If Ochocinco Becomes an Oakland Raider, Would He Shoot the Bull or Ride Longer

Some folks like Chad Ochocinco talk about what they can do and how well they can do it. Recently, Ochocinco who, according to an article by another Bleacher writer, has some slight connections with Hue Jackson. Some people think he would make a good Oakland Raider.

I could not believe my eyes when I saw this NFL player tossed off a 1,600 pound bull in less than two seconds. He talked the talk, but he couldn't walk the walk, or better, ride the back of a bucking bull in an arena. I asked myself, "Is this young man hard up for money?"

Luckily, he did not get his neck broken or his legs shattered. Nevertheless, he was daring enough to mount the bull and try to win the truck and the money. If he had succeeded, he would have had a chance to rename the bull.

This is another reason this lockout needs to end. Some of the guys are going to be doing crazy stuff to survive or get recognition. It's not a good feeling thinking that the season will be delayed and more of them will come up with antics to make it during the NFL lockout.

In a humorous way, I thought that Ochocinco might want to change his name to Ouchuno, a combination of "ouch" for the pain and "uno" for the little over one minute he was able to stay on the back of the bull.

Well, he did not get to change the name of the bull, so wouldn't it be a good default prize for him to change his name. What he says ought to match what he actually does.

After this fiasco, some of us say, let Ochocinco stay where he is. On the Oakland Raiders' team we need men who know themselves well enough so that what they say they can do or ride, and, indeed, they can do so.

Player integrity is what we need. Now, if Ocho tries another stunt and he succeeds, then, maybe, just maybe some of our opinions will change.
