Let’s just watch Brady accomplish more in 12 regular season games than most quarterbacks can with a full complement of 16. Wouldn’t that be so Brady? Even with quality-control issues on his offensive line and injuries to his receiving corps last season, Brady still had himself involved in the MVP debate for most of 2015, and when all was said and done New England barely missed out on a seventh Super Bowl trip with him at the helm. He’ll be 39 in early August, and at some point his age has to put some limitations on his game. But once again he’ll have something to prove this season when he takes the field post-suspension, and we’ve seen how much he can milk out of the man-on-a-mission routine. Pick against the Patriots in the AFC East at your own peril.
