Brady: Pats’ Problem Is Execution, Not WRs

Patriots_Tom_Brady_2012 [1]Four days after one of the worst statistical performances of his career, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said Monday that the team’s offense, which has been hurt by injuries at the skills positions, needs to improve its execution.

With three top receiving targets missing Thursday, Brady struggled throughout a 13-10 victory over the New York Jets, completing less than 50 percent of his passes and running an offense that converted just 4 of 18 third downs and had more punts (11) than first downs (9).

Brady, who was visibly frustrated at times during the game, was particularly out of sync with rookie receivers Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins. The first-year players were targeted a combined 17 times but came up with just five receptions.
