Have to admit: We’re kinda loving Bengals coach Marvin Lewis’ scorched Earth approach to Chad Ochocinco lately.
Lewis knows a divorce is coming, and he’s finally free to say whatever he wants about his star wide receiver. Lewis is coaching at the Senior Bowl on Monday and was asked by Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald how Ochocinco would fit with the Patriots.
“Belichick is smarter than that,” Lewis said.
The Bengals coach and nearby reporters broke into laughter at that point, but Lewis’ message about Ochocinco of late has been clear. Ochocinco has noticed, saying on Twitter that it’s “AssWhoopinTime” and that he wants a cage match set up with Lewis.
Lewis may have to get in line: Ochocinco was also kind enough to volunteer to whoop Florio’s ass at the Super Bowl before treating him to some McDonald’s.
