The Patriots may have won their first two games of the 2013 season, but the most played images of the Pats two victories was Tom Brady’s disappointed gestures, directed at his inexperienced receiving corps. Brady went on Boston radio Monday to let everyone know all the blame shouldn’t be place on his young receivers.
“I’m not making all the right plays, either,” Brady said. “It’s not like the rookie receivers are messing up all the time — no, not at all. Look, I’ve been really able to count on those guys. They’ve done an incredible job. I think we’ve got to improve in all aspects of our offense, and that will hopefully remove some of the burden that is fallen on the receivers right now. We have a lot of veteran players that aren’t playing right now, too, that if they were playing, the burden would be spread around to different guys who have actually been able to, would shoulder a lot of that responsibility that’s now fallen on the younger players.”
Smart by Brady to take some of the heat off his young receivers, and admit some of his throws weren’t always on target.
