Brady is done. Hes no longer the fire breathing dragon he used to be. When he refused to run for that first down because he saw Ngata bearing down. A part of him died. Not to mention he just saw his boy Ridley get slumped.
Its not the 28 points, its the way they happened. Brady sat on the sideline for almost the entire 3rd, and watched his team give up 14 on two long drives. Then the fumble happens, and he has to watch another 7. By the time the offense was able to actually go out and try to put up a drive, they are down 15 against a D that was not going to give up those points.
Brady didn't play great, but the D was horrendous when they needed to show up. Which I expected.
