    Correct.

    .... and last year he played with one of the best quarterbacks in the league and caught like 15 balls.

    Admittedly there are a LOT of intricacies to playing WR for the Patriots. Unlike many NFL playbooks there aren't defined plays, there are defined sets. If the WR sees someone playing press, they run a different route than a mid zone or deep zone. I doubt Ochocinco's the brightest bulb of the batch (given his behavior), so I don't doubt he had issues in learning how to read defenses in that complicated a manner.

    Randy Moss sure figured it out.

    Randy Moss has been heralded by almost every coach and player he's worked with as a great student of the game and extremely involved in team meetings and film review. Ochocinco has not.

    Moss is on a whole 'nother level as a player.

    They'll have to go through the frozen tundra. No chance for the wine and cheese crowd.

    Most improved team of the year : Tennessee Titans w/Jake Locker at qb
    Rookie of Year : RG3
    Biggest Surprise of Year : Terrell Owens catches 10TD passes (or more)
    Biggest Overhyped Bust of Year : Cowboys (we can just ink this in every year)

    The 49ers are winning the Super Bowl in the alternative universe where they drafted Aaron Rodgers instead of Alex Smith.

    The Pack is returning to the Super Bowl this year. I like the Texans in the AFC. They've got all the pieces; it's just a question of whether they can make the leap in one year.

    +1

    Moss and Ochocinco are not remotely comparable. For example - ocho only had double-digit TD catches once (10)... Moss did it 9 times and holds the single season record (23). Ocho had a few good years.... moss is a lock for the HOF.
