don't Look Ahead

Recommended Posts

My feeling is go week by week and this week its just beat the Bengals. I love the optimism here and I share it. But don't get ahead of yourself just beat the Bengals and next week the Patriots and the next week The Titans etc etc etc. Just play week by week, I think Josh said that in the post game presser.

I have to say that I disagree with you, immensely.  

 

I was hoping we would look ahead to the Patriots and just wing it against the Bengals.

Yep. I’ve heard them say they’re 0-0. After beating the Giants they said they were 1-0. But each week they start preparing for their next opponent, they see it as a new season. So they are 0-0 again heading into Bengals game. That’s a great outlook to have.

Well, that's a novel approach. One week at a time. Interesting. So they shouldn't prepare for the Titans this week?

OP is right.  I hear people talkin' 'bout the Cheats in week 4.  Concentrate on destroying the Ginger this week first.  We're not good enough to look past anybody yet.

Thanks for the wise ass answer. Read the threads here were so good we should ready for the SB. Sorry playing week by week went over your head

As a fan, by definition, we are supposed to look ahead.

What fans think is irrelevant to game results.

You fail to see how the coach and GM have approached this season. Every game is a season unto itself. Week by week. The OP says he agrees with that approach (unlike so many “analysts” who keep saying the Bills will be tested by NE. Hogwash. Every week is a test. You might want to consider that in your speedy (and snarky) responses. But you’re a super intelligent football mind so I best back off.

And I don't think they are just anybody either.  They almost took it to the Seahawks week 1.  They have a potent offense.  And they must be in desperate to win mode

Of any team/fanbase, the Buffalo Bills are not the ones to ever look ahead or take an opponent lightly.  There has not been enough winning around here to be that cocky.  Cinci has NFL players and are dangerous.  A few years ago when Cinci was good and the Bills were crap we went in there an beat em.  They could do the same here.

Now we are both on the same page.

Waiting for some genius to call the Bengals a 'trap game'.

I’m already thinking ahead to next year’s draft.

 

But do we have enough cap space to sign FA's and all our draft picks?

We the fans can do whatever we want because we aren’t playing. The team has shown zero signs of looking past what is right in front of them. McDermott has them locked in.

This too is a critical part of being a fan. Circulating hot air, making unfounded and unsupported opinions sound like facts, and looking ahead to other games with blind optimism.

So “one game at a time” applies to us fans, too?  If so, why?

McDermott needs to be locked in at generating a pass rush.  Dalton will beat you if you give him too much time.

I get what you’re saying.

I want to believe but I’m reigning in expectations. 

 

Week to week keep racking up the wins it’s a long season.
