“The Pace Was Unreal”

June 7th, 2022

Tom Brady is not messing around.

Yes, Brady has been busy shooting a film with ancient actresses, pitching Brady shirts and underwear and preparing to a play a charity golf match in which participants  agreed to pick up short putts so they wouldn’t embarrass themselves. Plus Brady, of course, allegedly is all-in on being a dad with kids in multiple states, and he’s a wellness entrepreneur, and a pitchman for other companies while he squeezes in negotiating a $300 million+ contract with a TV network.

And don’t forget, Brady trains year-round so he can get his 45-year-old body ready for a 20-game football season.

Superman was in the house today at One Buc Palace leading the team in manadatory minicamp. It was Brady’s first known appearance on the field with teammates since he showed up for a conditioning day just after the NFL Draft.

Per center Ryan Jensen, Brady hit the ground flying and demanding excellence.

“The pace was unreal. It was a fast pace today,” Jensen said, emphazing the speed and ramped up competitiveness of practice.

Jensen was careful not to throw other quarterbacks under the bus, noting specifically that Blaine Gabbert runs a good practice, too. But Jensen did not hide his appreciation for what happened this morning on the field. “Tom, he’s Tom,” Jensen said.

    Expect anything less?

    I expect Suh.

  3. Bucsfan13 Says:

    And to think Joe (Steve) suggested Brady wouldn’t be all in. And some of the things Brady has going on in the off-season is handled by his team. You really think Brady is producing TikTok videos at home? He’s also allowed to do things in the off-season like most players. The whole kids in multiple states was low blow. You don’t think he finds time to spend with his kids? I have kids around his age. I promise you kids these days don’t want to spend every waking moment with their parents. This was just a nasty post by Joe, period.

    Anyway we can get you to change your name to #2
    You know 💩 💩

  5. David Says:


    #8. Get over it. He’s done. Didn’t do anything last year and got worse and worse against the run. They just spent his money on Akiem Hicks

  6. #8 Says:

    #2 was 2004.

    #8 is this season.

    I love the Hicks signing. I always hope for more Arbys.


  7. Mike Says:

    Brady is the tone setter for the team and wants to win in the worst way. Let’s hope every player on the team buys in and does their job.

  8. Stone crab sam Says:

    #8 I’m all in on signing suh too. Generational talent don’t grow on trees.

  9. zzbucs Says:

    Everybody loves Suh, but doesn´t make sense after Hicks signing, ……So I guess you or we must move on right?

  10. seemorebucs Says:

    Look at Suh’s PFF grade for last year. You don’t bring someone back who performs that inconsistently on a play-by-play basis.

  11. Bucsfan4ever Says:

    Hicks only counts a mill or two against this year’s cap Thanx to creative math and accountants looking for jobs with the feds.
    Maybe we could do the same with Suh, but do we really want him back?
    Our goal is to get quicker this year.

  12. ErikTheViking Says:

    Joe is jealous of Brady. And he wants Jamoist back. Hahahahaha!

  13. Defense Rules Says:

    David … ‘He’s done (Suh). Didn’t do anything last year and got worse and worse against the run.

    I’d take your analysis at face value … but it’s wrong. Bucs’ roster listed Suh as a DT last year, along with Vea, RNR & McLendon. Also listed JPP, Gholston, O’Connor & Potoa’e as DEs at various points in the season, so they’d be considered DLinemen by most. Just looking at the DLinemen then …

    o Most games played in (2021) … Suh (17) tied with Gholston
    o Most defensive snaps (2021) … Suh (717)
    o Most sacks (2021) … Suh (6)
    o Most QB Hits (2021) … Suh (13)
    o Most TFLs (2021) … Suh (7) tied with Gholston

    So if that’s your version of ‘Suh didn’t do anything last year’ I’d love to see your rendition of which DLineman actually did do something. And BTW, you saying that he ‘just got worse and worse against the run’ doesn’t make it so. But if you say it often enough & with enough conviction, some will start believing it. Then you could call yourself a politician and run for office.

  14. Bucs Win Says:

    Any hand ringing over Brady’s commitment level is silly.

  15. GOB Says:

    49.4 PFF grade for Suh, with 700+ snaps. He basically stole money last year.

  16. JeffreyLane77 Says:

    I may be wrong but I feel Brady was frustrated by the laid back attitudes of some players during practices last year. No sense of urgency. Some players acted like they had the superbowl already won. I’m sure Todd Bowles and Brady spoke about last year. What they could improve on. The intensity of practice was probably discussed. Brady is going to set a tone and Bowles will back him up.

  17. GOB Says:

    Jeffrey, agreed. Being the hunted is different.

  18. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Jeffrey He witnessed the complacency after his first SB win. It was also strange when he mentioned on the podcast when the playoffs began last year that now is not the time to go to the theater. Brady is so focus and goal-oriented. I doubt he even had time for hellos and handshakes. I love the hyper focus

  19. sasquatch Says:

    Don’t understand the crying for Suh. Hicks is probably a better player at this point. And we need Hall to get his snaps. Suh wasn’t overly effective last year.

  20. Two Team Joe Says:

    I’m new to this,
    Patriot fan all my life.
    Moved to Tampa area in early 80s
    Tampa Buccaneers we’re the pitammy of football.
    I could have had a nfc team and a afc team.
    Unfortunately the BUCS suck in the eighties..
    Fast forward I did not jump on the band wagon an Brady
    I am proud to be a Buc fan now with Brady at the helm.
    I still am a Patriot fan, for life! When Brady retires the sad outcome the BUCS are Done for another decade or two.
    Go BUCS/Brady

  21. Beej Says:

    Even WITH Hicks, we’re still short a DT or 2

  22. Oneilbuc Says:

    Two team . You can’t be a real bucs fan but you can join the suckaneers fan club because they believe just like you !!

  23. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilbucyall, your one of the biggest Brady haters on this site, how does that make you a.true Bucs fan if you trash their HOF QB? You probably had a back yard pig roast when he retired.

    DefRules, bravo, I’ve been saying that all along, Suh was the best Dlineman Bucs had last season.

  24. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar. And when he go to the hall of fame he’s going in as a Patriot not a buc!!

  25. D-Rok Says:

    Call me crazy (all the young whipper-snappers these days say cray-cray) but if Suh could also come back on a modest salary, O my word, what a D-Line we’d have.

    I’d love to have Suh back, but it’s looking like that pirate ship might have sailed. In these months of no football, we all bring out our dream-lists and hypotheticals.

    I’d also love to have Gronky back and AB to not be cray-cray. Gronk might come back.
