    I haven't been impressed by New England, just embarassed by the play of the Bengals.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    You should be. The Patriots are just a better football team.

    Hard to believe that is the same team that was shutout at home by Denver last week.

    Sam Adams is really proving to be no help at all. I think his knee is hurt but he's suiting up every week.

    Good to see Corey Dillon is still a class act. I know they love him in New England, but I just really can't stand the dude, and he showed why yet again today. He's displaying like he was a major player in our butt whooping.

    The D is still not ready for prime time. We have no linebackers, none. As soon as I saw us starting Caleb Miller today, I knew it was trouble.

    But I guess this butt kicking is so bad, you just write it off as a bad day and move on.

    I wouldn't let one game color my perception of NE. They were just shut out at home by Denver last week. One week makes a season for neither team. I do have concerns with our O-Line, Palmer's fumbling (which is O-Line problems) and our D is still not improved.

    That's part of the story. One that is probably not fixable this year is the linebacker position. Pollack's injury and Odell's stupidity has clinched that.

    On the mental level, it appears that the Pats came to town with something to prove and the Bengals didn't have an answer.

    You'd be hard-pressed to find one worse, although I've seen just as bad out of some other teams recently.

    They are getting absolutely shredded.
    Yes, they are.

    If they had gotten on any sort of high horse from reading their press clippings and the "power rankings" that people put out, this should bring them down a notch or two. They've got two weeks to think about what just happened.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Sorry everybody, it's my fault.

    In the big picture, when the schedule was handed out, dire predictions were made, esp. with the health of Palmer, so 3-1 is good, esp. with two road wins and division wins in the hip pocket.

    But then, the D is still crappy and our linebacking corp has got to be near the worst in the league with the current bodies we have.

    If you can't get even a decent pass rush you aren't going to win much in the NFL. It's gonna be a long season if someone doesn't step up in the front seven.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I said the same thing earlier today regarding the pass rush. But I wouldn't say it's going to be a long season as much as a quick exit from the playoffs. this year's defesnes is better than last year's, but only marginally and not enough to say they're a good defense. They're still a liability. Quite honestly, they miss Odell Thurman. They won't admit it, but he was their best defensive player last year. They're too easy to run on as well. This is a playoff team, but not a Super Bowl team. They remind me of the Colts from 2-3 years ago. They're one good dfensive end and one good linebacker from being a Super Bowl team. I'm still a little irritated at Marvin for the Chris Perry pick. And now not having Pollack (freak injury) means two of the last three first round picks are not contributing at all to this team. It's tough to plu a hole as wide open as the Bengals defense without getting performance from top round draft picks.

    I'd disagree with that. This Patriots squad is slow on both sides of the football. If the Bengals could've gotten their heads out of their behinds and blocked effectively, they should've run up and down the field on these guys.

    Bengals problem is twofold -- they're extremely soft at linebacker and nobody they have playing right now is gap-filling on defense. They're getting gashed by big runs because they don't have linebackers filling holes at the line of scrimmage and stretching plays out. It's all north-south running, and it's killing the team.

    Second, they're missing Rich Braham as the anchor on the offensive line. With the more exotic defenses (Pittsburgh, NE), his experience is needed to call protections out and keep the line focused on assignments. Plus, they've been much more susceptible to pass rushes up the gut, which forces Palmer one direction or the other in the pocket and into the arms of a DE.

    Good news, though -- you get the Bucs next week, and they've looked depressingly hideous the first 4 weeks of the season.
