Ochocinco goes off on Mike Brown, Marvin Lewis

Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco is continuing to insist that he’ll do as he pleases during the lockout, and the scoffing from Bengals owner Mike Brown that he wants football players, not bull riders or alligator wrestlers, is only going to make Ochocinco feel more strongly.

“Mr. Brown, it’s a lockout,” Ochocinco told the 2 Live Stews. “Therefore I can do whatever I please.”

Ochocinco also said that if Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is going to side with Brown over him, then he may need to whip Lewis’s ass.

“Hopefully Marvin is doing this maybe to help me out,” Ochocinco said. “Maybe he is trying to cause friction between himself and me. Maybe he doesn’t like me for real. If he doesn’t like me, well, I don’t like him either. Maybe he’s doing this to help the situation out. Maybe he’s trying to do this to show Mike Brown I don’t think I can coincide with Chad, but dammit I can’t coincide with him either, and if he really feels that way when I see him I’m going to whoop his ass.”

Ochocinco also weighed in on a couple of teammates, saying he hasn’t talked to Carson Palmer but is confident Palmer won’t return to Cincinnati, and saying that he knew nothing at all about Terrell Owens’ torn ACL. Apparently that was one scoop the Ochocinco News Network wasn’t able to get.

  1. I think threatening physical harm to your head coach is grounds for drumming this goofball out of the league. Is there anyone who isn’t sick of his antics? Can we live without him?

  2. “i can do whatever i please”

    interesting choice of words… i guess practicing and playing football doesnt fall in that category?

    majority of players are still training hard, and going to practices when they can…you can see who really cares about football

  3. “Maybe he’s trying to do this to show Mike Brown I don’t think I can coincide with Chad, but dammit I can’t coincide with him either”

    Sounds like Chad’s been taking speech lessons from Emmet Smith…..

  4. Follow this guy on twitter, he is a self obsessed egomaniac that while extremely entertaining, is irritating. Why I continue to follow him is beyond me.

  5. Bengals owner Mike Brown that he wants football players

    Really? Sure could of fooled me with some of the business decisions he’s made over the years.

  6. zbikowski would have knocked chad into a whole different level of retardation even if they fought with sockem bockems. hell id love to see the ochocinco vs marvin lewis fight i guarantee marvin would kick his ass

  7. I would’ve loved to see Ochocinco on the Pats, and I thought that they would be stepping outside of the box to get him, but after saying he’d whip Marvin Lewis’ ass, I can almost guarantee there’s no way Belichick allows Chad on his team.

  8. I agree with Chad on the Mike Brown thing. If you won’t let me come to work, then you don’t get to tell me what I can and can’t do.

  9. The funny thing is Chad and Marvin get along just fine, he’s always poking Marvin by threating to “whip his ass”. Chad is pulling our chain, take it for what it is…….Harmless ranting of a jokester.

  10. Ocho is one of the most interesting players in the league, and his big mouth hides how hard of a worker he actually is. He takes his craft seriously, trains hard, and realizes there’s life outside the gridiron. He says stupid things, but he also is in the right in many situations. Mike Brown’s a turd for saying he shouldn’t do anything else except focus on football.

    It doesn’t matter he’s not a true #1 anymore, there are only about 10 of those guys in the league anyways. Doesn’t mean all the others have to shut the f up.

  11. This guy is too much into himself to ever be any kind of team player with any team! Same with TO.

  12. Adam S. at ESPN is smoking crack if he thinks Ochocinco is going to the Bears after this tirade. Hard to beat the “coach killer” rap when you threaten to kick your current coach’s ass.

  13. “If he doesn’t like me, well, I don’t like him either.”

    Really? What is this, the whining of a 4th grade girl finding out her playground crush doesn’t like her?

  14. i LOVE how everyone is against Chad here. The only joke in this situation is Mike Brown.

    He wants football players, not bull-riders or soccer players, or horse racers…

    well, then why he is so stubborn and insistent on keeping Chad on the team? Chad WANTED to leaves years ago. But they refuse to let him go, even to this day. Shoot, years ago the Bengals might have even gotten something for Chad in a trade. But I think everyone has seen what this team’s problem has really been, and that’s the QB. Carson is good enough to put up stats, so if you ONLY look at stats then you might think he’s not the problem. But if you watch the games… it’s obvious.

    There’s a similar situation brewing in Baltimore… we’ll have to wait and see if the Ravens overpay that guy if he fails to improve this year.

  15. If you follow this guy on twitter, he is always saying he’s going to whup someone’s ass, it’s a joke people. Still a moron though

  16. Football will be a better game without Chad Johnson and the rest of the prima donnas.

    They add nothing to the game but ridiculous distraction.

