Fighting Tom Brady, Running Tom Brady

December 13th, 2021

Big deal, so Tom Brady leads the NFL this season in passing touchdowns (36) and total yards passing (4,134).

No. 12 has ramped up his entertainment value!

How many mini-fights did Brady get in yesterday with the Bills? Three?

He also ran 7 times for 16 yards and a touchdown. That was Brady’s busiest and most productive day on the ground since he ran for his life on a four-sack day against the Eagles in 2015.

Oh, and the dude is 44 years old.

Joe can’t wait for Brady’s first taunting penalty on Sunday night, when the Bucs hammer the slimy Saints.

    Brady’s right–we need to take advantage of that 5.5 speed of his, do some designed run plays

  2. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go!

    Time to get even this week, and time keep stacking W’s to shoot our shot at the #1 seed.

    dont poke the bear, he’ll do fiesty things ( like rushing)

  4. AMI_Chris Says:

    Brady’s great, of course, and the main reason for the fantastic 2020 & 2021 seasons. But I hope he watches that 2nd half film and figures out how to get some guys open for first downs. 3 points in a half will not usually do the trick.

    i’m still waiting for him to throw a stiff arm… 🙂


  6. Bird Says:


    I thought it was 6.5 Forty time 😂
    Anyway that run for a first down where he stretched out his arm was pretty amazing for his athletic restraints . Got the crowd going. Got the team going. He is Neo for sure. He is the ONE!

  7. adam from ny Says:

    actually he needs to just stop… BA said


  8. Listnfrmafar Says:

    The man has the side step down. As far as him running NO, NO, NO unless ha absolutely has to. Probably a designed run play BA came up with to destroy his QB. Can’t wait until AB is back, who would you double? I often trash Evan’s but after yesterday I have to give him big cudos, he balled.

  9. '79 Defense Says:

    Nearly two years later, I still cannot believe we’re talking about Tom Brady playing for the Bucs.

  10. Beeej Says:

    Maybe when the Super Bowl comes, he can do one of those dives into the end zone where he does a complete flip

  11. Winny Testaverde Says:

    I love his old man “get of my lawn/field” attitude. If this doesn’t fire up his teammates…nothing will. He takes zero shat for the opponent. None…

  12. Tampabaybuscfan Says:

    Brady rules Buffalo & you could tell he was very motivated to beat them……missed in all of this was that he was somewhat off last night……several plays downfield when we simply needed to move the chains……wasted first down up the middle running plays & off-target passes…..thew up many 50-50 balls to Gronk that were just a bit off.
    The drives after the turnover & the failed fake punt were good examples.

  13. Infomeplease Says:

    I’m very happy he’s running for the Bucs and not the Pats!!

  14. Doctor Stroud Says:

    The Joe(s) have said that they want to do a deep dive into what happened in the second half, and I look forward to that. My theory is that the Bucs wanted so badly to put the game away and sit the starters that they pressed and relied too much on the big play instead of relying on the same methodical approach that was working in the first half. It seemed that the coaches and players all bought into that strategy. It’s a classic case of ‘group think’ that almost cost the Bucs a win…almost! Still, I’m so glad that they came away with the win! Go Bucs!

  15. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Tampa & Stroud, isn’t that the definition of NO Risk it No Biscuit?? Bucs almost didn’t make it to the dinner table. I despise that offensive thinking. There’s a time and place for it like 2nd & 1 or 2, not 3rd & 3 or 4. Tampa you’re a hater Brady had about 4 bad passes last night and a few he purposely threw away, not bad for 50 passes.

  16. Cobraboy Says:

    Who looks more athletic running the ball: Brady or Mike Glennon? 😉

  17. Cobraboy Says:

    Gotta give the Bills D some credit: they did a decent job defending the pass in the 2nd half, got pressure, and covered well.

    Until OT.

  18. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Defense played great.

  19. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Cobraboy, weren’t they the #1 pass D in the league? I hope other DC’s don’t scout them, they played Gronk perfectly, use their speed and stay underneath him in his chest area. Gronks not going to out run them. No way else to cover that monster.

  20. ocala Says:

    Bucs will win by at least three scores this week

  21. Mikejp Says:

    I think TB was exhausted after those rushing. It could affect the accuracy in the second half.

  22. PassingThru Says:

    Some folks here were saying that Buffalo’s pass defense wouldn’t be any good after they lost Tre’Davious White, but that’s just discounting their CB depth which is good, and their safety help, which is among the best in the league.

  23. Kentucky Buc Says:

    What happened in the second half? The other team was good too.

  24. Ed Says:

    Brady played a great game. The offensive game plan in the second half stunk and Bucs had to make that red zone stand to get off the field.

    I have to disagree with Tony Romo whining about pass interference no-calls.

    The incompletion where Carlton Davis was locked up was not even close to interference. The Bill WR plowed into him and his momentum pushed Davis backwards. The refs were pretty good last night, they let defenders play tight without calling the ticky-tock interference penalties.

    The one on Evans was because when Evans tried to cut inside for the ball, his path was blocked by the Bill defender who wasn’t playing the ball. He totally stood in the way of Evans right to make that cut. Good call at that point in the game.

  25. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    When he scored the td you could see his head bobbing up and down really quickly as if he was barking at the D line saying “that’s right!! What’s the score!! Who’s house is this!!!” …. A pissed off Brady is unbeatable!!

  26. Buczilla Says:

    Gosh damn I despise the saints and Payton and this should be another awesome game.

  27. D-Rok Says:

    There was a Brady rush where he actually initiated contact with a defender and tried to run the defender over to get a first down. I immediately shouted: “Brady’s gonna be on Angry Runs on Tuesday GMFB.”

    Joe, can you use your influence and call Kyle Brandt to get TB12 on Angry Runs? That would be freakin’ awesome and hilarious!!!

    GO BUCS!!

  28. Listnfrmafar Says:

    D-Rok great post. 👍

  29. PassingThru Says:

    Brady’s too slow to be carrying the ball. Maybe they should try him at FB instead.

  30. Eddie Marz Says:

    Any time the QB runs I get nervous. The smart ones slide or get out of bounds. Brady doesn’t take any big hits. I’m more concerned on those one yard runs at the goal line. Don’t want him buried under three of four 300 Lb. linemen. GO BUCS!

  31. Steven L. Benner Says:

    Let’s Go Brady!!! I understand Coach Arians’ concerns about Tom Brady running & getting QB Sneaks- Brady is a smart guy that’s why he is still playing at the age of 44! No one wants him to get hurt….we love the guy- as long as he plays smart and knows when to quit we’ll all be alright. I think it’s AWESOME that he is moving around more!!! Looks great out there!!! Is playing better than he ever, even better than his years as a Patriot!!! Coach Arians, Don’t hold him back like “DOLLAR BILL” Brady is smart & knows what to do.
