Bengals have no bite

The arrest of Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Johnathan Joseph has members of the team angry, embarrassed and concerned that guilt by association has ruined public perception of the team. "Willie [Anderson], Carson [Palmer], John Thornton, the guys who do things right, have been forced to answer for the guys who decided not to do the right thing," linebacker Brian Simmons told the newspaper. "The perception of the team across the country is bad. It's as if it's going around like the plague." Anderson told the Enquirer he and other veterans warned their teammates not to become "No. 9 or No. 10," in reference to becoming the ninth or 10th Bengals player arrested in the last 9 months.

Don't you think that after 2 or 3 arrests they should have had this intervention? When someone starts kicking me in the nads, I sure as hell don't wait until my balls resemble mashed pototoes before asking them to stop.

My poor , poor Bengals.

They need the wisdom and guidance of John Kitna, now more than ever.
