In Response to Re: OCHO tweets
[QUOTE]The source would be me watching OB take people like BJGE off the field on Sunday after dominating in the game. Similarly, I see Chad Johnson score a TD in Denver on the opening drive, never to be seen again with Branch deactivated that day. O'Brien is leaving for PSU for a reason. He's not NFL level material. Thats' my source. The only complaint here is Brady staring down his WRs and TEs who have spoiled him and Ochocinco's salary is too large for his production, albeit not his fault because we're too busy running a finesse shotgun spread base. Finally, you defending Brady for choosing to stare down Welkeer or Gronk over and over as a good ting with proof of INTS galore when he does that, is rather odd
. NE lost 2 games this year for that very reason (Buffalo and Giants). He lazily stared down Slater deep on Sunday with literally 2 receivers wide open underneath. It's been a problem all year, likely because Brady controls O'Brien, O'Brien and he don't really get along, and it will be a disaster if their ego clash ruins a shot at a SB. O'Brien won the battle last year when Moss was dealt, controlled Brady, and Brady was outstanding not audibiling off what O'Brien wanted. This year? Not so much.

That's not it at all. My point is that we know Brady has cut-off 85 for the fact that he is willing to pass into double coverage to Edleman, rather than pass to that over-paid, under-perfomring prima donna WR who refuses to run the play, refuses to run the clean route, and gets open by freelancing despite this being a timing-offense. Brady is punishing 85 for being a rebel receiver who could poison the well, and Brady is right.
As for Gaffney, I don't think he was the GOAT, I just think the Pats got good value from him and he made some amazing clutch catches. He performed well to expectation, with the occassional pleasant surprise.
Chad has had just a few really good plays and one freakin' TD all season for 5.75 mill. He is a bust, a bust because he refused to play the game the Patriot way. He talked the talk, sure. He never walked the walk. Period.
BTW, I have often criticized Brady this year and in the past for the very play you mention, passing to a double-covered receiver downfield, instead of going to the open second or third read. It is how the Pats lost the last SB. Don't put words in my figurative mouth.
