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.

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
