This trade news made my day. Great day to be a Bengals fan. This next draft should be very interesting. What do we draft? Best available, O-line, cornerback, safety, running back, thoughts?
Carson should be boo'd. He took a bunch of money up front in a huge deal, stuck it in his bank, and then quit on our team. Obviously it worked out really well for us since Carson had started to suck and we got a new QB, but I'd boo him just for quitting.
It would be odd if the Bengals met the Raiders in a wild card game this season...winner advances, consolation prize is Oakland's #1.

What if this trade allows the Bengals to add a Trent Richardson type at running back? Wow.
Great move, by Mike Brown.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
Who else is really looking forward to seeing how Carson looks?
Anyone bold enough to predict how well he does?
Considering how things have turned out, we should be hoping he can lead the Raiders to the playoffs.
I am actually glad Carson forced the Bengals hand here. It was evident that he was trending in the wrong direction but with the financial commitment and "franchise QB title" the Bengals weren't going to head in another direction. Many teams too often hold onto aging QB's for too long because of the aforementioned aspects. Ever since his elbow injury I thought the Bengals should have invested a 2-3-4th round pick on a backup QB to groom. Until Carson gave his ultimatum the Bengals weren't going to head in that direction.
Its only icing on the cake to know that the Bengals will have two extra high draft picks as well as some serious cap space heading into the next few years. Oh yea, and a young team that is getting better each and every week.
