I don’t think so, Ochocinco

    First of all, I like Chad Ochocinco’s (ne Johnson’s) antics.  I think it helps make the NFL fun.  He reminds everybody that though the NFL is big business, it’s just a game, where players who can back up their mouths with their play are allowed to talk a little junk.  With the Bengals coming to town, Ochocinco has promised that if he scores, he’s headed for a Lambeau Leap.  I, for one, would love to see him try a Lambeau Leap, just to see the reaction of the Lambeau faithful.

     Two years ago he jumped into the Dawg Pound in Cleveland after scoring against the Browns, and earned a beer bath for his troubles.  I have a feeling the fans around the end zone will be saving a brewski for a Lambeau Field baptism if Ochocinco makes good on his promise to make the leap. 

      That being said, I don’t know if he will get the chance.   The Bengals aren’t a very good football team, and this year the Packers are just better.  It’s a game the Packers should win going away, and  I think they will.  I talked to members of the defense on Wednesday who say they will be focusing on stopping the run.  Does that mean Ochocinco will be ignored?  No, but it doesn’t mean he’s going to have a free roll to the end zone.  However, if he does get there, I suggest the fans give him a welcome into the stands worthy of an interloper who is stealing a venerable tradition.  I’ll let the fans decide just what that is.

    I say we let him, then body pass him 3/4 the way up Lambeau & then have him try to get back onto the field before the play clock expires.:)

    I’m not even sure they can even get into the end zone!! After last week’s performance against the Bears, they have their hands full!!

    Disrespectful is still disrespectful even if you say “no disrespect intendid”. Btw, You won’t be the first Ocho, I’ve personally seen 2 Vikings physically removed from the wall by Packer fans along with the beer bath. We’ll see how it goes for ya. I almost hope you get a TD.

    See, all you who left comments are idiots!! Ocho is a GREAT player and I’d welcome him in Green Bay with open arms!! He was having fun! Oh Well. IT’S THE PACKERS FAULT FOR LETTING HIM SCORE, SO DON’T BE PISSED AT CHAD!!!

    BTW, It’s TED THOMPSON who needs to get beer dumped on him (then fired!) He’s an idiot and his draft picks suck!

    Way to go Brett!!!! 2-0 and you’re still getting to learn the timing of your receivers and are just getting warmed up!!! Best of luck to you! I’ll be at the game in MN and I want to see you stick it to TT!!! (although I feel bad the players have to suffer through it!)
