Según Tom Brady el mal futbol americano es lo que atrae a los fans a la NFL

Según el quarterback, “veo mucho fútbol americano malo, de mala calidad”.

Apenas arrancó la temporada y Tom Brady ya está dando opiniones controversiales. El 7 veces campeón del Super Bowl criticó a la NFL por tener demasiados equipos malos.

Según el quarterback, “veo mucho fútbol americano malo, de mala calidad”. Así se refirió a los equipos que esta temporada pelean por llevarse el Vince Lombardi.

Su delcaración va ligada a que 16 de los 32 equipos llevan un registro de dos juegos perdidos y dos juegos ganados, de las 4 semanas que llevamos.

Pero, al parecer esa mala calidad no es del todo mala. El QB de Tampa Bay asegura que es justamente ese balance (¿o desbalance?) entre los equipos lo que hace la NFL más atractiva.

“Es por esa igualdad que los fans ven fútbol todas las semanas, pues nunca sabes quién va a ganar”, agregó.

Así que la cosa está un tanto confusa. Al final la NFL lo que quiere es entretener a los aficionados y crecer el negocio. Así que los dueños de los equipos deben de estar bastante satisfechos con esa “mala calidad” de la que habla Brady.

Por lo pronto, los propios Bucs llevan un registro de 2-2. Así que Brady tendrá que concentrarse en mejorar el juego de su equipo, y dejar de estar criticando a los otros 31.

Even 45-year-old Tom Brady seems struck by the ‘bad football’ around the NFL

Brady’s been around a while, so this means a lot coming from him.

At the moment, through four weeks of the 2022 NFL season, there is just one undefeated team — the 4-0 Philadelphia Eagles. Then you have a logjam of 3-1 squads like the Bills, Cowboys, Packers, Dolphins, Chiefs, Vikings, and Giants.

Here’s where it gets messy: 15 (!) NFL teams are in football purgatory at 2-2 right now. In other words, that’s 15 teams where we’re not sure how good (or bad) they are.

For future First-Ballot Hall of Famer Tom Brady — even he seems to be surprised by the amount of mediocre football being played around the NFL. You know the league isn’t playing well overall if a 23-year veteran, who has been there and done that, doesn’t think highly of the current product:

Woof, Brady certainly doesn’t mince his words. Let’s rewind that quote:

“I think there’s a lot of bad football from what I watch. I watch a lot of bad football. Poor quality of football. That’s what I see.”

Indeed, while we might have a clear idea of the true Super Bowl contenders, there’s a big glut of squads not worth writing home about. And one final word to the wise to the experienced Brady, not that I have to remind him: His struggling Buccaneers are one of those middling 2-2 teams.

Though, given Brady’s high standard of play — I’m sure his less-than-flattering comments were about his own team, on some level, too.

Bucs make it official, terminate contract of retiring WR Cole Beasley

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have terminated the practice squad contract of retiring wide receiver Cole Beasley

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have terminated the practice squad contract of veteran wide receiver Cole Beasley, the team announced Thursday.

Beasley announced earlier this week (through his agent) his intentions to retire after nearly 11 seasons in the NFL.

In two games with the Bucs this year, Beasley caught four passes for 17 yards. He was signed to the practice squad to help bolster Tampa Bay’s receiver depth due to injuries, and was promoted to the active roster for each of those two games.

Bucs vs. Falcons injury report: Good news for Tom Brady

Check out the latest injury report for Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons have released their updated injury reports for Sunday’s game, and there are some big developments on both sides.

It’s good news for the Bucs, who saw quarterback Tom Brady return to full participation Thursday after missing practice on Wednesday due to multiple injuries.

In the bad news column for Tampa Bay, cornerback Carlton Davis III was downgraded to limited participation due to a shoulder injury, while defensive lineman Rakeem Nunez-Roches missed Thursday’s practice with an illness.

The only player on the report for Atlanta is a big one, as tight end Kyle Pitts missed practice for the second day in a row. It’s looking like a long shot that the Falcons will have their star tight end healthy in time for Sunday’s NFC South showdown.

