08:08 AM ET 12.23 | The usually mundane exercise of an out-of-town media call set off some fireworks Wednesday. [A reporter in] San Diego asked Marvin Lewis about how Chad Ochocinco was doing especially with his ankle injury, which gave Lewis the opportunity to add a new adjective to many in which he has described 85 this year. Said Lewis: "Well, he's being his mopey self. Hopefully, he can pull himself out of it and move forward ... When things don't go Chad's way, that's kinda how it happens." It didn't take long for those comments to get to Ochocinco, who did not take too kindly too them. ... Said Ochocinco on Twitter: "Since when the (heck) am I ever mopey? I'm injured for the 1st time in 9 years and it's called being mopey, unless I'm dead then I get respect. Did anyone get the license plate to the bus I was just threw under?"

For the love of God, Chad, you have to use the past participle thrown in this instance. I can tolerate your silly antics and your goofy name change; but if you think you can butcher English grammar, then God help you!

Marv is on his way out of Cincy, so why is he acting childish calling his players names?
