14.)Brady will be Brady. His gratuitous dropping of the F-bomb may have indicated he wasn’t happy with the result @GB last week; a game in which he was out gunned by Aaron Rodgers. He’ll look to bounce back against a softer SD defense, but will have to do so with question marks at 3 of his top passing targets (LaFell, Edelman, Vereen).
7.)Tom Brady (99.7%) = Looks really good against the AFC East
6.)Tom Brady (98%) = Tell him he’s washed up and he’ll put up the #s. He remembered how to crush his division opponents (again).
4.)Points = 4
- Benched in the 4th. When does that ever happen?
- Is he done or can he turn it back around to post big numbers once again?
- So far this year, I think Brady isn’t even a backup in this league (player rank = 27 before his worst showing of the year in week 4)
The Tom Brady issue isn’t an easy one to unravel. He hasn’t been the same QB since his WR shakeup in 2013. The return of Gronk should have fixed all that ails the NE offence this year, but Brady has yet to push the ball down the field for big plays. Who is to blame? Is it play calling, receiver talent, or simply a problem in between the ears? Whatever the case may be, the results are telling. Don’t start Brady any time soon.
The New England Patriots, let’s face it, they’re not good anymore!!
