“You [expletive] right. Can I curse? Don’t bleep it, I’m just being me. [Expletive] right,” Ochocinco told reporters Wednesday morning in Indianapolis.
“Let me address this,” he added. “The New England Patriots is an elite organization where everything is in house and always stays in house, it’s like Fort Knox.”
Judging by his regular season stats, one may think he’s been unable to grasp the Pats playbook or gain a strong rapport with quarterback Tom Brady.
“No, there’s no system [problem],” he said. “I’m extremely intelligent, extremely intelligent. Football sense, life, the way I carry myself, the things I do, we can all see I have sense, I’m smart. It’s just that it didn’t play out the way it was supposed to play out.
“[Brady and I are] dating,” he joked when asked about his relationship with the quarterback. “First year of a marriage is always rough, always rough. I’ve always had the chip on my shoulder, that’s my style, it’s the way I am. If I don’t have the chip, I’m going to create it by saying something to someone who had to deal with me that week. I’m just going to be quiet.”
