Blame Tom Brady

June 10th, 2021

Developed masterplan scheme?

It wasn’t long ago that Joe often used the hashtag #BlameJameis. Why? Because it seemed every damn thing somehow was Jameis Winston’s fault.

Whatever bad happened in the world, people attacked Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston. Global warming. Russian hackers shutting down an oil pipeline. The Sickness. World hunger and any damn thing wrong with the Bucs. #BlameJameis.

Joe began believing Jameis was human punching bag.

Well, soon if you believe the owner of the PFF tribe, Cris Collinsworth, the new hashtag for an NFL scapegoat will include park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, numbers-rules-peeved, Bucs-Super-Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady.

The reason why drama queen Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and irked Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson have become fed up with their teams and supposedly want out is because of Brady, Collinsworth is convinced.

Collinsworth believes that the new fad of QB empowerment began with Brady and the Bucs and NFL teams better start catering to the wants and needs of their franchise quarterbacks lest they pull cancer moves like DeSean Jackson and become such a-holes that the team has to ship them out.

“Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers watched the respect that Tom Brady was given in Tampa,” Collinsworth said. “Russell, it is his offensive line. And Aaron, ‘Can I not pick a fifth-round receiver that I like?'”

The Bucs have kept Brady in the loop on many personnel decisions that would impact the offense. And why wouldn’t the Bucs?ย  Who knows Brady better than Brady?

Hell, Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians, who is a huge team-family guy, first met Brady’s supermodel wife on the field after the Super Bowl.

The head coach never met his star quarterback’s wife until after the season!

With the Bucs last year having a tiny window in which to prepare, why wouldn’t the team include him in Brady in personnel decisions to make his transition smoother and easier? To Joe, this just seemed like common sense.

If a guy with a Brady’s resume is kept in the loop, it likely greases the wheels for Brady to produce better, resulting in in more victories. That’s a win-win, yes?

Collinsworth believes guys like Rodgers and Wilson are downright jealous.

“I really do think for those two quarterbacks, they were looking at what was happening in Tampa, they were like, ‘You see? They are letting Tom help build this thing.'”

And Collinsworth believes Arians might be playing a master chess game. Go on national talk shows and keep drilling home how much Brady is involved in (some) personnel decisions — even though some of the examples may be slightly exaggerated fish stories.

Arians saying he has Brady scout college receivers, and other examples of inclusion, might just be a ploy to stir the pot. Get Rodgers and Wilson so mental and potentially become a large enough pain in the arse to get shipped out by their teams to the AFC.

And then the Bucs only have to worry about getting past Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Stafford.


Rodgers had to be frosted when he saw how the Bucs rolled out the red carpet for Brady last year and his Packers fully ignored Rodgers’ many pleas to draft a receiver in the first round. Then Brady comes into Rodgers’ own house and punked the Packers to go to the Super Bowl.

    If you canโ€™t laugh out loud about this video and this article, then something is seriously wrong with you. This is freaking hilarious. This is why I never miss a day, even in the off season, of checking in with the Joes. I never would have seen this video if not for them. They bring in every little obscure scrap of information about the Bucs, and post it here. Thanks guys. Great start to my day.

  2. Cobraboy Says:

    Neither Wilson nor Rodgers breathes the same rarified air as Brady.

    Let them win 6-7 Super Bowls and *then* ask for more power.

    And the fact is their temper tantrums over lack of Brady-esque power is a prime example as to why they don’t deserve it.

  3. DoooshLaRue Says:

    JayMiss blamed for the Russian pipeline attack that happened a month ago?

    Where you getting this info Joe?
    Saints blog?

  4. SufferingSince76 Says:

    What Cobraboy said! Wilson and Rodgers are good, but they arenโ€™t Brady good.

  5. Dave Says:

    When they reduce their salaries to Tom’s level, maybe their teams would seek their input.

  6. Joe Says:

    Thank you Sparky!

  7. Youngbucs Says:

    Fake ๐Ÿs wanting to do real ๐Ÿthings!

  8. Anonymous Says:

    I don’t know why GM’s and Coaches wouldn’t listens to players. That’s pretty obvious, if Aaron Rodgers says hey that guy fits what we are trying to do, why ignore him? He’s a future hall of fame Quarterback, you really think your scout has a better eye than Rodgers? maybe he does, but that scout probably doesn’t know the scheme fit better then Rodgers.

  9. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Roger Staubach retired supposedly because of too many concussions, despite the fact the Cowboys wanted him back for 2 more years, but some speculate that Landryโ€™s refusal to let him call the plays was a factor.

  10. SB Says:

    I have a feeling that Trask was also Brady approved

  11. Medicated Pete Says:

    Cris decided to make this HOT TAKE 4 months after everyone else on the planet already did. Congratulations Cris, you’re brilliant

  12. ModHairKen Says:

    Wilson and Rodgers are prima donnas. Both have won one SB but have had many more years of talented teams.

    Tom Brady has won 7. He has won with some really good but not great teams. He is the best of all time. Yet, he never complained publicly. Compare that to โ€œLet Russ Cookโ€ โ€” self promoter โ€” and whiny Rodgers.

