Chad Ochocinco Back To Chad Johnson

Things are tough for Cleveland Browns fans.  You know that.  The arrow is pointing up, however, isn't it?  What about four hours south of Cleveland, in Cincinnati?  First, Carson Palmer requests a trade - which is denied by Mike Brown, of course.  Now comes word that Chad Ochocinco is changing his name BACK to Chad Johnson.


What does it really mean?  Well, for one, the Cincinnati Bengals are now a complete joke.  Really.  Their quarterback with deteriorating skills - and $50 million worth of contract - wants out and threatens to retire if he isn't traded.  Their 'star' wide receiver is changing his name - again - from a word that literally means 8-5 back to the name he was born with - Johnson.


"I don't have a choice right now," Ochocinco told ESPN's Trey Wingo. "I've done enough with the Ocho thing."


Keep your heads up high, Browns fans, it could be worse - you could be a Cincinnati Bengals fan.
