He's finally done it. Chad Ochocinco is dropping that moniker and going back to his birth name of Johnson. Here are questions for you to discuss on this Monday evening: which Chad do you remember the most? The man who went by Johnson and saw his best statistical seasons as a pro? Or the showman named "Ochocinco" who brought attention, notoriety and publicity to the small-market Bengals?

Are you a Chad Johnson/Ochocinco hater or supporter? Discuss.
