Purple Nurple

Merged: Cincy or Indy - Preference?

62 posts in this topic

definitely indy. their d is bad and they're very young and inexperienced. on the other hand, cincy is red hot defensively and they have more playmakers on offense.

Not sure it matters. Indy has 2 speed rushers in Mathis and Freeney that would light up our 2 tackles. Indy has a horsehoe up their butt as Luck has led 8 come from behind wins. Meanwhile over the last 8 weeks or so Cincy is hot. However, if you take Green out of the game Cincy is very vanilla on offense. We just have to play our game and win the game.

Nah, just never see you in RT this much and you NEVER start threads. Figured something "different". Cheers to one more drink and then shuttin' er down!

Oh yeah, lets get the 3rd seed and have even higher chance for more than 1 home game...aka play Cincy.

I want Indy. Luck likes to throw picks and Reed could tee off on a guy like him. They've allowed the ninth most sacks in the league. Their defense isn't too hot.

Yeah. I want Indy.

I realize the playoffs would be in Baltimore, but something about playing them twice in a row has me feeling "iffy".

Luck though has been some-what of clutch this season too at the same time.

But I also believe in the phrase, "careful what you wish for", so...

I can not answer this question. Sorry.

Indy. We are a different team (obviously) when we destroyed Cinci in week 1, as are the Bengals. They've been playing very good the last few weeks. And next week, i don't think we will see much of our starters play because we have the division wrapped up and not much to play for. Indy has a bad defense (outside of Mathis and Freeney), and their only real offensive weapon is Reggie Wayne. Luck throws a lot of picks, and i think we could convert off them. Not to mention, it would be pretty sweet to have Chuck come back here for his first playoff game with his new team, and then we end their season.

Is there actually a scenario where we would play Cinci?

I guess if we win and NE loses, then we take the 3rd seed(?) and play Cinci twice in a row.

So what are the W/L scenarios that lead us to play each team?

If we win next week and NE loses, we take the third seed. If we lose and NE wins we take fourth. If we win and NE wins, I think we take third because we beat them earlier.

I'd much rather play Indy and then the current league punching bag Texans than Cincy and the Broncos.

aren't mathis and freeney playing the OLB positions in the 3-4 now, so they will have to do more than just rush the passer like before

I would rather see Indy as well. What do they need to do or not to see us?

When I first looked at the playoffs, I immediately wanted them to play Indy. Mostly, because this will be their first look at the Colts. I just don't like the Ravens playing the same team three times. It makes me feel weird.

With that being said, if the Ravens play like they did today, and they can beat any team in the playoffs.

Cincy has cooled down in recent weeks. They used to be red hot aka Dalton, but as of late the Steelers game is really the only impressive win and it could of went either way.

I still rather face Indy. Even though a week ago I told my friend that they'll beat us and thats how it will go down. (Still had Cam though)

I also think it would be cool for Caldwell to beat them and Pagano lose to us.

I say Cincy because they have to remember how they fared in Baltimore the last time they played here. They will be tentative and try to do too much, which will make them lose again!

Indy on the other hand is an unknown commodity and there is always that Chuck factor, because their players will want to win badly for their coach, especially here in Baltimore....

On the other hand the colts have some impressive wins under their belt.

I think I rather see Cincy now. People think they've been red hot and all (and they have) but since beating the Giants in week 10 they beat KC,OAK,PHI,SD & lost to Dallas on last second field goal. 3 other wins of theirs has come from JAX,WSH & CLE.

Ughhh, both teams would be tough. We know Cincy better but so do they. Also Joe kind of has a bad past vs them.

Already nervous about it.

Haha it is a big pet peeve of mine when people post incorrect postseason scenarios. To get the 3 seed, we have to win AND the Pats have to lose to Miami.

Mike Zimmer has the Bengals D playing at a very high level

Colts gave up over 300 yds rushing yesterday.
Having said that, we weren't far off the mark too when we played the Chiefs

I want Indy

they are locked as 5th seed.. the only scenario for us to get bungals in wildcard is to beat them sunday and patsies to lose at fins... pretty much no chance as patsies can still get 1st or 2nd seed, theoretically speaking

To be honest, it doesn't really matter to me. I'll take either one of those teams over Patriots, Texans or Broncos right now. Hopefully we get that first win and the other teams that face us we play lights out. The good thing about our team right now is that we don't have as much pressure as those 3 teams to succeed. The last 3 years, the team that no one thought would make it to the Super Bowl did. I wanna stay under the radar like this.

NE is a game ahead of us with only 4 losses. If we both win, seeding doesn't change. The rest of what you said is correct, however.

The Ravens can be their own worst enemy, so regardless of who they play, THEY need to come out and perform well.

In terms of who is the hotter team to face right now, it's probably the Bengals. They just beat the Steelers in the hatred that is Heinz Field. The Colts are hot right now too, but even if Andrew Luck looks like a veteran at times, he's still a rookie. He still will make rookie mistakes. Dalton makes similar mistakes, but he's got a better defense to help him overcome the mistakes he makes.
