Pssssst - Cartoon - you forgot one important little fact. The Bungles tank every season - they just can't help themselves. Once a Bungle, always a Bungle. Hope you enjoy the upcoming offseason, bud.

P.S. You have enough players at present, but by midseason, chances are half of 'em will be back in the pokey.

Yup, they supposedly learned the same lesson from the season before, when they beat the Steelers, crowned themselves Super Bowl champs, took most of the rest of the season off, and imploded in the locker room during the playoff loss to the Steelers.

This sounds a lot like Mike Vick saying year after year after year "THIS is the year I step up and take responsibility for my actions and the Falcons take the next step" (and see how well that's worked for him?).

Bungals are a 9-7 team at best.

OK....

For honesty's sake...

Quote:
Not much has changed in the AFC North, which Palmer considers to be the best division in pro football. Not surprisingly, Palmer considers the Bengals the team to beat.
"We expect to win our division and make a run at it,'' Palmer said. "We've got enough players, we've got good coaches and we've got some experience. We feel like we've got as good a chance as anybody at making a run at it.
"Every year it seems like the division gets tougher. In my opinion, it's the best division in football. It's a good thing we're in it because it gets you ready for the long haul of the season and for the playoffs.''

That should be EVERYONE's expectation every year. So I really don't have a problem with him saying that.

And here is where he is absolutely right...

Well....here is the drama....Carson Palmer is a top ranked QB hoping to get what he thinks top ranked QBs should get -the ring. Hey people can dream.

I'm thinking more 6-10. Clowns though will be like 2-14, 3-13 though.

With all the off-field distractions, this could very well be a possibility. For all you Bengal fans saying be careful...At the end of the season you might be like this:

Sorry to burst your bubble, but a Pittsburgh writer wrote the article for a Pittsburgh newspaper. I don't see why someone in Pittsburgh would want to make excuses for a Bengals player.

Unless the guy was a Bengals fan in disguise trying to piss us off.
