Chad Johnson says here that he’ll have his breakout game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Apparently, Johnson doesn’t realize someone has to throw to him, and it may be the wrong Palmer doing it. Johnson also says he has a new touchdown celebration planned for the Cowboys in which he will kiss the Cowboys star.
“I don’t think he’ll get in,” Pacman Jones said today in response. “If we do our job we can keep him outta the end zone. As long as we get some pressure up front I think we’ll be all right in the back.”
You gotta love Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh defended Terrell Owens on the number of plays that go to him in a game. In a conference call with reporters, which is just freaking weird, both beat their chests for T.O.:
“If they throw him 20 balls and he only caught seven and they lost … throw him 40 and he’s going to catch 14 and they’re going to win,” Ocho Cinco said. “I tell y’all out of that 14 that he’s gonna get, some of those are going to be big plays and some of those are going to add up to touchdowns.”
“Tell T.O. to tell Jason Garrett they need to throw the ball to him 24 times,” Houshmandzadeh said. “Me and Chad ain’t had 17 balls thrown our way in a game yet combined. Tell him they need to give it to him 24 or 25 times. As you see, when the ball don’t go through him, they don’t move the ball. Give him the rock. Throw the ball to him the whole time. They don’t even have to run the ball! Jason Witten needs 15 catches, T.O. needs 20. That’s the recipe for success right there.”
In other news, with the suspension of Mike Jefferson for taking an NFL-banned performance substance, the Dallas Cowboys signed Travis Wilson to the practice squad. Wilson was a third round pick in 2006 of the Cleveland Browns, but he never made an impact. He did not play at all last year. He is an Oklahoma graduate/
