Thise past couple of weeks, the OL has needed help so it seems that Brady is locked in one Moss and Welker. We have been saying that colts passing offense is so much more varied and that Manning has so many more targets. The facts show that Brady and Manning both have lots of targets. For simplicity, I have only included players who have at least 10 catches o far this year. The totals for these players is 301 for the patriots and 303 for the colts. RUNNING BACKS Addai and Brown 53 Faulk, Maroney and Morris 59 TOP 2 RECEIVERS Wayne and Clark 160 Moss and Welker 163 THE #3 RECEIVER OPTION Collie 47 Edelman and Aiken 43 (it is rare that both are in the game plan for a game) THE #4 RECEIVER OPTION Garcon 43 Watson and Baker 33 CONCLUSIONS There are differences. Our #2 threat is a slot back; theirs is a tight end. Our #4 is the TE, their is the #3 WR. Brady spreads it out a bit more with 9 players with over 10 catches against only 6 for the colts. The obvious differences do NOT have to do with the #3 receiving threat or the number of catches or even the number of points. The obvious differences have to with red zone production and 2nd half production.
