We’re finally under the 30-day mark until we officially get NFL football. It’s time to rejoice, time to smile. Through everything that’s gone on in the world for the last 6-months, we finally can have football back even though it’ll look different for many reasons.
Recently, Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre spoke with USA TODAY and feels Bucs QB Tom Brady will be affected most by the pandemic. Favre, who spent 16 of his 20 years in Green Bay before signing with the New York Jets in 2008 after retiring, followed by 2-years in Minnesota, knows a thing or two about joining a new team after 15 or more years in one organization.
“For a guy like Tom Brady, you’ve got to be scratching your head – Of all the times to change teams, he’s gotta be saying, ‘How am I going to get the chemistry I’m wanting to have with the guys, with my new (teammates)’ with everything that’s limiting getting ready for a season.” -Brett Favre speaking to USA TODAY
This may not have run through Brady’s mind out loud, but he definitely seems to have answered it when he was spotted with his new wideouts and backs at Tampa’s Berkley Prep last month. In an era of COVID restricted activities, the 6-time Super Bowl Champion definitely wasn’t going to let that stop him from building chemistry and help get one another in shape before practices even began. That’s nothing new for Brady as his work ethic and mentality as always been a topic of discussion throughout his 20 years in New England, and there’s no reason to believe that it’ll stop in Tampa.
Regardless of how things have changed due to COVID protocols, one thing seems to remain consistent (WOW! sounds weird saying that as a Bucs fan), Brady is aiming to prove the doubters wrong. Stay tuned for #YearOfTheMobileQB, as I look to highlight Tom Brady, the TB12 method, and a potential weapon being added to the “Bag of Brady”
