Tom Brady Seems To Caution Fans That No-Risk-It-No-Biscuit Is History

October 14th, 2022

Tom Brady

The last three years the Bucs have had one of the NFL’s best, high-octane offenses. They just racked up points and yards.

This year? Even with Tom Brady leading the NFC in passing, the Bucs offense seems to huff and puff to break 20 points.

Part of that is the Bucs offense isn’t trying to mirror what they’ve done in the recent past when Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians ran the show.

“What we can be compared to other years, I don’t think that’s what our goal is,” Brady said yesterday. “We’ve got to maximize our potential. There’s a different team, a different group of guys.”

Brady does not speak with forked tongue here. The offense is different because the Bucs have different players, some skill position players are gone and the offensive line, due to injuries and retirement, is different.

Brady also had a very blunt, direct synopsis of how he thought his teammates on the offensive side of the ball are playing through five games.

“I don’t think any of us have played to the level we’re capable of,” Brady said.

You know how driven Brady is. His teammates better throw it into overdrive if their meal ticket at quarterback thinks they’ve not yet hit their stride.

    In other words, my offensive line gives me no confidence in the posket. But at least they suck at run blocking.

  2. Redeemer Says:

    While I figured the offense would look different, I didn’t think they’d have this much trouble scoring. The tight end position is basically gone from the offense without Gronk. They miss his blocking desperately also. They are what they are, and I don’t see any drastic improvements. If the revolving door at reciever continues, so will their struggles.

  3. SufferingSince76 Says:

    So, in other words, no biscuit this year.

  4. Beeej Says:

    We had barely 30 min time of possession last year, if we can improve a few minutes on THAT, will help offset lesser points

  5. AbucAway Says:

    Yeah, what Goat said. Look you’ve got some qb’s that’ll run around with their hair on fire to try and make a play and you’ve got qb’s that are pocket passers. This line cannot hold a pocket. It’s why the quick release. It’s why the horrible runs. It’s why we are worried. They have to play defense because they are getting pushed out and back. You can’t put it all together when you are playing on your heels
    A post just after game where I said it’s on Tom is a post where I was wrong. I got crow feathers in my teeth, but he’s a pocket passer. This isnt a super secret of football. And when that pocket just gets washed away, it’s not going to happen for us. There is no time while on your heels.

  6. Manny Says:

    Maybe thats the problem. No risk it no biscuit gave the bucs their 2nd title ever and first in 19 years. They went 13-4 the very next season with an extremely high number of injuries, especially to the secondary. They were a good defensive drive from going to ot and possibly going to the nfc title in back to back seasons, even with a bunch of backups in. Tom brady had what was most def his best 2 year span of his career. The problems is todd bowles. I really wish bruce arians was still the head coach. Todd bowles lied. I def remember him saying there would be no change to the offensive scheme.

  7. Beeej Says:

    Tom is the #1 passer in the NFL , led the LEAGUE in fantasy points last year (that would include Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray, etc) Being a pocket passer isn’t necessarily a detriment

  8. Beeej Says:

    (NFC, autocorrect)

  9. AbucAway Says:

    If we look at the Super Bowl win and Gronks second touchdown we can see that it took around 4 seconds for that play to materialize. When you have to release at 2.3 seconds, your production will be limited.
    One more second noobs. Come on

  10. Dooley Says:

    Brady is Leading the NFC in passing yards, which isn’t really anything to celebrate when you’ve thrown less TDs than Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, Geno Smith and Aaron Rodgers. So, I think Brady knows he along with his teammates on offense can ALL be a lot better with who they’ve got available in effort to get this machine running at an optimal performance. You can cover ground all day, but if you aren’t putting points on the board in a consistent fashion you’re legitimately just covering ground and that alone does not win football games. Not a Tom critique, but I’m sure his expectations of his teammates mirror his own expectations for his own play. 1 TD every 201 yards of passing ain’t gonna cut it.

