Tom Brady Ranks Third In NFL With 4,178 Yards Passing

December 26th, 2022

Tom Brady would love a great short game on the golf course, but instead he has one on the football field.

Somehow, Brady has dinked and dunked his way to 4,178 yards passing this season. That’s third-best in the NFL behind Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow.

And to think some people think Brady is washed! Pffffttt. 

Joe is not delusional. Brady looks like he has taken a major step backwards from the guy who should have been NFL MVP last season. But Brady remains a viable quarterback who is an absolute surgeon in the four-minute and two-minute offenses.

However, as Peyton Manning famously said of his then-record number of fourth-quarter comebacks, all those late comebacks represent him playing like sh*t in the first halves of games. Brady has a lot of that going on — too much.

Still, a 45-year-old QB is leading the NFL in passing yards and attempts, and he’s crazy committed to improving even if he’s struggling to do so.

Joe would love to see what would happen if Donovan Smith and Ryan Jensen could get back on the field healthy in January. Maybe, just maybe, Brady has a flashback run in him when the brightest of lights turn on.

If Brady had been sharp last night against Arizona, the Bucs certainly would have avoided overtime, and they probably would have won going away. But back again for Brady were the off-target throws, the underthrows and the dangerous decisions.

    I don’t care about stats with Brady…….especially considering how inaccurate and off he’s been all season long.

  2. Bucsfan13 Says:

    It’s funny. Before the San Francisco game, Brady’s team leaked that he wanted to play another season. He’s looked awful since then. What team will watch his film and say we want to pickup an aging QB who’s regressed? As a Michigan alum, I’ve followed Tom’s entire career. I just hate to see him go out like this. He should’ve retired after the SB. Go out like Elway. Someone needs to intervene and tell him it’s time to retire. At this point, his team is enabling an addict.

  3. SB Says:

    Big Brady fan but he was “A$$” tonight.

  4. MadMax Says:

    jeeze Joes, really?

  5. MadMax Says:

    i cant post, even no curses and trying to watch how i word things….target on me i guess….thanks for the bullying….

  6. ModHairKen Says:

    He’s gone.

  7. SB Says:

    I would never Consider coming back to this team if he has to follow this playcalling.
    It is just Embarrassing!

  8. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Could we address the elephant in the room? Brady needs some “loving” right now. Tom has his choice of women right now. He doesn’t need anything serious, but he needs to make a move. It’s time for him to take a timeout from watching film and find him a woman. He needs to do it discreetly. Tom has plenty of handlers to take care of it. We need to stop pretending that this isn’t affecting his play.

    Brady’s bad performance.

    Let me ask you people who watched the games live.
    Washed? Too old? Cliff?
    His voice in post interview and press conference was pretty hoarse.
    He is not getting even minimum support from around him. He is forcing things now, forget about decisions. His best decisions prior to recent turnovers were MULTIPLE THREE AND OUT! and you guys were shouting at his not taking risks enough is killing our D. It is obvious that this O line is causing all sorts of havocs for Brady to have any rhythm. That is why his timing is off with WRs including Mike Evans. No protection/separation is throwing timing off.
    No, everything doesn’t not need to be perfect around him. But come on, give him something anything to work with… he is already behind eight ball with the worst rush attack and coaching.
    He has not been playing well lately. You clearly gotta see why. He is doing crazy things to get things going with this O line. Almost like trying to play QB and run the organization at the same time. His shoulders never looked heavier.
    Go Bucs.

  10. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Bucs go Bucs. I agree Brady looked off in his press conference. He probably was hoarse from raising his voice on the road. They won, but he knows they need to play better. I’m very concerned about the increase of turnovers. The OL has given Brady PTSD. He never trusted the OL since the beginning of the season! If you watched the preseason game against Indy, Brady was taking longer drops from the shotgun to hold off any pass rush. Brady is very precise in his drops, and now they’re all over the place. This was the preseason game! He never trusted the OL from start, especially the LG position with Goedeke. His mechanics are a damn mess which are affecting his throws. Brady had the best pocket mobility after Marino, but now he hardly moves. Walton was absolutely awful tonight. They can’t play him against Carolina’s pass rushers.

    People keep complaining about Evans’ production. Did you see that deep out Brady threw to him in OT? That’s a very tough throw that requires great velocity. We need more of those routes. They’re using Mike wrong. This offense needs to make adjustments because the OL isn’t holding up. They need more max protection to let those longer routes develop. Remove the Go ball from the play book. Brady can’t hit those anymore. Where are the damn seam balls that Brady and Gronk dominated the league with those throws. How about having Mike run those routes. Otton was absolutely awful tonight. They gave him the start tonight and he blew it. He missed blocks, dropped passes, and had a dumb pass penalty. It got so bad that they replaced him with Rudolph. Where was Brate?

