Happy Brady

August 31st, 2021

We read the story, but now the author is sharing his in-person impressions.

NBC Sports uber NFL insider Peter King shared quotes from his 19-minute sitdown with Tom Brady at Bucs training camp about 10 days ago. Joe typed up several of them.

King goes back years with Brady and is one of the few to be granted that kind of access with The Goat.

While visiting The Rich Eisen Show yesterday, King was asked for his impressions of Brady up close and personal.

“Effusive, excited, you know, really, really happy, content with his life, happy he did what he did,” King said of Brady. “And he acts young.”

Joe’s always interested in sniffing out the chances of Brady staying for the 2022 season and beyond. Yeah, he has a contract for 2022, but Brady will leave whenever he wants. Everyone knows that.

King, who legitimately knows Brady, saying Brady is super happy makes Joe all warm and fuzzy inside.

Interestingly, King is certain after talking to Brady that veteran newcomer running back Giovani Bernard will “score a lot of touchdowns and have a chance to be a really good red zone player.” King explained that he advises fantasy football players to jump on Bernard.

    Brady is happy but the most important person that is happy is Gisele. Gisele hated Belichick. Gisele hate living in New England. After 2017 super loss to Eagles Brady and Gisele went to Robert Krafts house and demanded Brady be let go by patriots. Gisele said how ridiculous it was that after all these years, Belichick still treated Brady like “f****** Johnny Foxboro.” It was bad enough to never voice approval. It was bullsh*t to still be dressing down the most accomplished quarterback in league history during team meetings and treating his personal trainer and best friend like some kind of outcast.” Gisele hated Belichick and always felt Patriots took advantage of him lowballing with contracts. Gisele is the one with all the money in the family

    From observing last preseason game , you can just see this happiness with brady

    Dude was talking / joking with a different teammate every time the camera panned over to the sideline

    Devin white said he is one of us. Not some guy who acts like the goat or should i say acts like some sour puss …im better then you…im cool guy Aaron Rodgers

    Greatest free agent signing in bucs history and we are just getting started on maybe ever cause this guy will play until he thinks he cannot help this team win anymore.

    I just love watching the few who still cant give the man his due credit here.

    I wish, when Brady retires, that he enjoyed his time as a Buc so much that he retires as a Buc, not a Pat. But that is just selfishness on my part. Retiring as a Pat is the right thing, and really the only thing he can do. Still, it would be cool for us Bucs fans. Especially after all the Pats fans get unglued over it.

    Will or should Brady make the Buc’s ring of honor ??

  6. ocala Says:

    @Ben Even if he never wins another game again he should be in the Buc’s ring of honor.

    If they win back to back Super Bowl, they should name the Stadium after him. TB12 Stadium

  8. Bbro Says:

    The truth I didn’t think we the Bucs had a chance to get Brady it’s changed all of us immediately in our outlook for our teams success. Great job to all involved in making that happen and to the team coming together as they did. It’s great to be a Buccanator 😉

  9. BA4President Says:

    Was anyone else super scared last Saturday when Giovani Bernard started limping?

    My buddy, Giants fan, looked at me and asked if GB was important for the Bucs to which I said “He’s our only free agent of the entire offseason!”

  10. Buckaroo Boozie Says:

    If the Bucs go 20-0 they should go back to Creamsicle uniforms with Brady’s face on helmet as bucco Bruce 🤣

  11. German Buc Says:

    Harry, IMHO it’s a small minority of Pats fans now hating Brady. The vast majority still loves TB, and a not-so-small number realized they’ve been fans of their QB, not the team, and also transferred to our beloved Bucs. I’m sure Joe has significant traffic from the Boston area on his little corner of the internet.

  12. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    ^^^ I agree completely.

  13. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Senor Harry he could retire with the Bucs then sign a 1 day contract with the Pat’s then retire with them. We could sell his rights for a draft pick.

  14. Pickgrin Says:

    BA4Pres – I saw Gio limp off the field and was also a bit concerned. But I figured if it was anything more than minor we would have heard about it by now…..

    At least the Bucs got through all offseason, training camp and Preseason – with no major injuries and no player in any sort of trouble.

    That is a major leg up for this team headed into the 2021 regular season.

  15. RC Says:

    I’m a quarterbacks fan. I was a John Elway fan till he retired. Happy to say I haven’t had to move on from Tom Brady yet.

  16. Charles Elliott Says:

    If not for Tom there would be no SB55 win period. He brought the team to relevance and brought the players the team needed to do it. You are a fool if you can’t see it. Go Bucs 2021
