Will the Bengals make it to the Super Bowl ever again?The opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of StreetAdvisor. Report
Personally, I find it unlikely under current ownership that the Bengals will return to the Super Bowl. Their appearances in the Super Bowl were in the 1980's when owner Paul Brown was still alive. Paul Brown was a highly successful football coach in his own right and owner of the Bengals. Today, his legacy is greatly diminished by the penny-pinching ways of his son, Mike Brown. It has been reported that Mike Brown does not want to go to the Super Bowl, because the financial cost of participating is high. While the Bengals have improved over the last few years, their goal doesn't seem to be heading to the Super Bowl, just to win enough games to keep the fans coming back. They had a hard time keeping fans while constantly putting up losing seasons, a financial setback not likely to make team owner Mike Brown happy.

Yes! Although the Bengals are consistently mocked and criticized by other cities, they've been improving over the last few years. In 2005 they made it to the playoffs...but lost (I was at the game, it was EXTREMELY disappointing...) but I have a feeling that this coming year they're going to be better than ever. They often make it to the last few rounds before they drop out, but it's only going to take a little more effort and determination for them to rise to the top! Marvin Lewis, who won Coach of the Year Award in 2009, has to keep pushing them. He's often criticized as well, but if he sticks with it and throws all his energy into the team, I think they can make it. Who Dey!
