“Eleven. Yard. Run.”

November 23rd, 2021

In the NFL’s official gamebook for last night’s Bucs win over the Giants, the distance on Tom Brady’s nifty and fun scramble for a first down is 10 yards.

Brady begs to differ.

In his postgame remarks, Brady was asked about his “10-yard run.” Brady quickly corrected the reporter.

“Eleven. Yard. Run.” Brady said. “They don’t happen very often so I do remember how far they go. It was pretty good.”

Looks like Tommy’s going to have to pull some strings with the NFL. It’s is officially a 10-yard run. That’s per the NFL official gamebook.

Joe has a hunch Brady knows how to get a hold of NFL strongman Roger Goodell.

    That was awesome. So cool to see him get so jacked up after that run and the crowd reaction.

    tom runs faster than lenny

  3. ModHairKen Says:

    The sidestep. The slide. The ball drop. The yelling. Beautiful.

  4. BuccaneerButters Says:

    I was absolutely pumped to see that run. Made me jump off the couch. I was a little worried he’d be creamed, but man was that awesome to see. When he got pulled, during the 4th, he wanted more. We left some points out there, I think everyone knows. It was great to see that run tho. He’s hungry.

    Also, how bout that crowd last night? Absolutely fantastic. Super quiet during the offense, and loud on 3rd downs for the defense. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that. We need that for the playoffs.

    All the garbage “the sky is falling” comments by various people on this blog about the Bucs being done, just took a kick in the teeth lol and a few cleat marks during Bradys run lol.

    To be 7-3 right now, and still they are not at full speed by any means health wise, is a good place to be, BUT NO TIME TO TAKE THE FOOT OFF THE ACCELERATOR!!!!

    The Colts will not run all over them, if the Bucs do not turn the ball over, then the Bucs will win in Indy, pretty simple.

    GO BUCS!!!!

    Yea like oneilbucs who celebrates Bucs losses but disappears when they win. Better luck next week you 🤡loser!

    Florio was crying on Twitter about how Brady slid with his cleats up

  8. Bucsfanman Says:

    Love to see him fired up like that!

    Florio is a whiny baby (but a good talk show host)

    But Lenny is a better player than Rojo in case you were going there.

  11. Thisisouryear!! Says:

    Brady was masterful. He spread the ball around beautifully. He stepped into the pocket last night which I think is a little outside his comfort zone.

    I appreciated SMB. Even if he allowed the catch, he was there for an immediate tackle. So great to see pressure on Jones. It’s tough watching JPP. He can’t do anything with that left arm. Even on the sideline he looked out of it. He’s a warrior for trying. I kind of wish he’d go under the knife and start the healing process, but I wonder if he’s thinking this is it. IMO the best game for the defense of the year by far.

    Awesome game. Go Bucs!!!

    I don’t think Lenny could have pulled off today TD run

  13. #8 Says:

    Great win to build upon.
    I hope Gronk didn’t get dinged up at all.
    AB yet to come back-
    More DB help also.

    Light at the end of the tunnel is a bit brighter today.

    Indy will be a big test.

  14. Medicated Pete Says:

    Tell us what “Boomer” Esiasen says today about his Nostradamus prediction that the Giants were gonna win. He’ll blame the Giants & not his stupid , feeble 70yr old, booze-soaked ammonia brain

  15. #8 Says:

    Boomer has a Medicated-Pete-Brain?

  16. Infomeplease Says:

    The BUCS aren’t peaking yet!!! MORE TO COME!!! Go Bucs!!

  17. ThomasEdwardPatrickBradyJr#12 Says:

    I have total faith that Vita Vea will be back against the Colts after seeing him in pregame warm-ups

  18. Medicated Pete Says:

    This is how great TB12 is….losing 2 games in a row was a massive deal that the entire sports world was talking about. Before he got here, losing 2 games in a row was NOTHING

  19. Jeagan1999 Says:

    My wife and I sat there yelling at the screen….”Get down, Tom! Get down!”

