Tom Brady: It’s all about the win, not about the records

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady became the first player in NFL history to throw for 100,000 yards during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Rams, but that wasn’t the focus of his attention after the final whistle.

Brady hit rookie tight end Cade Otton for a game-winning one-yard touchdown in the final minute to cap an impressive drive and end a three-game Tampa losing streak. It was the 43rd time that Brady has authored a fourth quarter comeback, which tied Peyton Manning for the most in league history but didn’t impress Brady any more than moving into six figures for passing yards.

“It’s all about the win,” Brady said, via Jenna Laine of ESPN.com. “It’s all about the win, man. I never cared about the [records]. All about the win.”

Brady’s used to winning a lot more than he has this season, but Sunday’s result gives the Bucs a chance to turn things around before the year is out.

  1. I’m really happy Tommy doesn’t play for my team anymore. Never liked this guy even when he was a Patriot. Pretending I did and defending him was really exhausting.

    After that 2019 season I had enough. I would have really hated to have to start cheering against my team until they found a new QB. Thank goodness BB had the sense to tell this guy to take a hike and made that step unnecessary.

  2. At age 45 he leads the league in completions and has an historically low completion to interceptiom ratio (260-1).

    Easy to throw less ints when your passing game is just 4 yard passes.

  4. Just went to Wikipedia and found a list of Brady’s records, regular season, playoffs and Super Bowl. It took seven full screens of scrolling to get through them all. (He’s even won an Emmy.) Need it be said again: The Greatest Of All Time.

    Don’t know about that but for me BB’s surly act is getting tiresome and old… and so is he. Literally. Someone pointed out earlier that no NFL head coach has ever won anything with a coach older than 70. There’s a good reason for that. I think hiring two bozos to run the offense and their first round QB who was a ROTY candidate last year showing signs that they really botched his development might be a sign that the Patriots need to go in a new direction.

    Probably a moot point anyway because I think Bill retires and the Patriots have a new head coach by 2024 at the latest. Change to a younger and fresher perspective can be good. It won’t be Patricia or Judge thankfully. The Patriots will have their pick of some really good coordinators around the league and I think they’ll be fine.

    Rams blew that game!
    TB looked awful

    ————

    He actually didn’t look awful. The offense looked awful. Tampa almost blew that game actually. Brady hit Miller in the face and he couldn’t catch it and that was already likely the dagger. Mix that in with so many other drops, zero protection or run blocking and I understand why Tampa has been stinking.

    Brady can still sling it, but he has to get rid of the ball so fast that no plays can develop.

    As usual on the 44 sec drive the defense played too soft hoping to prevent a TD and it was a mistake. Also, no drops, which was huge.

    Brady obviously cannot be what he was when he was 30, but he’s way better than all but a small handful of QBs.

    Honestly once you pass Allen, Mahomes, Hurts, Lamar, Rodgers then Brady is clearly better than everyone else. It can’t even really be argued.

  7. Funny Goodell because Belichick will always have a QB problem ever since he got rid of Tom he hasn’t replaced him with a competent QB that stays healthy. Mac Jones, Cam Newton, Jimmy G, Matt Cassel all injury prone above average starters. It sucks but until he either trades for someone or drafts someone decent who stays healthy he will always have a cloud of doubt over him.

    That’s true, but Jimmy, despite his troubles, has had a pretty good career and he can still win in the league. He’s definitely a guy I think BB could have won some games with. Cam was unfortunately already done when we got him. Losing Jimmy came with another Brady Super Bowl win, so I am ok with it but would have been nice to keep Jimmy if Brady was planning to leave.

    Also could have drafted Lamar Jackson instead of Sony Michel, but Sony was a huge part of winning the 2018 season Super Bowl, so hard to complain considering some teams have never won a Super Bowl.

    Not sure what cloud of doubt you’re referring to. Funny how people say Tommy did it all.. cause that’s what he’s doing right now in Tampa and their team is still below .500. It’s almost like Brady + Bill together gets the best out of both of them. Weird.

    As for Jones – he’s showing signs that he might be a one of many young QBs in this league whose development was completely screwed up by the coaching staff. That sucks. That one is on Bill for hiring those two dopes to run the offense who are out of their element. Especially one of them coaching both OL and being the coordinator.

  10. Brady couldn’t even beat out Drew Henson and Brian Griese at Michigan. As a result 31 teams passed on him until Belichick drafted him 199th overall and made him. He then went on to win a championship in a COVID year with teams and players punting the season. He is a product of Belichick and the Patriots system.

    He actually didn’t look awful.

    Less than 5 yards per pass attempt. That’s not good either.

  12. Also could have drafted Lamar Jackson instead of Sony Michel


    I think Tommy vetoed that move.

    Thank goodness BB had the sense to tell this guy to take a hike and made that step unnecessary.

    Cam Newton, Brian Hoyer, Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe. Zero playoff wins. Yeah, good thing Belichick was smart enough to let Brady go.

  14. Imagine actually thinking Tommy was going to win a playoff game with the Patriots if he stuck around. 😂

    I don’t know what’s funnier that or the fan club celebrating a sub .500 team beating another sub .500 team with one of the worst offenses in the league 😂😂😂

  15. Brady must have done something good to get somebody all triggered.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Some people can’t accept the fact that they were the ones who gave Belichick the garbage too much credits for Patriots dynasty, which was the force behind Belichick that drove Brady away.

    During the offseason, they talked about how Belichick was “developing” Mac Jones. (by playing center for Mac Jones. How on earth was it “developing”?) If he really did, just look at how much Mac Jones has declined, that would be slap on the left faces of his fans. If he didn’t, it would be a slap on the right faces of his fans.

    Either way, the faces of Belichick’s fans are slapped badly.

    I thought about this and I think you’re right. Brady probably wouldn’t have won another playoff game under BB. He had to go elsewhere to win playoff games. A Superbowl, even!

    Belichick will never even smell another SB without Brady.

    =======================

    Good point. If you don’t believe it just look at all the playoff games Bill’s won without TB.

  18. Bet you he longs for the Patriots coaching style, and the Patriots Way. Tom watches the Patriots game every week. Probably still learning from them. He appreciates Bill Belichick, but probably now Tom appreciates him more. The Bucs has great assets. The coaches seem not to know how to maximize them. Brady played with much less with the Patriots and won many, many games.

  19. He appreciates Bill Belichick, but probably now Tom appreciates him more.

    ++++++++++++++++

    Belichick didn’t appreciate Tom.

    Name a player in Patriots now that have a shot making even Patriots HOF? There is no Patriots way, OK? Belichick’s authoritarian way worked only because Brady was willing not to challenge him.

  20. Brady played in NE for 20 years , and took less money willingly to do it. If he really thought that little of BB and his coaching / GM abilities he would have left way before he did. No one forced him to stay

    If you are one of the goofballs claiming BB stinks then you must have a really low opinion of Brady’s ability to evaluate coaching and talent. Or you just lack any critical thinking ability at all
