    I think they can beat Miami if they actually got things together. Pittsburgh will be ugly though.

Couldn't be Pittsburgh, Cleveland would be pointless because they are generally even worse ... maybe Indy, it's not that much farther distance wise than Cincinnati for me, but it's weird to think about.

    I really could see Brown moving the team, especially if he gets out of the lease early. What on earth would Cincinnati do with a huge NFL stadium, no team, and little likelihood of getting a new team?


    It works for Pitt.

    If Billick would take it, although working for Fox I kinda wonder if Thom Brenamen would be our friend in this.

    I actually enjoy Billick as a broadcaster. He's very articulate and the Bengals-Bucs game I was very impressed with how well he and Thom worked together.

    They also share the stadium with a very successful NFL team. There is no way the Bearcats could sustain PBS on their own.

    That 1999 team was terrible...no wasted talent at all...just no talent.

    One game they almost win and then they looked horrible the rest of the year.

    How can Brown even consider getting out of his lease early the way he has it easy here. I don't think any other town would want this fool either.

    LA is the only place imaginable, but USC is king there (most LA fans follow the Chargers too). LA might be a good place to move a team, but would they really want one?

    Carson and Co. scored an opening drive TD for the first time in 13 games today, and then apparently decided they had put in a good day's work and have packed it in. 18 yards in their last three drives, all three being "three and out". The only other score was the fluke TD that should have been an INT.

    EDIT: Make that four straight "three and out" possessions and 17 total yards gained. They were -1 yard on this "drive".

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

    Then we have a defense that can't seem to stop guys when you have them pinned inside the 5 or 10.

    Offense, defense and special teams have all pretty much quit.

    With this performance, I think they have to clean house on the coaching staff.

    This is just abysmal.

    No matter how the game turns out,(not well I expect) I give Marvin credit for going for it on 4th and 1.

    Would have been easy to be ultra conservative and punt the ball away.

    Palmer shows his "Mr. Clutch" skills yet again, with another fine INT in the closing minutes.

    At least back in the 90s we didn't expect to compete, this is just a pathetic effort. Owens didn't extend at all for that ball.

    Hey, I've still got hockey.

    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

    If he didn't go for it in that situation, he might as well turned in his man-card along with his job as an NFL coach.

    I really like that route by TO.

    Yeah, TO did not do much in the 4th quarter either, with a drop and some questionable effort.
