Chad Ochocino isn't your run-of-the-mill superstar. The newest member of the Patriots said he expects criticism and even enjoys it.

“I like that. You guys have a job to do. You're not my friends, you guys have a job to do and I understand that," Ochocinco told WBZ Boston.

"I want you guys to critique the hell of me, as I can also do to you," he said. "I hold no grudges, but as you fire upon me, believe, I will fire back. ... High profile, flashy, flamboyant players coming in, [you're] supposed to come in a certain way, point blank. There is no room. I understand that. I know you're all going to kill me, especially here. Boston loves their sports. If I’m [expletive] up, you’re going to get me."

Some insiders are claiming that Ocho doesn't understand coach Bill Belichick's complex playback, but he doesn't agree.

"I've heard small little rumblings that I haven't caught on yet," Ochocinco told reporters Tuesday. "I'm doing just fine. I'm not sure why or how it is, but coming from any place where you've been 10 years, to come here and learn the verbiage and learn as much as I have the past three weeks, I've done extremely well. It's been fun, it's been enjoyable."

Ocho has just two receptions for 14 yards and a touchdown in limited playing time in his first Patriots preseason. Despite poor results on the field, Chad said he doesn't care about what fans think, because he knows he stinks right now.

"I'm just nowhere near where I want to be," he added. "I'm my biggest critic anyway. Regardless of what you write or what you guys see, I'm the first to judge myself. I'm always aiming for perfection. One of those things about being here, in an organization like this that prides itself on perfection and excellence, I'm sort of putting the pressure on myself to be right and be perfect now. Not later. I'm trying to squeeze everything within a shorter time frame. If I can aim to be as perfect as possible, I think I'll get up to speed."
