Ochocinco -- Taunting Atlanta Falcons with T-Shirts

10/20/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Ochocinco is up to his old tricks ... trying to mess with his next opponents -- the Atlanta Falcons -- by sending their defensive backs t-shirts with his mug plastered all over the front.

Sources close to Chad tell us the Cincinnati Bengals star shipped boxes of shirts featuring the "Mad Chad" character from his iPhone app to Falcons cornerbacks Brent Grimes, Dunta Robinson and Chris Owens and safeties William Moore and Thomas DeCoud.

If you recall, Chad sent gift baskets of deodorant to the Baltimore Ravens last year ... so they didn't sweat the matchup.  And in 2004, he sent Pepto-Bismol to the Cleveland Browns -- insisting they would be sick to their stomachs trying to cover him.

So why the t-shirts this year? We couldn't get an explanation from Chad ... but we're guessing he'll probably have some sort of explanation before Sunday's game.

To whatever...in answer to your question: 26 receptions for 316 yards and 1 TD this season, second best on the Bengals.

So, yeah, I think they DO back him up. Now, if he had much less than that...I would have a problem with this. But, I really don't. If you've got game, you can be as weird or obnoxious as you want...as long as you can back up your mouth.

mostly likely b/c Chad will be "undressing" his competition out there on Sunday....or at least that what he hopes for.

But c'mon....was it really that much of a leap???

Mr. X: you saying Chad is second best on the Bengals in receiving...really? Second best on the Bengals? I laugh, I cry. That's like saying you almost got off the Titanic. Chile please.

TO is spanking his ass on touchdowns and receptions...Ochodroppo cost them the game when he dropped a pass...yeah, that's good trash talking with t-shirts. Time to kiss the baby, Chad. TO has usurped you on a team that frankly, sucks. If the Falcons lose, it won't be because Chad beat them, it'll be because they beat themselves. Ocho is just a media whore, no more, no less. If it works for him, great. But he rarely backs up that talk....

But, I do find him entertaining in a car wreck sort of way. He's lucky Dunta Robinson won't be playing. :)

If something like this makes you mad, YOU are the douche.

Chad is just having fun... He's not the best receiver there's ever been but look at whose been throwing him the ball... Jon Kitna, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Carson Palmer... C'mon, the guy is an elite receiver in the NFL and he likes to joke around. That ***got that said he taunted the Jets last year, Revis and Chad are friends!! They were having fun! Sure Revis shut him down, but he also shut down EVERYONE.. Randy Moss included. Get real, and child please....

Only the 33rd receiver in NFL history to get 10,000 yards or more. Has done so with some pretty bad QBs. Yeah, he's pretty decent.

Haters gonna hate.

@keith you are a dumbass Chad Johnson is 10X the offensive football player Dion Sanders, Dion shouldn't even be in any offensive catagory. You are probably a teenager because you don't know **** about football kid.
