Wait a minute: He's played very well against "Quality opponents" in the regular season and has led the team to the playoffs in each of his two NFL seasons.
Just last season, the Bengal beat the Redskins, Giants, Ravens and Steelers. Those are "quality" opponents. If the blame lies with someone during their two playoff losses to the Texans, it's with the offensive coordinator and head coach.
He's a young QB that's fully capable of beating "quality" opponents and he's only 25 years old. I believe the Bengals will continue to ascend this season because they locked up some of their talent, added James Harrison and presumably did well in the draft.
