Brady Leaves Broncos Frustrated

September 28th, 2020

“Missed me!”

Joe will guess when a non-mobile quarterback like park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring Bucs quarterback Tom Brady gets off passes before a sack, it drives defenders nuts.

It’s one thing to miss on a mobile quarterback. But missing Brady, who is a bit more nimble with the Bucs than he was with the Belicheats, has to drive defenders crazy.

Bradley Chubb seemed to be after the game. The outside linebacker for the Broncos talked about the inability of Denver defenders to get Brady to the ground (except for two times).

“I don’t why it was so tough, but at the end of the day my job is to get to the quarterback and I just have to do that better,” Chubb said.

Perhaps because Brady knows when to get rid of the ball? Perhaps it is his quick release?

The good thing to know is with the Bucs, at times, leaky in pass protection, Brady both knows when to and how to get rid of a pass before he is blasted.

Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians added that the two sacks on Brady were more coverage sacks than errors up front and he praised his offensive linemen for a good afternoon of work.

“No doubt,” Arians said of the solid pass blocking the Bucs had. “Tom felt good [and] thought he could get a ball open somewhere and then got sacked. They were coverage sacks.”

The run blocking is still iffy but if the Bucs can continue to keep Brady upright, this is a very good sign, especially with a rookie right tackle who isn’t playing like a rookie.

    Bradley Chubb not Nick Chubb

    Brady is the best of all time and has always had a good clock in his head. The iffy run blocking is driving me nuts and I see now that Rojo was only part of the problem. Fournette kicked a$$ with lousy Jacksonville last year, so what does that say about the run blocking of our overrated and overpaid offensive line? We won, so no more b!tching from me.

  3. Casual Observer Says:

    Brady had time – most of the time. Fine game.

  4. Buc Bro Says:

    @Jason, it’s JBF don’t expect much when it comes to accuracy. They won’t even credit which joe wrote each 2 paragraph post, do you think they have anyone who edits these posts?

  5. Coburn Says:

    Yeah j noticed a few passes where he took his drop back and almost like could tell immediately nothing there and just kinda threw it near a player’s feet. Figured some people may try to hold it against him but looked like him just being smart. Rarely see that in the past… Even when he took the sacks couldn’t help but wonder what would have happened previously on those plays. Maybe some good, but a lot of bad too

  6. DoooshLaRue Says:

    One of those sacks looked like Brady’s fault to me, but his quick decision making is a very welcome thing.

    Watching the Bucs without constantly expecting some ridiculous interception or fumble is a refreshing change too.

    Wins, not individual stats….. feel best.
    I like Mondays now!

    42-12 BUCS WIN!!!!!

    Bucs have their 1st complete game in a long time….

    Brady is on point….WR/TE/RBs catch the ball…o-line dominates…run game dominates….PLAYCALLING is phenomenal!!!!…

    Defense forces TOs and doesnt let DEN in the endzone….

    SPECIAL TEAMS plays BIG!!!!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!

    i was off on the score….lol…

    run game couldve been better…

    but spot on about everything else…

    GO BUCS!!!!!

    Ah yes Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb rushing the QB on the Broncos

    Sorry Joe couldn’t help myself.

  10. Defense Rules Says:

    Hmmm, seems to be a lot easier to get the ball out fast when using the short passing game instead of always looking to hit the deep one. Brady went 10-for-14 in short passing in the 1st half, and 7-for-9 in the 2nd half it looks like. Went 4-for-9 deep in the game (several other passes weren’t identified as either short or deep). Bottom line though is that his short passing game is still very very good IMO.

  11. Sesteprenelicus Says:

    Brady had all day to throw at times yesterday. Great job by the O-line!

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Did anyone find out about that hands to the face call on Wirfs?……I watched the replay and I simply didn’t see it at all….

    And,I am very good with Brady, the game manager & Gronk, the “blocking” TE…

  13. Lamarcus Says:

    Drinking and dunking all game is kinda boring

  14. Casual Observer Says:

    TBbufan – I agree. Looked like a phony call.

  15. Bucsfanman Says:

    Lamarcus- Do you know what ISN’T boring?! WINNING!

    This offense has yet to start ‘clicking’…just imagine when it does!

  16. SlyPirate541 Says:

    TWO VICTORY MONDAYS IN A ROW!!! Are you kidding?



    Stop the over analysis of the every player on every play for one day. Just ride the wave and let the good vibes sink in. We haven’t been here in a long time.

  17. Rick Says:

    That’s what’s so frustrating about Drew Brees also. He always seems to have that guy five yards past the line of scrimmage who’s only job is to be in the area so he can throw the ball away when he’s in trouble.

