Take heed, Ike Taylor and William Gay ... and this goes for you, too, Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark -- after all, Chad Ochocinco doesn't want you to violate an NFL decree.

The following notice was posted in Ochocinco's locker in advance of this weekend's Bengals-Steelers clash in Pittsburgh, a game that will determine first place in the AFC North:

Rule #1059:
It is against NFL policy to cover Chad Ochocinco man to man. It has always been a rule but with the events of last year we must have forgotten who he was. Please note that he is still the most uncoverable receiver in the league. This rule is for the safety of embarrassment to all defensive backs.

The Steelers may have violated Rule #1059 in Week 3 when Ochocinco was limited to five catches for 54 yards in the Bengals' 23-20 win. No word yet if the NFL will fine Pittsburgh for holding No. 85 without a touchdown and below 100 receiving yards. -- Nate Davis

Keep talking, Chad. Your next good game against Ike Taylor will be your first one.

Winner winner chicken dinner! Thank you for pointing this out. Just goes to show that shutting the guy up on the field still might not be enough.

His act is old and tiresome; I'm hoping Silverback can Corell Buckhalter and having picjing up his teefs again. He used to be entertaining when he actually was relevant; but now it's just white noise when he talks.

Ike Taylor has owned him from the time he had his stupid checklist and now the rule. Here's hoping he forgets whose on the field and where they're at just one time this upcoming weekend.

For some reason I believe that Silverback would love to get a shot on him that will rattle his teeth. Silverback is all business and Johnson is all entertainment; one doesn't mix with the other.

Ryan Clark saw Harrison's shot on Buckhalter and thought "It shoulda been mine." He'll be the one to make up for lost time by giving Ocho the Welker-McGahee special.
