boltssbbound said:Henry had a monster day, but the guy needs to pull his head out of his azz.
Man, even after the Bengals had a talking to about good behavior from the new Commish, and Henry said, "I have the best job in the world," he goes and gets into a car with Odell the drunk. Glad to see the lesson has been learned.
Someone needs to explain the concept of the limo service to these geniuses.
Odell, Chris; Listen up.
For a mere pittance, you can have a fat guy named Vinnie show up at your house with a limo and drive you anywhere you want to go. Sure, Vinnie will smell like B.O. and Stetson, and he'll look as if he combed his hair with buttered toast, but at least he'll keep you guys out of the slam.

CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman was arrested early Monday on a drunken driving charge.
Thurman, already serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, registered 0.18 percent on a blood-alcohol test -- more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent, police said.
Police Capt. Dan Gerard said an officer working near a DUI checkpoint saw Thurman drive a sport utility vehicle across a double-yellow line and stopped him. Thurman was with two other Bengals players, but police declined to release their identities.
However, rookie receiver Reggie McNeal told The Associated Press that he and receiver Chris Henry were in the vehicle with Thurman. He declined to go into detail about what happened. Neither player was charged.
"Just a misunderstanding," McNeal said, as he left Paul Brown Stadium on Monday afternoon.
Thurman was taken to the checkpoint, being operated by police and the State Highway Patrol, and given a breath test, Gerard said. Thurman was released to a companion who was sober to drive him home, police said.
A court appearance was scheduled for Oct. 2, the day he was scheduled to return to the team.
If convicted, Thurman could get a tougher sentence because of the high blood-alcohol level, patrol Sgt. Jon Payer said. The average sentence for a first-time offender in Ohio is three days in jail or an alcohol-education program and a $500 fine, he said.
A second-round draft pick out of Georgia last year, Thurman led the Bengals in tackles and had five interceptions as a rookie, helping Cincinnati reach the playoffs with its first winning record since 1990.
The arrest is "certainly a concern since he recently was suspended, but this is an entirely new case," Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said Monday.
Thurman has one game left on his suspension. He is the sixth Bengals' player arrested in the past year.
Cincinnati (3-0) defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 28-20 on Sunday to stay in a first-place tie with Baltimore (3-0) in the AFC North.
