    I'd have to think, based upon the ratings for the postseason matchup, that the first Steelers game is going to highly sought after. Will depend on what other games are also on that weekend. Would love for this to be SNF, to hear Al and Chris have the call.

    Cleveland...meh...just don't see the rest of the country being that interested in the Hue/Cincinnati connection.

    I think the New England game would be a contender. Maybe on MNF?

    But, I think the Denver possibility may hinge on whether Manning is back. If he's not, then I could see Dallas sliding in there instead. Thanksgiving would be a bonus, then.

    Looks like you thought they could win more than seven in the regular season based on your first post and my bolded.

    One guarantee is that ESPN, cbs, nbc and the nfl network will all want the Bengals/Steelers matchup. All the same channels who the majority of their talking heads condemned both teams and 2 players in particular, especially Father Phil Simms and Sister Mary Jim Nantz who were " shocked and outraged" at the violence of the last two games.
    No doubt they will all want it and the commercials the week before will all show those same hits over and over. And no doubt the announcers for the game will lead off with "we hope we just get a good clean game with no extracurriculars". The producers in the truck will be laughing while they say this!!

    I think I see around 9-10 wins next year. Just hope not too many PrimeTime games. I could see Browns, Pats, Broncos for Primetime.

    Probably Dallas. Those guys could be 0-whatever five years straight and would still get treated like a marquee franchise.

    Ah but as the Home team the Bengals get the choice of Locker Room, Practice Field, Hotel....and most importantly they will be able to dictate the Jerseys worn. I'm thinking they go with the Orange.

    Not to mention they get compensated the same amount of money as the average money they make when the game is in Cincinnati.
