As we prepare for the big game this weekend between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals we will have an on going discussion with RiverFrontBall. Today is part 1. This is my question to them and their response, below you will see their first question to me which I will answer and will be posted on their site.
The Bengals have lost their last two games, and lost to the Browns earlier in the year, what is the feeling around the team and city? Angry or down/disappointed.
Anger would be a good word to describe Bengals fans. Generally we do a twitter round up of fan reactions from the game, we skipped this week due to the anger.
Andy Dalton has struggled in his last two games prompting many to call him Carson Palmer and call for his head. It has been very hostile around Cincinnati lately.
Going into this weekend there is little hype/hope. The get in price for the game is down substantially than what it normally is, many fans have given up. It will be interesting to see if the fans show up this weekend.
With the Browns sitting second in the division with a game against the Bengals this week are the fans optimistic or guarded about the opportunity to better their standing in the north?
