“I Think We’re In A Better Place Than We Were Five Quarters Ago”

November 14th, 2022

Tom Brady was talking tonight and Joe was guzzling Big Storm beer and Burger Monger fries while taking notes.

The Let’s Go! show was on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio, and Brady was talking Bucs and all kinds of things.

First, Brady was very encouraged by the Bucs’ victory yesterday against the Seahawks. “We played much better football than we played all year,” he said.

And what fantastic timing, Joe will add.

Co-host Jim Gray asked Brady if the Bucs’ issues are resolved? Yes, there’s been plenty of talk on the show in past weeks about Tampa Bay’s plodding offense.

Brady gave a great response that reflected the week-to-week nature of the NFL. “I think we’re in a better place than we were five quarters ago,” Brady said. “…That was more of a template for winning for our team yesterday than it has been all year,” citing excellent defense and “a little bit better” offense.

Regarding the ridiculous trick play the Bucs ran with Leonard Fournette throwing 25 yards to Brady on slick field, Brady laughed and wanted the world to know he tried to stop the interception.

“That Philly special was not very special,” Brady said. “… I tried to go up to at least tackle, you know, and try to keep the ball from [getting intercepted] and I fell on my face. So in a lot of ways, you know, embarrassment and shame at the same time on the same play.”

Joe will have more from Brady later regarding the bye week and mental toughness.

    That play not only should not have been called….It shouldn’t have even been designed……..you simply don’t put Brady in that position.

    The win against the Rams should be a turning point for us.

    And….we have a good punter.

    We have Rashad White….He’s gonna break one.He almost did but chose to do the smart play when he slid down.Lenny is toast.Needs to go on a diet

  3. Lazul Capital Says:

    I agree TB Buc Fan

    The emergence of Camarda last 2 weeks has put the defense in favorable positions

    Hoping he can keep this up!

  4. Wild Bill Says:

    So Brady cleaned up his personal life issues, came to every practice and team meeting and had his best gamen this season. What a surprise, haha. Dude got his sheit back together. Old Tom is hopefully back!!

  5. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    LOL< I had to laugh when Brady, out of instinct, tripped that Seahawk defender who made the Interception 🙂
    Brady should have never been put in that situation, and there was no reason to get cute!
    We were moving the ball steadily.
    WE played very well yesterday against the NFC West division leaders, who are no pushover.
    If we continue to play like this, we will crucify Cleveland!

  6. Beej Says:

    C’mon MAN! HOW frikkin cool would it be to have 45 year old Brady catch a td pass?

  7. NEfan Says:

    Beej@ that was the plan he was on the 12yd line if he caught that and walks in if not for #27.

  8. Pryda…sec 147 Says:

    Take that play and burn it never use it again with Brady period if we lost that game Byron would have been fired

  9. 941bucsfan Says:

    No he wouldn’t of been fired.. regardless of what hapoens.. ZERO chance leftwich is fired… ppl gotta stop wishing lol

  10. Austin Christopher Lewis Says:

    To be fair brady was WIDE open the first time if lenny could if thrown it then lol like he was that stupid open down the sidelines

  11. captivajim Says:

    it didn’t work in Foxborough either !!!!! stupid call……

  12. Bucschamp Says:

    old man brady tripping is funny

  13. Hodad Says:

    It would’ve worked the first time, Tom was wide open, but then what? You want to risk your 45 year ol QB getting lit up by a saftie? Just when I thought Lefty couldn’t call a worse play then up the middle on first down he pulls this out of his butt. It’s to bad, because we were grinding them down at that point, and Lefty gives them the life with that call. If they score there instead of fumbling, we probably lose that game. Just the most reckless, dumbest call I’ve ever scene in that game situation.

  14. Panhandle Buc Says:

    The “Leftwich Special”…hopefully it stays in Germany!We were rolling and that play was a momentum killer that could have cost us! The thing about trick plays is timing and that was not the time or the place…

  15. garro Says:

    Note to Bryon ….when we said more imaginative play calling ….Thats not what we meant!!!
