Tom Brady will leave the New England Patriots and is expected to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This will be an end of an era with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady splitting up. Brady wants to prove he can have success without Belichick. People say he is a product of Belichicks system. He was the perfect quarterback for Belichick’s system. We will see how he plays in a new system. I don’t see it working as well as the Patriots because of losing the familiarity of his previous. It is possible that Belichick decided to go in a different direction at quarterback. Belichick wants to show he can win without Tom Brady. He already proved it in 2008 winning 11 games with Matt Cassell. He would want to prove that he can win no matter who is the quarterback.
The Bucs are not going to be a Super Bowl contender. I don’t believe it will help Brady’s career. Brady is a 43-year-old quarterback and has shown decline this past season. The situation isn’t going to hurt Brady if he is terrible because of his age. I feel like he is going to be an average quarterback. They might make the playoffs as a wild card team especially with the playoffs field expanding. I wouldn’t bet on them making the playoffs. I don’t see him making a big difference in a tougher conference and division. It is going to be weird to see Brady in a different uniform. I just don’t see Brady in a Buccaneers uniform.
For the Patriots, it would be interesting to see who they go with. Some of their options include their current quarterback Jarrett Stidham, Andy Dalton, Cam Newton, and Nick Foles. I don’t see any of those quarterbacks winning a Super Bowl. With Dalton, Newton, or Foles I could see then winning the division. Another option is drafting a quarterback. Moving up and Drafting a quarterback is their best move. The most likely option with veterans would be Nick Foles. I wouldn’t count the Patriots out for winning the division. My guess is they would win 8-10 games. The Bills will win the division and put an end to the Patriots dynasty.
