Safe And Mentally Sound Tom Brady

October 8th, 2022

Not only is Tom Brady throwing accurately this season to a wide variety of receivers, many of which are new to the team, Brady leads the league in a category that tests his mind.

Joe has written about the “Time To Throw” stat processed by the technology of official NFL NextGen stats. The stat tracks the average time a quarterback takes from the snap of the ball to its release.

In 2022, Brady leads the NFL with an average of 2.39 seconds “Time To Throw.” Brady led the NFC last season at 2.5 seconds.

Joe believes it’s great evidence that Brady’s command of the Tampa Bay offense is improving. He’s processing like a beast while completing 68.4 percent of his throws.

Pass protection for Brady was strong Sunday against the Chiefs when he dropped back to pass 53 times and was sacked once by a free blitzer he didn’t see. Donovan Smith was back in the lineup at left tackle and Brady wasn’t running for his life or getting smacked around much.

Joe is really fired up for a huge Brady passing day tomorrow.

    Yeah I think our best ball has yet to come personally, but hoping Brady doesn’t get dragged down by this divorce

  2. Capt.Tim Says:

    Me too!

    People who are pushing the narrative that Brady is losing a step this year and that the first 3 games are indicative of what’s to come for the rest of the season are going to be eating a lot of crow come playoff time. Brady looks as sharp as ever, his arm is still live, his toys are all back in action, and the line is MORE than just holding up in pass protection. Imagine when Jensen returns later on towards the end of the regular season. We should all be excited for the show.

    As I said when the JoeBucsFan hate club started bashing the Bucs, Bucs are going to the superbowl!!! I hope it is against KC! I want Brady and the boys to wipe that smile off Mahomes!!!

    so many folks want to bash luke Goedeke on his performance yet he is maintaining well enough, meanwhile learning and improving. watched the TNF game with colts vs denver . The Colts had new left tackle bernard Raiman on no less than 4 penalties and it was awful throughout. Damn our guy is performing admirably in my opinion.

  6. Capt.Tim Says:

    Just hope Tom can hold up, if he does get divorced.
    I hope they work things out.
    Tough when The ex starts bringing the “New Guy” around the kids.

    Im hoping the best for them, and not just because of football.
    As a multiple time survivor of divorce court- I can assure you
    – It Sucks

  7. Marine Buc Says:

    Amazing what you can accomplish once you get rid of a nagging diva…


    LFG – Bucs!

  8. Oneilbuc Says:

    I hope they work out their marriage as well not only for him but for the kids. Some people think that just because they’re rich that a divorce won’t hurt the kids. But divorces hurts rich kids just like it hurts poor kids !!!

    I heard she was in NY visiting a spiritual healer that’s she’s been seeing for years. Sounds to me like she’s a bit of a nut job but I guess he is to.

  10. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Nobody’s business but theirs. Same shot most go through. Few people stay married for a variety of reasons. Now football. Bucs offense is trying to bond and incorporate eight new players. It’s a work in progress. Brady’s done the same for years. BB always used the early part of the season to build on. Brady does the same.

  11. Infomeplease Says:

    With all the injuries and lineup changes, this team could well be 1 and 3!! This team was close to being 3 and 1!! The next 3 games can be a foundation to build off of!! LFG!!!

  12. Crickett Baker Says:

    I was afraid he might miss the voodoo-like ceremony that she always did before games. I read it somewhere. I don’t know whether Tom believed in it or not but he probably thought if Gissel figured it would work he appreciated her interest. They are both strange people so trying to figure their relationship out is a futile gesture on our part, imo.

  13. Beeej Says:

    I’ve always found work to be a pleasant diversion from whatever is going on in my personal life, I expect most people do

  14. Redeemer Says:

    It’s almost impossible to confuse Brady. He’s seen every possible coverage. Hence, the quick release time. He knows where he’s going with the ball pre snap, based on the look. The old adage is, if you can get home with 4, and cover, you can contain him. I’ve always hated that line of thinking, because it’s true for all QBs. He’ll have the ball in his hands, either tied or ahead, with a chance to go to the NFC title game.

  15. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    I think Brady is throwing sharper this year, than last year.
    Last year, had some really bad misses.
    Whether on Brady, or receiver confusion, I don’t know.

  16. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    I should add: Brady knows, But wouldn’t tell us, lol

  17. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard is swooning from the drama, much like Scarlett O’Hara.
    Howard hopes Goatfarmer will catch him if he faints.

    Oh! the draaamaa….

  18. BKBuc Says:

    Just win baby!

  19. garro Says:

    Interested to know how many times Tom has HAD to throw before he would have liked.
    I disagree with Joes statement that “Pass protection for Brady was strong Sunday”.
    Just because he was only sacked once on a missed corner blitz does’nt equate “strong”.
    The fact is that Brady and company have had to alter the offense in such ways as using the shotgun and a dropback, and also shortening routes. Brady has done a masterful job despite his pass protection.

  20. JVZ Says:

    Yo! Listnfrmafar, when did visiting a “spiritual healer” become a reason to be called a “nut job?”

    Maybe a little lesson here for a true nut job;. The number one cause of death in your country is “medical malpractice”! Google it!

    So those who take the time and have the patience to use alternative health practices have a much larger percentage of recovery than those depending on
    “ultra-educated” e*o trips called doctors in allopathic “practices” that are trained in general to know which chemucal pill beats the odds. Why do you think all doctors call their offices “my practice”?

    It’s because they play the odds. “This pill puts bandaids on 67% of those with the same symptoms, which keeps them coming back for another perscription, as well as needing to pay an insane cost to walk through their doors!

    Spiritual Healing has a much higher level of actually creating good health than your beloved-allipathic e*o-maniacs can ever dream about.

    I have a wonderful friend that was told she had 4 different cancers and that they could extend her life but could not save it. They wanted to begin chemo and radiation on her immediately. She turned it down and went to a “spiritual healer” in Peru.

    In just under a year she was given a clean bill of health and is back to operating her veterinary office.

    Grow up dude & especially wake-up! Some of you know-it-all chairborn-QB’s & HC’s that bring me constant entertainment here should take a vacation and learn to meditate as well as drop your eg*’s and become more of what you so eliquently mock. You also show some intense levels of ign …………. well, you should get the idea.

    Leave Me. & Mrs. Brady alone and take a good look at yourself before calling someone else what you clearly show to be yourself…..
