Hell, if we're going to do this, we might as well make a deal with Ocho Cinco. At least he has some charisma and doesn't get into legal trouble. I personally like Johnson. He has a good sense of humor. Couse, I'm sure I'm the minority on this one too.
Missile having a different opinion from the norm?.... that's never happened.

I like Chad Johnson as well. He has a great sense of humor & beyond the flare...he's really a class act. In the dome two years ago (when he torched Fred Thomas), there was a kid in a wheelchair watching the game. He was a Saints fan. Before the game, Chad chatted with the guy. After his 1st TD, Johnson walked up to the kid, gave him the game ball & signed it for him. At the end of the game, I watch "Ocho Cinqo" come back to the kid & talk to him for a good 5-10 minutes while taking a knee. Now...this to me says the guy may be flamboyant, but he's also a great person. As for Pac-Man....HELL NO!!!!!! Putting Pac-Man working in New Orleans is like putting a drug addict working in a pharmacy. Something bad is gonna' happen.

Ditto.
I like Johnson for his love of the game. Misunderstood at times.
Love the story from above.
Especially because it comes from gandhi instead of a media outlet.
Especially given that it was a road game for Johnson!

I doubt you will ever hear of Adam Jones going out of his way to do something like this in his home town.

Re: Anyone for Pacman?

I've always liked Johnson ever since I saw a story about him on ESPN 5 years or so ago. They were talking about how he ended up falling asleep in the video room on a sofa cause he studies up so much. He is a hard worker and has passion, which is more than I've seen from a lot of current players on this team. From mostly everything I've seen or heard out of him its usually a humorous approach as opposed to a violent one like Mrs. Jones. I hope Jones goes to Dallas, with Tank there I'm sure he won't have trouble finding another gun.

Re: Anyone for Pacman?

Pac Man is a punk, and I want no part of him. Chad Johnson is in no way like Pac Man. He might get a bad rap for showboating, but he plays hard and he doesn't get in trouble off the field. I'd love to see Ocho Cinco here, but no way I'd support getting Pac Man.

Re: Anyone for Pacman?

I don't think we would be better with Johnson here.

Let me qualify this statement.
Please.

We have leadership among our WR corps. Patten
We have emerging leaders. Colston.
We have other veteran, talented guys who need to be pushed. Devery.
We have a hungry kid looking for guidance. Meachum

As much as I like CJ for many reasons. I don't think that he fits here, right now.

No Johnson and no Pac-Man, we don't need cancer in the locker room. We have a good team with good players and if they play as a team again and start blocking better, running the ball more and playing better defense with more blitzing we'll be alright.
