Tampa Tuesday: 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…


Tampa Bay Tuesday: Brady & the Bucs head to NFC Divisional round

January 12, 2021

One down, three to go. Tom Brady is now three wins away from a seventh Super Bowl ring after the Buccaneers took care of a pesky Washington Football Team 31-23 on Saturday night in the NFC Wild Card playoff game. Yes, I know he doesn’t play here anymore. If you can’t put your Patriots pj’s away for a little while and root for the single greatest athlete in our lifetime…

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…


Tampa Bay Tuesday: Brady and the Bucs roll over Detroit, clinch 1st playoff berth since 2007

December 29, 2020

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? If you’re like me and you still need something to root for this football season because you can’t stand the thought of getting invested in the Celtics or Bruins just yet, thank god for the GOAT. Tom Brady had arguably his best game in two or three years the day after Christmas as he and the Buccaneers thumped the Lions 47-7. Tampa Bay (10-5)…


Tampa Bay Tuesday: Brady leads Bucs back for thrilling win over Atlanta

December 22, 2020

Down 17 points to the Atlanta Falcons at halftime and then again late in the third quarter on Sunday, Tom Brady did what Tom Brady does. The Bucs stormed back to tie the game with 11 minutes left, then, Brady hit Antonio Brown for an eventual 46-yard game-winning touchdown to steal a 31-27 victory from the jaws of defeat. It was deja vu for poor Matt Ryan, but more importantly…


Tampa Bay Tuesday: Bucs win ugly against Vikings, move to 8-5

December 15, 2020

If you thought Bruce Arians would have his team ready to come out of the gate fast following a bye last week, what have you been watching? As I suspected, the Bucs looked flat early against the Vikings on Sunday, going three-and-out on the first two offensive possessions of the game. However, thanks to four missed field goals, a missed extra point and downright putrid play from Kirk Cousins late…

Tampa Bay Tuesday: Bucs’ ship is sinking after second straight loss

December 1, 2020

(Jason Behnken/AP) The Bucs are in trouble. There’s no way avoiding that fact after Tampa Bay lost 27-24 to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The loss dropped the Buccaneers to 7-5 on a weekend where the Saints, Packers and Seahawks all made cases to be considered the best team in the NFC as we head into December. This was the second loss in a row for Bruce Arians, Brady…


Tampa Bay Tuesday: Primetime lights too bright again for Brady and the Bucs

November 24, 2020

AP Photo/Mark LoMoglio This is a nightmare scenario for Patriots fans who wanted the team to at least be “meh” this season while also watching Tom Brady succeed in Tampa. Unfortunately, the Pats are worse than “meh” and with an ugly 27-24 home loss on Monday Night Football against the Rams, it’s see to wonder if Brady might be one-and-done in the playoffs for the second straight season. Luckily for…


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…
