The length of the NFL season really shows on a team like the Bengals. A high school team at 0-8 sees the end in a couple weeks.

Mention September 11, 2001, and rooms become quiet. A gaping quiet. Hit by a thought bullet, people freeze. Then eyes look down, around. We remember the moment we heard. Eyes look up. Up. That day, musician Josh Hisle signed up for the Marines, entering "The War on Terror."
