Tom Brady Arrives; Clyde Christensen Won’t Social Distance (Videos)

July 23rd, 2020

“Ed, why exactly are we paying for a quarterback coach this season?”

[UPDATE: 10:37 a.m.]

How dare a maskless Clyde Christensen get well within six feet of Tom Brady on One Buc Palace property when it’s not an official practice.

Team Glazer needs to call the Bucs’ QB coach in for an official spanking.

Maybe Adrian Peterson has a switch they can borrow.

You can see the horror shows in the ABC and FOX-13 videos below.

Yes, Joe’s being sarcastic, but Joe’s also trying to let the folks at One Buc Palace realize now the scrutiny that’s inevitably coming this season, which could lead to fines and game suspensions in the wacky politically-correct, target-Tom-Brady world of Roger Goodell.

Joe hopes Team Glazer pre-empts Goodell and fines Christensen today and makes that public. Send a message to the league that they won’t be able to comfortably swoop in and punish the Bucs later without looking like morons. Play the politics, Bucs; maybe it’ll preserve a regular-season victory later.

After all, if we’re to believe a mask violation is a borderline public heath emergency, then maybe the Bucs should actually treat it like one. Otherwise, don’t expect the fans in the stadium to give a flying crap about the mask rule.

    Really, Joe?
    You’ve got nothing better to do?
    Sooo, you don’t want to see Brady arrive? You prefer the Bucs get hit with some sort of mask penalty before a meaningful game? If we’re going to live in this nonsense-loving world, where Tom Brady is a prime target (see The War On Tom Brady), then Joe is all about getting ahead of things and ensuring that something stupid doesn’t torpedo the Bucs’ Super Bowl chances.–Joe

    Only the low IQ, mask IQ are falling for that BS!

  3. Anonymous Says:

    Starting to feel more real everyday, Brady is a buc

  4. D-Rome Says:

    I agree with this article Joe. All Bucs personnel and coaches need to be beyond reproach this season. The Bucs don’t want or need negative attention from Commisar Goodell.

  5. Alanbucsfan Says:

    I get your point, Joe, but I would prefer to limit giving the nonsense a platform

  6. Steven007 Says:

    Humans are weird. Man shows up for work, helicopters hover, cameramen lurk, reporters salivate, just to glimpse a man arriving for work. What a world. And this is not a knock Joe. This is what we hope you would do. We are fans after all. A word that comes from the word fanatic. Still weird nonetheless. All this over a man arriving at work.

  7. mark2001 Says:

    So let the wheels come off this season. We can always take a trip down memory lane with America’s 30 mil. dollar QB.

    Life doesn’t stop ! Live life to the fullest folks , not in fear of a media driven hoax !

  9. FanO’Bucs Says:

    Nothing to fear but fear itself!

    Go Bucs!!

  10. mark2001 Says:

    Yeah Dlavid… living life to the fullest should be the objective. In this day and age, it means is getting a good education, making good money and retiring early, enjoying your great lake home and sitting in a nice boat on a lake, angling for Muskies, while numbskulls deny there is a virus, and drop like flies. Life is great.

  11. mark2001 Says:

    Actually, I think the Packers or KC will win the SB this year. Why? Because they will likely stay among the healthiest of teams, mostly playing in Northern cities and smaller markets where they believe in Covid…hence a pretty good team in a part of the country where the citizenry is mostly buying in, trying to control the disease.

  12. Roy T. Buford Says:

    “Play the politics, Bucs; maybe it’ll preserve a regular-season victory later.”

    It’s a lot more than that Joe. If guys are careless, can lead to someone getting the COVID and testing positive at the very least…at worst, a spread that sidelines many key players and derails the season. That’s not playing politics–it is trying to use comment sense about a legit health emergency. If Clyde doesn’t know that…he’s a fool.

    Now, that said…if he already have COVID…can he spread it? Hmmmm. We know some did have it in June.

  13. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Is it true that Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx are TB12’s personal medical screeners?

