Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh form a dynamic duo that would be even better if Johnson wouldn't insist on only running routes that take him in the direction of TV cameras.
One of the best known sayings in sports is: "Defense wins championships." Probably the only better known saying is: "No team with a defense as awful as the Bengals' will ever win a championship."
Over the past few years it' been next to impossible to break open for a big gain against the Baltimore defense. The main reason for their impermeability? Most of the guys on their squad have spent enough time in jail to know that you never let an adversary get behind you.

Say the Browns are flying out to play a West division team and their plane goes down in the Rockies. Romeo Crennel' body could feed the team for a month. Sure, the likes of Bill Cowher, Brian Billick and Jon Gruden have Super Bowls, but they'd only feed a team for a week Ã¢â‚¬" tops. With the typical NFL appetite, that just won't do.

Ask any French general.
