Marpet: “It’s Unbelievable”

August 25th, 2020

Tom Brady is tricky and lightning-fast mentally, Ali Marpet explained today, but in one area Brady is grading off the charts.

Asked about Brady’s level of competitiveness following today’s practice, Marpet gushed and said, “It’s unbelievable. … He’s an impressive, driven dude.”

The Bucs’ starting left guard said the veteran savvy of Brady is apparent in how quickly he identifies what he sees in the Bucs defense and how quickly and effectively he communicates that to the offensive line. Marpet marveled at how Brady is seeing things that he isn’t.

And then there’s a way Brady specifically stands out compared to a young quarterback:he way Brady “changes up the cadence, [does] all the tricky veteran stuff that comes with it,” he said.

Joe’s glad to hear how Brady is impressing a Bucs captain and a guy who commands a lot of respects from coaches and teammates.

It might not equate to wins, but it certainly feels great now.

    Was it good coaching in New England all those years or is it innate in the Brady football DNA?

    I tend to think mostly the later – nature over nurture.

    But both matter in life.

    Tom Brady for President 2020. Marpet as Vice President

    Brady is in the conversation for greatest of all time…..Marpet was playing with a QB that is now a 3rd string QB. The differences are going to be night and day in nearly every aspect of the position.

    For all the grief I give JW2 nuthuggers I have Zero doubt that he will be a starter again someday and will be better than he was with us.
    However, he wasn’t ready to get “us” where we needed to be THIS year!
    TB12 IS!
    SB BABY! Let’s Go!

    it’s 20+ years of being a winner which was nurtured by his family at a young age and it then became his nature. He didn’t just become great by himself without help.

    Keep Brady healthy and we’ll have a truly fun season.

    It’s really a shame Jameis Winston isn’t here to learn from Brady. We’re going to be looking for our QB of the future and likely starting from scratch with a rookie. Winston will learn from Brees and make some team competitive for a decade or so. Hopefully Brady stays healthy for a year or two.

    … And Ali Marpet says, “OMG, that dude Brady is so much better than my QBs at Hobart College and J Winston.”

    Thanks for the insight, Ali!!!

    who proofreads yours?

    What makes you think Jameis would learn from Brady? He had a quarterback whisperer and a former NFL quarterback, and still couldn’t figure out how not to throw where he shouldn’t. Somethings just can’t be fixed

    Hope Brady keeps playing for the Bucs well into his 50s.
