    The Difference Between The Steelers and Bengals

    Steelers fan here.

    Want to know the difference between the organizations? The Steelers suspended WR Santanio Holmes for the game against the Giants. Even though he will be charged on a misdeamnor, the Steelers went ahead and put him on the inactive list for the Giants game.

    Now I ask, would the Bengals have done the same thing?

    The Steelers are hoping he will miss just 1 game instead of the 4 games the NFL can suspend him for.

    Maybe. Back in September of '06 when Odell got his DUI, Chris Henry was a passenger. Despite not being charged with any wrongdoing, Marvin Lewis suspended Henry for the following game against the Patriots. Of course, while Henry might not have been charged with any illegal activity inn the incident, reports are that he was so drunk he puked out the window.

    However, there seem to have been plenty of instances where the team took no action for off-field problems. I think it really depends on the player being a repeat offender or not.

    BTW, I think the big difference between the two teams is talent and scheming by the coaches. Dick LeBeau is a freaking wizard.

    The difference is if the Bengals would suspend him for a game and the NFL would suspend him for 3 more games where as the Steelers will probably get a pass because they are a supposed class act.

    Well, they are being proactive, but Santonio's marijuana problem isn't anything new. I went to OSU, it was a pretty well known fact that he smoked weed. Him getting caught was the least surprised I've ever been at any news.

    If the Steelers really wanted to be law-abiding citizens, they'd suspend Hines Ward for some of his hits :

    I would go as far to say that the Steelers care even less than Mike Brown does about his players getting into trouble.

    Exactly the opposite. The Steelers actually have a history of letting players go if they've been involved in drug activity. Bam Morris is a great example. He was charged in 1997 after police found 4 kilos of pot and one gram of coke. Morris was sentenced to only 200 hours of community service and a fine of $7,000. The Steelers wanted none of that.

    Holmes' suspension by the team is nothing at all surprising considering the violation and if he slips again he'll most likely be off the squad. Steelers' ownership and coaching staffs do NOT tolerate things like the Bengals do. They do not wait for a fifth arrest (Chris Henry) before taking real action.

    1997 eh? Great example.

    Meanwhile the Steelers employ 3 guys right now who have all been arrested in the last year.

    The difference is they hire full round....GOOD scouts and a real GM.

    They get rid of coaches who do not produce results.... Bill regularly replaced offensive coaches.

    Football players who break the law is now an oxymoron.

    If the Steelers were such a clean franchise the players from their glory days wouldn't be dying off at an alarming rate thanks to their rampant steroid abuse. Not to mention the handful of current arrests.

    The Bengals are a bit of a mixed bag. They let an oaf like Chris Henry make mistake after mistake, but cut Matthias Askew, who actually won a lawsuit against the city of Cincinnati in his legal issues. Here's the reality, for the Steelers, the Bengals, and any other NFL team: if you can play, you're excused, if you can't, you're not.

    How many felonies has Chris Henry been convicted of?

    March, 2008 - allegedly assaulted a man; determined to be false identity
    December, 2007 - allegedly violated probation; found not guilty
    November, 2007 - allegedly assaulted a valet; no charges have been filed
    June, 2007 - allegedly assaulted a minor; claims were determined to be unfounded
    May, 2007 - allegedly failed drug test; false report
    May, 2006 - allegedly engaged in a sex crime; no charges have been filed, and someone may be arrested for filing a false report

    January, 2007 - pleaded guilty to providing alcohol to minors
    June, 2006 - DUI with a BAC that was, until recently, at a legal level
    January, 2006 - arrested for concealment and aggravated assault with a firearm; pleaded guilty and avoided jail time
    December, 2005 - pulled over for speeding; was driving without a valid license and insurance, and a small amount of marijuana was found in his shoes
