Tom Brady Simply Defied Odds

June 27th, 2023

No mere mortal QB.

Man, Joe is starting to think Bill Belicheat held Tom Brady back.

An amazing stat was dug up by an account that glorifies all that is former Bucs quarterback Tom Brady.

Regular listeners to the “Ira Kaufman Podcast” know that often, Ira, who still believes in 1970s ground-and-pound ball, was morally outraged whenever Brady threw the ball 50 times a game.

“You can’t do that!” Ira would rail, suggesting that is a formula for losing.

For most quarterbacks, Ira wasn’t wrong. At all. But Brady was no mortal quarterback. The guy kicked tail when throwing the ball 50 times a game. In fact, he had a .641 winning percentage when throwing the ball at least 50 times in a game, and that includes all postseason games.

All the other quarterbacks in NFL history who threw for 50 times a game? The combined record is a .199 winning percentage.

Joe knows Brady was a lethal gunslinger.

    We should have won at least two super bowls w him, a third if management made better decisions

    Honestly hated Brady and thought he was way over rated when he played for Belicheat.
    Boy was I wrong…way wrong!
    That stat should shut up at least one or two of the folks here….probably not though.

    Go Bucs!

    A little of those losses came last year withe bucs.

    Why we still talking about Brady? He was great, we get it. He did things other QBs haven’t been able to do. That’s why he’s the GOAT. Right now he’s not a Buc, so who cares if Belichick held him back. Hope you wrote that with a straight face Joe, Brady did win 6 S.B.’s under Bill. Let’s discuss the future instead of Brady.

    Agree, Joe.

    Brady should have stayed retired. The Bucs would be a better team right now if he hadn’t played last season. I feel like we are getting our team back. It’s not the Tampa Bay Bradys anymore. I am rooting for Trask, but worried that he’s not getting a legitimate shot at leading the team.

    Ira is absolutely right! Having a 45 year old QB throw 50x a game is elder abuse, especially with a bad OL. Bowles said when he got the job that he and Brady see the game the same way. I’m convinced Bowles meant that Brady didn’t want to throw it 50x a game last game. Brady knows the benefit of a good ground game. I would’ve just settled for a decent one. I’m a believer in the modern NFL, but I wholeheartedly agree with Ira.

    Hahahaha…Joe taking shots at Ira. “Ira, who still believes in 1970s ground-and-pound ball” Harkens back to the days of Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick.

    This is a crazy stat!

    Tom Brady is a god-king.

    Like Jesus.

  10. Da Bucs Guy Says:

    Tom Brady was so great that he dragged bruce Arians to a Superbowl and won.

  11. Fred McNeil Says:

    Quite an illuminating stat.

  12. Bee Says:

    We should’ve won back to back Superbowls

  13. RustyRhinos Says:

    Brady is Gone! He aint coming back, not in this life time. No matter how many clicks Brady gets JoeBucsFan. Brady is gone!
    Gone, Gone, Gone! BRADY IS GONE!

    Stafford ate bowezo’s lunch in those last 40 seconds of the Ram’s playoff loss . Even without AB-we would have had 2 SB’s back to back,..

    and then they promoted him to HC with a 5 yr contract !!!??? bowles is a losser – thats his record as HC .

  15. stpetebucfan Says:

    What Hodad said!!!

  16. ReggieJax Says:

    Brady is gone but not forgotten. It was awesome to have him play three years for The Bucs!

  17. 1#bucsfan Says:

    Maybe BB did hold him back JOE but let’s say TB12 threw 50x a game for his whole career. He wouldn’t have an arm left by time he was 35 lol. Kinda glad BB didn’t have him sling it like the Bucs did. TB12 the lethal gunslinger.

  18. Ed McSherry Says:

    And Brady didn’t have a losing 8-9 season last year, Bowles did.

    In the last game of the regular season, Bowles benched Brady and Mike Evans with a 17 point lead (even before halftime IIRC). Huh!?

    Bowles, as usual, foolishly, went on to try and protect this lead (way, way, way too early as he had done, typically, throughout the season) And, of course, that alone blew it, for what should have been a 9-8 winning season.

    …Still can’t believe the sheer stupidity.
