Vintage Tom Brady

October 9th, 2022

What a kickass dissection of the Falcons it was today by Tom Brady as the Bucs snapped their two-game losing streak at The Licht House.

First, Brady was 22-of-30 for 224 yards — in the first half! But it was more than that, Brady was spreading the ball around and staying crazy calm. Joe almost felt like it was a Patriots game of years past.

His deep ball was sharp. He was hitting tight windows. And the short game was vintage Brady with running backs catching 11 balls halfway through the third quarter as the Bucs put the game out of reach.

Joe watches Brady perform like this and can’t help but imagine Brady watching the film and thinking there’s no way he’s not playing in 2023. Please, football gods. Please!

Yeah, it’s the Falcons, but they’re a physical bunch and a team that was playing good football before today. Brady’s confidence in his offensive line is showing, and Joe thinks that will translate to more variety coming to the offense.

Brady finished 35-for-52 for 351 yards and a touchdown, plus a two-point conversion. That put Brady at a 68.1 percent completion rate for the season.

Joe’s life feels right again.

    LOL. 21 points of total offense is WEAKSAUCE.

  2. ElioT Says:

    This was as disappointing of a win that we’ve seen in a while.

    A win is a win I guess.

  3. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team still doesn’t look good at all. They really downgraded when it comes to the coaching staff. Still waiting for players to execute on a consistent basis.

  4. T REX Says:

    The team is NOT a super bowl contender

    They are a middling team at best

    1st round out come playoff time

  5. Rod Munch Says:

    It sure looked like he hurt his hand in the 2nd quarter. Will be interesting to hear what they say, and if he practices this week. But in that 2nd half, until that last drive, he was throwing a lot of ducks.

  6. ElioT Says:

    Brady throws 52 times in a 21-15 win!!!!

    This team has issues.

  7. PewterStiffArm Says:

    We might have won but this defense sucks!

  8. Rod Munch Says:

    Who cares if you throw 52 times when half of them are for 5 yards or less? Wow are their some real idiots in here that don’t understand how football works in the year 2022, and still think it’s 1970.

  9. TombsEN Says:

    A lot of you all are discounting the Falcons all of their losses have been close and they could’ve beaten the Rams. This is the most annoying fan base ever. I see why some players don’t like you all.

  10. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Brady was slapping a lot of hands after the game. His hand is fine.

  11. HolyBuc Says:

    It was an UGLY UGLY win.

    Massively inconsistent play on both the O and D.

    No excuse for the O to have THREE straight 3-n-outs in the second half.

    They started very slow, had a great middle section of the game, then collapsed much of the second half. Were 0-15 in the 4th quarter.

  12. BucsBro Says:

    Brady was exceptional. This is how he wants to play.

    Offense had it’s stumbles, but was in good gear most of the game. Control the ball, short plays to set up long ones, etc.

    This is how Brady likes to play. He doesn’t like Risk It, Biscuit nearly as much. The coaches have to get that stuff out of the gameplan.

    An example — the moronic deep ball to Scotty on 2nd down on the final drive. No reason to do that play. It’s a wasted down and it stops the clock. There was a similar play earlier in the game. Get that stuff out of the play calling.

    With Otton and White joining the party, things can get a lot better fast.

    Brady likes to throw a lot because it lets him control the game. He gets to put his mind against the defense (and he usually wins). I think Weis said that Brady wants to throw on every down. This is exactly how he wants to play.

    Plenty to improve from this game, but this is the Brady we need and the offense we need, with a few exceptions.

  13. Jp09 Says:

    Nothing like getting bailed out by the refs, football is trash now. If anyone should’ve gotten a penalty it was Brady for acting like a whiny b!tch after he got legally sacked.

  14. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Rod. His shoulder is a problem. I think the injury is more serious than what’s being reported. He also didn’t look right in the Chiefs game

  15. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Coaching can hurt a team far more than they can help one. We have a new drinking game, if you guess BL’s call the other guys drink. We’re all sh@t faced.

