C. Ochocinco has struggled this year, which has surprised E. Reed (US Presswire).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

How far has Chad Ochocinco fallen? One of his old rivals, Ravens safety Ed Reed, said he’s rooting for him and that he misses him. That's when you know things aren't going well for you.

“I’m kind of wondering where is Chad, all the noise that you usually hear,” Reed said, via the Baltimore Sun.

Reed isn’t hearing it, because Ochocinco has been irrelevant for the Patriots, catching only 11 passes and scoring exactly zero touchdowns.

Against Reed, though, Ochocinco had plenty of success. In 18 career games vs. Baltimore when he was with Bengals, Ochocinco caught 91 passes for 1,361 yards (both of which are the most he’s accumulated against any other opponent) and seven touchdowns. But these days, Ochocinco has become invisible in New England.

His absence has surprised Reed.

“You start to see some true things when guys start to get moved around in different leagues,” Reed said. “I would’ve thought that he still would’ve been a great receiver, especially over there in New England. But obviously, there’s something that’s not right. So I hope Chad gets it together because I know he’s still a great player and has still got great attributes about him.”

I definitely think you're on to something here.  Not just Chad Johnson, but look at the other former Bengal WRs who fell off the planet he left: TJ Whosyourmomma!  Got his payday and went to SEA where you can still here the sucking sounds, followed by a shortened (and crapulent) stop in Baltimore.  Given the "no-name" status of all the WRs in Oaktown, if Palmer can get these jokers to post numbers it pretty much proves he's the real playmaker, not the Chad.

I think it's pretty clear Carson Palmer carried his ass.  Palmer is now making Denarius Moore look like a Pro Bowler.  Palmer is apparently really good.
