Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended the season with a sad loss of 31-14, to the Dallas Cowboys.
Speculation was already running rampant on whether Tom Brady, now 45 years old, would retire – for the second time – return to the Buccaneers, or move on to play for a new NFL franchise. Will we soon be dumping “Tompa Bay” for “BRADER-NATION”??
The reasons for speculation are obvious. Whether you like it or not, many consider Tom Brady to be the greatest of all-time, but it became clear that Brady isn’t quite ready to make his decision.
Brady made his weekly appearance with Jim Gray on his Let’s Go podcast and of course, Gray asked about Brady’s future and whether there was any timetable on a decision. Is he retiring, or what?
Tom-Tom responded with an answer that wasn’t what you’d call “polite.” His short response: “Jim, if I knew what I was going to [effing] do, I would’ve already [effing] done it, okay…” Well allllriiighty then! Brady went on to say, ” I’m taking a day at a time . . . I appreciate you asking, thank you.”
Could he choose the Raiders? Everything about it makes sense.
Coaching was a major problem for Brady during this last season with the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers’ inability to adequately replace retired Bruce Arians is a big part of the reason he isn’t expected to return to Tampa Bay in 2023. It was probably the first time in his career that Brady had subpar coaching after spending the first 22 seasons of his career with Bill Belichick and Arians.
Josh McDaniels spent most of his career with the Patriots, and he worked extensively with Brady. The two enjoyed huge success together. Brady also knows McDaniels’ offense and should be able to transition back into it rather seamlessly.
So, go ahead and say it: BRADER-NATION!!!! (We know nothing for sure, I just like saying it…)
Below are some things you might not know about the GOAT man. Go easy on me, I’m just having some fun!
