Part of what has helped past Super Bowl runs are guys like Gronk and Blount balancing Brady's intensity. There is plenty of blame with the offense's performance to go around, but Brady is also making mistakes out there and his frustrations with everyone else -- but seemingly not himself -- are hurting morale with the offense. And there is no one on the offense, as far as I can see, who is offsetting Brady's gloomy disposition right now. Leadership sometimes means to yelling at the other guys to light a fire under them. Just as often, though, leadership can be giving the guys around you hope that it will all come together if they keep working. I'm worried the guys will quit on Brady if he treats them like disposable placeholders rather than teammates. More than anything, I hope we can find a "fun" guy or two this offseason to help keep things more in perspective for Brady and the young guys looking to him for leadership. Otherwise, I can see guys burning out on what is turning into the uber-serious grimdark of a pigskin movie directed by Zack Snyder.
