OMG!! This speaks volumes about the Bengals!!
Henry has made a complete fool of himself and the Bengals ever since he arrived in Cincy and he's going to make them look even more stupid as soon as he has another off the field incident....we all know it's only a matter of time until he *****-up again.

I saw an article in todays paper here that said as of August 1 teams can be fined for their players off field misdeeds. Wonder how much money they can afford to give up??? lol

This just shows how utterly stupid the bengals organization is. I cannot believe that they are going to give this guy another chance. And when he screws up, we will all be here ready to say, 'I told you so!'

Yea this is really an embarrasing move for the Bungles Organization...You cut the guy to make a stand on player conduct,..then when TJ and Chad get gimped up in the preseason you go crawling back to Henry...Just goes to show the Leadership in Cinci at it's best.

Here's an idea....why don't you pick up a reciever out there who works his *** off and obeys all the league's rules and give him a shot?

"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. We had hoped to guide him toward an appropriate standard of personal responsibility that this community would support and that would allow him to play in the NFL. ... But those efforts end today, as we move on with what is best for our team."

Any odds on how long it takes Henry to get in trouble again.

Maybe they can bring back Odell Thurman while their at it.

They will never learn.

08-19-2008, 10:13 PM
Why they decided to bother with this guy again is beyond me. He is a disaster waiting to happen time and time again.

08-19-2008, 10:21 PM
When is Chris Henry getting arrested again.

08-19-2008, 10:57 PM
man, if the cici players would just stay in ohio they would not get in trouble. It might not be CA, new york or whatever. But ohio can keep you out of trouble. Not alot to do.

The Bungles are giving Henry chance number what -7? 8?

This reeks of desperation - and is a great example of why that franchise hasn't been a winner in 25 years. The NFL suffers when the criminals are not made accountable. I get giving a kid a second chance - but at some point the kid needs to show he deserves it - other than being fast with good hands.

Each year you never know what team is going to surprise and play above expectations - there are always a few. We do know it wont be Cincinatti.

This should really send a positive message to the rest of the team.....

08-20-2008, 11:38 AM
yep, handled in typical bungles fashion.....

Doc: Steep price to pay for Henry

Chris Henry arrived today, his latest last chance grinning grotesquely, like a smile in a funhouse mirror. The Bengals have him back and they think it’s great. Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us five times. . .

Choose your explanation: The team needed a wideout to stretch the field, after Chad Johnson went down Sunday. Henry is on a short leash, making next to nothing on a one-year deal. Everyone deserves a sixth chance. Mike The Redeemer wanted Henry here, so here he is.

The Bengals re-acquired a capable wide receiver. All it cost them was their soul.

The head coach got trumped by an owner with a forgiving heart and a poor track record for assembling football teams. Marvin Lewis might coach the Bengals. He doesn’t run them.

“Not interested," Lewis said a week ago, after Henry’s agent said he’d had talks with the team regarding his client. Lewis’ terse response came without qualifier. He didn’t say “Not interested, unless Chad messes up his shoulder." He didn’t say, “Not interested, unless the owner says we are and cuts my legs off to bring back a guy as reliable as a 1979 Chevette." Nope. Marvin was not interested.

Only now, he is. He’ll have to coach a guy he openly and forcefully didn’t want. He has to deal with a locker room that knows who’s boss, and it ain’t Coach. You could argue this sort of tug happens all over the league, and you’d be right. But it doesn’t generally occur with a player who has been suspended for 15 games of his 50-game NFL career, not including the first four this year.

The internal talks about Henry were taking place before Johnson sprained his shoulder, so Lewis knew how Brown felt about things. Maybe the coach tried a power play and lost. Regardless, Lewis has to coach a player he has no use for and manage a locker room wondering who the sheriff is.

This isn’t about Chris Henry, per se. Maybe he’s a new man. Maybe he’s running for tenor in the Vienna Boys Choir. Good for him. Everyone has a right to make a living.

This is about how forlorn a franchise the Bengals continue to be. It’s about an owner who hasn’t presided over a playoff victory in 17 years. Mike Brown has put on the line whatever dignity and credibility his franchise has, for a good-not-great player who has been suspended almost as often as not.

Didn’t the Bengals draft wideouts in the second and third rounds? Didn’t they take three in eight rounds? Oops.

Their credibility on the “character" issue? Zero.

Their stated desire to have “good people’’ on their roster? Fraudulent.

Their record this year with Henry, as opposed to without him? Remains to be seen. Educated guess: He won’t be the difference in more than a game. The Bengals have issues at center, issues with the pass rush, concerns with the cover abilities of their corners, wonders about the health of Rudi Johnson.

Solution: Bring back Chris Henry.

Mike Brown has a genuine interest in Henry’s well-being. The owner has a jelly spot within him for the miscreants he has hired, all the way back to Stanley Wilson. It’s not wrong or na´ve to appreciate Brown’s Father Flanagan side. He is a decent man.

Not that it helps him succeed in business. If you’re going to run your team like a halfway house, if you elect to practice social work without a license, you might want to win more than you lose, occasionally.

Even if you’re a bottom-line Bengals fan whose outrage is limited to losses to the Cleveland Browns, you will acknowledge that adding Chris Henry for 12 games doesn’t mean the playoffs are up next. Successful teams have players they can rely on, players who can rely on each other. Then there are the Bengals, whose owner enables irresponsibility in the name of stretching the field.

“His conduct can no longer be tolerated," was Brown’s response in April, after Henry was arrested a fifth time. Charges eventually were dropped, apparently causing the owner’s heart to flutter. What is different about the player now is anybody’s guess.

We’re about to find out. Not that it matters. It’d be nice if the Bengals stood for something, other than losing. ________________

No offense to anyone whom it may offend, but Ohio is a pretty crappy state. This is coming from someone who lives in Jersey.
