    Because Tom Brady is 35 years old. Simple as that.


    While he certainly isn't ancient, he's getting up there and father time catches up with everyone. Wear and tear comes into effect. The more he drops back, the more chance there is for injury.


    It did not make any sense at all when we were stomping teams last year, and Bill O'Brien still had Brady slinging it when we had a great OLine and just drafted 2 Running Backs. To be honest, I think O'Brien just wanted to inflate his numbers so that he'd have a better chance at getting a Head Coaching job himself. A greedy mentality.

    Pounding the rock may allow Brady to extend his career an extra year or two.

    3rd in the NFL in rushing.

    Other teams with elite QBs - Giants #12 ,Packers #20,Falcons #21, Steelers #26, Saints #28 ,



    49ers are averaging 195 yards per game and 6.1 ypc as a team right now. Weakass jests and bills.

    Not sure Bill O'Brien did all this as contended, as BB is not listening to Bon Jovi in his headphones..

    Last year was their rookie year, and Vereen was hurt for most of the year.. this year they are all healthy and with Bolden added to the fold.. they provide more of a running game than I can remember..

    BJGE was a solid back for us, and Ridley played well last year too, when given the chance.

    I agree about Brady's age, but I also like the balance. This offense has lacked balance for a while now. Defenses can't just pin their ears back and attack Brady anymore when they play the Patriots. They have a running game to worry about now. There are backs on this roster that are a threat to take it to the house if defenses don't pay attention to them.

    As to the title of the thread, I thought this paragraph on Boston.com summed it up (by someone name Zuri Berry, whoever that is):


    They can pretty much out-adjust anyone. Even without AHern.
