Patriots QB Tom Brady says he has to figure out how to ‘get the ball to everybody’

It is no secret that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has struggled over the past several weeks. It appears he may have an idea of how to get back on track.

New England’s offense was nothing short of abysmal in their 34-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, Brady feels he must do a better job of spreading the wealth:

“I have to figure out a way to get the ball to everybody, so we can all make plays,” Brady acknowledged Monday during his weekly interview on sports radio WEEI. “When everyone is making plays, I think our offense is tough to stop. That will certainly be something we try to focus on and make sure everyone is getting looks they deserve and make plays when we get them.”

There is certainly plenty of truth to Brady’s comments. He focused heavily on trying to get the ball to wide receivers Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon. Both players saw 12 targets each against a porous Titans secondary. Meanwhile, a total of three passes were allocated to the rest of the receivers.

It clearly became obvious for Tennessee where he was going with the ball. As a result, the poor distribution of wealth did not translate into much success on offense. Brady has now only thrown one touchdown over the last three games. This has raised concerns regarding the state of the Patriots offense in the second half of the season. Fortunately, they will have the bye week to help them get back on track before squaring off against a New York Jets defense that gave up 41 points against the Buffalo Bills last week.
