And with Ochocinco already ticked off at coach Marvin Lewis, Ochocinco has decided to take things up a notch.
Said Ochocinco on Twitter (via Brad Well of StampedeBlue.com), “Lewis: who’s 60-67-1 all-time, 0-2 in playoffs, and only 2 seasons with +.500 record, can’t criticize my thumbs for tweeting. They win 4 me.”
It’s not smart for Ochocinco to antagonize Lewis. The Bengals can choose to keep him around deep into the offseason, cutting him on the eve of the regular-season opener and as a practical matter making it difficult for him to make an impact with a new team in 2011.
And if Ochocinco gets frustrated while being frozen in place by the Bengals, he could say or do something that would justify a suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.
At least it’ll be entertaining.
