Yes, then we'd get the whole "he can't get our system down" thing like we are experiencing with Ocho. it seems like the only WR whose antennas tune into the "Brady Channel" so they know what he is thinking, are the rare breeds like Welker and Moss.
Everyone else - Galloway, CJackson, and hopefully not 85, seem to struggle because either they are illiterate and can't understand the playbook or spend to much time on twitter and don't buy into the Patriots way.

Substitute the name of any vet receiver we have signed in the BB/Brady Era and you can make the statement above. Example:
If Donald Hayes can catch balls from Chris Weinke, he can certainly do it from Brady too.
Hayes was a tall, strong Big-10 WR who had been in the NFL for 3 years before we discovered he was an illiterate with no skills (my way of saying he couldn't catch on to our system).
I love the Pats, but these things annoy me to the point where it's hard to get excited when we draft/pick up a WR. I won't know if the guy is going to be the Oxford/Harvard/Patriots type or the Florida/any state school/any other team in the NFL type.
