The difference between Tom Brady and Jameis Winston
It pains many Buccaneers fans to know that Jameis Winston won’t be leading the team into Training Camp this year, but rather it will be seasoned-veteran Tom Brady.
When Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the vast majority of the fanbase rejoiced as the franchise was put on the map for the first time since it won a Super Bowl almost two decades ago. Others, however, were saddened to see Winston go.
While it’s certainly understandable that some Buccaneers fans were attached to Winston- especially considering all he was able to do for the Tampa Bay area and beyond- the truth is that there is no on-the-field comparison between Winston and Tom Brady.
And honestly, it’s silly we’re still having those types of conversations.
Tom Brady is the GOAT, and he’s already done a ton for the Bucs franchise
Despite what that small contingent of the fanbase will say about Tom Brady, the truth is that he’s already done a ton for the Buccaneers without ever even stepping on a field.
When you look at what his name brings to the franchise and what that could mean for future free agents, that in and of itself is enough to see why the move was important.
But it’s so much more than that.
No one can deny that Winston had a powerful arm and solid skill. His problem was that he trusted his arm too much and it got him into trouble. He made careless errors, turned the ball over and cost the team games.
It’s not to say that Brady hasn’t made his fair share of errors during a 20-year career, but there’s a reason he’s won six Super Bowls- and no it doesn’t have to do with the talent around him.
Brady knows how to do more with less and, more times than not, makes the right decision instead of forcing it. He has plenty of arm talent, as well, and is a respected leader in the clubhouse.
There will always be a contingent of the fanbase that remains unhappy with the parting of Jameis Winston, but the differences between him and Tom Brady are astronomical and it just can’t be denied.
