Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi criticized Chad Ochocinco for his tweet on Tuesday afternoon. The veteran linebacker, turned ESPN analyst, said that the receiver does not have the right mentality a player apart of that (The Patriots) organization should have.
First of all, if you have not seen Ochocinco’s tweet, here it is -
“Just waking up after a late arrival,I’ve never seen a machine operate like that n person,to see video game numbers put up n person was WOW”
After seeing the tweet, Bruschi shared his thoughts while on WEEI.
“Youâre not someone whoâs on another team or watching TV,” Bruschi said. “Youâre not an analyst. Youâre a part of it. They want you to be a part of it. So get with the program because obviously youâre not getting it and youâre tweeting because youâre saying, âItâs amazing to seeâ? Itâs amazing to see because you donât understand it. You still donât understand it and itâs amazing to you because you canât get it.”
âStop tweeting and get in your playbook. Wake up! If youâre just waking up now — I donât know when this was, six minutes ago? — get out your bed and get to the stadium and watch some film if you still think itâs amazing. If youâre in it and you know what youâre doing and you execute out there you donât think itâs amazing. You know why? Because itâs what youâre supposed to do.â
On Thursday, BruschiÂ went on SportsCenter to defend his comments on the wide receiver. (Video Below)
On Thursday’s edition of ESPN’s NFL Live, Bruschi commented on the aftermath of his critism and he stands by it.
“I was expecting almost an immediate response from this,” Bruschi said. “Since that tweet, there hasn’t been anything else from Chad. There’s just been sort of like a radio silence. Is he just focusing on San Diego, which he should be right now? I think that maybe he’s starting to get the message.”
