Should some of the blame for the teamís slow start fall on Brady? After all, it was Tom who decided not to show up for the volunteer workouts in the off season, where chemistry between the quarterback, lineman, and receivers starts to build. Did that also effect the defense, since they were practicing against backup quarterbacks?
Am I the only person who does not see Josh Gordon as this seasonís savior? The guy played in only 5 games in 2014, completely missed the 2015 and 2016 seasons, and then only played in 5 games last season. The Patriots supposedly have a very complex offensive system for receivers to pick up. How in the world will Gordon pick it up during the season? The Patriots have had veteran receivers show up during the offseason, who couldnít pick it up. Julian Edelman will (eventually) be a huge help when he comes back, but I don't have much of a hope for Gordon this season.
