Tom Brady Says He Watches The Patriots “Every Week”

November 7th, 2022

Tom Brady was talking tonight on his Let’s Go! show on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio dropping all kinds of non-illuminating answers when it comes to the Bucs.

Brady clearly sounded relieved by Tampa Bay’s win yesterday and mentioned how the team keeps working harder and isn’t getting results to match the effort. An extended losing stretch is foreign territory for Brady and he’s dealing with the frustration along with teammates as they grind together, Brady said.

He expressed all kinds of love for the Bucs defense and noted that rookie punter Jake Camarda deserved the game ball he got from head coach Todd Bowles after yesterday’s win against the Rams.

Brady was asked about passing the 100,000 passing yards milestone and about how Bill Belicheat is closing in (two years away?) on Don Shula’s career NFL wins mark as a head coach.

Joe was not surprised to hear Brady express his admiration of Belicheat; he’s done it on past shows. But Joe was intrigued to hear Brady say he watches the Patriots every week.

“I just watch that team every week and [am] impressed by how they prepare and the accountability that that organization has had. And it starts at the top,” he said.

Joe wonders if Todd Bowles has approached Brady and picked his brain about the Patriots operation and asked what Brady thinks about how the Bucs could improve their weekly preparation.

Or perhaps Bowles already heard all about that two years ago.

    Hmm… There’s a lot to unpack from that sound bite, Joe.
    Like $10K in therapy kind of unpacking.

  2. LakelandSteve Says:

    You could be right or perhaps Brady was sending a message to the Glazers or just reminiscing about what is was like to play on a good, disciplined football team with coaches who knew how to teach fundamentals and hold players and coaches accountable. How refreshing would that be in Buc land right now.

  3. Darin Says:

    I’m doubting bowles has even approached arians about how he got players to show up. The same players

  4. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Bowles is doing it his way. This is the result.

  5. ATLBuc Says:

    That message was clearly meant for Bowles!

  6. Boodidley Says:

    Agree ATL
    Thinly veiled suggestion to get your heads out of your azzes to bow the BL and TB

  7. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    LOL, Brady watches the Patriots every week to be absolutely sure he doesn’t miss any Weddings!
    As far as accountability goes, it is sorely missing from this team.
    Warren Sapp really hit the nail on the head, and spotted it right away.

    has Bowles approached Brady for input? I certainly hope that is a rhetorical question. If not then it’s the stupidest question ever. Let this Country boy answer that. ” NO FREAK’N WAY NO FREAK’N HOW. It’s not in his DNA. I have to imaging that Tom has thought many times that “Bill wasn’t really such a smartass after all. I’d rather have a smart-ass for a coach than a dumb-ass.

    “impressed by how they prepare and the accountability that that organization has had. And it starts at the top,”

    * cough * cough *

    Time to step it up Mr. Bowles!

  10. alton d green Says:

    I think you could put all of Lefty’s plays on a sticky note

  11. Redeemer Says:

    This is brilliant, after a win no less. Brady is directly taking aim at the coaches Him and Bill made up a while ago. No way Brady says this two years ago. Maybe it’s Bradys not so subtle way of thanking Bill. You don’t win six rings without help. I still marvel at how long they held it together. Regardless of Joe’s belicheat schtick, deep down he marvels too. You can’t be a football fan and not respect what they accomplished. A little rule bending never hurt anyone either.

  12. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Sounds like a swipe to the Glazers and Bowles. We all know in Belichick’s Patriot, you must have discipline and punctuality. Even if you got the game ball last jight but you came in late the following morning, Belicheck has the tendency to cut you right away.

  13. Redeemer Says:

    Jack, just ask Jonas Grey. Sports illustrated cover, late to meeting, never heard from again. You can do those things when you have TB12 acting as capo regime. Bill did make one exception, LT

  14. Oneilbuc Says:

    Well then let him go back to the Patriots if that’s what he wants forget Brady than let him walk . Bowles doing his job this defense is holding teams to under 20 points the offense can’t score and Brady is one of the problems . He should have about 8 or 9 picks right now . I can’t wait until Brady is gone alone with the rest of you Patriots fans.

  15. Oneilbuc Says:

    That’s why I say of yall ain’t real bucs fans when Brady leaves y’all go with him .

  16. BigMacAttack Says:

    If the Bucs would have lost another game to the Rams yesterday I was definitely seeking therapy today. I only ate a whole box of tums during the 4’th quarter. Best end of game belch ever.

    I count myself a Brady fan (ever since that Falcon Super Bowl comeback) That being said, I can still remember where I was when I heard about our very first win in ’77….I was working as Christmas help in the K-mart at Waters and Florida, they announced it over the PA

  18. Bojim Says:

    I would too if I spent so much time with them

  19. Adrnagy Says:

    This is not meant at bowles ! You guys drink too much toilet water. Over the last acouple year one of the biggest changes in bucs has been the defense. Yes Bowles defense.
    Brady is a fan of football just like everyone else. He played in New England 20plus years. He made his money and family there. His legacy. No issue at all if he watches patriots every week.

