I've edited this post to reflect the thoughtful commentary on here that has called me out for suggesting Brady has room for improvement -- because even the GOAT can be even greater. The picks place the Patriots in a difficult position and Brady would be the first to tell you that, as they're on to the Jets, he will be reviewing his picks rather than watching his td throw to Gronk while salivating. Long story short, what has been wrong with Brady compared to his usual self? He has been missing open receivers, has been throwing picks, etc. I'd say it is about the pass rush of the opposition, but even when the pressure isn't there he has been playing like the boogeyman is about to get him. In year's past, he's been hit more often but hasn't played like this for this number of games. So, is this him fighting an injury? A disruption to his training regimen? A psychic disturbance from beyond the grave or Peyton with a voodoo doll? Marriage trouble? The beginning of the dive off the cliff (aka "This is 40, Part II")? Today, Brady was a liability. The team would have beat the Bills 36-9 if you take away the pick 6. It was a close 16-16 game that could have been 20-16 Bills if they hadn't lost that touchdown before the half. Brady had some good throws, but as many iffy ones and the running game bailed them out. And that pick 6 will cost them a game in the playoffs if Brady doesn't clean a few aspects of his game up. Just saying.
