Bengals 2014-2015 Outlook
The biggest news of the offseason for the Cincinnati Bengals is the monster $115 million deal the team gave quarterback Andy Dalton. After he has struggled in each of his postseason opportunities (0-3 career record), there are concerns about the deal.
Cincinnati’s defense has always been its biggest strength, but with a strong cast of weapons on offense in both the ground and air attacks, this could be the season Dalton finds his rhythm and becomes an elite QB.

Paul Brown Stadium
The Cincinnati Bengals have played in 3 different stadiums during their existence. Currently, the Cincinnati Bengals play in Paul Brown Stadium, which was constructed for play at the start of the 2000 NFL regular season. Obviously, the stadium is named after the legendary founder and head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals, Paul Brown. Paul Brown Stadium has a seating capacity of 65,535 and sits on a lot of approximately 22 acres. Paul Brown Stadium is a high tech stadium full of first class amenities. Two high definition scoreboards occupy either end zone. The stadium has 114 private luxury suites and numerous clubs seats.
“Welcome to the Jungle”
Cincinnati Bengals fans often refer to Paul Brown Stadium as the “Jungle”. The popular Guns N’ Roses song “Welcome to the Jungle” has affectionately become the Cincinnati Bengals theme song. That song can often be heard throughout each and every home game. The “Jungle” name is also a reference to the animal mascot – the Bengal tiger. Following the 2003 season, the Cincinnati Bengals painted a jungle motif and Bengal tiger stripes on the interior walls of Paul Brown Stadium. Be sure to bring your tiger whip when you attend a game in the “Jungle” that is Paul Brown Stadium.

The Cincinnati Bengals are a professional football team in the National Football League (the NFL). The Cincinnati Bengals play in the American Football Conference (AFC) North Division with three other teams: the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns. The Cincinnati Bengals have not won any Super Bowl Championships. Paul Brown Stadium, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, hosts all Cincinnati Bengals home games.
The Cincinnati Bengals joined the AFL in 1968 following the granting of a franchise to former founder and Head Coach of the Cleveland Browns, Paul Brown. Paul Brown remained involved in the Cleveland Browns operations until 1961, when he sold his majority interest in the Cleveland Browns to Cleveland businessman Art Modell. Two years later, Art Modell unexpectedly fired Paul Brown and Mr. Brown found himself looking from the outside in. For the next 4 years, Paul Brown was not involved in any professional football organization. When then Ohio Governor James A. Rhodes convinced Paul Brown that the State of Ohio should have a second professional football team, Mr. Brown jumped at the opportunity. Paul Brown set up the newest AFL franchise in Cincinnati and named the team the “Bengals” in honor of a previous professional football team that played in the AFL from 1937 through 1942. The terms of the Cincinnati Bengals’ AFL franchise grant included a right for the Cincinnati Bengals to become a franchise in the NFL once the AFL-NFL merger was completed in 1970. The Cincinnati Bengals played their home games in Nippert Stadium during their first 2 years of existence. Nippert Stadium was the home of the University of Cincinnati college football team. On September 20, 1970, the Cincinnati Bengals played their first home game in the new multi-purpose stadium, Riverfront Stadium, built for the Bengals and Cincinnati’s MLB baseball team, the Cincinnati Reds. The Cincinnati Bengals played their home football games in Riverfront Stadium through the end of the 1999 season. Riverfront Stadium was renamed “Cinergy Stadium” in 1996 following a sponsorship with the Cinergy Corporation, the energy conglomerate that provided services for the greater Cincinnati area.
Under Head Coach Paul Brown, the Cincinnati Bengals finished with a winning record and made the playoffs 3 times in 1970, 1973 and 1975. Each time, the Cincinnati Bengals lost in the first round of the playoffs. The Cincinnati Bengals did not reach post-season play again until 1981 when Head Coach Forrest Gregg led them to consecutive playoff appearances in 1981 and 1982. In 1981, the Cincinnati Bengals won the AFC Central with a 12-4 record and advanced to their first Super Bowl berth in the franchise’s history. And although the Cincinnati Bengals out-gained the San Francisco 49ers on offense in Super Bowl XVI, the San Francisco 49ers forced 5 Cincinnati Bengals turnovers and held on for a 26-21 victory. That Super Bowl victory was the first of four Super Bowl Championships for Hall of Fame Quarterback Joe Montana. Following the strike-shortened 1982 NFL regular season, the New York Jets upset the Cincinnati Bengals in the first round of the NFL playoffs. The Cincinnati Bengals would not return to the playoffs for 5 long NFL regular seasons. In 1988, the Cincinnati Bengals once again won the AFC Central with a 12-4 record. After breezing through 2 playoff victories against the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills, the Cincinnati Bengals ran into arch-nemesis Joe Montana and his San Francisco 49ers in another Super Bowl match-up. In Super Bowl XXIII, the Cincinnati Bengals built a 16-13 lead with less than 4 minutes remaining in the game. Joe Montana then led one of the most memorable 4th quarter drives in Super Bowl history and connected on a 10-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver John Taylor. Joe Montana marched the San Francisco 49ers 92 yards in 3 minutes as they won their 3rd Super Bowl of the decade. Cincinnati Bengals fans could only weep and wait. The Cincinnati Bengals have only made the NFL playoffs twice from 1988 through 2004 and from 1991 through 2004, the Cincinnati Bengals never won more than 8 games.
During the 2005-6 NFL season, however, the rebuilding process finally produced positive results as the Cincinnati Bengals finished with an 11-5 record which was good for a 1st place finish in the AFC North. The Cincinnati Bengals faced the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild card round of the playoffs and were confident in their ability to score an important playoff victory on their home turf. But when Quarterback Carson Palmer went down with a season-ending knee injury on a touchdown pass in the 1st quarter of the game, the wind left the sails of the Bengals players and their fans. The Pittsburgh Steelers went on to defeat the Bengals 31-17 denying the Bengals of that first playoff victory in over 15 years. Coming off the successful 2005 campaign, the loyal Bengals fan base was extremely disappointed when the Cincinnati Bengals only finished with a .500 record the following season and failed to qualify for post-season play. The downward trend continued during the 2007-8 campaign as the Cincinnati Bengals finished with a 7-9 record and failed to qualify for the playoffs for the 2nd consecutive year. On paper, the Cincinnati Bengals have an extremely talented team, and Head Coach Marvin Lewis needs to re-tool certain positions and schemes in order to right the ship, or his job could be on the line.
All Cincinnati Bengals football games can be seen on one of the following television broadcasts depending on the team they are playing: Fox Sports, CBS, or ESPN. Tune into 1530HOMER The Sports Animal (WCKY-AM) or 92.5 The Fox (WOFX-FM) to catch each Cincinnati Bengals football game on the radio.
