Now that Tom Brady has officially retired from the NFL (for now) where does he rank in Buccaneers history at the quarterback position?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had quite an intriguing or even unique history when it comes to the quarterback position. In their two Super Bowl championships in their franchise history, Tom Brady was the quarterback for one, the undisputed GOAT of GOATs, and the other was one with Brad Johnson under center. Talk about running spectrum.
However, other than these two periods, the Bucs as a franchise have been almost cursed when it comes to the quarterback position. It’s not that they’ve picked the wrong ones to choose per se, it’s just that they have always been a team with many holes to fill other than the most important position. They have always been a franchise always looking for that one player to fix everything, and turn the ship around when in reality it takes a whole crew.
Even in their most successful periods, other than the aforementioned Super Bowl title runs, the quarterback position left much to be desired. The other quarterbacks to start playoff games for the Bucs haven’t exactly been a Mount Rushmore.
With that said let’s take a look at the top ten quarterbacks in the history of the Buccaneers, and where Brady ranks, for no other reason than we need a good laugh.
