In response to FrankDooley's comment:
I wasn't comparing progress of each offense.
In fact, in the other thread about games people were watching today, CrazyWorldofTroyBrown and I were talking about how Moreno scored TWICE from 20 yards out on toss sweeps. How refreshing. How come we don't run a toss sweep with Mankie pulling? Why are we in a race to throw 45 times with a lead. Gomer wasn't today.
With Welker here, Brady would be trying to throw in the red zone underneath over and over, mosty to Welker. Or Gronk.
Do you remember Seattle last year? 5/6 in the red zone. Case closed.
Denver's offense is run better because Gomer is AHEAD Of Brady in terms of being the better game manager at this point of their careers.
That's why BB walked from Welkie and has given Brady no binkies. It's why Branch, Stallworth and Gaffney were given no vet minimum invites here in camp.
Pretty sad that Gomer Manning runs his offense better than Brady now, when freaking Brady invented it in 2001.
You weren't complaining these last few years when Welkie was being targeted as much as Edelman now, Why is that, Prolate?
In fact, you're walking right into my trap.
So let me get this straight. Belichick is taking away all of Brady's "binkies" . . . so he has only Edelman to throw to. That way, rather than just throwing to one receiver named Welker, he can throw to just one receiver named Edelman (who's pretty much the same as Welker, according to you) . . .
End result seems to be an offense that scores 1.5 TDs a game rather than one that scores 3.7 per game as it did in 2012.
Meanwhile, Denver who now has Welker, has an offense that is scoring 5.5 TDs a game, up from 3.1 TDs per game in 2012.
