Signing Tom Brady The Best Move in Sports?

January 28th, 2021

Best move in sports?

OK, let’s get this out of the way: Kay Adams, looking like she just got off a plane from Aruba, is wearing a Bucs sweatshirt on NFL Network.

Now, is signing park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking Bucs quarterback Tom Brady the greatest move in sports history?

That’s a lot to chew on.

But Adams, co-host of “Good Morning Football,” seen weekday mornings on NFL Network, seems to think Brady may be after leading the previously moribund Bucs to the Super Bowl. At age 43.

Co-host Nate Burleson agrees Brady is just about fully responsible for turning around a franchise with a rich history of losing into one 60 minutes of football from being a Super Bowl champion.

Co-host Peter Schrager just marvels at the ageless Brady, noting it took one year — at 43 — to climb to the mountaintop of the NFC.

Not Russell Wilson, not Drew Brees. Not Aaron Rodgers, but Brady. Schrager said in so many words, Brady was the best of the AFC and in one season as a middle-aged man demonstrated the NFL is his league.

Co-host Kyle Brandt likened Brady leading the Bucs to the Super Bowl to if Michael Jordan got the Washington Wizards to the NBA Finals.

Although there are likely better examples, Joe was trying to think of a star athlete leaving a franchise after years of success, and then joining another team to lead them on a championship run. (No, not Trent Dilfer.) Without deep thought or serious research, Joe came up with Pete Rose, who left the Cincinnati Reds and joined the Philadelphia Phillies and bam, they are World Series winners (in his second season in Philadelphia).

That was 40 years ago (yes, Tom Brady was alive then).

Anyway, you can watch Adams the “Good Morning Football” crew discuss the Brady magic in the video below.

    it could be the best and dumbest move in sports history….

    all bill had to do was keep brady happy and put a couple weapons around him….it’s not like his skills fail off a cliff like brees, rivers or even big ben….

    im just glad he’s a BUC!!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!

    813bucboi … Solid take.

    I wonder if we will see desperation moves out of the Patriots. Bill and co are under A LOT of scrutiny right now. Missing the playoffs next year and the NE brass will be on the hot seat.

    Hey Joes – how about swapping a pic of Kay in where Licht’s pic is? Licht’s done a great job but not as nice to look at as Kay.

  6. Joe Says:


    There is video of Kay Adam’s in this post. Thought video of her would suffice.

    Does Manning count? Yeah his arm was shot his last year but I’m pretty sure he set record numbers his first year in Denver. And as we all know, the mentality these QBs bring can be VERY important.

  8. ClodHopper Says:

    That’s an interesting question. I looked it through Licht’s eyes. Sure it was a great move but also something I would consider a no brainer even though the market didnt seem to want him very much.

    But Nate got it right. For Brady, this is the best move in the history of sports for a player. The risk he took going to the laughing stock of the NFL shouldn’t be forgotten.

    I also agree with 813. For Belicheat, this was very very stupid.
    But for some other teams it was stupid too. Take away about 10 teams with solid qbs, and any team that didnt go after Brady is as stupid as the Pats were to let him go.

  9. Kentucky Buc Says:

    @clodhopper. According to Pat Mac 23 teams made a run at Brady under the radar.

  10. buxsxntkt Says:

    Belicheat was able to get by with Brady for years as the rest of his roster declined. Of courese, I hate to admit it, but they did have the most COVID opt outs this year . It is quite possible they will be much better next year if all return. Clearly they need a real QB or Belichick will look like an ordinary mortal, perhaps even more like the Cleveland Browns coach he once was.
    Not many teams reliably run deep in the playoffs regularly, and unless the Belicheats find another diamond in the rough they will now be like all other teams.

    Oh, i forgot to mention, Kay Adams is HOT !!!!!

  12. sgrd0q Says:

    The Patriots will have a solid defense (particularly after the COVID opt outs return), and a great coach, but with no QB they will struggle like everybody else. Unless they find another QB in the 6th round 🙂

  13. sgrd0q Says:

    And yes, letting Brady go was stupid. Letting Payton go was a good decision considering the future with his health was uncertain after all the neck surgeries and they had the number one pick to draft Luck. Letting Brady go with no replacement in mind = totally stupid. Considering Brady got them the Lombardy trophy the year before with almost no receivers on the team. Also, no decline whatsoever the last year – it was obvious he had nobody to throw to.

  14. ClodHopper Says:

    Kentucky, I didnt know that. That adds up to my math then, so I feel good about that. lol

  15. IrishMist Says:

    I wonder if Licht could coax Luck out of retirement after Brady is done? Our O line might be a selling point.

  16. sgrd0q Says:

    Getting Luck (if you can talk him out of retirement) will be a huge gamble. Some people just cannot stay healthy no matter what. Incredible talent thought. What a shame he retired before he was 30.

    How about LeBron? Similar to Brady going AFC to NFC, LeBron had enough of the NBA’s Eastern Conference, now he’s out here in SoCal winning titles the Western Conference too. And damn it, I have always hated the Lakers!
