I feel so bad for you. You must be the only Bungles fan left standing. Well, your guys always have a shot at taking one from the Stillers.

May your faith be rewarded (at some other team's expense).

Go Steeler!

I just returned to Boulder this morning from "The Jungle". True fans exist in Cincinnati. They have waited a long time and have endured much. No need to feel sorry. I feel confident a reward awaits the true Bengal fans and the future will be sweet.A few observations;

1. The roar is back. PBS (Paul Brown Stadium) will rock this season.

2. Carson Palmer is the real deal. His performance last night was eye-opening.

3. Marvin Lewis is the real deal

4. I think we have a quarterback controversy on the horizon

I will also suggest you fans in Pittsburgh take ample notice of one final fact. One week after the Lions dominated the Steelers the Lions were summarily thumped in Cincinnati. Yes, I know....it's merely the pre-season.

"Who dey"

I always thought if the Bengals played their 16 game schedule against the Steelers the Bengals record would be at least 8-8. Judging by the Steeler first team play last night, it may be a long season for the black and gold.

Yes, it is only pre-season.

Marvin Lewis, why is that name familiar? Oh yes, former Steeler defensive coach.

How many early first round draft picks do the Bengals need before they field a competitive team? Maybe this is the year the faithful will be rewarded before being eliminated by the Stillers in the play-offs [img]tongue.gif[/img] .

I must admit my working for the Brown family is odd.

I grew up in Pittsburgh! Began my career in 1965 at the age of eight at Seven Springs with Lars.

palmer is a QB out of the mold of troy aikman. remember how aikman got hammered around those first couple years in dallas? he took a lot of punishment and big-time losing until johnson got things turned around with some competent coaching and strong drafts.

hope carson has the mental make-up to hang in and endure the slings and arrows of rebuilding. but mostly, hope the O-line can step up and protect.

ryan,

I think your analysis is dead on. I think the theory is that Kitna will be the guy for a while and that will give the team time to strengthen and mature the O-line.

Rusty, since you've had a close association with the Brown family, I can understand why you've become a Bengal fan. Most native Pittsburghers stay loyal to the home team regardless of geographic living circumstances.

Also, I can imagine that Steeler fans are almost as insufferable as Cowboy fans. Most folks only know these teams because of their winning records of the last three decades. The Steelers went at least as many decades as a bottom deweller so I do understand and appreciate your optimism and frustation.

Ryan, are you an Ohio transplant? Shouldn't you be wondering when the NFL will award a team to LA? Al Davis' bunch never was a good fit and in my old mind, the Rams should still be in LA. Say what you want about Modale, at least he left the Browns name in Cleveland and in the State where the family still runs a football team.

Hey I'm a Steeler fan. I'll defend Cowher's antics and vilify your coach for doing the same. I'll protest 'cheap shot' when the other team's players make a questionable play and smile when the Steelers get away with one. It's just entertaianment but so much more. In the 70's when the Steelers had their best success, the Steel industry was in sharp decline. By the end of the decade Pittsburgh would cease to be the steel making center of the world. Nearly 50,000 steelworkers would lose their jobs and tens of thousands more in related industries would also be forced into unemployment. The Steelers became a symbol of hope and civic pride, a tonic for the desperate economoic times.

Sorry to go on so. Good luck Bengals, Good luck Browns, Good luck Ravens. I hate you all. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

Cowher is the best Stiller coach since Chuck Noll. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
