Haha, wow, TO, Ocho, and Antonio Bryant on the same team. That team is going to explode by week 3.

The best part of that article is the 2 million in incentives. That won't cause any issues i bet.

YOu gotta love this!  That writes off whatever hopes the Bungals had of repeating last season's performance, not that I thought they would.

So, bring on the Ratbirds.

While I agree that this may not be a great fit in Cincy and there will not be enough balls to go around, I think that for the contract given, TO is a steal. 2M + 2M in incentives is nothing for a player of his caliber. Plus it is only a 1 year contract, so you won't have to worry about the inevitable year 2 or 3 meltdown.

That being said, I think Cincy was good last year because of the running game and the offseason moves tell me that they are going back to what hasn't worked for them in the past in an all passing offense. Cool for us.

TO knows he only has a single season to destroy the team.  Better get to work!

Henry still has better hands than the both of them. Dude left this world proving he wasn't afraid of contact.

Bengals have a buttload of promising young WR talent, which means all the young guys have to wait to get their shot with the TO inking.  And it ain't just TO and Ocho: they had signed Antonio Bryant, another talented diva, so you have a 3-way feud simmering.

First 6 weeks, these shitheads will be all smiles.  Biggest stumbling blocks on the sched should be the Pats, who really do seem to be declining, and the Ratties, with 10 guys on PUP.  Could go 6-0.  Then they get Miami, Pitt, Indy, the Jets, Saints, and Pitt again.  That's when that shit goes south, babies.  It's all great till someone pull the grenade pin in the bunker.

Everyone talks about how the Bengals really revamped the D and the run game, and now they're stocking receiving talent.  Problems, besides WR ego and the usual Bungling overconfidence and deflation:  not great depth at RB or QB; Carson Palmer has struggled off knee and elbow injuries; everyone will gun for the division winner; Antwon Odom still coming back from the torn Achilles; the usual thuggery and dumbassery; and bad PK and punting.

Everyone's selling the Bungles, but I ain't buying, and TO changes nothing.  The guy will be 37 this year, and even giving him the benny of doubt for travails in Buff, his end of tenure in Dallas was somewhat forgettable.

Beginning to really like the under for regular season wins for Balty (10) and over for Cincy (Cool.

Baltimore is pretty fucking busted considering it's not even August.  Not having Reed for 1/3 of the season is going to be killer.  Bet they end up somewhere in the middle of the pack on that side of the ball for the first 6.

IMO, the people that think this is a bad for Cincy are selling TO short.  He got almost 60 catches in Buffalo. Buffalo, FFS.  He's still a viable weapon that needs to be accounted for on defense and the dude is still a legit RZ threat.  Consider that for Pittsburgh, Miller is probably the only guy that compares inside the 20.  On offense for the Kittens, the key is Palmer.  If he's even halfway decent, their offense will probably be the best in the division.  Now, can they replicate their defensive success from '09?  We'll see.

Make no mistake, Cincy didn't get worse.  They got better.  The race for the division crown is even closer now.  H2H will be crucial this year.

If I were throwing preseason predictions for the AFCN around, I'd probably go with something like:

Cincy 10-6
Balty 9-7
Pitt 8-8
Cleveland 5-11

there will not be enough balls

I believe that lack of balls has been a problem in Cincy for some time.

This reeks of arrogance.  Sure, we can control TO!  He's changed!  Even OchoStinko said it:  This will be different because we're friends!  Just thanking the good Lord that i don't have friends like this.

Troy, RClark, Harrison, Timmons, etc. are certainly foaming at the mouth right now.  A chance to knock GoldTooth and CryBaby in the same game?

Priceless.
