Esiason rips Marvin Lewis' influence on Chad, TO

Count CBS analyst Boomer Esiason as somebody who doesn’t think much of Bengals coach Marvin Lewis’ influence on his two star receivers.

A week after Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens left the field before the first half was complete – and then didn’t give a clear explanation as to what happened – Esiason said Lewis doesn’t have the receivers’ respect.

“He's obviously not in control of these two guys because a lack of respect shown by T.O. and Ochocinco going into that locker room,” Esiason said during the CBS’ NFL Today. “I would have told them stay there.  Go do your tweeting and reality shows and we'll see you after the game.”

Esiason makes a good point. Owens and Ochocinco have become known for starring in offseason reality shows – and, in Ochocinco’s case, for tweeting during games – and neither have been effective on the field this year. Midway through the third quarter of the Bengals-Ravens game today, the two have combined to catch four passes for 56 yards.

It should be noted that Ochocinco left the field early again before halftime today. Presumably, he was getting IVs for cramping – a typical Ochocinco problem.

"and neither have been effective on the field this year" - since when is 12 catches for 159 yards and a TD in one game "innefective"?  That was Chad's stat line in Game 1.  Yeah, they lost the game, but to call that innefective is absurd.  Obviously, Josh just wanted to reiterate Esiason's point, but he needs to check the facts before spouting out his opinion.  The media will continue to look for ways to derail Chad and TO all year.  I realize this is their own fault due to their love of attention from the media, but wait until there's actually an issue before trying to conjure up one in your mind....

Oh, and I forgot about the tremendous D provided by Leon H, et al, today.  No drama on that side of the ball.  Just all business.

Hey, I just picked up Shipley.  Pretty soon he will be the go to guy for the remainder of the season.   Maybe when Jordan gets a higher percentage of owned/played, those two will pay attention. 

Did one of those guys get hit in the face guard today?  In the end zone?  For a possible TD? 

Thank goodness for Dayton's Nugent.

OUCH!  No one gets open on Baltimore's defense.  That is not news.  To beat them, you have to fight for every catch and every yard.  Chad and Terrell will be just fine this year.  They'll be a big part of winning games for the Bengals, and as a matter of fact, they were a big part today.  It is not about how many catches or how many yards any receiver has.  But the timing and the importance of the where they come is HUGE!  They made a few tough catches today, and in other cases, they drew defenders downfield so Shipley could grab 5 balls.  Does that make them ineffective?  I don't think so.  WHO DEY!?

Owens and Ochocinco aren't producing not because they don't get open. It's becasue Palmer has been missing his targets by overthrowing, leading too much, or throwing behind his receivers.
