    He went from a bunch of vets on offense (Edelman, Gronk, Hogan, Allen) to Edelman + a bunch of inexperienced and/or new guys (Meyers, Sanu, Harry, Lacosse) and then had one of the top LTs and centers in the league last year (Brown and Andrews), to a bottom 3 LT (Newhouse) and ordinary, first-year center (Karras). Michel has also underperformed relative to his draft status, although that's in-part due to the OL, blocking TEs I've mentioned, plus Devlin on IR.

    "As much as I absolutely hate to say it, Brady has not been playing well this year."

    Why is it I'm skeptical of that statement?
    I don't believe for an instant you "hate" saying it.

    There have been times when the defender has gone around Newhouse without him getting so much as a finger on the guy. That's just ridiculous.

    First post. But let’s look at facts:

    1. Starting C : out for year
    2. Starting FB: out for year
    3. Starting LT: missed 8/9 weeks
    4. HOF TE from last year retired
    5. Best WR is a slot receiver

    So yeah, offense was going to take a step back, no matter how good TB plays. obviously these factors are greatly impacting TB productivity

    Except, AB didn't have to go. He's right to be upset.

    You're right. If Brady was playing well we'd be smashing it this season. Instead we're 9-1.

    Excellent point - but can an NFL championship team still get away with that 16 years later?

    Time will tell, we shall see over the next 11 weeks.

    Myers couldn't even run his route properly. How is he going to go no huddle?

    Harry............ he's probably still learning the playbook.

    And Gunner.......... nm he's gone.

    3b. Replacement LT was a disaster.

    I disagree, AB had to go but either way, this has gone beyond a reasonable period into hissy territory. To quote a great man, it is what it is.

    I guess you'll have an apoplectic fit once AB returns.

    i think so. The OP is blaming Brady for the offense not firing all cylinders and I responded by saying we are missing talent because of injuries but the team is still battling every game. So it’s not like there’s a lack of effort and aside from players returning from injuries, it’s hard to expect more from a team that is 9-1.

    Brady is fine. It’s the O-line that has turned him into a contestant for “Dancing with the Stars”. Anybody that has played QB knows how distracting it is to think about someone in your face which forces you to take your off of your receivers.

    Bad O-line play doesn’t allow plays to develop which is why you see Brady throw the ball in the dirt. I joke about him doing this but this why.

    The WR’s aside from Edelman and occasionally Dorsett can’t get open on a consistent basis. AB is a rare talent and can get open off the snap. That game in Miami where he was leaving dudes in that dust was a huge tease to Brady.

    Sanu is a veteran that can help but don’t expect him to be a #1 type WR. He’s decent at best.

    Harry will eventually get more looks.

    He looked off last game for sure. As for the rest I’m not sure. I think the problems with the offense aren’t allowing him to succeed.

    Take last years offense and subtract the great running game... and the best linemen... and Gronk...and make your top receiver a year older.

    What’s a left is a seriously lacking offense.
