Saints-Bengals offers dichotomy of receiver styles
Question of the Day
Marques Colston’s on-air appearances consist primarily of public service announcements about blood donation and video game ratings for children. He rarely does commercials and quietly slips in and out of the locker room, often in a sweat shirt with the hood pulled up, as if he’d rather not be noticed.
If the Cincinnati Bengals offer the NFL’s prime examples of attention-grabbing, “diva” receivers with Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, their opponent this Sunday, the New Orleans Saints, field a receiving corps at the opposite end of the publicity spectrum.
“If we come off a couple of bad games here where a guy like Marques hasn’t caught enough balls or Lance (Moore) or one of these other guys, you’re not going to hear about them yapping about it in the media,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. “They know their time will come … whereas in other places, the minute something goes wrong, somebody’s chirping. That’s why I love my guys.”
“Success is measured in what you do in winning and losing and I think the New Orleans guys should be very proud of that,” Lewis said. “It doesn’t matter how much noise you make. … Those guys have really come together and done a great job. (They) kind of seem to play very unselfishly, which is very fun to watch.”
“I don’t think you can limit a guy in what he does after he leaves this building,” Lewis said. “Unfortunately, people want to listen to them. They don’t have much of substance to say very often, particularly when they leave here. They do have an audience for some reason.”
They launched “The T.Ocho Show” on Oct. 12 on the Versus cable network. The Bengals (2-9) haven’t won a game since and are currently mired in an eight-game losing streak.
Each had his own VH-1 reality shows on the side _ Ochocinco’s involved finding a date. There’s also an Ochocinco iPhone app. The Bengals receivers were two of the first three players fined for violating the league’s restrictions on using social media 90 minutes before a game.
“I am focused on football. What I do in my free time is my business,” Ochocinco said. “When I’m outside of here, it’s time for Chad to do Chad and live the life that I do have outside of football. … But while I’m here, you know you can’t question my dedication and my commitment to this team or what I’ve done.”
