Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco hasn't tweeted since September 24. Lest you think this is normal, well, it's not -- Ocho used to fire out 40-plus tweets a day, and for him to go 12 days without any noise on Twitter whatsoever is disturbing.

As it turns out, Ocho isn't being forced off Twitter, per se, he just lost a bet, which probably involves his not-so-stellar play this season.

"Ochocinco hasn't tweeted because he lost a bet," Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald tweeted on Wednesday. "Twitter ban/lost bet last three weeks. Won't tell me the wager."

We checked with "Rap Sheet" on Twitter, and Ocho won't reveal who the bet is with either.

Or guess, because you care, goes something like this: there's was a bet between either Bill Belichick or Tom Brady and Ocho relating to number of catches against the Bills.

This makes sense for a couple of reasons. The Bills and Patriots played on September 25, one day after Ocho's last tweet. And Ocho had the most number of targets (four) that he's had all season, meaning you could jump to the conclusion, if you're inclined, that someone was trying to give him a fair shake of getting his hands on some balls.

He caught two passes for 28 yards, but dropped a critical pass in the Patriots loss, and that's not good enough to win any friendly bets. Or maybe he had a "don't drop any passes" or "run all your routes perfectly" bet going with Belichick.

Whatever, he's not talking about it, which means it's someone with authority and we probably won't see Ocho on Twitter until October 14 -- Rapoport says it's "retroactive," which is hilarious -- when the three-week stint is up.

So at the very least, we can rule out Tedy Bruschi.

Gotta agree. I can't believe the tool that says that Chad was NEVER any good.  It's one thing to be a dumb ass when it comes to Football, but this guy votes. Scary.
