    Was wondering what is going on,im not here to talk trash was just wondering how your team was looking through the fans eyes,and not that damn bandwagon jumpin espns eyes.The Bengals are surprising alot of people we are very excited in Bengaldom, we havent had much to get excited about for quite a while. So feel free to hit me back with a fans eye of what we should be looking for in next weeks game. Thanks.

    The Bengals look to be one of the fun teams to watch this year...

    However I cannot watch them because their uniforms hurt my eyes.

    LOL.... you are a sad sad fan.

    I just viewed your post history. You have NEVER made a single positive post about the Texans or one of our players. Not one.

    Keep up the good work.

    I on the other hand expect the see a shaken up Texans team playing with some desperation, and competing hard. Go Texans

    This team has done NOTHING positive to post about. I suggest you take your blinders off and look at the sad state of affairs. In 4 years of loyal watching the Texans haven't done anything to shake their expansion status. Unless things start coming together quick, the team is looking at another rebuilding phase.

    I think it will be a close game. One should never underestimate a team coming off of a bye week nor a coordinator change. Moreover, after a 3-0 start you will be seeing a lot more attention and this will give Chad Johnson a chance to run his mouth which always makes for good locker room fodder

    This is a draw a line in the sand type of game for the Texans and individual players. It should be close.

    The Bengals look pretty good so far. Carson is obviously the real deal at QB. I wish DC would have had the luxury of sitting a year before being thrown into the fray. You have a stud at receiver in Chad Johnson. Your d looks good.

    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. :texflag:

    Yo Honcho...I think the issue here is this thread was started by a Bengal fan. If you want to bash the team, as 50% of the posts in this deal do, have the deasancy not to hand it to the other side on a silver platter.

    Blinders?
    Maybe you should read my post history.

    I am critical but I realize the sky is not falling, this isn't the end of the world, if you can count on one thing in the NFL that is "expect the unexpected". - How bout them Dolphins, wasn't Carolina supose to be a superbowl contender? Weren't the Dolphins suppose to be horrible again this year?

    We have some great players. Don't we? I think we do. Great players make plays and as long as you have a few playmakers you have a chance.

    I think it is a mental thing. All this team needs is a shift in mindset. If someone flips that switch they could go off. Will that happen? Who knows but that is the reason I watch every sunday. If I thought there was no hope at all I would go play golf. (my golf clubs will be gathering dust this winter.)

    You guys have a great young team. Good line, one of the best young QBs in the game with a great group of WRs and a good running game. And your defense is looking real good (picked them up one hour before kick-off today and they got me 5 picks and allowed 7 points). HOwever, I think that Dunta can cover Chad Johnson, its about time AJ gets a big game and DD needs to get of the ground. If it was not for the bye week and firing Chris Palmer, I would not give the Texans much of a chance, but its going to be closer than most people think, and if our O gets going and we can acctually force a turnover, we might just pull this one out in a shoot-out.

    I think our offense will look much better, but not great, and our D will look horrible. We're just going to get trounced in a different way this time.

    Greetings ... just a quick howdy...

    As a Bengals fan (having suffered through many years of "learning from losing") I unfortunately know very little about your team.

    Anyone willing to help me with whom to watch during the game? What are your strengths? What are your less-than-strengths? I really don't place alot of value in the so-called "experts" or "analysts" (see their reaction to how the Bengals have played only "marginal" teams thus far) so I look to other fans for some "education". Makes the game more exciting to watch the better players on other teams.

    Not a homer, or troll, just genuinely interested in watching a great game.

    I'll try to answer any football questions about the Bengals you have, but I don't really want to waste my time (or yours) with alot of empty smack talk.

    Our boards are at www.bengals.com (easy to register) and most Bengals fans enjoy a good discussion with opposing fans. I say most, but our boards are generalyl moderated pretty well, methinks.

    Hope you are all recovering from the two storms, and we wish you all the best.

    WHO DEY!!! (standard Bengal greeting <chuckle>)

    well despite Honcho's nay-saying.. the Bengals can probably expect to go 4-0.

    Even if Pendry is "the guy" at OC.. even if our bye week changes lit a fire under everyones butts.. I seriously doubt that we are going to go out there and win against a fired up Bengals team.

    I just dont think we are ready to make our "come back" yet. I give us at least 2 more weeks before we look like a professional team.. and thats if things go well.. if things go badly.. I see us finishing in the bottom 5 and going through some BIG changes this offseason (thank god)

    oh.. and Sapper.. we currently look like a bad college team on offense right now.. so even with the talent we have there, there isnt much to see. Hopefully our new OC will do better and you will get to see Andre Johnson and Domanick Davis lighting things up.. but im skeptical this season.

    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.

    Been there, done that... got a t-shirt...I can't recall how many qb's we "ruined" from bad olines/coaching/play calling/poor teamwork...

    Our team is getting better each of the last 3 years for one reason and one reason only... the coach.

    He sat a Heisman trophy-winning QB his rookie year (took ALOT of heat from fans and mgm't alike) so the kid could learn from a reall pro (Jon Kitna).

    He benched the ONLY pro-bowler and later sent said pro-bowler packing (Corey Dillon) because CD whined about playing time and lack of respect...

    He "traded" anyone who didn't want to second their own futures for the sake of the team (a la Takeo Spikes)... caught ALOT of heat...

    BUT... if you watch the Bengals being interviewed (Palmer esp) he credits his line, the defense, the coaches, the equipment guys, heck, even the fans, for any successes he has...

    btw - how do you see Dunta stacking up against our WR? Chad J. is a bit of a talker, but he can produce... TJ Houshmanzaduh can catch and run, and a rookie (C. Henry) today scored against a tough Bears D. Who're your other CB's?

    Hey guys. Another Bengals fan here. I hope you all made it through Rita's wrath ok and are able to get on with your normal routines. I have family in Lampassas and Copperas Cove but fortunately they were far enough away from the storm to not be effected.

    I haven't had a chance yet to see your team play this year but in the NFL any opponent is dangerous if you don't come to play. The current Bengals team is in unchartered waters when it comes to being a big favorite and getting alot of national attention, so you never know how they might come out next week. This could easily be one of those "trap" games. Two weeks from now the Bengals play on national TV in a Sunday night game against Jacksonville, so we could easily get caught looking ahead to that game and get knocked off by the Texans instead.

    I guess this will be another one of those games where we find out just how much the Bengals have improved. We know they can get the job done, but will they have the right mindset to get the job done? That will be one of my biggest concerns.

    I'll look forward to reading your thoughts on the game and finding out more about your team in the next few days.

    WHO DEY!

    I see Robinson stacking up well against Chad. He has had no shortage of elite WRs lining up across from him.. both in games, and in practice (Andre).. and he has always stacked up well. Chad is a great WR though so im sure Dunta wont be able to shut him down.. but I dont think Chad will be able to run rampant either. I think Dunta has the ability to shut down ANY WR on any given day though.. just depends on how much help he has. We will see.

    As for our other CBs... Faggins is solid.. he isnt elite.. but he makes plays and what he may lack in physical abilities, he makes up for in heart and determination. hes one of my favorite Texans.

    I am actually not sure who we have on the depth chart behind Faggins.. but I imagine we may be seeing Buchanan (Formerly our #2 cb) as our nickle back. He has had a TERRIBLE time so far.. he is giving way too much cushion.. he isnt getting good leverage, and he refuses to step up and tackle when its necessary. I think he will be alright in the nickle position, maybe even pretty good.. but I dont trust him as a starter.

    One thing I'm wondering about, how is it that the Bengals "only" scored 24 points when bears QB Orton threw _5_ INT's?
    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 :)
