Yeah, all but James Harrison have been let go. You know why? They sucked. Why hasn't Harrsion been let go? Don't forget about the team assistant who was dealing steroids. Wonder who on the Steelers received them?

Oh, and all the criminals the Bengals have had? Gone.



theve been to the playoffs once with marvin lewis. mike tomlin has only been a one year coach, and does 3 times better job than marvin lewis has ever done in his life. Bill Cowher went a season 15-1 with a rookie QB leading his team. has Carson Palmer done that when he was a rookie, no.

Any solid QB could have led that team to 15-1.. They were stacked.. Carson is arms and legs better than Big Ben. Take off your blinders dude..

Because the rest of the team is average.. Tell me Carson isn't a top teir QB and I'll laugh in your face.. I'm not a USC fan but Carson is a stud. He runs the whole team, has a cannon arm, and knows where everybody is at everytime.

They lost super bowls because their teams weren't very good.. Oh and Carson's knee was taken out of the first offensive play which was a 50+ yard completion..

Carson is Brady Mannish ish.. He's on the level of the greats, Ben isn't. He's good, number 1 out of that class but he's not great.. To say the least..

Not once did I ever say Ben was great! I am actually not a fan of Ben. He's inconsistent. But, you win as a team and you lose as a team. With that in mind, Carson will never take the Bengals to a SB victory. (see comment below)

Oh yes, the infamous dirty play by Kimo (Steeler)...how Pittsburgh was crucified over that one I suppose the next thing you'll say is that it is Pittsburgh's fault that the Bengals didn't go further in the playoffs that year. Is that a correct assumption on your part?



This is what Carson had to say about it himself:

....As for the tackle that led to it all, Palmer said Kimo von Oelhoffen did nothing.

“I don’t know Kimo personally,” Palmer said. “From what I’ve heard, he’s a classy guy. Football is football. I don’t think it was malicious at all. He’s a guy with a high motor that plays hard and was playing hard.

“It just happened. I don’t think in any way he was trying to do anything. It’s just part of the game.”

The Steelers lineman was stumbling as he came off a block and lunged at Palmer’s legs, crashing into the side of his left knee. Palmer tore the anterior cruciate ligament when the leg bowed...



I should have asked that question differently above. I didn't mean that Carson wasn't a good QB, however, he's never going to take the Bengals to a SB victory. It requires more than one person to win a SB and the Bengals don't have it. While I hate Chad Johnson, he is a good receiver, but him and Carson cannot do it alone.

You still don't see the Pittsburgh Mayor making statements like yours did about our football team and you don't see our coach on national TV saying how embarrassed he is over players actions off the field. That is lame when your coach and your mayor are on TV speaking about embarrassments and getting the players in line.

It's very well known throughout the NFL that the Rooneys do not tolerate crap with their players.

Except those that are any good.

And I do like the Rooneys. Class acts, active in Irish-American groups. I golfed with Tim Rooney last year in Spring Lake, NJ. Nice guy.

Did I just blow your mind?

Here, I will help you little boy:

Begin every sentence with a capital letter.
It's i-m-m-a-t-u-r-e, not imature.
It's ocho-cinco. Not ocho-sinco.
It's They've. Not theve.

There is no doubt that the Steelers have had much more success than the Bengals have had. Not even close. However, I'm not sure if you want to compare what Mike Tomlin has accomplished with the Steelers his first year than what Marvin Lewis has accomplished with the Bengals his first year. Tomlin inherited a team 2 years removed from the Super Bowl and went 10-6. Lewis inherited a terrible Bengals team that went 2-14 the year before he came in and turned them around to post an 8-8 record. That's a +6 win differential. Very impressive. Lewis's first year was more impressive and he had to go through a tougher time. Tomlin will be a good coach I think so I'm not knocking him at all. However, I just need to continue to educate you on your poor statements.
