I would love to see Ocho doing his thing in Miami BUT this is why it will not happen

"Multiple sources tell the Boston Globe that Chad Ochocinco just didn't have the "football I.Q." to succeed with the Patriots." "The Patriots would literally tell him to run a route a certain way, and a minute later he would run it the other way," wrote the Globe's Greg Bedard. "It happened all the time." During recent OTAs, he also struggled to recognize zone versus man coverage. Even if it irked Carson Palmer, Ochocinco often got away with freelancing as opposed to running the correct route in Cincinnati. That was never going to work in the Patriots' precision timing offense, which relies on receivers to make pre-snap reads and run exactly where Tom Brady expects them to run." By all accounts Philbin's offense is designed to be a perfectly timed high tempo offense that requires ONLY players who can read, diagnosis, and react within seconds. By all accounts Ochocinco has NEVER been able to be that type of player. Again I will go on the record and say I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE HIM AS A DOLPHIN but I feel that his presence would be equal to having another undrafted FA in terms of learning the playbook (and we can all agree Miami already has plenty of those). SAD but TRUE
