“You’re trying to learn a bunch of different things and you’re trying to not only learn an offense but learn your way to work or learn guys’ names,” Brady told reporters after his first week in the Bucs’ facility. “I didn’t even know where the quarterbacks’ room was or [where] the full team meeting room was. You get in here and your brain is trying to figure out a lot of different things.We’re just getting started.#GoBucs pic.twitter.com/oYLonW032Z— Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@Buccaneers) July 29, 2020″Every day that goes by it’s getting a little bit better. I’m glad we’re not playing a game this Sunday — I’m glad we have time to prepare.MORE: Brady looks like the GOAT in practice day after turning 43″It’s been a good week or so being in here and I think I’m going to take advantage of the opportunity to improve myself so that I can be the best quarterback for this team that this team really deserves. These guys are working really hard and I want to come in here and do a great job for them.”Brady played under the same head coach, Bill Belichick, for his entire time in New England, and he had a long and successful partnership with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, too.A new team means a new playbook, with Brady having to discover how coach Bruce Arians and coordinator Byron Leftwich want things done with the Bucs. “I really haven’t had to do that in 19 years, so you forget. Man, that’s really tough — like all of the different terminologies,” he said. “You’re going back a very long time in my career to really have to put the mental energy in like I did. “I have to work at it pretty hard physically still. I put a lot of time and energy into making sure I’m feeling good in order to perform at my best, but mentally I think that’s been the thing that’s obviously had its challenges.”I think you couple that with the coronavirus situation and it became even more difficult. I think conversations we probably would’ve had in April, we’re having now. I think that part has been challenging, too, but the only thing you can do is adjust to the situation, adapt the best way you can [and] put as much time and energy now as we can into it.”The Bucs are scheduled to face Drew Brees and the NFC South rival Saints in Week 1 on Sept. 13. Tom Brady is grateful he still has another month to learn the ropes with the Buccaneers before the 2020 NFL season begins.Brady admits it will take time for him to adjust after an offseason move from the Patriots, where he spent the first two decades of his decorated career. The coronavirus pandemic has made getting up to speed with his new team even more difficult.
