He wouldn't last one day in the Steelers locker room. The first time he opened his toofless yap to bitch, moan and shed his crocodile tears, Big Snack would tear his arm off and beat him to death with it.

Trade Ben for Roethlisberger for Chad Johnson AKA Ocho Stinko AKA Big Mouth AKA Cancer AKA Jackass.

Trade James Harrison for Odell Thurman.

Trade Santonio Holmes and Troy Polamalu for Chris Henry.

Get it done Rooney. Don't be "cheap".

No thanks. Great talent but a cancer and a loser in the clubhouse. Don't believe me, his team has a half time lead in a playoff game and he puts his position coach in a head lock during the intermission because he's not seeing enough balls. Predictably his team goes on to lose the game in the end. :binky:

You people are crazy, Chad Johnson would be a perfect fit for the Steelers just like Randy Moss is a perfect fit for the Patriots. If the Rooneys cared about winning another championship and not just being a competitive team they would make the move. Ben would be happy and might even pull a sidney crosby and take less money. The steelers would then be up there with the Pats as a superbowl contender every year and not just a wild card team.

Yeah, I'll keep that in mind the next time I'm playing Madden in Franchise Mode. :coffee: However, in the real-life NFL, what this team needs above all else to become a serious contender again are linemen on both sides of the ball - good linemen.

That "perfect fit" for the Pats* is more than likely going to go bye-bye in FA - just an fyi.

So - let me get this straight. Signing Barfo Stinko is all that it would take to be "right up there with the Pats* as a superbowl contender every year?" :rofl::rofl: Whatever you're smokin must be tainted with sawdust or somethin'.

Nah...not in Black and Gold...I can see him seriously going to Indy though, especially if Dungy leaves and a spitfire coach steps in. Indy is usually fairly classy and quiet(or pretentious and smug if you hate them), but Chad Johnson would be a good balance, skill wise, for Reggie Wayne. The Colts aren't usually crazy active in trades or free agency either, but never know.

02-04-2008, 02:38 PM
Talent-wise, sure I'd love to have a guy who can make plays like that (and no, Hines, that doesn't mean that no one loves you; I only mean in ADDITION to you).

But Chad's shameless, juvenile self-promotion and self-absorption is annoying in the extreme, and it's against the Steeler Way in every respect. Chad is not, nor will he ever be, a team-first guy. For that reason alone, he would never fit in with the Steelers and there's no way the Rooneys would have the slightest interest. Add to that the lunatic amount of money some desperate team is going to pay him, and it's a no brainer. He'll never be a Steeler, and that's just fine with me!

I get your point, and this is a little off-topic, but...I don't think Randy Moss has changed as much as you think. He's about to be a free-agent, and he's already on record saying last night that he didn't get the ball enough. Winning makes everybody happy, but it's in losing that you find out what a player is really made of. So we'll see about Randy, but I'll be surprised if he's a Patriot next season.

If Chad Johnson, or some other diva wide receiver, came to the Steelers and they had a season where the team struggled, all that ugly stuff would rear its head. Not worth it, IMO.

He is hands down my favorite receiver and the funniest guy i know, but i would be afraid he would not get the number of passes he did with the Bengals and here we go with another Randy Moss from the Raiders so this question is a toss up to me, but it would be worth the shot!

Where is all this locker room cancer and selfish player stuff coming from? Yeah, he does crazy TD celebrations but I can't think of one that wasn't just for fun and never made fun of or taunted the other team. This guy is not Randy Moss or TO. I'd love to have him on the team! I think it has about a 1 in 1,000,000 chance of happening but I would cheer like crazy if we got him!!!!

Yeah...I actually agree whole heartedly. If it was logistically possible, it would be the answer to Ben's "tall reciever" request in one of the most skilled wide outs in the game, and it would at the same time seriously cripple a divisional rival! How could you not find that 2 in 1 appealing???

I don't care how much you dislike the Bengals, Chad Johnson is a rediculously talented reciever that would make Hines, Santonio, Miller and Parker even that much better! With that kind of skill on offense, who do you cover? Seriously?

On a side note...if Arians or some other fat, mentally lazy coach sucked at play calling, I would welcome a good headlock or punch in the chunk ripples from Chad! If you don't utilize the weapons you have, you deserve to get beat down...fatty.

"Alledged", yes, but why would Lewis threaten the leaker?


