Being a Bengals fan myself, I'm disgusted as well. Enough is enough. I understand these are the actions on the player's behalves, but it all starts with management. Management and scouts are recruiting players with questionable backgrounds. It's a risk that sometimes pays off, but I believe it is finally catching up to us.
You're right about Carson Palmer. No one expected him to bounce back like he did last year off injury. To me, he's still the most underrated and underappreciated QB in the league. You can say I'm biased, but to me he's the best overall QB in the game today. I believe he'd make any core of wide-outs good if not great receivers. Look at what he did for Chris Henry last year. Too bad he's out half the season.
The Bengals are on the verge of greatness (since forever ago) and with antics off the field, there's no way we'll be where we want to be on the field.
