    Did you see the coverages the Steelers were using?

    Chad and his gigantic pie-hole were a major reason why Chris Henry, TJ Houshmandzadeh, and Reggie Kelly were open. Pittsburgh was rolling their coverage Chad's way all day long and Carson burned 'em repeatedly by going the other way. That's the major reason we didn't hear Troy Polamalu's name called until the 4th quarter.

    As Marvin would say ... Chad did his job.

    And one of the times we heard his name was when Rudi laid him out on the way into the end zone.

    Chris Henry...IMO....has Randy Moss type ability.....hopefully without some of the attitude....although RM is not nearly as bad as TO is.

    We are so lucky to have Carson Palmer. Look who we're comparing him to... Peyton Manning. Whether he's truly better yet or not, considering his age, unbelievably lofty company.

    I know that you have to take anything heard on ESPN with a grain of salt, but hearing Palmer and multiple Super Bowl appearances mentioned together without any mention of him being traded did bring a smile to my face. We've been through so many bad seasons without any reason to hope that I find myself wanting to pinch myself to make sure this season isn't just some sort of dream that I'll wake up from only to find out that Akili is still the starting QB and we just won our 3rd game of the season.

    Cincinnati fans really do have something to cheer about; the now is great for the Bengals and the future definitely bright. With the Reds being just about the worst sports entertainment on earth right now, and a vanilla new ownership group on the horizon, it's important to relish the good stuff. I'm not a Bengals fan (not much of a football fan honestly), but I have really enjoyed watching this team. They are exciting.

    Vanilla is major part of Graters Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. I myself like Vanilla, it's what you do with it that makes it good.

    Curling and Slam Ball are way worse to watch than the Reds too.

    Well, we got that going for us, which is nice.

    2006 marketing slogan: "Reds baseball, way better than curling."
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Careful FCB. That's probably how they lured you into being a Reds fan. "look we have this exciting dynamic unstoppable franchise. gO rEDz!". You're going to end up a Bengals and Reds fan and let me tell you from personal experience, that is the road, while perhaps less traveled, that opens up into a festering dungheap of heartbreak and frustration.

    Having said that, Go Bengals!

    Ravens? Steelers? They've got pretty good defenses.

    What was the net result of that Bengals game against Jacksonville? Oh yeah, they lost. What's Herman Edwards always say - "You play to win the game"?

    Peyton Manning used put up all kinds of gaudy numbers back when he had to score 40 every game to win because the Colts defense stunk. It was fun to watch but it they couldn't get to the Super Bowl doing that. Now that Manning has a defense that can contribute, he can take advantage of teams dropping eight and daring the Colts to run on them. Edgerrin James, in a contract year, has to be delighted with how things worked out.

    Don't get me wrong - the Bengals are a good team right now, and if they keep that nucleus of offense together, eventually Marvin Lewis will turn the defense around, and Bengals fans will be celebrating a great team in a couple years. The Bengals remind me of where the Colts were in 2002 - which isn't a bad place to be.

    IIRC when it comes to the schedule, it's relatively set based on performance the previous year - if you're a first place team, you play the other first place teams in your conference (Pittsburgh, New England, San Diego), a selected opposite conference (NFC West), and home/away against your own division. Second place teams get second place teams, etc.

    For reference, the Bengals got the NFC North. While that's a tougher division now, the Bengals got Chicago and Minnesota early in the year before those teams got going, when the talk around the NFL was about how the NFC North looked to be the worst divison in the NFL.

    The Colts have played all the AFC playoff contenders save Denver & Kansas City and they'll play the top team in the NFC in a few weeks. And the Colts played the entire AFC North and went 4-0 against them, also.

    We were comparing qb's and their play, not comparing the Colts and Bengals. They played each other. Carson put up great numbers against arguably the top three defenses in the NFL, Peyton barely put up average numbers.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Palmer 68.7 PCT 3149 YDs 26 TD 7 INT
    Manning 68.4 PCT 2966 YDs 25 TD 8 INT

    How is Manning on a different planet? He had an insane year last year, but this year, Palmer has played better. Manning may be good at reading defenses, and things like that, but the stats don't lie. Palmer has played better - maybe not by alot, but still, he has played better.

    Can't give credit to the Bengals for their slow start?
