On Jan 21, 2015, Johnson later on admitted to bribing brawl boys to change the footballs used during the Super Bowl. According to Johnson: “I paid some guys off to become the balls right. I went and got all 100 footballs, and they took care of all of them.”[26]
[27]
He besides stated that he “did nothing wrong”, and that he talked to opposing Oakland Raiders QB Rich Gannon beforehand and both agreed that they preferred non to use the slick, brand-new balls that the league provided for the game.[28]

In 2003, he won the NFL’s “Quarterback Challenge” competition, in which he beat Pro Bowl QBs Tom Brady, Matt Hasselbeck, Jeff Garcia, Marking Brunell, Marc Bulger and others like Byron Leftwich and Joey Harrington in a skills competition with four parts involving accuracy, speed and mobility, long distance throw, and “No Huddle.”[i]
Former teammate Sean Salisbury said that despite having big, strong arms and a bully deep ball, Brad always played information technology safe and went for the fast and piece of cake completion which earned him the nickname “Checkdown Charlie” among friends.[2]

Afterward the Super Basin, the Buccaneers ran into some problems. Although Johnson had good passing stats in 2003-2004 the yr after the Super Basin (3,811 yards, 26 touchdowns to break the Buccaneers’ record again, 21 interceptions, and named 2003 Buccaneers MVP past the Tampa Sports Order) and 2004 (63% completion rate) they benched him the fourth game into the 2004 flavour considering the team had gone four–xi for the final 15 games Johnson started. When the backup quarterback, Chris Simms was injured they started third cord quarterback Brian Griese instead of Johnson partly considering of salary cap bug. Johnson asked out and was cut from the team at the end of the season. When he couldn’t find a starting quarterback job, he signed with the Minnesota Vikings to be the backup quarterback.


Back in Minnesota (2005–2006)

[edit]

In 2005, Minnesota was struggling with now three-time Pro Bowler Daunte Culpepper starting at quarterback. Randy Moss had been traded in March of that year, and iv-time Pro Bowl Center Matt Birk was injured so Culpepper was expected to deport the criminal offence confronting the top defenses in the NFL. While playing without whatsoever offensive weapons, and falling backside early on in games the Vikings began the season at 2–5 with Culpepper throwing twice as many interceptions – twelve – as touchdowns – six – and v fumbles (three lost) before tearing his MCL, ACL, and PCL in the 7th game.

Johnson then took over equally starting quarterback and the team then finished the season 7–2 with a six-game winning streak needing only ane more win to become to the playoffs. Brad played very well and set a squad record for everyman interception to try ratio (1.3% – same equally his record in Tampa) which was the lowest in the NFL among starting QBs. While starting against teams that included the second (Bears), quaternary (Ravens), fifth (Steelers), and 7th (Packers) ranked defenses in the NFL[iii]
his passer rating was the third best in the NFC amid starting quarterbacks[four], and was also improve than three QBs selected to the Pro Bowl. But he struggled in those item games with the exception of the Bears game in which the Bears had already clinched the division and played all of their 2d and 3rd stringers. He also scored more touchdowns per game than 4 selected to the Pro Bowl. And despite his age he threw just equally many 40+ yard passes every bit top 29 yr former QB Peyton Manning – six – in seven fewer games, which was the same amount as his Super Basin year which had four more games.

Johnson was named the starting quarterback for the Vikings 2006 season, and a few days before the 2d game he turned 38 which fabricated him the oldest starting quarterback in the league. Many felt his quick-release style was a adept fit for and so-new motorcoach Brad Childress’south highly touted W Coast system. The knowledge he had acquired from going to the playoffs nether iv different coaching systems and having winning records with seven different head coaches seemed to be an asset for first time head autobus Childress. In the preseason, Johnson had a passer rating of 110.vii, one of the top 10 in the league out of more 100 quarterbacks who performed.

However, in the regular season, Johnson struggled worse than Daunte Culpepper did in 2005, throwing eight touchdowns to fifteen interceptions. Midway through the season, he had already fix an NFL tape for passes completed short of a starting time down on third down in a season. Many fans grew restless for the benching of Johnson because of his conservative checkdowns, immobility, and at the same time reckless decisions which plagued the Vikings offense. His quarterback-rating on 3rd downs, with a lead, from behind, and in the red zone were the worst in the entire league. 31 QBs threw more touchdown passes while but 10 threw more than interceptions than Johnson in the 2006 NFL season.

On February 28, 2007, the Vikings released Johnson in favor of rookie quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.


Dallas Cowboys (2007–2008)

[edit]

On March 5, 2007, Johnson signed a three-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys to back up Tony Romo. Johnson played little in the 2007 flavor. He played in week 17 confronting the Washington Redskins, going seven-for-11 for 79 yards in the 27–6 loss.

During the 2008 flavour, Romo suffered a broken little finger finger on his throwing manus in week 6 confronting the Arizona Cardinals. Johnson started for the Cowboys during the next three weeks until the injury healed. In Johnson’south week vii beginning against the St. Louis Rams, he completed 17 of 34 passes for 234 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. He also had one bollix in the 34–xiv loss.[29]
In week 8, in a 13–9 win confronting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he passed for 122 yards and one touchdown to Roy Williams, and the Cowboys had the lowest total offensive yards in a winning game: 172 yards. In the week 9 game against the New York Giants, he completed v of xi passes for 71 yards and had two passes intercepted. He was replaced by third-string quarterback Brooks Bollinger at the start of the second one-half. After the Cowboys’ goodbye calendar week, Romo returned from the broken finger to reclaim the starting role.

Johnson went 72-53 as a starter and completed over 60% of his passes for xiii[32]

Johnson eclipsed the iii,000-yard passing marker v times. In 1999, he became only the second Washington Redskins quarterback in franchise history to eclipse 4,000 yards.[33]
He had the summit passer rating in the NFC in 2002 and he has earned NFC Offensive Histrion of the Calendar week honors seven times in his career. He has likewise broken almost every passer record at Tampa Bay. To date, Johnson and Marcus Mariota are the only NFL quarterbacks to take thrown touchdown passes to themselves (Mariota doing information technology in the 2018 NFL playoffs).[6]
Johnson accomplished this confronting the Carolina Panthers in 1997, catching his own deflected laissez passer, juking, and running three yards for a touchdown.
