Buccaneers: Brady faces the ultimate revenge game this weekend against the Saints

January 16, 2021

Tom Brady does not lose to the same team in the same season often. In fact, prior to losing twice to the Saints this season, Brady has only lost to the same twice in a season six times in his illustrious career. Here’s the list. 2005: Broncos 2006: Colts 2010: N.Y Jets 2011: N.Y Giants 2012: Ravens 2015: Broncos You are probably surprised that it happened more often than you…


Buccaneers: Bucs finish 11-5, head to Washington on Wild Card Weekend

January 5, 2021

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images Well, we’re here. Finally. For the past four months, we’ve rode the roller coaster that has been the 2020 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season. Now, with a 44-27 win over Atlanta on Sunday, the Bucs have finished 11-5 and will head to Washington on Wild Card Weekend (I refuse to call it Super Wild Card Weekend). We’ve finally made it to the finish line, and now…


Inconsistency has been a hallmark of both the Patriots and Buccaneers this season

November 24, 2020

Image courtesy of the New York Post Both the Patriots and Buccaneers lost this weekend and once again, it was because of inconsistent effort on the part of both teams. If you root or follow the two franchises, that seems to be a central theme in this weird 2020 season. The Patriots have mastered the art of losing close games. New England is currently 4-6 but could very easily be…


Buccaneers: The Bucs weaknesses at offensive line and in the secondary showed up against the Saints

November 12, 2020

Image courtesy of MARK LOMOGLIO/ASSOCIATED PRESS The Buccaneers got destroyed 38-3 by the Saints on Sunday Night Football. It was a loss that no one saw coming, partly because no one could foresee the Buccaneers offensive line and defense playing as poorly as they did. New Orleans dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball especially on defense, sacking Tom Brady three times. The pressure forced Brady…


X’s and O’s: The Patriots conceptual influence on the Buccaneers offense is obvious

October 11, 2020

Photo courtesy of MIKE EHRMANN, GETTY IMAGES When Tom Brady signed with the Buccaneers in March, we wondered how he would fit in the Buccaneers offense. Bruce Arians offense is predicated on running the football out of 11 and 12 personnel and throwing the ball down field in the intermediate and vertical passing game. People questioned whether or not Brady still had the arm strength necessary to play Tampa’s offense….


Tampa Bay Tuesday: Brady carries the Bucs to a come from behind victory and proves he still has it

October 6, 2020

(AP Photo/Jason Behnken) If you had any doubts as to whether or not Tom Brady still “has it” you got a resounding answer on Sunday.  YES! Brady completed 30 of 46 passes for 369 yards and 5 touchdown passes and in the process proved a lot of people wrong including yours truly. I have been questioning Brady’s arm strength for the past three years now. I don’t think his arm…


Tompa Bay: Brady and the Buccaneers prove that they have a long way to go

September 14, 2020

Butch Dill/AP The new look Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to the New Orleans Saints 34-23 in Tom Brady’s debut as the team’s starting quarterback.
