And this is news how?

Of course they're going to move up in the power rankings. And up...and up...and up.

That's what they do under Bill Belichick and Tom Brady & The Brady Bunch. Especially in November and December. Marsha! Marsha! Marsha!

Remember less than 5 years ago.....the only 2nd team in NFL history to go 16-0. A perfect regular season. But not a perfect overall season (regular plus playoff) because they did lose the Super Bowl to the N.Y. Giants under Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning. So the 1972 Miami Dolphins are still the only ones having a perfect overall season record (14-0 regular season and playoff Super Bowl win).

What is news, though is that Bill Belichick is still head coaching a team that he has already taken to greatness.....again and again (Super Bowls and won and made them the 2nd team to go 16-0.) To quote Pee-Wee Herman from the movie "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure", "It keeps repeating...and repeating...and repeating...".

You'd think that, being the kind of "military" coach he is, that he'd want to go a lowly team and build it to Super Bowl champion caliber status.

And there are a lot of lowly teams right now that are going to finish the 2010 season with losing records and they could really use Bill Belichick as a head coach in the 2011 season, especially the ones that have never won a Super Bowl and the ones that have never even played in one.

It was more then Brady, we had Bledsoe in his prime, Grogan was a good Q.B.. It was Robert Kraft coming in getting great coaches in Parcells , and Billechek, their knowledge and intelligence to find the players to win , that fit the system. That people is what it takes to win, look at the Bengals
for example good Q.B. 2 receivers , and a decent Running Back, and they are eating from the bottom. Superstars don't make you a champion , smart players with heart and dedication does.

Amen.

The Cincinnati Bengals need a great defense that can work it the whole season. Have been lacking in that area for a long time.

And I'm getting tired of the superstar posers on the Bengals that just want to get attention for themselves instead of playing the game of football. If Cincinnati had Coach Belichick, that poser nonsense would be over in a flash. But quarterback Carson Palmer, he is a real player and a tough one at that.

And Coach Marvin Lewis has tried his best. I can remember him on TV on krutches coaching from the sidelines.

Plus, they need great pass protection. Remember when Palmer went down from a low knee tackle in that 2005 Playoff game and had to get major knee replacement surgery. And they still don't protect him properly.

I figure that the Bengals could be a champion team if they could get a great defense, great pass protection, and an offense around Palmer that's not a group of posers.

Plus, it wouldn't hurt to have a head coach that has the veteran experience of head coaching a team to a Super Bowl win. The Bengals have never had a coach like that. They have all been 1st year head coaches and so far when they leave the Bengals, they never head coach another team.

Rex Ryan is setting the Patriots up for the big fall. He's positioning the Jets for a playoff game at Foxboro, where he will embarrass Belechick and the Pats in front of their fans. Rex might even bring along Tonya Harding, Sal Alosi, and Fireidiot Ed, and the Hard Knock film crew.
Gotta keep on your toes with Rex.
