08:02 AM ET 08.09 | Chad Johnson chose to clam up a day after the airing of Hard Knocks. Vontae Davis, on the other hand, faced his critics head-on Wednesday -- and with a smile. It was a contrast in styles Wednesday morning, the first day A.H.K. -- After Hard Knocks. Davis answered every question about his conditioning and commitment (both are issues among the coaching staff, the show exposed) with good cheer. Meanwhile, Johnson brushed past the pack of reporters saying nothing but, "I don't do media anymore." ... Davis didn't watch the program, he said, but knew something was up when his phone started buzzing in the 10 o'clock hour. Among the calls he received: One from his grandmother, Adeline Davis, who told him to get into shape.

Chad Johnson - "I don't do media anymore."


Good. So this means that after you retire we won't see your **** on espen, NFLN, CBS, NBC, FOX, etc...

Correct?

Davis' grandmother should be hired to coach the team. Go granny!

Disappointing the coaches and the team is one thing.

Disappointing grandma is something else entirely.

Yes, the unfathomable enigma that is Chad Johnson.

He's probably waiting until he knows the playbook, so he doesn't have to respond with "no comment".

I Can't Wait to see Hard Knocks!!!

At the end of season last year, he still didn't know the Patriots' playbook. Anything more complicated than "run down to the second parking meter and stop by the Buick with no wheels" completely befuddles him.

Little orphan Chad Johnson. "It's the hard knock life, for us..."

Man, when Ron White came up with that line, do you suppose he knew it would become part of the Great American Vocabulary?

Is he in it to win it?
