[QUOTE]Basically my point 420. he did his job and still gets talked about. How about the coaches calling his number? He is fine. A bit immature and misunderstood, but Chad is giving is all, working hard and doing everything possible to help. What that ends up being is based on how they work him in, but im happy with HIS progress. Now the coaches need to work harder to get him the ball as he more dynamic than Branch after the catch, and can get open downfield , the ball just needs to be on time. If they actually draw up plays for Chad, I have no doubt he can perform Thats the biggest difference I see. Wes, Hernandez , etc have plays for them when they get it, and Chad is usually just an outlet/3rd option and the timing for those plays are harder to get down .

I don't think they need more than that from him, but at the same time, I think they can get more than that from him.
All NE needed after that last playoff loss was one perimeter player who could threaten, unlike Tate, who was a bust at WR.
Ocho obviously isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, not like Moss, Branch or Welker, who are incredibly football smart. And Ne's offense is brutal on WRs. They basically have to keep up with Tom's reads, as any route they run is liable to change in the middle of the play.
Ocho has been feeling that out all season long. And he is getting better inch by inch.
All this team needs is for him to be a minor factor in the playoffs. He can open up the middle, he can help keep a safety off the LOS.