  14. VdubVW Says:

    Fear is a darkroom where negatives develop

  15. james west Says:

    since basically the town of greenbay, and it’s fans own the packers, are they going to allow a full stadium at the start of the season? i know it’s not bucs related but i would like to know

  16. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

  17. mark2001 Says:

    James…They told their season ticket holders to prepare for between a reduced numbers of fans to no fans in the stand for this season. Last I heard at most they were thinking 15% capacity… about 12 thousand fans.

  18. Youngbucs Says:

    I’m more upset about the Adrian Peterson reference. I’ve never seen the same done to Jameis here🤔🤔🤔🤔

  19. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    “You prefer the Bucs get hit with some sort of mask penalty before a meaningful game?” – Joe

    A stern talking to and a first warning might be in order, but there is no way the NFL will start handing out fines yet. They understand it will take a week or so for teams to get the hint across to players.

    But frankly, if the test results are available immediately, then they both knew they were clear anyway.

  20. Casual Observer Says:

    I think everyone in this picture should be more careful. No high fives. And wear your masks. Glad to see this going on but a lot is at risk here. Hoping for the best and glad to see the “action”.

  21. D-Rome Says:

  22. Jaymiss Pick6 Again Says:

    Shame on you Clyde – totally irresponsible. Hahaha..Adrian Peterson reference!

  23. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Come on Mark…numbskulls that deny ”dropping like flies”? Maybe in nursing homes where a particular governor of a Northern State who allowed positive patients back into the elderly nursing home population (yet gets praised for handling “the sickness”…go figure)? In the younger, generally healthy, population that would include most pro athletes the fatality rate is statistically very low. I think the NFL should respect the rights of players and coaches to chose for themselves. Wear a mask if a player or coach feels they or their families are at a higher risk, and hopefully not fine those who feel they or their family are low risk and choose not to walk around with a 6’ measure and underwear mask every moment they’re in public. We can all agree that at some point something will eventually kill each one of us, so try to live a full life and appreciate every day for the gift it is.

  24. mark2001 Says:

    140 thousand American dead and counting…Only lost three times that much in WWII. Yeah…dropping like flies.

    Every day is a gift…and stupid to throw that gift way and future days due to irresponsible behavior. Sure…this body will eventually die…but no sense in speeding up the process for no good reason.

  25. Alll lives matter Says:

    I’m sure Clyde Christensen and Tom Brady tested negative for the Chinese/Biden-Pelosi virus. Now that they’re in a controlled environment together after test results why the heck is it imperative they wear a mask? This is ridiculous and Joe is pushing this ridiculous narrative. It seems you missed a lot of what Joe wrote here. Joe wants to win a Super Bowl, not sure what you motivation is. –Joe

  26. mark2001 Says:

    BTW toes…you miss the entire purpose of the masks…to keep from infecting others. So if one chooses not to wear the mask, they may get the disease, which is unfortunate but increasingly probable. But they may transmit the disease to dozens of other people. The purpose of the mask is to primarily avoid the later. The NFL understands that. The medical community understands that. The uninformed or numbskulls don’t.

  27. DoooshLaRue Says:

    When will all this madness end?

    Probably when everyone gets sick of smelling their own breath!

  28. Nick Says:

    lol, why are you guys getting mad at Joe?

    They are media, this is what the media in this country has come to.

    Stirring the big pot for clicks.

    Joe is no different, they do it everytime they say Brady’s name.

    The part I love is when they claim to be true Buc’s fans. What a load of crap.

  29. JimmyJack Says:

    Good point about the Glazers getting out in front of it Joe. But I also
    think they can let the NFL use us as a whipping child and use it as a advantage…….After all Tom Brady has made a living off of using scrutiny as a rally call and getting it to unify the team……….In the end I think the Glazers should do see this as a football decision and defer it to the football guy. Bruce Arains knows how to play this I bet.

    The key is a strong locker room…..Storng enough where no outside source can penetrate it.

    GO BUCS!!

  30. bucsfan951 Says:

    come on, you don’t think these guys haven’t already been tested prior to this? i’m sure they were tested yesterday and already have the results.

    but yes, in today’s world, if you don’t wear a mask, you are called stupid and uneducated. so coaches and players, put the damn mask on so we don’t have to listen to the smart and educated complain. i am tired of hearing the bs!

