Hue Jackson on Ochocinco: “He’s my son”

Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco wants to change his name back to Johnson.   Perhaps he should consider Jackson — as in “Hue!”

“He’s my son,” said Hue Jackson to Bengals.com when asked about his former pupil.  “I like him as a young man and really admire what he’s done in Cincinnati and I want to stay in touch with him because I have great respect for him.”

Translation: Let the Ochinco/Johnson to Oakland speculation begin.

Even if Ochocinco says he wants to return to Cincinnati, those close to the Bengals don’t believe there’s any chance of that happening.  Marvin Lewis’ endless shots at Ochocinco certainly support that theory.

When the veteran receiver is a free agent for the first time in his career, it sounds like he’ll inspire some interest from Oakland.

  1. Al recently said

    “I decided that we no longer as an organization can fight the battle of personal problems for certain players,” said Davis, who cut the quarterback in May. “We tried it in the past, we had been successful with some of the greatest players who’ve ever played professional football, and we failed with some of the greatest players who’ve ever played professional football who had personal problems. ”

    So there was a time that Chad Johnsocincho may have been a Raider, but if Al is past dealing with head cases then Hue’s butt will be on the line if he wants to bring him in.

  2. Jackson will have to convince Al Davis that Johnson won’t be a distraction, the Raiders haven’t had a malcontent since Moss.

    Once he does that, and I’m sure he will, his neck will be on the line, as it should be.

    Cromartie is confused now because he thought Ocho was his son…

    well played.

  4. he needs to change his name to OchoNoShow because he is done. always complaining about not getting the ball because he can no longer get open. i think its great that everyone wants out of Cincinnati because they have no real fans there they only root for them when they are winning and then when they are losing they run for the hills.

    tampering?

    All he said was, “He’s my son,” and “…I want to stay in touch with him because I have great respect for him.” That doesn’t sound like tampering to me.

    Then Belichick would say, “Hey, Chad Jackson, didn’t I wast a 2nd round pick on you?”

    Ochinco Rosenthal? Really? It almost sounds racist.

  8. First of all, someone please tell this Chad Whateverhisnameis that the number 85 is not “ocho cinco” which means “eight/ five”. It should be ochenta y cinco”, which means “eighty five”.

    We have about 6000 gazillion dollars tied up in wide receivers at this moment. If we can cut Decoy Hayward-Bey, maybe we could pay some $ for Chad Whatever.

    But, Al will not cut our Ochenta y Cinco (Beys number ironically) as he won’t want to look foolish, at least not right away (See: JaFatone Russell history). We have Jacoby Ford who runs circles around Bey, making Bey the proverbial useless boat anchor, which guarantees he should be on the roster for 10 more years

    As the world turns…

  9. Just because Hue Jackson likes Chad does NOT mean he will be a Raider!

    If Hue Jackson likes Bill Parcells is he going to be our next GM?

    If Hue Jackson thinks Will Ferrell is funny will he be our next QB?

    You look like a bunch of retards trying to hump a door knob writing all this speculation about the Raiders. Personally i am sick of reading it.

    If you had half a brain you would know how AL Davis feels about his young WR’s (whether or not its accurate) he is not going to make another Javon Walker mistake.

    WAKE UP and write something intelligent, about us for once!
