I like hearing this out of Chad Johnson. Put the focus clearly back on righting this sinking ship.
Would be better if it was until they won a super bowl, but its a step in the right direction.
Hopefully he'd also done lamenting TDs that aren't his as well.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
I have no clue why he would celebrate in the first part of the season anyway. I really hope we may see a new side of Chad Johnson. Last year all that espn talked about was how Chad brought fun to the game, but how T.O. was a team distraction. I think they may have changed sides. T.O. seems to be well out of the spotlight this year, but Chad just can't stay out of it, even if it means his team losing games.
-LTlabnerIf you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.
Chad must be tired of being footballs version of Stepit Fetchit.
When I see the 2015 Reds, I see a 100 loss team.
Celebrating TDs? He has 28 TDs in the last 4 yrs. He should be grateful if he scores every other game, and he is in the prime of his career.
By comparison, Randy Moss has 32 TDs in the last 4 yrs, and he is on the downside of his career. When Randy Moss was in his prime he had 43 Tds in 3 yrs. Chad has 44 Tds in 7 yrs.
That is the difference in class.
Thanks for letting us all know this breaking and very important news Chad.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
No more chicken dances or river dances this year
So now he's a sad clown.
Still a clown, though.

Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Wow. How many times to your hear a player say that he'll not make a display? Johnson saying it is even more shocking.
Celebrations are a pretty controversial topic in sports. I wish there were less of them, actually. While watching a football game the other week, a defensive lineman made a tackle for a loss on 2nd Down and went about his celebration. On the next play (3rd and long), the defense gave up the first down. I thought that if he was going to celebrate, he should have waited until they finished the job!!
This is the smartest thing that's come out of his pie hole in a long time. It's only funny if your winning and the Bungles haven't done any of that in a long time.
