Munoz On Chad’s TD Celebration – “It’s Stupidity”

Anthony Munoz, the only Cincinnati Bengal in the Hall Of Fame, seems to have taken offense to the recent Chad Johnsoncj-hof.jpg TD celebration on Monday Night Football. If you live under a rock, Chad scored in the first half on a touchdown catch from Palmer and proceeded to do a celebration which had him wearing a mocked up Hall Of Fame blazer.

The back of the blazer had this script, “Future H.O.F. 20??

Anthony Munoz was on the Tony Bruno show yesterday and made his feelings known by simply saying, “It’s stupidity”…

He also went on to say it was “pathetic” and a display of “individualism” in a team game. He said 1 guy didn’t score, 11 guys scored.”

And I guess Daryl Johnston, the former Cowboy also feels strongly on the issue…..saying this on Sirius Radio recently.

“If Irvin was barely walking the line, no way Chad gets in”

“Plus, he was talking all week about how great his celebration would be, it was even that good“.

After some digging Daryl, we found that through each WR’s first six seasons, here is the tale of the tape on Irvin vs. CJ….

Irvin – 337 catches, 5694 yards, 34 TDs
Chad – 466 catches, 6925 yards, 41 TDs

Here is video of Chad catching the touchdown and donning the jacket.

Jonathan Ogden Not Impressed With Bengals D

ogden.jpg

Despite not being able to stay on the field for a full quarter, Ravens offensive lineman Jonathan Ogden decided to give the Bengals some bulletin board material for the next time they play each other. Here is what Odgen had to say regarding his injury and the Bengals defense.

“All-Pro left tackle Jonathan Ogden said he’ll probably have an MRI on his left big toe to determine how significant the injury is. He’s already had the tendons in his toe surgically repaired once, but doesn’t think his new injury will require another surgery.

“I knew I was hurt when [Justin Smith] bull-rushed me,” Ogden said. “It just gave out, and I knew I couldn’t go on it.”

When I asked him how tough Smith and Robert Geathers were to block, Ogden rolled his eyes and said, “They ain’t Freeney and Mathis.”

Check out the full article here.

Dear past your prime Ogden. Get over it and stop your whining!


Bengals Crack Top 10 In Prisco’s Power Rankings

I can’t say I am a big fan of Pete Prisco and his Power Rankings over at CBS Sports, but man does it get lots of attention! Prisco says it is unreal that he gets truckloads of hate mail for simply placing a team in a spot on these weekly rankings. Even so, it is worth a mention that our Bengals jumped up a spot after the impressive win Monday Night to hit #10. Here is Prisco’s quote….

10 Bengals · Trends 11

“If the defense continues with the improvement it showed in the opener, watch out for the Bengals. We know the offense will score.”

The top 5 were unchanged from Prisco’s preseason choices, but Denver jumped from 9 to 6 after their squeaker W over Buffalo. And rounding out the rankings at #32, dead last, is this week’s opponent, the Cleveland Browns. Ouch!


Robert Geathers Nominated For Player Of The Week

geathers_robert.jpgWell, Robert “Jumpy” Geathers was certainly all over the field Monday night in the win over the Ravens, and now great news as he has been nominated for the Defensive Player of the Week over at NFL.com. I was most impressed by the interception and short return for Geathers, he look huge let incredibly athletic during that play.

Here are Geathers offical highlights from last night.

Made four tackles, one sack, forced a fumble and intercepted a pass in the Bengals’ 27-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Geathers’ first-quarter fumble recovery set up the Bengals’ first touchdown. His third-quarter sack and forced fumble led to another touchdown, and his fourth-quarter interception also resulted in a touchdown.

Get over there and vote for Geathers!

Antonio Chatman Not Gone For Long

The Bengals made two roster moves today after their win last night against thechatman.jpg Ravens. The more notable of the two is that Antonio Chatman has been re-signed only 4 days after his release on September 7th.

