doubledragondoubledragon Posts: 23,011 ✭✭✭✭✭

If anyone has any updates on what Tom Brady is going to do for the 2023 NFL season, please share them on this thread as the news develops, I can't wait to see what his next move is going to be. I want to track this story throughout the offseason. Perhaps? 🤔

    I don't think he'll retire, he loves the game too much, I think he'll play until the wheels fall off.

    I hope he retires. The options are as follows: play next year at the same or worse mediocre level and tarnish a stellar career --- or --- play next year and risk a very serious injury due to diminished physical ability. I'd hate to see either outcome. My preference is to see him ride off into the sunset. B)

    I'd like to see him retire but he will play next year in my opinion

    I disagree with the theory that he's washed up, I think he's still got a lot left in the tank. He threw for 4,694 yards, 25 TDs, and 9 INT this year. Those stats are better than some of his seasons in New England. Oh no, don't count number 12 out just yet.

    If he succeeds with the next team, he will need some decent receivers and a competent offensive coordinator. He left New England because of the receivers and will leave Tampa because of the coaching.

    I still think he should retire. Why end up in a wheelchair?

    "Brady said he was going to go home and try to get a good night of sleep, but beyond that, he offered no timeline for when he might make a decision about his future. Last year, he retired and then returned little more than a month later. This time, he said, it would be "one day at a time, truly."

    He can't tarnish his career at this point. I think he will go to SF, Vegas, or Miami if he doesn't hang it up.

    While he definitely didn't play great this season, you could tell he had no faith whatsoever in his line. I think peak Brady would have still won with the Bucs this year, they had enough talent to get deep into the playoffs but this version Brady needs a great O line and receivers that can get open (as well as coaches that don't suck).

    Any of the three teams above would be a great fit for Brady, all have lots of offensive weapons.

    Las Vegas would be a great choice, he would look awesome in Silver and Black. I just wish the Raiders had a different owner, I don't know about this Mark Davis guy. The man is a billionaire and look at him, Tom is going to have give him a few tips on fashion and haircut.

    He had 6.4 yards per attempt probably the lowest of his career. He only got those yards because he set a record for attempts at 733.
    To put it into perspective Mahomes would have thrown for just shy of 6000 yards with his 8.1 per attempt if he had 733 pass attempts.

    I would love to see the Raiders make another colossal mistake and sign Grandpa Brady. A QB in silver and black who is borderline incompetent playing in the same division as Mahomes and Herbert, yeah that’s gonna work out great. 🤭
    Bring back Gruden also.

    It's not entirely inconceivable that the GOAT lurks here. This would make for pretty good bulletin board material for him. Your words might come back to bite you. 😉

    I think Mark Davis has the biggest problem with hair issues, and it's rubs off on his players. Remember when Antonio Brown signed with the Raiders for a brief time, what happened to his hair? Here, just look at him, he was a sloppy mess!

    I thought Brady looked awful against Dallas. Even when not pressured, he was underthrowing receivers left and right. He looked like he'd lost more than a little bit off his fastball in that game.

    That said, in the right situation, with a team that has a running attack, I think Brady can be successful again. But if the team is built around him as a one-man show? No chance for success.

    Brady needs a good team to carry him. He can no longer carry a mediocre to good team. I hope he retires before they let him know he is no longer welcome.

    Agreed. But then just about any QB can plug and play so why take a 46 year old? Let’s not kid ourselves about Purdy. He has a stacked team around him and hasn’t taken that “Welcome to the NFL” hit yet. Let’s see if he really belongs

    I guess that is where we differ then. I feel exactly as you say above regarding watching him in TB, wishing him success, ut hoping NE beats the Bucs if it's head to head. . However, built into those feelings is the knowledge of and sense of history and what he achieved within the Patriots organization. And Brady knows darn well that it should be a non-starter for him to play for another AFC East team. Yes, it is a business, and guys get traded or sign elsewhere. But part of Brady's legacy is that two decade one team run. It was unique. And special in a way that has never been done before. So if he was to go to Miami, and play there, I will feel that he has gone a step too far. I say I wouldn't watch or support him. That does not mean that I would wish for his failure. I would not openly root against him. It would just be different. I am sure that many people here will read my words and scoff at the silliness of one of the last remaining Brady holdouts, but it is just my opinion. :#

    Brady has a history of being able to make chicken salad out of chicken pop tarts. and i mean that as an extreme compliment. in my mind that's a huge reason why he's considered the GOAT. but that's no longer the case.

    and eventually, if he sticks around long enough, a loaded team is not going to be able to make chicken salad out of his chicken pop tarts. the erosion process will no doubt continue, and it'll be even more demonstrable if he is out there playing at age 46.

