Wild Card Throwball: Bengals @ Texans

The Bengals were founded by Paul Brown, namesake of the Cleveland Browns, after being booted in a management struggle with Art Modell in the ’60s.

Now the only model Art is if you want to be the epitome of the greedy community blackmailing NFL owner but Paul was no prize either and it would be poetic justice to have the Bengals and Ravens face off and both lose while the souls of their former leaders drown each other in a slime pit in Hell which is why, as surprising as it is, I have some smidge of sympathy for a team from Texas who’s main sin is to choose the largest media market available after the carpetbagging departure of the unlamented Oilers.

Something I didn’t know is that this is exactly the same as last year’s matchup except for the fact that the Texans will be starting their starter instead of their third string back up (btw, they won that game).  They backed into this position in the most humiliating way possible however, losing their last 2 games in embarrassing defeats.

For the Bengals the question is whether Andy Dalton is any better than last year’s 3 picks indicate.

I’m told streaming video is available here but you can’t prove it by me.  Perhaps you have to register, something I’m reluctant to do even though I have several e-mail boxes just for crap like that.

    naturally, I love Tigers, especially the Bengals. And for as many friends I have that live in Texas, their politics are extremely regressive to say the least. my blog partner, ek hornbeck tell me the Bengals are a terrible team because of Paul Brown, the team’s original namesake, who was “a total jerk.” He says that I should root for the Texans because they’re the lesser of two jerks.

    Now, as a non-sporting blogger who knows about as much about American football as I do about quantum mechanics, my feelings on this are leaning towards cheering for a Bengals win. Besides, I like their uniforms.

    I’m sure the Bungles got their hopes and dreams inflated by their season-ending victories over Pittsburgh and Baltimore. But those hopes and dreams are being crushed by the Texans. LOVE IT!