You have to hope that this will bolster the receiving corps depth and is not a direct consequence of Tab Perry looking awful last night. The Bengals signed the former Cincinnati Bearcat to a one year deal and released backup tight end Nate Lawrie.


They Said It – Our Favorite Bengals-Ravens Quotes

We like to scour the online news articles after gameday so you don’t have to. Here are some of our favorite quotes from thepalmerinterview.jpg locker room after last nights game from both Bengals and Ravens.

I knew I had sewn it up,” Geathers said. “I work on it all the time. I knew I had gotten my hands under there.”

“It’s always a defensive lineman’s dream to get in the end zone,” Geathers said. “I fell a little short tonight.

“I ran out of gas a little bit. I don’t know how I let an offensive lineman catch me.”- Robert Geathers about his interception.

This will never happen again, putting my team in a position with six turnovers. This will never happen again.” – Steve McNair after his embarrassing performance Monday.

They were going to have to cut my leg off to keep me off the field,” – Shayne Graham about his injury.

It’s tough to make a call like that with that situation in the game,” Heap said. “From my point of view, he’s grabbing my jersey and I try to get his hands off and go make a play. But I’m not calling the game and they are. And you got to go with what their calls are.” – Todd Heap speaks about the questionable interference call late in the game.

Bengals Fend Off Ravens On Monday Night

bengals-ravens1.jpgThe Cincinnati Bengals did something they had never done before last night, they won their season opener on Monday Night Football. Of course, they had never opened a season at home on Monday Night before, but the milestone still has plenty of meaning for a team that entered the game with lots of question marks. The Bengals pulled the win out in what ended up being a sometimes ugly, sometimes thrilling start to the season 27-20. Some bright spots and some that were not so bright but in the end, the W is all that matters. Let’s take a look at the important parts of the game we highlighted yesterday in our preview…..

  • Run Defense – this has been a sore spot for the Bengals for years, and the running offense has been lackluster for the Ravens for the past couple seasons as well. But with the addition of Willis Magahee to the Ravens, he could give the Bengals fits all night. ***Bengals “hold” the Ravens running attack to 107 yards and 4.3 per carry. Not tremendous, but much better than some previous Bengal Rushing D’s.
  • Todd Heap – Heap is a Bengals killer and always has been. He had 113 yards against Cincy last year and over 100 and two scores in 2005. The Bengals need to contain Heap in the red zone. ***Bengals keep Heap out of the endzone, and just barely do so. The combination of the horrible penalty on Heap late and his equally horrible missed opportunity on the last play lead to only 4 catches for 29 yards.
  • Turnovers – While this is a point of emphasis every week in the NFL, it is especially true against the Ravens. The Bengals cannot afford to give the ball away and let the Ravens D score. With Ed Reed and Ray Lewis waiting to pounce, Palmer and the boys really need to take care of the ball. *** We hit this one on the head, Bengals go +4 on turnovers, and do not win unless they do.
  • Bengals O-Line – With 3/5 of the line banged up the worries about keeping Carson protected are high. If the line can hold well for the Bengals tonight, and all season for that matter, it will make a huge difference for this offense. *** Great protection in the first half for Palmer leads to the TD strike to Johnson. The second half not as good but Palmer still is only sacked once on the night.

Bengals Debut on Monday Night Football Tonight

Chad and Ray Lewis after a game last season…...

It is almost time, tonight the Bengals have their home and season opener of 2007 against the Ravens in front of a national audience on Monday Night Football. The Bengals seem to show up pretty well for evening games at home, and despite facing the defending division champs tonight, we like their chances. Here are a few things that need to go the Bengals way if they want to win this one.

  • Run Defense – this has been a sore spot for the Bengals for years, and the running offense has been lackluster for the Ravens for the past couple seasons as well. But with the addition of Willis Magahee to the Ravens, he could give the Bengals fits all night.
  • Todd Heap – Heap is a Bengals killer and always has been. He had 113 yards against Cincy last year and over 100 and two scores in 2005. The Bengals need to contain Heap in the red zone.