  13. BT Says:

    If you were Arians, would you let Brady meet discretely with Trask to size him up. Can his arm strength get better, etc.

    Seems like a pretty obvious thing to do.

  14. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    No doubt BA and company are player coaches. They have figured out a system for players “to want” to come to Tampa Bay. It not just the warm sunshine nor no state tax income, nor the highest dollar, it is also playing for coaches who give them a sense of being a contributor to the team.

  15. Defense Rules Says:

    @Dave … “When they reduce their salaries to Tomโ€™s level, maybe their teams would seek their input.”

    And right there lies the biggest difference between Brady and Wilson/Rodgers IMO. Rodgers’ CAP Hit this year is $37.2 mil and Wilson’s is $32.0 mil. Brady’s CAP Hit this year is $10.5 mil.

    The difference in those CAP Hits is at least 1 top-ranked WR like Mike Evans (CAP Hit $16.6 mil), and for most teams it’d be the difference of having 2 highly-ranked WRs on their rosters (say Mike Evans AND Antonio Brown who’s making $3.1 mil). Maybe the real question that Rodgers & Wilson should be asking is “Do I want to make a ton of money, or do I want to win championships?”

  16. Robert Says:

    TB is better than both, but I get their frustration. AR did fine w/o the WR he wanted. RW….well a QB should have protection!

    Then again, those guys make more than TB and might of thought of spreading the wealth for talent. KC is gonna be in trouble soon.

  17. D-Rok Says:

    The critical difference, as I see it, between Rodgers, Wilson, and Brady is that Brady played out (honored) his contract in NE and was a free-agent. Brady then chose a situation which would favor/welcome his input. Rodgers and Wilson are under contract, and when their contracts are over, they can choose a team in free agency that might value their input. Until then, those 2 should shut up and play football.

  18. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I agree with Alabamabuc,there are several factors that are causing players to want to play and stay in Tampa with the Bucs. This is in no particular order.

    1. No state income tax
    2. Nice weather year round
    3. Plenty of recreational things in the area to do
    4. Team led by TB12 as QB
    5. Player friendly coaches
    6. Championship pedigree and expectations to run it back
    7. State of the art team facilities

    There are many other factors also but honestly, why would guys leave if the contract offers are fair? Unless it was a fortune offered by another team, I would try to stay with what is a great situation.

  19. JimmyJack Says:

    So basically if Brady wins another ring and decides to hang up his cleats we will have both Rodgers and Wilson begging to be traded to the one and only Buccaneers.

    As a Bucs fan I think Im OK with that.

  20. All lives matter Says:

    It seems to me these people are always talking about the Buc’s for all the wrong reasons. Whether it be when we’re stinkin’ up the joint or now when it seems a long shot that we can’t lose.

    Rhino skin ..if you’re a Buc fan you must have rhino skin.

  21. Bird Says:

    Wilson and rodgers each won a super bowl

    Brady – 7
    (Making 10 super bow appearances )

    Not sure they get the brady treatment yet but both are great and why shouldnt a great qb not have input. Makes sense

    Shoot – If owners/management wanted to throw rose pedals at the ground in front of brady as he entered the stadium (like coming to america) then all good by me. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  22. SlyPirate Says:

    Mahomes and Murray made a similar comment before the draft. They expected their teams to consult with them on picks.

  23. Mark2001 Says:

    Poor Jameis.. what did he ever do to make people think he had problems that effected the culture and reputation of the Bucs organization, and our success/failure? Oh yeah… I found my list. Now I remember. SMH.

  24. DoooshLaRue Says:


    So you checked yo sheet huh?

  25. mark2001 Says:

    Doosh…I guess I could have said check yo sheet to the idea that Jameis was an innocent victim of circumstance.๐Ÿ˜

  26. 6throundpick Says:

    Eli Manning was saying that he was better than Brady…about a year later, he was being benched; shortly thereafter, he retired. Even with all of TB122’s accomplishments and continued work ethic, many still don’t respect him- just fast-forward and say: I am better; I can do everything better than him…don’t get the same results because …

  27. DingleBerry Says:

    Compare this:

    “Mr. Entertainment, Americaโ€™s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston”

    To this:

    “park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, numbers-rules-peeved, Bucs-Super-Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady.”

    And then consider the caliber each player. Disgraceful. Shameful. Untenable.

  28. DingleBerry Says:

    “consider the caliber *of* each player”

  29. Buc1987 Says:

    Brady won six SB’s coming into this team…

    Of course they’re going to roll out the red carpet for that.

    Now he has 7 rings. That’s ridiculous!

    Rodgers and Wilson can go pound sand for all I give a crap.

    They ain’t the GOAT!

  30. Cobraboy Says:

    DR gets it. Brady wants to win championships. Wilson & Rodgers want that extra cheese.

    @ D-Rok: good comments. Brady played out his contract in near silence, then made his move. Wilson & Rodgers are under contract. If they don’t like a lack of input, they shouldn’t have signed that contract. Play it out, then leave. Some team will roll out the red carpet, no doubt.

