“Best I Felt Really In A Long Time”

August 12th, 2021

Tom Brady talked today about how he’d go through the process of taping his knee last year at 7:15 a.m. to prepare for an 11 a.m. practice.

Life is a full 180 this year, Brady explained after today’s session at One Buc Palace.

“Best I felt really in a long time,” Brady said.

“The first time in 14 years I haven’t had to wear a knee sleeve. … It’s just nice to practice and feel like I can just kinda put a pair of shorts on and run out to practice.”

Brady added that he will still wear a knee brace in games as a precaution.

Joe is trying not to get carried away and think about Brady being better this year following offseason knee surgery.

Ahh, screw it. Joe’s getting fired up for what could be the best offensive season in NFL history.

  3. David Says:

    I’m fired up. It sounds like Brady, Evans, and JPP are all the healthiest they’ve been in years!!!

  4. Court XXXVII Says:

    Don’t forget AB, too, his knee much better

  5. Jason Says:

    I saw a black cat walk bye the other day, and two seconds later another black cat walked bye. I think it might have been the same cat. 🤔

  7. Bird Says:

    A full year and real offseason with a healthy Brady & Gronk and AB who were coming off their couches
    And timing with godwin and evans and scooter
    And throw in a running back that can squeeze the ball consistently on short passes

    I will be upset if we cannot score 35 a game

    Ha Bird! Outstanding comment about Ndoggystyle and the freaking realist. Wow, where have those guys gone? Tmax, you out there with your strippers in Colorado?
    As the Kinks famously said many, many years ago, “where have all the good guys gone?”

  13. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Outside of a Brady injury, hard not to see this team repeating.

    A season to remember

    Opie’s from a farm town, he knows all about goats!

    After watching the Patriots offense with Mac Jones they are are running the Tom Brady offense. That’s how you develop a young quarterback . A bunch of easy throws I hope they do the same kind of plays for Trask. Those kind of plays are designed to get the ball out of your hands quickly. I believe Jones will be the future of the Patriots because Belichick knows how to develop quarterbacks and you can’t take that from him . That’s why the whole was it Brady or Belichick is so stupid to me . Billchick is going to develop Jones just like he did Brady. I just hope they don’t have Trask throwing the ball 50 times up the field .

  18. August 1976 Buc Says:

    “Bird” for president of JBF for a day lol lol Classic

  19. Jerry R Jones Says:

    Tom “Benjamin Button” Brady.

  20. Youngbucs Says:

    Oneilbucs you are annoying stfu what QBs had he “developed “smh. He’s a proven loser without Brady. This is undeniable your crowning Mac Jones already he hasn’t even played a real gm😂. You’ll say and make up anything still trying to prove a point. You still haven’t eaten your crow about everything you were wrong about get a life.

  21. Youngbucs Says:

    Just sit back and let it all play out you’ll have plenty of Time to make excuses during the season. For the pats and the saints!!!!!!

  22. Youngbucs Says:

    Brady’s the same QB he was in college before the nfl clutch!!!!! And earned it all from his hard work and dedication from the bottom.

  23. Youngbucs Says:

    Dude try’s so hard to diminish Brady it’s to funny. He just did the impossible for the Bucs with so many obstacles in 2020. You are the definition of a 🤡loser!

  24. Cobraboy Says:

    LOL…Benjamin Button…

  25. PSL Bob Says:

    Brady looks like Richie Cunningham in that picture.

  26. Scooter Says:

    Belichick is a defensive coach since his New York Giants days. He’s no QB guru. Brady’s face looks different. Possibly old age starting to set in, or weight gain, or maybe a Steroid derivative for medical reasons.I think 2003-2004 was the last time a Super Bowl champ repeated. Brady was the QB. He’s working towards that 1st regular season game and nothing beyond that. ” Apes shall not kill other Apes” was the No.1 rule in the movie “Planet of the Apes.” Could their ever be a worldwide No.1 rule “Humans shall not kill other Humans.”

  27. Rod Munch Says:

    That looks like Brady in Madden 2007 on the XBOX 360.

