Tom Brady: 'We've got one guy' playing well on offense
New England is averaging 22 points a game so far this season -- tied for 14th in the league -- but the team is 27th in total offense, averaging just over 301 yards a game.
“I don’t think anybody has really found their stride this year,” Brady said on WEEI Radio, via the Boston Herald. “I don’t know who you can point to on offense and say, ‘Wow, they’re really clicking.’
Brady seemed to single out receiver Julian Edelman as the one person doing anything significant on offense. Edelman caught 10 passes for 84 yards in New England’s 16-9 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
"Yeah, he’s done a good job, so that’s one,” Brady said. “We’ve got a lot of other guys on offense. There’s 22 other guys on offense, so I’m not going to sit here and say every single guy is clicking. We’ve had one individual player that’s caught some passes. Great. Does that make a good offense? I don’t think so.”
Brady has completed 59 percent of his passes and has thrown three touchdowns and no interceptions for the Patriots, who take on the Kansas City Chiefs (1-2) next Monday night.
