Here's some quick analysis for ya. The first clip is by Dan Orlovsky. He's showing an example of miscommunication between Brady and Dorsett, I'll let him explain that himself.
The 2nd clip is of the play that we all remember as Brady missing a wide open dorsett in the endzone (I gave Brady the blame in the last podcast episode). The all 22 tells a different story. If you watch Dorsett run his route, he stops after making his cut. He looks open, but remember Dorsett is only 5′ 10″. Brady throws a bullet, that linebacker most likely gets a hand on it. Brady floats it and it's most likely getting picked. If Dorsett keeps running THEN he's wide open for an easy TD.
Ik this is a small sample but I'm no longer convinced that a lack of talent is the issue on this offense, it's a lack of communication and timing. They run A LOT of timing routes in this offense. Brady is expecting a certain reciever at a certain spot every time, and that puts a lot of pressure on these young guys.
The good news is that as long as they all stay healthy, this should only get better as the season goes along, especially now that there isn't anymore moving pieces at the reciever position like there was at the trade deadline. Meaning, Brady can now focus on working with these guys, and no one new who comes in, that should help progressing substantially.
What are you thoughts?? 🤔
