    RE: Ocho’s “spoon feeding” of the Dolphins offense.

    Better make it a sippy cup, and set your expectations nice and low.

    Stallworth, Branch and Gaffney might not all be able to make the final roster – but teams will be watching them closely, knowing that its likely a Patriots cut could start for another team.

    As far as those three are concerned there’s no better place to showcase their continued abilities than with Tom Brady and the Patriots.

    Why does “Spoon Feeding” say so much about Chad Ocho and his ability to learn anything about running routes…he loves to just play the way HE wants not the way the style is for that team …..over 1.5 yrs and he never got the Pats offense …yet others do…says so much about his non-ability
