Well, here's a man bites dog story - Boomer Esiason praises the Steelers and slams the Bengals.

Boomer says Marvin Lewis was out of line with post-game statement on Ben, confirms the halftime fight between Chad Johnson and a coach took place (by comparison attempting to get Joey Porter to shut up is no problem at all) and then throws out this quote on Chad:

"He's a knucklehead. He's a wide receiver in the NFL. Not everybody can be Hines Ward. If I could have 100 Hines Wards on my team, we would never lose a game. The bottom line is that (Ward) is the quintessential, unselfish, tremendous football player that every wide receiver should be like. He never complains. He blocks downfield. He understands his role in the offense and he just loves winning."

WOW.....

As long as Boomer has been a loyal Bengals supporter, this is shocking.

I'm pretty surprised to see this coming out of Boomer.

Whoa....that is very very suprising because the Bengals could do no wrong all year....

Hell has officially frozen over.

Damn, I never thought I'd see a day were anything positive would come out of Boomer's mouth regarding The Steelers.

Yeah, I couldn't believe that Boomer would say that about his beloved Bengals.
Maybe he is smarter than I gave him credit for.

The truth does sometimes hurt..... real bad! :sofunny::point::sign09:

I am so glad that someone, especially one so looked up to in Bungleland, called out Lewis and his childish team.

And I too was shocked by his praises.....

I've never really liked Boomer all that much to be honest. I hate how he came out with those statements on Chad like he actually saw the incident occur or had some real confirmed source. If Chad really did do what Boomer said he did, then Boomer would be correct...but you can't jump to conclusions like that.

I'm no fan of either of them 2, but. Don't you think that Terry Bradshaw, and Dan Marino are the same way?
