If you had a pool going amongst friends or co-workers on when Chad Ochocinco & Terrell Owens would let their egos get the best of them this season and head Week 1 as that exact date then congratulations. Putting the both of them egomaniacs on the same teams is one of the worst ideas for an NFL team since the Buffalo Bills acquired Terrell Owens and the Bengals didn’t trade Chad Ocho Cinco. Do you see a pattern here?
I didn’t get a chance to see the moment that has shown Football fans what to expect out of the dynamic egotistical duo that is T. Ocho until later that night during the Sportscenter highlights and incase I missed it the first time ESPN promised to show me every hour on Monday morning. But for those who haven’t seen it yet, the moment would not shock you at all. It gives us the introduction of what is in store for the story of the 2010-2011 Cincinnati Bengals.
Final play of the 1st half and both “star” wide receivers are no where to be found. Why is that? Because they both went into the locker room, one went to get an I.V. (OchoCinco) & the other still hasn’t said why he went off the field so early in the game (Owens).
[adinserter block=”2″]I have never been fans of either one of these wide receivers. I feel like they are what’s wrong with athletes in sports today. Their ego are so inflated that it overshadows the team’s progress in the season. They are what actually hold back from their team from being good or even great. The literally play Russian roulette with their teammates in favor of their egos. When they are on they are good, when they don’t want to play they drag the team down with them.
Personally I LOVED when Terrell Owens wasn’t being touched by a single football team to play with them this season. The guy is a locker room cancer that feels it’s more important for him to be a D-list celebrity and a reality television start then playing the game of football. This guy has been kicked out of more locker rooms then the team’s most hated reporter. What does that tell you?
Then you have Chad Johnson a.k.a Chad OchoCinco. How this guy is even in headlines boggles my mind. He is not an amazing wide receiver in the NFL. He doesn’t come up big for his team and is more interested in his latest tweets then he is about how many yards he makes after a catch. Putting these two on the same team was a recipe for disaster.
[adinserter block=”1″]The sad thing in this all is the Bengals are a good team. They could even be the AFC representative in the Super Bowl this season if they got their act together and when I mean “they” I mean T.O. & OchoCinco. It doesn’t bold well that in Week 1 not only do we have our first issue of the season from the self proclaimed “Batman & Robin” but the Bengals also lose in Week 1.
Too many off field distractions, post game interviews, tweets and so one will drive this team to reaching nothing this year. The fact that versus gave these two an actual TV show is amazing to me. They bring nothing that is entertaining to the table…just ask VH1.
Good luck this season Bengals, hopefully this “dynamic duo of destruction” doesn’t cost you Marvin Lewis’ job and Carson Palmer’s confidence.
