Agreed, but how many 1000 yard receivers did the Pats have with Brady throwing to them?

Wes Welker 4 (07, 09, 11, 12)*
Rob Gronkowski 4 (11, 14, 15, 17)
Julian Edelman 3 (13, 16, 19)
Randy Moss 2 (07, 09)*
Brandin Cooks 1 (17)

*Moss and Welker both went over 1000 in 08 but Brady wasn't playing that year.

Brady was a master of spreading the ball around, and even then Edelman is 3rd on that list.

I agree his overall stats don't match up, but as you say he did it on the biggest stage (playoffs and SB). Though if Edelman is even considered, Welker should be higher in the pecking order.
