08:10 AM ET 11.12 | You know the panic button is being pounded when among the targets for ire is Tom Brady. TB12 has been picked on lately for his penchant for getting picked off. The 10 interceptions he's tossed this season put him on pace to eclipse his career high of 14. If you want to critique Brady, don't fixate on interceptions, focus on failing to establish connections. The Patriots' fate on Sunday at MetLife Stadium and this season is ultimately going to be tied to Brady's ability to build a rapport with Chad Ochocinco and/or Taylor Price, even if it's kicking and screaming. He is going to have to widen his circle of trust or watch defenses continue to close in around him.

Maybe TB12 would prefer to build rapport with receivers that don't suck.

Yeah, the Patriots problem is they don't use Chad OchoStinko enough...



<that was pretty sarcastic for this early>

Watching Ocho reminds me of watching Roy Williams in Dallas. Neither had/have a clue.

A bit unnerving that Rex and the rest of his gang haven't been as talkative as usual this week. Hmmm.....

They could send him out for pizza, now that Fat Albert isn't around to eat it all.

But he'd probably have trouble with that route, too.

Then go out and get TB12 another receiver besides Welker.

Hey, didn't they sign that Ocho Cinco guy for something?

This week he dealt with Fat Albert. Next week hopefully he deals with Stinko.

If the Pats tweeted the gameplan to Ocho, he might actually pay attention to that.

I have to agree with Mr Steeler when he says Bill signed Haynesworth and Ocho because he lost a bet. I had thought it was more punishment for Spygate but, I'm going with lost a bet...probably made with Goodell.

The question is who does he get to replace Ocho? We must have SOMEONE on the practice squad who can step up. I hope.
