Chad on Ghiaciuc

OneManCrimeWaveContributor IJune 11, 2009

A while back I wrote an entry about how Bengal players and coaches would respond to former Bengals center Eric Ghiaciuc's comments over Chad Ochocinco being a distraction. Now that Chad has returned from his off-season purgatory and learned of Ghiaciuc's comments he had this retort:

"Ghiaciuc's play was a distraction. Of all people to call me that," Ochocinco said.

Alas, Chad has vindicated what I suspected was on the minds of all the players and coaches last season. The guy who has his hands on the ball every play was widely regarded by his peers as the last guy you would ever want touching the ball every play.

Now he's Kansas City's problem. I sympathize with their fans, Matt Cassel and Larry Johnson. Coach Todd Haley might realize he made a mistake by signing the 290-pound ragdoll when Matt Cassel is buried under a pile of humanity that arrived in the backfield the same time as the ball.
