Chad Says the Bengals Will Be Back in 09


During the off-season, Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson wanted the team to trade or release him, but despite going through a season in which the team is terrible and his own stats are down, he says he’s looking forward to bouncing back next year. “Yeah, we’re going to bounce back,” he said yesterday, per Mark Curnutte of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “You want me to guarantee it or just say it? We’ll bounce back.”

Chad was talking like a man who likes his team, likes his job and wants to be in Cincinnati for a long time. “I am Chad Johnson,” he said. “I wear 85 and I’m very, very good at what I do.” At that point a reporter reminded him that he’s not Chad Johnson — legally, he’s Chad Ochocinco. He replied, “Yeah, I’m that guy, too. So therefore the numbers will always be what they are. One down year means nothing.”
