You know, I used to think that too, but after taking a good look at the numbers he really doesn't do it as much as you think.
- Last week 14 of Brady's 19 completions went to either Givens (6) or Pass (8).
- Two weeks ago 15 of Brady's 31 completions went to Givens (9) or Branch (6). Kevin Faulk also had 7 receptions during this game.
- Three weeks ago 13 of Brady's 23 completions went to either Givens (5) or Branch (8).
- Week 1 Brady threw 13 of 24 completions to either Branch or Brown.
I guess what I'm trying (poorly) to point out is that Brady tends to lock onto two guys during each game and then shoot out a pass or two to the others. In this week's game I think Branch will be difficult to get the ball to so Brady will locate Givens or will dump the ball off.
That's the reason for the ~8 catches prediction I gave. Hopefully it will come true as I think I have to put Givens in to replace an ailing Horn.
