  1. Although they are probably better than many of the 0-3 teams since 1980, the odds are just too long... http://www.oddsshark.com/nfl/its-over-nfls-0-3-teams No first-round playoff embarrassment this year, Bengals fans.
  2. Leg or not, he will miss. I don't think we can depend on him.
  3. Fat Randy I have a feeling that decision is going to haunt this franchise for several years, as Jake Elliott goes on to have a great career. Fat Randy will never hit a 61-yard game-winning field goal.
  4. it's 11:30pm and I'm too tired to read the article or digest any stats, but I will say that whenever a team seems hopeless, I'm reminded of the 1989 Pittsburgh Stealers. They were outscored 92-10 in their first two games but then ended up making the playoffs. (Man, I hate saying anything positive about that franchise. Let's focus on the fact that they were outscored 92-10.)
  5. A quarter of a century ago...

    Oh, that I don't know. I won't speak for USN, but he may have just been drawing parallels to what happened with the Bengals and Packers in Green Bay in Week 3 of 1992 to the upcoming matchup between the same two teams in the same city in Week 3 of 2017.
  6. A quarter of a century ago...

    The Bengals enter the game at 2-0 under rookie head coach David Shula, while the Packers come in at 0-2. The Packers were destroyed at Tampa Bay in Week 2 by a score of 31-3. To make things even better for the Bengals, Packers QB Don Majkowski is out, forcing Green Bay to use backup Brett Favre. Even though he was on the Falcons roster in 1991, Favre is basically a rookie making his first start. Shula looks to be following in the successful steps of his father. I think we have ourselves a coach here, folks. The Packers, on the other hand, look to be in a lot of trouble, at least until they get Majkowski back. My pick: Bengals 27, Packers 6 The otherwise sane members of Go Bengals start to go crazy after losing back to back games AT HOME to a mediocre team and one of the worst teams in the league, while not scoring a touchdown in either game. These ain't two ordinary losses we're talking about here.
  7. Meh. The Bengals let Bill Walsh slip away a few years ago and that worked out fine.
  8. I've been frustrated by looking at the empty club level for years. Why is it so empty at PBS but not at other stadiums that have club levels? As for overall attendance, I wonder if there isn't still a hangover from the playoff debacle of 2015. I know there is for me, personally. I held out hope for good things from 2011 until that game, but now I feel like there's no need to get emotionally or financially invested in this shit show. Even if they make the playoffs, we know it's not going to end well. No, this isn't as bad as the Lost Decade, but in an apples and oranges sort of way, it almost is. I just have no shits left to give for this franchise. That being said, I'll still drop in here and see what's going on with them from time to time.
  9. WOW - Season Opener

    I always love to see the Patriots lose. Second only to a Stealers loss, it's my favorite thing in sports, and I wish we could see it much more often in the months and years to come. It's funny now to go back and read the "Patriots will go undefeated" articles that have run all summer. But while it was nice, I can't help but be reminded of that time that Brady and the Patriots were washed up: https://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/was-this-the-end-for-tom-brady-and-the-new-england-patriots--dynasty--032958660.html http://grantland.com/the-triangle/new-england-patriots-kanas-city-chiefs-tom-brady/ http://www.weei.com/articles/column/uncomfortable-reality-fading-tom-brady
  10. Yeah, I found that same page to make part of a reply before I saw your post. It is pretty uncommon, but it seems to have gone in spurts. 9 times in 8 years 1985-91 and now 4 in past 7 seasons.
  11. We've known since 2011 that the doomsday predictions would come rolling in the first time the team had a losing record. You just KNEW it. I think too many "experts" (and fans) are ignoring that the team lost two games and tied another because it didn't have a kicker who could do his job (first Nugent, then Randy or whatever his name was). Turn those three games around and the 6-9-1 becomes 9-7. Not good enough for the playoffs, but not the laughingstock they're being made out to be. But, hey, they're the Bengals. They're cheap, they all get arrested, and they're always one of the worst teams in the league, right?
  12. Those are just collectibles. Last year it was "Ice" helmets and this year it's "Blaze" helmets. http://www.nflshop.com/Blaze/source/bm-nflcom-2017-Blaze-Helmets
  13. Arrowhead Stadium, 1981, Chiefs vs Oilers, the day Joe Delany set the NFL record for most rushing yards for a rookie in a game Riverfront Stadium (Bengals) Riverfront Stadium (Reds) Adelphia Coliseum, Nashville, 1999: First official game in the new stadium, Titans vs Bengals. Great American Ballpark Never been to PBS. Had tickets ten rows behind the bench a few years ago and ended up in the hospital for an emergency appendectomy. Now I'm an old middle-aged fart with three teen kids involved in 1,001 activities. I can no longer bring myself to shell out several hundred dollars for tickets, parking, hotel, and overpriced beer to watch something that's available for free on my huge TV and surround system, so I may never go. As long as Adam Jones is on the roster, I know I won't.
  14. He only said that retirement after 2017 "remains an option". Either way, I'll believe it when I see it, but I'd like to see it. Replacing a franchise quarterback is not a given, and I'd love to see the Stealers spend several years searching for their next one. Let them have another decade like the 80s.
