I think people are a little bit over confident when it comes to Bradys ability to make everything work. Yes, he certainly is a massive benefit, but we've seen in the past what happens when we put it completely on his shoulders to win the game. We can't win that way. No QB in the history of the league could do that. In 2011 and 2010 he got WAY closer than I thought remotely possible, but he's aging and should be throwing less, not more. People will point to 2006. We had one of the best defenses in the NFL year. I'm high on this years defense, but lets be honest. They are not going to be that good. That defense was stacked. Elite DL. Elite LB corps. Solid secondary. Along with loaded veteran savvy and experience. People will try to pretend Dobson and Boyce will come in and light it up. They're rookies. We haven't had a successful rookie WR since Branch a decade ago. Why is it assumed that BOTH guys will come in and have a big time immediate impact? Both are good prospects who may or may not be ready this year. People will point to Amendola. Um what? He's missed as many games as he has started in his career. That was with a lighter workload. Now he's going to significantly increase his workload to match Welker's and stay healthy the entire season? AND be as efficient? Sorry. I can't buy that. The beginning of the season will be ugly; and everyone will bemoan the end of the world. Then around the midpoint the team will get on a roll and start winning some games. We will be seen as a contender. We will win a first round playoff game against an inferior team and then lose to a better team in the playoffs where we and the media will all point to the inferior wide receiver options and there not being enough talent there. Brady is the GOAT. But there are limits to what even the GOAT can do.
