Andy Reid: The way Tom Brady’s playing at age 43 is unbelievable

NFC Championship - Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Green Bay Packers

Andy Reid has coached against Tom Brady many times and will again in Super Bowl LV.

The Chiefs were the last team to beat the Buccaneers this season, back in Week 12. Tampa Bay has won seven games in a row since then, in large part due to Brady’s execution of the offense.

“You can see where Tom’s leadership on the offensive side is showing,” Reid said in his Monday press conference. “He’s playing at an extremely high level. And for somebody his age, it’s unbelievable. I mean, it’s unbelievable for a 25 year old to be doing what he’s doing, let alone a 43 year old.”

Brady threw for 40 touchdowns in the 2020 regular season — his most since setting what was then an NFL record with 50 in 2007. In the postseason, he’s completed 55 percent of his passes for 860 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions.

  1. Yes…those three interceptions were unbelievable. Give the Chiefs three extra possessions and you lose the Superbowl.

  2. If the Bucs lose 100-0 and Brady throws 5 picks, he will still be the GOAT.

    The envy and the jealousy is truly sad.

  3. I don’t find Brady’s performance unbelievable at all. It’s obvious how it’s happening, but no body in the media wants to be the one to broach the subject.

  4. not according to qb “expert” simms. you can tell it’s like salt in the wounds. first he had to be brady’s water boy in NE then brady goes to Bucs and succeeds wildly where simms failed miserably, and to top it off he beats simms’ annointed one yet again.

  5. Every NFL playoff QB would be undefeated in the playoffs with the way Tampa’s D is playing. But that’s what Tommy Terrific generally gets. Help from everywhere…the refs to the coaches to the ball boy to the…

  6. Bucs receivers let at least 8 passes slip and drop (or be intercepted) through their chilly fingers and squandered at least 1 easy TD catch.

    The jealousy flows through you…

    Did I mention how you were WRONG about EVERYTHING you said in the off-season?

  9. At this moment, Tom Brady, in is career, has thrown for 91,452 yards and 661 touchdowns, regular season and playoffs combined. So, in two more season, plus (likely) playoffs, he will reach 100,000 yards and 700 touchdowns. Really, there are no words.

  10. Can’t wait for Brady to have the most losses in Super Bowl history.

    Um, you can’t lose a Super Bowl if you you don’t get there. (Ask Phil Rivers.) Right now AND for years to come (if not forever), 6 SB wins is 2 more SB wins than anybody else. Bet on 7.

    New team, same complaints from the usual suspects. I suppose Lamar is somewhere working on his 40 time and explosive first cut so he can hit the hole hard again next year.

    And yes, Tom has gotten plenty of help from his defenses over the years, just like other great QBs have (say like your defense giving you 3 turnovers in a NFCCG) but he’s finished the job like no other. Outside the last Rams SB, Tom has had to come from behind in every SB, even the ones he lost he came from behind only to see the lead squandered again). You win some, you lose some, he wins more than most

  12. tom brady is the GOAT. hes 1 ring away from having more rings than any team.
    .
    that said, mahomes is the heir apparent… and currently better than Brady…
    .
    mahomes back to back superbowl champ.

    Rodgers and others have to play great to win these games, Tommy, mediocre. Rodgers has to score 35+ to win a playoff game 8n his career. Tommy, more than 10 points less. It’s a team sport, not tennis. One guy doesn’t do it all.

    More LAME Brady CRYBABY excuses

    Rogers has lost 2 NFC championship games when his Defense forced a total of 8 turnovers ,8!!

    Lost to Seattle when his D got 5 (Brady went for 450 on them )
    This past game 3 turnovers 6 points.

    He also had the ball first and goal TWICE inside the 8 yard line they ran it one time then he went O for 6 . He could have ran it on but made a poor decision to throw across is body into double coverage.

    And it was Brady’s bomb to Miller on 4th down 50 yards out that was the difference in the game

    Well that and the GOAT, the BEST ever was perfect in the red zone
    Where Rogers failed.

    Has for other QBs having to be great
    Your “field general “ P Manning went into the playoffs 8 times with BOTH a top 10 defense in SCORING and Yards allowed AND a top ten offense

    SEVEN of those EIGHT times ONE AND DONE.
    TWO of those SEVEN ONE and Dones his scoring defense was ranked number ONE!!

    Rogers like Manning like Brees more often than not CHOKE when the moment is biggest

    Brady doesn’t. , that’s why he is the GOAT and The BEST

  15. Ok, I got it. Only Brady would have won those SBs with NE. Why do you think Brees, Manning and Rodgers only won 1 or 2? As great as they were, you still need the pieces around you and great coaches. Brady was called nothing but a game manager even after his first 3 SB wins because it was a team effort and you could see it. Get the turnover, get in field goal range, Adam V win the game. Manning was considered better by far; that’s why he was winning MVPs. Facts.

    NOBODY calls Manning better now, nobody
    And the “game manager “ for his first 3 is revisionist history and NOT true.
    Maybe for his first SB and he still led the game winning drive.

    But the second SB he set a SB record (at the time ) for most pass attempts in the SB and there was NO defense played by either team sorry but you can’t be a “game manager” and set a record for most attempts

    Third SB he led the league in passing yards. Again you are not a “game manager “ if you lead the league in passing yards.

    Again Manning had 8 top ten Ds in scoring and yards allowed
    7 of them he went one and done
    Why? Because he came up short.
    Brees just had a top 5 defense and lost

  17. Manning was considered better by far; that’s why he was winning MVPs. Facts.

    Manning WAS (key word ) “WAS” considered
    When it’s all said and done Brady IS considered better , FACTS
