3,243 yards, 28 TDs, 6 INTs, 101.1 rating
Brady is eighth in yards and rating and fourth in touchdowns. His case is largely based on how good the Patriots are — they’re the class of the AFC — and the players around him. Or lack thereof.
The Patriots’ best running back was a guy they picked up off the street about two weeks ago. Their best receiver isn’t a receiver at all. He’s a tight end. The Patriots pretty much said, “Hey Dreamboat, go out and win with this bunch of clowns, this year.” And Dreamboat has complied. That is impressive, but the numbers just aren’t gaudy enough.
