Tom Brady A Loser (This Week)

December 21st, 2021

Sad label applied by CBS.

Sometimes, Joe forgets how the other half lives. And the other half is just chomping at the bit to dance on the grave of Tom Brady.

Prior to the Bucs acquiring Brady, Joe may have watched Brady play twice in the past decade. Joe was so, so burned out on the Belicheats and just didn’t watch them. Joe watches sports for entertainment, not aggravation. So, therefore, no Belicheats games for Joe.

Yes, that meant no live Super Bowls for Joe sometimes. Re-read the previous paragraph for that. And Joe openly celebrated upon learning the Belicheats had lost in the AFC title game. That meant Joe got to watch the Super Bowl!

Once Brady came to the Bucs and Brady quickly won Joe over, well, Joe forgot how the anti-Brady crowd is. After Sunday’s dreadful beatdown by the slimy Saints, Joe has noticed the Brady haters have come out of the woodwork.

And they are letting their hatred flow. John Breech of CBS Sports seems to be jumping at the opportunity, he admits in picking the winners and losers of Week 15.

Loser: Tom Brady. We don’t ever get to list Brady in the losers column, so I’m going to take advantage of it now. Not only did he get shut out for the first time since 2006, but Sunday night’s loss also marked the FIRST TIME in his career that he was shut out in a home game.

There have been a few Bucs clunkers by Brady. And just when Joe thought perhaps Father Time finally was catching up with Brady, then Brady would go out and shred a few teams and look like he was 30 again.

Joe sure hopes that is the case here. Again.

    Brady is running on fumes

  2. firethecannons Says:

    Brady still is the man but no doubt the offensive line better get the message that they need to protect way better and leftwich needs to have a game plan on what to do if/when AB goes down he needs a plan on what plays to call if certain personnel are the only ones available. Leftwich was awful–inability to get a 3rd down was awful–some of his calls on 3rd down were fcking criminal! We need to get OJ going and Brate going way more–they need to spend a ton more practice time with Brady now as OJ has been on the bench or blocking or standing around for the whole season. and use scotty miller occasionally for a long ball–forget anything else he cant get open. Perriman and TJ on the mesh routes–crying out loud help these 3rd string guys get open. Brady needs to say no f. you to leftwich when he calls for bomb on 4th and 1. so frustrated–Joe get in on the interview with loser Leftwich and ask him about his 3rd down calls!

  3. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Medicated Pete: You probably said the same thing last season, under a different name (name changed because all of your “predictions” were garbage).

    Take another sedative three, Pete.

    Brady can no longer carry a team. It’s why he’s not in New England anymore. He needs the talent around him. Unlike JW, who had Peyton Barber, Martino, most guys I don’t remember his name but with that sorry talent I don’t recall being shut out like that
    You fail to mention that Brady helped the Bucs WIN A SUPER BOWL HIS FIRST YEAR WITH THE TEAM, and that a lot of good players signed with Tampa Bay because Brady is the QB. These omissions make you look like a dunce, Lamarcus.

    Pete’s moment by moment “post bait”- like Click Bait, but post bait for comments. lol
    So I commented lol

    “We don’t ever get to list Brady in the losers column, so I’m going to take advantage of it now.”
    -this is a what a loser types, John Breech 💩💩💩

    TB12 GOAT

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  7. Bucsfanman Says:

    Same ‘ol, same ‘ol!

    It’s amazing at how many non-Bucs fans there are that come out of the woodwork when we lose. Even more so after Brady’s arrival.

    To quote my beautiful wife, “SCOREBOARD!”

