The New England Patriots may be near the top of the NFL record-wise, but there are some cracks that are starting to show. Tom Brady and his offensive starting cast do not appear to be on the same page late in the season and many think this is the beginning of the end of his dominant run the last 20 years. However, others think it's his weapons that are to blame for the team's offensive struggles. What do you think? 🏈

When Josh Allen, Kyle Allen, Mason Rudolph and Mitch Trubisky have a better completion percentage than you, may it's time to admit you can't do the things you used to do. There's no shame it. Father time is undefeated.

At his peak, Brady was able to get the most out of his receivers and still play at an MVP level. This year, he just seems a step slower and his ability to get the ball accurately has been diminished. When pressure does come, it's not like he's a rookie and doesn't know how to read a defense. He has been adept at getting the ball off quickly and accurately, but even that talent has gone by the wayside. That's not to say he can't win, he just has to know he's more a game manager like Peyton Manning was in the twilight of his career.

He might be winning now, but Brady for all intents and purposes is washed.

Anyone who blames Brady for the offensive struggles of the New England Patriots needs to reexamine their knowledge of football. It's not like he can block and catch the ball by himself. There's plenty of blame to go around.

The offensive line hasn't been giving him a lot of time to throw and for a quarterback as slow as Brady is, he needs all of the time you can give him for routes to develop. Even the quick routes he's been throwing the last few years of his career have been hindered by the line's inability to properly protect him.

His receiving corp outside of James White and Julian Edelman is also unproven and raw. Once defenses take his two top targets away, the other receivers have to be able to win in order for the team to be successful. That has not happened and it's not Brady's fault is receivers can't get separation.

Brady isn't washed. He just doesn't have the same level of talent NFL fans are used to seeing. He just won a Super Bowl last year for crying out load. Give him the tools and he'll show you how elite he really is.
