Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco, who lobbied the team for weeks to sign Terrell Owens, raved about the acquisition of the 36-year-old Owens (pictured).

"We're gonna have a great offense," Ochocinco said on 106.7 the Fan in Washington, D.C., courtesy of "I don't think people really understand the impact Terrell will have on us as an offense. Since the game of football has been played, has there ever been two receivers of this caliber on the same field? There's always a No. 1, there's always a No. 2,  and there's somewhat of a drop-off at No. 2. BUt I think it's sort of evened out as far as level of play and level of consistency that we've had over the years. This is going to be really interesting to see what defense are going to do to not take just us away, but then you have to deal with [Jordan] Shipley, [Jermaine] Gresham, Andre Caldwell, Matt Jones and we got the running game. What do you do? It's like a dream team in a sense and anything short of a Super Bowl will be very disappointing."
