How do you do that (keep it in check)? That seems like an impossible task with these types of guy (personalities). No matter how much you do, it's never enough. They are like spoiled children who need to be placated? Why should that responsibility be put on the FO or coaching staff, regardless of who it is, to somehow find a way to keep that selfish, me-first player happy? Again - it's not about the endzone celebrations or attention getting antics some define as having fun and being entertaining; but when an obviously high-strung and emotional player, when things aren't going his way or the team is losing, is having confrontations with other players and the coaching staff in the locker room and on the sidelines.You are always going to have huge egos on a professional sports team. It's the job of management to keep it in check and to put together a team that meshes.
No one is going to convince me that those latter items aren't a problem, and can prove to be a distraction for a team. It was with T.O., Moss, and Keyshawn - but it's somehow different with Chad?
Cancer is cancer. But Chad, in the past, has bragged about these guys, as well as his cuz, and wanting to emulate them. All talented guys and solid receivers. But not team players IMO. And that is evident by the fact they kept moving from team to team due to their me-first personalities.TO and Randy Moss have both been labeled far bigger cancers than Chad Johnson, and they both play for winning football teams now.
