1. We are fine at 3-2. Before the season, just looking at the schedule, a few here were saying we could very likely be 3-3 or 4-3 by November. Our current record is not surprising, and could even have been expected. We have a new offensive coordinator, our QB is back from major knee surgery, we traded away our best D-lineman, lost our best linebacker for 4 games, just lost our left tackle, and have a TON of new players either through draft, trade, or free agency. It is, of course, legitimate to raise the current flaws of the team. There are issues with offensive and defensive play-calling and execution. However, who among us here are not confident that by December, this team will start rolling/gel'ing, as it always does? I'd wager that even those most critical right now, still have absolute confidence in the team's chances against anybody come wintertime. A few here, including myself, speculated that this season could be very similar to a 1988 49ers type season, where the team barely makes the playoffs and then goes on to win it all. It appears that this team is about right where many thought they were, or would be. 2. We also need to put Tom Brady into perspective. He's my favorite football player of this generation, and I think a top-5 all time QB, but I think some perspective needs to be placed on his abilities, especially for this year. He's not a superhero, and he is coming back from major injury. Even without his injury, I think we need to forget about Brady's 2007 season as some sort of benchmark or expectation for his performances moving forward. For almost every single year of his nearly 10-year career, Brady has been a QB who gives you about 3800 passing yards, 28 TD's, and 13 INT's. This is what he is: a smart QB who makes few mistakes. Tom Brady NFL & AFL Football Statistics | Pro-Football-Reference.com 2007 was an aberration, not a new spike in regular Brady performance. That year we unveiled a new Meyer-adapted spread offense, which teams did not game-plan against before. Also, that offensive unit was fueled all season by an "F-You" attitude in reaction to the Video Witch Hunt. We aren't going to see Brady approach 2007 for the rest of his career. We enjoyed it while it happened, but this team will get back to winning when the team, and the fans, realize that Brady is the same 28TD guy he's always been.
