[QUOTE]Sorry. Not saying he's been ggood or even solid, but Brady missed a wide open #85 in the end zone last night
. Brady's been either average or below average now for 3 weeks. Just admit it, because this constant scapegoating makes you look foolish. Some of the best players ever go into funks, but what's maddening is we throw away half our playbook when the opponent's D isn't even good at stopping the run. Brady has simply got to be better. Lashing out at Ochocinco because you don't get that when you pass 40+ times we lose, is not Ochocinco's fault. call better plays, don't abandon the run, stop making poor throws all the time. If he's hurt, then that's one thing. I am not sure he is. Hard to tell. If he was, wouldn't running it make more sense? If BJGE has turf toe, then let Ridley run with it for a while. Miami took NY to the hilt last week and it's only because they ran the ball on NY. Please explain why Bill O'Brien and Tom Brady, the two main offensive people here who either call in the plays or choose the plays, are in a shotgun in a low scoring game, where methodical playcalling is a benefit, not a detriment. It's SB 42 flashbacks, Jets playoff loss flashbacks, Buffalo, last week, etc. Why does every throw have to be a shotgun drop where he needs 10 seconds? I seriously concede games like this as losses once I see them veer away from the running game. I thought we were ok going into half, but then O'Brien got addicted to the spread/shotgun in the 3rd, which told NY, "here we come, it will be 60% pass from here on out". Why we continue to gamecall right into the opponent's strengths is beyond me.

85 is Bad but we wouldn't even be talking about him if the rest of this offense did their job even close to par. I've said this a number of times- Brady makes 20 mil per because he is supposed to be god and be able to play good for 4 quarters. He didn't do that yesterday and he didn't do it against the Steelers and he didn't do it against Buffalo and he didn't do it against the Cowboys either but we pulled that game out. If Brady can't can't get it done for close to 4 quarters this team has no chance against quality opponents. I'm not cutting any other players any slack for their relative incompetence but Brady is the guy that needs to bail us out and make big plays. Otherwise this team is going nowhere.
He'll be back..He always does.
