    Greg Myers probably - Bengals had been known for hard hitting safeties like David Fulcher before he came along and infected the secondary with weak arm tackling.

    Ickey's comeuppance was turning into a steak salesman, selling out of one of those freezer trucks. I don't know how many rebuttals I got from him when I didn't want to buy. And to think I was just watching him in the Super Bowl a few years before that.

    I forget, what did Ray Griffin do?

    I can understand Dillon and Spikes. They were sick of the losing and just wanted out while they still had something left in the tank.

    Carl Pickens was a real cancer to the team and got my vote. He took the Bengals' money and still complained.

    Other names to mention are Coy Bacon, James Frances, and Mike Reid.

    James Francis I can understand. Coy Bacon and Mike Reid were before my time, but I had always heard Bacon was pretty good. I heard Mike Reid got out of football to save his fingers, as he was a concert pianist. Did they have some history that time has polished clean?

    IIRC, Coy was pretty bad into drugs, then he got turned around and is now an evangelist.

    I've thought about going to hear him speak before.

    Coy Bacon was a helluva player but a pretty bad dude. He played in the pre-ESPN days so much of his off-field exploits were glossed over. Let's just say his was an unsavory character. Lots of violence, guns, and drugs.

    Mike Reid was a great player and got out of football while still at an All-Pro level. He left the Bengals high and dry for a music career. Nothing wrong with that, I just wondered how people felt about his leaving.

    Bacon talks to students about highs and lows of NFL career

    By TIM STEPHENS
    The Herald-Dispatch

    HUNTINGTON - At 6-foot-6, 330 pounds, when Coy Bacon speaks, people listen.

    About 40 Marshall University students listened intently to Bacon on Tuesday night at the school's Campus Christian Center when the former NFL All-Pro defensive end spoke to MU's Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddle.
    ADVERTISEMENT

    "Cocaine, marijuana, pills, alcohol, I did them all," said Bacon, an Ironton native and an assistant football coach at South Point High School. "I remember I spent $25,000 on cocaine in a month and a half. All the money I made playing football, I lost it all. I lost all of it."

    From 1967 through 1981, Bacon was one of the fiercest pass rushers in football. An All-Pro defensive end with the Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins, Bacon was a star on the football field and led a terrible lifestyle off it. Bacon's transformation from drug-addicted, womanizing renegade to rock-solid Christian began the morning of Aug. 15, 1986. Bacon answered a knock at his door and was met by a gunshot that nearly killed him. The bullet passed through him and into a gas stove that Bacon said didn't explode only because of God's grace.

    "I was in that hospital bed hooked up to machines and ready to die," Bacon said. "Jesus came down and told the death angel to leave. He saved me right there."

    A much-sought speaker and choir member at the First Baptist Church of Burlington, Bacon, 62, tries to reach as many youngsters as he can. While many attending Marshall's huddle hadn't heard of Bacon before Tuesday, they came away impressed.

    "It was good," said Amanda Williams, a Thundering Herd softball standout. "I enjoyed it."

    Several more veteran FCAers remembered Bacon well.

    "Man, he could play," said John Sutherland, an assistant coach with the Herd's women's basketball team. "He was the Javon Kearse or Michael Strahan of his day."

    Bacon appreciated the praise -- to an extent.

    "Strahan couldn't carry my shoes," Bacon said, with a laugh. "Back when I played, football was football."

    Strahan, a standout with the New York Giants, holds the official NFL sacks record, with 22 in 16 games. In 1976, before sacks were an official statistic, Bacon had 26 in one 14-game season.

    "That sacks record is mine," Bacon said, again with a boisterous laugh.

    It is not the football records that Bacon cherishes, however.

    "Every breath I take, I know who does it for me," Bacon said. "The Lord could take me right now, if He wanted to do it. He could take you, too. Do for Him. Tell other people about Him. Do it while you're young."

    Bacon said the lifestyles of many adults and children alike trouble him.

    Bacon said he is concerned about the media's influence on youth.

    "Coke, alcohol, cussing, chasing women, I still talk about those things,"

    Bacon says. "I know that Christ can make you new. He made me new. You can't hang with people doing the wrong thing and do what they do. They'll try to get you to do that. Don't let them. Don't let them take away what you have."

    Ralph May was head football coach at Chesapeake High School when he first met Bacon in the mid-1960s.

    "He was quite an athlete," May said.

    The Rev. Bob Bondurant agreed.

    "I saw Coy play basketball many years ago at Richwood High School,"

    Bondurant said. "He was a good player. He could run up and down that court."

    Sutherland was impressed with Bacon.

    "What I like about him is he is a bold man," Sutherland said. "I think we all, and that includes me, need to be that bold. I really admire that in him."

    Bacon related how he has a pacemaker, has overcome a shooting and a bout with cancer.

    "The Lord has been with me through it all," Bacon said. "He brought me through all of it."

    Re: Which Former Bengal Do You Dislike the Most?

    I voted for Pickens, but that's only because my choice wasn't on the list:

    JEFF BLAKE

    Always found a way to blame a loss on everyone but himself. There's a reason Dennis Green cut him right after taking the job in Arizona, and months before he actually had to make a football related decision. He's a cancer.

    You know, if some golddigger tried to smear my name and extort money from me I'd probably taunt her after she failed, too. May not be classy, but neither is being a lying thief.

    It was the height of tasteless, and is of a piece with behaviors that suggest certain members of society are above the law.