  11. beano Says:

    How come, according to all you geniuses, the offensive line is a factor in quarterback performance during the season, but is not a factor in quarterback performance during the preseason? 🤔

  12. Duane Says:

    This looks a lot like the first season Brady was here- out of sync offense and an opportunistic defense. Its better to be playing good football at the end of the season. Just need a bit more production in scoring. I will take the odds on better red zone production going forward.

  13. Redeemer Says:

    Brady can make up for an average line. His release and ability to read coverage is off the charts. He can’t however help them run block.

  14. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    To my untrained eye, Brady is not having the time to hang out in the pocket waiting for his guys to get down the field, like say, the past 2 years.

    No more pocket, means no more time for risk-it-biscuit? Out of necessity?

    Chinese fire drill, soon as the ball is snapped?

    Some people much smarter than me, say the o-line is doing good. I was thinking less than good, at best.

    Signed…. armchair expert

  15. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Brady fined $11 K for kicking Jarrett…………(or attempting to kick Jarrett)….

    $11 K for Brady is like the cost of a hamburger for us……(Krystal)…..

  16. Bucsfan13 Says:

    We are DEAD last in any metric regarding our run game. We need a run game to complement our pass offense. It can’t just be Brady throwing 50x a game. We don’t need to be a run first team. We’re not built like that. This is a wide receiver driven offense, but We need people to at least respect the run game.

    The Chiefs make the game so easy for Mahomes. That’s why they haven’t lost a beat without Tyreek. Mahomes is just killing teams with quick, short passes. His receivers and backs are getting quality YAC. He takes selective deep shots. They’re running the ball well, so teams have to respect the run. Mahomes has living off two yard TDs passes. Great stat padding. I can’t fault him lol

    This offense goes as Brady goes. Having your QB constantly put in third and long situations isn’t sustainable. We’re constantly behind the chains. This is a continuation from last year.

  17. Trask To The Future Says:

    We’ve got to get back to better PLAYCALLING. And that’s not a comment about the running game.

  18. Nicholas Carlson Says:

    The plan: Muddle through with a +.500 record till it clicks and then win a Super Bowl. (You know, just like 2020)

  19. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    What plays to call, when the o-line is getting blown up?

    Is there a book on this?

  20. Bucsfan13 Says:

    The fine was deserved. Hopefully we can move on from this story. It’s been like 7 days and the media are still ranting about it. It’s getting annoying. And the media are going after Bowles. This team is always in the spotlight. It’s the cost of having Tom Brady play for your team.

  21. Redeemer Says:

    Beer Whisperer, it’s called NFL head coaching for dummies

  22. Defense Rules Says:

    Brady … “We’ve got to maximize our potential. There’s a different team, a different group of guys.”

    That’s nothing more than a generalization, and I don’t see how anyone could disagree with THAT statement. What team doesn’t try to maximize its potential? And the fact that we played NINE different rookies on Sunday out of 46 who dressed (like almost 20% of our team) should tell all of us that this really is a different team from 2020 & 2021.

    The good news IMO is that we’ve got a pretty solid base of youngsters going forward, on offense AND defense. I’m convinced that we’ll lose a number of starters next year due to salary CAP considerations, BUT … that doesn’t mean we can’t be competitive within the NFC South. The more field time these youngsters get THIS YEAR the better off we’ll be NEXT YEAR.

  23. SB~LV Says:

    I don’t know about that?
    I have seen biscuit throws in every game

  24. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Yes Tom we can see that!!!!!!!

  25. Miller5252 Says:

    $11k fine for a phantom kick put on Brady. What a joke! I guess if you’re gonna kick, might as well go full Suh in the early days. That’s just stupid!

  26. lambchop Says:

    If we get our WRs all out on the field at the same time, there will be some no riskit no bisquit offense. We just don’t have the personnel in backup roles who can do it. They just tried to no bisquit it twice with Miller last Sunday.

    We should have got one of those called as a DPI.

  27. sasquatch Says:

    That’s boilerplate Brady commentary. Nothing new to glean other than the obvious. They haven’t played their best. Duh. Not sure it warrants an article.

  28. geno711 Says:

    Exactly sasquatch.

    “What we can be compared to other years, I don’t think that’s what our goal is,” Brady said yesterday. “We’ve got to maximize our potential. There’s a different team, a different group of guys.”

