Judge Brady

July 1st, 2020

Joe remembers when Bucco Bruce Arians said Tom Brady would choose his No. 3 receiver and/or No. 4 and No. 5.

But what else will Brady pick?

Retired NFL quarterback Brady Quinn, who now is an analyst for CBS and SiriusXM NFL Radio, told his radio audience this week that Brady might have a heavy hand in O.J. Howard’s future.

“Tom Brady would be a great judge of his ability,” Quinn said, while speculating Howard will stick around for this season unless the Bucs get a sweet offer or Brady reaches a firm decision on him.

This has previously been a topic on the Ira Kaufman Podcast, where Joe has stated Brady likely will be who chooses the Bucs future of Howard and Cameron Brate, since there’s no reason for Tampa Bay to keep both if Rob Gronkowski proves healthy and committed to his NFL career.

Joe wonders how an abbreviated offseason might increase Brady’s influence on personnel.

What if Brady tells Arians in mid-August that he doesn’t have a reliable pass-catching running back? Or suppose Brady gets all cryptic and and pops an Instagram post that reads, “Only thing we have to fear is the running game.”

Joe certainly trusts Brady when it comes to offensive personnel for the 2020 Bucs, and Joe hopes Bucs officials do, as well.

    We need Antonio Brown and whoever else Brady wants here. Period. Whoever Brady sees fit and BA needs to take a step back and let Brady do his thing because when it all falls apart he is blaming Brady anyway

  3. Casual Observer Says:

    Methinks some doth protest the running game too much. At least until we see the results in some (even pre-season) games.

    So much for the sheep’s wrong narrative of the coaches coaching up and fixing the roster!!!!!!! Now they have thrown in the towel on the coaches fixing anything, and want Brady to be in charge of personnel????? He is already the QB and defacto OC!!!!!!!!!! Maybe Brady should coach special teams too!!!!!!!! To the sheep’s credit, it can not be worse then what we all saw last year!!!!!!!!!!!

    go bucs!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey el buco if we are the sheep then are you the shepherd? If so then what are your qualifications for being a shepherd? By the way you rant repeatedly about the negative aspects of this team I don’t believe you could lead a hungry mosquito to greener pastures. You really are making yourself look like complete clown.
    El buco the clown….hmmmm I kinda like the sound of that
    PMA Go Bucs

    “Blah, blah,blah, I’m a big dumb azz with nothing but negative dribble running out of my pie hole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!……blah, blah, blah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!“, said El Dicko Realisto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Craig Says:

    I think it will be a toss-up between Miller and Johnson for number three.

    How O.J.’s season works depends on when and if Gronk gets hurt. Brate will probably have a better season, as he will not just be an end zone threat.
