    Good grief... he took prescribed medication and he's supposed to be lumped in as a roider now? Wow.

    The rules are in place to keep people from taking performance enhancing drugs, not be paranoid of every prescription written by a doctor.
    No, claiming ignorance and try to use it to get out of a suspension isnt a defense. He might be telling the truth that he didnt mean to cheat, but its his fault that he didnt clear it with the league and do his home work.

    He could be taking a masking agent. He could be doing a ton of things. We only have his word to go off of because the NFL will never admit what he took. They dont speak on that matter EVER.

    As silly as the drug testing might be, the rules are rules, and when you are in the NFL you should be "paranoid" to know what you are taking. They arent left in the dark on these issues. I'm sure they could call any number of people and get it cleared up fairly easy before he takes it. It certainly would be quicker than the 4 game suspension he could be looking at unless something magical changes before its handed down.

    I don't have the option of watching both, unfortunately. But I'll be watching the Bengals/Pats game and keeping up with the Reds game occasionally too. WHO DEY! and GO REDS!

    Long way to go. You can't read anything into a week one game, I think we'll know where they stand much more after they play Baltimore. If they suck at home against Baltimore then I'd probably agree with you.

    That was half way tongue in cheek. I've had a feeling it will be an ugly season though, hopefully I'm wrong.

    Eh, it's just one game. The Bengals D is built to compete in the AFC North, and they won't do well against spread offenses. Two of their three linebackers aren't fast enough for that kind of offense.

    As long as Zimmer no longer puts a LB on a slot receiver, half the problem will be eliminated. I still can't get over how many times Welker was "covered" by Dhani Jones on Sunday. Oh, and Mauluaga is horrible in coverage. Horrible.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    I've heard a lot of Bengals fans say "Well, it WAS the Patriots." To me, that's not ok. Our schedule this year is beyond brutal. We have to win, or at least be competitive, in these kind of games. And this team has shown me nothing to indicate it can do that.

    I don't think I'm reading too much into one game.

    This team is incapable of putting heat on the opposing QB, the linebackers are average at best, and for all the talent on offense, they've shown no indication whatsoever they can take it to another level. It's not going to be a bad offense by any stretch, but is it going to be good enough to march up and down the field on the Steelers and the Ravens of the world? No way.

    This is a 3rd place team this year. I'll glad eat crow if I'm wrong, but this team is set up to fail. You can't build your team around a bunch of high-maintenance, attention-needy, drama queens with low character and expect to knock off the elite.

    Oh for heaven's sake. That whole second paragraph is just nonsense. Chad OchoCinco and Terrell Owen's character had nothing to do with the Defense giving up 24 points and special teams another 7 and Carson another 7. Dhani Jones is supposed to be a high character guy which did him a whole lot of good as his character was trailing behind Wes Welker by 5 yards.

    Are you suggesting that the coaching staff had to take time away from teaching the team to make a freaking tackle to suit the needs of one of the drama queens? If so they should all be fired for wasting there time and for what its worth, I've yet to hear or see a single thing which shows TO and Chad aren't totally invested into being better players.

    They may very well be a 3rd place team, but it will have more to do with execution and talent than character.
