    Re: Chad Johnson gets an early start to trash talking

    Personally, I don't enjoy the trash talking. I figure if you beat the other guy, respect your competitor enough to not rub it in. If you can't beat the other guy, you simply look like a jerk who runs his mouth better than he plays the game.

    Play the GAME and play it hard. Leave the talking to the reporters and commentators.

    Chad Johnson is awesome. Every team knows his trash talking isn't mean-spirited, and is all in good fun.

    No doubt. I probably shouldn't link those two together like that. No one is as bad as Owens.

    Except maybe the Browns and a few other teams. Whenever they play the Browns, it always seems like the DBs are waiting to tee up on him. They almost seem to forget about the rest of the team just to take shots at Chad.

    Chad is definitely trying to make the game more fun. I liken his trash talking to the good natured trash talking that friends give each other when they play against each other. His stunts are more like practical jokes than any kind of mean-spirited jabs. I think Hines Ward and TO can be much more mean-spirited with their talk. In fact, I think TJ has a bit of a mean streak in him. I remember that game a few years back when they beat Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh and the NFL network showed it as the "Game of the Week" with NFL Films footage of TJ shining his shoes with a terrible towel. TJ did not seem like he was joking around when he did it. I think he genuinely doesn't like the Steelers.

    Amen!

    If we need the likes of Chad Johnson, and his antics, to spice up and make the games more interesting and fun to watch then the NFL ha a bigger problem.

    I'm "old school" when it comes to receivers and scoring. Guys like Paul Warfield, Jerry Rice, Lance Alworth, Lynn Swann, Ozzie Newsome, Chris Collinsworth.

    Class, grace, and dignity.

    I don't need some idiot pulling his cellphone out in the endzone and calling his Mom. Just stupid.

    If I was the opposng team I'd be out to wring his clock on that playing field as soon as possible.

Especially when a team is losing or in a close game there is no celebratoin needed when you make a play. If you score that is one thing, if you mearly make a good football play that is another.
    First of all i love Chad's antics. But the thing is if anybody should be celebrating over a big play, is the defense because defense wins superbowls.

    For those comedy fans out there, Daniel Tosh says it best.

    Something to the effect of: People sit on their couches and yell at the TV 'you just need to shut up and do your job, stop celebrating'.... Their job is to catch A BALL. It's really not that serious.

    I guess there are just too many old school guys who really dislike the celebrations, but I don't see the harm in it. It's entertaining, and if you remember, someone has to score or make an accomplishment in order to do said celebration. As long as it doesn't slow the game down or offend/hurt anyone, who cares? Or who SHOULD care? No one IMO.

    Just my 2 cents.

    GAC's just jealous cause there aren't any Browns who can get into the end zone on a regular basis. :

    Chad understands that whether it is his athletic feats or his trash talking, he is an entertainer.

    Re: For the Chad Johnson Haters

    Interesting short thread. Thing is, I don't remember anyone posturing Chad to be a "me-first" player or a non-team guy in the other thread. I know I didn't. I think we all know Chad wants to win. So does Marvin Harrison. They just have different ways of showing it.

    Chad is the most entertaining player in the league, IMO. Isn't that what matters?
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    He could use some better material, that future HOF jacket didnt do a whole lot for me. I like him I think he is funny and does care about winning.

    Re: For the Chad Johnson Haters

    Chad is a breath of fresh air on a team that could use one. I applaud his PR efforts. One play he's holding his hammy and limping, the next he's going deep for 40 yards. A true gamesman. We're lucky to be seeing it every week.
