It’s been an up-and-down season for the Bengals, who have won three in row but are also just 7-4 with losses to the Steelers and Browns among their defeats. The roller-coaster year has apparently been tough to take for some fans, including one in particular.
On Wednesday, a fan posted an emotional and tear-filled rant about the team and quarterback Joe Burrow after getting her wisdom teeth removed that’s gone viral.
“I had my wisdom teeth removed on Tuesday. ‘Apparently’ these are my thoughts going into Week 11… Go Bengals!” Haven Wolfe captioned the video on Facebook. The video soon took off with Wolfe trying to share her thoughts on Burrow.
“I know he’s got a girlfriend, and I’m happy for him. But I’m not happy for me!” she said. “He’s pretty but dang it he’s talented and let’s be honest I go for ambition not looks.”
“We play the Titans on Sunday and Ja’Marr Chase isn’t even a sure thing and I miss him,” she continued in the video, which was clearly taken before the Bengals beat the Titans, 20-16, on Sunday. “But then, even if we get past that one then we got the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes and he’s so good and everyone knows it.”
“I hate to use the words ‘for sure’ but I’m optimistic,” Bengals coach Zac Taylor said of Chase.
The fan also has reason to feel optimistic about the game against Kansas City since the Bengals knocked off the Chiefs twice last season, including in the AFC Championship. Chase’s return no doubt helps, too. In the seven games he played this season, he had 47 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns.
That should at least bring about a smile after getting her wisdom teeth yanked.
