Ochocinco: Who cares about Steelers?


GEORGETOWN, Ky. -- The back-and-forth between Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco and the Pittsburgh Steelers continues.


OchocincoFirst, Ochocinco upset Pittsburgh players recently with his comments on his VH1 reality dating show, saying, "Man, I haven't seen this many girls on a football field since the last time we played the Steelers." Pittsburgh locker room leader and starting left tackle Max Starks responded to those comments by giving Ochocinco a stern warning.

Wednesday in Bengals camp, Ochocinco was informed that Steelers players were not at all happy with his recent trash-talking.

His response?

"Who gives a [expletive] about the Steelers?" Ochocinco said bluntly before going to sign autographs.

It's early in training camp, but there's already plenty of trash-talking going on between these two division rivals. The Steelers have a lot of pride after being swept last year in two games by the Bengals. Meanwhile, Cincinnati believes it's the top team in the AFC North after winning the division.

But it will be a while before these teams can settle their differences on the field. The Steelers and Bengals do not play this season until Nov. 8 and Dec. 12.
