Tom Brady changed the NFL schedule for the Buccaneers and the League

Tom Brady has proven to be the most influential player in the NFL on the field, even to the point where he plays on the same field.

Tom Brady, now also referred to by his full government name as Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr., thanks to the likes of Skip Bayless and other recent chiefs when not referred to as GOAT, is undoubtedly one of the greatest athletes ever to walk the Earth. He’s also the most influential, with his career spanning three different decades for current and future NFL players, and with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers now set to play the Seattle Seahawks in Munich, Germany, he also has a chance of becoming the first player in NFL history to win Matches in four different countries.

The amount of accolades that Brady has earned is downright stressful at this point, however, and it’s also what makes his gown all the more impressive.

Of course, with all that being the case, the saga of his short retirement, and currently his current non-retirement, swept the NFL world and made everyone forget that March Madness was a thing.

Brady’s influence even reached the top positions involved in the NFL schedule-making process.

When Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times spoke with NFL broadcast chief Howard Katz, Katz said that while Brady’s return has forced a restart of the entire schedule-setting process (via Jo Bok Van):

“When Tom Brady retired, we were worried about the strength of the NFC package because there were so many great Tampa Bay games we were looking at,” Katz said. “Then a month later he retired and we kind of started over again.”

What can be said? Tom Brady moves the needle just as he moves a soccer ball, which is as much praise as possible. No wonder the primetime rosters have to adjust now that Brady is back in the fold.

Bucs fans are sure to be excited about this too, as fans from all over the world are now enjoying their team in front of a national audience. Sure the NFL pats the back softly and more Brady means more eyeballs.

Can this “news” story be suffocated into a slow news day now that the draft is in the rearview mirror? certainly. However, this does not mean that pirate fans can enjoy the notoriety that Tom Brady brings to them. As evidenced by this off-season, there is no telling how long the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the NFL, will be with him.
