    Why can't Chad Johnson just shut his mouth?

    On offseason trade rumors:

    "There are 31 different teams out there... I guarantee you, every coach and every player loves 85 ... Every coach and every player would love to have Chad Johnson on their team."

    I dunno... I'm just really sick of Chad running his mouth.

    Re: Why can't Chad Johnson just shut his mouth?

    I agree, he needs to shut up...now. He is just a huge distraction. If the Bengals won't comment his response to the questions should include that he doesn't know anything, and right now he is just trying to do the best he can to win games. Sadly, we have ego crazed people on our team (basically just Chad) that just don't know when to shut up. So we win a game and you can start talking. I'll take all the talking in the world if we win a Super Bowl. Until then, shut up.
    If 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.

    Re: Why can't Chad Johnson just shut his mouth?

    Chad was talking before they won the game.

    I'm sick of the story. I just plain don't care, because it's WAY down the list of what's really wrong. Chad is Chad (for lack of a better phrase). The upper management in PBS could care less as long as butts are in the seats, and the media is constantly on a hunt for another Chad story.

    When you're running up to Chad in the parking lot, you can't say you're not trying to create a story.

    Re: Why can't Chad Johnson just shut his mouth?

    Yea lets trade the best player on our team and one of the best WR in football. Not to mention the money problems in doing so. Chad has never said one thing negative about a team mate, never flips out when we win and doesnt ever get into trouble. I think we should worry about fixing out problems not making them.

    Not according to reports of what he said in the locker-room during the halftime playoff game that we ended up losing to the Steelers ... what about when he mouths off to Marvin on the sidelines and jerks away when Marvin tries to coach him? .... what about when he yells at his QB when he doesn't get the ball when and/or where he wants it?

    I think this locker-room is much closer to becoming poisoned than many people want to believe.

    He doesn't flip out when we lose because he doesn't care about winning. He cares about good old number 1, or number 85 in his case. He only flips out when he doesn't get the ball.

    By Chad himself? I doubt it.

    By a head coach who has let ALL of the inmates run the asylum for 5 years and now says he's "in charge", and by a front office who can't see over the piles of money they swim in? Yeah, you're probably right.

    Is Chad part of the problem or part of the solution?

    I don't think Chad Johnson constantly running his mouth can have NO effect whatsoever on this locker-room.

    Re: Why can't Chad Johnson just shut his mouth?

    I agree wholeheartedly that Chad is far from the biggest problem on this team... however, he IS the most visible player on this roster and I think his off-field contributions are becoming more and more negative and less the "innocuous fun" that they used to be viewed as.

    gotta link for that quote? I would think Bengals message boards would go ape over that comment, but I haven't seen anything yet.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I paused SportsCenter on my DVR and wrote it down from there...

    Didn't say it had zero effect, just not as much as the people who've sat back and allowed it, and much worse, to go on for years.

    All I know is Chad is one of the top 3 or 4 receivers in the game. Without him, TJ rarely gets open and the offense scores 17 points a game. Unless they suddenly have a defense that only gives up 16, they'll lose more games than they are now.

    What they need is a coach who can handle different egos effectively to build a solid unit, not a coach with a bigger and softer ego than the supposed locker room cancer.

    I don't disagree with anything you say here.

    Maybe what Chad needs is a Marty Schottenheimer type coach who will grab him by the face mask and tell him to grow up.

    Re: Why can't Chad Johnson just shut his mouth?

    I don't know what you would expect him to say. For the past month or so he has been blamed for the Bengals not winning. Now there are reports that the Bengals are thinking about trading him and you expect him to say nothing while the team doesn't deny it?

    This is just the latest chapter in the book of how the Cincinnati media and fans don't appreciate their superstars while they are here.
