    Actually as improbable as it may seem, maybe this WILL be the day Ocho comes out to play. Mangini made a very interesting point today on Mike and Mike. He said the Giants have given Brady trouble because they squeeze the middle and play the short routes tough and physical. However that leave the Pats outside receivers opportunities deep.

    Ocho is much stronger than Branch and a more physical receiver. Maybe for this game they put him on the field to run just 3 routes. Slant - Slant and go - double move deep routes. No reading, no confusion, just those 3 routes to take advantage of the Giants defensive philosophy.

    It makes sense - He doesn't replace Branch, just takes some snaps with the regular 2 WR offense.

    actually I agree with you. Use Ocho as I stated above and as the 5th WR in spread offenses, and have Edelman concentrate exclusively as a DB for the next 2 weeks. He isn't perfect, but he does fairly well in coverage, and is one of the better tacklers among the DBs, and for this game good tackling is key.

    Definitely use him on that day. He should get one of the prime spots. Always use a player in such a way to take advanage of his strengths.

    This makes sense. Cue Mo and the other Ocho haters.

    Pick One:
    1. His last day in a Patriot uniform?
    2. The day he finally puts it together
    3. Another day just like the last 17 weeks. Maybe he'll figure it out in the offseason.

    I don't think 3 is an issue any longer. I think his lack of production comes in large part because whenever he is on the field he is going to be the 5th option, after Gronk, Welker, Hernandez, and Branch. How many balls does the 5th option usually get in a game. Not many. Its not like Edelman comes on the field and does any better. Not because he suck, but because he's simply the 5th option

    As strange as this sounds, I think Ochocinco played his best game of the season against the Giants (even though he didn't register a catch).

    Good call. One aspect that we fans may tend to overlook is that Ocho doesn't have big cames BECAUSE WE DON'T NEED HIM TO. We have other better options to do the heavy lifting. That was not the case with Ocho's previous teams.

    In all honestly...I think Ocho could be a great weapon for the Big Game. I say have him line up...take advantage of him on a long pass play IF he is open. This should help stretch the field and keep the defense on their toes even if he doesn't get another ball the entire game. He helps open the middle of the field a bit more and if the giants still aren't too concerned with him after that then just keep feeding him the ball. I admit my football knowledge is not as strong as 99% of posters here, but as an fan and long time Pats fan this is what I can see happening. If he is seen as a deep threat that he could be in the game maybe he forces NY to make some half time adjustments and possibly even start to double him up leaving our other weapons (Wes, Gronkowski, Hernadez, BJGE and even branch) in more favorable coverage situations. My 2 pennies.:cool:
