    And you know what else? Marvin & Co., I'm sure, laid down the law with this dude when they drafted him. He had a rep before he ever got here. So you know Marvin HAD to have said, "Dude, you're on a short leash. We're not playin' around here. You've got a rep, now go out and prove everybody wrong." And he SCREWED IT UP!

    Re: Chris Henry arrested..........again

    I'll pull this thought out once again---how often do you read of riches building character in a person? Give a person riches that already has questionable character, and rather than expressing gratitude for their good fortune (yes, I know they work hard to get where they're at, but it is also fortunate that their talent is in an industry oozing with cash), they are more likely to have their poor character exposed in grandiose ways.

    So, I don't consider Chris Henry to be stupid. He simply has character flaws that making tons of money only exacerbated. Same song, 2nd verse of millionaire professional athletes.

    I think it was Richard Pryor who said something like: Give a guy a lot of money and a lot of extra time and it's a recipe for disaster.

    Did you all check out this link?

    I think he should get extra jail time for having an NFL salary and trolling around in a 1984 vehicle.

    The car's only one year younger than he is.

    And it says it was a passenger car so that rules out the "classic Z"--or anything like that--possibility. Maybe he was takin' his mom's Gremlin out to get it pimped.

    Re: Chris Henry arrested..........again

    They were saying on WLW the other day, after these two incidents occurred, that the Bengals/Lewis seem to be drafting (IMO - taking chances) on players that other teams pass on because of character flaws.

    When Lewis was asked about this, and shown the list of players, he responded that they are going to start paying closer attention to that aspect.

    I really don't (or can't) fault Lewis who may be thinking that he can somehow turn these kid's lives around with the proper level of guidance/coaching.

    But one can only do (or take) so much before they have to cut ties because it then starts to reflect on the team/organization as a whole.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    But we must remember that the Bengals career rushing leader was one of those picks before Lewis and company took over. It can work out... not often, but it can.

    Here's what gets me... a guy causes or gets into trouble while in college. Then he starts making serious cash... they think this person will start behaving when he is getting serious cash? I think the exact opposite and it has been proven more times than not. Like throwin' gasoline on the fire IMO.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Marvin Speaks:
    Players' behavior 'foolishness'
    BY MARK CURNUTTE | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

    Marvin Lewis is not happy with the back-to-back legal problems encountered by two of his Bengals players, wide receiver Chris Henry and linebacker A.J. Nicholson, but said that their issues should not detract from what the team has accomplished on and off the field.

    Addressing the media for the first time today since the weekend arrests of Henry for driving under the influence and Nicholson’s for burglary and grand theft, Lewis called their behavior “foolishness.”

    “The thing I wanted to address was a little bit of the negative vibe and the foolishness we've had attributed to some very poor choices by a couple of our players, particularly with the association of people,’ Lewis said this afternoon, after the team completed practice.

    “The biggest part of that is none of that is going to tarnish all the good that's been done both on the field and off the field,” Lewis said. “It does not affect our football team. Our guys have made very positive steps on the football team. And I think the entire body of work and what guys are doing is reflective of the quality (and not) some poor decisions, some poor associations, and some selfishness that way.

    “We'll move on and they'll be dealt with as they are allowed to be dealt with if things come of this.”

    Lewis said he was embarrassed by Henry and Nicholson’s legal problems.

    “I told the people that, yes, you embarrassed us as an organization, myself (and) our coaches when these things occur,” Lewis said. “Right, wrong or indifferent, there are certain things you're asked not to be a part of or around. When it comes out it comes out, but once it comes out, your name is never cleared. The damage can be done in the larger portion for you and basically for us."

    Lewis said neither player has made the team.

    "They're not necessarily part of the team,” Lewis said of Henry and Nicholson. “Nobody's made our team at this time. What happens publicly is people think this is a distraction for our football team. At this point in the season it obviously is not because these guys do not have a vested right on our football team. They have not earned an opportunity to be on our football team.”

    Henry’s arrest was his third in the past seven months. He faces a Friday court date in Clermont County.

    "That bothers me when someone doesn't quite understand social laws, no question that bothers me,” Lewis said.

    The league’s collective bargaining agreement with the NFL Players Association and the legal system govern both players right now. The team’s hands are essentially tied, for now.

    "I don't need to comment on that. That's bigger than me,” Lewis said. “But at some point, you have to make a decision whether this guy is good enough for our football team, and decisions can be made that way, as well. Because if you can't function, then obviously you may not be good enough because I can't count on you."

    Henry came out of West Virginia with a reputation for not getting along with teammates and not taking coaching well.

    “We didn't draft a guy who had this issue coming in here; Chris Henry didn't have a problem with the law coming in here,” Lewis said. “If he had, he probably wouldn't be here.”

    Nicholson turned himself into police in Tallahassee, Fla., on Saturday and charged with burglary, grand theft and vandalism in connection to the alleged theft of $1,700 electronic equipment from the apartment of a former Florida State teammate. Nicholson said this afternoon that he could not comment on the case and directed questions to his agent and lawyer.

    It is believed that Nicholson could have been trying to retrieve electronics that belonged to him.
