On Pace For 44 Touchdowns & 16 Interceptions

October 4th, 2020

Last year, the Buccaneers’ starting quarterback hurled 33 touchdowns and 30 interceptions, hitting the rare 30-30 plateau — and not the Jose Canseco kind.

This year, at the quarter pole of the NFL season, his replacement is on pace to throw 44 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Now that’s a gargantuan difference and exactly the on-field achievement the Bucs were hoping to achieve with their quarterback swap, Tom Brady for the Saints’ backup QB.

Brady also is completing 65 percent of his passes, far better than Jameis. And Brady is averaging 39 passes per game (more than Jameis) so it’s not like he’s relying on a punishing running game and he hasn’t had his full complement of receivers in each game.

Yes, the Chargers are a bad team, as was Denver, but the Panthers and Saints are both 2-2 and with talent on defense.

So far, the Bucs have hit the lottery with Brady. Joe’s not putting any limits on what Brady can achieve this season. But Joe will be stunned if Brady throws less than 30 touchdowns and more than one pick per game.

  2. patrickbucs Says:

    Chargers are not a bad team, should of beaten the Chiefs a few weeks ago and lots in OT. I watched it, they went toe to toe the whole game. Denver is, Panthers have shown they are not.

    Chargers are not bad at all. They play hard and are well coached. We looked lost on D in the just half today. They outschemed for sure. Plus, Herbert is the best looking rookie QB I’ve seen in a while. Tons of poise and potential. He is an arrow pointing way up type. Chargers are no worse than 8-8 team.

  5. SB Says:

    Where is Npup when you need him?

  6. SB Says:

    Jeesh! Still with every comment in the corner?

  7. Dewey Selmon Says:

    And he is on pace for 8 pik6’s. breaking Winston’s mark.

  8. Frankinthe813 Says:

    Chargers played the chiefs into OT before losing..

  9. Lamarcus Says:

    I like being 3-1 but we are overrated

  10. SB Says:

  14. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Brady is getting it done with a MASH Unit. They are light years ahead of last years team. GO BUCS!!!!

  15. Bucs4Life Says:

    not the same offense lol

    bucs are actually using play action 73% of the time, comared to 17% in 2019

    no way brady would have been asked to run the 7 step and fire offense we had in 2019

  16. Oneilbucs Says:

    Brady ball out today good job …

  17. Oneilbucs Says:

    I give credit were credit is do he played good the second half !!!

  18. tampabaybucfan Says:

    I must say….our Oline had a very good day today…..

    Kick return yardage vs Bucs…..ZERO…….100% touchbacks from Pinion.

  19. Youngbucs Says:

    Oneibucs thx for your support buddy

  20. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    And that’s with the most drops in the league!! He should have 4 more TDs and a couple hundred more yards!!!

  21. Sourbob Says:


  22. Sourbob Says:

    Great win,only getting better.

  23. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Chargers are definitely not a bad team. Record says they are, but they are not.

  24. jcscycles Says:

    Chargers could have been 3-0 coming in to this game. Note also that Carolina is now 2-2. Denver should be 2-2 also. We aren’t playing the Jets every week. Heck, Carolina and NOLA are tied now.

  25. adam from ny Says:

    brady is on pace for 44 tds 16 ints 4,488 yards and 8 pick sixes

  26. adam from ny Says:

    you know that i know that ya love me joe 🙂

  27. Bird Says:

    Love this win

    2 concerns for offense :

    Bradys interceptions concern me. …so Easy fix and he knows this . No short out routes.

    Got to play 2 entire halfs. Seems like they have only played good for a half this entire season.

    Ivan, you won’t hear from them today. They’re to busy crying.

  30. Oneilbucs Says:

    Youngbucs I’ve been a bucs fan just like you but I still don’t and I never will just blame 1 person for a win or lost it’s a team game . But defense is going to have to play better . And just like on that pick 6 I will never blame the quarterback for a pick 6 because just because you throw a interception that doesn’t mean the wr has to let him score .

  31. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Ndog?!!!! You at the pound?!!!! Sup holmes

  32. Bucsfan951 Says:

    At halftime, the crown was flowing! I anticipated a Bucs lose. I mean, crown with a splash of coke!

    But I have to remember that the Bucs have an actual leader behind center! He was calm, collective, and the d stepped up!

    I just can’t predict this team!!!

  33. Rod Munch Says:

    Stop throwing to Justin Watson and Brady won’t be on pace for 8 pick 6s.

  34. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Oneil, open your eyes and watch the pic 6 again and realize Watson ran a sh@tty route.

  35. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We are blessed to now have a QB who puts the ball where it’s supposed to be.