  16. DungyDance Says:

    Sorry to be another one of the downers here but I have to agree with other comments. And three 3-and-outs in a row against a 4th quarter Atlanta defense? And 0 pts in 1st qtr? Crap win against a much lesser team.

  17. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Jp09@ how about the ones NOT called???

  18. Bucanero Says:

    Bucs got the win. On to next week. Stack wins, stay healthy. 🙂

  19. Redeemer Says:

    I’m sure Brady isn’t thrilled. A win is a win.

  20. Francisco Guzman Says:

    @Jp09 like the bucs didn’t get screwed by the refs? That was a makeup call.

  21. LakelandSteve Says:

    Sorry to say this but our defense is pathetic. The Falcons ran all over them for the second week I’m a row and our safety’s lead the team in tackles. None of our linebackers had more than 5 tackles. Sure Devin White made a couple of splash plays but where was he and Lavonte when the Falcons were running through the D line. I will tell you where, either getting blocked or not filling the gaps. This is not a championship team with a sorry defense and an offense that is wildly inconsistent. We have the talent but something is wrong.

  22. BucsBro Says:

    Is Dalton better than Jameis?

  23. Show Me the TDs Says:

    @Listxxxxxxxx. Yep!

  24. Tyler904 Says:

    Is this a new joe? Or did one of you up your Prozac??

  25. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This bucs team is poorly coached. 5 games in and they still haven’t looked anything like a contender. Joke.

  26. dmatt Says:

    Com on man it’s time to try one of the rookies at punt return. Darren is garbage. He look to run out of bounds on most of his returns. It’s obvious he’s afraid of contact. Let’s try Deven Thompkins n see if he can get some positive yards because Darden is in the wrong league.

  27. Oneilbuc Says:

    Bad call glad we won but this ain’t no super bowl team so far . And this is why I give goat status to no player in today’s football. Glad we won as a fan but this was bad for football.

  28. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Love Tom, Evans, and a couple others, but that line is going to be the cause of Brady getting injured. Julio, Vea, Shaq amd both LBS and the entire D should go on the IR because their snatches hurt .. no leadership is destroying this team

  29. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Joe, your kidding right? Lol

  30. Merryplankster777 Says:

    The person who wrote this stopped watching mid way through 3rd quarter.

  31. Goatfarmer Says:

    Leftwurst will never be a head coach. Unfortunately that means we are stuck with him. Maybe we could pay a division 3 college team to hire him.

  32. HC Grover Says:

    brady was great until Bowles pulled the plug

  33. unbelievable Says:

    Getting out scored 15-7 in the 2nd half after starting 13-0 is “putting the game out of reach”?

    No, sorry. They barely held on. Against a weak Falcons team.

    Don’t know why this team insists on playing half of every game with their heads up their arse.

  34. Bob in valrico Says:

    We eked out a win but we have to do better killing the clock. Kind of think teams
    key on an overused Fournette by the fourth quarter. We need to mix it up more.
    Byron’s play calling is repetitive and unimaginative when it comes to killing the clock. Move the chains thats all you have to do. the scotty miller deep pass was
    unnecessary and nearly costly. that said defender ran into miller first and pushed him out of play then twisted around to make it look like he was playing the ball.

  35. #8 Says:

    I feel like I did at 8-5 in 2020. The team has lots of work to do. Injuries piling up on D now too.


  36. Craig Says:

    The Bucs defense is lazy. They could be a good squad if they put some effort into it.

    Until then this is not a deep playoff contender.

    The offense is just starting to gel, they will get better, it is questionable if the defense will get better.

  37. Bojim Says:

    Like the win but altogether not a good showing

  38. Bucfan1988 Says:

    Brady’s deep ball today was NOT exceptional….

    Under-threw Miller TWICE on deep routes where he was open..
    Brady can’t get the ball down the field on deep routes????

