Cincinnati BUNGLES

Cincinnati BengalsCan someone…anyone tell me what the heck is going on up in Cincinnati? I can’t remember in my lifetime one team with so many run-ins with the law in such a short time period. Cincinnati Bengals guard Eric Steinbach is the most recent player to be arrested after driving his boat under the influence on the Oho River this past weekend. He is only one of five Bengals players who have been breaking the law. We certainly can’t forget wide receiver Chris Henry who has been arrested FOUR times since December ’05 and is on trial this month in Orlando, Fla. for a gun charge. Then you have newly drafted defensive players Frostee Rucker being arrested for spousal battery and A.J. Nicholson for burglary and grand theft. Finally let’s not forget Matthias Askew who last month had to receive the effects of a stun gun because he resisted arrest. I really don’t think you can blame coach Marvin Lewis for not controlling his players because these are grown adults doing these things outside of his supervision. I do think though it’s time for some major steps to be taken before the Cincinnati Bengals have to play their games on a prison field like in “The Longest Yard.” Is it a coincidence the tiger stripes slight resmeble prison stripes??? I think not!
