Isn't there a curse being on the cover of Sports Illustrated? And I hate to see what Steelers fans think when Palmer says:
"I hate (the Steelers)," Palmer told Sports Illustrated. "I keep thinking about how much, back in college, I hated UCLA. I hate the Steelers more than I hate UCLA. Yeah, it's because I'm jealous and I want what they have. I guess I'm just not that evolved."Get 'em Carson. It's good to know both the Steelers and Bengals are heading into 2006 with a chip on their shoulders -- Edge: Bengals. And while the Steelers won after a gift exit from our star quarterback, there's no doubt in my mind that Pittsburgh didn't have a chance if Palmer remained healthy. No chance. Zero.

Also on Bengals.com, Geoff Hobson shows all the Bengals ever on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Take note, there's no one in 90's -- the period Cincinnati just can't quite remember.
