    Suffice to say, the guy did his time for the crime, but Goodell's putting the wood to him for another year.

    And Jared Allen gets two games *snort*


    Agreed. The guy was amazing, and even though he's had a lot of problems, I would still take him back. As it is, our LB corps is looking pretty good anyhow, but it would be stellar with Thurman in the mix.
    Yeah, he was definitely pretty good his rookie year. I just think that Goodell needs to come up with almost like an interval system to deal with players. It could be something like this:

    DUI: 1-2 games
    Dogfighting: 1 year
    "Making it Rain": forever

    haha

    aka he lied and was caught in it, if i recall correctly (maybe a bengal fan can help me out here)

    if that's truely the case as i'm remembering it, the guy is a mess , and it's a shame because he could have easily won DROY the year merriman won it, odell was very productive

    Personally, I think Goodell is coming down a little too hard on this guy...it seems like he is not being consistent in his dealings with players. He got accused of assaulting two guys, but they later dropped that charge, so it looks like he is going to end up missing two years for skipping a drug test and a DUI? Seems a little harsh to me...

    What do you think?
