FOXBORO (CBS) – For those Patriots fans still feeling bitter towards Chad Johnson (you may remember him as Chad Ochocinco), last night’s episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” did not disappoint.
Watching Miami head coach Joe Philbin react to Chad’s arrest, followed by him ultimately releasing Johnson was compelling television. I did think he could of done that stuff off camera, but he chose to let the world see it.

The interesting item that got lost in the whole drama was, Chad was having trouble picking up the Dolphins offense — just like he had trouble picking up the Patriots offense last season.

I’m not sure if, or when, Chad is going to get picked up, but if he does he has got to get into that playbook. The word is out that he is starting to struggle picking up offenses, and the 12-year veteran may be done in the league.
At least he has his own network, right?
