Tom Brady needed just one tee shot to prove he was at his best in Saturday’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ preseason finale against the Indianapolis Colts. The legendary quarterback proved his ability to complete 6 of 8 passes for 44 yards Didn’t miss a beat at 45. He connected with veteran receiver Julio Jones for the first time in the game. The Buccaneers moved up the field but shot and Brady was pulled in to replace Brian Garbert after just one series. Fans’ pundits on social media love Brady’s performance Saturday as he shows he’s ready for 2022 Ready for the season. Skip Bayless @RealSkipBayless
Hehe, Tom Brady looks better than ever at 45 – the speed and accuracy of the opening shot is excellent. He even did an in-depth biography of a man who now wears size 85. Could that be… JULIO JONES? Could he be Brady’s new favorite target? !

Tom Brady went 6-for-8 for 44 yards and conceded the ball and a pass-interference free throw against the Colts. great protection. The Bucs take Ryan Succop’s 30-yard FG.
#Bucs Tom Brady came out to play football at the opening ceremony. Completed 6/8 for 44 yards, with the highlight being a 20-yard finish by Julio Jones. Cameron Brate also had two catches.
I think we were all reminded that Tom Brady is a nice guy. Don’t worry about the 11-day vacation.
Love the rhythm. Brady’s passing to Julio was impressive. GOAT spreads love.
Leonard Fournette looks really good.
IMO, one series is enough. They are ready for #GoBucs

As expected, Tom Brady finished the night and preseason after a series. They want to see him play behind the offensive line, in quick two-minute situations. Well protected. Julio Jones’ big play. cap time.
