well i guess this division is locked up, it's now only between the steelers and the bengals, but come on seriously, do the bengals got a real chance? i doubt it, they haven't proven shit so i'm giving it to the steelers cause they are more experienced and know what it takes to win.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Kyle Boller is likely to be out until the end of October with his injured right toe.

Team officials said Tuesday that Boller will not require surgery on the toe, but will need at least another three weeks to heal. The earliest he could return is Oct. 16 against the Cleveland Browns. But it's more likely he would be back Oct. 23 against the Chicago Bears or Oct. 31 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"The original prognosis is still the same," team spokesman Kevin Byrne said.

Boller, who was on crutches and wearing a cast Tuesday at the team's training complex, got a second opinion on Monday from the North Carolina foot specialist who treated linebacker Peter Boulware's turf toe last season.

The Ravens' 2003 first-round draft pick was injured in the 24-7 season opening loss to the Indianapolis Colts on a sack by defensive tackle Larry Triplett. Anthony Wright started Sunday in a 25-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Baltimore is off this week then host the New York Jets and go to Detroit before facing the Browns.

I'm telling you, Anthony Wright is a better QB than Boller...still, no...the Rats are done...but they were regardless.

Cincy is getting better, and they have stolen some games from us in the past. Every game is important in the NFL, and I'd like to win them all...why not? We won 15 last year, and we seem to be firing on all cylinders. Why not set that high and lofty goal?

If Wright doesnt start getting some protection, Kordell is gonna be in there by process of elimation via QB's on the sidelines in crutches!
