Several years ago, when he was known as Chad Johnson, Chad Ochocinco was a pest for the Steelers' defense.

Times have changed -- as have the Bengals' fortunes against their AFC North nemesis.

Ochocinco, who has averaged 62.4 receiving yards in 19 games against the Steelers, was held to one catch for 15 yards in the Steelers' 27-21 win last month in Cincinnati. Ochocinco was so frustrated that he left for a couple of plays to regain his composure.
:toofunny::toofunny:
Ochocinco, normally confident and ****y, complained that Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau slants his coverage to take him out of the game and that there's nothing he can do about it.

"I just need to be patient," he said. "My time will come."

Ochocinco's most recent 100-yard receiving performance against the Steelers came in 2003 at Heinz Field, when he had six receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown. That's 13 games ago; Ochocinco hasn't scored a touchdown against the Steelers in the past three games.

Since that 2003 game, the Steelers are 9-4 against the Bengals. And that doesn't include the Steelers' 31-17 playoff win at Cincinnati on Jan. 8, 2006, en route to winning Super Bowl XL.

Home sweet home

The Steelers begin a stretch of three consecutive home games in 12 days today. They host the New York Jets next Sunday and Carolina four days later.

This stretch is the first time since 1986 that the Steelers have played three straight home games. And it's the first time in franchise history that they have played three home games in 12 days.

Series of streaks

Last season, Cincinnati swept the Steelers for the first time since 1998.

The Steelers had won the previous five games.

I am still trying to find the Holy Grail of all Steelers "big hits" video clips-- when our defense clobbered him in (I think the first meeting in 2006). I think it was Ike Taylor and at the time Chris Hope, hit him so hard while he was in mid-air that his carcass got juggled on its way down. One of the awesome-est hits our defense has ever laid on an opposing player. There was definite hostility in the hit....

If someone can ever find a link to that video clip-- you are my hero. I have been searching for the last few years for that one. Nobody else seems to recall it though.

And after the game, he said something to the tune of "I can't believe they did that to me" during his postgame quotes.

Did anyone read his tweets about how he loves to face the Steelers, but don't like facing a Dick Lebeau defense, but doesn't fear them.:toofunny:

the hit in question might be where anthony smith hit him. he landed on his head and lost his helmet. he also lost his gold teef. polamalu was caught on film picking them up and handing his gold grill back to him... :rofl:
