Tom Brady’s selling more jerseys in Florida than Florida teams

Tom Brady already owned the Dolphins.

So throwing the Buccaneers and Jaguars in the mix only seems reasonable.

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, the Patriots quarterback has the highest-selling jersey in the state of Florida, which has three NFL teams not the Patriots.

The numbers from NFLShop.com say that Brady’s the top-seller in 16 other states as well, so it isn’t just the fans nearest the Dolphins ordering them.

Brady is 20-9 all-time against the Dolphins, so at least they’ve beaten him occasionally. He’s 7-0 against the Jaguars (including playoffs), and 3-0 against the Buccaneers.

  1. two major reasons for this.

    1. There are a ton of north east transplants living in Florida.

    2. Florida is a terrible professional sports state when it comes to dedicated, knowledgeable, loyal fan bases. Looking at you Miami.

  2. I can’t wait to watch the Raiders pound the cheating Broncos again this year. Football season can’t get here soon enough.

    See you in the AFC Championship game, NE. May the best team win.

  3. Yah, we know. We see all the northern transplants in their Brady jerseys in wing joints talking about how bahhhhston is so great.

    Stop wearing socks with sandals ffs!!

  4. No shock, either because Brady has been great for a long time or because Florida’s full of transplants anyways. Regardless, what jerseys for Florida teams are people going to be buying? Is there someone on the Dolphins that really screams “own my jersey?” The Jaguars have a few solid players, but nobody who’s really going to drive sales. The Buccaneers have Mike Evans and Winston and in a few years could likely be up there on the jersey sales lists, but none of the Florida teams have exactly had exciting rosters for quite a while.

    He will be 3-1 against the Bucs when after that Thursday

    ————–

    No way Jameis Winston moves the ball against Belichick defense. You better hope your defense pitches a shutout against Brady if you are going to win.

  6. Some other states Brady is winning: Virginia, Illinois, Alabama, Louisiana, Montana, Kentucky, New Hampshire, Maryland, Missouri, and of course MA. Just something to remember when he runs for President in 2028.

  7. I don’t care for the pointless dig at Miami, and I know there are plenty of hard-core homies and some immature Brady-haters on PFT comments threads, but this has NOTHING to do with transplants because in the year to Feb he was No.1 nationally. What’s even more amazing is that Brady has been monstering near or at the top of jersey sales every year for 17yrs, despite the fact that he’s been wearing the same jersey for all that time (the current Pats design came out in 2000), so it’s not like previous buyers need to keep updating (although some might have worn their original ones out).

    Face it haters, away from your mommy’s basement and everywhere outside your tiny brain, Brady is a massively popular sportsman and arguably the greatest ever to play the game – and still playing it.

    This is not hard to believe, who wants to live in Boston their whole life when they can move to Florida.

    You may have a point to with that whole life thing. There’s probably something to be said for getting 80 year old bones away from ice and snow. Not to mention when the retirement funds run low a senior in the Boston area can sell their home and net enough to buy a town in FL then when dementia kicks in they will still be the smartest person in it.

    At least the State of Massachusetts would finally go red.

  10. Florida is considering changing their state bird from the Northern Mocking Bird to the Redneck Bandwagon Jumper. It’s about time Jax and Miami fans woke up and accepted reality, at least being in the NFC there’s still a flicker of hope for Tampa.

  11. Now you know one of the reasons deflateframe was not stopped by the NFL owners.

    Imagine being the owner of an NFL team and going out in public in your teams city and seeing many people wearing jerseys of a player of a rival team.

    31 owners wanting a chance to “win” a participation trophy was another reason.

    The NFL still hasn’t announced the results of the PSI study that was conducted during the 2015 NFL season.

  12. Could it be that it is because 1 state is sharing 3 fan bases?

    Take wisconsin, wisconsin has 1 NFL team, so the entire state supports the Packers (mostly). Look at a team like Denver and they no other teams within their bordering states. So their residents have literally no one else to cheer for.

    Florida isnt a huge media market to begin with, and when you split up the 3 biggest cities in that state to cheer for seperate teams, you won’t get the type of fan support as other teams get from their respective states.

    I dont know which of you guys to applaud more loudly for. Both were pretty good. Combined you won the comments feed.

  14. “Brady has a losing record against the Broncos”. Who cares, he has FIVE Super Bowl rings! FIVE! Besides, it’s only by a single win , pretty pathetic that’s all you got! LOL!!

  15. He’s up there with Jordan, DiMaggio, Gretzky and others. Among the best of his era, with many championships. That’s why. Winning does that.

    Too bad Denver wont make it to the post season. Brady could beat the Broncos twice this year.

    Brady’s jerseys do not sell well in Colorado. BTW, he has a career losing record against the Broncos.

    A lot of good that has done the Broncos. What are they, 1-1 in Super Bowls in that whole time period?

    Commonwealth. Get it right.

  19. I’m willing to bet there are numerous counts of highly popular sports stars jerseys selling higher than local teams and players.

    Why?

    Because people like to be popular. Sheep flock together.

    So if Brady is lighting it up… it is common sense that fair weather non traditional football fans will buy up his jersey.
    Lebron probably has higher jersey sales than a lot of crappy NBA teams.
    Bet there are a bunch of Sidney Crosby jerseys all over the US.

    Bandwagoners gonna bandwagon.

  20. “He will be 3-1 against the Bucs when after that Thursday night in October, book it”

    Lol whenever someone on here insists something is going to happen and closes out their post with the phrase “book it” they are invariably wrong 100% of the time.

  21. “BTW, he has a career losing record against the Broncos.”

    That’s true. 1 out of 31 other teams has a winning record against him.

    How many teams have winning records against the Donks i the same time frame? I’d bet its more than 1.

    Tom Brady has beaten the Broncos in 6 of his last 10 games, and only 2 of those losses in regulation.

    I think a window of the last 10 years should be much more relevant than going back to ancient history, yes? 🙂

  23. Wait, are you telling me that just like the other 49 states Florida has bandwagon fans too? I’m stunned by this revelation. Just stunned.
