Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is refraining from saying anything negative about quarterback Carson Palmer, who has said he’ll retire before he’ll play in Cincinnati again. But Lewis hasn’t refrained from saying anything negative about receiver Chad Ochocinco, most recently mocking Ochocinco for considering playing soccer during the lockout.
Some people are now wondering why Lewis seems to favor Palmer over Ochocinco. And one of those people is Ochocinco himself.
After Robert Littal of Black Sports Online chastised Lewis for publicly criticizing Ochocinco, Ochocinco himself wrote on Twitter that he agreed with Littal’s stance, re-tweeting two Black Sports Online tweets.
“Marvin Lewis won’t say anything bad about Carson Palmer, stays kissing his ass, but disses Ochocinco daily,” Ochocinco re-tweeted. “Carson Palmer has given a big F-U to Marvin Lewis, but Lewis steadily says how wonderful he is.Makes Lewis a #hypocrite.”
And the latest tiff between the two may make Ochocinco a former Bengal.
