Ocho Cinco Causing a Stir

Chad being Chad (emptythebench.com)Apparently, Cincinnati‘s favorite showman is at it again. Chad Johnson was asked by a Miami newspaper about his feelings for a potential trade to the Miami Dolphins. Johnson’s response was less than desirable for most Bengals fans

“Hey, that would be cool. Where’s (Bill) Parcells at?” Johnson asked. “I need to win now. I’ve done a lot of things, I’ve broken a lot of records here, I got the yards, I’ve been to the Pro Bowl, and I’m kind of fed up with the same thing every year.”

If Johnson is fed up with the same thing every year, he should imagine how the fans feel. Why is it that no professional athlete is ever able to put themselves in their fans shoes? You think you’re sick of losing, we’re sick of watching a very talented team underperform for the second straight year, then have one of it’s star players complain about losing, as if he had nothing to do with it.

Why can’t these athletes ever realize that whining about wanting out rarely, if ever endears you to fans? You’re paid tens of millions of dollars, win or lose. It doesn’t sit right for me to hear Chad talk about how instead of working extra hard, becoming a real team leader, and turning this thing around, he just wants out.

And by the way CJ, exactly how close do you think the Miami Dolphins are to fielding a playoff team?

    I would love to see Ocho on the opposite side of D-BO!

    Send him to Philadelphia. Fans here would love him.

    ‘Send him to Philadelphia. Fans here would love him.’

    Isn’t one mouthy wide receiver enough for you guys.  He’d be Terrell Owens part deux

    ocho cinco would look sweet in midnight green…what are the chances he actually gets traded though?

    Hey, No. 85 will be available with Eddie Drummond hitting the road. Interesting…

    And you hate Terrell Owens? Wow.

  • Bo Vandy

    "what are the chances he actually gets traded though?"

    I’d say they’re actually pretty good.  He’s never had a great relationship with Marvin, if the Bengals could get a top notch defensive player or two, I could see it happening

  • charlotte

    he should go to dallas we need another great reciever. . .  and he should contact me

  • charlotte

    I really like chad he has done alot for cincinnati he does bust his ass and you got to love I’m a die hard dallas fan but somehow #85 has won me over he’s awsome. . . .

  • Bo Vandy

    Charlotte, I’m a big Ocho fan myself, but if he’s started crying about how he wants out, then show him the door.  Of course, get something of value for him in return.  I don’t want to see him traded for a 5th round pick or anything

    Hey TO was loved in Philadelphia, until he started throwing McNabb under the bus, told his coaches not to speak to him, and claimed he needed more money to feed his family.Before all that garbage started he was the most popular athlete in Philadelphia.

  • Bo Vandy

    "Before all that garbage started he was the most popular athlete in Philadelphia."

    And you want the possibility of going through that again

  • caw

    Chad Johnson/Ray Lewis are good pals ;)  And he wants to win NOW, maybe like with a veteran team a year away from a chad johnson short of a super bowl…hmmmm.. that will have a fresh GENIUS coordinator… plus he could dance and have all the antics he wanted we encourage that sort of thing

  • Bo Vandy

    Baltimore would need to get a QB before Chad agreed to go there.  You’re more than a wide receiver away from the super bowl.

  • chad go to eagles

    chad go to eagles now!!!  u love ur craziness homie
