Cut OCHO NOW

    Re: Cut OCHO NOW

    Then by this reasoning we should cut McCourty for down right getting burnt and cut Mankins cause his penalty(s) gave us no chance to get the ball back.

    Re: Cut OCHO NOW

    Oh yeah cut Brady too.

    We didnt run the ball enough. We should have ground and pounded after we were up 14-0. We scored too quick and relied on the D. The same type of stuff was said after Cleveland last year. Since Merriweather and Mroney left people are looking for someone to blame for something. Like a bunch of chickens pecking at the weak one in the flock.

    That's a fool's argument. The Bill's were down a bunch of player too.

    In Response to Re: Cut OCHO NOW : it turned into a welker touchdown around what 2 minutes later? You know what 2 minutes would have provided the pats at the end of this game? A chance to win in the 2 minute offense.

    Actually, when Chad dropped that pass it was 8:12 on the clock.

    Ocho hasn't performed well. He's been inconsistent at best, and looks lost. Maybe he needs more time. I don't think Moss is the answer, and honestly, don't think anyone on our roster is the answer we need. I'm hopeful that once Price heals he'll see more snaps. Having him and Hernandez on the field together or available will help for sure.

    It's high time we invested a high draft pick in a blue chip WR next year. There are some really good ones, we just need to spend the capital to go get them instead of counting on a converted QB, ST ace, 3rd round draft pick that played in a non-pro style offense, knobby knees, and butterfingers to bail us out.

    That said, we better buck up and pay Welker his due. He, Gronk and Hernandez are our "core" next year.

    That was actually the tight end's fault.  He was supposed to be lined up in the backfield.  You can see he was lined up a BIT back of the line, but apparently not enough.

    I'd take Randy over 85 any day. Half the idiots in Patriots nation didn't realize what they had with Randy Moss. We are seeing it now.
    Posted by 4Adam13


    I said it in the begining when everyone wanted Steve Smith or 85 - neither is the the same league as Moss. Those that think they are you are sadly mistaken and my point has been proven.  And for you Deion Branch believers how has he been doing?

    He's had two great games and one game where he wasn't targeted.  Thanks for asking.

    Re: Cut OCHO NOW

    My flippant response on another thread aside, I don't feel it's time to cut Mr. Johnson

    Yet.

    For the most part it's not play-book related, making mental errors that a good many rookis would have corrected by now. This, and he should, at least for now, learn to shut his mouth. His statements after yesterday's game (which I have devoted its own thread to, one that nobody seems to want to touch) are simply mind boggling. He has shown flashes of improvement but overall he's just not fitting in.  I would give him until the bye week to "get it" or the experiment should be considered a failure.

    What have you been smoking?

    Last week Deion Branch had 8 catches for 129 yards and the week before 7 catches for 93 yards.

    Re: Cut OCHO NOW

    I'm not going to bother reading what is sure to be some entertaining nonsense in this thread, so if this has been said . . .  carpe diem or mea culpa or ex temporaneous . . .  or some latin thing, but I have two things to say about Ocho:

    1) He could have done himself all kinds of favors if he'd hauled in that sure touchdown strike from Brady in the fourth quarter. The Pats scored anyway, and likely would have lost just the same had Ocho caught that ball, but a catch there takes a lot of people's minds off the fact that he can't get on the field because -- apparently -- he's not a quick study, and . . .

    2) I wonder if "heaven" is everything he hoped it would be.

    Why should the Patriots keep spoon-feeding a 10 year NFL Veteran Reciever? there's only 16 regular season games a year...how long do they wait to see if he "catches on"???

    In Response to Re: Cut OCHO NOW : A long time; Because BB threw a good chunk of money at him, he's BB' buddy and BB kicked a HOFer to the curb and won't sign him even though he is practically begging to come back.

    Moss has nothing to do with Ocho.  Whether Ocho stays or goes, Moss is never coming back, not the way he left town.  Belichick gives second chances to players who have had issues elsewhere; if you have problems here and he gets rid of you, you're dead to him.  Moss' meltdown at the end of his time here was pretty epic.

    100% agree.  He is not worth like Taylor Price. Ocho prime time is over.
    Offensive can concentrate on Deion Branch, Wes, 2 Pro Bowl TE Rod Grons. Hernandez, Mathew , Taylor, Elderman. That is enough toys for Tom to work.  Get the money from Ocho to get an experience defensive back.
    In Response to Cut OCHO NOW:
    That's it. I am sick of Ocho. He cost us more than once in this game and one of Tom's INT. was Ochos fault. It was a bad move by BB to get him. I say cut Ocho NOW and cut a few others. We need some new players. We should have beat the Bills easy. I don't even think we sacked Fitz.

    In Response to Re: Cut OCHO NOW : Is Mankins dead to him? No. Calling the owner a liar with no honor and blowing off half a season is okay, but saying you love the team and want to be signed and stay makes you dead to him. What a f'n joke.
    Posted by BabeParilli

    I don't think the Mankins situation had anything to do with Belichick.  It was business, and between Mankins and Kraft.  They worked out the issues between them, and when Mankins signed his contract he was committed to the team and, as he always does, worked his butt off.

    Mankins kept the business side of the game away from the field.  Moss followed an exhilirating opening day win with a bizarre press conference about his contract situation.  His on-field performance was clearly affected.  Other than the 1-handed grab that everybody remembers (and I will contend to the day that I die that it was the greatest catch I've ever seen), Moss did NOT play well last season.  He, unlike Mankins, allowed his contract discontent to affect his on-field performance.

    You can compare the two if you'd like, but Moss does not look any better for the comparison.
