    All commentary about his personality aside, he did a pretty good job. It was pretty impressive.

    I saw Ochocinco as the kicker on NFL.com and I thought they had screwed something up. They do that sometimes.

    Then I saw the game on NFLN and...

    That was impressive. I already knew he was going to be successful but I really didn't expect it to be that pretty of a kick.

    Yeah, he loves soccer and has kicked since high school. He said he can hit from 50 or 60 from either hash. I kicked too and it is tough so I'm impressed.

    Yep, XP was near perfect, and the ensuing kickoff was a little short, but acceptable.

    Tired of his mouth, but I have to admit that the dude did a great job kicking.

    I guess this means that, even if he is a knucklehead, the dude is a heck of an athlete.

    If he could punt, do you think the Bungles could free up two roster spots? :thinking:

    It was inside the 10, right? There are a lot of kickers who can't get it in the end zone. I thought that was a decent enough kick off.

    Commentator: "Chad is kicking due to a groin injury to kicker Shane Graham."

    LOL. I bet Chad and some buddies paid Graham to "tweak his groin" so he could kick the extra point and the kickoff.

    As much as I don't care for the guy, this was awesome.

    The good news is not that Chad's a pretty good kicker, it's that if he talks too much again we can tell him to put his foot in his mouth.

    But can't hate on kicks that were so pretty!
