    Love him or hate him we all love this game and it has been a hell of a ride watching him play these last two decades.

    Farewell, Tom Brady! You may have been a thorn in our side but a rose for this league..(yea, I'm corny. Deal with it)

    Corrected

    Like @thesteeldeal stated, he's not going away, just changing his jersey. Will the real Tom Brady please stand up, please stand up, please stand up? Let's see what an aging Marsha can do without the hoodster pulling the wool over the NFL's eyes. I don't see this scenario playing out well for him, and I couldn't be happier.

    Screw him and the patriot colored horse he rode in on.

    I've been looking forward to this day for a long time. It would be nice if Brady retired, but he won't be the same on another team without Darth Hoodie. It sucks the Steelers wasted so many good years, while Brady/Patriots were racking up Super Bowl wins. Looking back on the window of 2014-2017 is depressing. Now the Steelers are a middle-of-the-pack team and won't be elite again for the foreseeable future.

    He will go to Tampa.

    He can do his thing Arians will let him, Arians will let him bring AB on a cheap deal.

    Then you got Evans, AB, Godwin, Howard, and Brate.

    No one in the league will out do that combo of receiving threats.

    Good riddance. Glad to never have to see him suut up for the Pats again. Hopefully this ends the Pats dynasty. I stress the word hopefully.

    I think he ends up in Tennessee with Vrabel. He could put that team over the top.

    It’s Tampa or Chargers, most likely Tampa, multiple sources reporting that he will sign there tomorrow.

    If he does go to the Bucs I don’t think they will want or need AB, they already have Evans and Godwin. They need offensive line help and a running back. Panthers are reportedly open to trading Mccaffery but will hardly allow him to go to a division rival, that would be scary

    Sucks that we won't get to exact retribution on him this year. And it's quite possible we never play him again if he signs with Tampa.

    There is always the Super Bowl.

    But yes we just played Tampa in 2018 season, so no game until 2022 against them.

    If he goes to Chargers, we don't play them this year, but playoffs could always be possible.

    Ravens catch a break that they get the Pats without Brady this year and we have to play the Bills who are loading up for a Superbowl run.

    We have a better chance at the playoffs than the Bucs and Chargers combined. Marsha won't likely make either of those teams relevant in the next couple years.

    Edit: Wait, we're expanding the playoff field. So I guess they do have a chance of getting in.

    He should still be good enough to make them very relevant but yeah, would not surprise me if he goes to the Bucs and looks bang average, especially if they don’t significantly improve their offensive line.

    Can he take the beating it takes to play in BAs system?

    BAs system? Lol. If he’s going there it’s already assumed he’s gonna run whatever system he wants and he’s comfortable in....

    OL was ranked 10th in pass protection and 15th running. He improves that on his own with the way he likes to play.

    Really? Didn’t know that, they struggled a bit in previous years. It’s all set up for him there then. If they can put a decent defence out then they’ll be a dangerous team.

    I saw it in a tweet,don’t remember from who. I’m thinking it’s accurate. What I didn’t realize was how stifling their run defense was last year. Something like 70yds per game. Todd Bowles is a very good DC.

    Are they a team that could make a run if they add a few pieces? They found two good cover corners in last years draft too.

    If Brady wins his seventh ring there I might actually get physically ill. Much as I respect him all the hero worship he gets is incredibly annoying

    They might just rename them the Tom Brady Buccaneers...
