i remember the play he did it, too. pretty early in the year
Never seen Brady overthrow or misplace that many balls. Made me curious, had to be a slight injury of some sort.
We knew it wasn't nerves or the moment, 3-time SB winner.
i mean with regard to the deep balls...he's never been great on those 40+ yard throws. the only time he was dominant with it was with moss because it's tough to over throw moss. brady was never a 50 yard throw on a dime type of guy in my eyes. not what made him great.
this year looked bad, but he's overthrowing guys like edelman and collie. and he put a few bombs right on the money that were dropped as well, also killing his deep ball percentage. but regardless, the deep ball isn't his thing. 10-25 yards is the range where he's untouchable. it's why he was so effective with gronk and AH81.
this was just a tough year. edelman literally the ONLY receiver that consistently played. great, a nice reliable target that stands 5'9". the reaction to the departure of welker, the AH81 bs, and even gronk's issues was terrible by our FO (belichick) this year. hopefully they address it.
and agreed that a full offseason for KT and AD should help take their game up a couple notches. but they need a TE to compliment or replace gronk. i say replace as in fill in for him when he's hurt.
