John Lynch Says He’s Never Seen A Player More Committed To Football Than Tom Brady

December 11th, 2022

Lay off Tom Brady, Mr. Lynch.

Bucs legend and 49ers general manager John Lynch seems to be openly drooling to be Tom Brady’s boss.

Stay away from our quarterback, Lynch!

Pending free agent Brady drew the attention of Lynch this week on KNBR radio in San Francisco.

Lynch talked about Brady as an opponent and personally beating The Goat in the postseason while playing for the Broncos. And Lynch recalled a Bucs preseason game in 2000, when the Bucs were facing the Patriots and former Bucs defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin had intel that the Patriots would do the unprecedented and keep Brady as a fourth active quarterback because they thought he had so much potential.

Lynch also drooled over his three weeks playing with Brady on the Belicheats during the 2008 preseason, after which Lynch retired.

“I got to know him a little bit, got to know what makes him tick,” Lynch said of Brady. “I’ve never seen a guy more committed to his profession. You know, that’s saying a lot. … The guy’s given his life to the game and it shows in the way he plays. It’s remarkable what he’s doing,, how he’s playing, and at times you turn on the tape and he doesn’t look any different than the guy I played against. In fact, he might be better. So it’s a challenge, to say the least.”

Joe just hopes Team Glazer is in deep negotiations with Team Brady to bring him back next season.

Joe sees no signs that Brady wants to quit — and plenty of signs that he’ll be in demand.

    No way Brady comes back with Leftnut as OC. Maybe Bill O’Brien?

  2. Casual Observer Says:

    Lynch is a smart guy. Spot on.

  3. Tucker Says:

    Not gonna lie tom in San Fran would be an epic team for sure wouldn’t mind seeing that just to see it beats him getting wasted in Tampa with this coaching staff it’s been pretty criminal.

  4. Bojim Says:

    If we win the rest of our games. However that means BL wins. So I doubt it.

  5. HC Grover Says:

    Stanks get big fines for Jordan faking injury…LOL love it.

  6. Tye Says:

    WHY would ANY qb talent look at Lefty as OC and Blows HC and want to play for either of them… They can’t win with the GOAT!

  7. Redeemer Says:

    It’s my belief that Lynch wanted Brady, but Shanahan didn’t. Kyle runs the show out there. Had he been able to swallow his ego, the 9ers have at least one ring, probably two with him. Don’t tell me the Atlanta Superbowl didn’t figure into Kyle’s madness. The idea of handing his team over to the guy that dashed his hopes, must have been a factor.

    If looked at from Brady’s perspective the Bucs REMAIN the wisest choice!!!

    I say this not as a fan but simply after viewing the facts.

    Yes Brady grew up in S.F. but how many people are willing to place much stock in being close to their childhood memories when selecting next year’s employment?
    Plus Brady is Over SF..they rejected him in the draft…rejected him when the Bucs got him…emotion will not be overwhelming in favor of a return to SF.

    Meanwhile what will really drive Brady’s decision? FOOTBALL!!!

    If the Bucs present a group talented enough to win Brady will stay. He has a comfort factor with these guys as this team has largely stayed together Brady’s entire 3 year run. They are ready to roll from day one 1.

    I think after 3 years with this same team, largely in tact, Brady has a “man bond” with these guys. They’ve been through a lot together!

    All it would take to wrap up the deal? #1 draft pick this year is a generational LT. Donavan can work with him and let him ease into a tough position. Then in either the 2nd or 3rd an interior lineman. If Licht can find another OL gem like Marpet or Cappa great…use some later picks as well.

    Bottom line. OVERCOMPENSATE in the off season on totally rebuilding and refortifying the OL!!!! THAT will bring Brady back!

    stp@ no effing way he plays for Bowels again, NO effing way!!!

    What a disaster of a season this has been. This is truly one of most difficult seasons to watch as a Bucs fan. Because Bucs came into season with high expectations. Bowles was a huge mistake of a HC hire. And Leftwich is not a good offensive coordinator. This season shows truly how good of HC Arians.

  11. Cobraboy Says:

    Brady will swap reds.

    Why on earth would he ever want to play on the same team with Leftwich as a coach?

  12. Cobraboy Says:

    Brady is wasting precious time with these knucklehead coaches.

  13. BucsCoolade Says:

    Blah .blah.. trying to process the failure at QB in 49ers last few years. Humorous.

    Lynch or Kyle.. they both suk but today’s game can support their defense and draft of samuel and getting mcCaffery..

    but if they LOSE BIG.. like I predict.. it is a sorry sad confirmation of 49ers failure to get Brady when he was in their lap and they pooped their pants at that critical moment.. lol.. we shall see..

  14. Redeemer Says:

    stpete, forget the childhood stuff. If it’s a pure football decision, it’s SF by a wide margin. Bucs have a ton of money tied to guys that will be on the roster next year. I don’t see how licht makes the team appreciably better. At this stage, Brady is looking for the easiest path to another ring.

  15. Jerry Says:

    It’s a sad season. Because you know this team will be bounced in round one, and then next year is going to be abysmally bad as we try to pay back some of those void years on the cap we’ve been handing out.

  16. Destinjohnny Says:

    Should have never let this guy out of the building as a player and GM

  17. Destinjohnny Says:

    We have an awful GM >
    Somehow nobody see’s it
    We have the worst offensive line in football
    We have a marginal secondary
    We have nobody behind 54 and 45
    Our D line two high draft picks dont have it
    Take away TB12 and we are a 3 win team

  18. Mike Johnson Says:

    Don’t worry Mr. Lynch. No matter how many mistakes the Buc team or Brady makes, the Buc fans will blame the coaches.

  19. Destinjohnny Says:

    Or the GM Mike

  20. Bucs14 Says:

    Shady is so committed to football that his wife left him. I would say his priorities in life are not correct.

    “stpete, forget the childhood stuff. If it’s a pure football decision, it’s SF by a wide margin.”

    Since halftime, it’s pretty apparent that SF doesn’t need another quarterback.

    Leave Tom. Our coaches are a pathetic embarrassment.
