Ochocinco Is the Gift That Keeps on Giving

Chad Ochocinco is so good. How good is he? He's so good he's rewriting the NFL rulebook.
 
Ochocinco rule.jpgOchocinco tweeted that picture on Wednesday. I think some WRs like Reggie Wayne, Larry Fitzgerald, and Randy Moss might have something to say about that, but he is one of the top wideouts in the league and lucky for us, it wasn't just his skills that came back. His entertaining ways are in top form as well.

The rule change isn't the only thing Ocho has been up to this week. As you might have heard, last week he sent deodorant to the Ravens prior to their game because "it's the only thing that can cover me."

This week he tweeted, "I got a nice present for the Steelers---sending them some mustard since they'll never ketchup when we play Sunday." Unfortunately though, not everyone shares his sense of humor. His coach Marvin Lewis played the role of Lt. Harris (Police Academy anyone?) and put an end to his hijinks by not allowing him to send his little gift. Interestingly enough, the Steelers were actually a little offended. "He sent something to the Ravens, so that shows he respects them. So he'd better send something to us," said safety Ryan Clark. The Steelers have a sense of humor, why can't Marvin Lewis?
