    Big difference between last year offense and this year. Brady had multiple guys he can trust last year .

    They should. He built this offense. He brought in the personnel. I personally blame him.

    And one we haven't spent a lot of time questioning on this forum. Seems to have been overshadowed by AB. Not a lot of leaks regarding Gordon either, except that comment from Dorsett or whoever that said he appreciated that Sanu would "show up" (which was framed as an apparent slight at Gordon).

    I think slack was given because Gordon wasn't flashing as a monster, and people were overhyping the likely impact of Harry.

    Maybe they don't have the horses this year. But maybe they ride D/ST to a title a la 2001 with 3 offensive TDs in 3 playoff games. The standard they've set has no comparison in the SB era. I'm not going to kill them if they struggle to meet it.

    Regards,
    Chris

    That sounds about right to me. We didn't really appreciate what they had in Gordon and/or how bad it could get.

    Either Gordon really messed up or they mismanaged whatever happened. It seems like it could be both. It would’ve been a better option to keep Gordon and get through the rest of the season, rather than trading away a second rounder who would take awhile to understand the offense and ultimately, try and produce at a time when a rookie would be seeing his first snaps as another new receiver.

    Harry is not just a rookie, he is one that spent weeks on IR. There are good WRs in this league that did little their first couple of years.

    I blame Kraft mostly because he took away Tom’s shiniest weapon. I think Bill has tried. He brought in AB, he sent a second rounder for Sanu at the deadline, he drafted a receiver in the first round.

    Though I do blame him for cutting Josh Gordon. He isn’t the Josh Gordon of old at all, but he can win those one on one battles that others on the team can’t.

    cutting AB will be like the Malcolm Butler benching. A mistake that costs the team a super bowl

    BB chose to get rid of Gordon and Thomas. BB chose not to spend the draft capital on a TE, or to bring in anything more than a stop gap longshot at the position. BB chose not to find a veteran RB, opting for a draftee who isn't even making the active list.

    An extremely apathetic/disengaged response. He has accepted that Brady has no trust in him

    Learning when to use the body to box out, and when to just come back to the ball, is something that he'll improve on. But the fact that he's still at the stage where he doesn't know which to choose on plays that should be his specialty is not a good thing.

    Brady doesn’t have time to babysit these guys. Sanu and dorsett have to start doing more. These guys where pretty much pathetic tonight!
