Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady is 45-years old but still very young at heart. The seven time Super Bowl champion’s dedication to his craft has amazed many over the years. And this time Brady has really impressed Bucs QB coach Clyde Christensen.
Brady and the Buccaneers were going through a rough spell this season and have turned things around with consecutive wins over rivals. This has increased Tom Brady’s enthusiasm even more, according to QB coach Clyde Christensen.
Tom Brady is throwing harder than the coaches want him to
The 15x Pro Bowler announced his retirement from professional football earlier this year. But he changed his mind 40 days later. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback coach Clyde Christensen thinks Brady’s second retirement announcement is not on the horizon. TB12 is still setting records and recently crossed the historic 100,000 passing mark against the reigning Super Bowl Champions, the LA Rams.
“He’s playing as good as he ever has. I think he’s improving. I think he’s improving,” Christensen said before adding, “he’s throwing the ball at a high, high level.” According to the coaching staff, the five-time Super Bowl MVP is practicing throws that are highly unusual for a 45-year-old like “launching 65-yarders” in training.
Clyde spoke highly of Tom Brady’s passion for the game and how is always trying to learn and become better. This was evident in Brady’s last-minute game-winning drive against the Aaron Donald-led LA Rams and the historic win in Munich over Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks.
TB12’s post-retirement plans have to wait
Against the Seahawks Brady recorded 2 touchdowns and a 75% pass completion rate over 258 yards, scoring an impressive 111.0 passer rating. Tampa Tom connected with wide receivers Chris Godwin and Julio Jones for the touchdowns. Tom Brady has 2805 passing yards after Week 10 this season added with 12 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions with a 91.9 passer rating.
Tom Brady’s dedication to the game is unmatched. TB12 has more Super Bowl rings than not just any player but also any franchise. That’s not possible without a desire to keep learning. Brady even signed a contract with Fox Sports earlier this year to be a sports broadcaster and analyst for their NFL on NBC crew. However, with Clyde’s testimonies, it seems clear that Brady will grace the gridiron for the foreseeable future.
