From a pure football perspective, Tom Brady’s decision to leave the New England Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is looking pretty smart.

The new-look Buccaneers are 4-2, fresh off an impressive 38-10 trouncing of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. New England, meanwhile, has stumbled to a sloppy 2-3 start and has lost two games since Brady’s replacement, Cam Newton, tested positive for COVID-19.

Warren Moon knows a thing or two about changing teams in the latter part of a Hall of Fame career. Moon, after all, starred under center for the Houston Oilers for a decade before spending five seasons as a starter for the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks. He finished his career as a backup for the Kansas City Chiefs for two seasons.

During an appearance on WEEI, Moon said that he believes Brady’s decision to change the scenery at this stage of his career has clearly been validated six weeks into the 43-year old’s first season in Tampa.

The Buccaneers boast one of the most talented groups of skill position players in football, while New England’s unit is among the shakiest.

“I really do think that he made the right decision,” Moon told JR SportBrief. “He’s going somewhere where they have great talent around him, great wide receivers in Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. He has good tight ends; [Rob] Gronkowski comes there, a guy that he’s very, very familiar with. The running backs have been very good, and the offensive line, they really beefed that up in the offseason as well.”

Beyond the receivers, Moon noted that the Tampa Bay defense—which just dominated Aaron Rodgers—is the primary reason why Tom Brady’s decision is looking like the right one.

“But the thing I’m more encouraged about is their defense,” Moon continued. “Their defense was one of the best defenses in the league over the last seven [games] last year, and we saw what they did the other day to Green Bay. This is a defense that can be smothering. They bring a lot of pressure. If their defense is playing well and if you’ve got Tom Brady – who’s going to be efficient, he’s going to take care of the football – this is a very dangerous team going forward as they get to know each other a little bit better.”

Brady has thrown for 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2020 while completing 64.1 percent of his passes for a QB rating of 104.9.
