Brady The Coach

December 30th, 2020

“Tom, you’ll have to talk to the Glazers about your coaching salary. I’m sure we can steer the cash that Leftwich’s Christmas bonus to your direct deposit.”

In a little bit, Joe will have an article on how park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking Bucs quarterback Tom Brady has pledged to pitch in to help the less fortunate who hit hard indirectly by The Sickness.

Well, it seems Brady has also found time to be a Bucs assistant coach in addition to his tremendous playing duties.

This morning, Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians hopped on “Good Morning Football,” seen weekday mornings on NFL Network. There, Arians was asked what it’s like to coach a quarterback legend and international superstar.

Arians basically said he didn’t know he was getting another coach, too, for which Arians said he is very appreciative.

This is why Joe believes Brady is in the running — or should be in the running — for league MVP. His numbers are outstanding.

Brady’s worth to the Bucs may be immeasurable. How valuable is Brady? Compare how the Bucs have done in his first year in Tampa Bay, and how the Belicheats are doing in their first year without him. ‘Nuff said.

    His many positive intangibles are a main reason for the team’s success, imo. Keep him healthy please.

    Hey Tom…how about throwing me a dose of that vaccine.

  3. Bobbo Says:

    I railed against Brady getting MVP during his suspension, because the Pats went 3-1 without him.

    Compare that to this year:
    No way the Bucs are in the playoffs without Brady.

    Going to terrible baseball metrics: wins above replacement. The biggest gap should be MVP.

    Without Brady – bucs would likely be 5-11.
    Without Mahomes – chiefs would likely be 8-8
    Without Rodgers – packers would likely be 3-13
    Without Allen – bills would likely be 9-6
    Without Murray – cardinals would likely be 2-14
    Without Wilson – Seahawks would likely be 4-12
    Without Kamara – saints would likely be 9-6
    Without Herbert – chargers would likely be 2-14

    Brady is great and I am super happy we have him, but I think Rodgers is more valuable to his team this year.

    wins above replacement

    Maybe the most worthless, empty, misleading stat ever hatched.

    There are Hall of Fame baseball players with rotten WARs. This is one reason Joe has thrown in the towel on baseball. It’s been wrecked maybe beyond repair. SAD!

    (You forgot without Brady the Belicheats have their first losing season in 20 years.)

    brady plays for SB MVPs!!!!!!…screw regular season MVP….

    GO BUCS!!!!

  7. Bucfanforever Says:

    I agree that war is basically useless as a stat or a way to evaluate players; however as a mental exercise debating the value of a player to a team, it is a helpful way to think about it.

    Brady helped because he brought back lots of decent talent in the d-line. Brought in Gronk, Fournette, Shady and AB, revolutionized the mentality in the building, and helped a good number of players go from mediocre to pretty good. And if this was Brady’s 3rd year running this offense, he would be setting all time stats.

  8. Cobraboy Says:

    Brady’s impact goes beyond his personal performance. It goes to peer-to-peer education and motivation building a longer-term “how to win” mindset.

    One ponders iof the Glazers would have any interest in offering a sliver of the franchise to keep this guy in the organization long-term as Blank did for Warrick Dunn.

  9. ClwJB Says:

    The Pro Bowl snub, followed by the MVP snub is just the type of motivation that makes TB12 tick

    PLEASE keep disrespecting the GOAT

  10. Allbuccedup Says:

    Besides Bradys age I believe Belicheat wanted to see if he could win without Brady. Wellllllll Belicheat just clinched his first losing season since his first year with the Pats. Bill you might as well pack it in your done.

  11. Jeff Says:

    Let Brady QB the Bucs for as long as he likes and then offer him the head coaching job. He’s an idiot if he takes the job, but Brady is football-crazy enough to do it.

  12. unbelievable Says:

    This is why we needed to have the QB of the future in the building already- to learn from coach Tom. 2 years would be much better than just 1 (or none).

  13. Defense Rules Says:

    Allbuccedup … The writing’s been on the wall for the Patriots for at least a couple of years now IMO. They put their money into their defense most recently, and it paid off handsomely in 2019 (their defense was ranked #1) with 1 exception … their offense lost some key offensive contributors & Brady didn’t have nearly the weapons he was used to. Personally I think that Tom could see very clearly what 2020 & beyond would look like in terms of the Patriots’ offense and decided to look elsewhere.
