With the their playoff hopes still alive, the Jets face off against the Cincinnati Bengals during Sunday Night Football. And things are already lively, thanks to Bengals wide receiver Chad Ocho Cinco.
Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis and the colorful Ocho Cinco have been trashing each other via Twitter. Ocho Cinco Tweeted, "@revis24-you saw the movie Public Enemies-that's how I'm gonna break out of Revis Island-I can't stay there ain't no damn McDonalds" on Monday and yesterday Revis responded, "good morning world. i just woke up from this crazy dream. @OGOchoCinco came to Revis Island and disappeared." And today, Ocho Cinco declared, "Darrelle Revis couldn't cover me in a brown paper bag on a corner of a Manhattan street inside a phone booth," and invoked Jets super fan Fireman Ed.
According to the Daily News, Ocho Cinco also said during a conference call:
"I have one that is going to be so good. Everybody listening? You know the guy in the stands with the fireman hat (Fireman Ed) that quiets the stadium? OK, I have my own fireman hat made, but it doesn't say Jets. It's a Bengals fireman hat. When I score, I'm going to sit on top of the goal post and then I'm going to quiet the stadium like he does...
"I had this planned in the offseason. All I could think about is the guy who gets on the big guy's shoulders and he quiets the stadium and does the Jets-Jets-Jets thing. Hopefully the fans of New York will give me the same respect. When I score, I'm going to get on my lineman's shoulders and I'm going to quiet the stadium.
"I want everybody to say Ocho, O-C-H-O. You guys write about that. Get it out there and tell them to please cooperate."
Well, he has been busy with Photoshopping himself into Call of Duty.
