I don't think this is going to work out. The field isn't big enough for 2 egos like theirs on the same team.

hmm I just caught the news...

it can go either way as long as there is chemistry. If they can get the two man tandem in sync, they could actually be the underdogs this year.

They actually had a fairly good season last year. TO will cry though if he feel he the ball is being thrown to Chad more than himself.

They are more mature than in years past and I think they can figure out that they don't have many years left to get that championship. T.O. has been there once, but hasn't been close otherwise. Chad has never been close. They're getting older and wiser (hopefully). They aren't going to cry if one gets 7 catches and the other gets 6...

Don't count on it!! TO is a big crybaby and he will cry to the media! Have you not seen his behavior with the last 2 teams he played for?

You're basically saying people don't evolve and there's no chance, despite his past, he can't look in the mirror and keep his mouth shut for the greater good. And I don't remember him making too big a deal in Buffalo, and that situation was awful with qb and coaching changes during the season. That was an opportunity for him to blow the city up and probably have just cause, and he didn't. At least this situation is more stable than Buffalo.

Love me some T.O. The guy's never been a trouble maker off the field and has never been unprepared on the field. He's hardly the first WR to be a prima donna. ESPN just loves to pump that story and America loves to label him as a bad guy. Besides, some (not all) of the criticism he's dished out to teammates has been warranted; he's played for some choke artist quarterbacks for instance. These guys are professionals and should be able to take criticism. Great addition for the Bengals and I'm rooting for the guy.

Skeery, ain't it? Folks who live in downtown Cincinnati should steel themselves against spontaneous implosions.

I can see the headlines now: Mehring Way sinks under weight of Bengals wide receivers' egos

All that matter is if Carson can deal with it and if he wants TO. Apparently he did want TO, and I dont blame him. As a QB give me all the weapons I can have.

I find it comical that a Steeler fan thinks this won't work; everyone else thinks it will.