Podcast: Why Odell Beckham Jr. to the Bucs makes perfect sense

Check out this week’s episode of the Bucs Wire podcast!

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are loaded with talented pass-catchers, but that shouldn’t stop them from adding yet another superstar to that list.

Odell Beckham Jr. is still working his way back from the torn ACL he suffered in the Super Bowl, but once he’s back to full strength, he could make a big impact for a contending team like the Bucs.

Tom Brady has been an effective recruiter in the past when it comes to attracting top talent on the open market to Tampa Bay, and he’s already got a great relationship with Beckham.

In this week’s episode of the Bucs Wire podcast, host Ryan O’Leary and Bucs Wire editor Luke Easterling break down last week’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday’s matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, and why Beckham to the Bucs makes perfect sense for all parties involved:

Tom Brady on NFL parity: ‘I think there’s a lot of bad football’

Nearly half the NFL has a .500 record through four weeks, but Tom Brady isn’t impressed

Four weeks into the 2022 NFL season, only one undefeated team remains (the 4-0 Philadelphia Eagles), and 15 of the 32 teams have a 2-2 record.

While some people might think that reflects a healthy parity at the highest level of the game, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has a different explanation.

“I think there’s a lot of bad football, from what I watch,” Brady said Thursday, shaking his head with a smile. “I watched a lot of bad football. Yeah, a poor quality of football. That’s what I see.”

If anyone might be qualified to make such a judgement, it might be Brady, who has set a ridiculous standard for excellence and consistent success over 23 years in the league.

The Bucs are one of those 2-2 teams right now, and Brady’s clearly not satisfied with their level play up to this point, either.

3 big-name additions the Bucs could still make

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could bolster their roster at some point this season with these big-name additions

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added plenty of new faces this offseason, signing household names at multiple positions as they look to make another Super Bowl run.

But there are still a few potential candidates on the open market who could interest the Bucs, all of whom could fill needs the team still has after four weeks of the regular season.

Here are three big-name additions the Bucs could still make at some point this year:

Bucs QB Tom Brady returns to practice despite multiple injuries

After missing Wednesday’s practice with multiple injuries, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was back on the field Thursday

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were back on the practice field Thursday preparing for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, and quarterback Tom Brady was back in the saddle.

The GOAT missed Wednesday’s practice due to multiple injuries to his throwing shoulder and one of the fingers on his throwing hand.

Brady has taken veteran rest days in the past, but was officially listed on the injury report has having not participated in practice due to the injuries.

Though Brady sustained the finger injury back in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints, and the shoulder injury during Sunday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, he didn’t miss any game time in either situation. he’s expected to be under center again when the Bucs host the Falcons this weekend.

Bucs vs. Falcons injury report: Tom Brady, 3 others miss practice Wednesday

Check out the initial injury report for Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons have released their initial injury reports for Sunday’s game, and there’s big news on both sides.

For the Bucs, quarterback Tom Brady missed Wednesday’s practice with multiple injuries to his right (throwing) shoulder and one of the fingers on that hand.

He was one of four Bucs who didn’t practice, joining defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (foot), safety Logan Ryan (foot), and tight end Cameron Brate (concussion).

On the Falcons side of things, tight end Kyle Pitts (hamstring) also missed Wednesday’s practice. Atlanta already placed running back Cordarrelle Patterson on injured reserve earlier this week, so not having Pitts would leave the Falcons without two of their best playmakers on offense.

Bucs QB Tom Brady misses practice due to multiple injuries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady didn’t practice Wednesday due to multiple injuries

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released their first injury report for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, and there’s a massive name at the very top.

Quarterback Tom Brady missed Wednesday’s practice due to an injury to his right (throwing) shoulder, as well as one of the fingers on his throwing hand. Brady suffered the injury on a strip-sack during last week’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, but he never left the game.

Brady has downplayed the injury throughout the week so far, and he’s been known to take a veteran day off on Wednesdays, as well. That said, he’s listed as having officially missed practice due to the injury, so it’s noteworthy.

That being said, don’t be surprised when the GOAT is still suited up Sunday against the Falcons.
