Another Example Of How Tom Brady Changed The Bucs

October 3rd, 2021

Changed man.

If Joe reads between the lines here, it doesn’t bode well for Tom Brady’s Bucs predecessor at quarterback.

Yeah, you know the Bucs-Belicheats-Brady reunion game is overhyped when no less of an authority than the Wall Street Journal Magazine did a piece on 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.

Joe is bored by the whole thing and really doesn’t give a flip, probably because Joe doesn’t give a flip about the Belicheats.

Joe very much cares about the Bucs winning and getting to 3-1 in what is shaping up to be a very tight playoff race.

The Wall Street Journal feature typed by Jason Gay studies how Brady is becoming more open publicly than he ever was in New England. That’s because the grim Bill Belicheat frowns even more on players basking in the limelight than he normally frowns and grouses.

Even Bruce Arians said he saw a change in Brady’s personality, and that began right about the time the Bucs went on their championship run of finishing the season with eight straight wins.

“You could see the personality come out more and more,” Arians says.

It had an effect on team confidence: “The rest of the locker room adapted to the personality of ‘Hey, he’s been here, he’s done it. He’s telling us we’re good enough. We believe it.’”

Well, the first thing Joe thought was, why didn’t the Bucs have the confidence or have their confidence built up by Brady’s predecessor?

Maybe the rest of the Bucs weren’t all that excited about him, at least not as exciting as it was to watch him?

    The coaching staff can never have the influence that someone like Brady has.

    Um…because Winston had not been there and done that?

    Hard to inspire guys if you haven’t accomplished much.

  9. Buczilla Says:

    Winston is not a good player and Brady is the best football player to ever live. Pretty easy answer to me. 😋
