Tom Brady named NFC offensive player of the month

Tom Brady‘s second month of games with the Buccaneers went pretty well.

Brady threw 12 touchdowns and one interception while piloting his new team to a 3-1 record over the last four weeks of action. He also ran for a score while completing 105-of-159 passes for 1,157 yards and his 13 overall touchdowns were the most of any quarterback during the month of October.

That made him the league’s choice as the NFC offensive player of the month.

It’s the 11th time that Brady has taken those monthly honors, but the first time that he’s done it in the NFC. His last time taking the prize came in November 2017.

  1. Just heard a collective gasp, it was a gust of wind from the Great state of Wisconsin, I know I know its should have been A A Ron we all get it.

  2. TRUE NEW ENGLANDERS AND PATRIOTS FANS LOVE YOU TOMMY!!

    Give em HELL in the NFC! I proudly wear my Tompa Brady T Shirt under my Tedy Bruschi #54 or Vrabel #50!

    Side note, people say we should’ve kept Tommy and blah blah blah. I’d rather him retire than wear another jersey but we had to move on and rebuild. Tommy covered up a ton of our issues with his greatness, but that doesn’t help you rebuild if you keep him. As sick as it sounds. It was the right thing to do.

    Same thing with Mookie. BorAss wanted FA so the Red Sox made the right move since he wouldn’t resign. Then covid happened and Mookie had to resign with the Dodgers.

    The Patriots would not be 2-4 with this guy at the helm
    —————————————————————————-
    The Patriots finished 2019 4-5 over their last 9 games, so even the great Tom Brady couldn’t make chicken salad out of this offensive talent.

    In other news, Bill Belicheck was NOT named AFC Coach of the Month.
    —————————————————————————
    If things keep going like they have since the middle of last season people will start to ask if he’s lost the team.

  5. I still remember being in high school and watching that Brady to Moss connection in awe back in 2007. It was most unfair thing I’d ever seen in football. That pairing, those two guys in their primes, was like a cheat code come to life. It was like watching a glitch in the matrix. Thirteen years later, Brady is still a pleasure to watch. Well deserved award. I’ll only ever root against this guy when he plays the Bills, which might not be for a while now… thankfully

  6. This was my dream scenario from the moment Brady signed with Buccaneers.

    I hope he wins a Super Bowl in Tampa while Belichick gets exposed and the Patriots implode.

    This Bills fan is going to watch in furious joy as every “Lifelong Patriots fan” all of sudden becomes a Buccaneer fan.

    Completely agree. Patsy fans forget how poor the team played the last two years even with Brady. His record was only good due to an easy schedule.

  8. After week 2 all you Patriots fans were bashing Brady saying that he was washed and had been holding them back. Going as far to say that Cam Newton was the QB that Josh and Bill had been waiting for to finally showcase their offensive genius.

    Now all of you are saying that Brady couldn’t even make these guys look good and that Cam has no help.

    Absolutely delicious to behold.

    What ????? Did you forget the 6th Super Bowl TB12 won in 2019, which I think was in that 2 year span you are referring to!

    They played poorly by “Patriots Standards” but they still won the division and made the playoffs. This current team will be lucky to go 7-9 and finish ahead of the Dolphins.

  11. I’m just here for the inevitable silly comments by fans of teams who are justifiably tired of Brady getting the better of them all of these years. A literal lifetime for some of you. Peyton Manning still can’t let it go and he’s been retired for 5 years.

    They have to at least admit one thing: they never thought it would still be going on at this high of a level at the age of 43. Unheard of in any sport.

    It really has been incredible to watch the best of all time for this long—fan or not.

    Hmm let’s see the Pats over the last two years including playoffs were 27-9, they won the Super Bowl, Brady’s regular season numbers were over 8000 yards passing, 53 TDs – 19 INTs playing with very limited talent on offense, especially last year after Gronk retired.

    Brady is proving that if you give him weapons, he can still put up stats with the best in the league. Anyone who thinks he was the problem for the Patriots last year is having a rude awakening this season.

  13. Pat hater here. After their unpresedented 20 years of success, a flat tire season was bound to happen. But IMHO, it is way to early to underestimate Belichick.

