    At this point, I don't know whether to sympathize with the Bengals or stick it to them.

    This is not the week in which they want to be measured against the New England Patriots. The Men, as we call them, are pretty much depleted - uncommonly so, for so early in the season. And the Patriots, well, they're not.

    The Patriots lead the NFL in offense. They also lead the league in defense. And the Bengals, well, they don't.

    In the offseason, the Patriots signed Adalius Thomas, the ferocious linebacker from Baltimore, as a free agent. The Bengals, in spite of many helpful suggestions along those lines, didn't. They went instead for Ed Hartwell. And cut him.

    Yeah but at least the Carson Palmer thing panned out... I mean, what did they use on Akili Smith? Sixth pick or something?

    From the article: "The offensive line is a tag team."

    Like last year, Carson is going to spend a lot of time on his backside.

    No Jersey Selected

    Mike Brown/Marvin Lewis placed their franchise at risk when they made the conscious decision to draft players of unquestioned ability, but also of questionable, if not downright unsavory, character. This risk has been amplified by using first-day selections that consume a not-insignificant amount of salary cap room. I seem to recall a saying about reaping what one sows.
