After providing the winning point in the Bengals’ 7-6 win over New England Thursday night, Chad Ochocinco was giddier than a Gramatica.
In a lengthy locker room diatribe/monologue (almost all of which I missed I was talking to Chris Henry and Carson Palmer), Ocho promised a massive 2009.
“You haven’t f–king seen anything yet,” he promised. “Know how serious I am? I just cursed. I’m taking all the hate that I received from the media and balling it all up. Just like in the movie theater when you’re watching all the previews, this is what I’m using the preseason for.”
Ochocinco had three catches for 69 yards in limited time. He did indeed look pretty good.
As for the PAT, necessitated by a groin injury to kicker Shayne Graham, Ocho said, “I’ve been kicking since high school. It was easy, just like riding a bike. You haven’t done it in a while but it’s still the same thing. I don’t think they need to bring anybody in. I can do the kicking for the preseason.”
He also promised that, when the NFL Films cameras stop rolling for the Bengals turn on Hard Knocks, the entertainment won’t end.
“This year I’m gonna be myself,” he proclaimed. “But I’m gonna be very productive at the same time. It’s gonna be hilarious.”
