Bryon Leftwich Talks Brady Bonding

October 1st, 2020

There’s a very happy marriage in its honeymoon phase at One Buc Palace.

That’s the love connection between Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and the most successful quarterback in NFL history, Tom Brady.

Bucs fans have heard about it previously, how 43-year-old Brady very much connects with 40-year-old Leftwich. They grew up in the NFL during the same era, played the same position, and both have a very old-school mentality when it comes to the game. They even like pencil and paper.

This week Leftwich jumped on Total Access, a Buccaneers production, and had a smile in his voice talking about sharing time with Brady and communicating as peers with a common love of the game.

“You know, we talk about a lot of old stuff because football never changes,” Leftwich said. “Football is football. He’s seen it all. Like we talked about, he’s done it all. We played against each other. We played during the same time. We’ve always been good,

“Now we have an opportunity to work with each other. Now it’s just amazingly fun. We have a lot of fun. You know, we get a lot of work in but it’s good to coach The Goat. You know, it’s good to coach the guy that everybody will consider the best ever. It’s just fun, man. It’s just fun when you have a guy like this who’s seen it all, done it all. You just got to put him in position and watch him execute. It’s a special thing.

“I still think we got some work to do. Everybody’s probably saying that. We got opportunities to make more plays out there on the grass. I think as we get more time together we will. I don’t like where we at; I like the direction we’re going. I like the plays that we’ve improved from Week 1 to Week 3.”

Brady joined the same show and was adamant that the Bucs will get better when the offense plays more confidently, which will come from more time together. Brady doesn’t hesitate to express that losing offseason time thanks to The Sickness was a major impediment to consistent football.

That will all play out on the field. But off the field, Leftwich and Brady have found each other and seem to be loving their time together. Joe’s very pleased because that marriage could have played out very differently.

    This will only strengthen B Leftwichs resume. Either he or Todd B is the next head coach, when BA rides off into the sunset one day. Hopefully after a SB win. GO BUCS !!!!

    “I think” we have work to do. “I think” we’ll get better.

    If this coaching thing doesn’t work out, he has a future as a motivational speaker … “I think.”

  3. Defense Rules Says:

    Tom Brady & Byron Leftwich … and the Bucs’ offense in general … will only go as far as our OLine takes them. Bucs have excellent talent at the skill positions, but it’s the beasts in the trenches that pull the wagon. They don’t seem to be consistently firing on all 5 cylinders just yet, but the talent’s there also. Bucs have the potential to be a very dangerous offense, but potential doesn’t win games. Still have work to do, but it’s coming along steadily.

  4. Bucsfanman Says:

    This offense has yet to hit stride. As Defense Rules states above, it’s about the trenches. We still need to establish a CONSISTENT run-game to be successful. That means the OL will need to step it up.
    The more Brady is comfortable, the better this offense will be.
    It could be just downright SCARY!

  5. Bobby M. Says:

    He went from a coach killer to a career maker. Glad he gets the chance to work with a top tier QB. We are definitely trending in the right direction, i’ve stated before, we’re going to have to find ways to win ugly. The football gods have been kind to us during this process with opponents that aren’t top tier. We should be able to move to 3-1 and hopefully by week 6 the offense will be moving efficiently while still building momentum.

  6. Paul Says:

    WOW JOE!! You called him what he REALLY is!!!

    I am so Proud of YOU!!

    “the most successful quarterback in NFL history, Tom Brady”.

    ^^^Paul, Joe isn’t stupid and he knows who Brady is. Only an idiot (Paul) would think otherwise. Apparently, Joe gets it; unfortunately for us Paul does NOT. Please go some place else to throw out your drivel.

    NDOG you don’t win 6 champs on luck. Dam you sound dumb bro.

  12. Big Stinky Says:

    TWENTY THREE penalties in 3 games! ME13 had 2 yards in 2 out of 3 games! Seems pretty CONSISTENT to me!

  13. Bucsfanman Says:

    The whole “he’s lucky” thing really makes you sound dumb Ndog, not that you care.
    Tom Brady’s accomplishments speak for themselves and you have to be more than lucky to survive 20 years in the NFL.

    It’s so old dude.
