My Friday Brain Drain: NFL Style

Pro Football NYCSenior Writer IApril 4, 2008

Here we go...I had one of those weeks again.

You know, the kind where people pee on your leg and then try to convince you that it's raining?

Yeah well...the NFL has kept law enforcement agencies busy again this week.

"Pull over! License, registration, NFLPA card...and keep your hands where I can see them!" 

The Cincinnati Bengals cut WR Chris Henry yesterday while he was still in jail after being arrested for the fifth time in three years. He should have been released from jail yesterday, but no one was around to fit him with a court monitoring device, so he had to spend the night. 

The night? 

This kid is a one-man crime wave; he shouldn't be on the streets. He's been arrested five times since 2005.

He's the Willie Sutton of the NFL. 

As it turns out, I was right.

Many of the morons who lambasted me for chiding Matt Leinart about serving minors alcohol have to apologize.  Fox Sports has also written that many of Matty boy's guests were underage, and questioned local authorities about the incident.  They are not investigating, they say since no complaints have been made. 

Case closed—this time.

Arthur Blank says he believes in second chances, leaving the door open for the possible return of jailed QB Michael Vick

Are you sure this is the same guy that founded Home Depot?  Good thing he doesn't run that business like he runs the Falcons, or there wouldn't be any place for us to buy a nail gun at 2 a.m.

Other nonsense... 

Brett Favre may not be retired after all.

Apparently there are rumors on the left coast that Favre is interested in making a return to active duty.

No shock there. 

He's one of those guys that is going to have be forced out of the game. Like a boxer who thinks he has one more fight in him, Favre cannot face the fact that he MUST retire and stay retired, or run the risk of leaving the game on someone else's terms...hopefully not a defensive end's.... 

The NFL owners meetings seem to be a colossal waste of time.  They should televise them on C-Span to completely invalidate their importance.

As the NFL Draft gets nearer, I hear the confidence in Mel Kiper Jr's voice begin to wane.  More and more people have begun doing what he's been doing his whole adult life.

I'm not quite sure what that is...I'll get back to you when I figure it out.
