Tom Brady Talks Preseason Mystery

July 30th, 2021

It may surprise some fans to learn that Tom Brady has attempted 80 preseason passes since turning 40, and that’s with no preseason last year.

Today, Brady was asked at One Buc Palace about his preseason workload next month as a 44-year-old. His response was that he has yet to go there with coaches so it’s an unknown.

Joe heard local media types saying today that there’s no way Brady plays in preseason. But Joe would wager at least $100 that Brady does. Brady runs Brady. Everyone paying attention knows that.

Obviously, Brady has felt previously that getting his feet wet in preseason matters, otherwise he would have sat out in New England in recent years.

Joe thinks the mess that was the Bucs offense in the season opener last year, after no preseason, might also factor into Brady’s thinking on 2021.

”I always like playing as much as I can,” Brady said.

    Who knows better what he needs than the man himself. No one knows his body better than Tom Brady. He is the expert after all!!

  2. PassingThru Says:

    Tommy Boy will play the first half of two preseason games.

    as a 6 decade fan of football, i’ve seen many players get drafted and get injured on the first freakn play. NO WAY NO WAY NO WAY. If Tom’s a little rusty it won’t last further than the 1st half of the 1st game. NOT WORTH IT!!!!!

  4. Long time Brady fan says Says:

    He’ll play unless he is injured.

  5. Clinton Roche Says:

    I think he will play 2 series in game 1. One half in game two and none in game three.

    I can’t wait for September 9 to come. It will be fun to see first and second year guys get snaps in preseason along side some of the vets.

    He’s an animal!! Watched it when he was in New England and last year. No quit! Fire still rages! He’s insane!

  8. Wild Bill Says:

    Brady will likely play the first few possessions mostly throwing quick hitters. If they score on the first drive he sits.

    I’m really surprised that the NFL hasn’t made rules for preseason where you’re not allowed to hit the QB’s. With all the rules on how you can hit the QB’s in the regular season, they might as well make it illegal to hit them in preseason.

    He will play and he will be fine. He’s SMART!!! He’s not a running QB so he doesn’t need to get any feel or timing like Mahomes, Jackson and others.

    He simply will want to get some rhythm with his line and targets and he’ll know who is beat up front before they’re even beat and unload the ball quickly when he needs to.

    Tom Brady can protect himself.

    Miller – can’t hit QBs in the NFL? Tell that to Mahomes. The BUCS sandwiched him pretty good.
