Brady could sure throw the deep ball to Moss back in 2007. Is this an age issue or a receiver issue? I don't think it is an Oline issue as he had three weeks back there on the pass to Gronk in the endzone today. Also, he had one of the best Offense lines in the league in 2011. Some stats to note from Patriots' loss - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston Brady was 3-for-12 for 80 yards on throws of at least 15 yards downfield. Heâ€™s 6-for-19 on such throws through the first two games. Brady connected on 51 percent of his 15-plus yard throws last season. Brady had a pair of overthrows on pass attempts thrown 30 or more yards downfield in this game. Since the start of 2011 has overthrown 12 of his 19 attempts at least 30 yards downfield (63.2 percent, highest rate in NFL).
