Default Bengals' smack talk starts early

Bengals' smack talk starts early
By John Harris
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Thursday, August 2, 2007


GEORGETOWN, Ky. - Looking forward to playing the Steelers this season, Chad Johnson?

"Let (Troy) Polamalu and those boys know I'm not having it this year,'' Johnson said Wednesday following the Cincinnati Bengals morning practice at Georgetown College.

Johnson, a four-time Pro Bowl performer who led the league with 1,369 receiving yards in 2006, perked up appreciably when interviewed by a Pittsburgh reporter.

Johnson, the self-proclaimed "Ocho-Cinco'' (the spanish version of his No. 85), hasn't caught a touchdown pass against the Steelers in two seasons.

Cincinnati hosts the Steelers at 1 p.m. Oct. 28. Johnson and the Bengals visit the Steelers in a Sunday night rematch Dec. 2.

"I heard about Coach (Mike Tomlin) coming in trying to spark a fire by intimidating opponents. I'm letting them know now, it ain't happening,'' Johnson said. "Not with Ocho.

"Tell Ike (Taylor) I love him. Tell Deshea (Townsend) I love him. It's going to be a good year, man. I can't wait. I'm really looking forward to (those games).''

The Steelers and Cincinnati split their two games last season. Johnson, who was defended primarily by Taylor, had a total of five catches for 64 yards with no touchdowns.

The last time Johnson caught a touchdown pass against the Steelers was in 2004. He does not have a touchdown catch against Taylor, who became the starter at left cornerback in 2005.

"I really haven't had that much luck against the Steelers in maybe two or three years,'' Johnson said. "I'm looking to the offense to really dominate the division and allow the division wins to carry us throughout the rest of the season.''

Johnson said he plans to continue his tradition of extending challenges and contacting opposing defensive backs the week before he plays them.

"Still the same thing this year,'' he said. "Nothing's going to change. That's part of what gets me going.''

What does he have planned for the Steelers secondary?

"I don't know. I have to wait and see. I can't tell you now.''

This much Johnson does know. If Cincinnati wants to win the AFC North and advance to the playoffs as the Bengals did two years ago, they have to beat the Steelers and Baltimore and not take Cleveland for granted.

"It is (a good rivalry). Everyone's really looking forward to the Pittsburgh game and the Baltimore game,'' Johnson said. "Really, Cleveland has been downplayed when it comes to playing those two opponents. We're always sitting at 1-1 with those two. We need to come out on top this year in order to get to where we want to.''

Wow....

You know... I really wouldn't call that smack talk... he actually seems to be respectable in how he discussed it...

A little fun with Tell tomlin this... but nothing bad. He assessed the games... and noted that those are TOUGH games.

However, I LOVE this stat!!

I like his enthusiasm, but Ike, who didn't play so good last season and still held him to 64 yards in two games, the old Ike of 2005 will be back and better. You just wait ocho chinco.

P.S: CJ, Anthony Smith is gonna kill you on the field
