188 And Counting

November 7th, 2020

File this under things you wouldn’t read during the Jameis Winston era.

So how many pass attempts has it been since Tom Brady threw an interception? The answer is 188, per Joe’s count. The last Brady pick came in the first quarter against the Chargers on Oct. 4.

That was a pick-6 intended for Justin Watson, a sideline route that was returned 78 yards. (Fun fact: Watson hasn’t been targeted since that game, per Pro Football Reference.)

It’s a stunning streak for Brady, who once held the NFL record with 358 straight pass attempts without a pick before it was broken by Aaron Rodgers in 2018.

Man, Joe wouldn’t want to be the next Bucs pass catcher who has a screw up that leads to a pick, at least not before Brady screws up on his own.

It’s an all-new TAMPA TWO, featuring Sage JoeBucsFan.com columnist Ira Kaufman and Derrick Brooks, who needs no introduction.

Brooks and The Sage dive into all things Bucs-Saints. The fun is presented by The Identity Tampa Bay and Joe.

    Next to Tony Dungy, Brady is the best thing to ever happen to Bucs football. It’s only gonna get better!!!

  2. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Anyone know what the Buccaneer record is? My guess is Freeman during his 25/6 season. not sure.

  3. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Impressive things about Brady:

    1) Bucs are 6-2
    2) Got the Watson out route taken out of the playbook
    3) O-Line looks good
    4) Audibles that work
    5) QB sneaks at 43

    There are many more, this is just off the top of my head.

    10-6 11-5 at best

    Bucs arent quite there yet. They finish season 4-4 or 5-3

    They will win a playoff game and thats it.

    Next year will be better.

    Saints 27 bucs 21 this week. Saints are a smarter, better team. Right now

    Anonymous- BOO!!! Go be a pooper scooper somewhere else. Go Bucs and Go Brady!!!

  6. Joe in Michigan Says:

    If the Bucs use a spy (Devon White or David) on Taysom Hill when he’s in the game, the Bucs will win (IMHO). If they don’t, the Saints will win (IMHO).

    Thanks, Anonymous, for your ignorance.

    Bucs beat Saints by 2 scores tomorrow. They’ve been waiting for this rematch. These boys are going to be READY and the Saints already know that they have a dog fight on their hands. It won’t be close.

    Let’s just hope this isn’t a jinx article on Brady……but he certainly is protecting the football…..and, correct me if I’m wrong but I think he has only fumbled once and that was on a handoff……

    The key to this game is why we lost the first one….

    Turnovers, Penalties & Special teams….

    And yes….spy Taysom Hill…..when he’s in the shotgun, he almost always runs.

  9. WillieG Says:

    How many pass attempts between JW’s picks? 15? 16?

  10. Thisisouryear!! Says:

    I expect the saints to mimic the giants, run a lot of misdirection especially with Taysom, and short passes. If we are prepared for that on defense I think we will win convincingly, but with the saints personnel that’s a tough task.

  11. Soggy Says:

    It’s a easy remedy = we just have to score more then the aint’s, Yes the aint’s are going home 2nd place in the division..

  12. All lives matter Says:

    …and he’ll probably also break 5000 yards passing or come close. The one most important thing I like about Brady over Winsnone, he only scores for his own team 98% of the time.

    Bucs cant stop the slants to kamara.
    Bucs cannot stop cam jordan
    Im sorry bucs are much improved but not ready to beat the saints

  14. Gofortheface30 Says:

    A Jinx article for Brady? Please. He’s played in 9 Super Bowls, and two seasons worth of playoff games, and iconic games against Peyton Manning. This is a week 8 regular season game against a guy that can’t throw more than 30 yards in the air anymore. He wipes his ass with this game. He will be fine

    *** anonymous ***
    Way to troll loser

  16. adam from ny Says:

    they seem to have also eliminated watson from the actual offense…

    shouldn’t he have been receiving balls before mickens last week…

    dude is being phased out possibly…

    brady might have had enough of his shantytown shennanigans lol

  17. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Green Bay beat the saints, Raiders beat the Saints. The Bucs did a demolition job on GB and Rodgers did not even last the 4th Quarter, And the Raiders game, Brady was looking 10 years younger and putting on a aerial assualt. Pay back time. A shift in the Balance of power in the NFC South happens tonight in favor of the Bucs. Welcome to the new normal Drew. Lol it is going to be fun watching the Saints defense play pick your poison trying to cover AB and the gang. GO BUCS!!!!!!!

    Did Wirfs not hobble Cam Jordan in his rookie debut?

  19. Bucsfanman Says:

    Did somebody say “turnovers”?!
    I thought we “downgraded” with Brady?!
    Tear ’em up “old man”! Lets beat these freakin’ ‘Aints for a change!

  20. Bird Says:

    Anonymous is webster or ndog

    Both in hiding of course until bucs lose

  21. Mike C Says:

    Did anyone see what the Defense did to the aints at the dome? Offence is MUCH better than in the first game and we got them on grass now, Bucs win, Big.

  22. Vinny from Vermont Says:

    Winds currently are out of the east at 15 to 25, and gusting perhaps over 40 mph
    by game time. My buc induced ptsd self is concerned that weather conditions might favor Saints with JW’s experience in these conditions sitting on Aints bench whispering in Drew Brees ear.
    Do we have anyone experienced in these wind conditions around One Buc place to share wind expectations with TB?

    I’m just juiced as hell. We’re not only competitive we’re 6-2 with a little breathing room as far as the playoffs. I agree tonight’s game is the most critical of this season and if you think about it before the season we ALL believed this would be the case. The Saints and the Bucs battling for the Division with each needing to hold serve at home which placed the focus on THIS game from the start…IF we were as good as we thought we were.

    Yeow…turns out we’re even better than we thought we could be. I saw three different NFL Power Rankings that had the Bucs at 3rd spot. Who’d a thunk the Buc’s would be considered a top three team as the second half of the season unfolds.

    ALL the attention on the BUCS tonight and the battle of the QB’s and a thousand other sub plots…like who wins the ME13 Lattimore battle? Does AB make a big difference? This will be battled as the two great QB’s squaring off again…but I think the receivers may have something to say about that. NO is banged up…we have CG14 coming back…and we’ve added AB. I like our chances.
