In response to russgriswold's comment:
Didn't (and won't) even click on it, but you enjoy deflecting or ignoring Brady's subpar play as our QB. You can't change facts and history.
I still have no idea why people here are so hellbent and trying to change my opinion on this topic, especically with a reasoned and well sourced analysis on it.
It's QB offensive league and the less amount of accountability or analysis goes to our QB at 15mil per?
How does that make sense? Basking in laurels for Brady from a decade ago won't work either. If he wants to look at past laurels or regular season stats, then maybe he should just retire.
I don't think he fails to keep the hunger to play on and play well, but let's just call the spade and spade and move on already.
Some of you can't even get to step 1 which is admitting it. The day BB turned from Welker should have been the final signal to any PAts fan what BB is doing here.
Another fact of the game and an egregiously telling statistic: A primary objective of a DC during their week long prep for the opposing team's offense is to identify their tendencies in order to be tipped off during pre snap reads on the play selection. The fact that over the last two season, Wes Welker is one of only 2 NFL receivers (the other being Calvin Johnson) to be in the league top 5 in QB targets is a critical flaw and giveaway in our offensive attack especially during crunch time execution.
In crunch time game situations, Teams tend to go to their "bread and butter" (Can you say "tendancy") in those situations, and based on an clear conclusion drawn by a very easy analysis of the Pats' tendencies to look for Wes, we've crippled any form of surprise and have had little success at the most critical moments of the season. For many reasons and for the better, we are seeing change. Predictability is a killer in the highly sophisticated world of NFL defenses today.
Hence the problem with the post Charlie Weiss offense. McD stumbled upon the the spread after our BRILLIANT GM(btw what is worse? Babe saying BB doesn't deserve credit for the dynasty he built or Rusty blaming Brady for losses in the post season?) BB recognized the future talent of WW and the life left in Randy Moss and we saw that Brady's talent level had no ceiling.
With real weapons at his disposal, he broke records. In short he lit a fire under the leagues - - - Since then our coaching/front office staff(diminished by departures of Weiss, Crennel, Mangini, McD, Daboll, Pioli) has done little to help Brady in his quest for a 4rth SB. We have ran the same offense with the same % of passes to throws, out of the same sets(3 receiver with Moss/2 TE after Moss) for the last 5 years. It is difficult for the average fan to look at this offense as flawed as it regularly scores 33 ppg in the regular season, but as we see it struggle against post season defense's we realize this pass heavy offense fails to keep a defense from being ready for the play.They know what we will do and have consistently kept us from doing it.
BB has kept us a contender but he lost valuable trusted people on his staff which had helped him win championships.
Now, Rusty you would blame our teams struggles on Brady which is a lazy answer and is the result of him backing himself into a corner against his regular detractors. Babe blames our recent post season struggles on the defense and says BB inherited his good teams. We all know that is the only premise dumber then Rusty's.
We have already shown Babe that BB brought in guys like Brady,Seymour,Light,Wilfork,Ted Washington,Mike Vrabel,Rhoman Phifer,Bryon Cox,Jarvis Green,Rodney F-ING HARRISON,Colvin,Asante Samuel, Bobby Hamilton,Branch,Givens,Graham,Antwoin Smith, and Corey Dillion in order to assist with his great but underachieving core(till BB coached them) of Bru,Willie,Law,Milloy,andTed Johnson.
I mean only a guy with a trolls agenda would ever try to say BB inherited anything...
Anyway sorry I got distracted. To the point, I would say coaching has been mainly responsible for the lack of variety in the play calling(falling back on the Brady crutch) and probably for the lack of development on defense in the rebuild. I mean BB molded his coaching staff from the start, but has basically turned over every aspect twice but the O-line. I think this year the coaching staff has continuity as do the defensive players and O-line.
We will be an offense that will take whatever you give them and a defense that is near the top in turnovers and top 10 in ppg allowed. That is a recipe for success imo.