  8. Lamarcus Says:

    Naw. It’s like you said yesterday… just looked like they ran out of plays

  9. Fprmally Tampa2 Says:

    Haven’t been on here in awhile, But I’ve been enjoying the last Year 1/2 with the rest of you. Why isn’t anyone talking about how and why our Star players
    were put out of the game by some questionable tackling in that game?
    What NFL coach was suspended from the NFL, along with a couple of players, for a year for offering bounties to his players for putting opposing players out of the game?
    Sean Peyton of the New Orleans Saints, that’s who! But after watching that game the other night I’m convinced that “someone” brought the bounties back. And why you “fans” aren’t complaining is beyond me. That happened since Joe started this site. And I’m sure he hasn’t forgotten it. When 3 key players get knocked of of the game something smells. Especially with the Saints past record.

  11. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Formally Tampa2: I watched the game once, live, so tell me if I missed something, but I’m not sure what you’re talking about. Defenders go for low tackles all the time. I didn’t see anything dirty with the Fournette and Mike Evans tackles. Did you?

  12. Wild Bill Says:

    Hey I have tremendous respect for Brady. What he did last year was beyond belief. But last year is in the past. This year’s Brady looks different to me. I don’t see the boyish enthusiasm he had last year. In its place is a rather dull expressionless look on his face. There just isn’t the upbeat team cheerleader expression . Instead I see a rather dull look to his eyes as he stands under center. Why the change? Is it father time finally catching up to Tom? Or is there an underlying physical issue? Gone is the long throw game. Is he physically unable to play at last years high level. Or is he totally stressed with the coaching staff starting with the top on down ? Last year he was the teams leading cheerleader. Now he looks stressed and depressed. I can only guess but something is going on. Is there a conflict with Arians? That would be my personal guess. Who ordered the dink and dunk offense? Is Brady totally frustrated with the game planning? And will Tom even want to come back next year. I am seriously beginning to doubt it.

  13. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Going for low tackles and launching at the knees with no attempt to wrap up are two entirely different things.

  14. Jersey buc Says:

    Some of you people man. Dam such cry babies! Look Sunday was terrible for whatever reason saints just have us bullied. We will win out hopefully guys get healthy. I been watching this team since 98. I watched some bad bad football for a long time. Bucs are 10-4 coming off a super bowl win last year. Let’s just beat the tired ass panthers n move on. Enjoy Brady while he is here cuz you see it again for a long time

  15. Noles Says:

    Wild Bill

    If any of these divorce rumors are true then that’ll do that to a man…. No doubt

  16. Pewter Power Says:

    That’s not hating that’s the reality of the situation. It was an embarrassing L too a division rival you are familiar with so there were no surprises.

  17. Pewter Power Says:

    This entire offense played like Winston was under center so I guess this is what we should expect when Brady retires.

  18. #8 Says:

    Brady doesn’t need to prove anything-

    Here we are again, one more time, where he can prove it to the world; again.

    Can he pick the pieces up one more time? We’ll see-

    I do agree this is likely his last year. No other quote was more telling to me than when he said the ‘joy’ from the wins do not outweigh the anxiety from the losses. That one statement I cannot get past. Something tells me his heart finally isn’t in it 100% and anything less than 100% = retirement. Last year he had to prove it was 51% Tom & 49% Bill. He’s got nothing left to prove.

  19. alton d green Says:

    I wasn’t going to comment but i can’t pass this up. I know haters are gonna hate. I’ve been a Brady fan since he first went to Mi. I’ve always said that if I was a fan of any of the other 31 teams, I would hate him too. That’s just human nature. BUT some of you should be ashamed. Go back to watching ESPN. I’d love to see the Bucs repeat in spite of the coaching not BECAUSE of the coaching. Then i’d love to see him retire and tell Tampa Bay to go to he&^. And throw the Lombardy trophy in the river. Sooner or later you pu*&$##s are going to be right.Look how many times idiots said the Earth was flat before they were educated

  20. Cassius55 Says:

    Brady is taking a beating this week – rogers didn’t take as much when the Packers lost 38-3 to these saints – so just haters.

