Tom Brady describes Patriots offense as "graduate-level"

Its no secret that the Patriots offense is a very challenging and complex offense to understand. Theres a long list of receivers who could tell you that because they weren't able to master it and succeed in New England. Starting with Chad Ochocinco, Brandon Lloyd, and Joey Galloway.

Tom Brady cut his interview short after an abundance of annoying questions from WEEI’s “Kirk & Callahan” about his personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, but before he ended the interview, Brady spoke on a question that has been unanswered for a bit of time. Of course the Patriots offense is hard, but why? Why can't all-time receivers like Ochocinco understand this complex playbook?

“I would say receiver is a challenging position in our offense,” Brady told WEEI. “We have a very graduate-level type of offense, and it takes a lot to learn. It’s just not easy. Not easy for rookies, not easy for veterans. It’s a lot of work. It’s time-consuming.

“If we’re going to be effective on offense, we’ve got to have a lot of people out there that can process information quickly and make adjustments and everything changes week to week. Everything’s a big adjustment, and guys who handle it and compete and have the skills do a good job, and that’s typically guys who — we’ve had a few over the years — that can pick it up and understand it."

Brady went on to describe that in most passing plays, the Pats don't use a regular route tree but use "concepts." Receivers arent just learning one route but have to know every route on the play.
