you cant tell me he didnt totally miss edelman there?
now that game was lost because our defense couldnt get off the field but that pass missed and changed alot
He threw it to a spot and it was slightly beyond Edleman who didn't take the greatest angle. If Edleman catches it then what. The Pats have 3 more points, maybe 7. They lost by more than that.
It was happening all year.
I am not as critical of Brady as you but his problems hitting deep shots are well known and actually is a huge factor in game planning against the Patriots.
From what I have seen in most of the big playoff losses the other team is agressive against the first ten yard dink and dunks and out to 20 yards in 3rd down situations and dares the Pats to go long. Seen too many of these games where the only way the Patriots are getting space to run the offense is to hit some of these longer passes. Too many times theese have been close but no connection on these, like the Edleman one we are talking about here. In reality these guys usually get open but are not hit.
In these situations they are being given the long ball quite a bit. Think getting some bigger recievers that can go up and get the ball if it is not perfect will help this team tons. Brady continuing to work on these and get some sucess going long will hopefully do this.