So Lewis has chosen to enable, going as far as making excuses when Johnson's selfish behavior extended to an alleged locker-room shoving match with coaches (including a swing at Lewis) at halftime of the Bengals' Jan. 8, 2006 playoff loss to the Steelers.

Coming off an 11-5 regular season and having been crowned the toast of Cincinnati, Lewis responded to that Johnson meltdown by vowing to cut the player who leaked the fight information to the media.

Do you believe the Bengals when they deny the incident? I don't.

Johnson felt as if his team wasn't using him enough. He went off on the coaches. There were reports he choked position coach Hue Jackson and threw a punch at Lewis, accusations denied by all.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2344347
More:

According to reports, Johnson, angry at not getting the ball enough, voiced his complaint at halftime of Cincinnati's 31-17 wild-card loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The reports suggested that, after a heated exchange with an assistant coach, during which he had to be restrained, Johnson swung at Lewis.

Listen to sports radio or ESPN...this is not "fabricated" material, there is OBVIOUSLY a problem with Chad. When asked who has his back ...he said "Carson & TJ..no one else" ....that is from his own mouth.

So now, you can believe that 50 guys on a team are the problem...or you can believe tht Chad is the problem...your choice. But I think the answer is obvious and I dont want him anywhere NEAR my Steelers.

Ok, I've been avoiding this thread...but here it goes.

Do I hate his on the field antics, yes, would he Ben and Ward and Santonio get along? That's the question? Would he pull a Moss and take a back seat to the "team" and play like a good boy or would he pee in the pool. Just because of that potential, I say keep him off the team. I just don't need the team upset by some loud mouth loser.
However, if he were to come, his contract would be so loaded down with "off the field issue clauses" that the slightest peep from him would get his arse tossed out of the NFL faster than that dude who took a late hit on Jim McMahon back in the 80s...I'm talking black list the SOB if he acts up. Ask Bam Morris if the Rooney's have any power when it comes to Black Listing a player.

If a "weapon" that an OC has is too busy showboating, pimping himself and acting like a total jackass instead of doing the job he is paid millions to do, HE is the one who deserves to get beat down by the OC, HC and his teammates before he's thrown out the locker room door on his noggin.

Translation: Keep the garbage out of the Steelers locker room, which is exactly what the Rooney's are best at.

Not happening either, for two reasons:

1. Too much money.
2. He wants to be the featured back - he won't be with the Steelers.

However, I definitely wouldn't mind having Turner as a change-of-pace back. I wouldn't want the clown known as CJ anywhere near the Steelers, even on the cheap. So it's definitely not a case of not wanting Turner at all.

Nevermind the fact the punk has a big mouth, has a huge ego, chokes in big games and punches people on the coaching staff.

What exactly did he do last season? Besides bitch and moan, he wasn't even the best WR on that pathetic excuse for a team. He bobbled more balls than Jenna Jameson if I recall correctly. Hell, I would rather see the money spent on new towels and water bottles for Steelers TC.

F-Chad Johnson. Let somebody else pay for his overrated, underachieving big mouth. I can only imagine the first time Roethlisberger doesn't hit him square in the numbers or doesn't hit him 'enough'. Maybe it will take an unhappy Roethlisberger or an insult from CJ to BR. Figures.

Even if that is the case, is that an excuse to strike another individual?

Maybe I'm getting old, but I've always been taught that you should respect the coaching staff no matter what......win or lose. That doesn't mean you have to like them, but to physically attack them or call them out in the media every other month is low class and lacks maturity in my book.

I guess if you have an excuse (coaching staff = losses/coaching staff = doesn't make me happy)), physically or verbally attacking a coach is all good? If that is the case, God help us.

Listen...some of you may think that buying water bottles and towels will make your team look better...and it would...but it wouldn't make your team PERFORM any better.

No matter how much you want to follow each other by the coat tales, and regardless of how little common sence, imagination, or back bone you may have, you simply can't ignore talent like his. Like I mentioned before, a player of his caliber would spread defenses, open holes, and weaken an offensive jugernaught in our own division. How can that possibly be bad?

Bottom Line: If you want a team that looks better, buy new water bottles. If you want a team that plays better, get the best available talent at the best available price.

This is another Drew Rosenhaus smoke screen.

