Brady appears to be settling in

craig44craig44 Posts: 4,177 ✭✭✭✭✭

Seems as though Tom Brady is starting to settle in with the new team. 369 yards and 5 TD. He did have one INT. that went for a touchdown, but in all reality, this is the 4th preseason game. it appears he could be on track for a big year.

    I think so too. He’s hardly thrown to Gronk outside of one game and if his offense actually gets a stretch where all of his skill position players are healthy we might see an all time type of offense from this group.
    Next up @ Chicago on SNF.

    The performance he had in that Chargers game yesterday was something else. He threw a pick six and the Bucs were down 24-7 early. I knew it wasn't over because you can never count number 12 out. Then, low and behold, he goes off on the Chargers and brings them back for the win. He showed everyone why he is the GOAT yesterday. He's a dangerous man when he's on the field, and he'll fight you with everything he has to win. Let this be a lesson to all of the Brady haters, don't ever count out number 12.

    I agree. I've been saying all along, even last year, that he still had it. It will always hurt that he left.

    I feel I should point out that this was the San Diego Chargers. hopefully that doesn't dampen all the happy talk.

    arent good players supposed to dominate lesser opponents? By Brady doing just that, it is showing that the offense is starting to get into a rhythm. Had they struggled, it would be cause for concern.

  • keetskeets Posts: 23,675 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I didn't watch the game but by the score he only "dominated" for half the game. my hunch is that once the Chargers had the big lead they did what is common in the NFL, try to milk the clock and hold on. it back-fired.

    whats wrong with the chargers? didn't they almost beat the Chiefs ?

  • craig44craig44 Posts: 4,177 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I would say 5 TD and 369 yards is a pretty good attempt at domination. That comes with no Chris Godwin, Leonard Fournette and half a game with OJ howard.

    Haters will hate regardless. Brady looked great at 43 and nothing anyone can say will take that away from him. FACT

    Nah, they choked. With no time left in the first half, up 17, instead of taking a knee and running out the clock, the Chargers tried a handoff. They fumbled on their own 6. Brady threw a touchdown. So, instead of up 17 with all the momentum, they were up 10 and reeling. Tampa scored 14 quickly in the 3rd to take the lead.

  • stevekstevek Posts: 24,208 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Well the question this season about Brady never was would he have some highlights. Even Mantle and Mays when they were totally washed up and were only in the lineup to sell tickets, could still hit a home run once in awhile.

    Of course Brady isn't in that category yet. But the question about Brady was, in my view, not that he would have at least a decent first half of the season, but how his second half of the season would go with a 43 year old body.

    After two excellent games, last night he reverted back to being a serviceable quarterback, and he's only five games into the season.

    We shall see how he progresses or regresses as the season wears on. Mentally he seems to be in the right mind frame. Will his 43 year old body accommodate him is the unknown factor.

  • 2dueces2dueces Posts: 2,844 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Can’t blame the loss last night completely on Brady. How many 3rd and 27’s can you convert in one half. We were reminded again the the Bucs are the Bucs.

    how many penalties are these idiots going to take? :D

    that dope that headbutted the guy ? every game hes good for 30 yards in penalties

  • MCMLVToppsMCMLVTopps Posts: 3,594 ✭✭✭✭

    Not many games you can win by scoring a paltry 9 points in 3 quarters...heap on top of that penalties totaling 109 yards.
    A tough loss. It appears the defense was undisciplined and careless, it was theirs to lose and they accomplished that.
    With the Packers coming to Tampa next week, the Bucs season may be ending soon, not likely they'll beat Rodgers with the performance I saw.

    It’s still not as bad as last year when he had his QB take a knee instead of having Montgomery run up the middle to get in better position for the FG attempt to win the game though. I think he ran all over the field that day and for some bizarre reason he didn’t trust him not to fumble with a carry? The Kicker just missed the FG of Ofcourse lol.

    tampa screwed up clock management too on their 16 second long drive . I think that drive with all the penalties was some kind of record breaker . They were on the 35 , marginal kick range and then marched back about 30 yards net even though Brady completed a bunch of passes , and Chicago got penalties too. It would be fun to se the box score of that drive

  • HydrantHydrant Posts: 3,413 ✭✭✭✭✭

    My thoughts on the game?.........somebody was going to win. Not worth analyzing. Two mediocre teams with mediocre coaching staffs fighting it out. Boring from start to finish.

    Tampa’s OL is not what he expected to work with and he’s thinking too much early on. Teams with new coaches, new QB’s were bound to have struggles the first 4-6 games. Look at all the undefeated teams. Same coaches, same core talent.

    Let's not get our sports talk panties in a bunch here, Mr. Brady will be just fine. I mean, they're 3-2 for pete's sake. It's not like they're the New York Jets, which haven't won a Super Bowl since the days of the Nixon administration. And speaking of the Jets, let's reach into our vault and pull out a Jets classic meme.

    Moderately is a serious understatement. Remember, this is the Bucs we are talking about.

    Brady settled in quite nicely yesterday, unlike Aaron Rodgers
    whose biggest highlight was his chippendale hump celebration in the endzone. Quite corny indeed. I was just waiting for his teammates to start stuffing dollar bills in his belt.

    Rodgers has proven to be much less of a leader than Brady. I am sure I don't need to get into all the examples of why. He certainly hasn't had the coach that Brady had, but he also is anecdotally unreceptive to coaching. And his demeanor around his team when they are down and need to make a comeback, based on my observations, is lacking. If he wins another one (which he has ample time to do) his story will be seen through a much rosier lense. But it is apparent that these years have been ones of underachievement, despite his amazing personal accomplisents.

    New Jersey has a team? The Jets ARE that bad. But I was talking about teams that actually are contenders. Green Bay isn’t that bad. Arizona isn’t as good as they looked last night. Kansas City didn’t look good against Vegas. It’s all relative.

    Rodgers has a huge attitude and thinks he is the greatest by far, he rolls his eyes at his teammates yet it’s him who gets fixated on one WR over and over again. It was Jordy Nelson before and now it’s Davante Adams, he would rather try to force a throw to them than check down to a RB. I can’t stand the guy honestly

    I agree. Rogers is a great QB with a terrible attitude and narcissistic to boot.