  28. Oneilbuc Says:

    Youngbucs . Brady deserved to be a 6th round pick back then. Billchick developed Brady what if Brady would have went to the Redskins ?? I get it most of yall grew up in the fantasy football world wich I think has been a cancer to the NFL. To sit here and talk bad about Billchick is a narrative . Every one knows the Patriots had the most opt outs. I still haven’t understood why yall think it’s a insult to Brady lol 😂🤣!! What I saw last night was the same offense Brady played in New England his young years. But I can care less about that Trask is my quarterback of the future . So I will enjoy this season watching my bucs the whole team and I hope we win another superbowl. It will be a team effort not a quarterback . Yall are root for Brady go head !! I root for the bucs and that includes Brady because he’s on the team. And remember they gave him a all-star roster stop acting like this is the same players and offense lol 😆😂 . But I’m done arguing with yall !! I’m a bucs fan not a quarterback fan that’s for you fantasy football fans !!!

  29. Youngbucs Says:

    Dude typing a long story about nothing don’t make you right. He has never done anything without Brady as his QB a full body of work! Stop always try to move the goal post. You say he knows how develop QBs who then list them??? You don’t even know if trask will ever be the starter here there’s lots of things that could happen trades bad seasons. We could end up with a top pick and choose another QB we like in the nxt couple of years. Nothing is set in stone but continue on with your petty excuse for a life being in the cult of winston has made you salty. You’ve been talking nonsense for 2 years now I feel sorry for you. Sike 😂😂😂🤡

  30. Youngbucs Says:

    I luv how my team cut the fat off this team the past couple of years!!! It was much needed McCoy winston Hargreaves players who were all talk.

  31. Youngbucs Says:

    Imagine being such a loser who has no real substance. That you actually say something stupid like brady deserved to be a 6th round pick😂 only oneilbucs people. This guy is a lost cause 😂

  32. Oneilbuc Says:

    Youngbucs . You are a Brady fan I’m done talking to you !! All you want to is agure bro !! That’s how I know you ain’t nothing but a little kid . So go play out side with your little friends!! Lol 😆🤣

  33. Scooter Says:

    OneilBucClown. I was at Gillette Stadium. Brady and Gronk are at their best in the biggest games. Does Mac Jones have ice water running thru his veins like Tommy boy? Jones hasn’t taken a regular season game snap. I’m sure Cam has no plans on getting bench splinters in his rear. After the Patriots losing record last season, its clear to me Belichik piggybacked off Brady all along. Furthermore NFL preseason game offenses are vanilla, the teams will show their hand when the games count. As a Head Coach did Belichik win a Lombardi Trophy with Cleveland? And I don’t follow fantasy football. Danny Amendola said in the dictionary across from Patriot Way is the name “Tom Brady.” Brady led New England to 9 super bowls, asked for a two year contract, and as General Manager Belichik only offered one year. However Belichik made sure his 2 sons with limited football experience were on the Patriot payroll as Coaches.

  34. Oneilbuc Says:

    Scooter. So you just going to ignore all those great defenses that Brady played with??? This is why I say fantasy football is ruining the NFL. They have convinced some yall that a defense don’t mean nothing all you need is a quarterback. Belichick runs the Patriots and yes it’s just one preseason game I get all all of that . But I will say Jones will be ok in that system. Billchick will have a good defense wich means his quarterbacks won’t have to feel like it’s all on them . Who have a better chance in developing to a good quarterback Jones or Trask right now ?? And I believe that Trask is a better quarterback than Jones but it’s ab

  35. Oneilbuc Says:

    But it’s about situations and that means the team and coaches that they have around them.

  36. Youngbucs Says:

    Blah blah if you wanna label me a Brady cool I’ll label you a winston fan. Everyone who has been regulars on this site knows where your hate of Brady and the team comes from. It’s because the kick that dead weight to the curb. The defense is trash BA is trash owners are trash!! That was you shouting that when they got rid of winston right????? This defense and coaches was far from trash in 2019 ya boy winston drag what should have been at least a playoff team down down down good riddance! Best move the Bucs ever made was moving on and that nice ring they sporting right now further proves it. Kick rocks bum.

