Tom Brady’s Room For Improvement May Be Showing

September 23rd, 2021


This past offseason Bucs quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen believed the Bucs’ offense, which averaged 30 points a game in the regular season and through the playoffs, was eight games (or a half-season) from peaking.

Already through the first two games of 2021, we may be seeing signs of that prediction.

The Bucs currently lead the NFL in points scored with 79. For those who struggle at math, that means the Bucs are averaging just a hair below an absurd 40 points a game.

That would be an NFL record if it held up. The current record is 37.9 points per gae, held by the 2013 Denver Broncos with Peyton Manning.

There are also some other signs.

As Jenna Laine of ESPN pointed out in a recent video report, the guy under center this year has a completion percentage on throws into the end zone of 73 percent through two games. That’s salad-bar-hating, park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, numbers-rules-peeved, helmet-tossing, football-punting, Bucs-Super-Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady.

Last year? His average on the same throws was 45 percent.

The way the Bucs have been a machine in the red zone and how Brady is on fire, if the Bucs can ring up 30 on the Rams on Sunday, this may be an offense for the ages.

What a time to be alive!

    I’m not sure if Brady needs to improve. I think the rest of the team just has to catch up to his level of perfection.

    Brady hasn’t so much misfired as his boys have dropped or tipped the ball.

    They will get better in the next few weeks, I hope.

    Pete prays to The Football Gods TB12 stays for another season b/c I’m not watching Kyle Trask next w/o ripping out my eyeballs first

  3. Robert Says:

    ya know……the longer that moniker gets the less I read of the article.

    never know when it’s gonna end, so I just skip that paragraph short of the last line.

    but I guess you got me to post. would be nice to post something positive though.

  4. SteveK Says:

    Protect, appreciate, collaborate, and hopefully we can have TB12 play another 2+ years. May this franchise continue to utilize Brady for his leadership skills and ask for his input.

    Really Joe, enough of this BS. It’s lame and not amusing

  6. SB~LV Says:

    Time for the running game to step up !

  7. Steven007 Says:

    Robert, Philly, I do the very same thing as I’m sure many of us do. Literally the moment I see it begin I scan down to see the end of the paragraph. It becomes a habit to ignore it but I’m still never sure why they insist on maintaining it. It used to bother me more, but it’s clear they want to maintain the supposed irreverence of it all. Minor complaint at the end of the day. Still no site that compares to this one for info on our favorite team. Not even close. It’s like a girlfriend with an annoying habit or tick that you ignore because everything else about her is great. JBF is that girlfriend. 😉

  8. Robert Says:

    I had an ex fart on me. deal-breaker

  9. Dewey Selmon Says:

    You right Robert, gotten to the point I skim a little and go straight to the comments. If someone owns a business and a majority of the customers are having 1 particular problem any decent owner would correct it.

  10. Biff Barker Says:

    SB, couldn’t agree more. Helps our D from getting gassed.
    We’re gonna take whatever the defense chooses to give us.
    This would be a great week for RoJo to redeem himself.

  11. Listnfrmafar Says:

    When your secondary stinks, don’t you have to?

  12. StickinUp4Centers Says:

    OMG! The writer is putting a long nickname before Tom Brady’s name! How dare he blasphemy my savior, my football messiah. I like totz can’t get over it even though I know it is coming in every article and can easily skip over it. This just gets me like sooooo angry I have to comment on it for every article despite knowing that commenting on my displeasure is never going to change a thing. I just had to vent that this moniker, on an article that realistically, has no significant impact on my life, is really making me distraught!

    MONIKER MANIA is alive and well!!!! GO JBF GO BUCS!!!!

  14. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I guess if Joe didn’t do this his posts would be a paragraph long, IMHO wouldn’t be a bad thing.

  15. Bird Says:


    You guys realize this is rod munch right?
    He is anonymous as well since he posted identical paragraphs mistakenly with the two different names

    It so weird how the muncher claims other people get triggered

    Go to any open thread. The dude is unhinged. Absolutely Cray cray.

    And yes the monikers will never change people. Joe is cray cray too by the way. The monikers between the present Goat and previous former whatever is down right creepy. The biggest head scratcher in the history of JBF

  16. Defense Rules Says:

    Listnfrmafar … Our Secondary certainly isn’t setting the world on fire (well, in a good way at least), but I don’t think they’re as bad as what a #30 pass defense ranking implies. Todd Bowles hybrid 3-4 defense depends heavily on our pass rush being effective, and it hasn’t been. We’re blitzing the daylights out of our opponents, but our blitzes haven’t been effective IMO.

    Through 2 games, our opponents have run 146 plays (38 runs, 106 passes, 2 sacks) and we’ve blitzed 100 times total (Rams in comparison have only blitzed a total of 27 times in 2 games). And yet we’ve only got a total of 20 Pressures out of those 100 blitzes (2 sacks, 12 QB Knockdown, 7 Hurries). White (4 Pressures) & LVD (1 Pressure) own 25% of our total 20 Pressures. Suh (3), Gholston (3), RNR (1) & Vea (1) own 40% of the 20 Pressures. BUT … Shaq (3), JTS (2), JPP (0) & Nelson (0) only account for 25% of the Pressures. IOW, our OLBs aren’t getting it done.

    Might be wrong, but it looks like the ineffective pass rush AND the excessive, ineffective blitzing are negatively impacting the Secondary effectiveness. Of our opponents 77 completions, 15 have been against White (of 16 targets), 14 against LVD (of 16 targets), 4 against JPP (of 4 targets) and 4 against Shaq, RNR & Nelson together (of 5 targets). That’s 37 completions, almost HALF of the 77 total allowed, against the ‘close-in guys’. They’ve allowed a completion rate there of 90%. Boggles the mind.

  17. Steven007 Says:

    Bird, interesting. I can totally see that. He has cut down on juvenile suggestions of various forms of suicide for people that don’t agree with him though. There’s that.

  18. Ben green Says:

    Brady had been dealing with the knee for his last 2 years in NE I’m not sure why he didn’t elect for surgery. Maybe he thought if Alex rubbed it enough, the injury would heal. He is definitely smoother in the pocket than he has in a while. It’s mystifying to some, but according to Alex and Tommy, anyone can do what Brady’s doing. You just have to make the same sacrifices. Ben doesn’t know about all that.
    This stat will tell you how the league has evolved. Brady is 14 TD passes away from having more TD’s in his 40’s than he did in his 20’s. It’s an astounding start that tells you how the Patriots won titles early and late in his career. It also tells something about what an utterly unfair advantage offenses have

  19. Youngbucs Says:

    Bird you know he gotta do that I wouldn’t be surprised if others do. Especially since they’re wrong 99 percent of the time.

  20. BucsCoolade Says:

    His room for improvement is the training room with Guerrero..

  21. Paul Bready Says:

    Love your posts but please enough of the long drawn out adjective laced description of TOM BRADY !!! It’s getting more than old ❤️😎

  22. Ne+ bucs fan Says:

    doesn’t even bother me anymore I just skip over it

  23. Kevin Wayne Says:

    The over-used, not-as-clever-as-someone-must-believe moniker can easily be skipped over and ignored, so no big deal. But that unprofessional, 70s era, cartoonish font used in the header is not so easily ignored. I avoided this website for a year after finding it because I thought it was in just junk coming out of someone’s basement. It turns out to be good content hiding under bad graphics.

  24. George Says:

    Tom why do you put up with crap this guy writes in his first paragraph
    That never happened in Boston. Bilicheat has learned his lesson come back to Boston.
