Talented Texans and Bengals Look for Consistency

Posted: Jun 04, 2010

Two teams in our Swampland Footprint that will look to repeat a winning season in 2010 are the Cincinnati Bengals and the Houston Texans. Both franchises have seemed to be a little snake-bitten over the last few years. Cincinnati looked like an exciting passing team on the rise in 2005, but then struggled through many off-the-field issues and three mediocre seasons before getting back to the Playoffs last year with the running and defense formula. Houston battled slow starts in ’07 and ’08 to finish 8-8, and then finally achieved their first winning record in '09 despite missing the postseason once again.

The Bengals may have to play better in 2010 just to return to the Playoffs because of the rugged AFC landscape. In the Draft, they added two quality Big 12 weapons for Carson Palmer with the selections of Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham and Texas wide receiver/returner Jordan Shipley. Both players should help immediately as Cincinnati tries to prove that last year’s division title was not a fluke. A strong follow-up campaign would show a skeptical fan base that the Bengals are headed in the right direction under Marvin Lewis.

Houston fans are still desperately waiting for their first Playoff game. This roster is talented enough to get to there, especially after adding Alabama cornerback Kareem Jackson and Auburn running back Ben Tate in the Draft. Those two positions will be key for a team trying to leap frog the Colts by running the ball more effectively and playing well in the secondary. Coach Gary Kubiak will need to get the Texans to their first postseason to placate a restless fan base in the Lone Star State.

Cincinnati and Houston have solid teams that were enhanced with quality draft picks. They will have a tough road to the Playoffs in the brutal AFC, but both will need to get there in 2010 to gain their fans’ confidence and avoid organizational changes.

THE GHOST HAS ATTAINED the southernmost point of the arc she is describing across the Pacific, and is already beginning to edge away to the west and north toward some lone island, it is rumored, where she will fill her water-casks before proceeding to the season's hunt along the coastugg boots clearance of Japan. The hunters have experimented and practiced with their rifles and shotguns till they are satisfied, and the boat-pullers and steerers have made their sprit-sails, bound the oars and rowlocks in leather and sennit so that they will make no noise when creeping on the seals, and put their boats in ugg boots clearanceapple-pie order, to use Leach's homely phrase.His arm, by the way, has healed nicely, though the scar will remain all his life. Thomas Mugridge lives in mortal fear of him, and is afraid to venture on deck after dark. There are two or three standing quarrels in the forecastle. Louis tells me that the gossip of the sailors finds its way aft, and that two of the telltales have been badly beaten by their mates. He shakes his head dubiously over the outlook for the man Johnson, who is boat-puller in the same boat with him. Johnson has been guilty of speaking his mind too freely, and has collided two orugg boots clearance three times with Wolf Larsen over the pronunciation of his name. Johansen he thrashed on the amidships deck the other night, since which time the mate has called him by his proper name. But of course it is out of the ugg boots clearancequestion that Johnson should thrash Wolf Larsen.
