Bucs Teammate Explains “Insane” Tom Brady

April 4th, 2022

Is Tom Brady crazy?

Well, a Bucs defensive player says he is and explained his views.

Joe’s referring to outside linebacker Anthony Nelson appearing on the Sir Yacht podcast.

Nelson says Brady’s impact on the Bucs roster is otherworldly and spreads to every player.

“He’s crazy. He’s insane in a really like highly competitive way. But he’s nuts,” Nelson said. “Even the highly competitive people in the NFL, like he’s just miles above everybody else. ‘Unfinished business,’ when he says that he means it. Like he is crazy meticulous and he is crazy competitive. Everybody [on the team] is looking around like, ‘This is Tom Brady. He’s got seven rings and he’s worried about this one throw in practice?’ It’s crazy to see but then it kind of pushes everybody else.”

Nelson went on to say Brady’s unretirement is inspiring and he will continue raising the game of every Buccaneer. Brady’s greatness and rabid obsession over ever detail drives players, Nelson said, because “everybody here knows he’s better than us” and you have to try and stretch to Brady’s standard.

    It’s the focking Catalina Wine Mixer!

  3. SRQ Bucs Fan Says:

    Thanks for all things Bucs! Where’s the link to your “archives”?

  4. Bird Says:

    Spoke with guy the other day who claims to be a follower of bucs. Fan of bucs. He made it seem like last super bowl wasnt really bucs. But brady. Trying to take away from Bucs in a way.

    After years of terrible football we deserved the GOAT coming to tampa bay

    So glad he is here. If we can stock up on some defensive players in draft , there is no reason we dont have another shot at a title

    Heck if we didnt have the injuries we did last year , we could have won another

  5. ocala Says:

    Nobody is like him

  6. '79 Defense Says:

    Man, what a gift from the heavens Brady has been.

    Of course, 20 years in NE, but now forever associated with the Bucs as well– even more so now that his brief two year stint and one SB title is now three years with the Bucs and possibly (very hopefully) another title.

  7. Dooley Says:

    Anthony Nelson lowkey had a pretty solid year in 2021, 5 sacks in spot duty, its part of that pass rusher some of you swear we “don’t have”

  8. Venom Gland Says:

    Dam we should have gotten a live chicken!

  9. #8 Says:

    catalina wine mixer, live chicken…funny.

    may my name come true!! (#3 didn’t seem it’d be as obvious)

  10. sasquatch Says:

    Some might even say Brady is a sociopath.

  11. Joel Westrate Says:

    I’ve followed him since his days at Michigan. Easily, his most impressive game ever was the Orange Bowl against Bama. I remember like yesterday. Incredible. Those NFL idiots should have seen what I did. They were incredibly stupid.

  12. RPK Says:


    Agreed. Low key good year. He is also pushing JTS to be better and is currently listed ahead of him on the depth chart.

    Should be a good training camp battle.

  13. ViSyl Says:

    That’s why this crazy guy has more rings than any franchise. GOAT

  14. #8 Says:

    Joel Westrate–I send Lloyd Carr & Drew Henson a Christmas card every year thanking them for creating the crazy human we know today. Chip grew to insane proportions due to that.

  15. Brian Pruitt Says:

    His 2nd half + OT vs Alabama was incredible. We were behind and Coach Carr finally cut him loose. I couldn’t agree with you more Joel!!! All NFL teams for 5 Rounds were stupid!! Greatest Ever!!

  17. kyle Says:

    what about kyle trask?

  18. kyle Says:

    hahahahahahahah (todd bowles laugh at the dumb greg auman question)

  19. kyle Says:

    go bucs

  20. Bucsfan4ever Says:

    More rings than any franchise.

  21. Bucs&Bolts Says:

    I hope Nelson steps up big this year become a 10 sack guy he has the potential

  22. Mike pizzoli Says:

    The game against bama was insane, Brady outplayed Henson routinely, what’s crazy to me is his arm has only gotten stronger in the past few years

  23. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Tom Brady goes insane trying to motivate everybody else….even the backups because he knows it’s a team game…..he absolutely, positively can’t do it alone.

    Go get it done again, Bucs.

  24. Iamabuc Says:

    Toes on the line, guys….Crazy Tom is back in town….and we love it!

  25. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I am originally from Michigan, so of course I remember Brady at Michigan.
    Lloyd Carr was coach back then, and Brady was not the starter.
    He played behind Griese at QB.
    Yes, that Alabama game was incredible, and it was hard to believe so many NFL Teams passed him by.

    Yes, Brady is a workaholic perfectionist, and that is what it takes to be the GOAT.
    Brady makes his O Line better, because he makes his reads in record time.
    We are so very fortunate to have him, and even if he did truly get rid of Arians, I don’t care. Whatever it takes to make Tom Brady happy, that is what you do!

  26. Doug Says:

    Unfinished business? This season will be a reckoning! Looking forward to the next one TB.

  27. Austin Says:

    Dudes the ultimate motivator

  28. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    I remember Brady said during the play off that everybody should be 110% focus on the game and not the time to watch movies or anything else like. Ahem…. getting interviewed by other teams. 😉

    “may my name come true!! (#3 didn’t seem it’d be as obvious)”

    Wow. All this time I thought #8 was a reference to Mike Glennon. 😉

    #3?? Crabby Grabby?

