Those are the season totals.
Bolden about 5.4
Brady's passer rating is below 80. He's underthrowing everything. Only 8 tds and 5 picks. Through 7 games. That's depressing considering how much they are forcing the pass.
What is justifying this continued imbalance?
If the pass was working better. OR, the run was working worse, I could understand.
Pass isn't working? Pass some more.
Run IS working? Try some passes!
The D is suffering because of it. They've been playing absolutely balls out, incredible football. And a 30 gets hung on them because they run 22 passes and 4 runs over the final quarter and OT in addition to puting 7 directly on the board for the Jets.
I guaranfuckingtee the OLine would LOVE to get some running game going. No question. None. Every offensive lineman on the planet prefers run blocking to pass protection. Every single one.
They're going to run the D into the ground (yes, even more) and/or get Brady killed with this absurdity.
Speaking of...is Brady to blame for any of this? Partly. But he's the QB. McDaniels runs the offense, if it isn't working, it's on him to fix it. Brady. like every QB in history post 1970 has a big ego, and probably genuinely believes he could pass 100% of the time and win. It's that confidence that makes players great, it's up to the coaches to harness it and not get sucked in like motherfking fanboys. Don't expect Brady to audible 10 times in a game to a run because the D is giving it to him. Won't happen. It's nice to think it would, but no QB is sacrificing control that often. A handful, sure. Not consistenly all game, regardless of what's happening. It's on the OC to do HIS job, and beat the guy across the field. McDaniels sucks at chess.
Agree. The D has been awesome and thought they played hard today, but were left out to dry by our offense unabel to do anything in the second half. It was like SB 46 in that way.
Cincy game was just like this one. Mostly on Brady where it affects our D having to continue to be back on the field so frequently.
Just give it up, hater.
The O sucked, the D sucked, the coaching SUCKED.
Period! NO DEBATE!
The D DID NOT suck, and special teams were pretty good minus the bonehead play of the year. 2/3 of BB's thirds of football were played very well by the Pats. The Offense, again, was awful. They only put 20 points on the board.
THe end of last week probably intensified the problems and made Jiminy Cricket McDaniels proof that passing IS the way to win.
Final 26 plays of the game they ran consisted of 22 passes. At no point were they losing by more than 6, time was never a factor, and they were even TIED at one point...and didn't run the ball. I mean, those 4 runs only netted 26 yards, I can understand the wholesale abandonment.