    And BOTH of those plays there was DPI on Miller’s defender…

    Guess how many times refs called it?? NONE!!
    Freaken SHOCKING 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️!!!

    Garbage officiating !!

  39. Winny Testaverde Says:

    When a win feels like a tie at best.

    When a typing tulip named Listen From Ma’s Car spends hours on a site to root against the home team/good guys. What a hero o’ mine!

    Bucs were very fortunate…going turtle for 3 straight 3 & outs ain’t championship football.

  40. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucsfan13 Says:
    October 9th, 2022 at 4:19 pm
    @Rod. His shoulder is a problem.


    You might be right – but to me it looked like he was having some issues gripping the ball – but I’m just seeing what they’re showing on TV, so it’s hard to tell. Hopefully he’s OK with a little rest.

  41. Coburn Says:

    Don’t rag too hard on the defense. We lost both of our top corners and I believe Edwards went out too? We were already missing Logan Ryan

  42. George Says:

    A win is a win.

    Team looked good on the first half . Second half the play calling was not at the same standard

    Our weak O Line continues to put Brady at risk.

  43. Mike Johnson Says:

    You take a win any way you can get it in this NFL. But had we been in ATL, no way Brady would have gotten that roughing the passer call. And most of us know it. I was impressed with the Falcons QB. He has improved his game. I hope we get much better, because from mine eyes, we are not a Superbowl team this season..yet. Time will tell.

  44. D-Rome Says:

    I would have liked to see the Bucs score at minimum 35 points today. I’ll take the win but this is concerning.

  45. Buddha Says:

    So who are the Super Bowl teams in the NFC? Green Bay? They lost to the Giants? Dallas? We already beat them? Philadelphia? They have yet to play anybody? San Fran? Perhaps but they have no offense? Rams? They may not even make the playoffs. Buffalo and KC look good, but the season has a long way to go. The Buccaneers are trying to get healthy. They are not looking for style points. They could go either direction. Call today against on roughing was a tough one. We lost in New Orleans last year because of two similar calls. That’s football. You can’t assume that Atlanta would have scored. Mariota can’t through worth a damn and I can’t see them coming 80-90 yards in two minutes with no time outs without throwing the ball.

  46. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Sheesh. A win is a win is a win. That was a physical game. Todd and BL went conservative with a lead. BA would’ve tried to step on their necks. Take the win though. Atlanta is a lot better than most of you think.

  47. DrunkinYbor Says:

    I’ll say it again. I can tell by what is said what generation of buc fan they are. We used to party like hell after winning 16 to 10. Spoiled little things these Johnny come lately. I wonder if they even know we actually wore Creamsicles or if they think it’s just a marketing thing.

  48. D-Rome Says:

    BucsBro, I agree with you on that moronic deep throw to Miller. That’s one of those plays where they’re looking to get the PI but still…

  49. AbucAway Says:

    It’s done. It sucks to say but this season is done. Put a fork in it done. There is no getting past the rookies and coache. It’s done unfortunately

  50. captivajim Says:

    a win is a win . but that penalty for roughing passer was a gift…..

  51. Doc Says:

    This Ref group should be suspended and investigate for being scared of Brady.
    What a sad day for the National Brady league.

  52. Kody Says:

    Is everyone forgetting Atlanta didn’t have their star players on the field today?

    If they had, we might’ve gotten smoked.

    We should have beat this weakened Falcons team by 30 points, not 6. Didn’t even cover the spread. I don’t bet games, but know a lot of guys who do and they have lost betting on the Bucs vs the spread in the last 3 straight games.

    Out Bucs have a long way to go before they are a good solid consistent team.

  53. Pryda...Sec147 Says:

    So much garbage fans in these comments Go Bucs! Rest up and let’s go on the road and get this W against the Steelers !!!

  54. Goatfarmer Says:

    Who are you Doc? How about moronning yourself to some inhalation therapy with a tailpipe.

