Ochocinco Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco talks so much trash on Twitter – and in real life! –  that it’s hard to figure out* what he’s joking about, what he’s serious about, and what he’s serious about but soon will be joking about.

*And sometimes, he’s just moody and doesn’t want to say anything at all.

That leads us to a couple tweets he tapped out today:

No. 1) I love Cincy,but coach Lewis is mean to me now so I think I am gone :(RT @philpoling: @ochocinco sounds like someone wants outta Cincy? Lol

And …

No. 2)
He has gone over board to publicly chastize the one guy who loves him i'm so hurt RT @leegoettl: @ochocinco aren't most coaches mean?

Ochocinco, we must remember, is a child. A sometimes funny, sometimes maddening, but a child nonetheless (I’ve seen him catch a TD pass during practice and, in celebration, jump into the arms of a startled C. Trent Rosecrans (now of the Eye on Baseball blog ) and I’ve seen him in tears after a regular-season loss at Jacksonville).

And when coach Marvin Lewis slams him in the media – which he has done quite a few times since last season ended – Ochocinco’s feelings are legitimately hurt. The two have worked together since the Bengals hired Lewis in 2003, and they’ve been through many ups and downs together.

So, when Lewis makes fun of Ochocinco’s reality show or about his soccer career, Ochocinco doesn’t know what to make of it. So, he takes to Twitter and whines and talks about leaving the Bengals.

The reality is, Ochocinco is owed $6 million in 2011, and he probably won’t be back because his pain-in-the-ass attitude isn’t really worth it anymore. But it won’t be because Ochocinco is the one making the call. Instead, Lewis will be the one escorting him out of the building.

I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to disagree with the Marvin is a good coach comment.

"In his eight seasons with the Bengals, Marvin Lewis has compiled a 60-67-1 regular season record."

That doesn't exactly scream HOF coach to me.  Alot of people try to blame alot of it on having to deal with Mike Brown.  Someone else in the thread allready commented that maybe another coach could of controlled/gotten more out of the players they had.  You won't find many other coaches with this lack of sucess over such  a long time still holding jobs in almost any major sport.  Much less one as competitive as football.

Sorry Chad, you're not going anywhere any time soon.  As soon as the lockout is officially over, techinically the Bengals have two choices.  They pick up Chad's option for 6 million or the let him become a free agent and PAY him 4.5 million.  Which one do you think Mike Brown would pick?  Mike Brown has a tendency not to pay players that aren't playing for him, so he will pick Chad's option up.  It will only cost him an extra 1.5 million so I think he will pick up the option instead of losing Chad entirely and having to pay him 4.5 million.  That's just not Mike Brown's way of doing things.  As bad as Chad wants to go and I want to see him go, he won't get out of Cincinnati unless he is traded.  At least for this season, that's how it will be.  Mike Brown could trade him, but wait doesn't someone else want to be traded also?  Oh yeah, how's that going for you Mike Brown?  So yeah, Chad won't be traded, so expect to see him in a Bengals uniform.  Mike wouldn't even give him to the Redskins for 2 first round picks in 2008.  Mike Brown is a fool

ocho..johnson...whoever he calls himself does his job?? please. His job is on a team, he might be the biggest joke of a team player i've ever seen.
Lewis is a good coach who coaches who is on his team get rid of johnson and u have a better team pure and simple. t.o. is another moron who can't shut up either. No wonder palmer wants out as a TRUE PROFESSIONAL no one wants to listen to the crap those two  bring and never ever ever stop jingalinging.
  There are many other wideouts out there the problem is no team will trade even a warm six pack for ocho or t.o. .  As a steeler fan it's nice to know
I'll never have to listen to a chad , terrell or another loser and trust me they are both losers who make any team situation worse. Marvin Lewis is a class act
playing a hand he was dealt by the browns and the front office of the bengals with a better draw he would be a much better coach.

They should be more than happy to let him go. His mouth out performs his production every year anyway. Let him be someone else's headache. Its a shame he can't conduct himself as a professional because he is a talented player but his attitude over shadows his skill and in the long run no one will remember him for his talented just his piss poor attitude and name changing.

How about escorting LEWIS out the door too!  This guy was a decent DC for the Ravens, but he's crap as a HC.  Come to think of it, how much of his success in BAL was because he had Ray Lewis and that monster squad on defense...?  When he came to Cincy he had an offense loaded with playmakers and a struggling defense.  I haven't notice any improvement to the defense since 2003, and their offense is actually getting worse.
Say what you want about Chad Johnson, at least he does his job on Sunday.  Lewis can't say that, and maybe with a better HC we wouldn't see nearly as much turmoil out of Cincy (and CJ) as we have been seeing.
Just a thought...

Well when you type so badly and have the grammar of a 2nd grader how else would come off?  As a child for sure.
