Default Re: Patriots Release Chad Ochocinco

Ochocinco lacked football IQ of compatriots

08:04 AM ET 06.08 | Chad Ochocinco is out, while Jabar Gaffney, Donte Stallworth, Deion Branch remain as potential Tom Brady targets. [Gaffney, Stallworth and Branch are all] 30-something, but they all have Brady's trust, get to the places they're supposed to be, and don't have to be told where to go, which was still happening during this season's OTA workouts for Ochocinco. On at least one occasion, Branch still had to point him to the right spot. Even newcomer Brandon Lloyd seems to be in more sync with Brady than Ochocinco ever was. ... He didn't have the kind of football intelligence you need to adjust to all that goes on with the Patriots offense, then read the defense, and be where Brady expects you to be. He just never got it.

Makes him perfect for an NFL Network analyst.

All generalizations are dangerous.