  55. TAMPA BAY DEMON™ Says:

    What a fricking joke.
    I can’t remember being this ticked off after a win, in 40 years of being an NFL fan.

    Byron….. passing every down while up 21-0.
    Are you fricking kidding me?
    Todd…. unwilling to walk down and say something to Byron….
    Bruce would.

    What a joke.
    What should have been a fun day, going into the 4th Q….
    feels like garbage now.
    Feels like a LOSS.

  56. JA Says:

    Brady came through big in crunch time.
    Think Jameis would’ve got that call?
    Brady’s Oscar consideration acting ability, profoundly on display after being legally sacked, was the play of the game.
    Either the refs feel sorry for him because he’ll acquire full septuagenarian status in a mere 25 years, or they wish they had his life. Nobody gets that call but him.
    The refs were our 12th man today …

  57. DBS Says:

    First off it is a win. I will take it. I do not worry about what “may have been” because there is no guarantee Atlanta would have scored. Just as could have been our defense may have stopped them with the time they had left. The Ref’s screwed us on the 1st down also. That was easy to see he picked that up. We got a bad spot twice on that. One thing I do believe. Bowles can’t handle Defense and HC at the same time.

  58. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Idk why this team is so injury prone compared to other teams around the league. Something is going on with this staff. Every year it’s something with the cornerbacks getting banged up. It’s ridiculous already.

  59. Wild Bill Says:

    Wow! Is Joe on the Bucs payroll? Brady spent a lot of time on his back. The run game was just good enough at times but not dominating. Same for the passing game. Otton was macho man! Brady may be crippled if the pass blocking does not improve. Tryoinko stunk again. 5 games in, the Bucs are not looking like a serious contender. New players? Sure, but by 5 games in they are not showing consistent good play. I will hold my nose and cheer them on but unless they step up their only chance of making the playoffs is being in a weak division.

  60. Doc Says:

    If you saw the hit Bridgewater took and no call. The hit took Bridgewater out of the game. Now Mr, Goatfarmer says, you must be blind, the junk the buc’s are putting on the field is sad, Would been a lost today if it was not for the Ref’s.

  61. TAMPA BAY DEMON™ Says:

    Kentucky Buc Says:
    “Todd and BL went conservative with a lead.”


    What are you talking about?
    How bout RUNNING the DAMN ball when you are up 21-0.
    We were passing on every down and had 3 straight 3 & outs.

  62. Stanglassman Says:

    At least the refs were consistently bad on the roughing the Qb calls. Vita barley touch the Qb with his stomach. Now missing the obvious PI on Scotty Miller was was inexcusable. Refs were bad all day. ATL would have been blown out had the refs not kept it close so I don’t want to hear about one bad but consistent call at the end. The PI would have made it 1st and goal. Bucs probably wouldn’t have needed to pass again in the game.

  63. Stanglassman Says:

    The Bucs did trying running the ball. It was a 3 and out. That’s how they let ATL back in the game.

  64. TAMPA BAY DEMON™ Says:

    I apologize, Kentucky Buc.
    Just frustrated.
    A win is a win.
    I GUESS.
    But that should have been a fun day.
    It was not.

  65. D-Rok Says:

    Our team is doing just fine after 5 weeks compared to the rest of the league. Holy crap that 3rd qtr drive, Brady just dissecting that Birds defense like they were school-girls. Impressive.

    Did we have that fire and and finesse and smash-mouth all game long? Of course not – that’s so rare for an entire game.

    The Bucs did exactly what they needed to do to win this game, and I’m happy we have a WIN and a mostly, very competitive game. At times, we were dominant. (See: Fournette, Leonard).

    Good win because it was a win. GO BUCS!!!

  66. TAMPA BAY DEMON™ Says:

    I am sorry but I beg to differ. They were throwing it on almost every down during that part of the game, for some bizarre reason.

    Their 3&out drives were all like 25 secs long.

