As we saw in Week 13, the New England Patriots have some passing problems. If they want to fix those they need Tom Brady to trust his wide receivers.
Now the main reason the Patriots have been struggling is due to their lack of offensive prowess. It’s been hard for Tom Brady and Co. to get anything going.

All of the blame can’t be put on Brady’s shoulders. He has made some mistakes but so has everyone on the offense.
But there is one thing that I think Tom Brady needs to work on. He needs to start trusting his receivers.
We all know how hard it is to gain Brady’s trust. If a rookie runs one route wrong Brady will act like he doesn’t exist.
When watching Brady you can see that he has his favorites. This season he has relied way too much on Julian Edelman.
Now this won’t be easy for Brady. This is how he has acted his entire career.
Also, New England’s batch of wide receivers isn’t the greatest. After Julian Edelman, there is quite the dropoff.
If New England wants to be successful the offense needs to figure something out. The running game definitely won’t be changing so the passing game needs to lead the way. This has been the way of the New England Patriots for most of their dominant run.