  20. D-Rok Says:

    I’m not sure this was throwing shade on anyone, really. If anything, I think it’s Brady loosening up after 20 years of gag orders. I see him discussing various topics much more at length to teach the younger generation of NFL players. In this segment, he seems to be giving props to the value of structure and hard-work to achieve success, which not only points to the league, but it’s also a lesson other youngsters can gravitate towards.

    In my opinion, he’s trying to give back and share his journey with us, and he’s been dropping a few lessons here and there.

    At any rate, I can see how others might view these comments as haze or subtle dings at his current coaches. Not sure I completely agree, though.

  21. bucs4life Says:

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and assume that anyone talking about accountability is taking a subtle dig at Bowles and Leftwich. I know, we just won and stuff. But after that streak that peaked in the losses at Panthers and vs Ravens, I can’t keep a straight face anymore. It’s just bewildering the level of coaching we’ve been getting.

  22. Irishmist Says:

    I think he was desperately looking for some creative play calling.

  23. D-Rok Says:

    As to Brady’s admission of following the Pats, doesn’t bug me a bit. How many of us are curious how our “ex’s” in life are doing – whether that be a ex-partner, an ex-employer, an ex-Alma Mater, etc.?

    I mean, I’m sure Oneil still watches Jameis. Oh wait, no he doesn’t.

  24. steele Says:

    NE will always be his team. That is just how it is. He absolutely misses BB and how things are run so well—except for how ruthlessly miserly they are with established veterans. If they had taken care of Brady and replenished the roster for him, he would have stayed in NE. They did neither, and chose a rebuild.

  25. Goatfarmer Says:

    Toad is a soon to be ex head coach. Why would he waste time trying to be better, learn from the masters?

  26. Irishmist Says:

    Okay who thinks we would be better off getting rid of Leftwich and hiring Frank Reich as OC?

  27. Goatfarmer Says:

    Ofeelyurselfyall – hey girl! How’s yalls love fantasy Winston playing tonight? Just curious.

    Many of us have been fans before y’all were born, but keep pretending yall’re the true fan or whatever.

    Probably y’all could get a lunch with a dude that looks like JaMiss some time.

  28. AmauryGuzman Says:

    The slimy saints suck. This team better win their next 3 games. Still have concerns because leftwich is still calling the plays.

  29. Beeej Says:

    I had never thought about it until I saw it pointed out—Bowles didn’t get to pick his own staff, as he only took over the team right before the draft. Would he have chosen Lefty?

  30. Goatfarmer Says:

    Leftworst Bowels can ruin any Brady momentum and kill the Bucs winning streak at one.

  31. chark Says:

    who cares,,he played 18 years there…worthless article, It means absolutely nothing!!! like almost every brady is so ridiculous how every word he says gets analyzed

  32. Uncle Urk Says:

    I figured out a way for the fans to make change. I’m starting it here and now. For the rest of the season, any bucs fans at the game should chant “IT’S A RUN” when the offense takes the field on 1st down. Every time we have first down, but the team breaks the huddle. If every fan in the stadium yells it every time and they still run it. It will make national news. The media will have to keep asking about it and maybe BL will stop calling runs on 1st down. IT’S A RUN… IT’S A RUN…. IT’S A RUN!

  33. Uncle Urk Says:

    Rewrite and repost in every media outlet… IT’S A RUN! Let’s help our team.

  34. Your Mom Says:

    i.e. NOT Todd Bowles

  35. Goatfarmer Says:

    Uncle Urk for President. For supreme commander. For emperor. For God.

  36. Goatfarmer Says:

    I just watched footage from 2021. That O-Line gave the backs a huge push. This line couldn’t push a dead cat off of a clothesline. They suck. Ergo the Bucs run game sucks. Ergo, the Bucs play action game exists not. Some of that is because Leftboob is a full boob. Ergo the Bucs offense is predictable, Brady hss no confidence, and the team sucks.

    Fix the offensive line Jason. We were calling for that, sadly you missed the memo.

    4-13 should be able to net a good Division 5 guard or two.

  37. SOEbuc Says:

    Start at the top. Brady he drove up to the away team stadium still sloppy from old azz cheese ball bob Kraft. Belicheak was focused on game day. Brady is way off this year. Need to start over with a good HC next year. With many exists and no money, continue to build through the draft.

  38. captivajim Says:

    last spring Licht made the decision Not to replace Marpet & Cappa , probowl level players , with proven vet players.. the at the end of july -he similarly deceided not to replace Jensen with a proven vet…..

    Bowles, being new HC was not going to change Lich’ts mind ,If he wanted to .

    Licht needs to be fired-hopefully as soon as season ends..Brady saved leftworst job -for now .

  39. Hodad Says:

    Starting at the top? Maybe he’s talking about the Glazers.

  40. mg Says:

    1 i buc –
    TB-12 owns you.

  41. AbucAway Says:

    I think Brady was sending a message to the Glazers

  42. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Brady was definitely sending out a subliminal message. He is very more open on his podcast. He said the team lacked effort during the games. His message was clear
