Tom Brady owners don’t need to be reminded how brutal 2013 has been so far: 66 points on 111/196 for 1,211 yards, 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. His New England Patriots are 4-1, but Brady’s subpar personal performance culminated in the premature end of his near record-breaking streak of 52 consecutive games with a touchdown pass thrown—Drew Brees retains that crown at 54 games.Brady’s game isn’t declining, but the talent around him is.Danny Amendola has already missed more games than he’s participated in—three out, two in—which has been the knock on him his entire career. Rob Gronkowski may finally be ready to make his ’13 debut in week 6, but it feels like he’s just cobbled together and is one weird hit or fall away from returning to the IR.Besides Julian Edelman, Brady’s young bunch of butterfingers are off to a dubious start. They’ve dropped one out of every nine pass attempts, tying Brady with Matthew Stafford for third worst in the league. Aaron Dobson (23.5%), Kenbrell Thompk
