Byron Leftwich Reveals Tom Brady’s First Words To Him

September 2nd, 2022

If you haven’t listened yet to Byron Leftwich on The Pivot podcast, you’re not the Bucs fan you think you are. As Joe explained last week, the segment was that good.

The Bucs’ offensive coordinator was engaging, interesting and dropping a few good nuggets.

One nugget, Joe believes, speaks to how the Bucs will approach this season offensively. It’s Tom Brady’s first words to Leftwich after basic pleasantries.

“First thing Tom said to me was, ‘Hey, I don’t make no decision lightly. I know what I’m coming into. Tell me where you want the ball, you got people runnin’ open everywhere,’ Leftwich said. “That was the conversation. And you know, that’s how we approached it.”

Little has changed — and Brady now has what should be the greatest foursome of receivers in NFL history if they can get on the field at the same time.

Regardless, Brady should often have three beastly receivers terrorizing defenses more often than not. Plus pass-catching running backs he’s familiar with in Leonard Fournette and Giovani Bernard, and enough tight end talent to keep defenses honest.

Yes, the Bucs will throw, throw and throw some more. Why? Because as The Goat himself said, “You got people runnin’ open everywhere.

    Our RBs should catch a lot of passes this year..All of them can catch and Tom will distribute the ball all over the field.

  4. Wild Bill Says:

    Tom hitched up his gonads and blew her a kiss goodbye, I’m playing football cause that’s who I am and that’s what I do! If you need a lap dog go buy one a the pet store! Yo Tom, you da man!

    Tom Brady’s words speak volumes about our past QBs.

    Brady averaged 43 passes per game, but his arm will go dead if he throws 50. Come on man. Malarkey.

  12. Jp09 Says:

  19. PSL Bob Says:

    Love that take. And Thadeus, you’re nuts. Godwin goes nowhere but runnin’ open for the Bucs.

  20. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Jason – LOL! Perfect!

  21. BucsfanFred Says:

    Oh, yeah! I’d forgotten about that.

  22. captivajim Says:

    Gage & Evans both have already come down with hamstring issues . Not so sure about having at least 3 beastly receivers running open as often as needed ???

    Rudolf seemed very slow in pre-season

  23. DoooshLaRue Says:

    So TB’s first sentence to BL was a double negative?

    Sure, I be believing that.

  24. Rod Munch Says:

    DoooshLaRue – The main St Louis newspaper ran a big front page story when the Bucs went there for the NFC Championship in Jan 2000, and it said, “We ain’t afraid of no Bucs’ – probably quoting one of the illiterate players on the Rams. Of course it was also a double negative.

    If the game wasn’t rigged, history is changed, Bucs go to the SB, then Dungy is never fired a couple of years later, and the team isn’t destroyed by Gruden and they probably win another one or two SBs before the team ages out.

  25. TBfan Says:

    Trade godwin.. holy hell man, did somebody accidently throw you into the ceiling fan when you were a kid

  26. 941Boltsfan Says:

    I would have thought it would have been,…”I just met your neighbor…..real funny story…”

  27. JVZ Says:

    He wasn’t thrown into a fan when he was a kid. They tied him to a tree with a rope and used it in the state teatherball championships!

  28. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Ya think maybe BL left out a few words?

  29. Oneilbuc Says:

    I know yall saw the news Joe about Brady’s wife and it’s a shame if Brady gives up his wife and family for a football or any other job for that matter. Yall love to talk about how much yall love Brady and yall even have this romantic type of story about Brady. But yall really don’t care about these players like the media say they do . That’s why none of yall even report it about him having problems with his wife because he came out of retirement. If Brady gives up his family for football or for any job he’s a sucka and I don’t want to hear nothing bad about AB , Jamies, Watson , or any other players that gets in trouble because walking away from your family is just as worst. And this ain’t got nothing to do with no football game this is about life .

  30. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilsuckyall, so you’re saying do NOT live own life live someone else’s? If playing football brings him joy in his life shouldn’t he do it? It’s pretty safe to say this his last season, not sure what sacrifices she makes while he works. I tried the early retirement thing and was miserable after about 3 months. Yes he has other ventures but ALL his success came from football. Many on this site have played team sports and I’m sure when the end came it was a sad day. I can only imagine being the best that ever played a position in a professional sport still being at the top of your game and having to quit? It appears he has over promised and decided to under deliver. Going to be an interesting 2022 season.

