Fast Start, Fast Exit For Tom Brady

August 27th, 2022

If you spent too long in the toilet, you might have missed it.

The Bucs won the coin toss tonight and elected to receive, and then Tom Brady got them in their hurry-up offense.

Leonard “Lombardi Lenny” Fournette opened the action with a 13-yard run up the gut, and then it was Brady, Brady, Brady. He finished the series against Colts 6-of-8 for 44 yards, including a Tyler Johnson drop plus Mike Evans picking up a pass interference penalty.

The 11-play, 66-yard drive ended with a 30-yard Ryan Succop field goal.

And that was it for Brady. He looked sharp and he got good pass protection. Game over. Thank you, Todd Bowles!!!

No need to get Brady hurt. He went through his pre-game routine and it was on point, as was his performance. Bring on the Cowboys.

Joe saw Brady immediately go to the bench after his series and grab the Surface tablet to watch the film, with Blaine Gabbert alongside him and Byron Leftwich coming over for a chat.

All is good in Joe’s world.

    Except with our Brady, we are the equivalent of The Detroit Lions

  2. Brian Says:

    Todd Bowles is a moron. Why are we playing our starters this late. Hainsey just went down. 3rd string center to start the year. I’m sick and tired of these old school coaches. Don’t play any starters in the preseason it means jack spit.

  3. David Says:

    Takeaways so far…
    All the starters look great.
    Hainsey and Goedeke looked good.
    LVD looks healthy and fast again.
    Vea and Hicks looked dominant.

    Leverette does not look good. He actually looks better at center.
    Most of the backup O lineman do not look good
    Not seeing any borderline receivers step up like they need to

    Licht stubbornness to stick with his in house guys isn’t being talked about enough. He had plenty of time to bring in quality veteran OL depth. By the way, if Wirfs can’t go week 1 we’re in trouble. Wells was getting beat bad this game. Brady just got it out of quickly. He won’t have that much time against Parsons.

    Without Aaron Rodgers the Packers are the equivalent of the Detroit Lions. Without Patrick Mahomes the Chiefs are the equivalent of the Detroit Lions. What’s your point? Brady is a part of this team and he’s not injured so all of this speculative nonsense is just that.

    Because Licht has street cred.

  7. JeffreyLane77 Says:

    Licht has a history of finding Oline gems in the draft. I fully expect some moves from Licht to shore up the line.

  8. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Good point, Joe. My concern is that this is a SB or bust season. You gotta bring in a vet.

  9. steele Says:

    At least some of us have been hammering the stubborn in-house agenda. So far we have been proven correct. Hainsey, who to this point remains unready, “technically promising” but soft, tonight did not shown anything impressive, is out with an ankle injury. Leverette, who has been awful, is awful.

  10. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Joe. At what point does it become coaching malpractice to keep Keith Armstrong as ST coach. Are we gonna pretend anymore like we don’t why this guy hasn’t been fired yet?!3 straight years of crap, and he sucked in ATL

  11. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @steele. Don’t forget about the turnstile that is Goedeke, and Wells also stunk it up. If Brady is gonna throw short passes, he needs to his guys to get good YAC. Brate has proven he’s too slow. He should’ve have a first down on that first series.

  12. JimmyJack Says:

    Brady and this offense looked really good tonight. Straight up win. Right down the field, 3 points one posession.

    Matt Ryan needed 2 posessions to touch the scoreboard!!

  13. AbucAway Says:

    Just got off work and am catching up.
    So, with the help of a long penalty, Brady and the boys were capable of a field goal? What did they do, run it up the gut the whole series? Disheartening man. Who kicked the field goal?

    AMEN! “Street ‘Cred'” is ONLY earned. It is never ‘given’!

  15. LakelandSteve Says:

    Good point Bucsfan13. Our Special teams are atrocious and have been all pre-season. We play in Dallas like we did tonight on Special teams you won’t need to worry about Brady or our defense. It will look like a track meet out there every time we kick off or punt to the Cowboys. I have held my breath every time we kick off or punt because we just flat out suck on teams. We hold the player accountable how about we hold the special teams coach accountable and if they play like that in Dallas fire his azz and get someone who can coach.

  16. Aaron Says:

    And Shady brady only goes down field and then gets 3 points for y’all can tell he is getting old lol be his last season

  17. captivajim Says:

    bowles is NOT a smart coach.. Given our o-line situatuion—WHY play Hainsey so long ???

  18. Bojim Says:

    First play. Run up the middle. Argh

  19. JVZ Says:

    Seems most of you have forgotten how quickly the Buc’s started after getting Brady. Now he is “shady brady” with a burnd out arm? The only reason I read this insanity written by “those in the no” is so I can have a good laugh when my day isn’t perfect. Thanks for the laughs everyone!

  20. JVZ Says:

    One more thing… Has everyone been a Brady fansince his college years? I have! He rarely starts fast and almost “always” comes through. I don’t understand why most of you believe you are smarter that the dude that buult the team for you to snivvel about. You have the best GM in the league, leave it up to him and change your energies towards your team. Have faith in what you have, you might sleep better…..

  21. Anthony Says:

    I’m tired of Joe buc constantly talking injuries before they happen. Pleas stop already you’re the kiss of death

  22. Buddha Says:

    Sad how unappreciative our fans are.

  23. Oneilbuc Says:

    Puting up 3 points is not a good start especially when you go for it on 4th down when you know that’s normally a punt on 4th down when the season starts. But I’ve always believed in going for it on 4th down when you are on the 50 yard line. But as long as it’s Brady it will always be a good drive even if you get 3 points or have to punt according to this fan base on this site and Joe bucfan.

    Be glad whe Brady is gone …for good…

  25. John McClain Says:

    @George, You’re IDIOT!!!

  26. Rich S Says:

    Brady will be Brady and our D is definitely upgraded.
