So feel free to hit me back with a fans eye of what we should be looking for in next weeks game. Thanks.
what we should be looking for in next weeks game... hmmm. Perhaps a different channel?

If you really want a more competitive game, contact UC's athletic director about the possibilities of subbing for the Texans.

As a Bengals' fan up here in Southwest Ohio, I just wanted to tell the Texan fans good luck this week. I'm a little worried that the Bengals may be overlooking you all this weekend. Hopefully Marvin will habe them focused and well prepared.

One thing I wanted to say is all I keep hearing is the chatter about Chad and A.J. I really believe that the Texans need to establish the run and stick with it to have any kind of success. Even if y'all fall behind 10 points, it would be crazy to not stay focused on the run. For one I'm still not convinced of the Bengals run defense and you also want to try to control the clock and keep it away from Cinci's offense. I think the game will be closer than what most people think, but hopefully the Bengals will win by a 7-10 point margin.

Bengals will be 4-0. I would take Andre over Chad any day, but Carson has more options to go to than David. Plus you guys have a decent o-line, whereas Houston has nothing. I still love the Texans, but it's not looking good this year.

Did your O suck, I would think that you, based on the 5 INT's, should be able to score more, or at least produce more yardage?

Anywho, I'm looking forward to next week's game, hopefully We'll be able to pull a rabbit out of our hats and surprise a 3-0 Cincin team

Yes they shoulda scored at least 4-7 more points. the biggest was on the two yard line after a pass interference called against the bears. but a penalty and a bears stand killed the TD. All in all though the field was mushy with a rain in the second half. so I'm not going to complain about 24 points against on of the better defense in the NFL.

As a Bengals fan, I think credit should be given to the Bears defense; they made the Bengals work hard and gave the Bengals offense there biggest test so far. Had the Bears defense not been so good, the Bengals would have done to the Bears what they did to Minnesota. The Bears defense was good enough to keep them in the game until the Bengals last score in the fourth quarter.

The Bears' D was, as advertised, AWSOME. But the Cincy Coach decided before the game he was going to play THAT kind of game, i.e. - ball/clock control, run at 'em up the middle, etc.

The weather was a significant factor as well... rainy, muddy, long grass (they didn't cover the field - on purpose) and if you watched the game, the WR's were slipping every time they tried to make a cut. No excuses , just trying to explain.

Also, with 1:30 left, we had 1st & goal at the 3.... Coach took a knee... no need to rub anyone's face in it. Be sure he knew he was going to get the standard "6 to's and ONLY 24 pts??!!" criticism... still, a pretty classy thing to do.

Played at Soldier Field (in Chicago) and very loud fan base (altho they got kinda quiet in the 4th qtr <grin>)

I think your team has a big task ahead of them, but this is a home game for us (Cincy) against an underrated team. Ask KC how that feels... (they were undefeated coming here 11-0) and looked way past us. Huge moral victory... I think that marked our true "believe in us we're on the rise" turning point. That scares me about this game.

Anyway... our coaches are the true architects of this team. What a nice change for us. Ok... having Palmer/Johnson/Johnson/Houshmandzadeh/Perry/thornton/etc. is nice too...

WHO DEY!!!

Hey, Boomer and J.S.!
Cincy looks tough this year. Good for y'all. Your WR corps is deep. The Texans is not. Texans pass rush is almost non-existant. Expect Palmer to have good game this week.
With our new O-Coordinator, expect the Texans to try to shorten the game by running as much as possible. I don't know about your D-Line, but if you can stop Dom Davis early, you will have the edge. Texans O-Line can run block, but not so good at pass blocking.
I love my team, but on the road at Cincy, I have to be honest and say that Bengals will be 4-0.
I will be very happy if I am wrong!

Well after a week of no Texans ball, I'm excited again. Cinci looks real good, gotta credit to my Fantasy Football QB and WR; Houston should finally be playing like a team and cutting out the stupid penalties. I'm prediciting a close game, hopefully HOU wins by 3. Not sure of your kicker, but I think ours is pretty good. If the Texans of the last 3 regular season games show up, then Cinci takes it in a landslide.

Matchups to watch:
C. Johnson vs D. Robinson
D. ONeal (your #1 CB?) VS A.Johnson
Our O-Line/D-Line vs your Our O-Line/D-Line - If our guys play decent, we have a chance.

Our kicker is really good, one of the best in the NFL/AFC. Don't know his stats off the top of my head, but they'll back me up. I like the Texans, and I feel for you guys--obviously Bengal fans know where you're coming from. I'm surprised that Andre Johnson hasn't done anything. Dude's killing me on my fantasy team.

Does that all stem from the OC, or is it Carr, or the O-Line. Dare I say combo of all 3?

Not criticising at all, that was the smart call to make in a situation like that. I did not have the chance to watch the game, only the stats of www.nfl.com, hence the questions about the points/yardage.

I think the Bengals need to watch out for #7. Chad Stanley. Aparently we have a great punting game. Dom Capers says so every week. Ok im done.

Seriously, the Bengals look great. Palmer and Johnson look really good. But this years Texans team has me all flipped around. I dont know if a new OC can right the ship.

Bengals 31 Texans 10

It's all of it....and that even includes some of it being AJ's fault because he's been having the drops. The whole franchise is in a funk.

When is Jon Kitna a free agent? The Texans might need a new QB next season.

I look for the Texans to come out with something to prove and know they can compete with Cincy. Could a 3-0 record have the Bengals looking past the reeling Texans?? I hope so.
Its been a long time since we had anything to cheer about, all Marvin Lewis has said is we havent done anything yet. At the end of the Bears game the team met him and said we havent done anything yet. So im hoping they dont overlook the hungry Texans. If you dont bring your A game in the NFL youll get smashed in the mouth,hope for a good game Sunday yall had plenty of time to prepare so noone round here is overlooking yall.

on Defense there is a bit more to watch. Mostly.. Dunta Robinson is quickly becoming one of the top 5 CBs in the league (and may already be there IMO).. though our lack of production on defense has forced us to keep him in coverage.. we havent seen many Dunta Robinson rushes this season yet.

ALso.. we just benched two guys on Defense.. Jason Babin (OLB) and Phillip Buchanan (CB).. taking their place is Orr at OLB and Faggins at CB. Faggins has been our nickle back for a while now. Some people dog on him here.. personally I think he is full of untapped potential.. even so, he is already pretty dang solid as a CB.. so it will be fun to watch him starting and see if he brings his A game to impress the coaches. Orr has never had the chance to start.. but he is a special teams monster. It will be interesting to see if he is a long term answer at OLB for us.


that is about all there is to watch. You can also watch Carr if you want to see what it looks like when an extremely talented QB is ruined by inept coaches.
Ive actualy wanted to see the Robinson CJ matchup for a while Dunta Robinson is very impressive.

I think the Bengal fans had their share of that in the 90's. Okay, they weren't extremely talented QB's, but they had no chance when they were lying on their backs every other pass play. Until your alls offensive line comes together, you will struggle like the Bengals did.

I don't care if you have the world's greatest kicker or the best kicker ever in the history of the game. He's not worth a damn if the Offense goes 3 and out. He never gets a chance.
