Tom Brady Makes Bold Suggestion For Patriots Offense

The New England Patriots have problems with their offense. This happens for the first time in a decade. The Patriots offense is something head coach Bill Belichick should worry about.

The first three games of this season are pretty similar to the 2006 offense in which Reche Caldwell and Jabar Gaffney were considered top targets. Quarterback Tom Brady has just a few players to throw the ball to, and that’s bad. So, Brady is trying to make sure he gets all the opportunities. He showed this attitude towards James White after the Week 3 loss to the Detroit Lions when asked if the running back deserves more opportunities. Yes, the Patriots offense has to get stronger.

“He had a great catch and some great runs there at the end for us. He’s just a great player for us. He’s got to be involved. Guys who can make plays, those are the ones that should be involved, and James is certainly one of them,” the quarterback said.

White is the most active running back in the team so far. He was active in over 51 percent of the Patriots offensive snaps when compared to the 32 percent for Rex Burkhead and 19 percent for Sony Michel.

Michel almost topped him in the Week 3 game, and he was pretty ineffective. He averaged just 3.5 yards per carry, and had only two receptions for three yards through two games. Michel didn’t have all the explosiveness the team needed, and Burkhead lacks reliability. White was the only constant Brady could rely on.

The Patriots better improve their structure, because they can’t afford another loss. They’re the Super Bowl team, and being this ineffective isn’t their style. The head coach will probably fix the damage, and add a few more changes in order to win this time. Will that happen?
