It’s official, quarterback Tom Brady is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.
When you think of Brady you think of three things… champion, leader, and warrior. He’s a six-time Super Bowl champion and has won multiple MVP awards. He left an organization he’s been with for two decades to try and bring a championship back to Tampa.
It won’t be easy and will take a lot of hard work. However, when you know what it’s like to be a winner and a champion you can bring that mentality to a new locker-room. Certainly, one that has been starving for playoff success.
Brady is a leader on and off the field. He loves to lead by example and get the most out of himself and his teammates. He’s always the one on the sideline giving his teammates tips and rallying them when they might be down. It’s no coincidence he has been at the forefront of many comebacks over the last 20 years. Most notably, he led the Patriots to a 25-point comeback in Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons. That doesn’t happen without TB12 at the helm.

A former sixth-round draft pick in 2000, he began his career as a no-name backup from Michigan. He started as the fourth quarterback on the roster in 2000 and, at that point, nobody could have imagined he would become a long-time starter, let alone the greatest quarterback of all time. However, it was his work ethic and warrior mentality that helped define what we know as ‘The Patriot Way’. A mantra every Bucs fan around the globe hopes he brings to Tampa Bay.
Yet, if you were to ask him, he would tell you that he still has more to prove. That’s why, going on 43, he still has the drive to compete and, most importantly, IMPROVE his game. Sometimes, that drive is limited with some veteran players as they reach the end of their careers. Especially those who have a resume like Brady’s… well not EXACTLY like Brady’s.
In Tampa, it will be quite a different environment for Brady. Head coach Bruce Arians isn’t Bill Belichick. He is a “player’s coach” which is in stark contrast to Belichick’s no-nonsense approach. In addition, the personnel around Brady on the offensive side is perhaps the best he has had in quite some time.
In addition to star wideouts, Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, Brady will be throwing to tight end O.J. Howard. Although he is not Rob Gronkowski, he is a huge upgrade over what Brady had in 2019 with the Patriots. Expect his production to climb this season. Brady instantly makes anyone around him better, in this case, the opposite may be true and Brady will flourish because of it.
Not to mention, with Super Bowl 55 in Tampa, Brady can do another thing no one else has done before… lead a team to a Super Bowl in their home stadium. Just another challenge for the G.O.A.T.
