carson just cant skip over the healing and rehab phase of his injury. its just reality
I'm not knocking Culpepper's playing ability in regards to his signing with Miami...I am saying that there should at least be some questions surrounding his health going into next season, especially since he's a mobile QB. Weren't original reports saying that Culpepper would miss half of next season, too? What happened to that? If he's recovering quicker than expected, then why isn't that a possibility for Carson too?

I agree there's alot of questions surrounding Daunte's health for this year. The kind of injury he had and when it occured.. you just cant rush a guy like that back and try to harness him in.

Now they are saying culpepper may or may not be ready to go ... is all smoke to me,
Plain and simple truth is the Dolphins and Bengals both better have someone ready to go in case. I dont know Palmers particualr situation but i would presume that if Culpepper's injury happened earlier in the season and he is questionable, since Plamers happened aot later that he would prolly need more time to heal.

Palmer's injury wasn't nearly as bad as Culpepper's. Culpepper tore his ACL, MCL and PCL, Palmer tore only his ACL and MCL. The PCL is by far the worst because it requires you to rehab much more slowly and sometimes it requires a second surgery a year after the initial surgery in order to fix the other ligaments. Therefore, Culpepper's injury requires much more recovery time. If anybody's injury was career threatening, it was Culpepper's.

Is Akili Smith still available?
On Palmer...
Okay, I couldn't get through the entire thread before commenting, and this post requires a response. No one, especially Steelers fans know that Palmer's knee is "way worse" than expected. I think the fact that they didn't overspend to bring in Martin or Harrington shows they feel pretty confident about him being back on time, much like what they've been saying for months now.

On Kitna...
The stories about Chad getting into that fight with Hue Jackson were "fabricated" in Marvin's words. And after all of that took place, he backed Chad and said publicly that the leak will not be with the team next year. Just recently I heard that Kitna was that "leak", so no matter how good of a back-up he was, Marvin won't keep those guys around. And seeing how the Bengals just extended Chad's contract through 2011, I think it's safe to say that that story was indeed "fabricated", if not at the very least "imbellished".

On Steelers Fans...
I'm not on here to be a prick or stir the pot, I just like to hear other teams opinions, regardless of how "blow hardish" they can be at times. But anyone who thinks the Bengals success last year was a fluke, doesn't know football. It's fine to have your Steeler Pride and all, but don't embarass yourself by saying "the Bengals suck". That's just plain stupid. They have arguably the best offense in the NFL now that Edge is in Arizona, and the majority of their defense is young, the same defense that played all of last year without either of their starting safties. So if you want to bash the Bengals, go right ahead. But also realize they beat you at home and lead you at half in the playoffs, something no other team managed to do. Infact, you could argue that the Bengals game was the 2nd toughest playoff game you had, and that was without Palmer.

So here's to an exciting season and hopefully two great games betweeen Cincy & Pittsburgh. I hope for competition sake, Carson is healthy for both games. Do you really want to beat the Bengals without Palmer?
