With that said, he has dangerous WR's (and TE's) that he can throw to. That makes him a leathal weapon in fantasy. Sucks for the receiver owners, but owners of this QB should be happy!
Another scary thought is that he did this without Troy Brown. He'll be another option to go to. That's the thing. Those receivers are going to be able to run their routes well, hard and fast. They'll get EXCELLENT reps in there. And the even better part, they don't have HUGE egos. All they want to do is play and win.
Add the OUTSTANDING offensive line into the mix, Brady's patience in the pocket (what brass balls he had in the end zone a couple of times last night...didn't phase him one bit) and you have a dangerous QB. Good god, did you see him manage that clock? He was driving the Colts defense NUTS!
Sure, his numbers won't be the same every week, but I bet they are going to be damn good.
Another thing to consider was how they ran the offense last night. Sure, Dillon owners are probably pissed about him riding the sidelines for most of the game, but did anyone think how HUGE that was for their offensive strategy? Get this, ZERO players in the backfield on most of their plays. Um, it's going to be a pass! A no-brainer for the defense! And guess what, he made the passes! He got the first downs! He got the TDs!! Then, when Dillon ran, he ran HARD and got the yardage! And still pulled out 80+ yards in that game. Wait until they start to balance things out. It's going to keep the D guessing.
Just my thoughts, and they only time he won't be starting this year (barring any injuries) will be week 3.
Dude, lighten up a little bit. Look at the numbers over Brady's career, very up and down to say the least. Who knows, maybe this is the year that he puts it all together and keeps it going consistently but even Manning is erratic with stats, it just happens that Brady has traditionally been a little more feast of famine.
I dig on the WR corps that they've got there. Alot of guys that are pretty much the same makes it damn hard to key on one guy. I think Patten could be a real nice deep sleeper for those that are in need of someone.
As for the "OUTSTANDING offensive line", man, that remains to be seen. They certainly didn't look all that outstanding last night. There seemed to be a lot of heat on Brady from a subpar pressure defense.
Don't get me wrong, I love Brady when it comes to the intangibles, the dude is just cool in the clutch. IMO, he's a better real life QB than a fantasy one is all.
