Could TFB poor play be because he lost Tom Martinez?

I totally understand that he has new receivers, lots of dropped balls and many injuries to deal with however, TFB has not looked the same this year.
Usually you see decisive actions, accurate throws, taking advantage of what the D gives him and this year it just seems off.
Some of course is due to poor execution and changing cast and Oline play. But I wonder, if some of it might be the way TFB prepares, adjusts, feels confident, is focused. It has always been said that TFB is better at all of these things than other QB's but it takes support and system to make all this possible.
Tom Martinez was with Brady since he was a kid. He knew him, he understood him and he knew how to help Tom overcome physical and mental issues that are the difference between excelling, being good, average or below average. Losing him must change things for TFB and maybe this is the difference we are seeing with TFB this year.
All the changes have TFB too much in his head and not on reacting and performing. Losing recievers, losing your mentor, aging, and having players around you that you do not trust 100% lead to poor performance.
Not making an excuse, just wondering if all of this is just too much and if TFB will work through all this and become the TFB of old.
I believe and hope that he does and if he does, he really is the GOAT at QB....
