Re: What a way to waste Brady's talent

In response to nomadfan's comment:
Manning had wide receivers like Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Pierrie Garcon, Austin Collie. Al can stretch the field plenty well.
In TE, he had Dallas Clark, Pro-Bowl TE like Pollard and Kilger. They might not be Gronk, but they were consistently productive.
Edgerinn James had over 50 receptions out of backfield in every season.
I was bemoaning that the Pats had not complemented Brady with similar weapons.
To get back to your postulation for the present and future seasons, which game did you watch on Thursday? There were drops aplenty. Dobson looked like Chad Jackson. With the history of WR drafts and FA acquisitions of the Pats, and BB tight wallet, you are daydreaming if you think there will be a horde of 6 reliable and devastating targets Brady can be comfortable with on the Pats team all at once, any time soon.
Living well is the best revenge.
My bad, I was assuming you, like all the the other pessimists were pining for last years receivers.
As for the Colt's receivers, what did that get them? Two superbowl appearances with one questionable win.
I watched a game where a Pats receiver actually got behind a defense. Not only that but one of them got behind the defence AND caught the ball AND brought it all the way to the house. I watched a game where a QB was expecting a couple of rookies to play like fifth year players and they didn't but he didn't adjust. Not one thing that I saw was uncorrectable. And you are ready to jump off a bridge after just two games for one rook and the first game for another.
We just have a difference of opinion. I think they will be much better than last years group and you think they shouldn't be on the team. I remember a Tom Brady that was proud he could make any receiver look good, and I mean any receiver, and you remember a prima donna that can't or won't. Face it, going all Colts like the Pats have the last few years has done wonders for fantasy football but it hasn't won a superbowl and has made them very iffy in the playoffs.
