NFL analyst dissects reason for Tom Brady’s poor showing in 2022 NFL season

Tom Brady has had an uneven start to the NFL season and Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe thinks he knows why. Despite going 2-0 on the season, Tampa Bay looked shaky on offense as Brady didn’t look his usual.

On Fox Sports undisputedSharpe and Skip Bayless discussed the Buccaneers’ start to the season and Brady’s performances in the first two games.

Sharpe argued that Tom Brady’s guns aren’t what they used to be and with some of his teammates injured he needs help more than ever.

“The thing is, they need bodies. Mike Evans could potentially get a game ban. You won’t have Godwin. They think they’ll get Godwin sometime in the near future, they just don’t know when.

“Julio we don’t know the extent of this injury so we don’t know for how long but he could be back this week, it could be three weeks or four. So you kinda go skip the receiver out of body.

“I mean, you’ve got Gage, you’ve got Perriman, you’ve got Scotty Miller, I think you might have a different recipient, you probably only dress six or seven recipients. But here’s my thing Skip, the only thing I said is that as Tom gets older he needs help around him, he needs better players around him, you have to get better players around you.

Is Tom Brady showing signs of decline?

It’s natural for a 45-year-old quarterback to expect some sort of decline, right? But we’re talking about the “GOAT” here, he’s no ordinary 45-year-old. In his first two games of the year, Tom Brady threw for just 402 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

His completion percentage is 59% and he’s only averaging 6.6 yards per attempt. It’s only two games but the seven-time Super Bowl champion has gotten off to a slow start. Are alarm bells ringing in Tampa Bay? Probably not because they are 2-0 up.

With the offense struggling, they still found a way to win both games, which certainly bodes well if Brady finds his rhythm. Some have pointed to his off-field issues with his wife Gisele as the reason for his poor performances.

It’s hard to imagine that his off-field problems didn’t affect his game. We’ll likely never know, but TB12 certainly doesn’t seem to be business as usual in the early weeks of the NFL season.

Does it have to do with his lack of recipients or his marital problems? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, he’s not himself on the football field.
