Cleveland isn't a "gimme" anymore so the Bengals could be 0-4 going into their bye week.

Bengals won't have Palmer back until at LEAST the Tampa game, so write it down: 0-4

Starting the season with the good possibility of not having Carson Palmer and ending the stretch at Indy, at Denver and then home vs Pittsburgh.......ouch.

Looks like a 10-6 year for the Bengals next year - but the Colts could be a hell of alot worse without the Edge in the backfield and Manning may have imploded by that point.

I still think the Bengals D-unit has alot of upside - its a very young group of players - and Sam Adams should provide a nice anchor on the D-Line.

ANY bengals 7 game win streak looks like crap to me. really? whats more likely to happen? a bengals 7 game win streak or manning "imploding" in the regular season? or did you just mean dungy resting him for the post season by that point?

not only a pats homer but a bengals homer???

What more credible..me being a Bengals homer or you being a a homer for their greatest rivals?

I think its clear who is more impartial.

whatever.

so.......back to the question you so effectively dodged...........whats more likely to happen? a bengals 7 game win streak or manning "imploding" in the regular season?

I think both of these things are likely to happen - im afraid I don't an exact % to hand - my odds-calculating supercomputer is on its annual holiday in Hawaii.

And as I think both things are lilely to happen, and the fact that they aren't mutually exclusive there is no reason to guess which is more likely to happen.

The middle stretch is very winnable for a team with the Bengals talent level and high potential for improvement on the D side of the ball.

I look at each game in its own context and ask myself who is most likely to win it - whether these wins come in a streak of 7 or not is irrelevant.

NM

ps If I had "effectively dodged" your initial question I doubt you would be asking me to answer it on your very next post.

i asked what is more likely to happen. nice cop out. since the laws of probability must be foreign to you i will make this simple for you:

the bengals are more likely to lose one out of 7 games than manning is to "fizzle out" (lol- you wish) in the regular season.

cant toot the patriots horn no more so now youre gonna play trumpet for the bengals?:sofunny:

Why can't I toot the Patriots horn 'no more'?

Last I heard they were still credible challengers for next years SB.

Anyway, this is the kind of stuff I expect to see in the blast furnace - try and increase the football content and lessen the childish sniping - its tedious.

If Carson Palmer rushes his injury, and the Bengals let him start on opening day before he's ready, they deserve to lose his services when he permanently injures his knee due to rushing back without proper rehab time.

I think the Browns are a couple of years away from being as good as the Bengals.

If you can get to 8-8 it would be a real achievement - you have an excellent coach and some nice FA pick-ups.

The fact is that the Bengals got past the 8-8 barrier a few years back.

yep... i'm hoping for eight wins... but i know one of 'em will come from beating the bungholes... back in 2003, the season finale against Cincinnati, when they needed to beat us to make it to the playoffs, our 4-11 team came in there and beat them 22-14... the 8-8 mark means nothing come game time... especially with the rivalry... this is the same browns team that beat the steelers 33-13 in pittsburgh earlier that year... and lost to the super bowl bound patriots by a score 3-9...

http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e250/veryprofane/57067_suggsBengals120.jpg

Lee Suggs had his best game (only one so far) an explosive performance yielded a number of browns records... carried the ball 26 times for 186 yards and two touchdowns... most yards by a browns running back in 20 years (Earnest Byner, 1984)... 78-yard touchdown romp was the longest run from scrimmage since Greg Pruitt's 78-yarder in 1977.

Wow, SteelCityMan...I didn't expect the non-homerism, 10-11 wins sounds fair...depending on the status of Palmer, I think the Bengals will amass anywhere from 9-12 wins.

If Palmer should miss a few games in the beginning, I won't be all that worried. Whoever we end up having as our backup QB, be it Joey Harrington or Jamie Martin will surely catch the Kitna-itis.

Kitna-itis: Above average success from a mediocre QB due to the immense amount of talent surrounding him.

That being said, if Palmer misses any games, I believe we will be right around .500 until he returns.

I'm just making some early predictions. You guys almost knocked us out of the playoffs. If Palmer gets back there might be yet again another playoff match up with the Steelers and Bengals. points to you for being classy with that post.

I'd say 9-7/10-6. Keep in mind though, the winner of the AFC North this year may go 9-7 due to us playing top divisions in the AFC and NFC. I highly doubt two AFC North teams will be heading to the playoffs this year...

1.Pittsburgh and Cincinnati
2.Pittsburgh
3.Cincinnati

I think it will be tough to get both teams into the playoffs because of schedules, but then again it's gonna be a pretty tough year for the rest of the AFC too.

Cleveland isn't a "gimme" anymore so the Bengals could be 0-4 going into their bye week.

You may not be able to "Buy a Championship" .......but they may have just bought a couple of wins against the kittyCats.

Cont'd from above...........

But in all fairness to Cin-Cin, bringing a team together to the point of gelling as a true team, with all of the FA's that Cleveland added, THAT will be their biggest hurdle. I can still pretty easily see Cin-Cin going 10-12 in the "W" column with a probable sweep of Baltimore and a "Highly" possible sweep against Cleveland. If Cleveland wins against Cin-Cin.....it will only be once this year....not a chance of a sweep.
