“They really aren't that great”
The Cincinnati Bengals play real football, the kind with a Beer, Helmets, and Hated by every country outside of the United States and Kentuckistan. The Bengals are one of the eight original NFL teams. They were founded in the year 7 PNFL (or pre-NFL) by amature football player Rick Rubin in the CFL (or Cincinnati Football League), however the team was quickly sold to Jon Stewart due to Rubin being run out of Cincinnati after trampelling Oscar Wilde at a The Who concert in 1857. They are also well known for being particuarly good in the 1990's, managing to win over 4% of the games they played. One of their coaches in the 1990s, Bruce Coslet, is credited for inventing the "3rd Down Punt" play that has led the Bengals to achieve their goal of confusing the fuck out of their fans. The Bengals are a government conspiracy designed to make Police officers shoot Black People levitating over Germany. They have induced mass panic and hurricanes named after women, much like a normal football team would be expected to. They certainly do not start riots that cause Oprah to hate their city. The catch phrase "Child Please" was created by ex-Cincinnati Bengal Randy Ocho Uno as a nice way to say "Fuck you" without Coach Bill Beerbellychick getting on your case about being a dick. The phrase is most often used in context of sentences such as, "Child Please, of course Randy Ocho Uno and Bill Beerbellychick are Cincinnati Bengals jokes."
The CFL and begginning of the NFL
In the beginning, God created the Heavens, the Earth, and the Cincinnati Football League. The Bengals started off to a sketchy beginning, losing their first 3 games ever to the Cincinnati Reds, The Cincinnati Royals, and the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks. However their Bengals did the Hokey-Pokey and turned themselves around and went on to win the next 6 games, eventually beating the Cincinnati Cyclones in the Final Game, just enough to make the CFL Playoffs. After a much better showing in the playoffs they went on to the championship game where they would lose to the Cincinnati Celts, however the game was later forfeited to the Bengals due to the fact that the Cincinnati Celts were involved with 9/11.
After 3 years of poor performance, faced with the threat of folding if they don't do well, the Bengals cut every single player, fired every coach, and the team was sold to Offensive Coordinator Steven Colbert. While some accused the new team of being a cheap Spin-Off of the old Bengals, they quickly proved to be a better TV Show Team, winning every single CFL championship until the league folded (due to the Bengals eventually being the only team left).
After the CFL folded the Bengals went looking for a new league to play in, they sought to create a professional sport out of this backyard excuse to drink Beer. They decided to form a league with 7 other teams. The Canton Puppy Dogs, The Long Beach Baby Panthers, the Dallas Assassains, the Phlipadelphia Cheesesteaks, The Misfits, The Atlantis Unicorns, and the Denver Broncos. The Bengals were the first team to sign the contract for the League and therefore are technically the First Professional Football team in History.
Before 1977 the Bengals were just your average NFL team. Although, having been the only team to have survived from the original 8 teams they commanded a certain ammount of respect from the other teams. However, the other teams were too busy having gay sex playing well to pay attention to the Bengals. NFL historians have found fossils that even suggest that the Bengals were not even recognized as a legitamate team untill 1968 when the team was sold by Steven Colbert's grandson Mike Colbert to Paul Black, Ex- Head coach of the notorious Cleveland Blacks (re-named to the Browns in 1997 to follow the Cleveland tradition of pissing off Native Americans).
In 1977 the Bengals finally decided to make themselves known. They went 0-16. Not only did they fail to win a single game but they only managed to score one point all season. There were talks of turning Riverfront Stadium into a High School so that the Bengals could classify as a High School football team, but the NFL decided that, to increase profits, instead of giving teams a bye week, they could just play the Bengals because it's a guaranteed win, even with the third and fourth stringers playing. It was praised by players of the late 70s and early 80s as being, "more relaxing than sitting at home, watching Gunsmoke, and trying to find out who killed JR."
After 1977 the Bengals went on a 7 year streak of 1-15 seasons, each year they managed to beat the Steelers who at the time surpassed the Bengals as the worst team in the NFL, even though this seems impossible given previous statements made in this article. This game was always enticing because it was played on the last week of the season and each team would try to lose so they could get the first pick in the draft. It never really mattered though because any player drafted by either team would refuse to play for them. In those 7 years 13 of the 14 players drafted in the first round by these teams retired before their first game, except for the one got traded to the New York Giants and developed an outbreak of vaginas on his skin.
1985 started out just like any other year in the past 7. The Bengals went 1-15, people were irate and began rioting. The whole team was a laughing stock and the few fans the Bengals had left started framing the players by placing guns in their cars and injecting them with drugs. The cops who were the masterminds behind this all would then arrest them. Eventually the whole team was in jail and they started up their own prison team called the gridiron gang which surprisingly was halfway decent. Unfortunately, this didn't help them much when they returned to play because not all of us can be Michael motherfucking Vick.
Under a new owner and a completely rebuilt team the Bengals overcame obstacles to finish 3-13. The city was so excited that they held a parade. Martin Luther King Jr gave his famous I have a dream speech, in which he stated that he was hoping that his children would one day see a day where the Bengals would make the playoffs, a dream that was recognized when Hell froze over c. 2005 AD.
The next year the Bengals managed to improve to 4-12, the fans were ecstatic because there team was making progress. They knew that at this pace the Bengals were bound to win the Super Bowl.
