    Re: Implications of Gronk not being ready

    At age 36 Brady says he's never felt better and is fully confident in his abilities. The loss of his QB coach who died 15 months ago could impact his throwing mechanics except for the fact that Brady is excited by his replacement. It's Tom House, a retired baseball pitcher who apparently has made a very thorough study of throwing mechanics.

    With Tom House's help Brady has set new goals for throwing. He has been taught that he must strive to throw to targets with an error tolerance of 4" instead of 4 feet. While Dobson is probably capable of finding balls thrown as much as 4 feet off target the new standard should make better receivers from all of our WRs. It should increase productivity when throwing into tight quarters too but, as usual, execution is the key!

    Mechanics/fundamentals are important.  He also needs to remember that it was a team effort when they won 3 superbowls - and that he can't do it by himself. So, mebbe, trying to squeeze one into a 4" opening may NOT be better than the guy who's  wide open.

    I relate mechanics more with throwing bullets and long balls -- not so much touch throws, which I remember he did with more regularity back in the SB years. Sometimes when the QB is so confident with his velocity, he will tend to try and squeeze in those bullets in tight holes instead of throwing the smarter ball. We'll see.

    priceless TFB12!

    Well, preparation is one thing and execution is completely different. 

    Lets assume for a second that Dobson & Boyce see some reps. Best case, they both work out, and can contribute to the offense. IF this is the case, i feel much better about the Pats offense putting up points in Gronk's absence until he is able to play. IF not, what are the options? Danny, Hern and crossing fingers Ballard is healthy and picks up the offense? That's a lot of eggs to put into that bucket. 

    I am not kidding myself on Gronk. A healthy Gronk makes this offense go. He is in my opinion even a larger contributing factor to the success of the Pats offense than Welker. He simply does more and is uncoverable. There is no other offensive player on our team that requires the same attention as Gronk from opposing defenses. 



    You dont mention Amendola? Do people around here really think the guy is chopped liver? Cathcing 80+ passes from whats his name! IF we target him like Welker - and I hope we do distribute more - because the other players are good and getting open... but if we did he would catch 100 passes.

    Do not overlook Amendola. Hope the rest of the league does!
