And now for the latest cannon-shot from Marvin Lewis over Chad Ochocinco’s bow.
If things weren’t already personal, they feel that way now. We’ve been hearing some pretty sweet jabs from Lewis in recent weeks. It’s almost as if he knows Ochocinco won’t be back, and he’s finally letting out everything he’s been holding back for so long. Errrrr, wait. That would seem to be exactly the case.
Lewis, coaching the North team at the Senior Bowl this week, was asked by Ian R. Rapoport of The Boston Herald about what type of fit Ochocinco would be with the Patriots.
“Belichick’s smarter than that,” Lewis replied, laughing.
In case you’ve been distracted by whatever you consider more important and aren’t up on the storyline, Ochocinco has openly Twitter-flirted with the idea of playing for the Patriots and Raiders. Oh, and now the Jets, too (along with Terrell Owens).
Makes sense. The Jets could stand to use an upgrade in outspoken receivers in case Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes leave.
Ochocinco did get wind of Lewis’ latest shot, and of course challenged him to a cage match. Seems like a pretty logical solution.
