^ Ye of little faith! Just because the Reds, the Bengals, and St. X all succumbed to outside forces this last weekend doesn't necessarily mean you must abandon all hope--after all, there's always next year...

P.S. And don't forget that OSU won its game against Indiana... (Oh, never mind! )

Ya, but this was supposed to be last year's next year. And WTF happened to the Bengals? They were supposed to better this year, not worse.

Look, brother! If there's something in Cincinnati that one needs to learn early, it's this...when referring to the Bengals, it's ALWAYS gonna be "next year."

Point well taken. I'll make a deal with you. They beat the Steelers this week, then I will quit calling them the Bungles.

You all know the drill, the Bungles do not have to be exceptional, they just have to make money. Do you realize Marvin Lewis is the 3rd longest tenured head coach in the NFL? He is not dumb, he recognizes the objective, keep the payroll under control and the stadium reasonably full. Even if you don't have a sell-out, a reasonably full stadium will make money, particularly with all of the league revenue we take in.

This season started off dismally at Baltimore, with the Ravens handing us our jock straps. Then it seemed to brighten a little with games against Cleveland, Washington, and Jacksonville. But then the loss to Miami was like throw it away. Follow that up with a humiliating loss to the Browns in Cleveland and we are looking at another one of many if not losing at least not playoff seasons. But that is professional sports, just adequate if not great. Enough to keep the fans coming back.

^^ Yup! The pathetic thing is that all of Cincinnati's jocks (alias, "the fans") DO keep coming back. Very sad, Kjbrill--every year, like lemmings condemning themselves to the sea--I have absolutely no sympathy for them, nor should anyone else.

(while absorbing the ancient wisdom of Gerry and The Pacemakers' song "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying") Come on, all of you tearful Bengal lads and lassies--this bleak Monday morning, in the deepest recesses of your dark little hearts, admit that you knew the outcome of last night's Steelers game before it actually began (right?). So now--please do the rest of us a favor by going somewhere and QUIETLY cry in your beers in acceptance, okay?