  31. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    One of the greatest differences between Brady and America’s Turnover Machine(always loved that moniker in spite of being a Jameis supporter ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚) is that even though he has more NFL game experience as many of the coaches combined, he is still open to his coaches teaching and coaching him up, where as even as a rookie Winston was arrogant enough to do things as he wanted to no matter what the coaches taught. I believe Arians allowed him to hang himself out to dry because of that. Brady doesn’t need coaches to run a game because he sees almost everything on the field even as defenses change up. I would love to see one game where he is allowed to run the entire offense to his liking with little or no input from coaches. That would be something!

    ” Jameis an innocent victim of circumstances???”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ please say you’re playing around!!! Say it ain’t so!!! How innocent was he of all the bad decisions he made on and off the field??? How innocent was he of the overall majority of the turnovers attributed to him??? Even that famed defense of 1999-2002 would have given up after 80 turnovers!!! Winston apologists are almost as irritating as the neo nahtzee Gump supporters up here who spew their political agenda on this here football website!!!

  32. mark2001 Says:

    So Dave…I assume you don’t think Jameis might actually make the Saints Offense more dangerous next year, in line with the thinking of Good Morning Footballs Kyle Brandt yesterday? Who would think Jameis isn’t an upgrade to Drew Brees? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ€

  33. Bucsfanman Says:

    BIG difference between Brady, Rodgers, and Wilson IMO.
    I mean, I agree in principle that your franchise QB should have some say in personnel, SOME. It’s not always as easy as it seems. Consider that while Brady may have had some say, he didn’t come to a barren roster either. Couple that with sufficient cap space and more offensive opportunity, it changes the situation.
    AND, it’s not like there were a ton of different personnel brought in anyways; Gronk, Lenny and AB come to mind and 2 of the 3 weren’t “starters”.

  34. Jonny Says:

    Brady is worthy of the special treatment he’s been receiving at Tampa. But I think Rodgers should be as well, especially because most of the Packers teams over the last decade would not even have sniffed playoffs with their subpar non-physical defenses and average at best offensive weapons. Rodgers is as good as Mahomes and I can understand his frustration of possibly retiring as an extreme underachiever compared to the likes of Brady and Mahomes.

  35. D-Rome Says:

    I jumped to the comments just to say I didn’t read the article. Anytime I see Jay-Miss referenced in the lead I know that Unreasonable Joe is writing the article and undoubtedly referenced the greatest QB in Bucs and NFL history in the typical disrespectful fashion.

    I know Unreasonable Joe loves the Bucs but he hates the team won a Super Bowl with Tom Brady while Jay-Miss is backing up a running back pretending to be a quarterback.

  36. mark2001 Says:

    Rodgers always has insisted on the biggest contracts… Pulled the rug out of McCarthy… and quite frankly is a prima donna. Is he a talented QB? Sure. Is he a good teammate? Yes. But he isn’t Tom Brady….and we are tremendously fortunate to have Brady.

    Now sure, Brady is older. But if he can be a major part of the process bringing two rings to Tampa Bay, and helping to set us a great culture for the future, who would reasonably, even hopefully ask for more?

  37. mark2001 Says:

    Really…you could remake “its a wonderful life around this situation”.

    Here we are in Bradyville, SB champs, coaching staff all intact, every FA returning, good young talent being developed and among the leagues elite…a roll model most teams wished to be like.

    Joe says, I wish we had given Jameis that 25 million dollar contract and said forget Brady. Clarence says… yeah…you get what you wish for… poof.

    Scene comes up in Jameisville. Last year was another losing season…no Gronk, no Fournette, no Brown, no Suh returning, no Barrett, no David. Licht is fired…Arians is fired. Dominik is rehired as GM and Allen as the salary cap specialist. Bowles is gone…Lefty is gone. It is all about rebuild and living as the laughing stock of the league.

    Clarence tells Joe, no, it was all just a dream…you are in Bradyville… see how it would have been? Joe…. just let Jameis go. And everytime a bell chimes, the Bucs get a SB ring.

  38. Rod Munch Says:

    If Rodgers is willing to accept the vet minimum, the Bucs could use a quality backup — plus it might really help him to sit on the bench behind Brady and learn how to win big games.

  39. All lives matter Says:

    about Jameis ..if Sean Payton expects Jameis to run the offense like Bree’s did or like Brady can he’ll get the same Jameis we dealt with for 5 seasons. Jameis does well with scripted plays but as soon as you start to play from call to call he presses. This is why I believe Payton will use a platoon QB carousel with Jameis and T. Hill. Payton will game plan giving each QB a script of plays to perform in the 1st and the 2nd half with maybe an exceptionable audible each play according to the defense. This will limit Jameis from making mistakes and being careless with the ball. I think Arians, and Koetter put to much faith in Jameis to make the the right adjustments after the first scripted series. Jameis will do better under Payton’s tutelage but he won’t be autonomous like Bree’s or Brady is today.
