And if you want to talk championships, that's an entirely different conversation and Cincinnati isn't close to some other cities in title futility. In fact, when it comes right down to it, there are four cities that win the majority of MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL championships - New York, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles. Throw in runs of success by Detroit, Pittsburgh, Miami and Denver and there are 90 percent of all championships already spoken for. The rest of us are fighting for scraps and the occasional dream season. Consider:

Cleveland - the Indians haven't won a World Series since 1948; the Browns last won an NFL championship in 1964 and have never played in a Super Bowl; the Cavs have never won an NBA championship.

Buffalo - Bills last won the AFL championship in 1965; Sabres have never won the Stanley Cup

Washington, D.C. - Redskins last won Super Bowl in 1991; Wizards/Bullets won lone NBA championship in 1978; Capitals have never won the Stanley Cup; Nationals have never won the World Series

Charlotte - Panthers have never won a Super Bowl; Bobcats have never won an NBA championshop

Atlanta - Braves last won the World Series in 1995; Hawks last won the NBA championship in 1958; Falcons have never won a Super Bowl; city just lost NHL franchise to Winnepeg, it never won a Stanley Cup

Houston - Oilers won the AFL championship in 1960, no pro football team in the city has won anything since; Rockets last won NBA championships in 1994-1995; Astros have never won a World Series

Oakland - A's last won World Series in 1989; Raiders last won Super Bowl in 1983; Golden State Warriors last won NBA championship in 1975

Seattle - Mariners have never won a World Series; Seahawks have never won a Super Bowl; Supersonics won NBA championship in 1979 for city's first and only championship, the team has since relocated to Oklahoma City

Salt Lake City - Utah Jazz have never won NBA championship

Portland - Trailblazers won lone NBA championship in 1977

Toronto - Jays last won World Series in 1993; Maple Leafs last won Stanley Cup in 1967; Raptors have never won NBA championship

Montreal - Canadiens last won Stanley Cup in 1993; Expos never won a World Series and have since relocated to Washington

Calgary - Flames last won Stanley Cup in 1989

Vancouver - Canucks have never won Stanley Cup; Grizzlies never won an NBA championship and have since relocated to Memphis

Didn't the Green Bay Packers have a long dry spell from 1973 to early 90's?

There will be dancing in the streets.

It has amazed me for years that Mike Brown could grow up as the son of the most brilliant man in football, and have learned absolutely nothing.

A win in the first game isn't six or seven wins, but it's a step in that direction.

This team flat-out has some serious potential and promise. There will be growing pains this year, sure. But yesterday absolutely was fun to watch. Beating Cleveland made it better.

Oh, and so much for those in the national media predicting 0-16. You can't go 0-16 when you start out 1-0.

Sure 1-0 is better than 0-1, but when the backup quarterback has to score 14 points in the 4th quarter to win, how many games are you going to bank on that?

I'm going to say Detroit. In the preason game and beat the Bengals. I have never been or ever will be a Bengels fan. I was telling my friends Detroit is a team to watch. Don't forget Dalton hurt his wrist Sunday and we don't know what will be the outcome. I think the Bengals will one one game and lose the rest. By the end of the season they will be handing tickets away

I don't think Gradkowski did anything special to win the game. After Dalton went down, Gradkowski came in and didn't cost them the game. But it was won based on defense, the running game and great play-calling, particularly on the 41-yard TD.

And it generated lofty local ratings:

Hopefully in the coming years, when these young players gel, that is a possibility. Either way, I like their chances a lot better than Cleveland's.
