Patriots | Tom Brady wants better execution
Mon, 16 Sep 2013 10:09:31 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady said he and his wide receivers need to have better execution in Week 3 after they had more punts (11) than first downs (9) in their 13-10 Week 2 win over the New York Jets. The Patriots converted just four of 18 third downs and Brady completed less than 50 percent of his passes while being out of sync at times with rookie WRs Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins. Both wideouts were targeted a combined 17 times but hauled in only five balls.
Until Danny Amendola (hip) returns to action in a month or so, Dobson and Thompkins are worthy of starting in deeper leagues. Dobson may have the edge over Thompkins in terms of chemistry and trust with Brady after last week, though.
