QB Stats Shift In Tom Brady’s Favor Over Bye

November 8th, 2021

What a life Tom Brady leads. The guy gets a week off and looks even better among his elite quarterback peers.

Matthew Stafford came back to earth with the Rams (7-2) yesterday and threw just one touchdown against two interceptions versus the Titans.

Through nine games, Stafford has 23 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. In eight games, Brady has 25 TDs and just 5 picks, despite leading the NFL with 343 pass attempts.

There was talk of Stafford as a top MVP candidate, but Joe confidently would give Brady the edge after yesterday. Brady has 39 pass plays of 20 or more yards this season. That ranks second only to Derek Carr in the NFL.

Brady also has one more first-down throw that Stafford and is just 121 passing yards behind him despite playing one less game.

Joe’s favorite Brady stat? He’s eaten just 12 sacks. That represents the best sacks-to-pass-attempts ratio in the NFL. And for the last two sacks (during the worthless, senseless final series against New Orleans) Brady shouldn’t have even been on the field.

Yes, Brady is Joe’s MVP through Week 9.

    Stafford has played 1 more game than TB12 too. Things are looking good for an MVP run

  2. Casual Observer Says:

    Wonder how old was the NFL’s oldest MVP?

  3. Craig Says:

    If our defense turned into the Titans defense, it would have been the perfect bye week.

    Casual Observer,

    I’ll take Tom Brady age 40 season for $500. 😀

    I hope he gets it. What he has done not only with stats, but lifting a crappy team to SB, and still going strong @ 44, is unbelievable.
    Let’s Go TB12

    07 and 2010 were Brady’s two mvp seasons. It didn’t end well as both times, he was beaten, once on the superbowl. The other was a one and done in the divisional round against the Jets. Just like an undefeated season, Ben wants nothing to do with leauge MVPs, because it means absolutely nothing. The last leauge MVP to win a Superbowl was curt warner. Only 10 leauge MVPs have ever won the Superbowl. Ben believes a connection exists.

    In the superbowl

    [There’s no sense going where you are trying to go. To suggest Kyler Murray or Lamar Jackson would get an award for anything other than their football play is absurd. That is, unless you have never watched them play. Joe is pretty sure you can find other sites to spread the disease you attempted here. Just not on this site. — Joe]


    Hilarious that one of the Joe’s didn’t want Brad or doubted him for Squinting Crab Leg Stealer Who can No Longer Take An Uber Anywhere

    Fact: I would take Tom Brady at age 44 over any other QB at any age.

  13. Anonymous Says:

    I like his chances if Bernard gets more playing time.

  14. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    To take off from the main point here…. Stafford represents a great example of how important it is for a player, especially a talented a QB, to get to the right situation during their careers.

    I’m old enough to remember the fate of Archie Manning. (That’s right Peyton’s and Eli’s poppa!) He was incredibly gifted but was wasted by the rules for the draft, free agency and other factors during his time in the NFL. We can only speculate, but he might have become a GOAT before Brady under the right circumstances.

    I’m sure other people can come up with other examples as well.

    Brady has had 3 MVP seasons. Brady is the oldest MVP at 39 years old. Year they played the eagles. He will shatter a record and one of many that won’t be touched. He is football

  16. unbelievable Says:

    Why should Brady have not been on the field?

    We had plenty of time to score if he didn’t throw an awful interception.
