Brady Is Balling

November 3rd, 2020

On fire

It is beyond Joe’s wildest imagination for a quarterback to start for the Bucs and be damn near perfect.

But alas, the Bucs have Mr. Six Rings. Despite being 43 and playing like he’s 34, park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting Bucs quarterback Tom Brady is balling out like few Bucs quarterbacks Joe has ever seen.

In his last six games, Brady has thrown 17 touchdowns with one pick. That’s nuts for a quarterback at any age much less one nearing AARP eligibility.

In that same span, Brady has thrown for 1,733 yards.

And tell Joe some of that Brady magic didn’t rub off on Antoine Winfield last night when the zebras waved off the flag he got hit with on the two-point conversion to close the game?

Yeah, Joe would say the gamble to sign a 43-year old quarterback has paid off handsomely.

    Greatest Bucs QB of all time already.

  2. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Tom Brady simply is The GOAT, the GOLD STANDARD for QB’s, and is the greatest Free Agent pick up in the History of the storied NFL. GO BUCS!!!!

  3. BuccoBrucey Says:

    He’s the real deal. So glad he chose tampa bay. Let’s keep him upright and ambulatory

  4. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Brady was a good pickup.

  5. Bird Says:

    Dont forget 20 tds and 4 picks (at halfway mark so x 2 – 40 td and 8 int)

    Thats 5 to 1 td to int ratio
    Thats down right disgusting.

    Thats how you get to the playoffs

  6. MidwestBucsFan Says:

    Brady is indeed ballin’

    You don’t even need to Check Your Sheet™ to confirm that

  7. TDTB Says:

    I agree he’s the GOAT and thrilled to have him…but a seem to remember a bunch of the balls sailing high last night. Made the game much closer than it should have been.

  8. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Brady was throwing pick 6 ints and 3 ints per game

    He told BA if Leftwich calls another deep 20 yard comeback route, He will make Leftwich eat the headset

    The former passive QB should also have threatened the BA/BL twins but instead is locked up somewhere down in the basement of Mercedez stadium in Lousiana”

  9. AKicknTheBucNuts Says:

    Yes, he is.

    Check your stat sheet.

  10. Mike C Says:

    If only Brady lead the league in passing yards, THAT would matter.

  11. Bird Says:

    Look at some of these chumps above ^^^^

    Anybody that thinks brady was not a homerun is a moronic homer
    Not even close

    20 td and 4 int At halfway mark

    He was off at beginning. Sure. He missed a few throws. Mickens does not get much work with brady so that is understanle. Brady- he took the sacks like he should have. Guys werent open when they showed back view

    He lived to play another series

    He won that game.
    Sure the defense got two turnovers so thank danny dimes for making 2 throws with guys draped on him.

    Defense was below average. Running game was absolute garbage.
    Sure our kicker made kicks

    But our offense was not humming. Something is wrong with mike evans. Mickens was top receiver. Brady dont care who it is. He cares about the win in the end.

    The played bad and still won.

  12. of course Says:

    where NPIPPY?

  13. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Mike C.: Yeah, sure. Either you’re joking, or are a joke.

    The STANDINGS are what matters.

  14. MChammer Says:

    Glad to see you didn’t give in to the snowflakes, Joe.

  15. Allbuccedup Says:

    Hes still got it hopefully the Bucs have enough foresight to draft a QB and let him learn from Brady next year and possibly the year after.

  16. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    Brady is unstoppable when properly protected. This OL has performed way above my expectations. If they can stay healthy and consistent this offense will just continue to impose it’s will.

  17. Buccystyle Says:

    Check them sheets haterrrsss

  18. dalvincookrules Says:

    Definitely an upgrade over Winston so far, but he also cannot make some of those elite downfield throws that Winston could (6th rd pick vs 1st overall in terms of physical talent). Despite having even more weapons to throw to, he is going to end up throwing for considerably less yards than JW.

    However, there’s no denying that Brady’s much better decision-making & accuracy has translated into more Ws.

  19. Joe in Michigan Says:

    dalvincookrules: If my math is correct…

    2019, after 8 games, Jameis Winston, 2,219 yards passing
    2020, after 8 games, Tom Brady, 2,189 yards passing

    After 8 games, that’s a difference of 30 yards passing. More importantly, the Bucs are 6-2 this year, 2-6 last year. Obviously, that’s not all on Jameis.

  20. ModHairKen Says:

    The refs were tired They did not want OT.

  21. Roy T. Buford Says:

    ne guy definitely makes a difference when he’s the GOAT.

    Had we still had last year’s drawn out, failed QB experiment under center, last night would have been a loss for sure…as would have been CAR, and LAC…at the very least. The Bucs are 6-2 but there is no question in my mind, all other factors being equal, we’d be 4-4 at BEST with last year’s QB…maybe not that good.