  31. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafart. Once you say I do it’s not only about what you want it’s about what we want. Marriage is a sacrifice and you don’t neglect your family for no job regardless of what it is. That’s why the family in America is broken because we have been told it’s all about my happiness and me me me . Marriage is a blessing not a curse. Brady need to put his family first before his job because that’s what a real man will do. We supposed to make sacrifices for our family regardless how we feel. Brady has nothing else to prove he has proven himself to be one of the best quarterbacks to play football. He has superbowls and he’s a hall of famer and he’s wealthy. So there is no need for him to put his family on the back burner for football or any other job . Who you think is going to suffer more?? It will be the kids and it ain’t enough money in the world that’s going to help them feel better about being in a broken home. But this is America where the family is devalue.

  32. Buc1987 Says:

    Oneilbuc …the marriage counselor.. for Brady!

  33. Oneilbuc Says:

    Buc1987. Oneilbuc Value the family more than a football game !!

  34. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilsuckyall, the reason there are so many divorces is other than abuse is unlike in the past where the woman would stay with her kids no matter what the circumstances were, no a days if it ain’t right don’t force it. You can still be a good dad or mom but not compatible with each other. Come out of your cave, Jesus you didn’t even know what Uber is and join the rest of us in the 21st century. I find it hard to believe Brady is a bad father, mainly because how much he seems to value his parents and siblings. So I guess if your misses said Oneilsuckyall get your arse out and shovel shat, you would.

  35. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafart . His wife has been rasing the kids the whole time he was playing. She gave up her career to be a wife and rasid there kids they have more than enough money so ain’t like if they need money. I have never said Brady was a bad father but ain’t no way I will give up my family for no football or any other job. But what I do know is a broken family does effect kids rather you rich or poor.

  36. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Giselle raisers her kids does she or the high priced nanny. Giselle didn’t give up shat, she has her ventures and she got a little long in the tooth for the runway like Tom will eventually for football. I built 3 businesses and sold two, with that comes sacrifices. My family doesn’t want for anything but work for everything. You have to be a freeloader in the state you live because EVERYONE that has to work sacrifices family time. That is unless a two week vacation fills your obligation.

  37. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafart I know to you Brady can beat his wife and you will blame Giselle some kind of way . Brady can rob a bank and you will blame the bank for not giving him the money. Brady can slap you in your face and you will blame yourself for getting slapped. I know Brady is your god lol 🤣🤣🤣 .

  38. Listnfrmafar Says:

    That post is one a man with nothing to say would post. The truth hurts. Not sure why you hate man so much, all he does is help the Bucs win.

  39. Wild Bill Says:

    Onielbuc yuall talking like a puss. Where’s your balls dude. Everybody knows God made woman for our pleasure. Simple as that. Now when Giselle gets over her pout she will come crawling back to Tom. And if not Tom won’t be lonely for long.

  40. Robert A Webb Says:

    Tom Brady ended up visiting Brian leftwich and went to the wrong house so he could join and bring the Tampa Bay Bucs a Super bowl and unfortunately because he’s such dedication to playing football, he might be leaving and going to the wrong house when he finally decides to hang it up, might have just cost a marriage and three or 400 hundred million big ones. Brady a man, with big cohonaers reminds me of my drill Sergeant at the Marine corps in Parris Island, somebody’s going to end up with her.

  41. Robert A Webb Says:

    Too all the Bucs fans who have a problem with Brady playing because Gazelle has to watch the kids while he is practice’s and plays out the season, or to the fans who all think that he should quit, just remember this. Who at 45 only has to work 20 weekends a year and their home every night or at worst at 45 works 6 months out of the year.! let’s give it a break, he spends the whole lot of the orther 6 months pretty much with all his family, Costa Rica, Italy, Montana, California, Brazil, New York, the Bahamas, give me a break, cry me a River, so don’t go in on either side of this, Tom’s home every night even when he plays except for the nights that he has to go to away games Lord Almighty what a life she has to put up with maids butlers shoulders give me a break.