    @thisistheshow thinks i'm a Brady hater, but truthfully i'm not. the extreme adulation bugs me, but it doesn't play a part in my objective analysis. when a game kicks off, i'm simply watching and observing as a fan of the sport. and what i observed against the Cowboys was a 45-yr-old man attempting to play quarterback, as i stated previously. he is absolutely a shell of his former self. might sound harsh, but that's simply what the eye test told me. i saw so many unBrady-like throws. the red zone can of corn INT he just lofted up made me wince.

    Dak Prescott's QBR was four times higher than Tom's was in that game. one quarterback elevated his play when his team needed him most, and the other quarterback produced a bottom-of-the-barrel performance. if you watched that game intently and are being completely honest with yourself, there's no other way to describe it.

    and it's just unwise to think that things will miraculously get better from here. father time is probably chuckling at the mere thought of it.

    Hey, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I have always enjoyed following the "local" legends even after moving on from Boston. I enjoyed watching Bledsoe, Boggs, Clemens, Pedro, Evans, Betts and a whole host of others after they left my local teams. I dont remember rooting for them to come back and beat the local team, but I always wanted them to have good individual games.

I dont remember rooting for them to come back and beat the local team, but I always wanted them to have good individual games.

    ...
    That's the thing. I did the same thing. There's just something that rubs me the wrong way about him possibly being a Dolphin ( or a Jet or Bill, lol). I guess I am just talking this through and preemptively trying to get ahead of my feelings if this were to happen.

    I don't mean to scare you, this might mean something or it might mean nothing at all, but I figured you need to know. Tom Brady has rented an apartment in Miami.

    No worries, that's just Tom's new shag pad. Its for when he's sneakin in random super models, so he doesn't have to worry about his ex baby mama standing in the yard across from the family house and keepin a head count. 😎

    and by the way, I think he will be back next season. they should have fired Byron halfway through the season and had Arians call plays the rest of the way.

    ....
    I'm curious if you feeel like me, as you are also one of the strong Brady supporters like me...I will absolutely not watch or support him if he follows through on his wish to play in Miami. I was disgusted by those reports.

    I will watch and cheer for Tommy no matter where he plays. I am super loyal to him. I will do exactly as i did when he played for the Bucs. when he plays the Patriots, I will root for him to have a big personal game and for NE to win.

    ....
    I guess that is where we differ then. I feel exactly as you say above regarding watching him in TB, wishing him success, ut hoping NE beats the Bucs if it's head to head. . However, built into those feelings is the knowledge of and sense of history and what he achieved within the Patriots organization. And Brady knows darn well that it should be a non-starter for him to play for another AFC East team. Yes, it is a business, and guys get traded or sign elsewhere. But part of Brady's legacy is that two decade one team run. It was unique. And special in a way that has never been done before. So if he was to go to Miami, and play there, I will feel that he has gone a step too far. I say I wouldn't watch or support him. That does not mean that I would wish for his failure. I would not openly root against him. It would just be different. I am sure that many people here will read my words and scoff at the silliness of one of the last remaining Brady holdouts, but it is just my opinion. :#

    Ah yes, a shag pad, of course. I'm sure Tom will put it to good use. 🤔

    I disagree with the theory that he's washed up, I think he's still got a lot left in the tank. He threw for 4,694 yards, 25 TDs, and 9 INT this year. Those stats are better than some of his seasons in New England. Oh no, don't count number 12 out just yet.

    He had 6.4 yards per attempt probably the lowest of his career. He only got those yards because he set a record for attempts at 733.
    To put it into perspective Mahomes would have thrown for just shy of 6000 yards with his 8.1 per attempt if he had 733 pass attempts.

    Excellent point. TB was behind so often this season, Brady was able to rack up a lot of cumulative stats this season. His 6.4 YPA was second lowest after 6.3 back in 2002.

    Draft kings has him at +150 odds taking his first snap for the Raiders next year.
    Please let this happen nothing like going out on bottom!

    Are you just sick of Brady? Because I can only assume you appreciate him like I do Mahomes...

    Brady's newest comments - " Of course I'm going to play somewhere next season - I't's not like I have a Wife and family to go home to"

    The #Raiders believe Tom Brady would consider signing with them if he returns for the 2023 season.

    The Raiders are one of "about three teams" Brady would consider, according to @JFowlerESPN

    The #Bucs are also not completely out of it.