  18. Bill M Says:

    Glad we won but Denver is 0-3. The big story was the Bucs defense. The offense is not good enough yet to beat the best teams. Brady looks inconsistent to me. RJ ran hard for the few yards we got. That kid would look great if he had any holes to run thru. LF got nowhere.. If. GODWIN can’t play we struggle on offense against any strong defense. Weak run blocking and only Mike ? Not good.! If you watched Greenbay you saw what a QB with a monster arm looks like! We go only as far as our defense carries us unless qb and run game improve.

  19. Bucamania Says:

    One play stood out to me yesterday. On a screen to ME13 that the defense covered well, Brady just threw it in the ground. JW would’ve thrown it for sure and we would’ve been left shaking our heads. So nice to have some smart QB play.

  20. JGhotier Says:

    Iffy, but I’ll take a 12 carry/100 + plus yard performance and a 13 carry53yd/4.1 avg 2 weeks in a row. Definitely room to improve for sure though. Also need to call runs at better times I feel.

  21. unbelievable Says:

    Pretty sure he was sacked 3 times, not 2.

    And all 3 were actually from holding the ball too long, not from the defense getting there quickly.

    I have a feeling we’ll see less of that as Brady gets more comfortable in the offense.

  22. Mike Says:

    Defense came to hunt and it was great to see Gronk get more involved (though nothing from OJ?). Godwin is a real key for the Bucs offense. Need him to get healthy quick.

    Americas quarterback!

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    For all the talk about the offensive line, go look at the advanced passing stats and how the o-line is doing…

    Number of times hurried… Brady is #34
    Number of hits… Brady is #29
    Number of pressures… Brady is #33
    Number of pressures per attempt… Brady is #33

    Other stats that I find interesting…

    Number of drops… 8, which is tied for #1
    Bad throws … 10.3%, which is #21
    On target throws… 53.3%, which is #19

    Intended air yards… 841, which is #12 (Winston was by far #1 last year)
    Intended airs per attempt… 7.7, which is #17 (Brees is #33 at 4.6)

    Those last two stats, intended air yards and yards per attempt show that Brady is middle of the road – which just backs up what you can see by watching the games, that his arm hasn’t turned into a limp noodle like Brees.

  26. Bill M Says:

    I agree Rod. His pass protection is. above average yet his passing attack looks inconsistent. Too many off target passes in the short to intermediate ranges that should be done deals. And too hesitant to go deep. Hope his confidence level goes up soon. He looks semi depressed quite often. The defense keeps us in the games but the offense is still a work in progress. The Bucs are a solid middle of the pack only because of the degfense. Top tier needs more from the offense. At current level of play we should win most games aganst the weaker teams but struggle against the real contenders. Time will tell, and teams with a great defense and a slightly average but consistent offense have gone to the Superbowl. All the preseason hype raised our expectations really high. My hope is that they win enough to sneak into the playoffs. That would be a huge achievement. Add a few more the draft next year and they could be great.

  27. Nptbuc Says:

    MIKE SAY: “Though nothing from OJ?” Targeted 4 times. 3 catches- one for 33 yards. OJ had one more yard than Gronkowski who had 7 targets. Longest for 10 yds.Just sayin🙂

  28. mark2001 Says:

    Bill…I think some of the off target issue is because of the lack of time together. I heard Dave Moore talk about it a little…expecting someone to flatten the route or turn it up, etc. You get the picture…you have to throw where you expect them to be…not where they are. I think those hiccups will eventually disappear. If they aren’t by midseason, I think we have a problem.

  29. Rod Munch Says:

    Bill M – I don’t think he’s hesitating to go deep, he’s just not Winston and doesn’t have that arm, he also hasn’t played with Evans and Godwin for years. His arm strength is clearly not what it was 10 years ago, but he’s still showing an acceptable NFL arm, and gets a good amount of zip on short passes and has shown good touch on longer passes. I’m a big Winston fan, I still hope they resign him in the offseason somehow, but I want the Bucs to win and I think Brady is so far about where I’d expect him to be considering it’s a new team and new offense and his age.

    I’m with the Joe’s in believing when you get around game 6-8, that’s when we should start to see some comfort with the WRs, if they can actually stay healthy. Mike Evans, to my eye, didn’t look right yesterday, he looked sluggish off the line and it’s making me think his hamstring isn’t fully healed. The Godwin goes down and that’s when the offense came to a halt. The Bucs don’t have any depth at WR and it shows. But the huge downside of Evans and Godwin continuing to be hurt is that every week that keeps happening is possibly adding a week to the total jell time.

    So nice to see the team actually getting better!!! How many coaches have come in here and couldn’t coach them up???…. This is a good team all around!! Arians makes some bone headed decisions on game day but he is old!!….. But if it weren’t for that man we wouldn’t be the team we are right now!! You think all these players would have come here for Koetter … No way!!! Which is a shame really because Koetter was an ok coach just not a head coach!!!
