Coach Brady

August 24th, 2020

“Damn Tom, the way you coach up receivers, the Glazers will hire you to take my place. But I’m not ready for full-time golf yet.”

It’s obvious a factor in the Bucs putting all their eggs in the basket on a 43-year old quarterback like park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring Tom Brady was his experience.

Of course a guy who doesn’t need all his digits to count the years before he is eligible for AARP benefits will have experience.

But nine Super Bowl appearances and six rings? There is a reason Brady is one of the best who ever lived and the Bucs wanted to tap into that.

Last week, when Mike Evans talked to the local Fourth Estate, he had this line that stuck out for Joe in working with Brady.

“When it comes to routes, he is very detailed in how he wants us to run certain routes to protect the throw,” Evans said.

Well now. Why is this interesting to Joe? Aside from the obvious, Arians’ quarterbacks over the years had a knack for picks. YouKnowWho took that to a new level.

But Brady seems determined to temper the chances of a pass being picked. Evans has been in the league, what, six years? And even he didn’t know these tricks Brady taught him about limiting picks.

It is those little things Brady provides which should be invaluable to this offense.

    Why was Winston America’s qb and Brady park violating etc. ? Does Joe has his fave ?

  2. Perimeter Blocker Says:

    Where have the coaches been???

  3. Bucsfanman Says:

    20+ years of high-level experience at the position, Perimeter Blocker!

  4. Cannon Says:

    This ball placement thing wasn’t pushed by coaches because we didn’t have a QB who was accurate enough to make it a realistic goal. Winston has a great arm, but anybody who watched our games would see that he wasn’t great at ball placement.

    Brady, on the other hand, is a stickler for this, so it makes sense that its becoming a focus for our wide receivers.

  5. james west Says:

    wonder where tom learned that? and from whom?

  6. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Winston wasn’t capable of playing to a higher level, so the coaches likely said “why bother?” Don’t forget: The Quarterback Whisperer himself gave up on Winston, to the point all 32 NFL teams didn’t want to risk it like Mr. Biscuit. That says a lot.

    All World Player-Coach, 6 time World Champion, Excellence Demanding, GOAT Franchise Saving QB Tom Brady.

  8. Casual Observer Says:

    Brady’s on field coaching is an unexpected (by some) bonus . Great stuff.

    “When it comes to routes, he is very detailed in how he wants us to run certain routes to protect the throw,” Evans said.

    the difference in qb’s is amazing. one teaches the receivers how to run routes the way he likes them to while the other uses google to figure out the qb position.

    its a great day to be a bucs fan!

  10. AtlBuc Says:

    Cannon, Jameis was GREAT at ball placement. Sometimes. Other times he looked like he was throwing a shotput!

  11. Cannon Says:

    AtlBuc, I hear ya.

    My post wasn’t meant as a shot at Winston. I saw the kid make some incredible throws.

    However, it just wasn’t consistent.

  12. lambchop Says:

    There’s another name for “sometimes accurate”, and that’s backup.

  13. Bobby M. Says:

    Brady must spend a lot time on google…..seems that’s where all the great ones go to improve their football IQ.

  14. Piratic Says:

    @Cannon: That’s a great take. One of the issues that we’ve had for the last 5 years with the current clipboard-holding, settlement-paying, suspension-earning, citation-receiving, squirrel-hating vandal who obstinately tells us to “check your sheet”: Even when he produced on reps that played out much as they were drawn up, he would leave so many yards on the field due to inaccuracy that it was infuriating to see, and watching him continually refuse to hit the guy who was open, all while holding the ball in order to make a “Superman” throw that lacked touch and put the receiver in a very vulnerable position was another sign of how selfish and arrogant he is. He is the posterboy for “Million $ arm, 5 $ head”.

  15. BillyBucFan Says:

    Another name for sometimes accurate is Sporadic and that sums up Jameis.

    No telling hiw much Evans and Godwin made up for poor throws.

    Watch ME13 have his BEST YAC yards as a professional.

  16. AtlBuc Says:


    With Brady’s accuracy, one thing I’m seeing in camp I haven’t seen much is ME catching the ball in stride. With JW , too many times the receivers were not in a position to get YAC. With Brady, I see everyone’s YAC increasing

  17. Youdontdeservetombrady Says:

    This was very funny and completely inaccurate in many ways. –Joe

  18. Dangeruss Says:

    TB12 learned accuracy when he was 7th in the depth chart at Michigan! He won the starting role & beat out phenom Drew Henson when the HC changed the “draws always go to the upper class men!! If you want to watch a young GOAT watch his last game as a Wolverine against Alabama Crimson Toads in an overtime win! He was showing his future Goatness that day!! Let’s GO!! Boycott the NFL if they don’t allow ALL season ticket holders to attend home games!!!!!

  19. PSL Bob Says:

    Evans and Godwin were great despite having to make acrobatic catches all the time. With passes on target this year, YAC are going to be through the roof and the Bigs will be even greater.

  20. SB Says:

    All I know is that we as ‘fans’ are about to witness ‘change’ up-front and close.
    95% of us are gonna Love it! The other 5% were never really Bucs fans anyway

  21. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Play design playcalling coaching

    This is why last year’s Bucs QB went to Harvard QB room in orleans

    Polk county community college Byron Leftwich has failed both Rosen and Winston

    Very simple this season

    How fast will Leftwich headset be unplugged”

  22. Alaskin Assassin Says:

    As a Patriots fan and Brady fan, I’m glad that y’all will have a chance to witness greatness up close. He deserved a team with talent after years of budget players. I hope yall enjoy what he brings to the game as much as wr did! If they play this season, it could be a SB at home for you all! Good luck!

    I have been punished as you have. He apparently thinks its funny and/or he is now doing out of spite because multiple readers have commented about it.

    CHILDISH. Immature. Disrespectful. JW Broken. LAME

    Out route should be angled back.
    Post and corner routes, you should make your break when the defender is on the inside foot closest to you.
    The hook should always happen just as the defender is turning to go down field with you and you turn and break in front of him.
    Slant obviously has to be in front of the LB across the middle
    I played receiver and CB.
    Those are all little things that utilize your body to block out the defender. Even if you don’t catch it or if it’s a bad throw, you are in better position to prevent the interception.

    Believe me, Alaskan Assassin, real fans do appreciate the acquisition of Tom Brady. Our situation is night-and-day in comparison with what we have put with for more than twelve years!.
