In response to stan17's comment:
I thought you were a little hard on TB. Lloyd needs to run that route through that one wasn't all on TB. Devin's play was very average but the worst play by the secondary was Arrington getting beat badly on a 4th & 10, that can't happen against subpar passing team. TB I thought deserved an A-, the secondary a C+.
Sorry...not buying that Lloyd didn't run his pattern right. Brady made a poor throw...pure and simple.
Yeah I'm kind of in the minority here, but I agree with you. If a guy is open by twenty yards...all you have to do is get it within 5 yards to the sides or front/back of him for a completion...he didn't. He's still the best QB in the league and made more than enough plays on his way to a 117 QB rating Sunday, but he missed that one. Lloyd also bailed him out a bit on that sideline pass...it looked like it was a little too ahead of him, but he made a heck of a catch. I can see the two of them hooking up for 80-100 catches this year.
interesting several of you here are aslo pointing out what i saw. now i was watchign on streaming and it was very crappy, even so, i saw the lloyd td throw that brady threw the ball behind lloyd. when you are running in one direction (trajectory) and the ball is in another, its near impossible to shift and make that happen. a i said in the game thread, humins are not hummingbirds.
on the game thread everyone who responded disagreed with victriol, outrage and disparagement (well one didnt go into attack mode).
i also note on several sports shows the evaluation of that play was given the same conclusion, the ball was in a different direction than lloyd was running (ie behind him).
again, only saw it once, adn crappy qulaity, but if i saw it right, if you ever played wr you know what im talking about. its near impossible to change trajectory of your run, expecially a trajectoury behind you.
i also noted as several of yo do here, that several of bradys throws were aberrent, especially low. and what i picked up was that he had a case of teh yips (nervousness0 during that period of the game). he looked that way as well. till later he seemed to calm down.
those who translate what is not said into something to rail against, i did not say that brady had a bad game, or anything of the sort.
just a comment on teh firt lloyd throw and seveal short balls.
great game all around.
id still like to pick up a fa starting cb for the playoff run (to have a better chance against elite passers/receiver combos-er even aginst good ones). someone better than those we have now (a la finnegan picked up in fa last year).
