Ugly Record Within Reach

September 15th, 2020

Is he (W)right?

Since Joe started this here website in August of 2008, Joe has posted close to 41,000 stories (what other Bucs publication can say that?).

Without research, Joe can count on one hand how many times Joe has typed the name “Matt Schaub.” Yet it seems Tom Brady is on the cusp of tying an NFL record held by Schaub.

Nick Wright of “First Things First,” seen and heard weekday mornings on FS1, brought up that Brady is one game away from matching a Schaub record not even the hated Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston has.

That would be if Brady throws a pick-six against Carolina in Game 2, it will match Schaub for the NFL record of four-straight games with a pick-six.

Wright has been saying for months that Brady is washed up and he was not a believer that Brady is the Bucs savior, though Wright did believe Brady would make the Bucs better.

You can see Wright’s take below in the FS1 video.

    I counted 4 Super Bowl wins among all those names, and Foles won it for Philly, not Wentz. Brady has 6.

    Brady will be fine and the Bucs will bounce back! There’s never been a QB that spent 20 years in 1 system, then went to a new team and started with hardly any practices and no preseason games. Sunday was sloppy, by the whole team, but there were also flashes of brilliance too. By October Brady and the offense will be hitting on all cylinders.

  3. Bucsfanman Says:

    You know what? That’s what these talking heads are supposed to do. They sit there ruminating over unrelated, irrelevant stats so that they can have a “take” or sound clever.
    Brady’s 43, oh what a revelation! I never knew that 40 was old in the NFL! (sarcasm off)
    I’ll counter the loudmouth beak up there with this question: How many of those QBs RIGHT NOW would you take over Tom Brady with the loss at NO and at 43?
    Put that list in your pipe and smoke it!

    Overreaction I see the hate flowing Brady’s chip and the team chip on the shoulder has to be massive

  5. adam from ny Says:

    maybe he lost a little zip on his ball and they’re coaching defenders up to jump those out routes…

    who knows…

    brady is like an old crafty starting pitcher losing his fastball speed…

    he will do what he has to do to work with his potentially eroding tools, if necessary, and reinvent himself as the season progresses along…

    have no fear, tom brady is here…


    and on another note…joe, i think i’ve been with you since jump…i’ve been posting factoids and shantytown shennanies since around 2008-09

  6. adam from ny Says:

    nick wright is trying to throw ole tommy under the busssssss

  7. adam from ny Says:

    also brady got hit more and more as the game wore on yesterday…

    2nd half the pocket wasn’t too clean and paws & grubbers were all over ole tommy in the 3rd and 4th quarters

  8. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Amen brother.

    And can we STOP comparing Brady to JW. I do not loathe JW! I do not respect his play here in Tampa. He has a gun for sure so MAYBE he can turn it around somewhere else…good for him if he does I wish him well except when he plays the Bucs.

    I totally get why this is going on…it’s a natural reaction and probably occurs on every team that makes dramatic QB changes. Cam will get compared to Brady at the other end of the deal.

    But if you think about it…it’s totally UNFAIR to BOTH Brady and JW. Everytime Brady has a bad game…every turnover he will compared to JW…he freaking has more SB rings than any other QB by a significant multiple.

    This is also unfair to JW. Every time Brady makes a mistake JW’s weakness re turnovers gets shoved to the forefront. NO mention of his achievements just his failures. I’m relieved he’s gone because of 28-42 and his apparent inability to be aware of that failure…”check yo sheets”.

    But I do concede to NDOG, ONeill, Mike Johnson and the rest of that posse that YEAH JW did SOME good things in his five years. Good for him. He’s earned elephant dollars and is still in the league. But again…28-42!!!

    If I can make this parallel Montana and the Chiefs lost 30-0 to the playoff bound Oilers week 2 in the 93 season before going on a run, making the playoffs, and beating them in the divisional play off game. I am hopeful we will have a similar outcome.

  10. Mitch Says:

    Any reason my Montana comparison was moderated?

  11. Hodad Says:

    Maybe that out route needs to go.

  12. Etzel Says:

    I would take almost every QB on that list over the snake oil salesman that’s here to just have some fun

  13. John Sinclear Says:

    Here’s another record based on projecting this game’s results.

    Brady has two interceptions, one a pick six. If he continues at this rate, he will have 32 interceptions through the season, two more than Fameis Jameis, breaking Jameis’ record of 30.

  14. Joe in Michigan Says:

    That’s also “projecting” the Bucs to be 0-16. Quite a Bucs fan you are.

  15. Joe in Michigan Says:

    The only hole in the asinine “Brady is on a pace for 32 interceptions” after ONE game hypothesis is the Bucs last QB threw 3 interceptions in the first game of the 2019 season. That would’ve made his “projection” to be 48 interceptions for the year. Did he have 48? Okay, then.

  16. Joe in Michigan Says:

    FYI: George Blanda has the NFL record of most interceptions in a season, 42 in 1962. The record for Tampa Bay in a season is Vinny Testaverde, with 35 in 1988.

  17. Bucsfanman Says:

    Etzel- You’re talking about Josh Rosen, right?!!!

  18. macout247 Says:

    No he’s a douche

  19. macout247 Says:

    This was the most absurd segment when I watched it live before changing the channel and its disappointing you decided to post about it. crap crap crap

  20. BuccoDav Says:

    Joe, you have all relevant stats at your fingertips…

    Has any quarterback ever started and ended their careers with a pick 6?

  21. «Delusional Intelligence» Says:

    I still don’t understand why people listen to Nick Wright, let alone why he has a job. But I used to wonder the same thing about Tom Jones at the Times.

  22. Buczilla Says:

    I watched this Wright dude one time for about 2 minutes. Lol, he is one annoying sob.
