    Right now I want to win games. We have enough tough games through the season and every win is critical for HF - I want wins, the challenges will come.

    When did he hurt it? The last game, or in practice?

    I think Lewis is trying to out-Belichick Belichick, my guess is Rudi's fine.

    Last week he had 17 carries for 9 yards. Maybe he hurt it early in the game and worked his way through it but couldn't continue? Those numbers are horrible.

    this team is ranked #1 and for good reason too, why the hell do we need to hope Rudi is hurt.

    I say let them bring it. To be the best, you gotta beat the best, i hope rudi is healthy and rearing to go, makes winning so much sweeter and they won't have any excuses either.

    There's very little chance he plays this week - and if he does, he's hobbled. Fine with me.

    Good call, I don't want to see weakened opponents, I want to beat teams that are at their best.

    We are and have been plagued by an unusual amount of injuries in the last two years (not to mention suspensions).
    We have been having problems overcoming them, and losing our #2 pick Kenny Irons, and having our former #1 pick Chris Perry constantly hurt at the RB position is killing our flexibiltiy in the running game. Rudi is a product of our offensive line, which, when healthy (unlike last year, another problem area) is one of the better units in the NFL.
    Watson is a good change of pace back, but he's no starter. Hopefully we can disguise this with play-action and enough honest runs to eke out a win.
    I'm not hopeful, but am yet desperate.
    The Bengals simply cannot afford to go 1-3 headed into their bye with the freaking Steelers beating up sub-par competition n the division.
    But they just might. Or maybe not. MNF at home, licking our wounds, I like our chances of handing the Pats their first loss, provided ST's doesn't melt down again (Shayne Graham is also hurt).

    With or without Rudi you guys aren't geting us at our best. Willie Anderson is dinged up, Rod Jones isn't 100%, Chatman is out, the LBs are thin.
    We re-signed DeeDee Dorsey to take Rudi's spot. He has a lot more speed.
    Crystal Perry and Thug Life(Chris Henry) won't be back for a few more weeks.
    In week 9 we will be a different team.

    Its not about being full of ourselves. I mentioned that we were the number 1 ranked team, but even if the pats weren't, if a healthy pats team cannot beat a healthy bengals team, then maybe just maybe we don't deserve the win. Now no one can control injuries, so you take it like it comes, but if i had my druthers I would like to see them at full strength.

    I gotta believe the team doesn't think like this either. If Manning gets hurt before week 9, can you see someone like Harrison saying that he's glad that he doesn't have to face Peyton that week. Geez, I hope that never happens.
