    Is it just me or does Oakland look like they'll be drafting in the top 10 this year?

    I was reading an article about Oakland's camp (yes, Oakland's camp. I was THAT bored) and came upon a bit saying that Chad Jackson had made some great catches.

    I think Oakland's the perfect offense for CJ. Their philosophy is "run around a bit and we'll throw the ball somewhere randomly, and if you happen to catch it, great. Otherwise, we'll just acquire someone even less experienced than you to replace you."

    Oh, it's real all right. Here's a report from camp:

    "Catch of the day goes to Chad Jackson, who while being smothered by Sterling Moore on the sidelines, leapt up over Moore and caught what appeared to be an uncatchable ball. Moore stands at 5-10, while Jackson is 6-1, but by the time the ball hit Jackson’s hands, his jersey numbers had enough clearance over Moore’s head to see them in full."

    Oh Shoot. I hope we can stop a 228 LB DE, with 0 career sacks. :) He won't make their team, although I hope he does. That would mean he's taking a spot from another player.

    You know that Danny Woodhead is just praying that Maybin is the blitzer he's assigned to block

    Al likes speed guys, though maybe he's starting to wise up to $$$ spent on them (nah, even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then :) )

    The pats offense isn't for every receiver and his expectations are going to be so low, he can only exceed them.

    Good luck to him. I think this thread is going over my head. What am I missing?

    Surprised to see Oakland had "to come to terms" with Chad. At this point, I would expect Chad to take anything he can get.

    Do we really want to take credit for developing him?

    Well Al wants him..... :D

    Besides we only have 2 2nds in the next draft we need another we can trade back to Al for his 2013 1st.

    Good for Chad. He never did much here, but I'm glad to see he is getting a chance somewhere. Hope me makes the best of it, and at least earns some money.

    I truly believe Chad struggled because the complicated - read and react - route adjustments used in this offense were simply over his head. It's not the right scheme for him. Never will be. After NE rightfully cut him, he was then picked up by McDaniels -- rinse and repeat.

    If you put Chad on a team like Indy or even Cincy - where the emphasis is on vertical route running with timing and precision (rather that complicated option routes) then I believe you might have something.

    Oakland is so bad that virtually no player in need of a second chance will have room to flourish. Certainly not C-Jack.

    EDIT - My biggest concern for Ochocinco is that he too will not be able to grasp this offense. I think it benefits smaller and shiftier guys like Welker, Branch, or Brown - because the coverage dictates their route. They aren't held back, like they might be in another offense, because of a lack of speed or timing or precise route running skills. The route isn't fixed, so you can't just dominate based on some good moves or finesse - like so many receivers do.

    Given some of the moves we have seen i was starting to wonder if there really was such a thing as "cap hell." Now i know it actually exists.

    shoot - why did I even read this thread? It has just reminded me NEP traded up to get C-jack , when we could have stood pat and taken Jennings instead(GB). :mad:

    You've got to think that someone like Belichick, who clearly gets along with and respects Ochocinco, would have a good sense if he'd fit into the offensive scheme, and wouldn't bring him in just for the sake of bringing him in.
