Every season RDM obsesses on the NFL team win total over/unders. It’s one of the more fun bets in all of sports. A single well-placed bet turns an otherwise random team into a must see weekly event. Today we look at the 2012 Miami Dolphins.

The number: 6.5 wins

Chad Ochocinco’s Johnson’s addition to the Dolphins literally makes me want to bet the under. It’s not just the stench of desperation oozing from the act of the Dolphins signing a wide receiver that is clearly on the back 9 that makes me say this. It’s the fact that Miami would sign him, then tell him to be the old “Chad Johnson” that is a bit concerning. Don’t fully concentrate on football like you did in New England. Rather, be the social media maven that you were in Cincy. That’s what the ‘Phins want.

The fact that this is tolerated down there isn’t surprising. In my opinion, this type of management can only hurt a team. This **** matters. A culture of absurdity doesn’t work.

I would think this to be a ridiculous statement. However, after watching this first episode of Hard Knocks, I think it might be true. The Dolphins, as an organization, signed Chad Johnson to produce a more interesting season of Hard Knocks. Sounds ******* impossible. Why would a team care to do such a thing? Because in Miami they are just trying desperately to get any asses in those seats in that old P-O-S stadium.

Maybe the ‘Phins didn’t get a viable wide out in Chad Johnson. BUT, they did get a fantastic PR buff. Chad Johnson is essentially the highest paid social media rep in the NFL.

So they’ve got that going for them.

Cobweb mode. Are we buying this for a second? Chad didn’t have sex from September through January? Really? Nothing? Evelyn Lozada is more demanding than Drew Rosenhaus. Even Rosenhaus gives hand jibbers to under performing players in contract years.

And I leave you with this…

If only Chad had paused FIFA and picked up New England’s playbook last season…

I’ve never rooted against Chad before. However, the fact that Miami thinks letting him run a muck is the way to go makes me have to. It’s like Miami believe that letting Chad post pictures of his Louis Vuitton luggage on Instagram is going to take 5 years off his NFL-worn legs. Maybe Johnson is just getting old, huh. Did anyone think of that? It’s not that the Patriots ripped his heart and soul out by limiting his ridiculous twitter activity. It’s just that he’s a 34-year-old player that has played over 150 regular season games. Like even the best battle in Call Of Duty, everything comes to an end.

On the bright side, Cobweb mode is the best thing I’ve heard in awhile. Chad’s entire game was in cobweb mode in 2011. With all this other media stuff to entertain him now, I can’t see him getting his **** straight on the field. That’s why ole Ocho has that twitter account to fall back on.

The average pay for a social media manager is a lick over $50k. Johnson’s 2012 salary is $925,000.
