Chad Ochocinco on Marvin Lewis’ return: “I have nothing to say about that”

While Marvin Lewis has publicly made it sound like he’d be open to having Chad Ochocinco back on the team, Ochocinco doesn’t seem to believe it.   (Neither does Bengals.com.)

Ochocinco was asked for his feelings on Lewis’  return on Sporting News Radio’s 2 Live Stews:

“I have nothing to say about that. I’m not the owner of the team. My hands are out of that situation,” Ochocinco said via SportsRadioInterviews.com.   “The only thing I can remember, as of right now, about Coach Lewis, is Coach Lewis throwing me under the bus. When it was time to play the Chargers, knowing that I was hurt. That’s the only thing I can remember at this point.”

The Ocho said he was “really hurt” by some of Lewis’ recent comments and didn’t know if they could co-exist.

It’s unclear if Lewis truly got more personnel power when he agreed to return to the team.  Whether Ochocinco returns to the team or not should be a great indication.

    VY wants to go out for a drink with you, Ocho.

    as a Steeler fan, not sure if it matters… we’ll miss him as a nonfactor…we easily frustrated him

  3. broncsfan says: Jan 5, 2011 9:21 PM

    If there’s a 2011 lockout, it’s curtains for this guy.

  4. bravin4evr says: Jan 5, 2011 9:23 PM

    If he goes back to being Chad Johnson and a team player he might be around. His ME first game has run it’s course! Marvin has some young team oriented receivers now and don’t need him or T.O.

  5. steelerfan9598 says: Jan 5, 2011 9:31 PM

    Even as a Steeler fan, I always liked Chad JOHNSON. Chad Ochocinco has become a loud mouthed non factor.

  6. help me says: Jan 5, 2011 9:32 PM

    Mucho Stinko es no bueno.

  7. goldsteel says: Jan 5, 2011 9:34 PM

    If it were up to me, Chad would go and T.O. would stay for some veteran presence on the team. So if the younger players hit a rough spot, T.O. can step in and produce.

    Chad isn’t worth the distractions that come with him. He complains too much to Carson Palmer. Funny how Carson’s game improved when both of Divas were on the sideline.

    Its one thing to have a big mouth when you’re producing bigtime, especially if you’re being funny a lot of the time. But when you’ve haven’t been producing much for the last couple years its time to STFU.

  9. mean13 says: Jan 5, 2011 9:37 PM

    Curtains for Ocho Stinko.

  10. philtration says: Jan 5, 2011 9:37 PM

    Adios Choko Stinko.

    You overplayed your hand and now you can beg for a job with a desperate team just like T.O. has done.

  11. grogansheroes says: Jan 5, 2011 9:39 PM

    Wow, that’s gotta be a first!

  12. steelers6pack says: Jan 5, 2011 9:41 PM

    Do not knwo what I will miss more. the TOCHO Show or Ochostinko catching 1 pass for 8 yards vs Steelers!

  13. melikefootball says: Jan 5, 2011 9:44 PM

    Gee Chad’s feelings are hurt for a coach throwing him under the bus…wonder if that sounds like someone close and dear to him throwing the team every week under the bus. Pay backs are such a bitch hey Chad.

    Yeah Carson’s game sure improved against the Ravens. Throwing two interceptions, one in the end zone. And then over throwing a guy who was wide open 10 feet in front of him for what would have been the game winning TD.

    “Chad Ochocinco on Marvin Lewis’ return: “I have nothing to say about that””

    Lewis OTOH, has plenty to say about whether or not YOU return, dumbass.

  16. Deb says: Jan 5, 2011 10:49 PM

    Have never particularly like #85 but can’t help feeling a bit sorry for him now. He’s like the kid who bought a rattlesnake for a pet and didn’t figure out it was poisonous until it was too late. Why on earth he lobbied to bring that viper T.O. into his house, I’ll never know. It was a foolish, foolish decision. He went from being the focal point of the team to being “Chad Who?” Bengals are definitely better off without T.O. and probably better off without either of them. Too bad for Chad. His best days are behind him.

  17. bucks12965 says: Jan 5, 2011 10:52 PM

    For someone who just said he has nothing to say about that, he sure went on to say a whole lot.

  18. blitzburg10 says: Jan 5, 2011 10:52 PM

    The guy isnt even a full time football player anymore……he is an attention starved media whore with his stupid reality show and useless twitter ramblings….Football is a hobby for this babbling moron and that other clown who lines up on the other side of the field.

    Someone mentioned ‘VETERAN PRESENCE’,…are you kidding me? I wouldnt want these 2 cancer cells anywhere near my younger players…..The constant whining,endless self promotion,backstabbing coordinators,head coaches,and their own quarterbacks…thats not veteran presence…thats two self absorbed infants…..WHO NEVER WON ANYTHING!!

    Veteran presence is Hines Ward,James Farrior,Jerome Bettis or Teddy Bruschi,Rodney Harrison and Tom Brady….Those are veterans with a presence that resulted in championships for their TEAMS….,not reality shows and twitter accounts..

    @enders9

    Neither one of those interceptions thrown against the Ravens were directly Carson’s fault. In fact, the one he threw in the endzone hit a reciever right in the hands and deflected. And the overthrow happened because a defender hit Carson just as he released the ball. Nice try

  20. baboushka says: Jan 5, 2011 11:18 PM

    How can anyone respect a guy who even changes his name to an incorrect pronunciation in Spanish. 85 is not Ocho Cinco in Spanish. 85 is pronounced correctly as Cinco y Ocho in Spanish.

    as a diehard pats fan, i couldnt have said it any better

  22. cdfloyd says: Jan 5, 2011 11:28 PM

    geezohman:
    1. cool name you have..
    2. “dur… we got us 6 rings. hurhurhur” like every other steelers’ fan. Chad is one of the better receivers in the nfl and has been for a long time. That comment just makes you look stupid, and I’m an Eagles’ fan. Yeah, initiate your no rings and dog jokes.

