While the signing of Tom Brady has received positive reviews from the majority, if there was one lingering concern that the detractors of this move would argue, it’s the amount of arm strength that Brady has left.

This isn’t a worry of Brady’s teammates though, and who better to determine how good Brady has looked than the man who delivers the ball to him on every play, Ryan Jensen. The two have been practicing together since the Bucs’ started their organized workouts at Berkeley Prep in May.

Jensen appeared recently on the Going Deep Podcast hosted by Bucs film analyst and fellow Pewter Report contributor Steven Cheah as well as former offensive lineman Willie Colon on Barstool Sports where the topic of Brady and his arm strength was brought up.

Not only does Brady still have it, according to Jensen, but he’s putting up some strong numbers on the radar gun as well.

You can watch the clip of Jensen’s comments below and listen to the entire episode here.

In before 10lb ass.. I honestly believe that the loss of arm strength is grossly exaggerated.. I actually feel like Brees’ arm has regressed more than Brady’s has..

Great article and great point by Jensen. This offense was #3 last season and carried the defense/coaching/special teams. With Brady, it should be even better.

5100 yards and 33TDs? No sweat for the goat. I can’t wait to watch the surgical accuracy on the deep passes.

No excuses. I’ve got my popcorn ready.

Got to disagree – Big S. The coaching was fine last year unless you consider the failure of Winston a coaching problem. But Winston’s turnover problems were there with Lovie Smith, there with Dirk Koetter and there with BA. Offensive was #3 in total yards (398 per game) but unfortunately last in turnovers because of Jameis Winston. 30 interceptions and 5 fumbles lost (12 fumbles in total). Winston had 35 turnovers. Tampa had 41 turnovers as a team. Carolina was 2nd in turnovers for the season at 35. The way I saw the defense is that it turned the corner… Read more »

Coaches made plenty of boneheaded mistakes last year. I would go through the list if I thought it would help. The worst mistake was two time coach of the year Bruce Arians admitting to the media he took a delay penalty to back his own kicker up. Gay then missed the kick.

Call me crazy but I’m pretty sure the closer you are, the easier the kick.

Good point about Arians blunder on the kick at the end of the game. I have been trying to forget that but you guys will not let me.

I am not sure that many other coaches bonehead mistakes that were anything but just opinions from arm chair quarterbacks.

Oh and the kicking game was shit for Winston but that didn’t contribute to losses and turnovers always chasing points?

You made Some good points, but some other consistently as well as what you pointed with Winston’s turnovers with 3 coaches was Bucs we’re consistently worst defense in league. Consistently worst run game. One of consistently worst O lines. One of consistently most aggressive offenses ran with bad o line defense and run game. Do those things affect Winston’s turnovers in your mid at all? Lol. Of course not I’m sure.

I really have moved on from Winston as you can see from my Pewter Report picture. I am just trying to envision the team with Brady. Kinda see us going from: 41 turnovers last year to 20 turnovers this year. 47 sacks last year to 32 sacks this year. 135 penalties last year to 110 penalties this year. 7 pick 6’s last year to 1 pick 6 this year. These are all guesses – maybe too favorable guesses in your opinion. Don’t care if people love or hate. I was happy with Winston when he was drafted but definitely when… Read more »

Your idea of what impact Winston had on the offense, and what type of offense you think Brady is going to run, is so incredibly misguided it’s not even funny. I’ll start with Winston. I’ve heard over and over and over about his 5100 yards and 33 TD’s. Yet, never at any point have I heard about how many of those yards or TD’s came in comeback mode because Winstons TO’s forced them to play from behind the entire game. His deep pass attempts, deep completions, ADOT, YPA, yards, and TD passes are all going to be significantly inflated because… Read more »

Bucs lead at halftime in their first 4 games. For the season, they lead at halftime 11 times with one tie vs Houston. The defense and special teams were not good last year bub.

Good point. Game 1 lead 7-6 at halftime. San Fran gets the ball in the 3rd quarter and scores. Then Winston throws pick 6 next possession. Later in the game Winston threw another pick 6. Defense allowed a lot of rushing yards but against really the best classical running team in the league. Good defense right. Game 2. Lead 10-9 at half time. Defense gave up one more field go the rest of the game. Offense gave up a safety in the 2nd half with 13 minutes left in the game. Defense held rest of the way. Good defense right.… Read more »

If this defense gives up as many passing yards and scores as last year, it will be tough to win.

If the kicker misses fgs and extra points, it will be tough to win.

If the Bucs commit penalties that take points off the board, it will be tough to win.

If the Bucs start inside their own 15 regularly, it will be tough to win.

If Arians wastes timeouts on challenges, it will be tough to win.

If our QB turns it over 37 times, and throws 7 pick sixes, it will be humanly impossible to win

Brady will be fine if he can keep upright. At 43 if he gets sacked 47 times like Winston did last year, all bets are off.

There is a 0.0 chance Brady gets sacked 47 times. So no point of even going down that hypothetical road

I typically hate these articles because it always points out the negative. However Johnny Unitas,Joe Montana,John Elway and Dan Marino all lost their zip on the ball just before Retirement. I’m not worried about Brady taking sacks because he’s too smart at the line of scrimmage to hold on to a play that’s not there. My only fear in all of this is how will Brady look in December or January when we are on a Deep Playoff Run. That’s when we will need Tom Brady the most. Painful to admit but as a Life Long Bucs fan I realize… Read more »

I am with you on both points. I was on the Brady bandwagon as soon as I found out that he was going to be available as a free agent. So I am glad we have him. Even if he is in shape and his arm is good at the beginning of the year, I worry about his ability as the season extends because of his age. I just do not know that he won’t lose some zip at the most important time of the season. But if we get to the playoffs that will certainly be an improvement. I… Read more »

Brady was like #7 in passes over 20 yards last season. Anyone who thinks he cant launch a deep pass is willfully ignorant. He just isn’t a gunslinger trying to bomb the field constantly.

Hence why he’s won 6 SB’s. Throwing bombs all game, isn’t how you typically win in this league. Can it happen, sure. But the way Brady has run his offense for 20 years, has worked. And he’s run multiple kinds of systems in NE. It’s never the same type of offense year to year. They’ve had a slant based offense with all small WR’s. He’s run a power run based offense. A heavy play action based offense. A 2 RB based offense. A heavy 12 personnel offense. A deep pass offense. A 5 wide, empty backfield offense. A heavy slot… Read more »

Brady had the 23rd ranked air yards per attempt at 7.6 yards. Drew Brees was 32nd at 6.4 yards. That is a measure of how far the pass travels to its intended target per attempt. So it’s not willfull ignorance, it’s informed. The good news is Brady will take less sacks and be more efficient in that style of offense, but will he run that type of offense in Tampa? BA has not run that type of offense, but maybe he will change. Winston had the #2 ranked air yards per attempt last year at 10.4 ypa. That lead to… Read more »
