CINCINNATI | It was only a preseason game, but you’d better believe the Chiefs took note of the Bengals’ 48-17 victory Monday against the Packers.

That’s because Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, looked pretty darn good.

With a bulky brace protecting his rebuilt knee, Palmer took the hits, avoided the rush and threw three first-half touchdown passes Monday night in his first preseason game of the year.

By the time the Bengals jogged to the locker room with a 34-7 halftime lead, Palmer had convincingly made his case that he’ll be ready to start the season opener against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Sept. 10.

“I can’t say I felt real emotional,” Palmer said.

“It just felt like a business day, a chance to get some work in.”

Showing no hesitation to take a hard tackle or take off on a desperate scramble, Palmer completed nine of 14 passes for 140 yards and three touchdowns in the half.

“He hasn’t lost a thing,” right tackle Willie Anderson said. “He’s our leader, and he’s back. That’s got to make any Bengals fan feel real happy.”

Unless his left knee swells up in the next few days, Palmer will be on schedule to start at Arrowhead.

“He dropped back, he rolled out, he got hit a few times, he had a chance to run the ball,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “He looked very good, very sharp. It’s still just preseason, but it’s encouraging.”

He looked very good throwing the ball, but I thought it looked like he was favoring the knee still.

Being the meat in an Allen/Hali sandwich a few times early will hopefully rattle him.

Of course the Bengals have a top notch Oline....last year against the Colts they handled Dwight Freeney and the rest of that line without a problem. We're facing possibly the best offense in the league, trial by fire.

They won't fair nearly as well at Arrowhead against Larry Johnson...

Luckily it was against one of the worst teams in the league right now. But they looked very solid. They will have to prove that they can stop the run against us, but of course we will have to prove that we can put on a pass rush to maybe force some issues.

Yeah, Palmer did look good.

According to local radio here, that's supposed to be an 12-18 month rehabilitation and he's already out there? I hope he isn't being pushed too early.

Palmer claims watching from sidelines has helped him play much better too.

Bengals looked good.

Felt bad for Favre, who shoulda hung it up.

People underestimate the Bengals. They won the division and were a playoff team last year with 11 wins. They actually had a better road record than home record winning 6 on the road.

It'll be a good game. Two very different gameplans. The Bengals are okay with a shootout and the Chiefs want to run the ball and kill the clock.

So if the Bengals looking good against the Packers means nothing positive, do you say the same thing about the Chiefs looking good against the Rams?

Sure the Packers suck. And The Bengals went out and did what a good team should do to a a lousy team. They beat the tar out of them.

I don't know why everyone wants to downplay it. Palmer came out and looked like last year's QB.

I am taking the Bengals and the Broncos on our first to games. We just dont have the power to match these two teams yet.

I look for the Chiefs to get on a roll after the Bye, We will be able to play martyball and get some wins, but right out of the gate we need the Chiefs offense of old and not Hermie Ball...

By that time we will have the 49ers and Cardinals to get this D jelling and we will start seeing some changes.

But dont be surprised with 0-2 to start the season.

Palmer looked really good last night, and he did all that without Chad Johnson. They are going to be tough on opening day, but we're playing at Arrowhead, so I think we still have the advantage.

I think alot of us were counting on the injury for good reason.

The guy can play.

On the other hand, it puts pressure on the D, which is exactly what they need.

You either step up, or you don't.

Warrior5
08-29-2006, 09:25 AM
if I had a better assessment of the Chiefs.

As far as the Bengals, they're going to be tough. I do NOT use last season's finale at Arrowhead as an indicator...the Bengals had nothing to gain from winning that game and played safe. As previously stated, they were a playoff team last year with 11 wins, and while their D may be suspect, their O continues to light up the scoreboard with or without Palmer.

The Chiefs? The defense is improved. I can't say the same about the O, and we're certainly not going to find out Thursday night against the Saints.

10 Sep will be a "discovery learning" day for all...

I didn’t see much of Rudi, tuned in ‘bout half way through the first quarter, but what I did see was unimpressive.
I don’t know ‘bout a “full on blood bath” but even as good as Palmer looked, against nearly zero pass rush, I don’t think he can carry the entire team to a victory in Arrowhead. That’s a pretty tall task for any team.

I like this game. The first game of the 2006 season will be with a true contender for the title - IMO. If Cincinnati can keep their team out of jail, they will be a force in the AFC again this year. Nevertheless, I'm optimistic that the Chiefs will hand them a loss in week one. We finally do not have A.S. holding us back on the offensive side of the ball. Write it down, we will not miss him this season for one minute.

I just don't get why everyone is so worried about Cincy Jailbirds? Their D sucks and they can't stop the run. Once we get the lead, we can T-off on Palmer and put him out.

I took Palmer in the sixth round of my fantasy draft. That's looking pretty good right now. However, I think the Bengals could have a disaster on their hands at Arrowhead. The Chiefs won't lose on week 1 at Arrowhead. I just hope Palmer plays well, but the Chiefs win.