  36. Jeffbuc Says:

    Justin Herbert is the real deal. He reminds me of Mahomes. He has IT. He is going to be great I am glad he is in the other conference. He was throwing dimes as he was getting hit hard. And he is fast and mobile. The chargers are in good hands. Ndog and other jameis lovers won’t like this but he looked better in his third start than jameis looked in 5 years. Every throw was on the money and we brought the house. I wish he was available In any of the last 5 drafts when we could have drafted him. He was the best player on the field to me. And I really thought he would struggle. But I agree this is a game we lost last year by a lot. But the Tom Brady effect has our team believing until the final whistle blows. Last year we would have folded and got beat 31-14

  37. D-Rome Says:

    Why are we still talking about a career backup?

  39. 813bucboi Says:

    Realist is out taking ndog for a walk


  40. Cannon Says:

    I knew we were going to win the game after that fumble recovery before the half. For the first time in 10 years, I believe in this team.

    …and they aren’t even playing their best football yet

  41. My Momma Says:

    Looked like Brady was chewing out Watson on the side line after the pick. This is not the first time he’s had to do this with Watson after a pick.

  42. David Says:

    Whether or not Watson ran a bad route, that was not a good decision by Brady. But, he makes one bad decision a game. JW would make six and 2-3 of them would turn into turnovers.
    The other point is he is still getting used to these receivers and they are still getting used to him. They should be getting better and better and better.
    Just like the defense.
    My biggest concern with the defense is a consistent pass rush. They did not have one in the first half and the secondary was exposed a little and made a couple bad mistakes

    Don’t get me wrong, I love this young secondary and think they will get better and better but they need a consistent pass rush. Every good secondary does.

    My biggest concern is JPP or Shaq getting injured. The pass rushers are good, but they are thin

  43. Buczilla Says:

    I still like “Out of sight, out of mind”, but there is no comparison between him and Brady (the best football player ever, regardless of position).

  44. NDog is an idiot Says:

    Oh where, oh where has our NDog gone? Oh where oh where has he gone???? To New Orleans I would suspect!! NDog Be gettin himself Some!!

  45. Big Stinky Says:

    Bucs4Life or Ndog

    Whoever you are, what’s the difference? You act like Brady can’t complete a pass from a 7 step drop which is nonsense. Stop trying to compare SHAMELESS to the GOAT!!! You look stupid doing it. Winston was terrible at play action and Brady is one of the best at selling it. Do you think we would have won if we still had HIM?

  46. Robert James Says:

    3 dash1 baby!

  47. adam from ny Says:

    if we come out of the next 2 games at 4-2 we’re ok…

    if we go 1-1 in the next 2 it’s ok…

    just not 0-2

  48. Oneilbucs Says:

    Alvin I can agree with you on that but let’s be honest about it if it was Jamies it would have been his fault and not Watson . I know ever interceptions is not the quarterback fault but last year no one noticed that . I try to be fare about things regardless who the quarterback is . Now I like this play book and it will probably work for Rosen . This should be the play book for the next quarterback .

  49. JayWill Says:

    Buczilla you do realize Winston had the same amount of picks as Brady this time last year with a higher completion percentage and qb rating. They were 2-2 because of a missed fg at the end of the Giants game. He didn’t have the defense Brady has.

  50. Anonymous Says:

    America’s (back up) Quarterback! Go Bucs! while a talented juvenile learns the game from the Saint’s sideline.

  51. Beaner Says:

    Watson needed to show more aggression on that pick 6. He is shoulder to shoulder with a defender who also has a bead on the ball. If he couldn’t catch it, he needed to keep it from being caught. In short, it was his job to interfere and make it an incomplete pass. I’ve followed Brady since Michigan. I have never seen him not believe he was going to win. No matter what the scoreboard said. EVER. The first step to winning is believing you can. He may only play for the next two seasons, but the lessons that team is going to learn will be priceless.

  52. Big Stinky Says:


    You do realize that 5 is more than 4 don’t you? Stop already!!! I know you wish that SHAMELESS was here instead of Brady but you are in the minority. Don’t throw stats out that aren’t true because people will repeat that stupid crap. Their numbers are VERY similar after 4 games but Brady still leads in EVERY category you brought up to Buczilla.

    Brady has 12 TD’S/4 INT’S and SHAMELESS had 9 TD’s/5 INT’S after the first 4 weeks. 120 points for Brady and 123 for him but defense scored in the Rams game. JW3 had 68% completion percentage in the game against the Rams but 55% against the 49ers. Brady was 63% in week one but has been 65% in the other 3 games with 7 drops against the Panthers. I could go on ALL day!!!

    Their Quarterback rating and QBR are similar but again Brady is better. You CANNOT look at one game and say JW3 had better ratings. Add them up and divide by 4 silly arse. Brady has 391 versus 381 divided by 4 and the QBR is 226.6 versus 225.1, again divide by 4. I told you they were close. Let’s talk again after the next 2 games. Winston’s QBR was 16% and 9% in games 5 and 6 with 5 picks week 6.
