The Daily Shoutout

Chad Ochocinco: I'm told that Ochocinco has agreed to tone down his act. He's told this to the Patriots, a league official said. Now, this shouldn't come as a total shock (though I wouldn't be surprised if Ochocinco said publicly he wasn't going to change). Just don't see Ochocinco pulling out a fake wedding ring and asking a cheerleader to marry him on a Bill Belichick coached team. Or jumping into the stands in the Dog Pound.Or Riverdance. Or whatever.

Again, obvious, but would it shock anyone if Ochocinco at least tried to push things a little bit? The Patriots are an emotional team -- we've seen Tom Brady screaming at opposing sidelines -- but they're not a showboating team and Chad put the 'S' in showboating. So this will be interesting.

THE NMANDI ASOMUGHA BACKLASH HAS BEGUN: This could be completely sour grapes but several teams are now spreading -- well, disinformation -- about Asomugha saying his off the field desires might interfere with what happens on the field. Namely how Asomugha wants to be an actor. Sure. Whatever. If Asomugha wants to perform Little Red Riding Hood off Broadway who cares. Have these doubters seen him play? He's practically unbeatable. Maybe he can star on "Law and Order" as a crime stopping shut down corner.

THE Jets: No question they are still, as I reported months ago, seriously considering signing Randy Moss. Meaning Moss will have one more opportunity to destroy a team from within.

See you Monday.

I wonder if he'll tone down his act if he doesn't his number?  I like the move but is he still Mr Ochocinco without #85?

Freeman praises the Haynesworth and 85 moves, but forwarns that Moss will "destroy a team fromwithin". That's kinda silly. I'm a Pats fan, so I enjoy is optimistic view of how the Haynesworth and 85 deals will turn out, but I don't see why he doesn't think Moss will be a good move...oh wait, I just figured it out. It's because the Jets are coached by a clown with no orginazational control who, because of his jolly nature, sexual deviancy and obsession with fried foods, commands little to no respect from the people he coaches. See what I did there?

Off field distraction can derail on field. But you would have to know a little something about football. I'll bet that if you knew the game, both past and present you could find some examples every few years. I can, and I'm not even trying hard...or paid to write about football. But then again, I don't base my opinions on ignorance and make believe...
