    1st in 2011 and 2nd in 2012 round guaranteed? Sounds good to me.
    Thank goodness for baseball.

    So should we root for them to win a playoff game or suck and get a high 2nd rounder?

    I wouldn't boo Carson. He gave us a lot of years, many of them good. He left his left knee and right elbow on the PBS turf. You may not have liked the way he went about leaving, but he helped us get our QB of the future and possibly two more first round picks. I think he deserves a nice standing O.

    I thought it was just if they MADE the playoffs.

    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

    The chances of that happening are virtually nil. He'll be booed heavily.

    I realize that and I think the people that do that are in the wrong in this case. They are probably the same people that aren't coming to Bengals games now because of Mike Brown.

    Incredible news. Wow. Either way - 2 1st rounders or a first & a second - is a goo deal.

    Will Mike Tolbert be a free agent? I'd make a run at him. Possibly another Michael Turner.

    Re: 2011 Bengals Discussion

    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.

    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.

    It's about
    the ball,
    the bat,
    the mitt,
    the bases,
    and the fans

    But they say, luck equals preparation plus opporunity. The Bengals, apparently, were prepared to take advantage of the opportunity this time

    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.

    This doesn't make sense. The people who aren't coming to Bengals games now because of Mike Brown are the same people who generally applauded Carson for his stance against the Bengals organization.