  67. Redeemer Says:

    Kody is right. If Pitts is out there, they’re probably still playing. 75 pass attempts from Brady!!! Wheeeeeeeeee

  68. D-Rok Says:

    Brady ONLY had 52 pass attempts, Redeemer. Slow your roll, bro. LOL!!!

    BUCS WIN!!! Who won? Them Bucs, they the wons who don wun. ROFL.

    GO BUCS!!!

  69. Buc55 Says:

    If not for that weird roughing the passer call that the blind zebras threw we maybe are talking a different outcome…

  70. Bucfan Says:

    The one thing I can say for certain is that the officiating was terrible today, actually beyond terrible.
    We have some big issues with this team and it starts with Bowles. He is a terrible coach and I wish that BA was still our guy.
    I will take this win no matter how trashy it was as I felt the pain back in the 70’s and 80’s and early to mid 90’s to know that wins are fleeting in the NFL and especially when it concerns our BUCS!!

  71. TAMPA BAY DEMON™ Says:

    Yea Buc55,
    and we are going to have to hear about that ALL week from the national pundits and rightfully so. It was a horrible call. And if it went against US…. we would be furious.

  72. Francisco Guzman Says:

    People still talking about the roughing call. I think it was the way he slinged brady to the ground.

    Anyway the bucs now through 5 games haven’t played a complete game where you say ok they got something here.

  73. Kody Says:



    But before the Bucs collapsed and couldn’t get a first down to save their life during three straight possessions, they did have two awesome drives in the middle of the game.

    And that’s the frustrating part. They are SO INCONSISTENT. Great for 15 minutes, then terrible for the next 15 minutes. It’s so frustrating.

    Are they good or do they suck??? IDK! Because it’s impossible to tell from how they play.

  74. DBS Says:

    Buc55. And maybe not

  75. TAMPA BAY DEMON™ Says:

    Kody Says:

    Well said, Kody. PERFECT.
    Know when you get THAT?? When you are being completely stymied by a defense and you are down 9-3, late in the game.
    NOT…. when you are in dominating command 21-0.
    Just a joke.

  76. HC Grover Says:

    the brady roughing was a correct call. he was lifted both feet off the ground and slammed to the deck.

  77. View from 132 Says:

    Why didn’t the Bucs challenge the missed PI call late in the game? Miller was tackled before the ball arrived. The make up call on the roughing was terrible, but that entire play should’ve never happened. Really bad officiating today.

  78. HC Grover Says:

    view i think they sewed bowles red flag to his pocket

  79. TAMPA BAY DEMON™ Says:

    View from 132 Says:
    “Why didn’t the Bucs challenge the missed PI call late in the game?”

    It was definitely PI.
    But I could be wrong, View from 132….
    I don’t believe you can challenge that anymore.

  80. Rod Munch Says:

    You can’t challenge PI calls. The NFL allowed it in 2019, as a test, and it went poorly, so the changed the rules back to not allowing you to challenge those calls or lack of calls.

  81. unbelievable Says:

    Re: Brady’s shoulder vs arm…

    I have no idea, but it definitely did look like on his deep balls he was letting go a little high in his arc, causing the ball to go higher and a little shorter, hence those throws that were a drop short causing the WR to slow down / come back.

  82. alton d green Says:

    is it mandatory that Bucs fans be bi-polar????????????

  83. unbelievable Says:

    *shoulder vs. finger / hand ^

    Not arm

  84. Stanglassman Says:

    After the Bucs went up 21-0 they got the ball back and ran it 3 consecutive times 3- out. You are correct it took very little time off the clock. The next drive they mixed in some passing. Still a 3 and out with little time off the clock. What the Bucs need to do is stick to what’s working. Those long drives will kill more time even if the majority are passes. Don’t go into a turtle offense with 20 minutes to play. Good teams will beat you every time.

