    Bengals just thumped Green Bay. I kept saying the Bengals were for real, yet some folks here said that our win was against a bad team. Bull. It was a big win over a solid team.

    I wouldnt say "thumped," it was a close game throughout.

    And anyone who said the bengals were bad team are just stupid. They were a playoff team with a top defense last season.

    They didn't "thump" them, buddy. It was a mistake ridden game and I'd say GB lost a lot "better" than they should have. The Bungles did everything they could on O to hand Rodgers the game on the road and their D kept them in it for the late win.

    No one ever said any such thing. I honestly don't remember you specifically calling the Bengals out, but I know Ric and I did. Everyone knew they made the playoffs the last two years. It just seems you're mining for a reason to say "Oh gee, look, we're a lot better than the Packers", by using an argument that never existed.

    They beat the Packers.

    Why is it, that people are so quick to say our opponents will be an "easy game" as if they were bums? In today's NFL, very few games are "easy games" and the Bengals have been in the playoffs the past two years and will probably win the division championship THIS season.

    By the way. The Bears took care of business and beat the Bengals, and the Packers are going home losers. The Bengals are winners. End of story.

    And I still say the Bears have an honest shot at sweeping the Packers this year. I know. The Pack is considered "unbeatable" by a lot of posters here. But they can be beat, and I think we have a shot at beating them this year.

    I agree 100%.

    It made me angry that some people here tried to diminish the win, like it was against a bad team. Bunch of crap man. The Bengals win was a solid win against a solid team.

    If you'd like to look back and review, I said the Bengals were a very good team who scared the shit out of me as a matchup (especially with our rookie OL facing their fierce DL). I predicted a tough Bears win 20-17 (got the margin exactly right) only because it was at home and I'm a homer lol. I also predicted prior to the season (to Ric when he was foolishly arguing that the we had no realistic shot to win the division over GB) that the Packers had a very good chance of losing to SF and Cincy on the road which is exactly what happened.

    The Bengals look like a very talented team to me who still makes too many "young team" mistakes. They overcame it today but it cost them in week 1. We will see if they clean that up going forward.

    As far as "easy games" go, yeah there's few that are truly gimmes (maybe Jacksonville). But tonight is a game the Bears MUST WIN on the road. The Steelers are reeling and a mess. If the Bears crap the field tonight they will blow a golden opportunity to take a two game lead over GB. No excuse for losing this game.

    I disagree.

    Bottom line is that we beat the Bengals and took care of business. The Pack are going home right now - losers at 1-2. Next week is their bye week. They are going into that week a sub-500 team.

    I agree with all of that.

    MP, I"m not trying to say you were one of the guys who belittled the Bengals, but some here did. Just like some here are saying we should blow out the Steelers tonight because they are old bums. The Steelers have had a share of problems at 0-2, but I don't believe tonight will be an easy win. Hey, maybe we WILL blow them out and they are bums. But I don't think so.
