The list is long and distinguished of coaches who can't keep their players in check. The Bengals because of one season continue to come under intense scrutiny. As a matter of fact there was an article written earlier this year about the legal troubles that the Jaguars have had, that they have become the worst in the league, yet it escapes the headlines.
I see your point but I believe there's a difference here. Coaches can't hand-hold individual players that constantly get into trouble. I tend to put more responsibility on the coach when there's a culture of lawlessness among a group of players.
Jones just wanted to live like he was still in the hood. He was arrested more than once between draft day and training camp. At some point these kids have got to realize they've been given a chance to earn millions of dollars and create a great life for their future generations.
