In response to joepatsfan111111's comment:
yes, brady has been FAR from Brady this year, but this O-line at times is giving him no help. some drives TB has a ton of time to throw and other drives he is on his azz the whole time.
the O-line needs some consistentcy here or Brady will not improve himself. what i dont get is how the guys the caliber of Solder, Mankins, Wendell, Connolly and Vollmer cant do their job. i understand there are injuries but this needs to be fixed
part of this also is McDaniels and TB getting away from the run. They at times become predictable and D-lines will get the green light to send the house.
if the offense is going to improve, it needs to start with the O-line, then TB will have consistent time to throw and HOPEFULLY he can find his accuracy again and we need too run the ball 20+ times a game no doubt. Ridley 13-16 carries Bolden 5-7 for a good change of pace.
just a thought
This all stems from the receivers.
Do you think they got pathetic over night too?
Brady has always been the fastest at getting rid of the ball.
When a QB goes through his progressions and releases the ball, he already knows where his receivers will be, if they are running their route correctly. The ball should be in the air and thrown to point A with the expectation of the receiver being there. The receivers are not there due to inexperience and probably thinking too much instead of reacting, causing timing issues and ultimately, in-completions. He's probably making sure they are even running the called route before he throws. NOT GOOD He should be worrying about the defense, not his receivers.
Even if this is a half of second, he is a half a second closer to being sacked or hit
27 sacks and 34 hits, in 7 games, says so. At this rate it will be 60/75. pfft
This will not extend his career. Might not even make it out of this year alive
The hesitation is not having confidence that they will be THERE. Hesitations take time. Hesitations also mean harder and less accurate throws to make up for lost time.
The quick release is gone. The line has to hold longer. TB is getting killed.
I can't explain the short sacks with the defenders rushing right through the line but perhaps it's because they are playing back on their heels
As far as creating holes for the backs. They were always aided by good TE's. You saw the decline after Gronk went down, especially in the post season.
This could get better with Gronk back, if he decides to use both hands again.
In other words:
IT'S BB'S FAULT!!!!!
i forgot to add that to my thing. i think its a group effort. the WR suck at times and the o-line at others while TB has been off on throws where he has had time. obviously this all stems from the new WR core and the inexperience and lack of chemistry b/w them. just hopefully Amendola can stay healthy so he can benefit from Gronk's return
