Has Ochocinco 'lost his nerve and work ethic'?

A lot of mock drafts -- including those of Rob Rang and Chad Reuter here on this very site -- have A.J. Green, the seventh-overall prospect on our board, going to the Bengals with the fourth overall pick.

While Green's talent certainly elevates Cincinnati's interest, so does the likelihood that they're ready to move on from the Chad Ochocinco/Terrell Owens era. Firming that theory up a report Wednesday from CSN New England's Tom Curran on that very subject.

Curran reports, via a "well-informed source," that Ocho "has lost his nerve and work ethic."

Burn. This probably means that Curran can expect an offer to rumble at some point from Ochocinco. Oh, and that the Patriots aren't interested in inking Chad, which was actually the point of the whole thing in the first place.

El Ocho and the Bengals

One interesting trade Curran does mention, though, is getting Steve Smith from the Panthers for a third-round pick.

I'd actually argue that the Panthers need to get a touch more than that, particularly because the Patriots currently hold the Panthers' second-rounder (the first pick in that round), and, unless Carolina's front office is completely devoid of human emotion, they'd probably like to recoup close to as much as they gave to New England last year so they could draft Armanti Edwards. Who, um, hasn't quite panned out like Smith.

Pimpslapped...have to take Marvin Harrison off that list. Wasn't he allegedly involved in a shooting near a building (I believe a carwash actually) in Philadelphia 2-3 years ago? Rest of the list is good though. Donald Driver, Hines Ward, Wes Welker, some other guys who stay out of trouble off the field and don't cause headaches for their teams. For every one good guy there seems to be 2-3 divas at the position whose egos are so far out of whack they don't even realize how foolish they make themselves look. Or they simply don't care.
