What Lessons Did Buccaneers’ David Learn From Tom Brady?


The retirement of Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback Tom Brady obviously left a huge hole in the team’s offense and leadership.

Replacing Brady on the field isn’t going to be easy. The Buccaneers are currently sorting that out with a quarterback competition between Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask. But what about the other intangibles Brady brought to the team? What lessons were learned from Brady’s presence the last three seasons?

Recently linebacker Lavonte David appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio where he discussed this.

“What did he instill in us, you know, even though that he’s gone? Never take the game for granted.” David stated from SiriusXM NFL Radio via JoeBucsFan.com,. “You never know what play will be your last and you got to keep on continue fighting when you’re out there on the field.”

David continued about Brady’s legendary competitiveness and keeping that as part of his game.

“The competitiveness that he has, it was second to none. I’ve never seen nothing like it in all my years playing football. That’s something I definitely take from him.”

You don’t adequately replace a player like Tom Brady. You look to continue or replicate some of the things he did that made him great. For David and the veteran Buccaneers’ players they’re tasked with continuing these standards. Oh and finally find a long-term answer at quarterback.

The Pewter Pirates return for training camp on July 30th when David and company can take the next step in replacing the GOAT. Both on and off the field.
