I'm Lawrence on, and this is SportsCastr News.
So I wanna let you guys know we got a very interesting situation going on here, right? Especially what the Tom Brady thing.
Uh, Bruce Areas, his head coach blames him for being the reason that the Buccaneers actually lost the game.
Brett Farve come out and said just Yeah, he says, I think the last person you want to call out after the first game of the year is Tom Brady is what Brett Farr says.
He says now, maybe they had a mutual truce going into the game.
We're going into the season.
Hey, I'm gonna be hard on you.
I want the guys to know that we're going to treat you the same, even though, technically I'm not.
So are you okay with it? If they have that truth, great.
If not, I think you're barking up the wrong tree.
Dissension could easily enter quickly.
Maybe the saints didn't do anything that they were not ready for other than we didn't protect.
Well, Tom get hit a few times.
You get a little jittery.
First half of the Super Bowl against the Falcons.
He was getting nailed, played lackluster at best.
They went in how toe come to Jesus at halftime.
They didn't even come close to touching him in the second half, and he was flawless, so they cleaned up the protection.
The timing and the chemistry will come.
Will it come overnight? Highly doubt it, but it'll come really quickly enough and and they very easily could be four and one after five weeks.
Now here's the thing that I have to say about this.
Thanks for joining the Stream here on SportsCastr.
I went over all every single one of Tom Brady's throws in that game against the Saints.
Tom Brady was not the reason that the Buccaneers lost that game.
And this is weird for me to say, because I was hard on Brady last year as a patriot this year in that specific game going over the film.
Tom Brady was not the reason he was running for his life a lot.
He had to get rid of the football fast.
He was not on the same page with a lot of his receivers.
One of the interceptions was definitely on him.
That pick six was all on Tom Brady.
I will say that.
But come on, they shouldn't have been down as much as they were in that game.
If it wasn't for drops, there was times when Tom Brady was dropping passes perfectly to his receivers, especially down the field.
There was a pastor, Mike Evans.
He should have caught.
There was a pastor Mike Evans were.
Mike Evans wasn't on the same page as him.
There was a past.
So Mike Evans were.
Brady was expecting him to make a sharper cut.
He did not, thus was not in position to make the catch.
Had he made the cut that Brady was expecting, he would have been in the exact position that he was supposed to have been in, and that would have a completion for a first down.
Tom Brady looked like he had a lot of strength in that arm, and he looked accurate.
I mean, he was dropping dimes, especially on deep balls.
I was actually incredibly surprised by how well Tom Brady himself played.
Was there some miscommunication? Absolutely.
Was he running for his life? Yes, we knew that was gonna happen.
Most people knew.
Hey, Tampa Bay does not have the offensive line that the Patriots had, but they have a ton of weapons and they did, and they did.
But if you only have a second, have to get rid of the football, you can't be drawing up plays where guys, we're going down 30 40 yards downfield all the time.
You gotta have a lot of quick out options for Tom Brady to find them.
There were multiple times where Tom Brady was just running like crazy.
I can't put this on Tom.
He had plays where I was incredibly surprised at the strength of his arm.
When he threw the foot, they threw a football 40 yards downfield.
The Godwin, it was beautiful, hit him right on.
There was a pass interference where they the defender was holding the arm of the receiver, but it dropped right in his hand right in front of now, that past that, that will go down as an incompletion and a pass interference.
But it should have been a completion by Tom Brady and it was a beautiful pass.
There were multiple passes like that during this game.
There were multiple times when the receivers just ain't the same that they don't cut the same.
They were on the same, uh, page.
And that's going to clean up over time.
That's gonna clean up now.
Will he still have the same arm strength Week 12 as he did week one that has yet to be seen.
That has yet to be seen.
I'm just saying that against the Saints, the Saints defense their front seven with the blitzes and everything that they sent after Tom Brady did the job.
You can't lay the blame on Tom Brady on this one as much as I'd like to.
I can't drop the blame on Tom Brady on this one, but we'll find out.
I think this whole and And what really ticks me off is Bruce come out and said this.
Did he even watch the game afterwards? Did he not look at the film and go? Oh, well, yeah, that that definitely was not on Tom.
That was all the receiver for not making the cut sharp enough.
Uh, this was not definitely not on Tom.
Uh, this was a drop, you know? Now, like I said, that pick six was all on Tom.
He should have seen that that the cornerback was sitting on that pass.
But you know, you have a bad pass once in a while.
But if 80% of your passes are good and true and yet you're completing ah, lot less than that, then we got a problem.
And it's not the quarterbacks fault, right? It has to do a lot with whether or not it has a lot to do, whether or not him and the receivers are on the same page.
And when I say on the same page, I don't just mean, you know, understanding what he's supposed to do on the field.
If a receiver is not making a cut the way Tom wants him to make it, then he's going to throw the football in the place that the receiver is not gonna be at, because if you're doing an out route and he's expecting you to make a 90 degree cut and you know you make mawr of, ah hook cut, you're not gonna be in the same place at that specific time.
That's something that Tom Brady and the wide receivers we're gonna have to get down.
We talked about it early in the during training camp.
How receivers have toe work with Tom on their route running right.
They need to lay out cones and say, This is how you got to run these specific routes Mike Evans, Chris Godwin All them guys, they weren't used to making specific cuts in their routes.
Tom Brady is used to his receivers making these specific cuts in their routes and it's throwing the passing game off.
That's what That's exactly what I'm seeing that happened in this game.
Had they been on the same page as I was saying, this game would have been a lot different, they wouldn't have been down by so much going into the second half and into the fourth quarter and Tom wouldn't have had to make some of the passes that he had to make.
I want to thank Ana Nick Fan and smiling Sally for joining on SportsCastr as well. Thank you so much.
I think that this week during practice, I think that those receivers will most likely be running a lot of now if they know what's good for them.
If they looked at the film and realize and see exactly what I'm seeing, they're gonna have these receivers even running these these route trees with the cones.
Exactly the way I'm talking there will be working on that and they need to work on that, and I'm sure they will.
And they'll come out next week and look better because I was like I said, I was just really surprised by what Tom could do.
Bruce Arians was wrong about who was to blame.
The wide receivers was to Brent blame, and that offensive line was to blame for the loss.
And that sucks because there is a ton of talent on the receiving group, a ton of talent.
But they need to focus more on what they need to do.
Uh, fundamental wise, because Tom is all about fundamentals and knowing exactly when and where.
If there's time passes, that's what he needs to know.
Tom, specifically Saul that there was an open spot down the field for him, and he threw to that open spot.
Mike Evans didn't go to that spot.
Mike Evans didn't even realize the ball was coming to him.
Miscommunication over time, this will.
This will fix itself, but we'll see.
We'll see what happens from here on out.