That oline scares me more than Rudy. Did you see those holes they opened up for him against the Packers? Rudy is a decent back, but its that oline and passing game that makes him look better.

The Bengals defense is a joke. Their defense is either forcing turnovers or getting embarrassed. They have the worst defensive line in the league, their corners are gamblers who can get ints but can't cover, and their linebacking corps is nothing special (especially without Thurman).

This thread amuses me........if the Chiefs win this game it's gonna be close. If the Bengals score less than 24 I'll be surprised. That is an elite offense the Chiefs are not a dominant defensive team, they are not going to shut that offense down.

By the way Rudi Johnson has back to back 1400+ yard seasons yet he sucks.....right.

Vegas doesn't get emotional. I assume it will open with the Chiefs as a 3 1/2 point favorite. If Palmer has another good outing in the 4th game (assuming he plays) I think it will drop a point.

As of this morning, Ceasar's is KC -3.5 and several other places are KC -3

I'm sure Palmer and the Bengals would love it if Gunther blitzed to no end. The Chiefs have been a bad blitzing team the last few years and leaving the Bengals receivers in single coverage or a zone with Knight and Wesley deep is extremely risky.

Wow.

First of all...


YOUR DEFENSE ISNT GOOD.

Hello.... did you know that? No? You did? Good...

Get it now? We have the best O-line in the league. Its NOT easy to get to Carson. How is YOUR defense going to get to him? Are you out of your mind? Do you know how many goddamned weapons Carson Palmer has to to throw to on this offense? You honestly have no clue, do you? Unless you have Troy Polamalu at saftey with Chris Hope there to cover his ass if he screws up, a saftey blitz isnt the best thing to do. TOO MANY WEAPONS. The pass protection is TOO good. In order to win this game, YOU WILL HAVE TO OUTSCORE US. And since you won't be able to pass on our secondary, because Trent Green(who is, admittedly, one of my fav NFL players) has nobody to throw to, and you'll have to resort to running the ball. But you won't be able to do that because you lost both your starting tackles, and we have Sam Adams in the middle of the D-line who is going NOWHERE. And... what? Your Fullback is gone, too? You're just completely screwed, then.

Guess who we've lost on our offense?

NOBODY. We've returned all of ou offensive starters for the 3rd year in a row. YOUR defense will not be able to rattle them or throw something at them that you havent' seen before. Dick Lebeau aint your DC, so you're basically ****ed in the ass with no lube when it comes to that one. Sorry.

Basically, you MAY have one or 2 good CBs....but.... err.... we have more than one or two good WRs.

Firstly, Ty Law couldnt stop Chad back in 04, hows he gonna do it now?
Secondly, Surtain hasn't done anything since he left the Dolphins.
Thirdly, who the hell is gonna cover Chris Henry?

I really wanna know what makes your defense so much better than it was last year. I can tell you all about ours, I mean. We played all of last season with backups of backups at both saftey positions, but we have GREAT starters now for this season. We have Sam Adams taking over at DT, with Brian Robinson taking Jumpy Jr's spot at LDE where he EXCELLED with the Bears, and has so far this season, also. We dont have Odell for the first 4 games, but Brian Simmons, our former starter at WLB is back at his original position of MLB with Landon Johnson, our team leader of tackles back in 04, starting at WLB, along with David Pollack who had a full year of training camp after missing the complete thing last season. Blah blah blah. Rudi J is faster and leaner, but stronger than last year. Blah blah blah. basically, we're better than you. Accept it.


Also, to the cocksuckers who wish injury on Carson.... go to hell

It is refreshing to see some Cinci fans feeling good about their team. I mean, the Bungles stunk for SO long, it's good to see the fans finally able to have a little pride.


BTW, I hope you will stop by and congratulate us on our W after the game. It would be pretty classless to come in, talk trash, then disappear after your team loses.

Don't worry Pastor.....

He'll stop by to make excuses.....

Just like he did last year.

Don't you Bengals fans have some police blotter you should be catching up on?

This thread amuses me........if the Chiefs win this game it's gonna be close.

Their defense is bad and rush defense is terrible.

They were pretty much KC last year only they had a horrid rush D but a respectable pass D (mostly due to turnovers) while scoring a tit-load of pts on offense.

They're also an emotional team. If we were to catch them after a few wins I'd be scared, but we're talking game 1 here...

I hope they enjoy their season. It's never fun when reality smacks you in the face.

bold post by badassbunghole, even the most optimistic bengals fan expects them to lose this one according to some other forums i've seen.

1. carson on gimpy leg
2. chiefs in arrowhead
3. herm will have the chiefs a more physical team, perfect for beating up a prettyboy team like the bungles.

I agree with the Bengals fan to a certain extent. That is an elite offense with one of the best lines and reciever corps in the game. I don't really agree with the Sam Adams take though, he's old now and Buffalo ranked at the bottom of the league in run D with him there last year.

I don't really see much defense being played by either team in this game......
