Former Patriots QB Tom Brady is looking good with the Bucs.
Last week New England Patriots fans were delivered a gut punch when they saw Tom Brady practicing with his new team. The six-time Super Bowl champion is now ready to take the field with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and while the Cam Newton signing has done its work in helping numb that pain, it’ll only be temporary.
And when you factor in we’re about to see a whole lot more of Brady as we get closer to the start of the 2020 season, it’s going to be even more difficult for New Englanders to cope with this new reality.
So if you’re one of those who don’t think you’ll be able to handle it, please do NOT watch this video of Brady throwing absolute darts at Bucs practice on Tuesday. TB12 looks as sharp as he’s ever been.
Make it stop!! Whether you hate Brady for leaving or not, you have to admit he’s looking good. Those passes are spot on and he’s already providing a leadership presence for the previously lost Bucs, who have failed to win more than nine games in a single season for the past decade.
Brady just turned 43 and he’s still ready to get back to work on the gridiron, so it’s easy to see why his new teammates are beyond impressed. TB12 is an ageless wonder, especially when you consider his wit on social media.
At the end of the day, Brady will forever be a Patriot. For 20 years he kept New England atop the NFL. Most players dream of one day playing in the Super Bowl and Brady did it nine times. The memories he carved out for countless Pats fans likely shaped childhoods and lifetimes.
So when you see Brady replicating his success in 2020, just be thankful he managed to do it for two decades in Foxborough, because the Bucs will probably only get 2-3 seasons out of him. That’s a good silver lining, right?
