CLEVELAND Chad Johnson kicked off his touchdown-celebration tour Monday night on Cincinnati's sideline, where the Bengals outlandish wide receiver slipped a faux gold Hall of Fame blazer over his shoulder pads.
Canton, he's predicting, will be a final destination.

Until then, next stop: The Dawg Pound.

"I hope I get in there," Johnson said in preparation of Cincinnati's visit on Sunday to Cleveland. "They can give me some popcorn - throw some beers at me - whatever they want to do. I'm going to jump in the Dawg Pound."

It remains to be seen if anyone will be sitting there.

Even the most die-hard Browns fled early from last week's season-opening 34-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, a humiliating defeat that prompted Cleveland general manager Phil Savage to trade starting quarterback Charlie Frye to Seattle two days later.

The Browns, just 18-39 at home since their 1999 expansion return, are fumbling and bumbling once again.

And now that Frye has been jettisoned, the Browns will start Derek Anderson, their former No. 2 QB who failed to win the starter's job in training camp and was inserted to replace a rattled Frye in the first half last week.

Anderson's future under center could last one play, one quarter or a few games. He'll stay in as long as he's healthy and as long as he's not throwing passes to the opposition. That's when rookie Brady Quinn will get the call from coach Romeo Crennel.

Cleveland fans are already clamoring and chanting for Quinn, Notre Dame's departed star, who could make his regular-season debut against the Bengals.

"There's always a chance a guy can play," Crennel said. "He's only one play away from being in the game."

Expecting, well, at least hoping, to be competitive this season, the Browns barely put up a fight while being pulverized by the Steelers, who capitalized on early turnovers and generous field position to win their eighth straight over Cleveland.

Now, here come the Bengals, licking their lips after getting six turnovers and beating the Baltimore Ravens 27-20 in their opener.

On paper, it doesn't look good for the brown-and-orange against their black-and-orange Ohio brethren.

"We're probably going to have to play the best games of our lives," Crennel said.

There's some confidence, huh?

For Cleveland to have any chance, the Browns, beaten 30-0 by the Bengals last season at home, must do a better job on pass defense after allowing Ben Roethlisberger to throw four touchdowns passes a week ago. Two of those scores came on broken coverage by Cleveland's secondary.

The Browns' No. 1 priority will be trying to contain No. 85, the affable Johnson who, in addition to leaping into the stands, could make a significant jump in the Bengals' record books.

Johnson, whose early Hall of Fame resume includes leading the AFC in receiving yards the past four years, needs 81 yards to tie Isaac Curtis' career club mark (7,101). But although he's on the brink of making team history, Johnson has bigger goals in mind for himself and the Bengals.

"It doesn't mean much," said Johnson, downplaying the significance of catching the speedy Curtis, who also wore 85. "I respect all records that I do achieve. It says a lot about what I've accomplished, what I've worked for since I was young.

"But my focus right now from this point on in my career is getting a ring. That's it. I could care less about the numbers right now. I've done all I can do. My goal coming in here was to get to the Pro Bowl. I've been there. My goal behind that was break a couple of records, set my name in the foundation of this organization. I've done that. My goal now is getting to Arizona (site of this season's Super Bowl), period. That's it. And I will do it by all means necessary."

Johnson has enjoyed modest success against the Browns, scoring six TDs in 12 career games. Cleveland has been able to contain him largely because of cornerback Leigh Bodden, who Johnson calls a friend and "one of the best cover corners in the NFL."

Bodden missed Cleveland's last meeting with the Bengals because of an ankle injury, but he's looking forward to another crack at Johnson.

"That's one of the best receivers in the league," said Bodden, who was limited in practice this week by a groin injury. "To play him twice a year, that's great for me to show where I am as a corner. If I do a good job against him, I can do a good job against any receiver in the league."

Johnson had seven receptions for 123 yards the last time he faced the Browns. However, he didn't score, failing to make good on a previous promise to vault into the Dawg Pound on his last trip to Lake Erie's shoreline.

Bodden's aware of Johnson's latest plan to enter Cleveland's notoriously rowdy bleacher section without a ticket. He has ideas of his own.

"If I'm going to be on him all game, I'm responsible for him getting in the end zone," Bodden said. "So he's not going to get in the end zone."

And if Johnson does, Bodden says he should go ahead with his jump.

"If he wants to get beaten up," Bodden said.

Literally, I have been around the Dog Pound, and all it is, is a bunch of drunk Cleveland natives who don't have anything better to do than go to the game. They will probably try to choke him too death.

I disagree with one part of your post. I hate watching CJ because he never stops running his mouth, he thinks he is the greatest thing since sliced bread. The guy is an ego maniac, wether it be for fun or not, let your game talk for you, Mr. Gold Teeth and blonde Mohawk (last year).

Well if given the choice I'd rather hear Chad and his egomania than a dude like Pacman swearing he didn't do it.

Not sure if the game needs more Chad Johnsons antics, but the latter is correct.

I'll bet he runs towards the fans with the appearance that he'll follow through... and stop right before the jump to throw $5,000 in tens into the crowd.

If Marvin lets him do this, it is poor coaching IMO. Letting one of your star players jump into the stands and risk possible injury is just retarded. Just because you have pads doesn't mean you are immortal. NBA players would get fined 5 games for this.

Ocho Cinco should stop "talking" about what he's going to do and just do it. I think he's a great player and he's fun to watch. He's having fun with this and he knows that a majority of the fans like his fun-loving antics.

I am not saying he shouldn't talk - he's too entertaining, but he just shouldn't talk so much about what he'll do when he scores. Just do it.

I have a feeling Ocho Cinco might of bought out a section of seats, and replaced them with some Bengals fans from his crew. They will be dressed up as the dog pound, have dog masks on, but then when chad does it they'll bust out their ocho cinco jerseys. He honestly couldn't be this stupid

Interesting. "Here We Go, Brownies, Here We Go!" "Woof! Woof!". With that kind of chant, they sound harmless.
