    hah -- rest of the actual headline is "Chandler Jones off to a good start."

    Funny how much difference a few words can make!



    Edit: For those late in joining this thread: The original headline on the forum page ended at "Chandler Jones Off." Just having fun.

    The reason for the sacks are as follows...

    1. Longer developing routes by inexperienced NFL WR's, causing Brady to hold the ball longer.

    2. Awful interior pass protection.

    3. Playing teams with good to excellent DL's.

    With that being said, it's no surprise that Brady is on pace to be sacked more this season than he has in any other season. It's also one of the myriad of reasons why this offense has been pedestrian (and that's putting it lightly) since the start of the season. The "Brady is declining" crowd should pay close attention here.

    I consider Jones having 7.5 sacks.

    1. Missing Welker and Woodhead. Hopefully, Vereen and Amendola coming back can give him a quick dump-off target to avoid the sack.

    2. Yup. I'm still baffled Cannon didn't see that LB on New Orleans right in front of him. Wendell has just gotten over-powered a few times. Need Connolly to stay healthy.

    3. Meh. Excuse

    Some numbers from that piece this morning for those who may not have read it:

    Thought those stats were interesting when I was digging around last night, and definitely concerning. The long yardage stats were the ones that were interesting because they didn't experience the same problems in 2012 and seemed to be in manageable downs for the most part. That hasn't obviously been the case this season to this point.
