If you want to know why Tom Brady seems tightly wound these days, Rodney Harrison thinks he has the answer.

"He's frustrated because he feels like every time they have the ball, they have to go all the way and score a touchdown," the former Patriots safety told Profootballtalk.com's Mike Florio Sunday night. "Because he knows that he's playing on a really bad defense."

Nor does Harrison see things improving.

"That defense doesn't seem like it's going to get any better," he said. "They've got wide receivers playing safety, wide receivers playing nickel back . . . You cannot survive in the league with wide receivers doing that."
