We're not exactly sure why Mark Curnutte needs to ask the question whether Cedric Benson should start again.
Steelers fans take it to a Bengals fan.
Chick Ludwig details the disastrous 2004 NFL Draft.
Do you think that the Bengals are better than before Marvin Lewis? I do. Think of it this way. This is his sixth season, and we're just NOW contemplating that. Maybe he'll turn things around this season. Maybe not. Even though we're 0-7, I still believe we were better than the wonderful days of Dave Shula, Bruce Coslet and Dick LeBeau. Though that's not saying much, is it? However, it's only natural that the talking points will include Lewis' eventual firing -- of which I still don't think is close to happening.
The rookies made their mark on Sunday -- if losing one to IR, another to a foot fracture, then yea, they did. Even Simpson caught a pass, but came up lame afterwards.
The Bengals re-signed Reagan Maui'a after the team had an open spot on the 53-man roster. It's surprising that no other club thought about acquiring the fullback. Of course, I'm being sarcastic. While the dude can blow people up at times, he's often seen blocking standing up, a horrible pass protection back, and it seems he's one or two gaps wrong in the playbook. But we'll see.
Also, Maurice Purify is back with the practice squad.
Former Bengals linebacker, Odell Thurman will have his assault trial (he clocked a man at an indoor water park breaking his jaw) on January 27.
Apparently the Bengals practice like Super Bowl champions; perhaps it's because the talent they practice against is much more inferior than the talent they play again? But hey, at least we're good at something, right?
The Texans look to win their third consecutive game for the first time in team history.
