Tom Brady has just looked average this year after putting up great statistical numbers in previous years.

This year, Brady has struggled and he doesn’t look like the player fans saw lead one of the best offensives in the league last season.

Shaun King of NBC Sports Network joined Tom E. Curran on Quick Slants to discuss what is affecting Brady.

“I think Tom has played below average football this season,” King said. “And that’s not my opinion, that’s what the film study tells me. These are facts.”

In past seasons, teams have found out one of the ways to beat Brady and the Patriots is to get pressure on the quarterback, which has happened this year.

“I’ve said since he came back from the knee injury that anytime you get pressure around the New England quarterback he tends to get skittish,” King said. “Now, I don’t know why it has fallen apart for him this year, maybe its age, maybe it’s the fact that his confidence his down because he is unfamiliar. But his performance has been substandard especially by Tom Brady standards.”
