LATROBE, Pa. -- Pittsburgh Steelers left tackle Max Starks wasn't amused by Chad Ochocinco's recent trash talking.

According to an interview Friday with Ken Laird of Pittsburgh's ESPN radio 1250, one statement in particular really bothered Starks, one of the team's locker-room leaders. Ochocinco recently said on his VH1 reality dating show, "Man, I haven't seen this many girls on a football field since the last time we played the Steelers."

"That right there said enough for me, and I wish I played defense at that moment," Starks said. "But you know what, I got a bunch of guys that’s going to be in these dorm rooms later that will be more than happy to take up that challenge for me. Chad is who he is and he always has his frequent sayings. But some things you just don't say."

Starks says he will make sure the Steelers won't forget Ochocinco's statement this season. Pittsburgh plays Cincinnati on Nov. 8 and Dec. 12.

"It's something that I will keep inside until that week," Starks said. "I've already gotten the DVR of it. So just in case someone needs additional motivation, on top of the motivation that is already for Cincinnati alone."