    First it should be Hue Jackson. Chad already knows he can knock that dude out.

  18. Obviously some responsibility falls on Chad, but obviously most of the blame falls on his parents who clearly didn’t give him the love and attention he needed as a child.

  19. Hmmmmmm, is there any doubt left about who punched Marvin Lewis at half time of that playoff game back in 2005?

  20. “His new name should be ‘Chad Uh-oh Spaghettios’!!!”

    True, but that may not fit on his jersey…

  21. You know what, I’m w/ Chad on this one. I hate how players are supposed to be all “goody 2 shoes” and as long as their not breaking the law, let them do what they want. Their performance speaks for itself. We’ll know if they have been workin out and preparing.

  22. Chad’s antics are old. He knows that he can’t distinguish himself through his play on the field so he does it through false bravado, rhetoric and assinine stunts. He may be a decent guy but he is not professional and his distractions are damaging to his team. Get rid of him and he can some more unwatched reality shows with Owens.

  23. Why is this bonehead using the verb “coincide” so often? Didn’t three years of college teach him about the verb “coexist”?

  24. I think it’s time for Chad Johnson to quit the NFL and join the SFL (Sideshow Football League).

  25. He may have done 3 years of college but I’ll take a flyer here and guess his transcript would indicate words like “co-exist”, “humility”, and “teammate” were not on the syllabuses of any of his courses. Just lucky he lives in a society that so richly rewards his particular gifts.

  26. HOLY CRAP CHAD WENT OFF!!!!!

    Why is it that a story like this has to have a title that does not fit the article.

  27. Chad Johnson = 4 time AFC yardage champion, perennial pro-bowler, HOF pace.

    Oct ’06 name change to ‘Ochocinco’, opening day ’07 v Ravens, wears ‘HOF?’ cream jacket.

    Since then, Chad Ochocinco = jerk

  28. @thegonz13:

    Yeah, Ochocinco kind of always reminds me of Darnell Jefferson from the movie “The Program”. Every time I see Chad do an interview and play his “scholarly” role, I hear Hallie Berry saying, “Will you stop using those words? It makes you sound ridiculous…You don’t even know how to use them right. Pretending to be smart is not the same thing as being educated, it’s just a con, it makes you sound stupid…no matter how big of a prospect you are.”

  29. I like Chad. He’s not generic and seems to have a mind of his own, which seems to bother those who enjoy printing everything he does. Strange isn’t it….

  30. When Chad is 80 and sitting in his rocking chair at least he won’t have a bunch of what-ifs… Like: What if I rode a bull?! What if I wrestled a alligator?! What if I tried out for a professional soccer team?! What if I made millions of dollars and supported my family… AND donated my time and money to multiple charities?! What if I had a bunch of HATERS who claimed that they were tired of me but keep my name in their mouth?!

    *shrug* As far as I’m concerned he’s only guilty of having a good time! lol

  31. Dalton and Green will make fans forget Palmer and Ocho even existed in the next 2-3 years

  32. “Ochocinco also said that if Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is going to side with Brown over him, then he may need to whip Lewis’s ass.”

    I lol’d pretty hard at this.

  33. Lewis and Mr Richy Rich the owner do need to mind their own business, this is a LOCKOUT. Unless these owners start forking out $$, they own no one.

  34. I pity Brown & Lewis having 2 put up w/Ocho Stinko & all his BS!!! He’s an idiot who has no sense of respect & deserves all venom his teammates, coaches & ownership can spit in his egotistical face. I would never want TO or el stinko on my team…maybe they should start their own soap opera show 2gether since they all r disappearing off TV one by one. Both guys r 2 peas in a pod…cancerous!!!

  35. Ocho, your quote of “Mr. Brown, it’s a lockout; therefore I can do whatever I please.” Ocho, bull riding and alligator wrestling is not your profession, football is your profession, as Mike Brown who pays your salary states – you knucklehead !!! It’s a good thing a below normal IQ is accepted to be able to play in the NFL !!

  36. thegonz13 -Why is this bonehead using the verb “coincide” so often? Didn’t three years of college teach him about the verb “coexist”?

    thegonz13, he meant “coincide.”

    Coincide–verb (used without object), -cid·ed, -cid·ing. 1. to occupy the same place in space, the same point or period in time, or the same relative position.

    Vs.

    Coexist – To exist together, at the same time, or in the same place. 2. To live in PEACE with another or others.

    LOL. Chad knew exactly what he wanted to say.
    He does not want to be a Bengal.
