    I have to enjoy it while it lasts, so here's a thread for those Bengals fans out there. 2-0!!! First place!!!
    They played a pretty good game against Baltimore, and amazingly the bad breaks never surfaced aside from Warrick's fumble on the punt. I kept waiting for it to unravel but it didn't.
    If you look at the next few games on the schedule, they are certainly winnable. Could it finally be a winning season?!

    Yes, things are looking good for our team so far. Keep those fingers crossed.
    I've stuck with this team through the good and the bad, and it would be nice for them to recapture the glory days of the 80's, but that still might be a bit premature.
    I'm just happy to see someone other than myself admit to being a fan. [​IMG]

    Finally, I look like a genius on the Pick 'em games... [​IMG]
    Hopefully the Bucs/Bengals game I have tickets for in December will be a Super Bowl preview...
    Okay, maybe THAT's going a little far... [​IMG]

    Could you Bengals fans arrange to have Scott Mitchell sent back to Detroit? We are running out of quarterbacks. [​IMG] I did not think it was possible for anyone to throw 7 interceptions in one game. [​IMG]
    The Bengals and the Chargers are the early positive surprises. As for negative surprises, Baltimore, Tennessee and Minnesota have problems.
    One preseason playoff contender that looks even better than suspected is Miami. Fiedler is healthy, so their offense looks better than last season. With their excellent defense, the Dolphins have become a real Super Bowl contender.

    I hope so. I grew up in south Florida, and I've always been a Dolphins fan despite living in Cincinnati for the past nine years. Then again, considering the Bengals' past nine years, it hasn't been all that hard not to root for them. The sports stations here are literally in shock. They've been bashing the Bengals for so long, they have no clue what to talk about. Most of the talk during the drive to work this morning revolved around how bad the Ravens must really be, since that obviously has to be the explanation...right?
    My favorite postgame quote of this young season:
    "He got it done, and that is the bottom line," Miami tight end Hunter Goodwin said. "We've got a lot of guys on this team like Jay [Fiedler]. Guys who aren't always pretty, but they get it done. At the end of the day, what do you want? A beautiful loss or an ugly win? I guess if you're talking about a woman, I want a pretty woman. But I also want one who's going to get it done."

    He obviously misinterpreted what it means to "be bullish."

    My Jags are 2-0 as well. Nobody thought the Bengals and Jags would ever be leading the AFC Central. Its still very early in the season though. With Fred Taylor going down its starting to look like last year again.

    I predicted 6-10 for the Mighty Bears this year, and after this week's win over the Vikings I still think that's about right.
    Go Bears!

    We'd rather have Mitchell than Akili Smith. We are used to booing Mitchell, so we could start right away. With Smith, we would probably have to wait until at least the second quarter before the booing could begin. [​IMG]
