So should we root for them to win a playoff game or suck and get a high 2nd rounder?
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
Incredible news. Wow. Either way - 2 1st rounders or a first & a second - is a goo deal.
My three favorite NFL teams have always been (since the late 1960s) (1) the Raiders, (2) the Bengals, and (3) the Packers. I am therefore thrilled for the Bengals but, my gosh, is Al Davis making trades from his grave?
Al Davis was brilliant when he was in his prime but he most definitely had not been in his prime during the last decade. This trade smacks of "Just win baby this year and forget all the seasons to come." I'm guessing that it takes Palmer at least a few games to get in mid-season form and I question how good his mid-season form is anymore.
A terrific trade for the Bengals.
"Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
Boy, the Bengals sure came out of all this smelling like a rose.
Taking AJ Green in the draft was a no-brainer, but having Dalton still available at #2 was luck. Then for a west coast team that's contending for the playoffs have their starting QB get hurt and come knocking for Palmer is a fortuitous turn of events. I'd like to say that Brown was smart, but there is a big healthy dose of luck in there too.
This may be the greatest non-gameday for Bengal fans in the last 20 years.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
