As I said before, if Lima Bean Sweed holds onto that ball in the endzone, this isn't even a subject right now.

Remember when the media was crowning the Ravens after beating San Diego? Well, things aren't so rosy now is it?

I cried 2006 repeat when I seen the Steelers literally bungle the game away in Cincy. Well, turns out things aren't so bad.

But in the immortal words of Dennis Green: "If you wanna crown 'em then Crown their ass!"
I'm not playing the "if" game or crowning them with anything. All I'm saying is that we're in teh 2nd quarter of the 2009 season and right now Cincy is showing that A-they can run the ball; B-they can defend the pass; and C-they do not give up when their backs are against teh wall near the end of the game. They seem to be improving with each game.

eh...I'd rather be chasing the Bungles than the Ravens. I have complete confidence that they'll screw it up coming down the stretch.

And yet, if Limas Sweed holds on to that TD and the D doesn't have a meltdown at the end, the Steelers would have blown them out, because they dominated that game in every aspect up until the end.

They are 4-1 due to a lot of luck and some boneheaded plays by their opposition. They are NOT as good as their record.

Sorry, the Bengals still suck...they'll have a mid-season collapse and end up 8-8. And I've said all along the Rats are incredibly overrated.

EVERY couple of years, either the Clowns or the Bungles rise up and pretend to be an actual NFL team.

In 2005 it was the Bungles. In 2007, it was the Clowns. In 2009, it's the Bungles again.. Hey, I see a pattern here. Good news for Clowns' fans, they probably won't suck in 2011.

Have to admit that I started to well-up when the cameras focused on Zimmer at the end of the game.The game`s over.....now back to the terrible reality.
Yeah congrats to the Bengals.
That the AFC North is a more competitive division is surely a good thing.

I think any team that starts out 3-0 within the division and is 4-1 overall (losing on a prayer play) has to be considered legit and a contender. Sure, week 5 is not a determination of who is going to be in the Superbowl, but right now the Bengals found a way to beat all of us in the AFC North, so they are the best team. The Steelers weren't the number one team going into the playoffs last year, and the Ravens weren't number one going into the year they won the Superbowl. But give at least a little respect to a team that has put it together for the first 5 weeks and is looking very tough.

Everyone here is "one play here, one play there" from being 5-0 or 0-5. The Ravens missed 2 passes to Clayton in the past 2 weeks to pick up their 2 losses. The Steelers lose on a last minute play vs the bungles and win with one of the best kickers missing 2 easy FGs agains the Titans. Everyone could have a different record, but in the end only the scoreboard matters.

Here's to kicking the Bengals ass in Cincy and getting the two best teams in the AFC North back on top!

The bungles are like the Dolphins from last season, playing way beyond their talent. Wait until we adjust their perspective in a few weeks.

The Bengals look good. But they are beatable. They haven't dominated a game. I wouldn't be surprised to see them in the fight for the division/wild card at the end of this year.
