November 13, 2008 -- Chad Ocho Cinco credits Donovan McNabb for attitude adjustment
"I blew his phone up," Ocho Cinco said Wednesday, according to the Inquirer. "Donovan was a big influence ... He took me in that direction, instead of thinking about, 'Oh, I'm tired of losing and I don't want to be here anymore,' but just thinking about, 'Man, a lot of people wish they were in your shoes just to have the ability to play in the NFL.' That kind of turned me around, and that's why I've been as positive as I have been this year, and even though we're losing, man, I've just been plugging away."
