Marvin Lewis on OchoCinco: “What Has He Ever Done That He’s Completed?”


I find it interesting that Marvin Lewis only has positive things to say about Carson Palmer, who has basically said he would rather Fade to Turkey than ever play for Lewis again, but he continually takes shots at Chad OchoCinco.

There isn’t any reason why he should be taking shots— Chad in general has said nothing bad about Lewis or the organization for months.

Ocho, while the lockout is going on, is doing what he can to keep himself in the spotlight including a soccer tryout for an MLS team in Kansas City. Check out what Lewis had to say about that:

Here’s Lewis on Ocho’s dalliance with Major League Soccer: “What has he ever done that he’s completed? What circle has he connected in any way?” Lewis asked.

Sort of like his quarterback not connecting the circle of fulfilling his contract?

If the Bengals and Lewis feel Ocho is this unreliable and a distraction then why is he still on the team?  Why hasn’t he been traded or cut?  Other players on the Bengals are seeing this and wondering when Lewis will turn on them while still kissing Palmer’s ass.

It is in bad taste and only a coach destined for failure would say these sort of things to the media.  Lewis is just showing his true colors and he is as immature, if not more than Chad.


  1. Chad stayed in Cincinnati, Marvin! Seems like he finished something to me. He didn't quit on the Bengals, the Bengals quit on him. Go for it, Chad. I happen to love soccer:)

  2. @Gail — I live in Cincinnati and bleed orange and black; get your facts straight. Chad has tried to leave numerous times, but the organization has kept him around. Every year Chad campaigns to get out of dodge (and for what it's worth I do not blame him).

    My point is, Chad stays in Cincinnati against his will, and if the Bengals had quit on him they would have traded him by now.

    • @FinalShot,

      I was a lifelong Bengals fan, but not anymore! I can't even imagine what it would be like playing for an organization like the Bengals.

      What an embarrassemnt to the NFL! I believe if they wanted Chad gone, he'd be gone. It's my opinion that they gave up on him. Chad would probably flourish on another team…Maybe they should trade him, since they're all about the money, anyway!

      • im like finalshot i bleed black and orange but if u diss a team just bc of a bad season that means ur just a bad fan ur supposed to stay wit ur team through thick and thin

        • @Wtuthill,

          I was a lifelong Bengals fan..I loved the Bengals just like you, but I just can't do it anymore. It's not because of one bad season, it's from years of mediocrity. It just hit me one day, and I just I decided I'm done!
