08:04 AM ET 09.15 | A day after former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi took aim at Chad Ochocinco, two current Bengals were critical, though less direct. When asked about the differences between last year's offense and this one, especially when it comes to getting out of the huddle earlier, Cedric Benson pointed out one reason. "Because you had some challenges out on the edges you had to deal with," Benson said. "You don't have those anymore. Guys line up and generally know what they need to do and what the task is on each play." ... [Andrew Whitworth] was asked if losing big-name players ended up [making the team better]. "Sad to say, as much as I love you guys, sometimes stars are born from y'all, not necessarily success on the football field," Whitworth said.

Benson is jealous. He's putting lipstick on the pig that his career has become.

His short time in the Travis County slammer introduced him to lipstick application?

Ced needs to start w/ the man in the mirror. He's no saint and hasn't lived up to his ability in the League. At least Chad hasn't been a poster boy for the Cincy PD.

What a waste of oxygen Chad Eight Five is.

September 15, 2011  08:47 AM ET

Sounds like they were just calling Chad self-centered, selfish, and old.

He's playing for Billy now...He'll be fine..it was his 1st game with a new offense...and his team won...to no fault of his....i mean, what did people expect? For him to put up Randy Moss numbers?...lets be serious

September 15, 2011  08:57 AM ET

Another made up story...they could be talking about Palmer...he is the one who quit after being paid star money and providing second string performance.

September 15, 2011  09:01 AM ET

That was legit. They didn't name names, and kept it classy. That wasn't throwing under the bus, more like waving bye.

Chad had problems here with the law and banks ,served a warrent from the sherriffs dept for eviction of his apartment for not paying rent , car repossed for not making payments, walked out of a few resturants w/out paying his bill.........you would think that idiot with the money he makes could atleast pay his bills......and he will fly off the handle sooner or later even playing in NE, just the way guys like him are

September 15, 2011  09:16 AM ET
