Bengals Early Bird Special

Have you ever wondered what thoughts trickle through the mind of Bengals owner Mike Brown? Well if I had to guess I would say it goes something like this: "Fact. The Bengals play in Cincinnati. Cincinnati. Cinnabons. Charlie Sheen. Chewbacca." Okay so that's probably not it. Undoubtedly it goes more like this: "I can't trade Palmer. If I were to do that then I would be stuck with the bad one. Carson. " Still don't agree? Well then this is my final guess: "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a lollipop?" Brown's priorities are obviously heading down the wrong road if that is what he's thinking.

Okay well in all honesty, the second statement doesn't reflect my views about Carson. I believe he was an adequate quarterback, even a good one for a period of time, but he lacked the supporting cast to fully achieve his potential. And to be honest I have no idea what goes through the mind of Mike Brown, nor do I want to know. It's probably for the best that we can't read his mind. But feel free to take a guess as to what Brown's thought process is. And your prize will be.....drum roll please....a sign that says "At least we aren't Cleveland."

Alright, we're finally halfway through the work week or whatever it is you do with your time. Now it's time to get you caught up with what you may have missed or overlooked from Wednesday:
