There will not be any playoff victories for the Bengals this year, but at least they can enjoy a little schadenfreude.

Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict seemed to take some pleasure in learning Steelers coach Joey Porter was arrested over the weekend after Pittsburgh beat Miami in a wild card game.

“Isn’t he a coach, LOL” Burfict wrote on his protected Twitter page.

Porter has history with the Bengals, starting with his time as a Steelers player and continuing last postseason when he was on the field and drew a crippling 15-yard penalty on Adam “Pacman” Jones that set up an easy game-winning field goal.

According to the Associated Press, Porter was charged early Monday with assaulting a doorman at a bar and a police officer who intervened.
