The League

THE QUESTION

Bengals and LJ Good or bad for NFL?

As a small market team, comprised of players with checkered pasts, is the Cincinnati rebirth a feel good story, or PR nightmare?

FROM THE PANEL

NFL's David and Goliath

As opposed to vilifying the Bengals for turning the corner this year they should be commended and hopefully emulated by other teams.

Who dey meet LJ

Larry Johnson: count your blessings and please, fall quietly in line.

"Evil" Bengals are good for game

Police activity aside, the league always needs a bad boy image team for people to root against.

Low risk, some reward

I don't foresee this signing as a return to the Bengals of old, when arrest records polluted half the roster.

Bengals earn stripes

Much like Larry Johnson, the team will look to leave its old reputation far behind.

LJ risk too high

The Bengals are in no position to be rehabilitating anybody's image.

Good luck Cincinnati

If he would just play football and not act like an idiot, this would even be a good idea. Unfortunately, Johnson doesn't just play football.

Cinderella cats

Fans and the NFL should be encouraged that the Bengals and Larry Johnson are proving that parity is alive and well.

Winning pardons all

If Larry Johnson produces, or at least doesn't get in the way of the Bengals winning, he'll be forgiven.
