    I don't know if the Cowboys were this bad in less than one full season. The Bengals are becoming more like the Portland Jail Blazers. Marvin Lewis better become a disciplinarian in a hurry. Before he came in, the Bengals were the laughingstock of the league because they could never win. Now that they have talent, they get all the bad ones.

    I am wondering if they are just going to go ahead and get with the Ohio Department of Corrections to help redesign a striped jersery for them.. They already got the colors orange and black.

    I don't have much in the way of a joke to add, so I'll simply echo the sentiment: glad we have a character focus (as much as can be had in pro football.) Resisting arrest over a parking ticket ... how stupid can you be? Either that or the Cincinnati police are extorting their players ...

    IDIOT

    When officers instructed Askew to put the vehicle in park, he got out and took a "fighting stance," the report said. As an officer attempted to put a handcuff around one of Askew's wrists, he pulled away and was tased, according to the report.

    "Bad Character" begins at the TOP (not exclusive of the owner).......and filters all the way down to the bottom. Those decent players not part of the "elite" club feel like outsiders and will in time seek a route out of ***** as soon as it comes open.

    LEWIS LOSING HIS TEAM?

    A source close to one of the members of the Cincinnati Bengals who doesn't have a criminal record tells us that the locker room in the Queen City is dangerously close to revolting against head coach Marvin Lewis based on his collection and coddling of players with questionable backgrounds.

    And the source says that the growing resentment traces to (you guessed it) the locker room brouhaha involving receiver Chad Johnson, receivers coach Hue Jackson, and Lewis, which erupted moments before the team took the field for the second half of the playoff game against the Steelers.

    Though Johnson has yet to be arrested, the perception within the team was and is that he does his own thing and gets his own way and Lewis lets him. It's a dangerous message to send to the guys to whom a different set of rules apply.

    The offseason has only exacerbated the situation, per the source. With the addition of guys like Frostee Rucker, A.J. Nicholson, and Ahmad Brooks and the continuing problems of guys like Chris Henry and Odell Thurman, many of the non-turds on the team are convinced that Lewis doesn't care about character.

    As a result, we still think that Lewis needs to stand up and take decisive action against one of the guys who has done things that he shouldn't have done. Instead, recent comments from Marvin indicate that, like a mom who's convinced that her baby would "never do something like that," the head coach will never acknowledge the possibility that one of his players might really and truly be a piece of poop.

    Asked by Mark Curnutte of the Cincinnati Enquirer whether Henry is worth the trouble Lewis said, "It's not clear . . . let's see what trouble he is in. Don't prejudge him. You can't prejudge him."
    But it's not "prejudging" if the concern is Henry's propensity for getting himself into the back seat of a cruiser. He's accomplished that feat four times since December. Regardless of whether he's ultimately convicted or pleads guilty to any of the charges, a guy who continuously gets arrested is a problem.

    Still, teams like the Bengals hide behind concepts such as "presumption of innocence" as a means for overlooking the fact that, at a minimum, men like Henry put themselves in the wrong place at too many wrong times. Whether he goes to jail is a matter between Henry and the various jurisdictions in which criminal charges are pending. Whether his employer, which among other things should be concerned about the public perception of its product, is going to tolerate a string of arrests is a different issue.

    So by declining to prejudge the question of whether Henry is actually guilty, Lewis and the Bengals implicitly are conceding that they don't care about guys getting arrested.

    And if they don't care about guys getting arrested, they don't care about character.

    And if (as we're now told) the guys who don't get arrested four times in six months don't like it, there will be problems in 2006, and beyond.

    lol:

    There is a Bengal fan in the forum that swears Chad Johnson is not a selfish player and is "all about the team". Interesting to see that CJ has got the TO syndrome now, acting like he knows more than his coaches and deciding that doing his own thing is more important than doing the team thing. :hmmm:
