Bengals Set for Showdown in Dallas


The Bengals head this Sunday for Dallas, taking on a talent-laden Cowboys club that experienced a wakeup call last week, losing to Washington for its first setback in four games.

Cincinnati will bring an 0-4 record into the featured late-afternoon doubleheader contest on CBS. Off to their worst start since 2002, the Bengals lost 20-12 last week to Cleveland, with QB Carson Palmer missing his first game since 2004, due to elbow soreness. Palmer looks to be a game-time decision for the Dallas game.

The Bengals are not conceding that 0-4 means a season scrapped. Their losses include one without Palmer and three others against teams with a combined record of 9-1.

“We’re not where we wanted to be, obviously,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said after the Cleveland loss. “But the only way to get out of it is to let the bad feeling go and work our tails off. We’ll be ready to go. This football team will be ready to play in Dallas. We’ll play better than we played last week (Sept. 21 at N.Y. Giants). And we’ll play better than we did this week.”

    Please post this and support the boycott (
    Rumor has it that the 11/02/08 Bengals game against the Jags is going to be boycotted. We are calling for all Bengal fans to go to the game and tailgate but not go into the game. Bring a TV to watch the game but don’t go in. Mike will lose nearly $500,000. in concession revenue and more importantly will see that the fans demand more than a financially profitable team. The networks will see the empty seats and comment that the fans are all here but outside. What an embarrassment for Mike. We have all talked about the fact that Mike won’t give up the team unless we stop going. Let this be the first shot across the bow of this stinking…I mean sinking ship. Please pass this to everyone you know who might be a Bengal fan. Like the presidential candidates are proclaiming we too need CHANGE!)

    Get real, you losers. And to think many from Bengalsland have the gall and stupidity to compare the Bengals to a classic, classy, and SUCCESSFUL organization such as the PITTSBURGH STEELERS. Pathetic……
