    This has Offense has got to drive DCs crazy.

    If the O Line can give Brady time, he's got his choice of numerous quality receivers most of whom are either quick enough or big enough to give Brady several choices of open receivers on each play.

    What's also interesting is the way in which they use their TEs... Hernandez in particular is effectively our deep threat - and that itself presents some defensive challenges for the other team.... hopefully Ochocinco's one pass caught is the first of many more... but I tend to think he wasn't getting a lot of first looks with the yard per catch production Brady was getting out of shorter passes all night.

    All in all a great game on so many levels - let's just hope everyone can get or stay healthy!

    It wasn't helping that Chad was not only being bottled up by Vontae Davis, but was also looking at double coverage with a safety over the top on top of not being totally comfortable with the offense. I expect that he'll come on and develop a rapport with Brady over time.

    What 85 double covered most of the game? If so, it explains why others ran free and also his overall flat stat line.