  23. rezburna says: Jan 5, 2011 11:31 PM

    @Yankees5775 If you think Carson Palmer doesn’t deserve a vast majority of the blame for the way this team performed then you clearly know nothing about football. If anything, the two so called “divas” deserve the least. T.O. played great. Chad performed when the ball was thrown his way. Carson Palmer stares down his receivers, and has a habit of forcing the ball to people instead of hitting the open man. Could it be that maybe he’s intimated by the personalities of his receivers? If so, he doesn’t need to be an NFL quarterback if he can’t deal with big ego’s.

    As for everyone downing Chad saying that his best days are behind him, you’ve got to be kidding me. If he goes somewhere where a QB can deliver the ball accurately and on time, he’ll definitely be right back over the century mark. Calling him a media whore is pretty stupid as well. It’s obvious these things are preparations for his life after football. He probably wants to act. I’ve seen him on several TV shows. It always seems to me that people are so jealous hearted. Couldn’t play football good enough to make it to the league, so now anybody who’s braggadocios and outwardly confident are “bad guy’s”.

    Do you care????I don’t care….who really cares?

  25. richm2256 says: Jan 6, 2011 1:01 AM

    Chad, saying “I have nothing to say about that”means ……. saying NOTHING about that.

    You must have meant to say “I have nothing to say about that EXCEPT…”

  26. tommytd says: Jan 6, 2011 6:29 AM

    Since when does this idiot have “nothing to say.” I can’t believe it!

  27. joetoronto says: Jan 6, 2011 6:34 AM

    These diva’s have been shown where the line is in the NFL.

    Unfortunately, they can’t see it.

  28. whoplayswhere says: Jan 6, 2011 7:28 AM

    @Yankees, as a Bengals fan, I must of been watching a different game. No one hit Palmer on the last pass, nor did Shipley have a chance to catch the INT thrown in the endzone, especially in quadropal coverage. Everyone wants to give CP a pass and blame other people. He ha no excuse this year with all the weapons he had. Somehow though, excuses are being made for him. He fits the Bengals perfectly, mediocrity.

  29. rgwhodey says: Jan 6, 2011 7:34 AM

    I love that there are more Steelers fans that post on Bengals news than they do their own news… Glad to know you still pay attention to the Bengals even though their season is over…

    1 and done.. Jus sayin’

  30. brownsclown says: Jan 6, 2011 7:38 AM

    With a foot in his mouth he can’t say anything!

    And whose foot is in his mouth?

    Is that a set of Jets’ cleats in the corner!

    OMG! He’s going to be a Jet! He’s already interviewing with sexy Rexy!

    =================================

    That must be why a team that finsihed 4-12 doesn’t want him back.

    Chad used to be a top receiver, now he’s stuck in the middle of the pack because he’s more interested in being a clown than a professional athlete.

    —————————–

    I lol’d. Mostly because you are completely wrong. Carson was never hit right as he released the ball on either of his interceptions. He was hit on the second interception, but it was well after the ball was out of his hands so it had no affect on his throw. You should probably go watch the replays again.

    The first interception: This was just a bad pass. He threw the ball to the inside, which allowed the DB to make a play on the ball, which led to Ed Reed getting the interception. Not to mention it was also a little under thrown on top of it being thrown to the inside.

    The second interception: This throw was well behind Shipley. Yes Shipley was able to get a hand on it, but it is extremely hard to catch a pass that is thrown so far behind you like that. Especially when you are in the middle of the field and you know you’re about to get knocked the eff out.

    Both interceptions were 100% Carson’s fault.

    Nice try though.

  33. kevin3142 says: Jan 6, 2011 9:11 AM

    You heard it hear first…. OchoStinko will try and land in Pittsburgh. You recall the buddying up he was doing with Ben Rapistburger after the games? Getting all sorts of photo ops and hugging afterwards. Too much hanging out. I think he’s hoping Ben will push for the Steelers to pick him up.

    Wow. Just f*ckin wow.

    People are still this stupid? First off, how can someone even call themselves a sports fan and not understand this at all? I mean seriously, you must of been the fat kid that never played a single sport in your life if you don’t understand how single-digits are used quite often in sports. Step away from World of Warcraft for a minute and go watch your local high school team play a baseball game (I say baseball because it’s the quietest sport and you can hear the coaches and players interacting with each other).

    By the way, 85 in spanish is Ochenta y cinco. I don’t know where you got Cinco y ocho from.

  35. Deb says: Jan 6, 2011 12:37 PM

    @kevin3142 …

    Last summer #85 publicly pushed for Ben to be suspended despite the fact that the evidence in Georgia showed he didn’t assault that woman. Chad made a big production of pulling the race card and saying a black player would have been suspended. Never mind that Pacman Jones had three years of arrests and convictions/plea deals before receiving his first league suspension while Ben had never been arrested, disciplined, warned, failed a drug test, or anything, and the woman’s medical exam showed she wasn’t raped. And after Ben, the league ignored personal conduct issues involving Vince Young and Brandon Underwood in which they actually broke the law–while the prosecutor in Ben’s case said they didn’t even have enough for probable cause (which is the reasonable assumption that a crime occurred).

    I don’t think for one minute that Chad believed Ben raped anyone. He was just trying to get another 15 minutes of airtime at Ben’s expense. If Roethlisberger and the Steelers don’t remember him race-baiting with the life of an innocent man … well, here’s hoping they read PFT. But I’m not worried. The Steelers are not in the habit of hiring the T.O.s and “Ochocincos” of the league. Those are the kind of players they’ve always sent packing.
