    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.

    Did...did you watch the second half of this game? Look at those stats and get back to me.

    I think you may want to rethink this.

    It was actually a great pick 6 by the defender. He had to use a lot of athletism to get there so tip your cap and move on. There are two teams out there playing at the highest level.

    Some inaccurate passes and bad decisions but certainly not a liability. He is likely still hurt FFS, some people here are as eager for Brady to fall off as Max Kellerman.

    I dont think there is anything major wrong with Brady.

    The Bills got him on the pick 6, he missed Gronk once and then he overthrew that one pass to Cooks. Apart from that he look solid in the first half and pretty good in the second.

    If anything the throwaway with Gronk tripled, taking the FG instead of forcing it in and risking a redzone turnover told me all I needed to know about him still being on top of his game.

    He had a 106.8 rating, but still managed to miss more throws than earlier in the season and threw a pick 6. I'm not sure how he is happy with this performance. I stated he was a liability because he was slightly off and the running game helped to mask that. It is amazing he got a great game, technically, when he has been off for about a month.

    Nothing. He’s a “bad stretch” by his/our standards. He’ll be fine. He looked great today, besides a couple of errant throws (ex: throw behind Gronk early in the game). Brady’s the last thing I’m worried about.

    I really like when I sit down to take a poop, and that first wipe has nothing there. A clean poop! It feels like a victory of sorts. Perhaps life has started to make me really appreciate the little things, or maybe I am overcome by Christmas mirth.

    I hope I added something of value to this thread.

    A little of both. I do think he is not 100% out there and wondered if he is in a bit of a funk (for Brady). But I also wanted to be a little absurd, too. Overall, the increased interceptions do concern me... but I guess all the man-to-man coverage teams have been playing have resulted in more picks, but also more big play potential for the Patriots when someone misses a tackle.

    Honestly I think at this point in his career he’s guilty of overthinking it at times....he’s at his best when he’s playing fast and loose and letting it fly

    I prefer splash damage. Then everyone knows I was there for a while. Alas, Ozymandias says no crap will endure forever...

    I mean he's been missing two of his top targets from last year and today was missing White and Burkhead as well. He always struggles against the Dolphins in Miami, we just got a 12th win, it's hard to think that we're seeing problems here...
