Arians on Tom Brady's accuracy. “Other than the deep ball, I think he’s getting confused a few times with the coverage. That might be the cause for some inaccurate balls but I don’t see it at all in practice. We’re not missing the deep ball in practice, that’s for sure.

: “Our secondary for the first time I thought tackled as poorly as we’ve ever tackled in that ballgame. Especially in the first half. We gave up like 70 yards run after catch on five-yard routes. Twice in the second. That’s un-Buc-like for us.

coach Bruce Arians says he doesn't think you can have too many players, but some of those guys came during the season like Antonio Brown and others, so the lack of continuity is an issue.

"We're not missing the deep balls in practice,'' Bruce Arians says of Tom Brady. Says he's just not hit them in games, albeit felt one to Antonio Brown should've been caught.

coach Bruce Arians says Tom Brady doesn't have a confidence problem but at times there may be a lack of trust because of the lack of continuity. He is calling some of his own plays, or picking them, from the sidelines between series.

The loss to the Saints was bad as bad as it gets, but Monday night’s letdown against the Rams was a more subtle and textured horror show, writes.

What Tom Brady doesn’t have is a running back who is a route runner who can consistently catch the football. They won’t play LeSean McCoy. Throwing deep (and wild) into Cover 2 is a bad plan. A shot play with 2 mins and nearly at midfield needing a FG to tie makes no sense.
