Pete Prisco doesn't buy Brady as an eroding QB
"Brady remains a star passer. Just look at what he did last season, one year removed from the major knee injury. The perception is he wasn't as good. The numbers say that's a lie. Brady threw for 4,398 yards, 28 touchdown passes and had a completion percentage of 65.7. The yardage total was the second-best of his career. The touchdown passes tied for second best. The completion percentage was the second highest of his career. The only season he had that was better came in 2007, that magical season in which he led the Patriots to a 16-0 regular-season record. Brady had arguably the greatest passing season ever in 2007, throwing for 4,806 yards and 50 touchdown passes, a league record. To think he could duplicate that, even healthy, would be insane. But coming off a shredded knee to play the way he did in 2009 was an exceptional season. Yes, he has Randy Moss and Wes Welker. But he makes the Patriots go. He's why they have three Super Bowl rings during his time with the team."
