BengalszoneBilly Posted October 18, 2007 Report Share Posted October 18, 2007 I came across this while at jetnation.com.Chad Johnson: 'I'd Spice Up the Big Apple'Chad Pennington still is the starting quarterback. Just thought we needed to get that out of the way up front.We just completed a conference call with "Ocho Cinco" -- aka Chad Johnson, the Bengals' wide receiver. You know the upcoming game doesn't have much juice when Johnson, one of the biggest mouths in the NFL, decides to back off on the trash talking. He says he won't go back to being Chad (bulletin-board quotes, crazy touchdown celebrations, etc.) until the Bengals (1-4) are back to .500.That'll be 2008.Asked in jest if he'd like to play for the Jets, Johnson said, "That would be cool. I'd spice up the Big Apple."The quote-starved beat writers that cover the Jets would love to have him. Get it done, Mr. T!This should be a tough challenge for rookie CB Darrelle Revis. Asked about Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh, second in the league with 47 catches, Revis pulled a Yogi-ism."They're one of the best in the league," he said.From the mutual-admiration department, Eric Mangini spoke glowingly of his relationship with Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. Mangini was a lowly offensive assistant in Baltimore when Lewis was the defensive coordinator. They worked across the hall from each other.We asked Lewis if he has any good Mangini stories, and he said, "Ask him about the watch." Okay, we will.
