Tom Brady is only going up with the Buccaneers.

Tom Brady has already defied expectations during his time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. From one of his best seasons statistically during his career to an underdog Super Bowl win with a brand new team, Brady was able to accomplish the impossible during year one in his new home.

Keep in mind, Brady was able to do all of this with no legitimate offseason. Brady and company had very little time to build chemistry and get on the same page before the start of the season, and they were still able to emerge as the best offense in the league by the end of the season.

Just imagine what the Buccaneers and their new quarterback will look like with a full offseason to work together.

Tom Brady already dominated with the Buccaneers in 2020

During year 20 in the NFL, Brady threw for the fifth-most passing yards of his career and the second-most touchdowns while with a brand new team that was out of the playoffs the year before he arrived.

Given Brady’s impressive stats and how he changed the dynamic of the roster almost immediately upon arrival, he should have been in contention for MVP last season. Now, the NFL has no choice but to give Brady more attention next season after what he accomplished this past year.

It is no secret that awards like MVP are often based on popularity, and who else in the league is more popular than the greatest quarterback of all time and defending Super Bowl MVP?

If Tom Brady has a 2021 season that is even close to his year in 2020, this added attention could prove too much to pass up for MVP voters. It is also worth noting that the Bucs have already added the only weapon Brady was missing last year; a pass-catching running back.

While the Bucs as a franchise haven’t been around for too long, they are still one of the few teams in the NFL to never have a league MVP. After the success of the 2000s and the recent Super Bowl victory, there is little left for the franchise to accomplish outside of rostering an MVP. Brady could be the best chance to set history for this team, and at this point, who could be better?
