Tampa Bay Tuesday: Brady and the Bucs beat Carolina 46-23, move to 7-3

November 17, 2020

AP Photo Another week, another win that wasn’t pretty for Brady and the Bucs. As we’ve all learned over the years though, they don’t ask how, just how many. Right now, Brady and his Buccaneers are a seven-win team and just barely behind Green Bay (7-2) and New Orleans (7-2) for the top spot in the NFC playoff standings. “It’s not a game of perfect,” Brady said following the win….


Tampa Bay Tuesday: Brady and the Bucs survive a scare from the Giants

November 3, 2020

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Tom 6, Bill 2. It’s obviously not that simple, but as it stands after Monday night’s 25-23 win for the Buccaneers, Brady is winning the first round of the “was it the coach or quarterback?” argument that will last for decades. Brady technically needed a non-pass interference call to get to 6-2 on the year, but the Bucs are now second in the NFC, just behind…

The Bucs moved to 5-2 with a dominant 45-20 win and it appears like things are truly starting to click this time. Penalties have been down, the…

The roller coaster that is the 2020 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season was back up on Sunday. After reaching arguably its lowest point of the season following an ugly Thursday night loss to the Bears, the Bucs continued their up-and-down year with an impressive 38-10 win over the previously unbeaten Packers.

September 29, 2020

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports It still doesn’t look right, but Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are 2-1. Brady went in to what is usually a house of horrors for him and had a good day to help get the Bucs a 28-10 win over the Broncos. We all know how it’s usually looked when he went to Denver in his career, so this was probably a nice little mental hurdle…

1. First, Happy Fathers Day to all the dad’s out there. Moms are the glue that keeps a household together. Dads are the foundation. 2.

Patriots: Patriots trade Rob Gronkowski and a seventh round pick to the Buccaneers for a 4th round pick

April 21, 2020

In a completely unexpected trade this afternoon, former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski ended his retirement and was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to reunite with Tom Brady. Bill Belichick sent Gronkowski and a seventh round pick to Tampa Bay for a fourth round pick. Pick #117 to be exact. The deal was surprising, especially when you consider that Gronkowski was pretty adamant last spring that he was done….


Patriots: I have officially done a 180 on Rob Gronkowski coming back in 2019.

July 11, 2019

When Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement on March 24th, I felt at the time that he was done. I never thought he would play again. The injuries had taken their toll and at the age of 29, Gronkowski decided to walk away while he can. Since Gronkowski announced his retirement however, there has been growing speculation that he would return to the Patriots at some point this season. Despite losing…