    Nifty run by TB…..let’s hope he doesn’t have to do that every week!

    Big shout out to the Oline for keeping him clean all night!

  20. alton d green Says:

    I’ve always said that our corners need to crowd the receivers. Well congrats Todd. It took 11 games but you finally get it. Also they came after the receivers on screen passes instead of standing there waiting for them

  21. Medicated Pete Says:

    Mike Florio is losing his mind right now on his radio show about TB12 sliding w/ spikes up. Florio is also ripping ESPN for doing a Brady documentary series (but yet he LOVED the Michael Jordan documentary Lololololol he must’ve forgot about that).

  22. Capece is Kaput Says:

    Speaking of great runs… Mike Evans had his first career rushing attempt last night. 1 carry, 10 yards, 1 first down.
    It came on that first drive of the night, which also featured a run by Godwin. That drive was flawless. They mixed up runs with passes. It was top level play calling with top level execution. I know we have seen a lot of great things from the Bucs in the last few years, but I can’t remember a more creative drive. They just did whatever they wanted to do however they wanted to do it. Set the tone from the start.

  23. Coburn Says:

    August yeah I couldn’t stand throwing in the towel so early and called some people quitters after last game. You wouldn’t believe the reactions I got. Nothing is certain at this point, could go either way really

  24. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Indy has Johnathan Taylor, Bucs have Brady the speedster. There was NO WAY TB12 was losing last night and the team knew it and fed off it. Not on the post season wagon yet. Fing Gronk, how good is he? 5 fractured ribs and a punctured lung??? Kelce or Kiddle couldn’t wear his jock.

  25. D-Rome Says:

    During the Manning-Cast Eli said the longest run of his career happened at Raymond James. Peyton more or less said, “Yeah, I’m sure the audience really wanted to know that.”

  26. JimBuc2 Says:

    Capece is kaput
    Great to recall that McKay one-liner! I remember gagging on my beer when I heard it. Topped only by his opinion of his offence, “I’m in favor of it” RIP John McKay.

    LFG Bucs!
    Lets go Brandon!!

  27. Kev@Inverness Says:

    JimSuck2, #ThankYouBrandon!!

  28. Bird Says:

    So swampbuc was wrong again

  29. StevieGuy55 Says:

    I love how TB12 slid “cleats up” like a BB runner sliding into 2nd base trying to break up a double play also. His slide was so intimidating that the oncoming Giant tackler wisely jumped up and over the aggressive slide.

  30. Jersey buc Says:

    Alton,
    You can’t press the receivers if you don’t have the corners. I agree with you 1000 percent but truth is the back ups can not play man. Bunting is an underrated corner you see how much they missed him.
    Bowles did an excellent job last night mixing the play calling. Davis should be back hopefully sooner rather than later

  31. WorldChamps Says:

    I loved how we bounced back last night. While we were far from perfect we were in control the entire game. Go Bucs! Also 5-0 at Home!

  32. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    That run and his reaction after got me so jacked up. I can’t imagine how pumped the other players must have been.

  33. SB Says:

    What Capece is Kaput said. That drive was the definition of Flawless. Not one play for zero gain! Best drive I have ever seen us make since TB got here

  34. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Smarmy Mike Florio continues to bellyache about the run…making it sound like it was a malicious Ty Cobb like tactic. Truth is Florio is a Vikings fan and can’t get over the fact the Bucs landed Brady and his team is saddled with Kissing Cousins. Almost every Buc article he trots out is anti-Brady.

  35. Bosch Says:

    If TB12 says it was eleven yards, then it was eleven yards. End of discussion.

  36. Mike C Says:

    Yes Bird

    *********************************************************
    That would be tackler was lining up to flatten TB for the audacity of running at all. I like to think TB saw that and slid that way to teach him a lesson about the audacity of wanting to tackle the GOAT!
    He DID make contact BTW. You could tell by the way the the tackler flipped and landed!
    Pure “old school” aggressiveness!
    All of that being said, I don’t really need to see TB scramble like that again.
