Tom Brady elevates his teammates

Tom Brady has been known for numerous strengths throughout his career, but one of his best characteristics is his ability to his teammates better. Brady has played with some exceptional wide receivers, but the other names still get their shot as well.

Brady spreads the ball out like very few quarterbacks have ever done before, and getting other players to perform at a higher level is one of the biggest reasons why Tom Brady was the perfect quarterback to bring to Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers had numerous talented players on their roster that needed to step up this year. Players like Scotty Miller and O.J. Howard had some moments in the limelight last year, but they have played at a renewed pace under Brady.

It would’ve been very easy for the GOAT to come in and throw the ball ten times a game to Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Rob Gronkowski, but Brady has spread the ball out to all of the players, which is allowing the Bucs to build spectacular depth.

Fortunately for all involved, while Brady can make the most of a bad situation, the current situation in Tampa Bay is perfect. Brady moves the ball around through all of his available targets, and five different Buccaneers caught touchdown passes in the game versus the Chargers.
