Ochocinco, T.O. swap barbs on Twitter after loss

After Cincinnati officially blew up San Diego's playoff hopes last week, our own Gregg Doyel pointed out that the Bengals look much better offensively without Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco.

The same couldn't be said for a Cincy offensive unit that struggled to muster seven points in a season-ending loss to the Ravens Sunday.

Which may explain why Ochocinco and Owens took to Twitter immediately following the game to exchange a series of barbs about how they were both to blame for the loss (even though they didn't play).

It started with what appears to be a Kanye West-Taylor Swift joke:



And then escalated with this series:







Now, it appears that they're smack-talking each other across Twitter, even though neither of them played and, really, neither seems likely to come back to the Bengals in 2011.

What might be more likely, though, is that, because they know they're not coming back, the two wideouts are lashing out at everyone who tried to say that the Bengals were terrible offensively only because Ochocinco and Owens were on the field.

Either way, it appears pretty obvious that Ocho and T.O. will be taking their talents elsewhere in the coming season. The only question is who'll want to put up with drama?

Ochocinco, T.O. swap barbs on Twitter after loss

I completely agree with the last comment. New England should be the model for all franchises the emulate. The Pats have the philosophy that no one player is greater than the goal of the entire team. If a player is not a good teammate in the locker room he is simply not going to be playing on Sundays in New England. T.O. and Ocho just don't get what being a complete football player means. Let them tweet that everybody is "haters" on them while they are struggling to find a job in the offseason. Maybe they will go to the UFL where they can really pad their individual stats and work on their endzone dances.

What a bunch of spoiled over payed cry baby football players.  Well at least TO did show up on occasions and proves he still does have game, but as stated, who wants either one of the Bozos. No team needs one WR; they all need what NE has, ATL has, NO has, and others, which is a group of WR's who don't bitch, tweet, and gripe 24/7, they just go out and play the game the way it is supposed to be played. These players respect their coaches, their organizations, and their teammates.  TO and Chad need to just go away, take their f'n money and just leave.  THEY ARE AWFUL TEAMMATES!
