    "We had a psychic lady go walk around Paul Brown Stadium doing a seance trying to ward off evil spirits," recalled the Chargers guard who started his career in Cincinnati in 1998. "That's a little different."

    Spirits in Cincinnati these days are more glum than evil, but it would be wise to put that sour feeling in perspective. This comes after a disappointing first half as four losses in five games left the Bengals at 4-4 ---- a record that 10, heck, even four years ago might have had the Queen City planning a parade.
