“Up and down. That’s what it looks like to me,” Brady said, according to USA Today. “We could probably do everything better.”

Brady was also asked how concerned he was with the offense and whether the team’s issues would eventually just work themselves out on their own.

“I don’t think it matters what I think. It matters what we do,” he said.

Brady elaborated more on WEEI radio’s “The Greg Hill Show” on Monday.

“I was very happy we won. I just wish we would play better offensively. We’ve just got to go do it. I don’t think it’s not about talking about it. It’s about doing it,” he said. “It’s trying to get the best we can out of our offense. We need more production and to score more points. ...It’s just frustration with the offense. We’re just trying to grind them out. I’m happy we won on the road. At the same time, I just wish we’d score more points.”
