Tom Brady Says Pat McAfee Is Right

November 12th, 2020

“Love ya, man.”

Apparently, park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting Bucs quarterback Tom Brady and Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich are on the same page.

Why does Joe say that? Because Brady confirmed the speculation.

Earlier today, former Colts punter and Bruce Arians emergency quarterback Pat McAfee took to his nationally broadcast radio show/YouTube show and was talking Brady.

After the Bucs’ seal-clubbing by the Saints, people are hatching all sorts of conspiracy theories like Bucs defensive coordinator Todd Bowles has ruined Sean Murphy-Bunting and Jamel Deam by forcing them to play zone, and Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston gave the Saints the Bucs playbook (two things there: Why didn’t Jameis give his new team his old team’s playbook for Week 1? And, the Bucs aren’t running the same offense this year.)

And some are calling out Leftwich for being a deer in the headlights last Sunday. The Bucs had virtually no offense and set an NFL record for fewest rushing attempts in a game (five).

McAfee (he can be heard on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio weekdays) speculated and disputed there may be trouble between Leftwich and Brady. Though he said he’s never talked to Brady, McAfee has a hunch Brady and Leftwich get along pretty well.

Brady apparently watches/listens to McAfee’s show. Brady took to Twitter to tell McAfee that he was right on. That he and Leftwich are bros.

They ought to be.

Brady, remember, thought so much of Leftwich he barged into the wrong house thinking he was at Leftwich’s crib this offseason.

So, this calms Joe down some. At least we don’t have to worry about the future Hall of Fame quarterback telling his offensive coordinator to go jump off the Courtney Campbell Causeway in a tropical storm.

You can see Brady’s Twitter and McAfee’s comments about Brady and Leftwich below.

    The Bucs were going into the heavy wind on the first several drives, and with wet balls which Brady has publicly said he doesn’t do well with.

    Why they wouldn’t run the ball more is a head-scratcher.

    Then the defense did not have a good scheme and Brees and all the Saints offense were just on fire.

    Then you are down 14-0 and trying too hard to force coming back because the defense was stopping nothing and you had to score.

    So it looked bad, but it was just a few critical flaws cascaded into that utter rout.

    Pat is a boss. Such a great show.


    Shoutout AQ Shipley. Let’s give the man the rock at FB from the 1, who stops him?

    Sesteprenelicus … “So it looked bad, but it was just a few critical flaws cascaded into that utter rout.”

    Interesting perspective, but I suspect that it was more than a FEW critical flaws. More like ‘knife meets butter’ or ‘club meets seal’. It was a mauling thru & thru. Beatdowns like that can serve a useful purpose, but ONLY if coaches & players are totally honest about what went wrong & commit to making sure that it NEVER happens again.

    Yes wind was a factor, but it was a factor for BOTH teams. Playing the game at night on national TV may have been a factor, but it was a factor for BOTH teams. And yes, BOTH QBs are over 40, and BOTH of them are very close to being the best of all-time, so not that much difference there. BOTH teams have very talented players, with minimal obvious weaknesses in the starting positions.

    No excuses; the difference was COACHING plain & simple, on BOTH sides of the ball for the Bucs. I’ve seen some incredible gameplans come out of Todd Bowles … Sunday’s game definitely wasn’t one of them. And the gameplan produced by Byron Leftwich was one of the worst I can ever remember witnessing. That was totally unacceptable, and coaching owns that loss. And they’re the ones who need to re-commit BIG-TIME to getting this team back on-track.

    Defense Rules hit it. It starts with BL and TB play calling and should of had their respected parts ready. I belive they came in unprepared and thinking cake walk time.
    It cant always be on the players

    You might add “Third String QB” to JW’s moniker.

    Us TB12 fans up here in New England were shocked at how bad all facets of the Bucs game play was. Even a bad offensive outing should, SHOULD HAVE been at least compensated by a very good defense. This has been the Patriots way of doing business. A very good defense carrying the offense and vice versa. BA needs to own this Loss. It wasn’t because of AB, chemistry, an unhappy Mike Evans. It was a total team loss on both sides of the ball. If you think Belichick never used any information from a player facing their former team you’d have to be living under a rock. It makes sense for JW to supply Peyton with that information especially defensive schemes.

    BL aint the problem…he was disappointing sunday night as was BA and bowles….

    brady needs to hit the open man…simple as that….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  9. SOEbuc Says:

    Love Bowels, but no clue why has he switched to Smitty zone. I love Devin White but he is not good in coverage if your your plan is to blitz a DB all day and teams have probably recognized that like I have.

  10. Mike Johnson Says:

    All talk nothing else. The biggest problem is the inconsistency of our O line. In order for Brady to be successful, he needs that line. Many teams have Qb’s who actually throw better under duress and pressure. They are mobile. We do not have that luxury. So our O line is extremely important. Any breakdown and Brady because Lunch meat for the defensive dinosaurs and that’s the truth.

  11. Jeremythegreek Says:

    Sesteprenelicus is right. I thought the same thing. The first two runs they got around 6 yards per carry. They should have run more. I was also perplexed as to why they kept trying to throw the ball 20 yards downfield especially when their O line was having trouble giving Brady the time necessary for those deep shots and the poor weather. Brady was definitely off but this one goes on BA and the coaching staff. However I suspect BA’s comments were more of an I told you so to Brady rather than criticism. He was basically saying I told you we were better off without Antonio Brown. There simply aren’t enough balls to go around and Miller and Evans suffered.

    “The Bucs were going into the heavy wind on the first several drives, and with wet balls which Brady has publicly said he doesn’t do well with.”

    The wind was almost nonexistent on the field. The rain was pretty much gone by game time. Sorry, you are going to need better excuses.

    Defense Rules- nailed it, as usual.
