WSJ: Tom Brady’s Days Are Numbered

For years, it’s seemed like Tom Brady could pile up points even if the New England Patriots sent out an offense comprising a couple of beer vendors and the lady from the ticket office.

But this season, Brady’s powers are being put to the test like never before–and he’s starting to show some cracks.

It’s all about the receivers, of course, so the Journal provides this helpful chart tracking  Brady by the numbers.

Well that’s a downward spiral, eh? “[Brady’s] efficiency has declined with each loss of a key target. So, too, has New England’s scoring, from 35.1 points per game with all three receivers to 25.8 without the trio.”

Then again, as the Journal also notes, Gronk should be back soon. Then the Pats can return to the glory days of 53.1% completions.
