He's healthy and is clearly a huge part of this offense now.
He had more catches and targets than Gronk and out-snapped Chris Hogan. He understands the playbook now and has been in multiple spots where he could've caught a touchdown. This is more than him just being a big-play threat.
Even with the DPI, Josh Gordon still came very close to hauling in this deep ball from Brady. Would have been another highlight-reel touchdown for him. pic.twitter.com/z0Hhvc6EdG— Zack Cox (@ZackCoxNESN) October 15, 2018
Brady himself is thrilled with Gordon's play. Not only does he think he's been impressive, but he said his new wideout can get even better.
On Gordon (63 snaps), Brady reiterated some of what he said last night: "For him to be in there as many plays [as he was], in my view, is so impressive...I think the best is ahead of us if we juts keep working at it."— Phil Perry (@PhilAPerry) October 15, 2018
With more snaps come more targets. With more targets are going to come more catches and scores.
Belichick on Josh Gordon: "I would just say his role is expanding weekly and we'll just see how it all plays out."— Doug Kyed (@DougKyed) October 16, 2018
Brady is right, the best has yet to come.
