Tom Brady: COVID Casualty Expected

September 23rd, 2021

Virus talk.

The Bucs quarterback said today we all should have seen this coming.

And it will happen again he said.

The words are coming from Tom Brady and he was referring to furniture-tossing, bicycle-throwing Antonio Brown testing positive for The Sickness.

Brady, in his weekly presser, was asked about Brown likely missing Sunday’s game against the Rams. There is a slim chance Brown could play but he would have to test negative twice, with the test administered 24 hours apart, for him to be eligible to play. The Bucs’ team plane leaves Saturday afternoon from Tampa.

Brady said a starter going down with the COVID was expected and another starter at some point this season should be expected to miss time.

“I think everybody knew this situation was going to happen with someone,” Brady said. “And I’m sure it is not going to be the last one. We will just have to deal with it the best we can. It’s just the way things are now.”

Brady seemed to suggest Brown’s positive test may be rooted in more fans at games. Brady certainly cited full stadiums as a risk for The Sickness.

“We are definitely more at risk this year,” Brady said. “I don’t know what we can do about it.”

Now Joe has no idea how Brady can finger a full stadium as possibly the issue for Brown, or any Bucs player for potentially testing positive. Players are nowhere near the fans. You know, social distancing?

Unless a player does a Lambeau Leap-type stunt, he’s kept away from fans. Shoot, when stadiums were partially open last year in the playoffs Brady and other players were seen with family and/or friends and/or fans after the game.

If anything, players not being tested daily this year puts the players far, far more at risk than a soldout stadium. Even in pre-pandemic times, players were kept away from fans.
