Tristan Wirfs Describes “General” Tom Brady

March 4th, 2021

For Joe, the insider takes on Tom Brady never get old.

Brady writing handwritten letters to non-football players and coaches at One Buc Palace is one of Joe’s personal favorites.

Superstar rookie right tackle Tristan Wirfs was talking on the Hawkeyed YouTube show recently and painted Brady as the Bucs’ true commander-in-chief.

“It’s pretty crazy just the way that he kind of controls practice. It’s like he’s a general,” Wirfs said. “Everyone gravitates toward him and they listen.”

Whatever order comes from The General, per Wirfs, be it a tempo change or tweaking receivers routes and more, “He’ll say it and it happens like that (snaps fingers).”

Wirfs went on to say Brady really flips a personality switch in a practice environment and then again on game days, adding that the Brady off the field is laid back and easy to talk to, nothing like the field general.

    Wirfs is already my favorite Bucs o-lineman of all time. We hit the jackpot

  2. atlBucs Says:

    I wish we coulda kept Jameis to backup and learn from Brady.

  3. Robert Says:


    jw could not learn. that was and always will be his problem. his own ego. he’s a moron, and i don’t means whatever his grades were. you can’t fix stupid.

  4. 813bucboi Says:

    JW is a BUST!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  5. 813bucboi Says:

  6. Mike C Says:

    Brady might have been the only one able to TRULY humble Jaymiss.

  7. Casual Observer Says:

    Brady sounds like the perfect QB/general. The legend grows daily.

    Amusing clowns

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The problem with JW is JW…..& he was no better after five years than he was after 1st…..he had plenty of good teachers……

  11. Hawk Says:

    I still believe that Winston’s problem is his inability to think at NFL speed. He has the physical talent and mental knowledge. But so did Jeff George and Ryan Leaf. Their problem was that couldn’t process a post-snap defensive change fast enough.

  12. BB44 Says:

    Brady and P Manning were two of the best at reading defense’s.It taked a lot of discipline. And I dont think JW can do it. Plus I don’t think he could come back after Brady took them to Super Bowl an won it. I don’t think he’d have the likes of Gronk an Brown to stick around. That team is gonna break up for the money anyway.

  13. Dan Williamson Says:

    Jameis needed to go. God bless or correct hime, whichever pertains, but he wore the welcome out here. We carried him long enough and theres a reason sean peyton doesnt dub him the starting qb in nawlin’s

  14. Executive Concerts & Management Inc. Says:

    What Hawk says is correct. Even more processing is first accomplished by doing your homework. Brady was a 5 year college athlete. Brady knows how to study. Most of these young quarterbacks cannot study because they never practiced the art of studying. Pro Bowler Mr. Ray Lewis always says to beat a master you must study a master.

  15. Executive Concerts & Management Inc. Says:

    Tampa Bay will win as long as they got Brady. As far as receivers go, I bet Steve Smith in the broadcast booth would unretire to catch Bradys sweet passes. So leave but please bring Steve Smith in. Now that would be fire.

  16. DaBux Says:

    Two more years to TB12 and Wirfs will end up a perpetual All Pro. Wirfs is such a bad arse, I can’t wait to see how much better he is next season.


    I can’t take reading this crap any longer,.Winston, Brady comparison? Please! Mahomes, Rogers & Wilson aren’t there and Wi ston is. I say the name Jamais Winston’s name not be allowed to be written on this site unless he lands on a team as a starter and receives a serious ass kicking after having the unfortunate experience of playing against the NEW and IMPROVED Bucs. Then we can all get a good laugh.

  18. Oneilbuc Says:

    And Payton had more intersections and turnovers than Jamies in his first 5 years . Lol lol 😆 🤣 plus he had 2 hall of fame running runningbacks in his back field . Facts !!!


    Oneil, at least your off comparing Brady. Riddle me this Batman, did Payton have 30 int’s in one season, and Manning NEVER had a defense as good as the Bucs. How many HOF back were on Brady teams? Your argument doesn’t hold water. There is no correlation between the two. Manning to Winston, RIDICULOUS! Would you like to make a wager Winston never sniffs a SB?

  20. Oneilbuc Says:

    Name a year Jamies had a top ranked defense ??? Lol 😆 🤣 and Payton had 28 ints in one year . Name a hall of fame runningback Jamies hadv???

  21. David Says:

    Like most, I was so sick of New England & Brady winning all the time. I did respect what they accomplished though.
    Now, having Brady in our hometown and seeing a lot more coverage than just national coverage…
    Is there anything he doesn’t do correctly and professionally ?!?!?
    On the field, off the field, with charity, with his kids, supermodel wife who genuinely seems to absolutely love watching football, watching how he interacts with every single teammate and people within the community, his answers in interviews, The celebration and tossing the trophy and… It truly is remarkable.


    Oneil Winston was a starter for only 5 years. Brady played 22 without a HOF RB. 2019 D is pretty much the same as 2020 which was pretty good. So Winston had same D as Brady. Manning and Brady played on two teams and won SB’s on both. Winston played on two teams and only thing he received were splinters from riding the bench as a 3RD STRING QB.

  23. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar. Last year was the first time the defense played in a 34 defense . Why do you keep trying to compare Jamies to Brady?? Lol lol 😆 🤣 😂 one played 5 years and the other played 20 years in the same offense . Even now with Brady they changed the offense. This is not the same team we didn’t have AB,GORNK,FOURNETT , OR WIRST. THEN WE ACTUALLY RAN THE BALL WELL . BUT I’M DONE WITH THE HOLD JAMIES THING!! BUT YALL ARE AT THE MERCY OF ONE PLAYER .BECAUSE YALL AFRAID OF THE FUTURE . AND BRADY IS NOT THE FUTURE!! TALK TO ME ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE TEAM!!!


    2 maybe 3 SB’s then rebuild, what’s wrong with that? Tampa Dynasty. I’m and glad you finally have moved on from Winston because I was beginning to think football wasn’t your thing or you were Jamais mom.

  25. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar LOL lol 😆 😂 🤣 Brady probably won’t come back after this season . And just because Brady will be gone that doesn’t mean it’s a rebuild . And as far as football not being my thing I’m from Texas football is the king sport out here. That’s why I look at the hold team not just one guy. I played the game from little league to high school and was always a starter. My son played up against Winfield Jr lil brother in little league. My son is a captain and a star on his team. I come a family of football players . That’s why I would never give the quarterback the only reason why a team win .

  26. Eddie Says:

    Wirfs was worth the pick. Hope he’s around for a long time. Nice to be part of a Super Bowl team your first season.👍

    i damn near spit out my coffee reading this quote. i just cant stop laughing!!!


    Oneil, I played at a much higher level and coached after as well. My hints are below.

    Weis/Minter Quinn/Hoyte

  29. Cajun 69 Says:

    Hey like I told you before week 3 give Brady a little time to get this team right and we will win the Supperbowl

  30. Cajun 69 Says:

    I hate to say I told you but I did no one believed me but I’m a life long Pats fan I watched every game Tom Brady played up till this day I am a resident of Florida and dam Glad he came here I knew what he was capable of never ever bet Against him I seen a lot of terms up buy 30. Points or more and loose because the man gets in a zone and he is an animal I like when some one puts a hit on him because that’s when he kicks some Arse
