Then there is ocho stinko

MORE MEDIA CALLING OUT OCHO CINCO

The media is making the connection between the Monday night tirade from coach Marvin Lewis and the narcissistic behavior of receiver Chad Johnson, whose persona has been enabled by reporters who find his shtick more entertaining than troubling.

Say Paul Daugherty of the Cincinnati Enquirer, who once wrote a book with Johnson, called him out in an online blog.

Writes Daugherty:

"It's silly to lay the Monday disaster at the feet of one of the best players on the team. Chad Johnson was hardly the reason the Bengals lost by 3 TDs at home. But it is disappointing, after all these years, to see that Chad has not grown up. What was with the head-holding after he nearly scored? He helped the team with a great effort on that play. Shouldnt [sic] that be enough? Not for 85. He didnt [sic] score on national TV.

"Come on.

"Then the end of the 1st half. He and [Carson Palmer] get crossed up on a crucial interception. Chad gives it to Carson coming off the field, on the bench and heading off the field at halftime. Had to be at least 5 minutes. ESPN caught it all. Cameraman follows the pair off the field. A. Whitworth tries to block the cameraman's view. Chad keeps jawing.

"What's the word here? Unprofessional? Immature? Selfish? Embarrassing? Yes, four times."

Daugherty also addressed the blow up with Palmer in an item in the fish wrap version of the Enquirer:

"Maybe Johnson ran a sloppy route. Maybe Palmer threw a bad pass. Maybe both. Doesn't matter. What matters is Johnson acting like a 12-year-old on national television. Further, acting like a 12-year-old on national television to the best teammate he'll ever have."

Also, one of my new colleagues at SportingNews.com, Mike DeCourcy, summed it up thusly: "Johnson placing his own stardom above the team's success has defined the Bengals during Lewis' tenure, much more so than the string of arrests that made them a national punchline. Lewis has had several opportunities to contain that affliction: upon his introduction as head coach; following Johnson's reported halftime altercation with his receivers coach during the franchise's one recent playoff game; or during last season's collapse out of playoff contention. Monday night, Lewis whiffed again."

Amen.

But good luck getting the many fans of Stinko to see the light. As DeCourcy writes: "Around Cincinnati, they so love Chad Johnson. They wear his No. 85 jersey as though it is the Shroud of Turin. They believe he is an incredibly gifted wide receiver. (They're right). They believe he is extremely funny. (They're wrong). They look forward to his ridiculous performance art pieces following most every touchdown. They chortle at his public challenges to opposing defenders."

And they defend him in defiance of reason or common sense on the rare occasion that someone in the media speaks ill of him. We know this to be true, because we've been getting the e-mails. All day.

Folks, here's what it comes down to. Either you want to win football games, or you want to be entertained. If it's the latter, go to a movie on Sunday afternoons. If it's the former, then realize that any player who places greater emphasis on his plans for self-glorification than he does on whether his team scores more points than the other team is going to keep the goal from being reached.

I've been telling people here in Cinci this for 3 years. They look at me like I have 2 heads.

I've been telling people The Bengals suck for 3 years. They look at me like I have a tail.

God, it's good it be right all the time.

Everyday.

But I can't take my son and grandbabies with me so I guess I'm stuck in Suckville.

Alright, so all you who said that you'd take punk Chad on your team, please stand up and be accounted for.

Chad may well be immature - but if you put him in an environment where he surrounded by mature vets he would be worth the gamble for alot of teams.

Some of those catches he makes are amazing - but he ruins it all when his showboating becomes bigger than the result.
