Tom Brady Dodges Impact-Hit Question

November 20th, 2021

The only hit Tom Brady took on Sunday.

Tom Brady took one big shot in the first series against Washington and only one hit all game.

Bucco Bruce Arians, however, talked openly and confidently about how Brady absorbing that hit led to him getting rid of the ball quickly and throwing fewer deep balls in the game.

Something doesn’t add up there, as astute football fans know well.

Brady finally had his weekly news conference this afternoon at One Buc Palace, and Brady was asked about the effect of that hit on his passing throughout the game.

Joe will type the question below because Brady didn’t answer it.

“Tom, on the third play of the game last week, you took a pretty good shot after your released the ball. And then you didn’t take a heck of a lot of downfield shots from there. Was there any correlation with that? Coincidence? Was Washington doing something to takeaway the downfield shots?”

The mystery will continue.

Again, Brady didn’t answer the question.

Are we to believe the most experienced and successful quarterback in history took one hit and partially folded up his tent without getting hurt?

Joe hopes to see a much more confident and attack-minded Brady on Monday night.

    TB12 doesn’t divulge anything about his body. He’s tom cruise in mission impossible movies. That’s why he’s better & smarter than YOU

  2. Chuckstutz Says:

    I saw it with my own two eye bulbs. I believe.

  3. Listnfrmafar Says:

    He was hurt just doesn’t announce it. Brady’s one weekly interview versus BA’s 30.

  4. steele Says:

    “Never let them see you sweat.” Fine.

    But as Chuckstutz says, we saw it. Anyone taking that kind of hit will feel it. We will be kept in the dark about how he felt.

    No different than the hundreds of other times in the past. He will never give the enemy a reason to gloat.

    Yikes…Marpet looking like a matador there. Could have been a season-ender.

  6. crazybucs_CL Says:

    The only penalties justified, and encouraged, should be the ones to protect Tom.
    Linemen and whoever is assigned, to any play to protect Tom, after legitimate try, should switch to “Stop with ANY means TB12 getting hurt”.
    No exceptions: use holding, horse-collar, face-mask, don’t care, the worst possible fault… JUST PROTECT TB12.

    Let’s go B.

    Currently enjoying a bromosa at hooters in Clearwater beach with my Bucs gear!

    So what DID he say in response? The YouTube analysis made it pretty clear that there definitely was a correlation after that hit.

    His only throw downfield after that was the TD to Evans. No I’m not counting that last play of the 1st half either, which was more like a crossing route that went for a useless 30 yards as the clock expired and some jabroni grabbed his face mask at the end.

    He had guys open downfield most of the day, and chose to throw to a guy who only catches his passes seemingly 60% of the time.

  9. RandsABucFan Says:

    Brady was probably concerned more about self-preservation considering the season is literally a marathon, not a sprint.

  10. Hodad Says:

    By not responding to the question the answer is yes, he was hurt.

  11. infomeplease Says:

    The way TB12 is, he may very well have been hurt on that hit!! We may never know! Plus the offense schemes that were being called alot were “pick a side” of the field type .. The strong side or the weak side, rather than go thru your normal progression read, the QB reads the defense before and asap after the snap and chooses a side of the field to make a play. This was intentional to allow TB12 to get the ball out faster. Several plays, when TB 12 didn’t see the wide open receiver,TB12 had picked the field side where his check down receiver was, on the opposite side from where the wide open receiver was.

  12. Lamarcus Says:

    Seems like ever since the “Defense are like dogs…” comment.. The players aren’t taking it easy on him anymore.

  13. Eddie Marz Says:

    It’s not the hit that kept Brady from throwing down field. It’s the protection. If he feels he’s not going to get enough time to make long throws then he’ll adjust his game. He knows what he’s doing. Just get the rest of the team to man up. GO BUCS!

  14. bucschamp Says:

    looking at the pic it seems he was hit on his left shoulder. at least protected his rib but still need to look that shoulder.

    Yall need to stop making excuses for Brady !! Brady was not hurt he didn’t really have a bad game against Washington . The first pick was not his fault it was the receiver fault. But every time Brady don’t throw for 400 yards and 5 touchdowns yall try to find some kind of excuse . He’s not going to have a good game every week and that’s cool. Every game we lost yall do yall best to find a way to not blame Brady for nothing lol 😂!! I know if Jamies was still the quarterback all these losses will be his fault to most of yall on here. That’s the funny part about all of yall!! But when crush the Gaints I don’t want to hear it’s all Brady remember the team as well !! Yall act and sound just like the national media and their false narrative lol 😆 😂 !!! But these past 2 games have crush all of those narratives I’ve been telling yall for the longest !!

    Almost everybody here agrees that Brady did not look like himself after that big hit. He got smashed! Did he suffer an injury or just got his mind rattled. Brady won’t say so all we can do is speculate. But whatever happened to Brady, injury or not, he played like crap the rest of the game. My guess is a possible mild concussion.
