Joe Montana was never known for his arm strength.

Brady and Brees don't throw that many deep passes either.
In fact, I've already submitted this stat a few times.
The percentage of passes thrown over 20 yards for Schaub, Brady, and Brees are within the vicinity of one another.
Brady was great at throwing deep balls when he had Moss around. Gronk is pretty good at getting downfield in a hurry but he's not Randy Moss. Here are his passing splits from ESPN from 2007:

Code:
BY PASS PLAY	CMP	ATT	YDS	CMP%	AVG	LNG	TD	INT	SACK	RAT	
Pass Thrown Behind Line of Scrimmage	65 	77 	510 	84.4 	6.62 	42 	1 	0 	0 	98.6 	
Pass Thrown 1-10 yds	236 	312 	2,071 	75.6 	6.64 	43 	23 	0 	0 	117.3 	
Pass Thrown 11-20 yds	69 	120 	1,113 	57.5 	9.28 	37 	11 	3 	0 	108.8 	
Pass Thrown 21-30 yds	15 	39 	490 	38.5 	12.56 	69 	7 	3 	0 	93.8 	
Pass Thrown 31-40 yds	6 	13 	256 	46.2 	19.69 	63 	3 	2 	0 	92.6 	
Pass Thrown 41+ yds	7 	17 	366 	41.2 	21.53 	65 	5 	0 	0 	128.1
I'm not ready to say that Brady has "lost his deep ball" or anything like that, but the Pats have pretty much ignored WR since 2007 (going by drafts anyway, I can't really think of a great WR that they've signed in FA since then, Danny Amendola I guess? Yikes).

Anyways I just wanted to point that out. I wonder what Brady could do with a 31 year old Andre Johnson. Probably really dirty things.