    The journalistic juices are flowing in Tampa this week between Joes interpretation of Brady’s comment and other questions this week to coach Bowles.

    Things are simpler than some journalists try to make them.

    1. Bowles wants to win no matter what the color of the other coach.
    2. Brady realizes it is a different offense group the team has to play to this year’s strengths. It does not mean that Tom can’t take a shot down field when the value of the risk is reasonable.

  29. MadMax Says:

    Here’s your risk it….trade our 1st (which will basically be a high 2nd) for the Panthers Brian Burns. or our 2nd and JTS.

    Deal and bet done.

  30. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Miller5252. The fine was warranted. I will say I’ve seen worse when players are in a pile trying to recover a fumble. Josh Allen has attempted to kick people. He threw a ball at a Chiefs player, and more recently he ripped off the helmet of another player. It hasn’t received any media attention because everything Brady does is national news. I can make an argument that Josh Allen whines just as much as Brady for calls. He’s also Feisty after the whistle. I’m a huge Josh Allen and i watch a lot of his games. He begs for calls!

  31. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @geno711 The media is killing Bowles right now. It’s ridiculous. I blame Brady. I love Tom, but i miss the days when we had early games and no primetime games. No one cared about us. Now everything that’s said or done by this team is national news. Bowles should be focusing on the Steelers, instead he’s been attacked by hungry social justice warriors. We are still dealing with the fallout from the RTP from 7 days ago!!

  32. BigMacAttack Says:

    All that matters are Wins. Take them however you can get them, but get them. If guys stop fumbling and turning the ball over more points will be scored. This offense thrives in no huddle hurry up mode. They stopped that in the second half so they could run the clock. It didn’t work and it allowed the Falcons to get back in the game. Forget the clock until the 4’th quarter, later the better, and run with what works. That’s no huddle, go go go. If you’re scoring TD’s every time you get the ball, it matters little what your opponent does. When your zone defense is getting carved up late in the game, go back to press man coverage. We often wait too too long to make adjustments. Timeouts are valuable at the end of a game, but when your defense is getting gashed, use a time out, get their heads back in the game, and stop doing what isn’t working. This is basic coaching 101 in any sport. Don’t make it harder than it is.

  33. Joe Says:

    Bowles should be focusing on the Steelers, instead he’s been attacked by hungry social justice warriors.

    You think Bowles gives two flips about social media while at One Buc?

    FYI you want people to care about the Bucs. People don’t give a flock about garbage teams. #LostDecade

  34. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Joe. I remember the lost decade quite well. Why should we care about what the national media thinks about us? It’s insecurity.

  35. Listnfrmafar Says:

    No risk it No biscuit burns out your defense. The bombs on 3rd and 2 and 4th and 1 last season almost made me want to get on the Medicated Pete wagon. All Brady is saying is Smarter NOT Harder!!

  36. Joe Says:


    If you want the Bucs to play in obscurity and nobody paying attention to them, better hope the Bucs have 10+ losses each year. Not only will they rarely get primetime games, the evil media won’t waste any time with them.

  37. Listnfrmafar Says:


  38. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Come on, Bucsfan13. Nobody wants to go back to those days. They sucked and everyone complained that we were being ignored.

  39. Buc king Says:

    I’m with madman make that trade

  40. David Says:


    You miss when they were irrelevant and had no shot at the playoffs basically? What the hell is that?

  41. richbucsfan Says:

    Best trade=BL for Burns + 1st round draft pick

  42. AbucAway Says:

    Ain’t nothing wrong with going under the radar for the win(s).

  43. geno711 Says:

    What media is killing Todd Bowles?
    I am not seeing it.

  44. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Geno711 Social media blue check marks.

  45. lambchop Says:

    I watched that Brady presser and I didn’t come away from that thinking no riskit no bisquit is history. He just states that the offense is different because of the players or lack of and they haven’t played their best yet. So, once the guys around him show up, the offense will be a lot different (in a positive way).

  46. George Says:

    Licht has let the whole team down by not getting proper offensive lineman