  31. Bucsfanman Says:

    DoooshLaRue- The “mask breath” struggle is real!!!
    In a way, you almost WANT to be 6 ft apart after smelling your own breath!

    Eureka! Anyone want in on a million-dollar idea?! Peppermint “flavored” masks!
    See! Then it will be cool to be masked!

    Love the “tough-guy” attitude by some! Please raise your hand if you would like some virus in you. Any virus.
    Yeah, me neither.

  32. bojim Says:

    Just do what you’re supposed to do and move on. Less sickness sounds like it might be a good thing. Sheez

  33. Barbosa Says:

    Queue Mr Iverson ; “ We talkin bout practice”

  34. JimmyJack Says:

    Bojim all good if you wanna say what others are supposted to do. But I better not catch you walking within 6 feet of anybody in public just to save yourself a few steps. And dont you dare think about grocery shopping during peak hours if you can avoid it. And dont even get me started on trips to a convenience stores…….Now if you are running late, fine, otherwise when you go to get your morning cup of Joe you better be using those thing called windows and relax for a minute in you vechicle if you see an elderly person getting served. It’s for the greater good.

    Now, dont be upset to think I’m singling you out. For all I know you are a bastion of safekeeping over covid……I’m only using you as a sounding board for others that read. Because for every bastion of safety out there are hundreds who think wearing a mask gives them some divine power to tell other what they should be doing……..While every other step they take they could give a crap what effects they make on the world around them. Perhaps they just arent smart enough but I call them dirty little spreaders. Hyprocrites.

  35. ©MadMax Says:

    You know, Ive been enjoying my life so much more w/o drama. All of this covid drama, sports drama, burn/loot/murder drama…i peek in now and then and remember why im like this… why i cut cable and cut ALL of this BS out of my life. I’ll peek back in around september….au revoir

  36. mark2001 Says:

    951..pretty sure they were tested. I read 59 players in the league tested positive a couple days ago, but I’d imagine not them….so far. Of course, if they just contacted it they still could test negative and have it. And since the teams aren’t quarantined, that can change from day to day.

  37. Buccan8 Says:

    More to Steven007’s point, this isn’t even man showing up to work. This is man showing up at LabCorp to attempt a wiz quiz before being allowed to go to work.

    I bet some crazed New Englander transplant would pay the Glazers enough cheddah to afford Clyde’s fines to get one of those used swabs that has a tag with TB12’s name on it!

    Shoot, I’m tempted myself! It’s creepy, sure, but it’s the best piece of memorabilia that captures the juxtaposition of our offseason glory of sighting Brady against the #ItsABucsLife misery of a global pandemic that threatened the season! And talk about a conversation piece!!

  38. mark2001 Says:

    “The key is a strong locker room…..Storng enough where no outside source can penetrate it.”

    Unless you plan to quarantine them in there, something can penetrate it…and it is called Covid-19.

  39. JimmyJack Says:

    Mark sorry you are wrong. You took my comment out of context. I was talking about the mentality of the locker room. Was not talking about something physically penetrating the Locke room…….Though that was assumed. My bad for not clarifying.

  40. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Well I realize I’m eating my “digital breath” here, but the deaths are disproportionally in the elderly, pre-existing health issue crowd. So no, not everyone are dropping like flies. Plus there are questions of how deaths are categorized…have a heart attack but have a positive COVID test, you could be counted as a COVID death depending on how your area is counting. As for masks, I’m actually aware of the rational. There are scientific studies saying cloth masks reduce larger droplets from sneezing/coughing yet do very little to stop smaller aerosolized particles (which science is now recognizing as a way it spreads). So yes, if everyone were wearing a N95 or better mask I’d say the masks probably have more of an impact, what most are wearing though are a piece of cloth that’s just enough to satisfy legal compliance requirements in their area or a means for some to feel safer. FWIW I live in NY, so I went through the same initial fear and “will I or my loved ones die?” back in March and April that some of you are now wrestling with in Florida…until “flatten the curve” became lockdown until vaccine. You gotta keep living life.

  41. Daniel Says:

    The video shown is why FL continues to have tons of new cases and a high positive rate. Put on a mask and keep 6 feet. It’s not that hard.

