    Ochocinco wants to kick in Pro Bowl

    CINCINNATI -- Chad Ochocinco wants to show a Pro Bowl audience that he can kick it as well as catch it.

    The Bengals receiver did some kickoffs Thursday during practice for the Pro Bowl in Miami, hoping to convince the coaches that he's capable of going toe-to-toe in the all-star game.

    Ochocinco told The Associated Press in a phone interview after practice that he's planning to kick field goals during practice on Friday. He's hoping to persuade AFC coaches that he could be more than a just receiver during the game on Sunday.

    Ochocinco kicked an extra point and had a kickoff during a preseason game for the Bengals this season.

    Maybe he can get water for Revis, too.

    In light of what Nate Kaeding said about not being able to mentally get over his 1st missed FG vs the Jets, I say why not Ocho Cinco?

    Why are kickers so darn mentally fragile?! A kicker's psyche compares to a boxer with a glass jaw.

    You can "Freeze" them w/ timeouts. They can get spooked/upset/broken by a miss.

    It amazes me that these guys...grown men...are so g'darn weak minded. I mean imagine if a QB broken down after his an INT? Or a WR after a drop? Or a RB after being hit behind the line or fumbling the ball away.

    I realize that the game is hard and there's pressure on them. But there's pressure on every other guy the roster to make sure they do what they're supposed to do: throw, run, catch, block, tackle, snap, etc. Come on kickers.. . MAN UP!

    Because it's such a precision talent. If anything is off just slightly, then you are going to miss, and that can mess with your head.

    People act like what kickers do is easy, but it's one of the hardest things to excel at in football.

    Hey Ocho claims he can nail anything from 48 on in. Hell I'd take him if he could nail a 30 yarder, it'd be an upgrade from what we had to deal with this past season.

    If he kicked it, I bet Revis could block it... if Revis suited up for the NFC. :laugh2:
