Tom Brady instantly makes the Buccaneers a playoff contender
Brady, a six-time Super Bowl winner, has been nothing short of spectacular during his run with the New England Patriots and there’s reason to believe he still has a couple more years left in the tank to potentially compete for another championship.
The moment that Tom Brady signed with the Buccaneers, the organization became a legitimate competitor. Vegas odds on the Bucs’ chances to make the postseason increased exponentially and Tampa Bay is currently considered one of the favorites to make the playoffs and their win total is set somewhere between 9-10 wins, depending on which service you look at.
Tom Brady gives the Bucs at least two extra wins in 2020
There’s no reason to think that the Buccaneers can’t compete with Tom Brady at the helm and one thing is for sure: He adds at least two wins in value before the season is over.
Look back at some of those losses in the past. Now, here’s what Brady is going to for the franchise: He’s not going to throw that interception (or pick-six) late in the game (at least more times than not). He’s going to make the plays to win rather than missing on a throw when it desperately needs to be completed. He’s going to make the right call at the line of scrimmage that results in better pass-protection, avoiding a sack.
Because of those little things, the Buccaneers will be given extra wins in the long-term.
What I mean is this: You can take this same roster and put an average quarterback on it. That team might win 7 or 8 games, maybe 9 if things went right. Well, with Brady on the roster, you’re talking about a team that is poised to win 9 or 10 games, potentially 11 if everything went right.
That’s the difference and the value that Tom Brady brings to this team, but don’t take my word for it. Watch it play out on the field.
