In response to rkarp's comment:
I thought TB played very well and very much as expected Sunday. He was lights out, the best QB in football throwing to Amendola and Julian. He was indecisive and looking for something that simply wasnt there throwing to the rookies. This will improve, and TB will find a comfort level with the new guys...
But will someone explain to me....why cant this guy run for 5 yards? He clearly sees the entire field and sees the open space. He is 6'5" and 240 lbs. He needs 3 strides to cover 5 yards. It appears he sees the opening, wants to run, starts to run, and then changes his mind? No one is asking for pistol or read and run. But if Brady could have run for 15 yards total between 3-5 attempts (seemed like 40-50 were there for the taking) the outcome would have been settled a lot sooner. and for crying out loud, SLIDE!
It's been driving me nuts for years. It's cost us games. SBs.
Seriously. He's so hesitant, he barely ever does it when it's right there for the taking.
He did it on Sunday, which was great, but he was so hesitant, it looked like he had cement shoes on.
I don't see it improving at this point. It's one of his flaws.
What do you want another torn ACL and have to watch our 'future' Mallet take the team? no. roll out and buy more time for WRs to get open dont risk your health over 5 yards