  85. Kentucky Buc Says:

    TB Demon. I was disappointed with the second half also. Thought they were going to cruise . I just keep in mind all the new players being incorporated in the offense. 8 or 9 of them. Goedeke,Mason, Hainsey,Gage,Otten,Ko,White,Rudolph,
    and JJ. It will take the whole season to get that continuity. Showed signs of it the last two weeks.

  86. Oneilbuc Says:

    HC . That was a bad call regardless how much you love Brady . Next year we will not get calls like that . The only reason why they called it was because it was Brady. Facts!!!

  87. Jerry Says:

    You can complain about the roughing call. But they missed the PI on Miller. So it’s a wash.

  88. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Unbelievably how some so-called Bucs fan hate their QB. Just pathetic. Do any of you remember our lost decade? This is why our fan base is known as a laughingstock. He’s playing better than a lot of QBs in this league now. For all you whiny Brady haters, let’s just bring back Josh Freeman. Bunch of losers

  89. King C Says:

    Bucs benefitted from a very shady roughing the passer call that usually does not get called. Loudmouth fans on this forum better remember that

  90. adam from ny Says:

    turned out to be a rather uncomfortable win…

    after a game last week you want to throw into the garbage can vs the chiefs…

    i guess a blowout of the steelers in pittsburgh next funday might solve the issue

  91. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    Did we win today? Just checkin…

  92. steele Says:

    This was, as many of us agree, an ugly win, ugly on both O and D against a lesser team that a SB contender would destroy. But a reset/confidence builder after the total disasters of the last two weeks. That’s about it. A lot of work to do, and unfortunately new injuries too.

    Having Godwin back was a big deal.

    You collect these “a win is a win” games, try to stay healthy and in position until winter, and peak at the end.

  93. Cassius55 Says:

    HC Grover – I think he also stepped on Brady in his haste to get up and celebrate – but more likely it was a makeup call for the tackle on Brady earlier below the knees. Also how does everyone bitching here who saw that play not see the blatant holding on Atlanta’s 2nd TD – it was on camera with the falcon hanging onto the buc by the collar on his jersey. If that one is called maybe this later call means squat. I guess people only bitch when the penalty is called if it’s marginal but are fine with non calls on blatant bs infractions. My guess is just more Brady haters who have had their hopes & dreams ruined by the guy for soooo many years. Based on most opinions here sounds like it was supposed to be 17-0 or bust or maybe it’s just a covid hangover that’s prompting all the griping.

  94. D-Rok Says:

    No, we didn’t win today, ’76. Geez these fans and their pessimism. WE WON!


    Kentucky Buc,,

    Very very well said sir. Well-expressed and spot on. There are alot of things to be encouraged about with ALL of the youngsters.


    D-rok and ’76…

    You are BOTH right.
    Thank you for the levity.
    Have not forgotten the bad days and thankful for the win.
    Thank you for the reminder.

  97. JimmyJack Says:

    Not impressed with this offense. I would of thought after losing 2 straight they wouldnt fool around and show some killer instinct.

    Its no biggy. We got the Win. Get better every week and peak when it matters most. And its gotta start up front.

  98. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Prozac Joe wearing his rose colored glasses today.
    Glad we won but we have serious issues.

  99. Bojim Says:

    I’m not comfortable.

  100. Goatfarmer Says:

    A win is great. For 45 minutes it was awesome drinking weather.

    Then Bymoron and Todd’s Bowels showed up, and showed their reasons for being where they are. Bymoron Will never be a HC (sadly that means we have to fire him) and Todd’s last rodeo is now.

  101. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilsuckyall, your boy Jamais gets pulled down by his jersey and called roughing so I don’t want to hear anything from you, you were all over White for that. How about the no call in the Rams playoff game when Miller came in helmet first and almost knocked his teeth out. So don’t give me this only Brady call. Mahomes/Roger’s sniffs a defensive players fart and roughing is called. Doc, oralbuc, Oneilsuckyall would rather Bucsose than have Brady as their QB, so sad.

