Adding Joe Mixon shows Bengals' true colors

Hope I’m Wrong…But…

Odds are, if you have a shred of decency and an ounce of morality inside, you would revile that person. Sure, religion tells you to forgive, but would you ever forget? Would you hire that person to be a representative of a multi-million dollar business? Could he the President of the United States?

Whoa. I’m getting carried away. But seriously, all these things all scare me, to be honest. One thing I do know is we are in for another wild ride this year in Cincinnati.

Joe Mixon will be forever live under the microscope for when he hit Amelia Molitor, especially during his football career. His playing days in Cincinnati will be marred by his past and it will always cast a shadow over his football accolades. Mixon says he’s changed and wants to prove it.

"“It changed me a lot as a person — the way you think, the way you carry yourself, or go about things. The way Oklahoma helped me, I can’t thank them enough either. I’m going to keep doing the right things around the community, on and off the field, and I’m going to prove to them why they kept me. Leaving Oklahoma, I still have their name at end of the day. I came from through there and I’m going to do whatever I can to make them proud and make them happy. I’m looking forward to doing that with the Cincinnati Bengals as well,” – Joe Mixon said during his draft introductory press conference."

I hope I’m wrong about Joe Mixon being a bad fit for a Bengals organization that’s endured so many years of pain and suffering. But if I’m right, you can expect me to tell you…I told you so.
