So Brady, who has worked with literally 100s of WRs over his career, for the first time simply refused to help a rookie learn the offense? That sounds like total tabloid nonsense.
As for Brady's decline - can somebody point it out to me, without reference to statistics - I mean how is he physically worse than last year?
I'm watching the game and I'm seeing a 42 year climb the pocket and avoid sacks just like he used to. He's throwing the ball away, a lot, because guys aren't open. His throws aren't floating, they still have a spiral. When guys are open he's hitting them. There aren't plays left out on the field because Brady is missing open guys, but there are drives stalling because Dorsett/Sanu/Meyers aren't getting open 1v1 when teams are doubling Edelman. And they have no TEs worthy of an NFL roster.
There's a lot of people who assume the problem must be Brady because he's old, or maybe even would like it to be Brady because they dislike him, but I'm watching the play on the field, and if Marshall Newhouse were Trent Brown, and Watson was Gronkowski, this offense would be fine.
At some point, the idea that they can just let good players go and replace them was going to have an impact. It killed a good offense in 2005/6. It killed a good offense in 2013. And it's killing a good offense now.
