Default Bengals' Johnson says Browns were out to get him

Chad Johnson says the Cleveland Browns were out to get him from the very first snap.
The Pro Bowl receiver had his helmet knocked off by Brian Russell on the Cincinnati Bengals' last pass play during their 34-17 victory Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Johnson was groggy and needed about a half-dozen stitches to close a gash in his chin after the hit.


ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported there will be no fine stemming from Russell's hit on Johnson as it was determined that Russell did not lead with his helmet.

The chatty Johnson said Russell had warned him that the Browns were out to get him.

"He told me last year, and he told me before the game [Sunday] that him and Andra Davis, they had one job to do," Johnson said. "It wasn't about trying to stop me, but they had to hit me. At every TV timeout, I would be in their huddle talking trash: 'Nobody's hit me yet, what's going on?'

"Finally, I think, in the last three minutes he finally got that hit. He let me know ahead of time."

Johnson said he has no hard feelings over the hit, which he described as a clean shot.

"I mean, it's the first time I've been hit in six years of playing the game," Johnson said. "It's about time someone's gotten a lick."

Johnson has aggravated opponents over the years by guaranteeing wins, wearing a Terrible Towel as a bib, sending Pepto-Bismol to Browns defensive backs and denigrating cornerbacks with his who-covered-me list. He said he's not surprised someone went after him.

"I've always been a target because of what I'm doing right now, talking trash," he said. "The hard part is trying to hit the target. I've always been able to avoid everything coming my way. I left myself vulnerable by jumping in the air at that present time, which is the only reason he was able to get that clean shot."

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Of course they're out to hit him. Everyone in the league wants to hit him. He's not whining about it. He says he knows why they want to do it. He doesn't blame them for it. There were no flags. There were no fines. No big deal.

Out to hit him?!? Man if I could still suit up at free safety I'd love to meet him at the 50 yard line......just as he's cutting across the middle with his arms outstretched to make a catch. WHAM!

Show me where he has cried about it so far. He has done nothing of the sort. In fact, he has pretty much given credit and respect to the Browns for doing it.

At this point, just let him talk. The big mouth craves attention and is not capable of shutting his mouth. Let him run with his typical shtick.

Personally, I liked him better during his interview after the Browns game.

It was funny earlier on in the game when two of the Browns tried to get a big hit on him but Chad ducked just in time and they ended up colliding into each other. I guess the Browns got the last laugh on that one.
