Keep Talking 85


Chad Ochocinco has already tweeted during team meetings at last month's minicamp, so it isn't a surprise that he is trying to go to the next level, which is twittering during games and trying to one up a couple NBA players who tweeted from the locker room at halftime.

While it is true that he would violate NFL rules by tweeting from the bench area during games, there is nothing to preclude him from tweeting from the locker room before the game, during halftime and immediately after the game. That is more likely to happen and you might see Ochocinco and other players doing that. Then again, after Spygate and with teams always trying to get an edge on competition, do we see teams with laptops on the sideline this season?

After being silent for most of last season and this offseason, he is definitely being heard from often since opening his Twitter account in early June. One thing is for certain -- a talkative 85 is good for Marvin Lewis and the Bengals. That means he is committed, happy and ready to put behind a miserable 2008, when he posted the worst numbers since his rookie year of 2001.