    Looking forward to 7-2 with proper prep and Brady preparing and performing like he knows how.

  22. Bird Says:

    The messiah worshippers were ready to explode in exultation
    Ready to type away

    But bucs won in end

    So you wont see them for another week

    They wanted so bad to say brady lost to a 1-6 team
    And say jameis would have won that game 😆

    Actually you switch qbs and we lose. Defense and running game sucked
    Oline was average. Kicker good for a change
    Brady even though was off in throws did not lose that game
    He kept composure and got enough points to win

    Couldn’t help but notice you left out the TD and INT/total turnover numbers. You posted yards do prove what? Winston was a turnover machine. Winning the turnover battle is the single most important stat there is.

  24. Defense Rules Says:

    I’m having trouble believing this. Did we all watch the same game? The Bucs stunk it up last night … in all phases of the game PLUS coaching. If it hadn’t been for Succop going 4 for 4 on FGs, we would’ve lost. Actually losing might’ve been the best thing for us at this point in the season; maybe then we’d stop talking about ‘cupcake games’ and play every game like EVERYTHING’S ON THE LINE each game. Because it is.

    I have no idea what our defense was trying to do last night, but Jason Garrett put on a clinic in how to defeat Tampa’s overly-blitzing defense. His mixture of very creative plays was brilliant IMO; his QB was excellent at times but missed on seemingly every deep ball that had ‘TD’ written on it. Our pass rush wasn’t there last night for the most part, but as BA said afterwards “We made the plays that counted”. The 2 INTs by Davis & SMB and then that last PD by Winfield were obviously critical.

    I was really surprised at our offense’s performance (or lack thereof) last night, especially in the 1st half. Tom Brady was off a lot last night, and yet he still ended up throwing 70% completion rate for 279 yds & 2 TDs. It took 8 different receivers to get that, but he made it happen. Our running game was dreadful (24 rushes for 81 yds … 3.4 YPC) and was especially ineffective when it was needed the most.

    That was a trap game, and we came about as close as you come to falling into the trap. We came out flat & stayed flat for the whole 1st half. The 2nd half was better, but not by all that much. Like BA said afterwards … “not much energy”. Brady reinforced that with … “We didn’t play anywhere near the way we’re capable of playing, but still it’s good to get the win”.

  25. DBS Says:

    Paul you don’t learn do you?

  26. Cannon Says:

    We are lucky that Danny Dimes couldn’t hit the broadside of a barn with his downfield passing. There were numerous plays where he simply missed wide open guy for 6 points.

    …that being said, I’d rather be lucky than good

  27. Paul Says:

    To Be Clear-

    My issue with JOE is the Moniker that shows DISRESPECT. Nowhere am I disputing the actions attributed to TB in the Moniker. My problem is the moniker is CLASSLESS and Disrespectful to the best thing that has ever happened to the Bucs football player wise. Getting the GOAT.

    This is the same guy that calls that debacle JW-America’s Quarterback!! Why do you not use a Positive Moniker for TB?? That is the one and only issue I have.

    Why not a Positive Moniker? Why the Disrespect? Because it’s Funny? Please give credit where credit is due!

  28. 813bucboi Says:


    stop whining…lol…

    it was obvious the staff planned to keep it simple on both sides of the ball…..bucs werent putting anything else on film for the saints to study….

    jason garretts offense is awful….lol…nothing was creative about it….and thats why he was fired in DAL….predictable non creative offense….you sound foolish being “impressed” with a 1-6 teams offense….lol…

    had brady not been off early, the game mightve been over early….

    these are the type of games that you must win in order to become a champ….ugly wins build character…

    GO BUCS!!!!

  29. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Brandon: If you read dalvincookrules post above, “Despite having even more weapons to throw to, he is going to end up throwing for considerably less yards than JW.” If my math is correct, it’s a only 30 yard difference (so far). Do you understand now?

  30. #1bucfan Says:

    Totally agree defense. Winning is good but it seems to be going to the heads of our bucs. I will never root for a loss but maybe these guys need a reality check. If we play the saints like that we will get toasted. Come on Bucs play every game like it’s a playoff game. Get your heads out of your ass and let’s go Bucs

  31. DBS Says:

    Yes we all watched the same game. Saw the Sam Mike Smith stupid carp. QB gets loose runs for 1st downs easy. Pressure got there but when it did he still got it away to a wide open receiver for a first down at a critical time! Offense run and stall out. Kicker putting up a bunch of points. Yes. Look just about the same as last year. Only this time it was not the kicker. It was. 2 point conversation we went for or we tried to stop.

  32. Youngbucs Says:

    Joe don’t forget Brady had 24tds last year. He has 20 now wow!!!

