A Rare First For Tom Brady On The Line Today

January 9th, 2022

It’s hard to believe that through 16 games this season Tom Brady has achieved something he never experienced previously.

Brady leads the league in fewest sacks per pass attempts. His rate currently sits at just 3 percent. So, for the math-challenged, Brady is dumped three times for every 100 times he tries to throw a pass.

Mr. Seven Rings has never led the NFL in that category. Never.

In 2009, Brady was sacked on 2.8 percent of his attempts, but that did not lead the NFL and he was attempting about 10 fewer passes per game than he is now.

It’s no leap for Joe to type that the Bucs’ offensive line is the best pass blocking unit Brady has experienced. They’re a massive reason he is averaging 311 yards passing per game, which also leads the league.

It’s important for the Bucs to win today, but far more critical is protecting Brady. Joe is extremely confident that will happen — just as it did against Carolina two weeks ago.

    The GOAT

  2. Youngbucs Says:

    Oneilbucs said Brady would get killed behind this horrible line. Why because the previous QB was sacked almost 50x?

  3. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I have watched Brady his entire pro career and this is close if not the best oline he’s ever had. I don’t blame the run blocking on the line, I thinks it more of predictable non creative plays and with the exception of Bell and hopefully Vaughn, the Bucs backs aren’t slice & dice guys they’re bull rushers. It doesn’t hurt Brady releases the ball so quickly. All the more stats that make Brady the MVP. Don’t play Jensen.

  4. KnoxvilleBuc Says:

    Incredible stat. Brady certainly helps the O-line with quick decision making and understanding coverages but the line has played so well since he’s been here. The two are really working together with Brady pushing them to their potential and the line not wanting to let the franchise down honestly. Hopefully we can see the athleticism show out in the playoffs running the ball. Love to see Marpet pull with Smith, Wirfs getting to the next level. Play action will be the key for the playoffs.

    “…but far more critical is protecting Brady. Joe is extremely confident that will happen”

    Jensen may be out – Marpet to center and Stinnie (with a gimpy knee) to left guard. Not ideal.

  6. DaBux Says:

    My bid:


    TB12 likes to shake it up and BP knows how to get open. He will dominate against a suspect defense from the kittens.

  7. Im not tired anymore we Super Bowl Champs!! Says:

    When we draft another QB one day we need to get one with the quick release like Brady. That makes a huge difference. Go Bucs!

  8. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    I heard the 2 ex Panther Cheerleaders will be performing in a mock bathroom stall set up at midfield for halftime entertainment-should boost attendance.

  9. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    That’s pretty cool. Wonder if the Oline is the best in the NFL…

  10. You are fortunate to have sir tom Says:

    You are so lucky to have TB12

  11. Oneilbuc Says:

    Wich proves the changes of the plays from no risk it no biscuit offense. How many catches Lenny has I believe like 70 or something like that youngbucs ??

  12. Infomeplease Says:

    The GOAT must share credit with the offensive line. All pro bowl caliber! TB 12 does read defences great and unloads the ball fast!! Go Bucs!!

  13. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    The O-Line and TB12 are just in the same page, which is great! We just need our WR’s to be on the same page with the QB as well. GO BUCS !!

  14. Youngbucs Says:

    Yea ok oneilbucs still nobody throws deeper and more than the Bucs for Brady’s twos years. Convince yourself not me lol.

  15. Youngbucs Says:

    Even when Brady throws deep he’s quick in the process. Don’t make me go in the archives mr. Y’all think he gonna make this line better y’all think he gonna make this defense better. Question oneilbucs how times you have to be wrong until you get something right?😂 Super bowl or bust super bowl or bust proceeds to win super bowl imagine the odds lol it’s been a ruff two years my friend.

  16. BucsCoolade Says:

    Stat translation..

    Fear chucks before sacks

  17. Bird Says:


    Brady leads the league too in most completions over 20 yards …
    So your comment is actually the one to laugh at 😂
    Maybe some research before posting

  18. Izod Says:

    Where is this OL you speak of whenever we play the Saints?

  19. Wild Bill Says:

    @At Izod. Agreed. And the Rams. The Bucs do have an excellent O line but have been over powered in at least three games.

  20. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    O Neill what’s that got to do with anything? BA curtailed it to less riskit more biskit. A good coach molds his offense around his qb not the other way around. Jameis the Famous ATM your heart throb would have been perfect for it IF he didn’t make so many unforced turnovers. He had the ability to extend plays and is overly aggressive throwing where as Brady doesn’t. He’s more methodical and intelligent. Brady is the #1 reason we have a 2nd Lombardi and we are where we are now. Jameis could never do that

  21. Oneilbuc Says:

    David that’s what I’m saying bro it was a good coaching decision!!

  22. Oneilbuc Says:

    Catch and run screen passes to Godwin good offense for any quarterback.

  23. Oneilbuc Says:

    Just like I said all yall it’s all Brady why we won narratives has already been destroyed. Every game we lost was without the players on offense that was on the 2019 bucs it’s been proven already. That’s why yall were crying for AB and Gronk !!

  24. Oneilbuc Says:

    Youngbucs you been gone the past 3 or 4 weeks lol 😆 😂 and now you show up lol 😆 😂!! I guess after we beat this sorry team I guess it’s all because of Brady now right ?? Lol 😆

  25. Mikejp Says:

    Joe, who were the leaders during the last 10 years? Was that Brees?

  26. Youngbucs Says:

    Liar as usual oneilaints that’s your new name.

  27. Youngbucs Says:

    Mvp Brady so much for us wanting a washed QB!!!

  28. Youngbucs Says:

    Oh that’s a new excuse we weren’t running screens before Brady lol.

  29. Oneilbuc Says:

    Youngbucs. I guess now you back lol 😆 😂 !! You disappeared the past 3 or 4 weeks and now you back !! I get it you are more of a Brady fan than a bucs fan. When the bucs win than it’s all Brady but when we lose you disappeared or you blame everyone else regardless how Brady played !! I just give credit to the whole team because I’m a real bucs fan and plus I know football!! Again your narratives has been destroyed already. Lol 😆 🤣 and you right it was superbowl or bust when you have a all-star team on offense. I root for the bucs you root for Brady!!!

  30. Charles Sinacole Says:

    They don’t call him the GOAT for nothing. If he’s not the MVP of the NFL, then nobody should be. He’s more important to the Bucs than any QB is to their team.