  14. Pretty obvious why the Patriots succeeded all those years, especially when you add Belichick’s record from Cleveland. Do you think Phil Jackson won all those championships or was or because of Michael Jordan? If you think Tiger Woods was the best only because of Butch Harmon you’re delirious. Bill Russell was a “systems” center under Red Auerbach. See how stupid that sounds? Bill will forever have a losing record without Brady and Tom will forever have a winning record without Belichick

    I AGREE! Its the history of the game and we all get to witness it!

  16. “ Pats fans forget how poorly the team played even with Brady the last 2 years“
    What ????? Did you forget the 6th Super Bowl TB12 won in 2019, which I think was in that 2 year span you are referring to!

    The defense won the superbowl. Brady had little to do with that win.

  17. I asked the following question to those who believed in Belichick in last 7 months, and let me ask again :

    How will SUPER CHEAP Belichick be able to stay “great” without a QB who has the skills to turn cheap short slot receivers into play makers?

    — If you look back through Belichick’s career, even as DC, he needed ALL the resource to build a PAPER TIGER (after 1986) defense. Here PAPER TIGER means that it couldn’t carry the loads in playoff.

  18. Also, let me repeat what I have said for years :

    It was Brady, not Belichick, who turned cheap, short, slot receivers, like 2001 Troy Brown, into play makers.

    How did Brady do it (in 2001)? !!!”look away from his intended receivers to fool defenders or freeze defenders from a big moment.”!!!

    IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH BELICHICK.

    Please don’t naively think that a QB who threw some spectacular PASSES IN WHICH ONLY WR CAN SEE THE BALLS will be able to do what Brady did with those cheap receivers IN FRONT OF DEFENDERS. It requires totally different skill set. A QB can have 158.3 QBR for all 16 games, and still won’t be able to do what Brady did.

  19. The defense won the superbowl. Brady had little to do with that win.

    Lame.

    A WR won MVP but the guy throwing him the ball had little to do with it.
    There was only one TD scored and it was Brady perfect pass to Gronk that got them on the one yard line.

    And I’m pretty sure Brady’s plays vs the chargers and at KC had a lot to do with it.

  20. The defense won the superbowl. Brady had little to do with that win.

    ————————————

    Naterade,

    Brady played 39 minutes against Chiefs, plus a drive that took the lead, and winning drive in OT, with crippled Gronk.

    Who else could take that team to SB? I am sure if you put Rodgers in that teams, his fans would cry about the defense for years to come.

    BTW, Brady played 33 minutes against Rams and never gave Rams offense a good field position. You know what? if 49ers offense had played 33 minutes against Chiefs, 49ers would have won the SB.

  21. It’s still so weird seeing this guy’s name next to an NFC award. By the way, there’s nothing wrong with supporting Brady now that he’s on the Bucs. Some of us were Tom Brady fans, rather than just Patriots fans. His story is legendary. It would be justice for him to win a super bowl in Tampa Bay, considering for years people called him a system quarterback, the AFC is weak, their division is awful, he has the best kicker in the league, Belichick made Brady, and yadda yadda yawn.

  22. They weren’t 4-5 in the last 9 games. They went 5-4 and one of the losses was that bizarre loss to the Dolphins where the Patriots defense gave up a TD with no seconds left on the clock when Dolphins had multiple lateral passes — The Miracle in Miami game. That loss wasn’t on Tom. They still went 12-4 for the season.

    The other losses were close & to very good teams:

    Beat Browns
    Lost to Ravens (when Edelman fumbled a pass as they were making a comeback)
    Beat Eagles
    Beat Dallas
    Lost to Houston
    Lost to KC
    Beat Bengals
    Beat Buffalo
    Lost to Miami (“the Miami Miracle”)

  23. didnthearwhat says:

    “Bill will forever have a losing record without Brady and Tom will forever have a winning record without Belichick”

    —-

    Even at Michigan, Brady was sent in to win games after the “star” QB was losing. And he won a couple of Bowl Games with spectacular 4th quarter heroics.

    Brady is a WINNER

  24. He was the greatest player in the first 100 years of football so this award launches his 2nd century of greatness.

  25. The defense won the superbowl. Brady had little to do with that win.
    —————————————
    41 in the Divisional vs. the Chargers and 37 on the road in the AFCCG vs. KC.
    But yeah, what’d Brady and the offense do that postseason?
    Whatever point you’re trying to make gets weaker by the moment.

  26. A-A-Ron had 2 wins against 1 win teams in October. How did he do in the other game he played? Rodgers was not a top 20 NFC player in October.
