Tom Brady was right: Joshua Dobbs might not survive ‘mediocre’ game

The “mediocrity in today’s NFL” that seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady described last week was on full display during Monday Night Football between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. Joshua Dobbs threw four interceptions and now head coach Kevin O’Connell wants to “evaluate.”

Dobbs, 28, and Bears quarterback Justin Fields combined for just 380 passing yards and one touchdown, so both sides were mediocre, to say the least. They also turned the ball over a collective six times and were sack on five occasions.

Fields, 24, fumbled the football on back-to-back drives in the fourth quarter and the Vikings still managed to lose thanks to a late field goal.

“We’re going to take a look and evaluate,” O’Connel said when asked if Vikings will make a change at QB. “As much as he’s done some really good things for us, he’s still getting comfortable in our pass game.”

O’Connel, 38, probably wants to give rookie QB Jaren Hall some snaps before the season is over to gauge what they’ll do next year.
Alex Smith calls out Tom Brady
Brady, 46, spoke out against the mediocrity in the league during an appearance on “The Stephen A. Smith Show” and many people agreed with him.

Former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is one of the only people who did not agree with Brady and called him out for playing in an uncompetitive division throughout his New England Patriots tenure.

Brady’s point was that the modern NFL places the burden of protecting offensive players on the defense, so quarterbacks no longer have to throw their receivers out of harm’s way.

Smith, 39, is also right about Brady playing in the most uncompetitive division in NFL history, but two things can be true, and today’s rules are ruining the game.
