New England Patriots QB Tom Brady hasn't been in this situation for quite some time, sure the offense has had bad days in the past, but it's usually one game. However, in 2013 the struggles have been constant as a young receiving corps along with injuries to key players WR Danny Amendola, TE Rob Gronkowski, and RB Shane Veeren haven't been able to come together all at one time. Brady says he just wants to score points, but last week in Cincinnati the offense could only muster two field goals. "I just want us to score points, so whatever it takes to score points, that’s what matters," Brady said, via Zuri Berry of Boston.com. "I think you let your emotions get into it and feelings and so forth – I mean realistically, you have to come up with a plan. We have to figure out how to score points. "I said after the game, we’re not going to win many games scoring six points. So, if we score six points this weekend, we probably won’t win. We’ve got to do a lot better than that."

Round Table: Is Brady Declining?

Are the offensive struggles solely due to the overhaul in personnel or is Tom Brady starting to show signs of decline? Jason: I think it's an 85-15 split between personnel and decline. He's not making bad decisions with the football, but he's undoubtably playing carefully with the football since he doesn't have the same trust with this receiving corps and he...

Tom Brady Cuts to the Point on Patriots Offense

Tom Brady spoke at his weekly news conference on what's ailing the Patriots offense and what the team plans to do while it waits for the return of Rob Gronkowksi. Frustration may as well have been a banner flying high above Brady's head for the past couple of days. The Patriots offense has been a far cry from where it was last year. Averaging 19 points a game, down...

Brady needs frustration to pass

The midweek NFL injury report came out Wednesday, and as usual New England did not list the most obvious item. Name: Tom Brady. Position: Quarterback. Injury: Tongue. Game Status: Probable. The Patriots' offense is a mess. As he has done throughout his career, Brady bit his tongue when asked why. By now it must be hanging together by a couple of taste buds. "I just want...

Report: ‘Serious concern’ over Rob Gronkowski’s forearm

The New England Patriots had hoped tight end Rob Gronkowski would make his season debut this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. However, Gronkowski has yet to be cleared by orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Jesse Jupiter, who performed the latest forearm surgery on Gronkowski. According to a source of WEEI.com, “there is 

3 Problems a Gronk Return Won't Fix

1: Rookie Mistakes The growing pains of Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson have been well documented. The two rookie receivers have made some plays so far this season, but also driven Tom Brady b-a-n-a-n-a-s at times with drops and misreads. Gronk's return will help in the sense that Brady will be less reliant on these unreliable (for now) players, but it won't make Thompkins...

New Orleans Saints at New England Patriots: 2013 Week 6 NFL Pick

New Orleans Saints (5-0) at New England Patriots (4-1) The Patriots had their worst offensive performance since 2006 last week. It was the first time since 2006 that they scored fewer than 7 points in a game. On top of that, Brady hadn’t had a completion percentage that low since 2007. Fortunately, help should be on its way. Stevan Ridley will be back to give them another option...

Fantasy Football: Game of the Week Preview

These two teams are a combined 9-1 this season with six Super Bowl appearances in the last 12 years. It's actually surprising and depressing that we haven't had the privilege to watch these two powerhouses perform on the biggest stage in the final game. Last year, the Saints started the season 0-4 and had a defense that allowed 28.4 points per game in 2012 (31st in the league...

Preview: Patriots vs. Saints

Last week, the New England Patriots (4-1) fell for the first time this season as the offense once again took two steps back. For the first time in 52 games, Tom Brady failed to throw a touchdown pass in a 13-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. New England's defense played well in the absence of Vince Wilfork, and now will be without Tommy Kelly on Sunday after Kelly left the...
