    Just to note:

    15 receptions all season long
    2 weeks to work on specific plays and packages
    1 WR alternative cut loose
    0.5 over/under on catches, per Vegas


    It won't take much to be a breakout game. Have at it, folks..... :)

    If he catches a pass it will be a big game for him.
    The only real fact that leads me to believe there is a chance that he will even be noticable is that he was targetted 5 times vs the Giants, so there could be something in what they do that makes him a good option.

    I can't wait for the game to be over so I can stop reading stuff like this.

    And it's Ochocinco. He legally changed his name to that. Do you still call Mohammed Ali, Cassius Clay?

    If the Giants play a lot of cover 1, I expect Ochosucko could have some balls thrown his way, because he can still get open.

    1.) I set up the thread as a lark, and because someone else would eventually have set one up.

    2.) If you want to call him Ochocinco, go ahead. I'll call him Chad Johnson. I assume you don't call anyone by their nicknames, of course, since those aren't legal.

    If I legally changed my name to "oldskool138", I'd expect you to call me that instead of the name I changed it from.

    The Giants werent repsecting the deep outside routes when we played them last time, I guess they were trying to loosen things up a bit, wouldnt be surprised if they see the same coverages to do it again, hopefully Chad and Tom can connect on one long one, thats all it would take,

    I agree with this thread.

    Ocho will break out. He might have a catch that moves the chains.

    Once.

    The "why" doesn't matter. It's the fact that his legal name is whatever he changed it to.

    He got some mileage out of those catches 276yds 18.4YA. I believe they were all 10yds or longer. Can't recall 3-7 yarders.

    looking at the averages 1 ocho catch = at least 1 10+ yard 1st down:rocker:

    Well, one thing is for sure........ If he doesn't break out this week, I think we can officially give up on him for the year. ;)

    He doesn't have to have a "breakout game." One big gainer would be more than fine by me.

    I also could see Brady going to him deep early on to put the idea in the Giants' head and stretch the field a bit for the day.

    The why doesn't matter to you. Your choice

    Moss is reportedly going to provide updates from the Patriots hotel (per 98.5). Sadly, that'll rule him out as an active player. :(

    I don't think so. I think he expected to be a big producer AND have a shot at a title.

    It matter because legally changing you name is a deeply personal thing and other people should respect that even if you feel the reason or name the person changed it to is silly.

    Try to get a grasp on this: I understand your position, but I don't hold with it and I don't really give a damn how deeply personal (or not) this type of name change is. You are welcome to call Chad Johnson whatever the hell you want to. I'll call him Chad Johnson. I'm one person taking a deeply personal stand against the stupidity of naming one's self a number.

    I'm not ready for a "big game" but I do believe he could be targeted more in this game because of a few factors.

    He is still capable of beating man coverage.
    Gronk's ankle could dictate the outside seeing more balls.
    He will be singled up 100% of the time due to his ineffectiveness this season
    The infamous new BB wrinkle that is sure to show it's head on both sides of the ball in some facet.
    We can run on the Giants and I believe a safety will come down for run support.
    The giants will focus heavily on the middle of the field on passing downs.

    I think Ocho will have an opportunity to help this team. I could see him getting 4-6 grabs some being for 1st downs. I am not predicting any TD's and I don't think he breaks 100 yds.

    Comparing Chad changing his name to Ochocinco to Cassius Clay becoming Muhammad Ali is pretty ridiculous and shows your fundamental ignorance of Islam.
