In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:
Yes, Rusty, in 2011 Brees had 7 targets who were good, on average, for at least two receptions a game (meachem was one of those seven). Brady had only four such receivers. It was part of my whole argument that the Pats needed more diverse recievers. Does anyone seriously question that argument now? You hated it back then too, but as usual, I was right and you were wrong.
Now go back to telling us how Brady is the sole problem with the team.
1. Brees didn't ignore Meachem like Brady did Ocho.
2. Hernandez was used more as a WR than a TE.
We also use RBs as pass receivers like a Vereen.
The fact of the matter is, Brees doesn't stand in a shotgun for 90% of his pass attempts, throw 60+% of the time and ignore other elements of the game.
Our TEs in 2011 and those targets blew away anything Brees had at TE in 2011.
So, don't cherrypick. It's targets, not speficially WR or TE.
Brady pouting or you pouting that he got a Cadillac for XMas instead of a Mercedes is pathetic and a desperate attempt to deflect from what the real problem is. And, it ain't talent around Brady in recent years.
You literally said "it's like he's been relegated to having one hand tied behind his back".
99% of NFL fanbases would think you are a LUNATIC stating that. Fans drooled over the 3 headed monster of Gronk, Welker and Hern. These aren't "versatile"?
Gee, Branch was always considered "verstaile" before, why not in 2011?
Ochocinco had no issues being "versatile" in Cincy before coming here? What happened?
I'll give ya a hint: BB sat down with Tommy Boy this offseason and said "we're making some changes".
Welker was one.
This is about chaning Brady and how he works the field. You have fans on here babbling about he's being treated unfairly like little girls, but this is by design. BB gave Brady all kinds of talent so he could complete easy passses to the EASIEST parts of the field.
Brady failed with what he wanted.
Yep, Ochio and Branch were awesome in 2011, it was just Brady that sucked.
I just don't know what this board would do without this information.
I love the part about Belichick making it "easy" for Brady by giving him short field targets then taking those targets away when Brady uses them. Rusty is really quite entertaining. He defines comedy of the absurd . . .
