Tom Brady extends pick-six streak to three

In 2014, Tom Brady famously said he’ll retire when he sucks. While he’s still a very long way from that category, Brady has accomplished a feat typically reserved to those who do.

As noted by ProFootballReference, Brady has become the first quarterback since Matt Schaub and Blaine Gabbert (Brady’s current backup) in 2013 to throw pick sixes in three straight games.

Brady had one in the Week 17 game last year that cost the Patriots a playoff game, he had one in the playoff loss to the Titans, and he had one on Sunday in his debut with the Buccaneers.

Then again, he also had one in Super Bowl LI. Which shows that Brady knows how to overcome periodic hurdles and challenges and to focus on what needs to be done.

That said, one of the things that needs to be done is to quit playing like Matt Schaub and Blaine Gabbert.

  1. He’s not going to have a good season he will rank bottom half of league. not only did the Pats get out just in time they might have kept him 1 year too many

  2. It was an interesting dynamic with him playing for the Bucs. When they were down, there was no feeling that he could come back at any time like when he was in NE. This time it was more like watching the Saints toy with a lesser opponent that didn’t have a chance to come back with their ageing QB only able to throw a Pick six when the game was on the line.

  3. Since the Brady/Belecheck divorce.

    Belichick at home vs the Dolphins / Brady on the road vs the Saints. Let’s keep things in perspective and revisit this in week 8.

  4. system qb he always been bad
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________

    He has 3 MVPs, 4 SB MVPs, and owns or is top 5 in every major statistical QB category imaginable. If that is “bad”, i would hate to see the QB of the team you root for.

    ??????????????????????

    Playing in front of zero fans hardly a home field advantage or disadvantage. I’m thinking the Bucs are overrated. Gronk a non factor.

  6. :Jameis Winston was on the New Orleans sideline smiling every time Tom Brady threw a pick”

    Jameis Winston is a 3rd string QB making under $1 million dollars salary as a NFL QB with starting experience. I hardly think he’s mocking anyone

  7. One factor not getting enough attention is how tough it would be for any qb to spend 20 years with one coach and one single system and then go somewhere else. Especially in a year with limited offseason workouts and no preseason at all. Confidence is everything for a QB. Not just confidence in your owns skills but confidence in the coaching, in where your receivers are going to be, in that your line will protect you. That won’t happen in Tampa instantly and could easily take longer to develop than Brady’s career has left.

  8. A Bruce Arians QB is guaranteed to be an interception machine. Jameis and Carson Palmer representin’

  9. Brady doesn’t get 6 wins to start the season anymore in his new division,, but Cam does ,Patriots success was born of a historically horribly weak division !

  10. It was his first game with a new team… playing against a Saints team that has been a contender for a few years now. Give them some time.

  11. Playing in front of zero fans hardly a home field advantage or disadvantage. I’m thinking the Bucs are overrated. Gronk a non factor.

    Okay, one played the Dolphins and the other played the Saints. Where they played is irrelevant.

    I agree that the MEDIA overrated the Bucs. As fan I was expecting pretty much what I saw on Sunday. One team with a bunch of new pieces and no preseason to even start the gelling process vs an established team that many favor to be in the Super Bowl.

    If the Bucs do come together it’s going to at least take a month in my opinion. I’m giving it a few weeks before I start passing judgement.

  12. Brady always had issues in New England if one could take away the middle-dumps into the slot without uncovering the TE or a deep-threat (when they had one). Playing with the Bucs, who have no relief into the flat (much less Edelman doing it for them), Brady has those issues out of the gate.

  13. For those who do not know NFL History, and there may be many of you, the Saints were also not in the AFC East when the Tom Brady led Patriots defeated the Saints four out of the five times they played with Brady as the starting Pats QB.

    As for Brady’s three straight pick six games, he is ambitious and wants to hold as many NFL QB records as possible before he retires.

  14. Bucs offense looked lethargic. Old man Brady doesnt have the arm strength anymore.

    People thought Winston was the problem. Bucs with Winston at least had an offense that could score with the best of them. Bucs with Brady has the turnovers that a Winston led Bucs team had, but not the offense.

    It’s not the AFC East anymore


    Yeah it’s the big bad NFC south where 3 of the 4 teams finished below 500 last season.

  16. While I believe he will get it together, it is starting to appear that he is slightly overrated. In all honesty.

  17. 3 pick-six games in a row.
    Pats fans were always saying he was consistent.
    Looks like they are finally right as far as this stat is concerned.

  18. Drew Brees is his contemporary (they are close age-wise). Drew seemed to be in much better shape than Brady and had more arm strength.

  19. no more patty cake division for Tommy Boy, he is now in a real division where you fight tooth and nail to win games, unlike the AFC East which is like a Junior College division.
