1)BENGALS: So Vegas has set the teams over/under at 6 games. Am I crazy to think this team should easily win 7 or 8? Easily?
Also the Bengals have not come to a long term agreement with Shane Graham (picture above). Im kinda in between on this one. I think Shane is a good guy in the community and a pretty damn good kicker. He's not the kinda of kicker I like. Big footed. But he's got accuracry. I think the 1yr deal is a good idea. Because it give Shane 1 more year to kick for that big contract. If he proves he deserves the long term contract this year, I say give it to him. Just don't let him back at King Island.
What are the 3 positions that concern you the most with the Bengals? I would still say WR is #1 for me, then Center #2 and #3 would be the offensive line. All three have too much young unproven talent.
2)REDS: Whatever the experts are saying, this team isn't dead yet. But they need a great start to the 2nd half. Not an average start. They got 4 games vs. the Brewers and I think the Reds have 4 pitchers (Bailey, Arroyo, Harang, Cueto) that are better than the Brewers. If they can win 3 out 4 this team is on the right track. I would make a couple of changes though. I would bring Drew Stubbs up for Willy Taveres right away. Then I would let Chris Heisley come up also and play replacing Robert Manuel. Let these guy play while they are hot. They both should start 2 games this series together. Rotate Dickerson, Gomes, Nix in with them. See if either of these guys can give this team a spark offensively. Something has to be done, and obviously its not going to be getting Jermaine Dye or Scott Rolen.
