I know he's on our team, but it kills me that he's putting up these great stats in a contract year. You still have to let him walk at the end of the season, no matter how well he does [sorry, Emily]. In light of today's victory I just had to drop this stat tonight:
The last time Cincinnati had a shutout was December 3, 1989, also against the Browns. Reagan was President, I was in junior high, and the Cold War had just ended.
So you might say it's been a long time.
Thursday will be huge. A victory against the Ravens means a Bengals play-off trip.