The Bengals signed Johnson to a six-year contract extension in April 2006. They tore up a deal that had four years remaining. Johnson is under contract with the Bengals through 2011. The total deal is worth $35.5 million, $16 million of which was paid in the past two years.

Johnson's contract calls for a $3 million base salary in 2008, and he would count $6.3 million against the Bengals salary cap next season. That cap number would go up to $8.8 million if he were traded or released.

http://frontier.cincinnati.com/blogs/bengals/2008/02/espncom-chad-might-sit-if-no-trade.asp


Chad has made big money over the last two years. He has bled the bengals for instant cash and now he wants to leave. Rosenhaus will try to renegotiate his contract so that he can get friendly numbers that facilitate a trade and the bengals can get some compensation (2nd round pick??) . If the contract is not renegotiated the only scenario is holdout / sitout year.

Does this smell like the Owens saga of a few years ago? Cowboys anyone????

Listen...some of you may think that buying water bottles and towels will make your team look better...and it would...but it wouldn't make your team PERFORM any better.

No matter how much you want to follow each other by the coat tales, and regardless of how little common sence, imagination, or back bone you may have, you simply can't ignore talent like his. Like I mentioned before, a player of his caliber would spread defenses, open holes, and weaken an offensive jugernaught in our own division. How can that possibly be bad?

Bottom Line: If you want a team that looks better, buy new water bottles. If you want a team that plays better, get the best available talent at the best available price.

This sounds awful familiar. The insulting and condescending tone and the accusations of "group think".

Yes, it is easy to ignore "talent like his", In the same way you ignore talent like TO's, or Barry Bonds, or Maurice Clarett, or any other club house poison. Chad is a fool, and he has no place on a true "team". It actually takes common sense, backbone and imagination to think beyond today's "win at any cost" mentality, which has worked so well for the Yankees as of late.

Yeah, even if it means the strong possibility of that particular player destroying your locker room. Win at all costs right? We have all seen how well that mentality has worked for Cincinnati.

Mark me down as having little "common sence" and lacking imagination and a back bone for not wanting that jackass on our roster. But hey, you can always call up the Rooney's and see how they feel about signing Chad Johnson, but something tells me they will also be lacking "common sence".

The Steelers used to have an underachieving, Soft WR despite height. His name was Plaxico Burress.

Chad quits on plays, he plays soft, spends too much time blabbing on and on about how great he is, and has as much heart as a computer screen: none.

Yeah, it only took T.O. a few teams before he changed. Maybe we can be CJ's Philadelphia Eagles? .

For me, it's not just his attitude that I'm using as an "excuse" to not sign the bum...

#1 - I see no problem with Ward and Holmes.

#2 - What exactly did CJ do last season that was so special?

#3 - What's it going to cost? We are going to make our QB the highest paid Steeler in history. That's not counting anybody else we plan on signing.

#4 - Don't we have biggers worries this year than trying to bring in a cancer WR?

#5 - There will be other options out there at WR when it comes to eventually replacing Hines Ward. I think I'll wait to see what those options will be rather than taking the chance on Chad Johnson becoming a born again.

If the Rooney's go out and sign Chad Johnson, I will be more than happy to eat my crow.

Yep, I'm saying right now that a leopard can't change its spots. T.O. was happy in Philly at one time as well - the year they got to the SB, and everything rapidly went downhill the year after that, didn't it? It's a matter of when, not if, the other shoe drops in Dallas. Moss has already said in so many words he's going to the highest bidder this offseason in FA, so it's not like he wouldn't be willing to say bye-bye to NE - he's not going to continue to play for the minimum wage.

Wide receiver Randy Moss, another free agent, also reiterated his desire to stay.

“If I am in a New England Patriot uniform next year, I would love to be in one,” Moss said. “If I am not, you know, the show must go on.”

Oh yeah, Moss is really dedicated to the Pats* cause. :yawn:

Well, I guess we will agree to disagree.

I don't find the reason to be stupid. It hasn't stopped the Rooney's from avoiding and even cutting players in the past. Call me crazy, but maybe they are not keen on bringing in a player who punched a coach? He did that while playing on a playoff contending team. Imagine what the guy would do if he lands on a team that doesn't make the playoffs or if he feels he is not getting the ball enough? It's a risk that I'm not willing to take.

I can see it now....

So a former Bengal confirming the report is not enough?

