    second law of Cincy-dynamics

    with every smart Bengals move, the Reds do something dumber

    now that the Bengals used up dead cap space on a CPalmer extension, I'm expecting something incredibly bad, soon

    like a DanO extension bad

    I doubt it will be a DanO extension, but I could see the new ownership group finally being approved and they leave Obie in place for the final season of his contract.

    Another wasted year, just what we need! g0 r3dZ!1!!

    This year is not wasted no matter how you look at it. New, is new.

    FWIW, Palmer is the most overrated QB since..........well Boomer. He simply isn't that good. Get pressure on him and he melts. The Bengals have one of the worst D's in the game and are a weakening OL away from a much worse offense.

    Does Cincinnati love flukes that much?

    All I have to say about that is - for a guy with lots of lines out, DanO isn't getting any nibbles on the bait.

    IMO - It's the quiet before the storm.

    BUT - it's going to be too late for 2006.

    Boomer wasn't overrated? If the Bengals had a good QB during the 80's with that top notch OL they had, they would have won the 88 Super Bowl and probably made the playoffs in 86 and 89. Boomer simply wasn't that good and their defense wasn't anything special to makeup for it.

    Palmer likewise, is playing behind a OL that has improved from last year and to no surprise, have Palmer's stats. But can that OL play as well next year and into the future without a defense?

    If the Bengals defense doesn't get better, things will go downhill and in a hurry.

    Just b/c Boomer was overrated doesn't mean Carson Palmer is. Palmer has already surpassed anything Boomer ever did statistics wise(over a single season) and he is only in his second season.

    Stick with being a baseball fan Aronchis......you seriously lack knowledge about football.

    This defense you say is awful and won't get better his very young. Its leading safety has been out since week 3. Its other safety has missed pretty much the whole year.

    Its future rushing LB missed half the season and several other key players have missed huge amounts of time. Don't forget that Lewis a a DEFENSIVE specialist and this defense will be a top rated one in ayear or two.

    As to Palmer and Boomer.....yeah, right. Not sure you watch much football.

    If not for Jerry Rice and a first quater broken leg by their top defensive player, the Boomer led Bengals likely would have beaten Joe Montana.

    Not to mention Lewis Billups' dropped interception in the endzone.

    Dang it. I promised myself I'd never mention that again.

    Have you been WATCHING? I don't see how anyone who's actually watched Palmer play this year could say these types of things.

    Me either, MWM. His numbers are right up there with Brady and Manning. And he runs too!

    And, for what it's worth, every good QB needs a good OL... without it, you'd never know if he's good or not because no QB, even a good one, can pass if he's on the ground every other play. A good OL allows a good QB to show just how good he is.

    Um....no. That would be Ben Roethlisberger. He of the 12 of 15 for 160 yards and a TD each week fame.

    If you think Carson Palmer is overrated, you need to wipe your eyes with that ugly yellow towel you probably sleep with.

    I'll probably get murdered for saying this, but Joe Montana is probably the most overrated QB of all time. Put him on any other team and they don't win anything. Put him on the those late 80s Broncos teams and Cleveland plays in a few Super Bowls.

    How many titles would Elway have had playing for the Niners?