  33. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Just win, baby. 6-2, baby.

  34. Defense Rules Says:

    @813bucboi … “it was obvious the staff planned to keep it simple on both sides of the ball…..bucs werent putting anything else on film for the saints to study.”

    Seriously bucboi? THAT’S your best comeback? “The Bucs weren’t putting anything else on film for the Saints to study?” Got news: To BL, run up the gut on 1st down IS all he’s got, and if that’s ineffective, he’ll do it again. And again, and again, and again. Garrett doesn’t have even close to the talent to work with that BL has, PLUS he was facing a much tougher defense. BUT yes … he put on a clinic that BL could learn from. He won’t, but he could.

  35. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I mostly agree with DR with the following additions.

    The Giant’s pass coverage was excellent…
    Their defense did a great job of stopping our run….all game….even with an extra tackle…

    I give some credit to Danny Dimes last night for avoiding sacks and buying himself time to make plays…..but the misses deep & the Ints reminded me of JW.

    We should keep in mind that the no call on Winfield only helped us win…..NY would have still had to convert then beat us in OT……

  36. Mike C Says:

    Yes I was joking

  37. danr Says:

    Defense rules- that wasnt our usual defense. We blitzed last night 70% of plays.

    more than we have against ANY other quarterback. And that was because we felt Daniel Jones could not make the throws to the open guys when he was under pressure.

    It was a risky gamble, but even though it made our CB’s look bad, it ended up being the right play most of the time.

    It wasnt ‘they showed how to beat our over blitzing defense’ it was, we blitzed so often to make Danny ten pennies look bad, and it worked. but only just barely.

  38. Defense Rules Says:

    danr … I agree. At 1 point in the 2nd half, one of the announcers said that the Bucs had blitzed 61% of the time in the 1st half and already were at 80% in the 2nd half. Had Jones been able to hit just 1 or 2 of those deep passes (where his guy had several steps on our defender) it might well have been a different outcome. But it wasn’t …

    And nobody’s even mentioned this, but remember when the Bucs went for the 2-pt conversion and missed? If we’d made it, game outcome not an issue at the very end (we would’ve been 4 pts ahead). And if we’d just kicked the XP, game outcome also wouldn’t have been an issue at the end (we would’ve been 3 pts ahead after the Giants last TD).

  39. firethecannons Says:

    Winfield made a great play–and the no call was correct.

    Officiating seemed downright good last night!

  40. 813bucboi Says:


    BL has guided the bucs to a top3 offense AGAIN…….thats putting on a clinic….

    all the “talent” on offense is banged up… need to open up the playbook vs a lousy team…you know whats coming now can you stop it?…that was the question BL asked the giants and the answer was NO….giants knew what we were doing and we still got the W….

    theres nothing BL can learn from jason and that awful offense which has a lot to do with why they’re a 1-6 team….lol….

    you could learn some actual offense if you watch BL and the offense but you wont….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

    this aint fantasy football or college football….

    stop crying after WINS!!!!

    BL has made you look foolish all year….bucs 6-2 and the offense is ranked #3 for the 2nd year in a row….

    THE BL CLINIC is open for business!!…lol…

    GO BUCS!!!!!

    Brady had no receivers other than Edelman last year. The pats finished 12-4 last year but would have been more like a 4-12 team without Brady. Maybe they will be 4-12 this year – if they win twice against the Jets they have a shot 🙂

  45. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Ndog=JameisAlmighty, who predicted the Bucs wouldn’t win another game when they were 3-2.

  46. geno711 Says:

    I thought that Nunez -Roches, Steve McLendon, Devin White, and LaVonte David were much less effective against the run last night. That lead to more conversions and more chances.

    Our defense was not horrible but they certainly were not good either.

    Our offense was slightly worse than average. The run game got nothing. Brady missed a few. Guys just did not appear that open to me. The line pass blocking was average. The line run blocking was slightly worse than average.

    Were we horrible. No.
    Were we good. No.

    We certainly did not look like an elite team though.

  47. TampaTown Says:

    The flag wouldn’t have been an issue if BA had just kicked the extra point after the TD

  48. geno711 Says:

    You know for the third game in a row at least we did not beat ourselves.

    Green Bay. No turnovers. No penalties. No sacks.
    Las Vegas. No turnovers. 4 penalties. 0 sacks.
    New York G. 1 turnover. 3 penalties. 2 sacks.

    If we continue that — trend do we really have anything to worry about .

  49. Joe in Michigan Says:

    ^^^Great point, geno711. ^^^

  50. Bucsfan77 Says:

    I remember seeing a stat last night that Daniel’s has the second most interceptions since 2019, does that mean Winston still has the most and he hasn’t even played a down yet?
