Tom Brady says technology can help replace offseason work at team facility

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady may be at a disadvantage this year, joining a new team at a time when the coronavirus pandemic is likely to cancel some or all of the NFL’s offseason programs. But Brady thinks he’ll be able to learn a new offense without too much trouble.

Brady said he’ll use video conferencing and other technology to communicate with teammates and coaches and make sure he’s up to date on Bruce Arians’ offense whenever NFL teams can take the field together.

“Technology is an amazing thing and we’re going to use the technology as best we can to try to get to know each other. They’re ahead of me. I have to get up to speed on the things they already know. It’s a lot of time and energy but that’s what I love to do,” Brady said.

Brady said the mental work is something he’s going to embrace this offseason.

“In playing quarterback for a long time, that’s what I do, I watch film and I study and I try to learn and grow and evolve every year,” Brady said.

Given Brady’s proven history of great mental preparation, the Bucs may actually be at an advantage this year, with Brady leading his team in remote learning at a time when players can’t gather together.

  1. No way, So Tom won’t be faxing ideas to Bruce? This is crazy stuff. Tommy is cutting edge here.

  2. Funny how for 20 years he was a “System QB” . Now that he isn’t with the Patriots he is gonna fix a perennial losing franchise lol.

  3. ….yes Goat, technology is amazing!

    ….but it might as well be “the wheel” when you have a potus who\’s a slave to big business.

  4. “Given Brady’s proven history of great mental preparation, the Bucs may actually be at an advantage this year, with Brady leading his team in remote learning at a time when players can’t gather together.”

    Because this idea will not have occurred to any other team in the league?

  5. He definitely knows about using technology to his benefit… He learned a thing or two from BB

  6. Says the guy who skipped out on OTAs the past couple of years.

    I’ll always be thankful for what he did as a New England Patriot but it does anger me a bit that he stayed away when time could have been spent building chemistry with receivers last year.

  7. Brady has been dominating for 20 years, yet few seem to try to copy what he’s been doing. Why start now? Basically what Tom is saying is that you have a huge advantage when you line up behind center and know what the defense is about to do. You learn that from studying film. Some coaches think the word “pass” is a four letter word, so they only do it on 3rd and long. Other coaches think you only have to pass when you’re behind, so why try to throw and get out to an early lead? Like I said, why start now. Teams are still checking 40 yard dash times for QB’s. I’m not making it up. Has Tom or Peyton ever run fast? Just curious.

  8. I hope he uses the technology to figure out how to finish things off in the red zone. He (they) were’t very good, and Gronk’s absence exposed Brady.

  9. Will Brady consult The Deflator for some new technology advice? By the way, isn’t it interesting that The Deflator disappeared into witness protection never to be seen or heard from again. I’m sure patriot fans have a valid explanation for this right?

  10. Hey look, an article about Brady! How can I make a comment inserting my Trump Dreangement Syndrome?

  11. And when things go South what are the odds that it will be blamed on lack of repetitions rather than a 43 year old QB whose best years are behind him?

    He was 7th in yards despite a patchwork offense – and Edelman, who was just about the only guy Brady had all year, played most of it hurt. They still won the div for a record consecutive year. The Pats were a dynasty before Gronk – and won a title the year Gronk was out injured.

    1) Stats. LOL!!!! That was cute. Jameis Winston was the #1 QB in passing yards so he must be great right? I am right, right? Stats don’t mean anything. Watch him play.
    2) That play was not about receivers. He has clearly physically declined. Beichick knew it, and it is why he wasn’t given a long-term contract before 2018. Instead given an incentives laden contract that I am pretty sure he failed to hit any incentive.
    3) No really, stats. Cute.
    4) The AFC East is a terrible division and has been for nearly 2 decades. The Pats were as much a contributor to that was well as a beneficiary. I wouldn’t get all excited about winning the AFC East.
    5) I think he missed Gronk but again, I do not think that was the problem in NE and I do not think receivers were the problem with Brady.

    Cool thing though? We’ll all find out soon enough. That is the way it should be. Not stats.

    1. Won title while Gronk was out. Well, Gronk played most of year but left hurt for good in late-season jets game. Martellus wasn’t a zero.
    2. The pick in the end zone against Buffalo in 2019’s game #4 was textbook awful; and failing to score TD from 1st and goal at the 2 against the Titans changed the whole Titan outlook – and NE’s. The red zone performance just wasn’t there.
    3. Brady’s publicly yelling on sidelines at the young guys: Jakobi had better vibe with Stidham than with Brady and N’Keal did not play until game 9. It did not, admittedly, help that the refs were awful in the KC game – a game that would have launched N’Keal.
    4. Antonio Brown: did Brady make him, or was it potentially the other way around in 2019? BB tried, but Kraft did not want the extra ‘exposure.’

  15. The Bucs are very lucky to have landed the GOAT. Now let’s see what they do with him. I expect a big improvement in their record…not sure how far they’ll go in the playoffs, but they WILL at least be in them….

  16. I hope he uses the technology to figure out how to finish things off in the red zone. He (they) were’t very good, and Gronk’s absence exposed Brady.

    Not having a reliable TE hurt Brady as well. What is your point? The point the offense did not do a good enough job to overcome that lack of position? I will agree but to blame Brady 100% for all of last season’s failures is just juvenile.

  17. Not only was Brady 7th in passing yards, but he had nobody to throw to. His WRs were 7th in the league in drops. His accuracy suffered because he had to throw so many away when nobody was open. Edelmann and Sanu were hurt, Dorsett and the TEs were useless and the rookies barely knew where to line up. I look forward to seeing all the new usernames when TB12 lights it up in Tampa. Run and hide.