    The offense played like they had been out partying all night. An uncharacteristic lack of pass protection & uncharacteristically dropped balls, then all phases of the kicking were subpar. Refs could have helped a bit – had a few misses. The injuries are really concerning – Chris Collinworth pointed out on the Godwin hit – that while the hit was legal, you can’t find a better example of a defenseless receiver. Whenever crap happens & the Pats are involved, everyone goes back to the cheating history. So I’m inclined to agree that New Orleans was doing whatever they could (albeit by the rules) to remove players from the game. I also believe the entire Bucs team have got the Saints in their heads. In reality their just a bunch of full of themselves football players who just got to a .500 record with 3 weeks to play. Forget it and move on – send the haters back into the woodwork.

  21. stpetebucsfan Says:

    To win a SB you have to enjoy some serious luck…we have the luck of a great schedule to finish…but the other perhaps most important part of luck…injuries is starting to threaten our chances.

    ROJO is a nice change of pace with quickness and speed but he cannot pound the rock…at all! It’s all flashdance with ROJO. Playoff Lenny on the other hand can do it all. We can lose Godwin but we need Playoff Lenny healthy. REST HIM!

    ME13’s hammy is now frightening me…is it going to linger. REST HIM!

    We need what…one more win to insure the playoffs. Two games against Carolina and the game against the Jets should take care of that. If our second string can win one of those three we don’t deserve the playoffs.

    Home field advantage is nice but the most critical home gone. We’re going to have to win at Green Bay it’s as simple as that. We’ve done it before and we can do it again…IF we are HEALTHY!

  22. Bbro Says:

    I’m not sure why we don’t have more quick slants say for instance third and one and they throw an incomplete 30 yard pass to Gronk what’s up with that crap and several other plays that were long in the making got Brady pressured and sacked a few times.

  23. stpetebucsfan Says:

    What Cassius just said! Spot on.

    It was ONE game.

    As for Brady…it’s human nature. Ask yourself do you like Tom Cruise?

    I honestly do not know why I do not. Scientology? Perhaps? Incredible success? Perhaps. The boyish captivating smile that women live and I envy. Perhaps.

    Bottom line is it’s easy to resent those more successful, better looking, more athletic, wealthier than us. Not right but it is what it is.

    Apologies to Tom Cruise. LMAO

  24. Francisco Guzman Says:

    They better bounce back against carolina. They need to get creative and other players have to start stepping up. Guys like tyler johnson, Scotty Miller, etc.

  25. Craig Says:

    Brady is fine, until he gets hit. The glass temple he has built his body into shatters when it hits the dirt. We have seen that repeatedly.

    The best course would be to activate Trask and have him go in when Brady comes apart; because once it happens, it stays for the rest of the game.

  26. Razor Ramone Says:

    Every team and every QB has looked like utter dog squat this year. Come on now, any given Sunday. Go Bucs. And I think pete used to use a Chris Thomas and a derogatory Steve Dumeig moniker.

  27. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Glass Temple Brady > Trask with 0 experience

    GO BUCS!!!

  28. BucsCoolade Says:

    I thought he was getting beat up by buffalo.. but that was the mental beat down, this was the physical ass kik.. and it will be interesting to see the bounce back with all the subs .

    This was a major knock down but Brady learned a lot from his 20years with best coach of all time belicheek.. who teaches how to get both cheeks into the next team effort.

    As opposed to the the half assed effort last week..;)

  29. Doctor Smith LIS Says:

    Nobody else mentioned that he was on the injury list for his throwing arm.
    Might have played a part in his passing woes.
    This is pure speculation but I think he’s getting some pressure on the home front.

  30. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Craig: What are you talking about? Brady is still going. If Brady fell apart every time he was hit, would the Bucs be 10-4 this year? Would they have won the Super Bowl last year? You really want Trask to play this year?

    Bbro: It’s pretty simple, Brady thought those passes could be completed, or draw a pass interference penalty. He was looking to make a big play. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

  31. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Unless I was watching a different game, TB12 was bad and so was the entire team except for good effort from the defense. I am not pinning Brady as the Loser of the week but the entire offense and coaching staff get that award. But hey, even that awful display of Football could garner a dundies award.

