    I had a $5 bet on when Tank Johnson would be arrested again. I called for the weekend of the opening game. i had faith in him. I thought he would stay straight that long.
    Oh, well. Johnson just has that look of a lifer on him.

    I'm glad they waived him. I'm tired of losing money on him.
    Johnson might be too dumb to drop the race card.

    Tank Johnson has got to be a total moron.He must have a brain the size of a pea, and no self discipline whatsoever.

    The NFL loves recycling D linemen all the time. It's the NFL, nothing suprises me anymore [​IMG]. My mind says no, but my guts say yeah.

    Marvin Lewis would love to have another player with a "pea-sized brain" on the Bengals, but while his heart says yes, his gut says no. [​IMG]

    The day I knew Tank was basically an 88 IQ was the day I saw him with a stupid grin walking out of his garage after being arrested for owning a Waco type gun collection. Then the next day he was in the news for the club shooting... [​IMG]

    interesting article regarding Tank Johnson:


    http://www.dailyherald.com/sports/rozner.asp?id=326611


    Even strictly on football level, this made nosense

    What were the Bears thinking?


    Seriously.


    From a purely football perspective, didn't they see any need to plan for the absence of Tank Johnson?


    Set aside, for this discussion, their enabling of Johnson and the predictable outcome of that policy, since it's no secret the Bears only talk about character when it suits their purposes.


    But from the football side, it's as if they thought he might not get suspended at all, and if he did, they'd have him for more than half a season.


    The Bears really believed the suspension would be light (4-6 games), and that Johnson would return rested and with a vengeance.


    Were they the only ones who didn't see how this was going to end?


    Are the Bears so arrogant after winning a terrible conference that they didn't think the Tank Johnson saga was destined to conclude badly?


    Even Johnson seemed to know there was only one way this was headed, but the Bears did nothing to prepare for Johnson's departure.


    Having Tommie Harris coming off an injury is scary enough, and if he's not 100 percent at any point this season, Brian Urlacher's Sundays just got a lot more difficult, because the Bears are suddenly thin at defensive tackle.


    Assuming Harris does return and stays on the field  and at this point that's merely an assumption  the Bears still have lost Johnson, Ian Scott and Alfonso Boone, the latter two having left via free agency.


    That's potentially devastating to what was a very effective tackle rotation last season when all were participating. But now joining Harris are two players  Dusty Dvoracek and Antonio Garay  who never have started an NFL game, and Anthony Adams, hardly a blockbuster free-agent signing.


    So never mind, for today, their reckless policy of giving Johnson a handful of second chances, received only because the Bears thought Johnson could help them win.


    From a strictly football perspective, their decisions have been irresponsible, and they might have looked at Johnson's presence at any time in 2007  if it actually happened  as a gift.


    Or maybe more like a miracle.


    In any case, the Bears are lucky they reside in the NFC North, or they might have some questions to answer.

    Update: according to blood level tests, tank was not legally drunk.

    This means that Tank is not a complete idiot- just a part idiot.

    He should have been kicked off the team and out of the league for his gun
    charge, so I couldn't care less about the false DUI.

    I hate to beat this issue again, but ... Al Gore III was arrested for speeding and drugs. Does this make him the only white person as dumb as Tank Johnson-- or is he dumber?
    I need your opinions.

    Sons of the rich! [​IMG] What is most amazing about this story is that he was speeding in a Prius, I thought I heard somwhere that he was busted going 100 MPH, it must have been down hill. At least Jr. is trying to be "green" with his hybrid vehicle, unlike his energy wasting parents.

    Gore mansion uses 20 X the amount of energy of other homes
