Especially since DAs return last game didn't turn out too well. Is that what the Patriots can expect from him the rest of the season? It's possible that he is still sub-optimal from his groin injury and may NOT recover this season.
Will Gronk make enough of a difference for the offense as a whole?
Half of Amendolas woes that game can be attributed to the abysmal play of Brady. Granted he wasn't quite as sharp or fast as he was game 1, but Brady whiffed on him a few times. As for Gronk, if he comes back and starts playing like his old self then yes, to answer your question, absolutely. When Gronk isn't going over defenders to grab a ball out of the air (he has a temendous catch radius), dragging or knocking over defenders, being our number 1 red zone threat, he is doing something that we desperately need help with, blocking. And blocking very very well. His very existance out on the field will free up opportunties for other players as well.
WT F is going on in here? Brady whiffed on Him? What does that even mean? I counted 3 drops,. All 3 were right on the money and dropped. Thank you for the big catch before the half so we can kick 3, but cmon, the guy dropped some easy ones. Rust? He has been practicing for a while....No excuses. If we are gonna hold Brady to insane expectations, yes Danny making 6.1 million in place of Wes, needs to make those catches or it makes the wes move much worse as we all agreed that he was everything but clutch so we are supposed to be happy when Danny shows the same signs? I was happy with Danny as a Wes replacement, but we still dont have a # 1 or a TE in this offense and thats a problem. Even when Gronk comes back, how do you run a 2 TE set with no 3rd TE? You usually dont...We are terribly thin at TE after having like 6 in camp...BUT Dallas Clark and Winslow are both healthy and helping our teams each week. Should have signed one of them instead of waiting a year and a half for the Jake the Break Ballard! smh
Board has become one big Brady Bash Party. Sorry I cant partake. Im just taking notes. Hope you all come back and eat crow when TFB shows you he doesnt s*ck next game
It means that honest fans saw Brady throw wildly above Amendolas head where Amendola had to make an incredible catch even if he was WIDE OPEN.
There was one to the strong side on a crossing pattern where Brady AIRMAILED IT and Thompkins was behind Amendola who then tried to dive and catch it.
Amendola is 5'11, he's not 6'5 like Gronk.
Stop making excuses for AWFUL THROWS. If Brady is so great, why is his accuracy, so awful?
Is it because Moss and Gronk, and people like that, bailed him out due to their freakish size and ability, where Brady's gets lax and lazy on his other WRs?????!!
Hmmm? Shizzles? Could it be? Could it be?
Could it be you're sick in the head.
Receivers catch balls. especially starting receivers. That is their job.
It's called doing their job and earning their pay. They are supposed to catch easy passes, hard passes and everything in between. That's why they are out there instead of home on the phone selling snake oil, like you.
Stallworth & Gaffney, even caught balls. Hell, Bug eyes, even caught balls.
So did David Tyree, ( caught one) and Manningham and EVERY SINGLE ONE of Joe Flacco's receivers, in February, last year.
Are you seeing the trend here?
This current pile of fertilizer, is not catching, (CATCH ABLE) balls, unless you count Thompkins catching the ball 3x's for each catch.
Then his catch % would be 3x's what it currently is, about 69%. BWAHAHA
Damn shame they couldn't have been brought along like all the other rookies Wrs, in the NFL.
Shame on you BB.
