Though his days in the NFL are long over, Chad Johnson is still supporting the team that drafted and made him one of the league's best receivers.
Johnson took to Twitter today to make some bold proclamations regarding the Bengals, including an AFC North crown after narrowly losing it to the Steelers last year.
Bengals are winning the division this year...— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 21, 2015
Most people are picking Pittsburgh to repeat as division champs, but Chad isn't buying the hype surrounding them. He also believes Andy Dalton is the QB that will get Cincinnati over the playoff hump and make a deep postseason run.
Don't understand how people disrespect Andy Dalton, gets to the playoffs each year, this is their year though...— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 21, 2015
Note: The account Johnson is Retweeting is not actually Cam Newton.
Johnson makes some good points as to why the Bengals should win the division. Heck, they almost won it last year with a glut of injuries to key players, all of whom are expected to return healthy this year.
Apparently, Chad is not aware (or completely denying) Bengals fans actually booed Dalton at a recent charity softball game.
Who knows? Maybe those were Pittsburgh fans booing Dalton.
