Chris Gasper joins Felger & Mazz and says if the Patriots want to win another Super Bowl, they won't be able to do it with their current makeup, which puts too much pressure on Tom Brady.
Gasper also throws some interesting trivia. How many playoff touchdowns did Brady throw in his first Super Bowl-winning season? We'll cue up the music while you think it over... Ready?
In fact, the first time he threw multiple touchdowns in a playoff game was in the Super Bowl against the Panthers (he threw three).
What does that tell us?
That the Patriots should play the Panthers more often? Possible, but not what we're going for.
Gasper says it should tell us that when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls, it wasn't all on the shoulders on Brady.
"Until they get the running game to a point where they can use it, and it's reliable in the playoffs, and when teams go to the nickel they can contend with that, and they get to a point where the defense can come up and make stops, I don't think it matters what Brady does."

Bart Hubbuch explains that his article was not a Robert Kraft ‘hit piece’ it was mot to expose the NFL’s hypocrisy and push toward legalizing gambling.
A member of the jury that acquitted Aaron Hernandez of double-murder said jurors were invited to Hernandez’s funeral by defense attorney Jose Baez, The Boston Herald reported.
Hernandez, the former Patriots tight end who was already serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd when he was acquitted in the 2012 double-murder in Boston, killed himself in his prison cell last week. His funeral was in his hometown of Bristol, Connecticut on Monday.
One juror told the Herald that Baez offered to pay for bus to have jury attend funeral.
More from the Herald report:
“I was invited, but I decided ultimately not to go,” said Robert Monroe, one of 12 jurors who on April 14 acquitted Hernandez of the murders of Cape Verdean immigrants Daniel de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28. Both were living in Dorchester.
“I received a message, if any of the jurors wanted to go to the Aaron Hernandez funeral, that [Hernandez’s attorney] Jose Baez would rent a bus to get us back and forth,” Monroe told the Herald today.
