Nice Try: Chad Ochocinco a Big Dud For the Patriots

It worked with Corey Dillon. It worked with Randy Moss.

Chad Ochocinco To Appear on “Blue Mountain State” Season Premiere

He’s seemingly done it all and has become more of a brand than an actual human being. He’s already known as somewhat of a television personality ever since his reality dating show and the TOcho show.

Former Patriots Harrison, Bruschi Rip WR Chad Ochocinco

In a game that featured a 517 yard passing attack, Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco contributed to only 14 of those yards with one catch Monday night against the Dolphins.

The 2-1 New England Patriots will finish their preseason Thursday night at Gillette against the 2-0 New York Giants. It will be the seventh consecutive Patriots preseason concluded with the Giants.

Tonight: Pats Starters to Test Chemistry Against Tampa Bay

The message from Patriots fans is clear – after watching the Pats crush the Jaguars in the preseason opener, the Foxborough faithful have seen enough of the third string.  Fans want to see the starters, including recent big name acquisitions such as Albert Haynesworth and Chad Ochocinco. Even Tom Brady was surprised that he rode […]

How will Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth Turn Out in Foxborough?

The recent news of the Patriots trading for Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth was first greeted by surprise, and then cynicism. After all, this was the guy who spent two years in Washington failing conditioning tests, demanding more money (getting it), deciding he didn’t really want to play, and all-around making Mike Shanahan’s life miserable. It […]

Chad Ochocinco ‘In Heaven’ with Patriots, But Would Pay Anything For No. 85

UPDATE (3:30 p.m.) – It appears that Ochocinco now has No. 85, as multiple outlets reported he was sporting a No. 85 shirt at practice on Friday. Hernandez was seen with No. 81 shorts on — he wore No. 81 in college, but Randy Moss (a former No. 81) had that jersey when Hernandez was […]

Did Chad Ochocinco Trade Himself To The Patriots In Madden?

Chad Ochocinco and Bill Belichick have long had a fondness for one another, and there have been whispers that the enigmatic Bengals wide receiver would welcome a trade to the Patriots.

Chad Ochocinco Interested in Joining the Patriots?

Two days after the 28-21 debacle by the New York Jets, the Patriots have turned their focus to the 2011-2012 season. One area of need is the wide receiver position.
