In preparation for tonight's matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, I interviewed lead blogger Kirkendall at Cincy Jungle. There's somewhat of a connection as the Bengals' starting QB, Carson Palmer, tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee during a playoff game with the Steelers. Eerie. Like, freakishly coincidental. Palmer has spoken about how he still struggles with the mental aspects of that injury. Will Brady suffer the same? Well, enough of that. First, a big shoutout to Kirkendall for answering my questions. I'm looking forward to some good football tonight. Now, on to the interview.
2) If Carson doesn't play, J.T. O'Sullivan and Jordan Palmer look to get some reps. Some reports say Jordan will receive the lion's share of time. Does that mean he's won the backup position battle?
3) After an unproductive 2008, Chad Ochocinco appears to be back to his former level of production. It's only preseason, but do Bengals fans have reason to be stoked about "The Chad"?
4) Playing in the AFC North must be tough these days. Lining up against the Steeler's and Raven's defenses is no cakewalk - and Cincy does it twice a year!! Any thoughts on this year? What offensive improvements have the Bengals put into place to combat these defensive juggernauts?