  102. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafart. I know wants Brady leaves you will be gone as well. That was a bad call and you know it . I’ve never said the hit on Jamies was a dirty hit and miss me with the Jameis stuff. That’s why I don’t give none of these players in today’s football or basketball goat status. I will call them hall of famers but not goats. You can’t water down the game and give them the same credit as the players of the pass . Brady played ok today to me but at the same time Brady needs a all star team on offense to look a average quarterback now days and it’s been that way since he got here. We saw the same team that Jameis had his last 6 games he was here against the Packers and how did Brady looked?? So all that Brady took the same team was a lie from the media and I told y’all that. So stop crying 😭 about sniging OBJ or Gronk remember we have your goat.

  103. BelleGladeBuc Says:

    Which roughing the passer call was worse?

    Vea bumping Mariotta who did his best Vlade Divac flopping technique, or Grady’s normal tackle of TB12?

    Both were horrible calls that extended drives, and they cancel each other out.

    If you complain about one, and not the other, then you don’t know football.

  104. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilsuckyall describe average? 385 yds 3 td’s and no ints. Passing leader last week. Where is this super star team you speak of? Were they at RJ today?

  105. Oneilbuc Says:

    You can call it a win if you want to but not a honest win you can say your truly say we won if you buc fans are proud of that that’s what is really pathetic.i sure don’t know the outcome of the game would have turned out but at least it would have been a win and not a gift from the ref

    We looked better than last time. Still not very convincing win. It’s Atlanta without their best players. Run defense is still a problem for a few games now

    Glad that we broke that 2 game loosing streak! We still have a lot of work to do but we’re looking better. Tom Brady is playing well considering his personal life right Now! Maybe he can finally be himself and fully commit to the game without someone constantly nagging at him and telling him to stop his passion. He Loves his family but he Loves the game too! The Bucs will improve…..Tom Brady wants one more Ring!!!

  109. Buccos Says:

    I hate to break it to you losers but no team is a Super Bowl team in week5. It’s like Brady always says that their is a lot of room for improvement. And that we need to continue to get better. And most importantly to stay healthy or get healthy when it counts. There is a lot of football to be played between now and the Super Bowl. We just need to keep winning. I don’t care how many points we score. If we win 2-0 it’s still a win

    The falcons come back I think had a little to do with the fact they lost 3 of their secondary during the game … Davis, Edwards and bunting all went out the game today and they’re already missing Logan and Neal is not anywhere close to as good as Logan Ryan… Hope the secondary isn’t too banged up

    I love Brady and still think of him as the GOAT of quarterbacks. With that said, our offense is playing defense, for him and him alone. That is not how the game works, my friends. It is showing in a really ugly way. Tom doesn’t have to suck, but he is dragging the offense down. It isn’t an offense scheme anymore… It’s defensive.

  112. Anonymous Says:

    @Abucaway. What are you on about? How is he dragging down the offense?

  113. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I hate to say it Anonymous but I’m with you. Dragging them down, he’s making the plays to keep them in it. He’s given up money, he plays injured and possibly cost him his marriage, that sounds like sacrifice to me. Another hater amongst the fan base. Oneilsuckyall, top three passing leaders last two weeks almost brought Bucs back in GB game, your expectations are pretty high? FYI 1st down on the 1 yd line it’s okay for Lenny to run it in. This O is NOT going to score 31 a week, they don’t have the oline, running game, TE or 3rd WR to make up for AB & Gronk. If Mahomes loses Kelce like to see how he does.

    Great Game from brady. Even better stats when you take away all the throw aways he was forced to make. “His deep ball was sharp”… No way… Mike made a Miraculous catch on one deep ball …9 out of ten NFL receivers would not make that catch. He missed Miller twice. Not faulting TB just stating fact.

    “Brady’s confidence in his offensive line is showing”. Come on Joe … Passes to running backs show the opposite. He cant wait for longer developing pass plays so they are calling less of them. Thus the quick hit crossing patterns to Miller, Godwin and Gage.
