Bengals prepare for funeral

Posted Dec 21, 2009

Among the speakers at Tuesday’s funeral for Chris Henry are believed to be head coach Marvin Lewis and quarterback Carson Palmer.

More than 100 people are expected to be in the Bengals contingent that is flying to New Orleans for the visitation and funeral service at the Alario Center.

“We have to be respectful of the situation and they would like to pay their respects to Chris’s family,” Lewis said at his Monday news conference. “We will be very respectful of that situation and their need to bring some closure to it. I think every guy has to deal with this in his own way because they all had different relationships (with Henry).”

One of Henry’s good friends, defensive tackle Domata Peko, thinks his mates need this meeting.

“We’re going down there to say our last goodbyes to Chris and his family and show our support,” Peko said. “And move on from there. It’s cool that our team is going to show its love and support.”

But the one-time aspiring big-league hurler is learning there's only so much he can control as a back-up quarterback in the NFL.

    Max Montoya, the best right guard you don’t know, is the best reason for celebrating 50 seasons of Bengals. Montoya isn’t the only reason of course, but guys like him are the best reasons. Guys like the two Kennys, quarterback Ken Anderson, and cornerback Ken Riley. Guys like wide receiver Isaac Curtis and tight end Danny Ross. Guys like David Fulcher. If fans can remember how good these guys really were, then that’s the best reason. And the stories ....
