Marvin Lewis made it clear to FOX19 and a few other reporters after practice Thursday that his comments to San Diego reporters about Chad Ochocinco being "mopey" yesterday have been blown way out of proportion.
An animated Lewis said that he simply answered a question about Chad's mood. "He was mopey that day. Sometimes he's happy. Sometimes he's sad. He's up, he's down, it was nothing negative.
Lewis described all the attention the story was getting as "juvenile".
When asked Thursday morning if he wanted to comment, Ochocinco said that he has too much respect for coach Lewis to go there.
