After Bye Week Off, Tom Brady Leads NFC In Passing

November 21st, 2022

Joe thinks it’s a safe bet that Tom Brady won’t retire next year because he can no longer play at a high level.

Even after just completing a bye-week break, Brady ranks fourth in the NFL in passing yards behind Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen and Joe Burrow. And that means he leads the NFC.

Brady leads the NFL in pass attempts with 427 and has 2,805 yards and a 66 percent completion rate to show for it.

Throw in that Brady no longer has a wife telling him not to play football, his QB coach says he’s improving and Brady has demanded tougher practices and continues his rigorous Friday throwing routine, Joe finds it harder and harder to believe Brady will quit the game he loves in a matter of weeks.

If Brady finishes the season healthy and the players around him don’t let him down, Joe thinks it’s going to be difficult for Brady to wave goodbye to the Bucs.

And Joe’s not the only one in that camp.

    2,805 pass attempts in 10 games? lmao. His arm is going to fall off.

  2. Casual Observer Says:

    The Brady legend just keeps on keep’n on.

  3. Beej Says:

    Now that Yoko is out of the way, no reason for him to quit

  4. ChiBuc Says:

    I imagine in a hundred years or so his mythology will surpass Zeus. I’m sure a few of you already have shrines/alters in your homes to honor his football prowess. The legend continues…

    “Throw in that Brady no longer has a wife telling him not to play football”….Make than an unfaithful wife! Big Difference! Good Luck Tom both on and off the field!

  6. Dooley Says:

    Gotta get those TD numbers up in order for the comparisons to the other QBs in the article to hold any weight, but I guess hooray for covering a lot of ground.

    Anybody see AB’s snap chat story?

    So glad Brady dumped the dud. All the snowflakes saying Tom should adhere to the G-hags demands and quit football for a henpecked routine so she could pursue a menopausal modeling career, look pretty silly now.

    Keep Nick starting at LG, Tom keep calling the plays and using play action, keep running the ball with the double teams to spring the RB to the second level, healthy-ish Julio and Gage, an ascending Otten, Logan Ryan returning to call the defense and a non-injured Hicks, Jensen returns (?!), that’s what I want for Christmas.

    Then Tom will be back. For another year or two.

    Dooley, the wr’s the other qb’s have are playing to a higher level than the Bucs. Brady maybe old but not tired. Bucs wr’s look old and tired.

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    NEfan…dude that’s strange considering none of them are actually THAT old and Julio didn’t look tired in Munich.

    I heard that JoePatsFan wants you back…go get em kid.

    Thanks again for chiming in on OUR team.

    I would not be surprised at all if he plays here next year. I think much depends on how they finish. Then there’s that pesky dead cap hit. Here’s how I understand it. The only way to avoid the 35 million dollar hit, is if Brady signs another one year deal. It would need to be totally comprised of base salary, due to the past deals. If he did sign that one year deal, it would spread the dead hit between the 23/24 seasons. So about 10.7 in 23 and 24.3 in 24. If he retires, he could still help Tampa out by signing the deal, and the bucs cutting him post June 1. If he leaves Tampa for somewhere else (unlikely IMO) the bucs are screwed. The entire 35 mill is accelerated to the 23 cap.

  12. BucsBro Says:

    As Beej said, with Yoko out of the picture things should get a lot easier for Brady to say “yes” in deciding to return next year.

    Just hope he’s ok with his kids and their living situation.

    Brady wants to play. I think that’s clear. Yoko is gone and off with some new boy toy.

    As long as Tom feels the kids are ok, my guess is he comes back. And comes back to Tampa.

  13. NEfan Says:

    Buc1987, never said they were old, said they look and are playing like they’re old. One game is not a good sample size.

  14. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    If he plays, he stays……

  15. Goatfarmer Says:

    TBBF – agree 100%. Tom’s not going to the Dolphins, they’re loving Tua and for good reason. It won’t be SF, as they still have JimmyGQ and Trey. And if they didn’t want Tom before they sure wouldn’t want him 3 years later. Silly to learn a new system again at Tom’s age.

    LFG. Two more years of Brady!

  16. Bucsfanman Says:

    It’s hard to believe with as anemic as our offense has looked through most of the season!

    However, we all know (at least those that aren’t JW fanboys!) the only relevant stat is Ws. If I were a betting man, I’d bet on a playoff run for Mr. Tom Brady. LFG!

  17. PSL Bob Says:

    Joe, as Dewey Selmon points out, you posted 2,805 passing attempts, which is the same as his yardage.

    Wow… This shows what a real POS this guy really is. Especially knowing some of what Tom did for this dude. Anyway He’s just continuing to dig his hole deeper and deeper. What a dirtbag!

    At some point in the future, AB will write an apologetic letter to Brady, probably from Chattahootchie, and ask Tom to bump his canteen account.
