Not only did the Bengals get trounced Monday night against the Ravens, but they have now lost arguably their best defensive player for the year in Thomas Howard. Also on the injury front, Carlos Dunlap and Bernard Scott are questionable and might not play again this Sunday and there's still no obvious progress with Dre Kirkpatrick.

Though it's only been one week, is it time to panic? Is this Sunday's home opener against the Browns a must-win? Is this team still as good as you originally expected? Vote and then talk about these here in the thread.
