Most of the attention in the Carson Palmer trade seems to be going to Oakland with the quarterback, and we asked you about that side of that deal yesterday. But what about the team Palmer leaves behind in Cincinnati? The Bengals are quietly off to a 4-2 start and find themselves flush with first-round picks. Is this a team of the future?

The genius of Mike Brown?

Bengals owner Mike Brown certainly takes plenty of shots for how he runs the team, but does the haul he got for Carson Palmer validate him on at least this topic?


Are you sold on Andy Dalton?

Brown also said Andy Dalton can be a "cornerstone" of the team. Dalton is off to a better statistical start than even Cam Newton, but are you sold?


Next year's Detroit Lions?

With Dalton, A.J. Green and the NFL's No. 2 defense, are the Bengals the next down-and-out franchise to emerge as contenders?
