No Plan To Play Tom Brady In The Preseason Home Opener

August 3rd, 2022

Bucs fans who pay good money to watch preseason football aren’t going to like this.

Todd Bowles was asked about the only Bucs preseason home game this season, against Miami in just 10 days at The Licht House. The head coach said he will use the two joint practices held at One Buc Palace for starting players to get most of their important work for the week.

In the actual game, Bowles said the reserves will be featured more under the bright lights and added pressure. And he said Tom Brady will not play.

Joe believes this could change, especially if weather disrupts those two practices with the Dolphins, scheduled for Aug. 10 and 11.

If not, most Bucs fans might have to wait until Aug. 20 to see Brady against the Tennessee Titans. That’s a road game.

The Bucs’ preseason finale is Aug. 27 at Indianapolis.

    Play trask 3 quarters.

    We already know what gabbert cant do

  2. Tim Says:

    It’s the right move. Brady doesn’t need much play to get down or maintain his timing with his receivers, plus it’ll give more time to the other QB’s to figure out how the backup situation will shake out.

  3. Allbuccedup Says:

    Maybe Brady wants to sit back and evaluate his new team for 2023. Gotta feel sorry for Tua when Flores was there he wanted Watson and now we see the owner wanted Brady. Nobody wants Tua.

  4. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    That’s fine. Don’t get him hurt.

  5. SlyPirate Says:

    I hope they don’t play LVD, Vea, or Evans. Save it for the season.

    Tom Brady was not in the hearing. NFL just say these things like fact. Tom get to defend his name or we supposed to take nfl word for it. Flores case was was supposed to be about Flores given orders 2 tank. This was supposed to be about he was treated because of his race. Nope this turned into Tom Brady has been tampering for years with Miami yet never played for them. Tom Brady’s name takes heat off Deshaun Watson sex case.

    After the Jenson injury….they should just send the Tampa Bay Bandits put there.

  8. Hodad Says:

    Trevor Lawerence won’t play tomorrow for Jax either. This is the way most teams do it more so when there’s joint practices. I’d imagine than we won’t see him for the Titan game either. I have no doubt Tom will be ready for the opener. Besides, if he’s gone next year Trask needs all the game reps he can get.

  9. Jerry Says:

    Yeah. Having him play against the Dolphins right now would be a bit awkward.

  10. Bowles4President Says:

    I just hope they keep sending the wolves after Hainsey to get him ready for the season.

    I agree with yaw about Trask. Have him play a ton. Shoot, let him play with all the two’s

  11. captivajim Says:

    Absolutely–Play Trask for 3 quarters–he’s our future, which may come sooner than most expect..

  12. Tye Says:

    Brady doesn’t need the extra reps, Gabbert is just a place holder and Griffin is no more than a camp arm….
    Play Trask and see what he can do in meaningless games…

  13. Wild Bill Says:

    of whit!

  14. Wild Bill Says:

    Bird said it best! And brevity is the soul of whit.

  15. Jerry Says:

    There are apparently many at One Buc Place that think Gabbert is the future.

    So they will probably play Gabbert for 3 quarters and let Trask and Griffin split the 4th throwing to guys who will be selling insurance in a month.

  16. Goatfarmer Says:

    Play Trask the whole time. That way the fanboys will see what a mediocre middle school QB looks like.
