HE’S BACK BITCHES!!!!
The GOAT has now officially returned to the New England Patriots to guide them back to the Super Bowl!
THANK GOD his suspension is over too, I couldn’t even watch the second half of the Bills game this week, and I honestly think that this team without Brady maybe could have had some problems with the Browns.
But none of that crap matters now, I appreciate and thank Jimmy G and Jacoby Brissett for all they have done in the past 4 weeks. A lot of people thought the Patriots would go 1-3, not 3-1. I think now that deflategate is officially over, we can rule that the Patriots were the obvious winners. 3-1, two young QBs who we now know can BALL OUT, proof the Belichick is the greatest coach ever. These 4 weeks taught Pats fans a ton about our team, but Brady is needed, and needed badly and this is why.
The past few weeks Edelman has struggled to find a solid place in the offense, probably because his connection with the young guys isn’t as strong as his connection with Brady. In this past game versus Buffalo Edelman managed only 1 reception for 16 yards. The past 3 years with Brady, Edelman has averaged 6.62 receptions per game.
With Brady back on the field, Edelman’s productions should become more consistent as he will get more targets, receptions and hopefully touchdowns. This team needs Edelman to get back to his 2014-15 self desperately so then Amendola can get open, which will get Chris Hogan more targets, which will open up lanes for Gronk and Bennett. In my mind this offense cannot succeed without Julian Edelman, and with Brady back in town, the Patriots (and Edelman) are going to start to roll.
Gronk has been practically invisible the first quarter of the season, mostly because of his ailing hamstring, but even when he has been on the field, he’s been used as a decoy or blocker.
I know this probably isn’t true, but I feel like Bill was holding Gronk away from the field on purpose.
It makes total sense to me. Why risk Gronk getting hurt in one of the 4 games that were essentially meaningless to the Patriots. Make sure he his healthy and ready for when Tom Brady returns, then win out the last 12 games.
Now this theory could be proven or busted in the next game against Cleveland, depending on the workload we see from Gronk, but I fully expect to see the big fella go off this weekend.
THE PATRIOTS ARE SIMPLY A BETTER TEAM WITH TOM BRADY
Tell me I’m wrong on this… you can’t. The Patriots are by far a better team with Tom Brady. This point really seems like common sense, but it had to be said to address all those haters who called Tom Brady a system QB.
I know New England fans get a ton of crap for being arrogant and cocky, but I don’t think we could have won a super bowl without Brady. He’s just way too good, and way too important to this offense. You saw the struggles against the Bills with Brissett, you saw the struggles Garoppolo had against Arizona, Brady would have DESTROYED those teams. Plain and simple.
The Patriots are back and ready to roll
Browns seriously better prepare themselves cause this guys coming back and isn’t afraid to claim lives…
