    The Harrison situation was addressed in house by the team and James took the initiative to help solve the problem. That kind of behavior was not what was expressed by Cedric at the time of his incident (either one). According to him, he had nothing to do with it. Was Harrisons incident a black eye for the organization as well, YES, but he took the steps necessary to resolve the situation.

    As far as someone being cleared of charges, why would you bring up Santonio. He was charged in two different incidents but was not convicted of either. He has shown no other problems off the field since before his rookie year. I don't believe that is an issue, maybe he was just a kid in the wrong place at the wrong time. We have all been mixed up with people that probably weren't best for our lives. Ever think of that? Unlike your boy Chris Henry, our young reciever knows how to keep out of trouble.
    AK, I'll give you credit for saying Ced Wilson's incidences were related but the majority if not all of the Steeler fans that visited our boards around that time would not admit that. And Steel Torch/Steel Curtain 43, you have access to those boards, show me where you or anyone else said that Ced Wilson was guilty of DV at in the first situation.

    Either way AK, you have to admit that if Harrison gets into a similar incident, he's not getting cut unless it's something really serious...

    "His conduct can no longer be tolerated," Brown said at the time. "The Bengals tried for an extended period of time to support Chris and his potentially bright career.

    The Bengals said nothing about their decision to re-sign Henry, but they didn't have to - their actions spoke volumes.
    So here are the names you brought up Steel Life:

    Henry, Thurman, Rucker, Nicholson, McNeal, Askew, O'Neal & Brooks

    Henry I have no excuses for.

    Odell, I will tell you that Marvin Lewis and Mike Brown (Surprisingly), did not stick up for him which is why he never got another chance to play after his rookie season. Which is a good thing.

    Rucker. All of his problems were in college. Eventhough he hasn't done anything wrong since then, I still personally think he is a POS. I'm glad he hasn't done sh it since college. Hopefully we will finally cut him this season. If anyone thinks I'm just saying this now, look up my posts on the bengals boards since 2005 and you'll see I have been saying his pick was a mistake since then.

    Nicholson. Not even worth mentioning.

    McNeal. Although I ever liked this pick, he had no issues coming out of college. His only incident was with a bouncer outside of club. Seriously that is not a major issue. I'm glad he is gone, but I won't jump all over him.

    Askew. Although he sucked from a talent perspective, he was right in a moral sense. He did NOTHING wrong and he won the case against the Cincy police department. People might get charges dismissed here and there but for a player to win a case against the police department, you know there is something more to the story there.

    O'Neal. DUI. Not sure what to say there.

    Brooks. He is an idiot...


    I agree that we appear to court these types of players. Most of them are not even that talented on the field, which is even more distrubing. I think it is ok to take a risk ever so often with these types of players, but we took too many players with issues in too short of a timeframe...
    Jom,

    I don't think the case with Harrison would be as you expect. I think that if the situation continued to show signs of trouble, and the trouble persisted then he would be dismissed. There is examples of this happening with the Steelers organization in the past, i.e. Bam Morris. Bam played great in the Super Bowl for the Steelers and then got in trouble and was let go. It didn't matter that he was a player that was producing for the team.

    I think the fact that James was proactive and has not run into anymore trouble showed the team that he is taking the right steps to resolve his personal battles, but if he were to get in trouble with the same type of situation he would be gone.

    ...and he would NEVER be resigned two months later when the front office started to realize how bad the team really was. You can try to be a dedicated Bumgals fan all you want and rationalize but the organization has always been and will always be second rate both on and off the field.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Cowher would unlikey take a job with a team and organization as disfunctional as the Bumgals. He is not going anywhere where his record for possible inclusion in the HoF is going to be tarnished by multiple losing seasons while he rebuilds a team. Cowher will likely only go to a team that is close and need him to push them over the top. I still say the most likely locations are Carolina and Philadelphia.
    Not only that, Cowher isn't going anywhere he can't get top dollar and he wouldn't get that in Cincy.

    Re: Bumgals do it gain--Bringing back Chris Henry

    The Bengals have struggled in the past when Henry was not on the field. Last season, the team was 2-6 while Henry served an eight-game suspension and 5-3 in the second half of the season with Henry in the lineup.
    This part makes it sound as if goblin-face was the reason behind the Bengals success. That of course is BS.

    The passing game didn't produce anymore with Henry in the lineup. Actually, it produced less. Carson Palmer still threw for less touchdowns, less yards (around 250), and less YPA.

    And the fact remains that CH did diddly-squat against us last year.
