I know I am going to get slammed for writing this, but I have never been one to hide my head in the sand with "My team right or wrong".
Before I begin, let me say that it was BS call, especially in overtime. The officials handed the game to the Jets. We may still not have won, but that assured the loss.
Also, Gronk was simply not Gronk. That one handed "almost catch" that would have been a TD, well why did he not even try to bring his left arm up to try to secure it but, instead, left it hanging at his side?
That said, let me get to what is sure to get me slammed.
I have loved what Brady had done all these years. This year he has been, well, ordinary. I know about the new class of receivers and I know about losing Welker and Hernandez, etc. etc. However, I have been looking at his overthrows, his underthrows, his lack of scanning the field, and his interceptions. Don't get me wrong. He is still well into the upper half of the QBs in this league. It is just that, well, he hasn't been a Brady (or a Peyton). He has been inconsistent, at best.
I hope that with the return of Amendola, and Vereen, and Connally that he returns to form. However, I think it may be time to seriously consider starting to groom his replacement, beginning with this years draft. Flashes of billiance simply don't cut it.
OK, sling away at this person who has always put Brady and Peyton as 1-2 with a you pick the order. I am just very frustrated with his performance. I can no longer count on the Brady magic.
