We try to stay away from posting XP on football players' run-ins with the law unless there are on-field implications. Well, here's an on-field implication. After he was arrested for assault and battery on his wife last night, the Dolphins cut Chad Johnson (or Ochocinco, or whatever is technically his name right now). I always thought Johnson was just kind of goofy, but a good guy at heart. This arrest is a bit disheartening. But from a football perspective, we won't be debating whether last year's struggles in New England were a one-year blip or whether Johnson is toast. It looks like he's toasted himself.

An upset-fueled Week 4 led to new expectations for surprising teams like Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Texas A&M, but poor performances at LSU and Notre Dame led to early-season firings.
