Tom Brady Said That

June 26th, 2021

HBO appearance.

Yeah, he did.

Early this week, a teased and edited HBO clip of Bucs quarterback Tom Brady led fans to believe when Brady entered free agency, some team turned its nose up at him and told him they were going to stay with their lesser quarterback. That that, Brady said on The Shop, “You’re sticking with that motherf@cker?”

Well, it is true, per the show airing last night. Brady did say what the edited tease suggested.

Adam Maya of watched it last night and filed this report.

The latest episode aired Friday and opened with Brady, in mid-story, relaying how an NFL team initially expressed interest in him during last year’s free agency before passing on the future Hall of Famer. Brady, as seen in a trailer that went viral earlier this week, was incredulous that the undisclosed team opted to keep its incumbent starter.

“I’m sitting there thinking, you’re sticking with that (expletive)?” Brady scoffed. “Are you serious?”

Later, Maya quoted Brady as saying he was going to “[bleep] up” the team that didn’t want him.

Joe really, really, really hopes that team — which Brady apparently never revealed — is the slimy Saints.

Also, we learned in this candid (?) discussion from Brady that he is less than honest in his press conferences. Joe always thought Brady’s press conferences sucked because he often babbles and dodges questions. So if he isn’t even being forthcoming, what’s the point? Joe has better things to focus on.

    Could be a couple of teams but most likely the 49ers. It most certainly was not the Saints. They would not get rid of an aging HOFer for an even older HOFer. Also no way Brady would be incredulous about the Saints sticking with Brees.

  2. Bucfanforever Says:

    Broncos? Vikings?

  3. BerrickDrooks Says:

    I think it was the 49ers, he probably would’ve loved going home to California but it just didn’t work out.

  4. gp Says:

    There are thirty different possibilities with a few front runners and I couldn’t give a rats @ss which one it is.
    He chose the Bucs and now we’re living the dream!

    Two more (plus?) seasons
    The three peat aka “hat trick”
    And who knows, maybe an undefeated season mixed in?

    As difficult as it is for ANY QB to catch his numbers, and as unimportant those records are to him as opposed to winning…

    He will anchor in stone for all time, the title of GOAT.

    And he will retire a Buc.

  5. Mort Says:

    So ask more interesting questions at the presser. Ask about life or hobbies or something. He obviously isn’t going to reveal anything newsworthy because that would be a distraction you guys would run and ask whoever else about whatever he says.

    So just ask general human interest questions.

    What is your favorite meal? What does your usual day after a game look like? What’s your favorite color? Anything.

  6. Bird Says:

    Brees is not that f ing guy. He is a HOF
    Please brady would not say that about brees

  7. FirstTimePoster Says:

    Bears. Trubisky fits that description. Although he hardly “f—ed” them up on Thursday night game.

  8. Beeej Says:

    The LAST thing you ever want to do in a press conference is answer the questions

    lol, read this elsewhere

    “From a strategic standpoint, I never want to give away, like, what we’re doing,” Brady said. “Like, I usually say the opposite. You know, they got a sh***y corner [and] I’ll be like, ‘That guy’s unbelievable. I don’t even know how they complete balls over there.’ In my mind I’m like, ‘I’m going at that m******r all day.’”

    First of all….he didn’t say it….he said ” I’m sitting here thinking”……..yes, he did say he was thinking that to the media, however.

    Second…..if it was the Saints….he didn’t do a very good job of blowing them up in the two regular season games.

    Third…..who really cares….he’s a Buc and happy to be a Buc.

  11. PassingThru Says:

    As I wrote yesterday, Tom Brady is very, very guarded about his comments. He’s constructed as a series of shells like one of those Russian doll toys. Though he is very personable with those around him, he doesn’t reveal more than what’s inside one or two shells.

    Almost every professional athlete only says things that are intended for public consumption… you know, pleasant sounding cliches, compliments about the competition or the host city, whatever. Brady takes those public consumption comments to the next level.

  12. Eddie Marz Says:

    My guess is Miami. They stuck with Fitzpatrick. Tua wasn’t ready then.GO BUCS!

  13. Buckaroo Boozie Says:

    It was Chicago… TB12 can’t stand Nick Foles

  14. B Says:

    The entire appearance was just as calculated as anything else Brady has done in the media. The statement was provocative to gain attention and vague to avoid repercussion. He said nothing no one didn’t know already and sprinkled in f-bombs because that’s what that HBO show format dictates, self promotion with illusion of authenticity. He showed his hand with his little speech on athlete longevity and performance could be increased by health regimes. It’s an advertisement for his TB40 company, his post football career path.

  15. My pick is Raiders Says:

    I think it’s likely the raiders for 3 reasons.

    1. Raiders were in the running.
    2. Raiders stuck with middle of the pack Derek Carr
    3. Raiders are a joke team.

  16. Crickett Baker Says:

    I will bet anything that we find out what team this was before long this year. Did you see Tom’s face when he talked about effing that team up? Come on! There is no way the rest of the Bucs won’t find out by the time we play them! One or more will snitch. I just bet we will all know at some point during the season. 😀

  17. crazybucs_CL Says:

    IMO it doesn’t matter the team, it matters the fact that he still go the “chip in his shoulder”… so at the end he is human like everybody else, he get pissed, his ego goes off, he wants revanche. Yes surprised, but I believe this is a good thing for us, for the bucs. The GOAT is ours…. that’s most important.

  18. Slugglife Says:

    The saltiest among us probably wish Brady would have gone elsewhere so we could resign the the 30 million dollar interception machine turned backup money gimmick clipboard holder.

    You now who you are.

  19. SOEbuc Says:

    It all starts with the Glazers and Licht and Bucs coaching talking to Brady in the beginning. Bucs got the best coaches along with the best front office.They slapped down $60 million in front of him and he probably said “where’s the pen?” before going back to anyone else.

  20. Ash Says:

    It was the colts

  21. Beeej Says:

    Hmmmm…Florida (Tampa OR Miami)…or….ChiCAGO. ChiCAGO. After living in the frozen tundra of Mass for 20 years, I’m SURE freezing his arse off in Chicago was on top of his and wife’s list of places to go
