Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe is a known critic of veteran quarterback Tom Brady on his TV show “Undisputed with Skip and Shannon" for Fox Sports. But during Tuesday’s episode, Sharpe acknowledged Brady’s latest achievement of setting a new all-time record for regular-season wins with 222. “It’s a great achievement. The consistent thing is that he’s winning,” Sharpe said as he agreed with co-host Skip Bayless’ declaration that Brady is the GOAT or greatest of all time. “I didn’t think a player could play thing long, and play this good and this consistent but he has. And 220 wins in an NFL career?

You’d lucky to get 220 games,” he added. “So for him to win 222 games, wow, wow. He won more games than I played,” Sharpe stressed, adding that as a former player, he was fully aware of how it’s hard to win a game in the NFL. At the end of Brady’s career, Sharpe declared that the veteran quarterback has the chance to own all records in the NFL.

Brady sets 3 records

With their come-from-behind 38-31 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, Brady broke a tie with former teammate Adam Vinatieri for most wins in the regular season. In that game, the 43-year-old Brady went 30-for-46 for 369 yards and five touchdowns with an interception as the Buccaneers improved to an NFC South-best 3-1 mark. With his performance, Brady set two records – the oldest quarterback to throw five touchdown passes and the oldest signal-caller to throw three touchdown passes in back-to-back outings.

Brady has message for tight end

Buccaneers tight end OJ Howard will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn Achilles in their win over the Chargers. After their win over the Chargers, Buccaneers' head coach Bruce Arians expressed concern that the injury was season-ending. On Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media confirmed Arians’ fear, saying an MRI confirmed Howard’s injury and he will be out for the rest of the year.

It was devastating news for Howard, whose season will end prematurely due to injury for the third straight season. It also came after Howard had a breakthrough game against the Chargers where he caught three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown from Brady. In his Instagram story, Brady sent a heartfelt message to Howard, saying “we will miss you and you will be back better then (sic) ever next year.” Brady added that nobody works harder than Howard.

With Howard out, the Buccaneers expect veterans Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate to fill the void left by the young tight end. The Buccaneers are currently on a short week as they will face the Chicago Bears on Thursday at Soldier Field. It is also unsure if Pro Bowl wideout Chris Godwin or running back Leonard Fournette will suit up in that game.
