[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jared Allen : I would say that if two draft picks were given up for Ochostinko he should be averaging more than three catches every two games, especially given the fact that this is a passing league now. Wasn't Ron Sellers an AFL All Star with something like 29 catches in 1969? Do, nine catches in six games would be good. Not anymore, Jose.

So who do you take the catches from? Who gets less so Chad gets more? Do you replace WW or Branch in 2TE 2 WR formation which is the main formation they are using through out the game?
Does he become the 1st read outside with a CB low and safety over top when WW or a TE is open in the middle? I mean he's not andre johnson or Megatron but they also don't have all the weapons the pats do and working as well as they are. Not saying I'm 100% with Chad's production but the TEAM remember that "team first" is one of the top 3 Os in the league.
So again, who do you take out so Chad can make you and others happy in NE? Again, child please look at the whole picture, look at coverages when he's in the game. Yes I was pist off when he dropped that pass but I believe you don't win or loss a game in one play, it was a big part of it but a 100 plays in a game there are other places that cost you a score/1st down ect.
Just saying, right now he's in a situation where the formations and game plan dictate for WW, Branch, Gronk and Herc to be the guys. I gives a damn who's on the field because and catching the ball as long as they are winning.
As far as for the 2 draft picks, what were they? Do they really hurt the team? Can the Pats really not get away without a 5th rnd? when you know with all the talent on the team ect those picks probably don't make the team. Also with all the trading, BB can get a 5th rndr back on draft day fairly easily.
Enjoy the team wins man, don't let Ocho's lack of "production" get you all bent out of shape. If he's a decoy then I'm happy he's not complaining about it. Happy he's still motivated to learn from Brady and improve.
