Do Arrests = Wins ?

Posted by Mike on October 2, 2008

Personnel people throughout the NFL are continually trying to find new ways to get their teams an edge on winning. Maybe it’s drafting on intelligence and character, as opposed to ability and skill level, or maybe you get veteran players, instead of having  young players with fresh legs. Theories like these are debated in front offices every offseason in the NFL, to see what a team should do for the following year. But you can throw these theories out the window, because Chad Ocho Cinco has figured out what it takes to win the league, and he let the press in on it at yesterday’s press conference, from the Cincinnati Enquirer:

Question: Do you think all the Bengals that have been in trouble have resulted inyou guys struggling on the field at times?

Ocho Cinco: “No man, that has nothing to do with it. That has nothing to do with it. Think about this: You remember our ’05 season right? Our ’05 season we were unbelievable. Our ’05 season is the year everybody went to jail and got arrested. That year everybody got in trouble. So maybe the bad was a good thing. It sounds dumb to say, but look at it. We have cleaned house and nobody is
getting in trouble anymore, no DUIs, no arrests, now we’re getting our a– whopped. Maybe I don’t know, maybe I should go out have a drink, get in trouble. I don’t know what it is. Our ’05 was one of the best years here in history. It was one of those years where there was a lot of distractions.”
