The Daily Banter: The Regular Season Routine Begins Today

The Bengals are kicking off this week, back into their regular season routine. On Monday, they conducted a practice with defensive tackle Geno Atkins, cornerback Brandon Ghee and running back Brian Leonard sitting out. Cincinnati will take Tuesday off, then it's off to practices on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with walkthroughs on Saturday and game day on Sunday. How very exciting, as we draw closer to the regular season, seeing all of our patience and hard work pay off. Well, the players and coaches probably worked harder than we did. But c'mon. We're fans. There is no reward for our hard work other than echoes inside bars that shout, WHO DEY!

+ Jordan Palmer's rise from an unlikely third-string quarterback into the Bengals immediate backup quarterback took some work, in large part thanks to quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese.
