i live in cincinnatti so i hear a lot about him. he sounds like a nice guy, gives a lot to charity, and livens up the games. and he has not gone overboard.

I guess I wouldn't be dancing either. The Bengals D has more receptions than your #1 receiver.

Put Chad in our brillant run all the time off. He would be about the same. Andre's bigger and more physical. Chad has an all around better team around him than Andre. Whatever, there both pretty damm good, I was just bringing the point that Chad has to have all this attention around him. Like a middle child or something. Andre was money all year last year and didn't pop off or look like an *****. I would say Chad's a little better than Moss or Carol Owens. At least he hasn't walked off the field before the game was over.

I've never had a problem with celebrations, even though some of them can be kind of stupid (haven't even noticed any recently). I think they should just allow them and have a time limit on them or something. No running all the way to the middle of the field to put the ball there or whatever. Taunting should also be kept to a certain minimum, otherwise the Texans would be humiliated.

Default Endzone PArty!

Im all for Chad Johnson's endzone celebrations! Nothing wrong with that at all! When I Played High school football, I looked forward to doing a jig myself in the endzone!! Scoring a Touchdown is the best feeling! SO dance, have fun with it, whatever floats your boat! Im with Vinny, I thought it was Funny! I respect Chad Johnson, He's a great player! But Im a die hard Texans fan, SO I hope he doesnt score!! GO Texans!!

Unlike Owens and Moss who are just all about themselves, I think Chad MIGHT be just goofing around and pulling peoples leggs. The reason I suspect that is that he isn't like that away from the game, but the other two knucklheads are.

The dancing a celebrating is fine with me because I have always thought football was a game of emotions. As long as it is not disrespectful and is just for fun I think it is alright. I am a fan of chad's and think he and andre johnson are on the same level (even though the stats dont say that this year because dre cant control how many times he is thrown to. and from double coverage).

I dont mind him dancing either, but it sure would be nice to see him eating a slice of humble pie on monday after getting shutdown on sunday.

Im not a big fan of end zone celebrations especially when you pull out a cell phone or sharpie. I gotta say i loved the river dance Chad did Sunday. That was hallarious! At least he did something funny and original unlike Moss's "moon" or TO's "little workout". I think he is a top 10 reciever and I hope that Dre will get his time to shine like Chad once we get a decent OL.

PS. This has to be the stupidist thing Ive ever heard...

LOL @ "Carol" Owens. That's good.

Yeah, I know Andre is solid. I've got him on my fantasy team. He hasn't reaped me any rewards just yet, but I have faith. I just hope he doesn't start this Sunday.

Just keep in mind that Chad Johnson is cousin to Keyshawn Johnson. They obviously inherited the same loud mouth. At least Chad has more talent of the too.

I just don't like showboats. They are all about the individual player over the team. Football is a team sport, by the way, and without a line protecting the QB allowing him to throw the ball, players like Johnson would have nothing to showboat about.

Leave the dancing for the cheerleaders on the sideline. Football players should have a little respect for the rest of the team and stop all the "look at me!" nonsense. That kind of display should be left for tennis players. It's all about the cameras and SportsCenter highlights...immature mentality, IMHO.

And when these little goofy antics attract attention, don't go cryin' when some LB or safety jacks him up in the middle of the field and leaves his limp body lying there moaning and groaning, because don't believe for an instant that showboating displays don't put a target on their back. Add mouth to that equation, and you're just asking for trouble.

He might get away with it now, but it's only a matter of time...because that is "entertainment".
Touchdowns are hard to come by. What's wrong with a player sharing his excitement and joy when he scores? Maybe you need to change the glasses through which you see the celebration - so you can smile instead of get angry. This is, afterall, a GAME. And games are meant to be be entertaining and fun to play. Don't the fans celebrate when our teams score? Some of the things we fans do in celebration make the players antics look mild! So why not let the player enjoy the moment just like us fans? It's Sunday afternoon during football season. It's a game. And we only get to experience this for a brief time each year. Sunday's during football season are fun for us and the players as well. But maybe you're a fan that sits on his hands and doesn't smile when your team scores because that might be selfish and disrespectful of the game. Having emotions are part of the human being. Chill out and have fun on Sundays! And if you can't, at least let the rest of us do it - including the players.

You're right on. Owens and Moss go beyond just having fun. History shows they are problem children for their teams. They demonstrate selfishness. Chad is just having fun. Anyone who's followed Chad through his career realizes it's his nature to have fun, be loose - and at the same time be a great team player and totally dedicated to the game. Sometimes he sleeps in the locker room overnight because he stays so late and starts so early. He's a perfectionist when it comes to being the best he can be. He had a DVD made of all 16 of his dropped passes in 2004 and he's watched it 30+ times to learn what he did wrong! Now he's even better for it. Hey, if a guy is this dedicated to what he does, and succeeds, should it be surprising he feels great about it? He's a big team player and real big when it comes to selflessness in the Cincinnati community. He's NOT all about Chad. That's what many people outside of Cincinnati DON'T know about Chad Johnson. Owens and Moss could learn a lot from Chad if they ever stopped thinking of themselves.

Wouldn't A.J actually have to get into the endzone once in a while before acting like clownass ...just kidding I have him on my fantasy team and I hope he lights it up....after this weekend.
