NFL |  The Patriots needed Tom Brady

NFL | The Patriots needed Tom Brady

The legend of Bill Belichick has been gradually tarnished since Tom Brady’s departure from New England. Looking back, the only logical conclusion is that Brady was the key to the Patriots’ success.

Tom Brady signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 marked the end of an era in Boston. After six Super Bowl victories, a divorce between Brady and Belichick would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. But the midfielder needs to prove himself elsewhere.

Throughout his career, 199H He was selected in the 2000 draft by critics saying that his success and rise in history was due to the genius of his coach.

However, Belichick has been helpless since the quarterback’s departure. Conversely, Brady was able to win a Super Bowl, in Tampa Bay, without the right Bell.

The latter is on pace to have his worst season since arriving with the Patriots. The team has a record of two wins and eight losses. Belichick’s two worst seasons at the helm of the Pats were in 2000, with five wins, and in 2020, with seven wins. In 2000, Brady was not yet a starter, and by 2020, he had defected. Leave Bill Belichick alone.

Belichick is unable to produce Mac Jones, even though he is a smart quarterback with a style similar to Brady’s. We will come back to this.

But TB12’s contribution was not only felt in the work of the head coach. All the offensive coordinators who were drawn to Tom Brady during his glory years couldn’t stand on their own two feet, unlike him.

Bill O’Brien, the Pats’ offensive coordinator in 2011, hasn’t done anything extraordinary in his six years at the helm of the Houston Texans. Josh McDaniels, Brady’s friend, had a tough time with the Las Vegas Raiders. Charlie Weis was unable to get a head coaching job in the NFL after leaving New England.

The same goes for receivers. What would Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman do without Tom Brady? next to nothing.

For three seasons, Patriots fans have been struggling, with only one playoff appearance. They miss Brady terribly. Perhaps more than we expected, because Belichick’s genius may be less great than we thought.

Mac Jones is less bad than he seems

For the first time in his 23 years with the Patriots, the quarterback position is available. Mac Jones doesn’t do the job. However, he is not the only one. It’s impossible to ask his center to perform miracles when his three main targets are Kendrick Bourne, Demario Douglas and Hunter Henry.

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones

Brady became a legend in particular because he was able to produce shadow players, unknowns that other teams didn’t want.

Jones is unable to do the same. It would be unrealistic to compare him to the greatest midfielder in history, but his potential was enormous. Remember how dominant he was with the Alabama Crimson Tide in 2021. He was the perfect candidate to replace Brady without changing the Patriots’ identity. Jones is a pocket quarterback who can shine in a good system. However, Belichick’s system has flaws.

Then, despite everything, when we look at Jones’ statistics, we realize that his performance is not bad at all. For three seasons, 15H The 2021 draft pick completed 66.2% of his passes, threw 46 touchdown passes and 34 interceptions and amassed 8,829 yards through the air.

For comparison, No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence has a 64% completion rate, 48 touchdowns, 31 interceptions, and 10,136 receiving yards.

Going down the menu, it’s not much better. The second pick, Zach Wilson, completed 56.5% of his passes, scored 21 touchdowns, intercepted 25 and threw for 5,966 yards. The third pick, Trey Lance, never flourished. eleventhH Justin Fields completed 60.4% of his passes, threw 36 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions, accumulating 5,482 yards through the air.

Mac Jones is having a tough time, but he’s not the only one responsible for the Patriots’ setbacks. He just fell on the wrong team. His next game against the New York Giants will be crucial for the future.
