Tom's completion percentage of 61.1% is the 4th lowest completion percentage in his entire career. Not only that, but it represents a rather sharp decline. In 2016, at age 39, it was 67.4...then 66.3, then 65.8...a slow gradual decline...then suddenly, it's over 4 points lower between this year and last.
He is only on pace to throw 24 TDs, which would be the lowest in his entire career as a starter. Even in 2016, when he sat out the first 4 games, he still threw 28 TDs in 12 games.
His QB rating of 88.2 is his worst since 2013.
Just WATCH the games. It's clear that he isn't the same QB that he used to be, he is getting frustrated by the fact he can't make the same throws he used to, making some poor choices, I mean, it's obvious!
The case against Tom Brady being done:
Still on pace to throw for 4,300+ passing yards. How can a QB who is still throwing for over 4k yards a season be "washed up"?
He is making much poorer reads? While he is only on pace to throw 24 TDs, he is also on pace to only throw 8 INTs this year. Through 12 games, he has only thrown 6. Tom Brady is still very good at decision making, it's not his fault he has nobody to throw to.
That Patriots offense that is struggling so much? They are 5th in the NFL in scoring, and still in top 10 as far as passing offenses go.
Since when is a 10-2 record through 12 games a bad thing?
The Patriots offense might have problems, but Tom Brady isn't one them.
New England is still in good position to win the AFC East, and secure a wildcard week bye.
Bottom line: Tom Brady is on pace for 13-3 record, 4,357 passing yards, 24 TDs, 8 INTs.
