Tom Brady has a major opportunity against the Denver Broncos

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady hasn’t had the start that many had hoped for to begin the season, but he has a major opportunity against the Denver Broncos.

Through two games, Tom Brady has completed 64.8 percent of his passes for 456 yards and three touchdowns to three interceptions. He also has rushed for a touchdown.

One telling statistic that typically shows the effectiveness and production of a quarterback is yards per attempt. In terms of that stat, Brady is near the bottom of the league at 6.4 Y/A, which is well below his career average of 7.5 yards per attempt.

Despite his perceptive shortcomings to begin the season, not everything that Tom Brady has done has been bad. His accuracy has been good and he has done a good job from a leadership perspective of keeping the team engaged and making a few timely plays. As a matter of fact, most would argue that him arm strength looks more than serviceable and it seems that he’s more or less trying to get on the same page with his wide receivers while navigating how to operate within his limitations.

This week is a big one for Tom Brady

Brady hasn’t been able to have the success that many Buccaneers fans were hoping for right out of the gate, but he has a major opportunity to come away with a big performance this weekend.

The Broncos have a solid defense, but that doesn’t mean their secondary can hang with the Bucs’ wide receivers. Brady has a chance to open things up a little bit, get the ball to his play-makers- who may be at their best health of the season to this point- and show Bucs nation what he is truly capable of doing.

Tom Brady was able to build a little bit of momentum last week with the win and now we can look for him to build off of that in an even bigger way this week against a depleted Broncos team.

Brady has a big opportunity on his hands and hopefully he’ll be able to come away with the best performance of the young season on Sunday.
