Yes, he beat the Steelers in week 9. Yes, his Patriots are 7-2 and atop the AFC East. But, despite putting up huge numbers on Sunday, Tom Brady is no longer the playing like superstar we have grown accustomed to in New England.
The stats support the claim. Just past the halfway point of 2013, Tom Brady has a completion percentage well below 60 percent, an all-time low. He also is on pace to miss the 25 touchdown milestone for only the third time in his career.
The 36-year old captain has shown some glimpses of excellence. He led the Patriots to a big win against Atlanta, and his four touchdown performance in Week 9 were reminiscent of 2007. So, while plenty of people will start to say that "Tom Brady busted the slump and is going to turn it around."
I say "Probably not."