    It was nice of Donovan to fake a foot injury in order to celebrate Christmas with his. family. Wirfs sucked it up and played on one leg. He had no business playing tonight. What a tough guy! Brady didn’t seem frustrated at all on the sideline. He didn’t break any tablets.

    Tom Brady is done. They could have easily lost against Cardinals as he was off on his throws again.

  12. tbbucs3 Says:

    Cmon Joe, 3rd most passing yards means absolutely nothing when your team leagues the league in passing attempts by a mile….how about some context next time?

  13. Joe Morello Says:

    I wish Brady and Evans could figure out how to connect the long ball. Hey, how about the return of “Playoff Lenny”..????

  14. JimmyfromNY Says:

    It’s funny if Brady was 15th in yards I wonder if the Brady trolls would use that against him? U guys never once mentioned the ineptness of the running game or the offensive line , the or the lack of seperatpn from the WR! Are you guys watching the same game as me every throw is contested. THEay KznOW EVERY PLAY THATS CoMMING. iIts always Brady, missing throws , being too slow being washed up. There’s not another quarterback in football, thatvwill be successful with this set up, it’s that bad. The only people who don’t realize it are the Brady trolls. It killed you guys last night did he went 17 of 21 for 170 yards into 117 rating in 4 th and overtime

  15. NEfan Says:

    Haha, Josh Allen threw for 170 and 2 ints, I guess he’s washed up to. Tua 3 ints. Those two should retire. Brady nor Evans can function in this O. How about the back to drops by Otton on 2nd &3 before the Jones miss throw and the 3rd & 6? How about the Gage drop on 3rd & 3 and ME13 not even looking back on the first int. ANOTHER TD called back and players not knowing where to line up almost causing a few delay of games. This is a bad offensive scheme and the players aren’t comfortable with it.

  16. Thunder Says:

    TBbucks3, you are such a child. I can picture you last night jumping up and down having a tantrum in your mom’s basement as Brady turned it on, haha. You truly have a mental illness

  17. Sumosam Says:

    This isn’t Brady’s fault. It’s the basic problem of coaching philosophy.

  18. Lamarcus Says:

    Delusions, like seeing ghost and spirits. Some humans believes in them and I think they are crazy. Just like Brady…the Bradyneers cheerleaders will fight you and say there’s nothing wrong.

  19. NEfan Says:

    Lamucus, how us it once the O goes to a spread O and hurry up Brady and Evan’s are on the same page and look like the O can beat any team? Why is that Lamucus???

  20. View from 132 Says:

    There are few other QBs that could’ve led the 2020 Bucs to a ring. But there are many many QBs that could run this awful offense in 2022. Brady is not an X factor anymore.

  21. Anonymous Says:

    They will be one and done even if they go to playoff with Old ineffective Tom B.
    Start with new young players next year and give Kyle Trask a fair shot to start.

  22. JimmyfromNY Says:

    View? I don’t agree , Brady was the best player in football in 202021 and I don’t think there’s any other quarterback that was going on the road 4,straight games and scoring 30 points in all those games. I think Brady is the only guy that wins that Super Bowl. And I know people will bring up the Green Bay game. Nobody put them in a great position in the first half playing nearly perfect football. Two of those interceptions with throwaways like punch. Outside the second half of the Green Bay game Brady played nearby perfect football in the playoffs something like nine touchdowns 0 int and 1115 quarterback rating

  23. GoatHaters Says:

    None of this matters if they win the division and the defense is fully healthy come playoff time. Holding Dallas to 3 points this year and Mahomes to 9 in the last Superbowl win means Brady barely needs to score more than 20 points. Similar to New England and the 2019 SB. The defense is key.

    With an avg makeshift OL, Wr in and out of lineup
    1st part of the year along with Brady missing on some throws he would normally make, I see the opinions of some even though I disagree
    The Bucs have a decent group of skilled guys but I would not put them in the top 10 collectively. Why do you think Brady wanted Gronk and AB so bad
    Bucs skill guys lack speed and ability to create separation. But, Brady has had his off moments this year as well and that hurts when your window is tight.

    When they win Sunday they will make playoffs for 3rd straight year. How many before that were they out in a row. There are not many football fans who understand the game. Who watch film and see everything instead of just following the ball every play. And that’s ok.

    Go Bucs!!!