  32. Boo Radley Says:

    Why are so many reluctant to lay the blame where it belongs, second to bad coaching? The Bucs’ O-Line bought all their ‘rags to riches’ hype this year and decided to mail in the Aints game. Seriously, I’ve followed Brady his entire career and NEVER has he played behind five players who were ‘forked-lifted’ back into him on nearly every passing down? How can THAT be attributed to Aints’ “dirty playing”? This game was lost by the coaches and the O-Line. fn/ I’m sure Tom Brady feels horrible for setting Chris Godwin up with that season-ending crosser. Very uncharacteristic of Brady who typically tries to always keep his receivers safe. That pass was thrown out of sheer desperation. Knowing the GOAT, he will do EVERYTHING in his power to help Chris get back on the field next Season.

  33. BucsCoolade Says:

    His fumble was a huge failure that cost big.. just like is fumble on last drive in pats-eagles super bowl. The QB is the guy who can lose the game.. or the flip .. win it.. moreso than other players.. 😉

  34. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Sorry to burst some bubbles here but Evan’s will be fine. He recognized what the Saints were doing and faked the injury. To be honest, I don’t blame him, Bucs couldn’t have him going out on a cheap shot to. Watch how he steamed off into the locker room throwing his gloves and towels in the stands, if you pull a hamstring your not walking fast like that, even if it may not feel that bad common sense tells you to be careful. He knew he was next in line.

  35. Ed Says:

    Brady will be fine if he has clean pockets and the right play calls. Everyone knows he is the best play-action passer ever. I was at the game and most of the time he was not under center. The Bucs have been inconsistant with their game plans and doing the same things over and over. Some of them are not working.

    First off, the offensive line must play like they are protecting their children when TB is in the shotgun. He has to be able to step into his throws and the way the Saints were collapsing the pocket, he couldn’t.

    Secondly, there is no reason to start a game with all shotgun formations and throwing every down. If they want to get Brady confident, get him a running game.

    Thirdly, his receivers cannot have all of those drops. Unacceptable.

    If the Bucs are going throw deep, throw it to Brown, Perriman and Miller, not Darden and Gronk. Use Gronk down the middle and in the seams. Forget about Darden, he doesn’t belong on the field period.

    If the Bucs coaching staff cannot come up with better game plans, especially offensively and the team struggles offensively these last 3 games, I think the Glazers will start pulling the plug on the current staff. Its common knowledge that the Bucs have the largest coaching staff in the NFL and over the past few games the team has looked horrible offensively. Lets see if BA and BL can challenge this offensive line to start playing up to the level they played at in earlier games.

  36. Soggy Says:

    Yeah He is washed up.. 10-4.. Eye roll……

  37. Bucamania Says:

    Pretty sure Evans wanted no part of that defense and sat himself. Dude pulls up on routes when a safety comes into the picture and always comes up small vs the Saints.

  38. George Says:

    After watching for over 20 years Brady would never throw deep on a 4th and1. If you noticed on one such call the center and both guards were 5 yards down the field when Brady handed to a rookie back who didn’t get the yardage !! Who called that play not Brady!! Also on several shot 3rd and 1 NO QUARTER BACK SNEAK, AGAIN A BRADY MOVE. I think Brady running the week before was halted by the HC.
    Also it appears to ” referrers ” let a the saints hit low ! Let bounty gate before the NFL should look to see if it happened again Monday night !!!

  39. steele Says:

    Brady is GOAT, period. He’s also 44, period. I don’t care who it is, a 44 yr old QB needs the entire team and all of the coaching to protect him, and to relieve him of the burden of doing anything except manage the game, and finish in the big moments. Peyton Manning was a wheezing pile of nothing, but the Broncos put a whole team around him. Same with Elway at the end, although Elway had plenty left. Just as Brady does now. Frankly, it would have been better for him to retire after hoisting the trophy.

    Bottom line, the coaching and the rest of the roster must deliver like never before, to compensate.
