    Well I think the fact that it's mid-November and people are still interested enough in the team to necessitate a second thread demonstrates how much they've exceeded expectations.

    No team I've ever rooted for has exceeded expectations as much as this one. I couldn't be happier with how things have turned out this year for them.

    I agree. Prior to this year, I had season tickets for the past six years, and like many, I non-renewed this past offseason. While I don't regret that decision one bit, I'm thoroughly enjoying this season because my expectations were so low, and through nine games, I'm thrilled to be wrong. FWIW, I did go to the Steelers game.

    There have been very few teams that were as fun to watch as these Bengals. You have youth, hope, and also exceeding expectation. This team reminds me a lot of the 2010 Reds. Just a pleasure to watch.

    Well AJ said he's a game-time decision, so I wouldn't rule him out just yet. Definitely a tough break for us, but we can still win a low-scoring, close ballgame even without him.

    The game this week doesn't just hinge on AJ. There's Dunlap, PacMan and others too.

    I don't like our chances without AJ but I'm going to watch it anyway...

    AJ, Clements, and Pacman all did not practice yesterday. Without all three, the Bengals should be 20 point underdogs. Who the hell is going to play CB?
    Go BLUE!!!

    Our defensive line can still get pressure on Flacco, and the Ravens aren't nearly good enough to ever be favored by 20 points over us. Certainly we're in a tough spot if those guys can't go, but I'd hardly say we don't have a shot. This same Ravens team has lost to Jacksonville, Seattle and Tennessee this season (all teams we've taken care of), so they're not exactly a juggernaut.

    Clements always takes Wednesday off, it a veteran's maintenance day for him. He was back today.

    I'm not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but what in the world was Gruden thinking running a reverse with AJ Green after his knee injury? That was insane. They were lucky that Green wasn't immediately lost for the year, and then they press their luck by running a play that puts a huge amount of pressure on his knees. It was so idiotic I darn near spit out my drink. To no one's surprise, at least not mine, Green didn't go in for another play that game.

    This is tough to say, but if I'm the Bengals, I don't play Green Sunday and I don't think twice about it. He's obviously amazing, but he's not 100% and there's an excellent chance he'll further his injury. Rest him for a week and let him come back close to normal.

    I don't see where that play was any worse than letting him run a route where he might run after the catch. If he can't run a reverse, then he can't run a route and shouldn't be on the field, which is what turned out to be the verdict.
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em
