Midway via the third quarter of Tampa Bay’s recreation in opposition to Seattle in Munich, Germany, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich determined to run a wildcat-looking play with Brady lined up at wideout. Solely this time, as a substitute of the quarterback enjoying the decoy position, operating again Leonard Fournette handed the ball to TB12, who proceeded to slide and fall, permitting Seahawks’ Tariq Woolen to pad his stats with a straightforward interception.
At this level within the recreation, the Buccaneers have been up 14-3 and simply exterior the purple zone. So, operating this play, on first and 10 from the Seahawks’ 22, might be a choice Leftwich/Brady want they might take again. Bucs followers in all probability received’t see that play once more on this state of affairs for fairly some time.
You’ve received a operating again taking the snap within the position of QB, you then line up a senior citizen (in soccer years) at receiver and ask him to go make a play on the ball. After analyzing this play, there have been solely two choices/reads for Fournette.

Passing the ball 10 yards downfield to some of the unathletic QBs to ever play isn’t a good suggestion. The worst factor that would occur did occur. Tampa turned the ball over and swung the momentum in Seattle’s favor just a bit bit. We’re speaking a couple of man in Brady who as soon as took practically 30 seconds to run a 40-yard “sprint” on the NFL mix. It felt like 30 seconds. And that was over 20 years in the past. Brady isn’t the participant you throw to greater than three yards downfield.
However in fact, in typical Brady vogue, he got here again and threw a landing cross the subsequent time Tampa Bay had possession. And everybody may have a great chortle about Tom’s “slip n fall” this week because the Bucs held on to win, 21-16.
Rattling, it was humorous watching Tom terrific go down like that. Prepare for every week of Brady falling memes on the web.
