Tom Brady (2020-2021)
Brady is not only the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL, but even in two seasons at age 43 and 44, he is also the greatest quarterback the Buccaneers have ever been able to call their own. We mentioned just how brutal the Bucs’ history at the quarterback position has been, and if you’ve come this far in the list, that point has probably been beaten over your head by now, but the two seasons of Brady makes all worth it.
In his first season in Tampa Bay, Brady brought the Buccaneers their second-ever Super Bowl championship at age 43. Is 2021 season at age 44 was arguably his greatest statistical season ever, and was robbed of MVP. Despite playing only two seasons with the Bucs (again at ages FORTY-THREE AND FORTY-FOUR) Brady was still able to throw for 9,949 yards, the seventh most in team history, and 83 touchdowns. The 83 touchdowns? Yeah, that’s good enough for the second-most in franchise history. Certified lunacy.
Brady was able to bring light to a franchise and fanbase stuck in the dark for so long, even playing in the sunshine state. He is without a doubt the greatest quarterback in the history of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, even if it was just for a cup of coffee. Thanks to Brady, Bucs fans will be caffeinated for a long time.
