Despite ‘Father Time’ narrative, Tom Brady is going to be just fine
Tom Brady signed a two-year deal worth $50 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this offseason and that set the NFL world on fire.
Though many reports had come out that Brady was wanting to leave New England– after 20 years with the Patriots- no one believe that the future Hall-of-Famer would end up with the Bucs.
When the news first surfaced that Tom Brady would be signing with the Buccaneers, a state of shock fell over many across the nation. Almost instantly, Tampa Bay went from forgotten to the forefront. Since that point, many analysts have picked the Bucs as their ‘darkhorse team’ to win the Super Bowl and others have pegged Tampa as legitimate competitors in the NFC South.
Nonetheless, a growing faction seems to believe that Tom Brady in Tampa Bay will be nothing more than a flop.
Tom Brady may be older, but he’s more focused than ever
A couple of weeks ago, Pro Football Focus released its list of the top 100 players in the NFL and they placed Tom Brady at No. 24 and said that Father Time was catching up with the quarterback.
Many other opposing fan bases have referred to Brady as a ‘washed up QB’ and ‘overrated.’ Some have said that he was nothing more than a system quarterback and that his age- and being out of New England- would be more prevalent than ever this season without Bill Belichick there to coach him.
Well, while you can believe whatever you want, the truth of the matter is that Brady didn’t get the nickname ‘The GOAT’ because of being in a system. Anyone that has watched him play knows the talent he possesses and what he brings to the table- even at the age of 42.
Brady has been meeting with his teammates and working out for several weeks now to prepare for the season and he wants nothing more than to prove to everyone that he can be successful outside of New England.
That should be scary for opposing defenses.
Continue with the ‘Father Time’ narrative if you must, but don’t be surprised when Tom Brady is putting up major numbers and continuing to prove to the nation why he has been successful for so long.