"Absolutely, because Marvin Lewis has his own problems," Esiason said during an appearance on the WDVE-FM Morning Show. "They had a huge fight in that locker room at halftime. It's the truth, flat out. (Wide receiver) Chad Johnson got into it with their wide receivers coach, Hue Jackson. (Wide receiver) T. J. Houshmandzadeh and Marvin came over to break it up and Chad was uncontrollable.

"He wanted the ball more, screaming and yelling," Esiason said. "Guys are trying to tell him calm down; we're all in this together; your quarterback's hurt. I mean, show a little professionalism, for crying out loud.

"He's a knucklehead. He's a wide receiver in the NFL. Not everybody can be Hines Ward. If I could have 100 Hines Wards on my team, we would never lose a game. The bottom line is that (Ward) is the quintessential, unselfish, tremendous football player that every wide receiver should be like. He never complains. He blocks downfield. He understands his role in the offense and he just loves winning."

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/s_412642.html

The media's fault, why not?

Hypothetically, even if he didn't hit his coach, something did occur at HT during a playoff game in which they were leading at the time. He doesn't really sound like a team player. Throw a fit while a playoff game is on the line and while your team is winning because your not getting the ball enough, classy.

Steelers material? I don't think so.

Like I always say..."If your coach sucks, put him in a headlock!" Words to live by ladies...words to live by...

Anyways, you all are ignoring one major flaw in your 'C.J. doesn't score on us' theory. The reason he doesn't score on us is because Ike lines up with him no matter where he goes. In case you've missed it, or were otherwise lacking mentally in some manner, Ike is a pretty darned good corner. He just can't catch an interception to save his life.

SOOO....if your #1 reciever is being blanketed by the opposing team's #1 corner, who do you throw to? Your pro bowl #2 reciever...Housh! And if I'm not mistaken, Housh scores on us EVERY DARN TIME we play them! The point is, having a C.J, Moss, or T.O. automatically takes away the opponent's best corner. Gone. Nonexistent. So, all I'm saying people in T.V. land....is if we have Chad, then how much better would Ward, Holmes, Miller and Parker be?

I know somewhere in your vast chasm of football knowledge this makes sense to you. And it's o.k. to change your mind with this. You can't always be right you know...

So (MY understanding of what you're saying) the Steelers should "sacrifice" the offense of Ward, Holmes, Miller & Parker to make sure CJ is "happy" & getting the ball enough? Pittsburgh (IMO) doesn't run an offense in which they really need another playmaker, they just "need" (and maybe need is too strong a word) to expand the offense to take advantage of the ones they have.

Yeah, you keep ignoring that part of the post. W/e works for you. :thumbsup:

So in order to consider a player a cancer with a bad attitude these days, he has to punch a coach? What a sad day for sports, thankfully the Rooney's are not dumb enough to take a gamble on CJ and his baggage.

But, but, but... Chad Johnson will automatically be a changed man if he puts on a Steelers jersey. Like T.O. in Philadelphia.....errr.....I mean in Dallas.

Your inital complaint was that if fans do not want Chad Johnson on this team simply because of his attitude, that's a "stupid" reason and a "bad excuse".

Yet, you go on to state that the Redskins can have him, he's an "asshole".

So it's fine if you don't want him on this team because he's an "asshole", but if anybody else states they do not want him for that reason it's "stupid" and a "bad excuse".

Look, stop all the madness. CJ will never wear the B&G. Never ever ever ever ever...it will never happen. The Rooney's would never sign him . So all you self-professed football geniuses can stop. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

And here's what happens to teams (like the Bengals) that sign garbage like him...they lose. They lose year after year after year. If they have a couple good years out of 20, they are happy. They never win the big game. They sell their souls and still end up losers. It's a losing proposition. Arguing on a message board won't change the facts.

It's just odd that you stated that the skins could have him and directly next to that statement (in the same sentence), you stated "he's an asshole". Just a little odd.

Anyways, like a few already stated, it doesn't really matter simply because the Rooney's are not dumb to roll the dice on an "asshole" who had a mental breakdown during a playoff game in which they were winning simply because he wasn't getting the ball enough. Thank God.

The Bengals - Steelers rivalry is kept alive almost 100% by the Pittsburgh corners and the Cincinnati receivers. There wasn't really much team rivalry there because Cincinnati was so bad and there was no competition. When you watch Pitt play Cin you really see after every pass play there is pushing between the two.

Him + the corners = dead people.
