Big voices; Chad responds

The Bengals not only play the big boys Opening Day in three-time Super Bowl champ Tom Brady’s Patriots, but they also get the big voices for the 1 p.m. game in Foxboro, Mass. CBS is sending their top announcing team of play-by-play man Jim Nantz and analyst Phil Simms. For the following two weeks, the Paul Brown Stadium opener against the Ravens and the Sept. 26 game in Carolina, the Bengals get play-by-play man Bill Macatee and analyst Rich Gannon.

The Ocho has responded.

He was fined fined $25,000 Tuesday for violating two NFL game policies –- possession of an electronic device and posting messages on a social media site – when the Bengals beat the Eagles Aug. 20. 

Two messages appeared on his Twitter page during the prohibited period for players to be using social media, which begins 90 minutes prior to kickoff and lasts until postgame media obligations are fulfilled.

Asked to comment, he texted, “Child Please!”
