During the the team's 22-9 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, Chad Ochocinco took a massive shot earlier in the game that knocked his helmet off. Just as he stood, with some help from trainers and teammates, Chad appeared to be a tad bit woozy.

Chad tweeted during the game:

"Man Im sick of getting hit like that , its the damn preseason shit! 1day I'm gone jump up and start throwing hay makers , #Tylenolplease."

Chad's pissivity level undoubtedly reached a five.

The NFL didn't much appreciate a violation of one of their social media rules. So the NFL is fining Chad Ochocinco for two violations, according to Jason La Canfora, for "possession of an electronic device and posting messages on a social media site." The fine will cost $25,000, which is basically the same as buying a happy meal at McDonalds for most of us. That's right, Chad. We love McDonalds too!
