Cincinnati Bengals fans not very confident going into 2014 season


Despite three straight playoff appearances and having plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the 2014 season, Cincinnati Bengals fans aren’t very confident.

Recently a digital marketing agency known as Prime Visibility ranked all 32 NFL teams based on a metric that evaluated how fans are feeling about their teams via social media mentions. Here is how they calculated fan confidence, according to Yahoo Sports:



So a 77 percent sentiment rating means that fans think their team will have an 8-8 record this season.

How do Bengals fans feel? The Prime Visibility ranking said that 78 percent of Bengals fans are confident, which means they think at best Cincinnati will have a .500 record this season. That puts them in the middle of the pack at number 15 overall. Sounds a little low to me, but at this point it seems like nothing but a playoff win will satisfy.

Hey, it could be worse – Dallas Cowboys fans were ranked the least confident in the NFL at just 59 percent.
