Patriots vs. Dolphins: Does Tom Brady Even Need Chad Ochocinco?

Tom Brady had 517 passing yards against the Dolphins. A New England Patriots record. A Monday Night Football Record.

Chad Ochocinco had 14 receiving yards in that offensive explosion in Miami last night. Tom Brady threw the ball 48 times last night, and Ochocinco was on the receiving end of that pass three times. Only once did he come up with a reception.

Ochocinco coming to New England might have been one of the biggest moves of the offseason. If last night is a predictor of the rest of the season, it won't even register as a minor move when things are said and done.

Ochocinco was going to make the Patriots more explosive. Looks like the Patriots have more than enough explosiveness already. He might be expendable, even at this early juncture of the season.
