GMEN HQ: The Giants have always made life miserable for Tom Brady. How has he looked in TB and how do you feel about his fit in Bruce Arians’ offense?
Pewter Plank: I’m sure Brady is licking his chops to finally play against the Giants defense compared to some of those others that he’s had to play against in the past.
There was certainly a development curve, but Brady has looked better in the last two games than really at any point last season when he was with the Patriots, at least in my opinion. He’s throwing accurate passes and he has more playmakers than he knows what to do with.
One of the biggest concerns about Brady in Bruce Arians’ offense was the question of if he could throw the deep ball. He’s been able to do that with great touch and effectiveness over the last couple of weeks- and really, even before that- and that’s been a very reassuring sign to Tampa Bay fans in hopes of getting back to the postseason for the first time in 12 years.
