    At least some of them have a sense of humor. I liked this prediction:

    The Bengals will score on 2 FG and a safety, Brady steps on the back endzone line while connecting on a 99 yard touchdown pass that is called back. With our secondary, he is not afraid to pass from anywhere on the field.

    Part of me can't wait for the Colts, Steelers, Cowboys, etc.

    It's kinda painful to watch the hurt fans of Cinci, Buffalo and Cleveland (but NOT those of Miami or NY!!!!!!!).

    yeah, i feel bad for cinci and buffalo.
    I actually sort of like Cinci, Chad Johnson is my favorite non-patriot. he is fun to watch, and has a sense of humor.

    They are 6-10 since the Patriots last went to Cincinatti. Hard to think of them as a cellar-dweller team again.

    I agree. As much as i want NE to win against Buffalo, I do feel for those guys with the injuries they have. They were having a hard enough time with some matchups, but they've taken a huge slew of hurt so far and that's fonna bother the rest of the team for quite awhile as they adjust things to go with what they have left.

    What worries me is their new running back. In a year or two, if Buffalo gets a good O-line, that kid could cause lots of problems for everyone in the division.

    How about the "no zone" defense?? 77-17. They aren't too confident. I think most teams are going to feel defeated before they even step on the field with you guys.

    This should be an interesting game. I think their defense will not be able to stop us, but this will be the first time we face a team whose passing game can actually keep up with ours. I don't think the Bengals are as good a running team as they've been in the past, and I expect to see Maroney/Morris to have another solid game this week.

    Well, they certainly seem to have more realist fans than other teams. :)

    History has chastened them...

    My favorite line?

    "Pats will lead 35 - 0 at the half and win a squeaker ... 52 - 10."

    Man, those are some self depracating predictions. Even the uber-homers on the board are predicting 3 point wins. Usually at least a few people pick a wacky lopsided victory for the home team. Nope, they've accepted their fate.

    Honestly, I think a lot of teams are going to go into the game with us already feeling defeated. Or at least worried. When a coach of those opposing team comes out and says "This is a team with no weaknesses, we knew we could be in for a long day." That's a bad sign. If you doubt yourself in the NFL you've already lost.

    And, to tell you the truth, Cincy's offense scares me. Palmer has generally excelled against us and CJ & TJ are about as good as it gets for WR tandems. I think our defense will stop their offense more than they stop our offense, but I could definitely see this becoming a shootout.

    i agree. our secondary has yet to be really tested this year and if palmer can get time he is good enough to pick anyone apart. that being said we will win by 17. 41-24.

    I assume that the Cincy fans are thinking their team has a good chance of becoming 1-3. I do like the chance of the Pats defense getting an early test of a good offense. Assuming Rudi Johnson returns from injury (which has had some success against the Pats) could keep NE's defense on their heels. We all know the Begals WR's are very good and could give NE's secondary problems.

    I am a Bengals fan and the game should be interesting...
    Monday Night Football, in Cincinnati, Bengals licking their wounds after losing 2 last-minute heartbreakers in a row on the road...

    But quite honestly, I have never seen a team that was already good reload like the Pats did this past offseason. And has it paid off! You guys are destroying teams!

    That said, I look for a close, competitive game. The Bengals defense is really banged up, especially at LB, and quite frankly, they aren't that great even when healthy.

    But, they were good enough for us to win that game against the Hawks yesterday, but our offense had some miscues, penalties, etc, etc.

    It should make for a great MNF game, though.

    Good luck guys.

    I said in another thread that I think this game will have the Pats confront the first really above-average unit they've seen yet: the Bengals offense. I'm interested to see if they can dominate on the opposition on that side of the ball as thoroughly as they've dominated every other area of each game.

    That said, there's no way the Bengals can stop the Patriots offense, so the Pats will still toy with the Bengals overall. But at least it may have some drama to it instead of watching the Patriots stomp around the field on offense and defense.

    Not that I'm complainin' ... :eat1:

    I'd never underestimate that Bengals offense. They are just explosive. Should be an interesting test for secondary. I do wish this was a Rodney game!

    Strangely, I think our defense will show up big for this game, as they did against the Ravens, especially if Ahmad Brooks gets back into the lineup at MLB. He is a beast.

    This to me is something of a trap game for the Patriots. They're rolling along like a machine, stomping opponents...they may overlook the Bengals just enough to keep things interesting.

    Plus, the don't allow video cameras into PBS....

    This will be a good test for our secondary. Should be an entertaining game with a lot of scoring. Although, I could also see the Pats trying to slow the game down with a lot of running and keeping the ball as much as possible!

    Good luck to all and wishes for an injury-free game for both sides!

    Hear, hear! The Bengals cannot afford ANY more injuries, and I never wish injuries on anyone. Although it might be particularly helpful if Brady could catch a non-life threatening, 24 hour stomach flu bug at about 12 Noon on Monday...

    Don't overlook these guys. We should be worried. Brady won't have a second chance to get into a rhythm like he did with the Bills. If we start off like we did on sunday, the Bengals offense will be way less forgiving. I hope we run away with this one but I'm taking nothing for granted.

    You misunderstood me dude, I meant I wish the Pats had a haven such as that. No moronic Steeler fans, no idiot Colt fans, No whiny Charger fans. Just good old intelligent Pats fans. ( Well, the ones who aren't also Dead Sox fans. ;) )

    Pats could lose in a shoot-out -- you never know how the ball will bounce or some ST play.

    Pats will NOT lose by "overlooking" the Bengals. Many of us Pats fans had this game flagged as one of the toughest games, along with at Indy, at Baltimore, and SD.

    Well, we keep our trolls in the smack section or they get vacations right away. We have fans from all over the league making a home at our place. Even the cool steeler fans(there are a few) would rather hang with us than steeleraddicts or steelerfever.
    We also have a huge arcade and many vBookie events to entertain you.

    Any Bengals fans who think we're looking past them are sadly mistaken... BB himself has too much respect for that offense

    Still - how odd it is to see two teams' fans respecting what each brings to the table - and while most fans would be idiots not to be frightend of the Brady/Moss, Brady/Welker combination, that sure hasn't prevented other team fans from talking smack

    So let's give each fans' camp credit on this one

    The Ravens offense and the Patriots offense rate a bit differently on the challenge scale. I stick to saying that the Bengals just won't be able to do enough against the Pats offense to make a real game of it.

    As for the trap game, I don't think so. The Bengals still have a reputation as a solid team that can do some damage, especially on offense. And it's not like the Patriots are building up to that big Browns rivalry the week after ... the Browns, though, that could be a trap game between a Monday nighter on the road and the Cowboys the following week.

    I think it's possible the Bengals can make things interesting for a while by scoring some points, and it is in Cincy, which makes a difference, but the Patriots are just too good for the Bengals to handle right now, imo. Anything from a fairly comfortable (but not too big a spread) Pats win to a blowout wouldn't surprise me. No knock on the Bengals in that. It's just that this Patriots team is as impressive a football team as I've seen in a long time. Frankly, keeping the tape on Tom Brady's ankles through the entire game would rate as a moral victory about now.

    I'll second that. I never can understand why fans of opposing teams act so badly when visiting other team's homes, whether it be in cyberspace or at their stadiums. The converse is also true.
    It's one thing to give a visiting fan some good natured ribbing...it's entirely another to dump beer on them, direct profanity-laced tirades at them, etc.
