Much has been made of New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady and his on the field body language towards his receiving corps.  Brady has been criticized here in New England for not taking some of the heat for a slow start to a once blazing offense.  As Darin Gantt of NBCSports points out, Brady is doing just that. Brady, in is Monday morning conversation with the Dennis & Callahan show on WEEI, takes some of the blame for an offense that seems to be operating in a Cape Cod bog.  Brady told D&C:I am not making all of the right plays, either.  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.  And the younger players are doing a great job. They’re working really hard. Their attitude is great. It’s been fun to work with them. Hopefully it all pays off in November and December when if we can ever get to a point where we have a lot of our guys back and healthy and playing really well.Traditionally, Brady does not work well with new players who either fail to put in the time and learn the Patriots’ complex offensive schemes (see Brandon Lloyd and Joey Galloway) or just cannot learn the Patriots’ offense no matter how hard they try (see Chad Ochocinco).  Brady has a tendency to cast these players aside, rightfully or wrongly, and put them out on Block Island.  Rarely do these players have an impact during the season and they do not remain Patriots for very long.  However, in years past Brady had a healthy Gronkowski to fall back on or a durable Wes Welker to get that much-needed first down, a reliable Deion Branch and Danny Woodhead and (gasp) a sane Aaron Hernandez.  This year, Brady does not have that luxury.  Gronkowski is still out, Welker is now starring in Peyton’s Place, Branch is not even on the roster, Woodhead is walking tall in the southern California sun and Hernandez is more worried about dropping the soap than he is a Brady laser beam.   Brady needs to be perfect in every way this season for the Patriots’ offense to have any success.  This is tremendous pressure amassed on the shoulders of one individual but there is no way around it.  The outcome of this chemistry experiment begins and ends with Brady.  Moreover, it starts with his ability to give others time to get on his page.The question is, how much more time for Aaron Dobson or Josh Boyce or Kenbrell Thompkins or Zach Sudfeld?  With Danny Amendola out for an unspecified period of time (knew it) the learning curve just shriveled by 50 points.For this season to be a success, for this chemistry experiment to yield positive data, Brady will have to be the top rated quarterback he has always been plus the best teacher on the school yard.  If not, come mid-October, this offense will be utterly offensive.     You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
