Default And the Bengals never learn.......

LEWIS ACKNOWLEDGES SHIRLEY “A RISK”
Posted by Michael David Smith on April 27, 2008, 6:19 p.m.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis acknowledged today that there’s “a risk” associated with selecting fifth-round draft pick Jason Shirley of Fresno State, who was off most teams’ draft boards because of a series of his long history of off-field trouble.

“It’s a little bit of a risk, yes,” Lewis said. “There’s a lot of guys who have gone over the last two days with more substantial things hanging over their heads.”

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Shirley acknowledged today that he has a trial pending on two counts of driving under the influence and one count of hit-and-run.

“I have a court date May 21. And right now, everything’s going kind of smooth. I can’t really get into the details about it, as advised to me by my lawyer, but it’s going smooth,” Shirley said. “It’s looking real good, and hopefully I can get that expunged off my record.”

The Bengals are unique among NFL teams because of their 10 player arrests over 14 months in 2006 and 2007 — they know they’re not going to get the benefit of the doubt when they collect players of questionable character. So given that, why draft Shirley? Was he really so much better than the next-best player on the Bengals’ board that drafting him was worth the headaches associated with his off-field problems? When will the Bengals learn not to draft guys who show up to team headquarters and answer questions with “hopefully I can get that expunged off my record”?

Considering the good character of the other guys we drafted and removal of most of the bad character guys we had (hopefully Chad will follow suit soon), I can handle one gamble here and there. The only thing it will really affect is the image of the team...and who cares about that; it's the Bengals, they'll always be a media scapegoat...and image doesn't get you wins.

Exclamation Re: And the Bengals never learn.......

Maybe the bungles I mean bengals actually take pride in being the team with the most crimlnals. I wonder if they actually think that having the most criminals on their team as a championship title. They're certainly dumb enough to think it is.

Just a little secret: your team currently has more players with criminal problems on their roster than the Bengals do.

Anyway, you guys are just jealous that we got Corey Lynch.
