I thought that a "trap game" was a game against a bad opponent sandwiched between 2 tough opponents. If my understanding is correct, then by definition can't be a "trap game" unless the bye is considered a tough opponent.

Warren Sapp once laughed at how fans say "you SHOULD beat this team". Sapp said that every team in the NFL has a chance to win each week. "Its not like you can schedule Austin Peay for homecoming week in the NFL", Sapp commented.
You are right about it being a league of parody. Meaning that it is a big joke with all the fines and stuff. It is actually a league of PARITY. Totally different meaning there. Oh oh, I must be joining the grammar police. Just thought that league of parody was a pretty funny thing.

Could we come out flat and then our offense proceeds to do everything within their power to be certain that we fall short of victory ? This could very well happen, as it has been our "style" at certain points as of late.

But i don't see it happening this week. No matter how "up" the Bungles may be for this game, they are an almost broken unit in terms of morale and from a coaching standpoint. (No one in that Locker room can possibly truly relish the fact that Marvin Lewis is still coaching there.)

I say if we are in the position to, we need to establish a good lead and let some guys rest. After this week we are through the gravy of our schedule and we've got to be healthy going into them.

Divisional games are never ho hums. The only reason I consider it a trap game is because of the toughness of the schedule coming up. They must stick to the one-game-at-a-time mentality.

If we play an average game on offense, we will win. Our defense will by fine, and our special teams should be fine.

So long as our offense doesn't turn it over multiple times and we manage to make a few plays here and there, I'll think we'll win fairly comfortably. The key is to avoid an implosion (see Jets last year, Eagles this year).

A trap game is any game in which the superior opponent (and their fans, by extension) assume an automatic win.

The Browns are an exclusion to this rule, since they are our bitches and have become an auto 2-3 wins a year (3 if they somehow make the playoffs).

This is a trap game, since the Bengals are not the Browns.

This is a trap game. All it takes is for the Steelers to get stupid and turn the ball over. Remember, everyone assumed the Raiders were an automatic win in 2006.
