After repeatedly proclaiming his love for the Bill Belichick, the controversial wide receiver is singing Rex Ryan's praise. has a summary of Ohchocinco's comments from this week, his latest attempt to get on the radar of the teams in arguably football's best division.

"I respect the New York area, they have a great coach that anyone would die to play for," he said of Ryan. "It's like a a player as the coach. He has the same mindset that we should have but he says what he feels. You're not supposed to do that as a head coach. But when you do, it's awesome. That's a very refreshing feeling, very refreshing."

"The Dolphins have always been my team since I've grown up," he told the Sun-Sentinel this week. "Anytime I play Madden, I play with the Dolphins."
