I humbly apologize for doing a "I told you so" post, but goodness, this one felt good.
Tom. Brady. Is. Getting. Old.
Sorry. I'm not gonna get a head of myself and say the Pats have fallen yet. I'll do that if we can take the Division away from them this year.
If Bill Bellicheck does not do something to improve that Oline play Brady is not going to survive the season. Miami, Buffalo and the Jets are built behind powerful D-lines. What we saw in Miami may only be act 1 of Brady's downward spiral.
You cannot have a guy that old taking those types of hits week in and week out.
Yeah not saying the Pats are done (far from it), but Brady was a bit off and it wasn't all just because of the D-Line.
But much like with Peyton, you can mask the issue by loading up on YAC WRs.
Of course, the other issue for the Pats (and after settling in this became a huge issue for them) is that with quick shifty guys like Edlemen and Amendola they don't like being played physical and Finnegan/Grimes did that to them. I'm actually shocked more teams don't play physical more with them.
this is making me borderline giddy.