  42. mark2001 Says:

    Toes.. all ages are dying…yes the elderly disproportionally. And they are every bit as much American’s as you are. People often don’t die directly from the disease that ravages their body and leaves them vulnerable to another medical issue. Based upon that logic, you could say no one ever dies from the flu…it is the pneumonia or some other issue that manifests from the disease and results in their demise. Same thing with most terminal illnesses. Your logic doesn’t hold water.

    And again, you miss the point. There are few preventative measures we have, and a mask does help stop those droplets. So only a fool would refuse to use any reasonable method available to slow down the spread, even in part.

    And if you can’t live life without close association in restaurants, bars, and other risky behavior, I would say you have little to live for. But that is a personal judgment, and I’d say, each to their own. Just try to mitigate the rapid expansion of the virus. And masks help.

  45. bucsfaninoregon Says:

    Joe, have you noticed that if you put up a thread even remotely related to the virus your activity is about 3-4 times more than topics like “Our best WR”?
    Maybe some day you could put out a book on some of more idiotic posts.

    My suggestion: “When will all this madness end?

    Probably when everyone gets sick of smelling their own breath!”

  46. Dandy Don’s Ghost Says:

    Joe, it is sad that you have to be overly cautious due to the war on TB12. However, it is what it is. Hopefully, they will wear stupid masks. With only 59 players having contracted the ‘sickness’ with no evidence of anyone being hospitalized or having long term effects, it looks like we’re going to have a season!

  47. Adam Lakers Carolla Says:


    if you’re under 70 you have a 0.04% chance of dying from this virus…i’ll take those odds, and you can stay home and put on your mask. getting covid19 MIGHT make you feel like spit for a few days but being a pu$$y is a life sentence.

  48. mark2001 Says:

    Dan…too early to see how those 59 guys turn out. Most don’t go into the hospital until they are well into the disease, and that news is only a couple days old…posted it a couple days ago. Hope they all turn out well.

  49. CalBucsFan Says:

    So who’s the guy that gave TB a hug in the SkyFox video??? And Christensen, why the hell are you picking up TB’s mask when he drops it and then handing it to him?!?!

    Wake up people, all of the players will be taking enough risk as it is between the lines, will you PLEASE social distance and mask-up outside the lines!

  50. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Can you guys tone down the COVID talk? That way, maybe Mark2001 will actually have a football take instead of the constant gloom and doom posts. No offense Mark, but you have more than made your point and now it’s like living though the movie Groundhog Day.

  51. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Sheesh I rarely waste my time arguing with people here but damn Mark, do you even read before spouting off? Nobody said the elderly aren’t as important but my point was in context of not getting to bent over Brady or Christensen not wearing a mask for a brief interaction. You were the one who said people are dropping like flies, which simply isn’t true for most segments of the US population. As for bars not opening…while you might not see the impact that shutting that industry (or gyms, or until a few days ago malls) down I know many wait staff, bartenders, musicians, etc that rely on that industry and want to get back to work but aren’t being allowed. It’s really a kick in the ass when the governor in NY keeps those people from earning a livelihood yet says virtually nothing about large gatherings of protesters potentially spreading it around NY…odd. I recall you posting that you are up in the high peaks in the Adirondacks for now, so I assume you are continually wearing your mask while hiking three thousand thousand plus feet above sea level? Im not ambitious enough to find your post saying when you got up to NY, but I’m assuming if it was recently you followed the mandatory two week self quarantine before you went hiking? Wouldn’t want to spread disease, right?

    Hope you keep that sarcasm when Clyde gets Brady sick and ruins another Buc offense.

    That would be quite a lot of work. Some posters might even warrant their own chapter. We all know who.
    And the chapter on politics would be ghastly, for all involved.

    To make it easier and improve the quality of material, perhaps a book of the best of the best?

  55. gp Says:

    Oh, and GMFB had someone predict that Brady will throw 55 touchdowns this season
    Sounds like a good prediction poll to put up
    Kinda hard to get all political about that!

  56. mark2001 Says: is the deal…when the topic isn’t about it, I won’t bring it up. But when it is, I will. And if you don’t want to hear it discussed, avoid the articles dealing with it. Fair enough?