  30. SKBucsFan Says:

    Crazy like a 7-time; soon to be 8 time Champion!!!

  31. David Says:

    Absolutely love it. It’s astonishing- people like Brady, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Peyton Manning to name a few.
    The elite of the elite. The meticulous attention to detail and what they demand out of themselves and others around them when practicing. It’s so above and beyond what we can imagine because even other all pro players in their sports who work out and train every single day look at what guys like that are doing and say “holy crap, I’m slacking!”

  32. Erik Says:

    Until brady came, this team lost way too much and his attitude shows he wants another championship win. He has broken all records and only one thing he hasn’t done, undefeated season with a super bowl win. He is a football playing Machine and he just wants everyone to have the same mentality as he has. If every player worked as hard and focused like brady there wouldn’t be a team that could defeat us. I never knew how competitive and strong willed he was until he came to the buccaneers, never cared about him when he played for patriots. The only thing I care about is seeing this team with as many superbowl trophies as the patriots and if brady can influence this team to give all they got to make it happen then they deserve to be a part of this team. Go bucs

  33. Perimeter Blocker Says:

    TB12 is something we will never see again. So cool he is a Buccaneer.

  34. Tom Sumner Says:

    Great to be a buc! enjoy the ride! LFG!

  35. HC Grover Says:

    A well oiled machine. Every player perfect on a play. It is The Edge.

  36. MadMax Says:

    Crazy people get crazy results, bad or good….of course we all dont wanna see the bad. We all have to be a little crazy nowadays or on something to make you chill, or else you’re just not happening much.

  37. GOB Says:

    Remember, Brady’s motivation comes from pick 199. He famously told Mr Kraft that drafting him was the best decision he’d ever make. Boy did that turn out to be the truth. What many don’t understand is that Brady should have even more Superbowls. Many years, especially during the ten year drought, the Patriots worked with shoe string budgets. All the while Brady was taking team friendly deals. That extra cash was hardly ever spent on improving the team. This is all detailed in Seth wickersham’s book. Brady is the most driven athlete ever. The only close comparison is Larry Bird. Jordan cared too much about gambling, or I’d put him next. No comp exists for him. For Christ sake, the guy hasn’t had a slice of pizza, or chicken wings in like fifteen years. Not many athletes are willing to make those kind of sacrifices

  38. cmurda Says:

    @GOB. All true man but Jordan over Bird. I adored Bird. That dude had no blood through his body. Just icewater. Don’t get me wrong. However, Jordan was far more elite and I don’t know if anybody was more driven. Yeah he was and probably still is a degenerate gambler and he was abrasive in his technique but he demanded NBA Championships. The gambling doesn’t detract from the excellence and the unwavering desire to win at all costs. Brady and Jordan shared that trait in common. I’m still salty that Pete Rose is wrongfully being neglected entrance into the Hall of Fame by the horrific commissioner of the MLB who I won’t mention by name because he’s garbage. A gambling issue shouldn’t stop anyone from having their accomplishments recognized especially when he never bet on his team to lose. There are many addictions and that’s about the most innocent of all of them. Ask Deshaun Watson.

    Gotta Love Psycho Tom…

    I wonder if he’s going for 10 rings

  40. DamonAZCoffee Says:

    I am actually a Broncos fan and an NFL fan. I ended up watching just about every game Brady has played in because my best friend / ex girlfriend is a Pats fan. I was happy to see him go to the Bucs because I also like Bruce Arians. My team has been crapping the bed the last 6 years but I have still rooted for Brady. It was great to see him win another SB and was actually a little bummed he didnt get into the big game last year. Glad he is still playing and you all make sure and take in every freakin moment of him as your QB. Ill be keeping my eyes on the Bucs, rooting for you all except if your playing against Denver. Cheers!

  41. Anonymous Says:

    … and since according to many of you people he is the most powerful man in football who can tell owners what to do, pick the coach, call the plays and coach the offense, run the team, etc. the fact that he came out of retirement and stayed with the Bucs must mean all the BS about wanting to be in San Fran, preferring the “Patriot way”, not respecting the coaches here, etc. must be false. With the power people says he wields it seems he could have picked whatever team he wanted and forced a trade. Yet he is playing for us.

  42. Eddie Marz Says:

    Brady also has 35 playoff wins. The only three teams with more. NewEngland 37. I think Pittsburg and the 49’s have 36. GOBUCS!

  43. Brian Brozznan Says:

    Tom Brady by far coming to the buccaneers was the best thing that ever happened to this team. His willingness to win determination to motivate other players both on the offense and defense, runs Paramount to any individual in the sport of Football Period . When it comes to quarterbacks in the NFL there’s Tom Brady and then there’s every other quarterback. You can’t even compare him to any other offensive player in the NFL and especially any other quarterback because he is such an elite and at such a different standard he’s that much better! I think with all the offensive weapons that they’ve kept on from last year and resigned this year along with the smart draft picks that they should make there’s no question with Bruce Arians stepping down , and this offense being left up pretty much to Tom. There’s no reason why this team won’t win another Super Bowl this year, barring any injuries God willing!!