  37. Oneilbuc Says:

    Scooter. You trying to be disrespectful just because I have a different opinion then you ?? I see why people with a different opinion left this site. This not a real bucs fan site this is a Brady fan site. I like Brady and it was a good move short term if you going to move on from a young quarterback. But don’t tell me that this was the same team because you are lieing about that. They added hall of famers on this team that wasn’t on here before. All yall do is ride Brady jock and get mad when you bring up the other players on the team lol 😆😂 who also helped this team win. If the bucs had the 2017 , 2018, 2015 , 2019, 2011, 2014, and others this team wouldn’t have made the playoffs last year. Where was the 2019 Patriots defense ranked number 1 when Brady didn’t have weapons to throw to . That’s why they made the playoffs that year and that’s a fact!!!

  38. SCOOTER Says:

    Thin-skinned OneilBuc. looks like I struck a nerve. Did you get out of bed on the wrong side today? The 2019 Patriot receivers were ranked last( 32nd ) in the league at getting separation that year. Great drafting by Belichick. Every game Brady was throwing the ball out of bounds or in the turf. how about that vaunted Patriot defense in the last Eagles Super Bowl. They let a back up QB (Nick Foles ) beat them. In the history of the NFL (all regular season and playoff games ever played ), That game was the first time a QB threw for over 500 yards, threw 3 Touchdowns with no interceptions and lost the game. That QB was Brady. The 2019 Patriots needed a win in their last regular season game which was a home game to get the No.2 seed and a first round playoff Bye. A lot of incentive. A week off, win 2 games and ur in the Super Bowl. The warm Weather Dolphins went up to frigid New England with nothing on the line. With 65 seconds left in the 4th quarter Ryan Fitzpatrick ( whose bounced around the league like a pinball ) picked apart the Patriot defense, driving Miami 75 yards and hit TE Geisecki with 8 secs.left in the game. Devante Parker had 8 catches on Stefon Gilmour ( the 2019 Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year ). THE Patriot Defense came up lame. The next weekend Mike Vrable( former Patriot player ) brought the TITANS to New England and outwitted the Master. Late 4th Quarter with Tennessee in punting formation, Vrable kept taking Delay of Game penalties running down the clock while Belichik was screaming at the refs. Vrable pulled a Belichik on Belichik.

  39. Oneilbuc Says:

    Scooter. You ain’t struck nothing over here because if the bucs go 17 and 0 I sleep good at night. If they go 0 and 17 I sleep good at night. The only thing yall like to do is argue lol 😆😂 . Again name 1 bad defense Brady played with I’ll wait??? The point is football is a team game so I look at the team as a whole. Yall look at the quarterback and that’s it that’s the difference . You ain’t changing my mind on that regardless on what you Brady worshipers say . So go ahead in make all about Brady and I will make all about the team. Just like they gave him a all-star roster and they change the playbook for him and everybody know it but you Brady worshipers !! Lol 😆🤣😂

  40. Oneilbuc Says:

    Scooter what about the superbowl against the Rams in 2018 , Rams , 2001, Eagles in 04 , Seahawks in 2014, every superbowl the Patriots won it was won by the defense at the end all but 1 and that was in 2016. Brady threw 3 picks against the Packers and our defense stepped up. I’m done with yall on this site the only thing yall want to do is argue instead of coming together as a fan base . Who ever don’t worship Brady and make him the only reason why we won then yall have a problem. Yall hate on Trask and he haven’t played 1 game yet. When Brady leaves or God forbid he gets hurt yall believe the bucs will be back at the bottom I don’t so it really ain’t nothing to talk about to yall anymore. It’s football season and I’m going to enjoy watching my bucs win another superbowl .

    OneilBuc verbatim says,” If the Bucs go 17 and 0 I sleep good at night, if they go 0 and 17 I sleep good at night. You just indited yourself. No true But fan would ever say that. Better drop the buc from Oneil.
