On December 30, 2009, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco claimed he would imitate Fireman Ed if he scores a touchdown in his next game against the Jets, on January 3, 2010. The day after the Bengals' loss in Week 17, Chad Johnson got in contact with Fireman Ed through Twitter and provided him with a VIP package for the Jets first round playoff game at Cincinnati, as a way to make up for the "trash-talking" that occurred before the game. Though he was appreciative of the offer he declined, on the moral ground that he did not think it was right to be flown out to the game by the opposing team. He did however say that if the Jets made him an offer he would take them up on it, though no offer was made.
Loyal to the Jets and the front office said "we don't love dem hoes" : pachah:
