He didn't even really have Edelman at 100%. IMHO, by the end of the year (which means I am factoring in the Edelman injury and AB/Gordon being long gone), 2019 was the worst group of receivers Brady had in his entire career. Even worse than 2006.
Has there even been a worse group of WR/TEs than what Brady was throwing to in the wild card game?
2 WRs that were probably too hard to be playing, one rookie WR that gets less seperation than the previous 2 wrs, and 1 40 year old TE.
Whats funny is that Week 2 Brady theoretically had one of the greatest WR corps in NFL history.
Edelman, AB, and Josh Gordon. At full strength that would have been incredible
Interestingly for the 3 days between AB signing and Thomas being traded the Patriots actually had 3 WRs who had gone for over 1600 yards in a season on the roster.
