There’s little question that Chad Ochocinco has been the most polarizing Bengals receiver in the past 20 years. Two reasons: 1) he speaks his mind (for better or for worse), and he’s drawn hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines all in the name of entertainment; 2) he’s pretty damn good on the field.
With his eight-yard score late in the fourth quarter today against the Falcons, Ochocinco made the 65th TD catch of his career – all in Cincinnati – and he broke the club’s receiving TD record that had been held the past 11 years by Carl Pickens (grumpy, not so popular).
Sure, he made most of those touchdown catches when his name was Chad Johnson, but still, that’s a pretty impressive marker. Just think what would have happened if the Bengals had given in to Ochocinco’s demand for a trade a few offseasons ago. Well, he wouldn’t have set the club record for TDs.
