Troll Report: Moss was a poor option for Brady
Cold, Hard Football Facts for Oct 10, 2010
Fascinating email we got Monday from reader and CHFF Troll Kenny West (aka, DeepThreat).
It shows Tom Brady's passer rating when targeting six different receivers this year. His performance when targeting Randy Moss? Dead last on the list.
Rob Gronkowski: 6 for 7, 62 YDS, 2 TD, 0 INT – 205.7*
Aaron Hernandez: 18 for 20, 240 YDS, 0 TD, 0 INT - 127.1
Wes Welker: 26 for 34, 217 YDS, 3 TD, 0 INT – 121.8
Brandon Tate: 11 for 14, 135 YDS, 0 TD, 0 INT - 107.7
Julian Edelman: 4 for 5, 14 YDS, 0 TD, 0 INT - 80.4
Randy Moss: 9 for 22, 139 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT - 70.1
Like we said last week, great wide receivers are nice, but typically little more than hood ornaments on an offense. And as the Chief Troll said at the end of last season, the Patriots might be better off without him.
It will be interesting to see how BrettFavre fares with Moss as a target Monday night against the Jets. As we stated in our real and spectacular Week 5 picks, the Cold, Hard Football Facts see a recipe for disaster.
* Passer rating calculated without caps that artificially limit a so-called "perfect" passer rating to 158.3.
