    Bengals run the ball a ton in the first half and go 3 and out 3 times.

    2nd half they throw it and score 21 points.

    I have a bad feeling this one is going to be ugly.

    Spread them out and use Scott and Leonard as emergency dump offs out of the backfield and I can see them having some success. Try to pound the ball over and over and it could end up being a long day.

    It's way to early for a game to be a must-win, but this game should give us a good barometer of where this season is heading. After being completely mishandled last week (the score doesn't even do justice, IMO), we're at home playing a good team we beat twice last season.

    Entering this season, I had my doubts about this team -- when you talk about the parity of the NFL, our difficult schedule, and the Bengals ineptitude when it comes to consistency and expectations over all. So a loss today wouldn't shock me by any means, but it would definitely put a wrench into the postseason talk.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Would love to see Scott mixed in here today. Ravens were surprised by Benson last season they won't make the same mistake again. Ray Lewis talked about Benson's patience this week with the media. Throwing Scott's style at them for 10 -12 touches will help keep them off balance.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Why did they go with Scott instead of Benson on that 3rd &1? Doesn't make a lot of sense.

    They've tried to run Benson outside, now they send Scott up the middle. Uh... huh.

    Benson looking very 2009 which answers all the haters that said he would regress in 2010.

    Did anyone read Mel Kiper's take on Carson coming out of the draft? Via Lance's Blog.

    Mel on Carson....back then
    From Mel Kiper's 2003 Draft Report
    Negatives: Lacks a quick arm like Elway or Mike Vick and has some windup and three-quarters arm delivery. Forces ball, making dumb mistakes at times. Doesn't have much personality or fire and is a marginal leader, who seems to lack the persona to attract teammates as followers. Average scrambler. Has short accuracy and is inconsistent on short-to-medium and long passes. Erratic, hot-and-cold player who lacks velocity on deep out. Does not have great instincts and intelligence or IQ. Streaky and loses poise and confidence. Can improve technique and accuracy. Slow reactor. Lacks field vision. Better in rhythm system. Ran a limited offense and loses accuracy when pressured, but he will throw away and take a sack. Good but not great arm. Has questionable mental toughness and is questionable at handling pressure. Tends to bird-dog his primary receiver.

    Carson is lucky he doesn't have about 7 INTs so far. He's making some awful throws.

    7 INTs is pretty rough. I can really only see 2 INTs. But with that said, he should also have atleast 2 TDs. I don't know how he missed CJ in the endzone. Palmer's not exactly proving his critics wrong with this game that's been full of missed opportunities.

    Concerning the Ravens, is Flacco really their future QB? He looks like Kyler Boller back there.

    The Ravens make adjustments, the Bengals don't.

    TD Ravens.

    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

    Well, I've never been above hyperbole in the heat if a post. :

    I've never been very impressed with him.

    And as I type that, The Ravens go ahead 7-6. Aye.

    Have they even gone no huddle at all today. Frustrating not being able to move the ball at all whether its the Ravens or not.

    They're going to regret not getting in the end zone. It's 15-10, but there's plenty of time.
