Tom Brady critical of own performance

Tom Brady has insisted that his teammates are not to blame for The Patriots' offensive issues - and the star has instead suggested that he is to blame for the current issues. 

The team are currently 3-0, but they're continuing to rely on defense and special teams.

However, Brady has quashed suggestions that it's down to the team's receiving corpse and has criticised his own performance. 

Brady is frustrated with his poor interception throw from Sunday's game, and believes if he improves, The Patriots will improve in the Red Zone. 

When speaking to reporters, Brady said: “I think throwing an interception right to a strong safety last week doesn’t help.

“Especially two plays before, I had a wide open guy. I think plays like that are more the problem.

"I have to a good job finding the open guys, guys that are running free and then hit them. That will help our red zone offense more than anything.” 

Brady believes The Patriots could have scored more points so far and believes execution must be improved and he has once again pointed the finger at his own performance. 

He continued by saying: “We’ve definitely left some points on the board, just poor execution.

“I’ve been one of the main culprits. Hopefully I try to improve that. You have to get down there and score points. Especially when you play good teams, you can’t leave points out there.

"Like last week, we had a great opportunity for seven points. Not only did we not get seven, we didn’t get any. You have to be able to capitalize on scoring opportunities.”

Brady will hope for improvement in The Patriots' next game as they take on the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome.
