This did not appear like good news for Bucs fans and TB12 fans. Why would Brady move his podcast time up? It was his first time speaking since all the retirement news came out over the weekend. Was it true?! We were all on the edge of our seat awaiting word.
Meanwhile, in Buccaneers land, I saw in Vegas the favorite to be the Bucs starting Quarterback to open the 2022 season was Teddy Bridgewater. These are clearly desperate times, so they called for desperate measures. I made my pitch to the G.O.A.T. minutes before his show went live.
This is an offer he should strongly consider. He could play football and know the TB12 business will be in good hands for the next year. I did the TB12 for five weeks last year and three weeks this year during their playoff runs. Both very manageable, but *52 weeks?! *Minus family birthdays, major holidays, work obligations, occasional date nights, and a one week family vacation over the summer. It seems like a tall mountain to climb, but I simply cannot live in a world where I go from Tom Brady to Teddy Bridgewater.
Brady clearly got the message, because his tune seems to have changed from what the NFL Media talking heads were saying the past few days.
Was Brady swayed by my late pitch? The correlation between him delaying his decision and my offer is undeniable.
As for the actual decision, it looks like we'll all have to wait and see…
In the meantime, celebrate the G.O.A.T. and buy a shirt!
