While Bengals fans might be happy offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski is gone, receiver Chad Ochocinco doesn’t like the move.
“I don’t understand what the firing was for, I don’t understand what the firing was about,” Ochocinco told PFT in an interview that will be shown on Wednesday’s PFT (Almost) Live.
(He also promised to whoop Florio’s ass when he sees him. Mine too, although he passed on the chance Tuesday.)
The Ocho disputed reports that discipline was a problem for the offense and noted the great years they had with Bratkowski. He wondered aloud to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald whether firing Bratkowski was just a move to make Carson Palmer happy.
I asked Ochocinco how Palmer’s situation compares to when the receiver tried to get traded a few years ago.
“The difference is I would be scrutinized,” he said. “In Carson’s case, they would do everything they can to fix the situation.”
Finally, Ochocinco said that he wasn’t criticizing Bengals owner Mike Brown a few days ago when he talked about certain workers that cared more about their business than ownership.
“I was referring to the porn industry,” Ochocinco said.
