Not one of my most creative headlines, but sometimes it is just best to be blunt.
Thanks to the homie SportsbyBrooks for providing the pictures, but we can now see why Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was so upset with Smith’s offseason donut eating errrrrrrrr regiment.
The funny thing is that Lewis seems to want to blame Alabama for the Bengals soon to be bust 1st round draft pick. Check out the quote:
“Colleges have mastered the art of secrecy. I don’t think we get to know everything we need to know about players. Some colleges, I think they know where Jimmy Hoffa‘s buried.”
I assume that means the Bengals overlooked the problems he had at Alabama, that he went missing from the scouting combine, that he was grossly out of shape during his personal workout and that from even a casual observer appeared not ready to handle the responsibilities of being a NFL player.
It is easy to blame Alabama, how about blaming yourself and your scouting department.
The Bengals have enough talent to be a very good team, if Lewis doesn’t get it done this year he won’t have to worry about any Universities lying to him for the next NFL Draft.
