The National Football League has become the league of political correctness. No teams truly hate each other. With players switching uniforms every off-season and the League office cutting down on TD celebrations and taunting it seems like teams just play against each other for 3 hours, pack up and leave.

That's why the NFL needs the Steelers and the Bengals-a true rivarly between two teams that are young and should battle against each other for the next several years.

This is the best rivalary in football now. Better than GB/Chicago, KC/Denver. This is great for the league and Steelers fans. Face it, beating the Ravens became old and Cleveland isn't Cleveland.
What are your thoughts??

I don't see this becoming a great rivalry, I would like it to be though. I just think that the Bungles will turn back into the Bungles after this year, they have too many volatile personalities in the locker room. I hope they prove me wrong, b/c I mean, who doesn't want to see a great rivalry, but these guys are garbage without Palmer, and we all know you never truly recover from a knee injusry that bad.

The thing that is going to kill the bungles 1 year dynasty in the AFC North is their O Line. Four starters on their line hit free agency after this year, and they won't have the cap space to sign more than 2. Palmer is a very good QB, but without an O line, he's going to be ineffective.

Palmer is very unique. I think he'll be fine if he's doesn't rush himself in this season.

As to Lyn's post yes the Ex-Browns are still kinda on top but I see the Steeler-Cincy rivalry looking more like a contemporary version of the 70's Raider rivalry soon.

I hope Palmer comes back (well five games into the season) because he has a truly sweet delivery - over the top. He's the better QB than Ben but Ben is on the better team.

Teams win championships.

Well cutting down on the TD celebrations just leads me to think that the NFL is the NO FUN LEAGUE.

You mean like Willis McGahee?

It's very possible, and I hope Carson can do it. This isn't, and never will be "the best rivalry in football" but the games are fun to watch, and seeing Ben vs. Carson twice a year should be entertaining for a good while.

Edgerrin James had much the same injury and came back better than ever. :smile:

I do believe over the years, the NFL has "pussified" the game somewhat. Bring back the rough and tumble intensity that was so prevalent in the 70's!

You knew I was expecting that. I had a stopwatch on it. Trojan homies...what are ya going to do with them? :dang:

And I'm even taping Saints preseason this year...assuming he doesn't holdout. That's nothing short of a miracle.

I wouldn't say the better QB,they have two different styles of play.I'd say Palmer is the better pocket passer.

Both QB's are in systems that fit thier styles perfectly,which is a big help.

I too hope Palmer makes a full recovery,I love watching him play...he throws a better ball than Manning (both of em) IMHO.
