The beauty of Direct TV's NFL Ticket is that you can watch every single NFL game. Whenever I flipped to the Ohio Bowl -- which featured the 0-3 Cleveland Browns at the 0-3 Cincinnati Bengals -- that blessing instantly became a curse. I can't even imagine what the experience was like for those poor fans who actually spent their hard-earned money on tickets. Congress, can we at least get a bailout for Bengals and Browns fans?

Jamal Lewis shouldn't have intervened and stopped teammates Braylon Edwards and Derek Anderson from fighting on the sideline, he should have intervened and stopped fans from watching. The 20-12 eyesore was so awful that the best play of the game was Edwards' post-TD air guitar riff. LeBron James just texted me that he's bolting his home state for New York if he ever has to watch these two teams play again. No joke.

Speaking of home states, I have to offer my sincerest apologies to my home state of Missouri. Last week, I claimed the Show-Me State boasted the worst tandem of NFL teams. I was wrong. The Kansas City Chiefs rocked the rival Denver Broncos at Arrowhead , and the St. Louis Rams will be better after handing the worst coach in the league his pink slip. In fact, I'm not so sure the best football team in the Buckeye State isn't, well, the Buckeyes.

To make matters worse, the Bengals didn't even have Carson Palmer. You know, the former Pro Bowler. And when I say former, I mean former. Palmer should pull an Ocho Cinco and change his name, because he's obviously not the same quarterback he used to be. His replacement, Ryan Fitzpatrick, was even worse. Who is Fitzpatrick? He's tall, athletic and a Harvard grad. Uh, so is Barack Obama, but does that make him an NFL quarterback? Fitzpatrick was so horrific that his 44.1 QB rating was closer to his college GPA than his IQ. Good thing he has that Ivy League degree to fall back on.

As for the Browns, one team eventually had to win, right? Edwards might have gone all Jimi Hendrix in the end zone, but the rest of his performance resembled a balding baby boomer trying to keep up with his teenage son at "Rock Band." Part of the problem was his quarterback, who has returned to being plain ol' Mr. Anderson after his Neo-like 2007 campaign. Derek, I suggest that you go out and get yourself a Brady Quinn voodoo doll, and do it fast. Quinn's wait to become the Browns' starting QB won't even last as long as his green room draft layover if you keep this up.

Romeo Crennel said he considered giving Anderson the hook for Quinn, but "wanted to give him another chance." Giving the Bengals or Browns another chance is something that I suggest no NFL fan does any time soon. The game was so unwatchable that even Kellen Winslow Sr. clicked the "off" button on his remote. Chad Johnson, er, Ocho Cinco might not have danced when he finally scored his first touchdown of the year, but I was dancing when this game was finally over. The two teams play again four days before Christmas, but if they really want to give their fans a present they'll not show up.

The state of the race for the No. 1 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft is now clear, and that state is Ohio.
