Another Historic First For Tom Brady

October 15th, 2021

How does this keep happening?

Tom Brady has been dominating in the NFL forever, yet week after week with the Bucs he’s setting new marks for greatness.

Sunday against Miami, it was the first time Brady threw 5 touchdowns and 400+ yards in the same game. Then last night against the Eagles, per the Twitterings of Adam Schefter this morning (no word on whether the Tweet was preapproved by Bucs GM Jason Licht), Brady completed 80 percent or more of his passes for the first time during a game in which he had at least 40 attempts.

Brady finished 34-of-42 against Philadelphia (81 percent) for 297 yards.

Crazy times.

For those wondering, Brady has completed 68.5 percent of his passes this season, despite a messed up thumb and a rainy-weather game. If he performed like this all season, it would be the second best completion rate of Brady’s storied career.

    Brady = Greatest theft in Free Agency!

    Nice reference to Pat McAfee 😉

    Ty Brady for being such an awesome Buc, and then you Belichick for being too proud, and not wanting the GOAT back under helm. He’s the best, and I hope he wins us another SB this year.

    I know that New England tends to let go of players a year too early rather than a year too late but take away the age and I have to wonder what the Patriots saw in Brady to make them think he was done. The greatest free agency acquisition for the Bucs history is arguably the biggest free agency blunder in Patriots history.

  5. Medicated Pete Says:

    Every time he completes a pass, it’s a new NFL record is one category or more. Mind boggling

  6. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    That high completion percentage came from throwing it mostly to TEs & RBs…..Phil did a great job against our WRs & put the slam on most of our WR screens….they were ready for everything except Lenny, OJ, Brate….

  7. Ed Says:

    There were a couple of things I noticed that were little things but were stopping the Bucs from getting first downs:

    There was a lot of slipping and sliding by Bucs, that field must have had moisture and the Bucs weren’t wearing the right shoes.

    There were some amazing leg tackles by the Eagles. At least 3 potential 3rd down tackles were made on one-on-one take downs just short of the sticks. Those Eagle defenders had them by one leg or ankle and were able to bring them down. Looked like the Bucs cutting plant and cut on that turf or those one-on-ones would have been big plays.

    Great to wake up with a win. TB12 really changed the culture and attitude of this team. BUCS fan, enjoy it. We may never experience this kind of winning ever again.

  9. AMI_Chris Says:

    Only major complaint from last night was that long pass to OJ on 4th & 2. It caused me to bellow a resounding “WTF?”. Seems like a quick 4-yd pattern to one of their 27 great receivers would have been easier. Other than that, great road win.

    hahahahaha! Firing shots over the bow of the USS Schefter Joe?

    Boston gave away the Bambino and now the Goat!!! Do you think they will have the curse of the Goat for a long time? Two really bad moves!!! Thanks Brady for being a Buc!!!

  12. Bird Says:


    You can take out “buc” in that stmt.
    best free agent in nfl history

    The winning est player in nfl history goes to the losing est franchise in all 4 major sports and wins a super bowl in his first year …in covid year with no real offseason

    Cause signing him as a free agent resulted in the free agent signing of Gronk , AB and Fournette. 3 outright studs ( 2 HOF)

  13. Bird Says:

    And on brady.

    Look at his not so great games this year

    At NE in pouring down rain against the winnest coach in nfl history who knew every tendency about brady. Brady threw no picks and drove down field for winning fg

    People are questioning last night game , he threw for almost 300 and 2. Not sure what happened on pick but put that on him. The other 2 in the cowboys game ( hail mary before half and hot potato lenny easy screen) – nah.

    We are watching greatness my friends. Dude is 44. 5-1 and look how many of our best players at their positions have been out with injuries. Brady has his timing down with all 3 receivers along with gronk. Scary times for opposing teams. And now lenny looks like a dominant running back who has really excelled in catching the ball this year. (Well except cowboy pick listed above)

  14. Listnfrmafar Says:

    AMI, I agree, that is a automatic reception with Gronk becuase of the timing involved and their experience playing together. Brate and OJ just don’t get there in time, so I assume they are.nit breaking quick enough, plus it looked like OJ limped a little after. What I didn’t get was not having Lenny on the field on 4th & 2. Line up in run formation even if it’s a pass, make them think. The burnt timeouts on 4th downs and to be honest punt the ball. It appeared Bucs got a.bit complacent in the 3rd up 21 points, Vea dancing and Bowles putting in the second string. That entire drive when Eagles ran the ball, Vea, Suh and Shaq were not in. Hat’s off to Brady, I played a lot of ball as a linebacker and jamming thumbs was common place but they hurt like a motha. I could knumb the thumb but Brady could not or he would lose feeling. You could see how much is was bothering him as the game went on. He’s a warrior for sure. Rojo who????

  15. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Bird, when they showed the replay Brown got stuck between 2 defenders couldn’t get down field, that’s what caused the over throw pick.

  16. Robert Says:

    More proud of the defense finally standing up to some degree…the secondary that is. Imagine when our depth has starting experience and our starters get back. Should be scary good!

  17. B-Bro Says:

    Uc this

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    It’s so great that Brady is setting all these records as a Buc…..

    I noted that Brady wasn’t having fun last night….he was all business…..don’t turn it over and lets get out of here with a W…..

  19. Rod Munch Says:

    What happened on that INT? Did someone fall, or did Brady really overthrow Godwin (I think) by a mile? It’s 3rd and 15, so it’s not like the INT mattered, it was the same as a punt, but I’m curious if it was a bad throw or a bad route or something else.

    Also the play didn’t bother me in the least since it was like a punt. Same exact thing Winston would do there, throw a pick just before the half on 3rd and long, and the nutjobs here would go insane saying it cost them the game. Last night, nothing.

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Last night was also the first time that Brady won a Thursday night game, in Philadelphia, while throwing less than 300 yards, against a 2nd year QB who threw for less than 150 yards but had 2 or more rushing TDs.

    Totally washed up. Noodle arm. Ha ha. Suck it haters!

  22. Crickett Baker Says:

    I sure hope Ira didn’t cry himself to sleep after too many Bromosas and picking the Eagles to win..

    Being from Boston this is the worst coaching move made by an ego
