Cincinnati Bengals: It’s Time To Stop Talking about the “Talent” on This Team

We all knew the kids in school, the ones who had tons of book smarts, but no common sense or "street smarts."
That would describe the 2010 Cincinnati Bengals, as the pedigree on this team, at least on paper, is awesome, but the sheer number of mental errors, physical mistakes and selfishness negates all that.
Therefore, it's time to let go of this notion that they are somehow "talented."
If you don't use your gifts, then you never really had them in the first place.
Talented teams don't lose seven in a row, and I don't care that all of the losses (expect for this loss against Buffalo) were close losses.
Talented teams don't commit five turnovers in one game or blow 21-point leads at home to a team with one win coming in to play.
Talented teams go all out on every play and don't sulk when their number isn't being called.
I don't care what Carson Palmer did in 2005 or what Chad Ochocinco used to be. It has no relevance in 2010.
