    Lol amen, which is why I'm saying this isn't superbowl or bust for the Bucs, if they resign Brady to a long term deal they'll have like a 5 year window. That all pro team isn't going anywhere :headspin:

    I’ve never thought SB or bust for the Buccaneers this season. It’s completely new territory for most of that team

    True but outside that NFCCG where the PI was not called against the Rams, the Saints have not lost a home playoff game. Odds are a little bit in the Saints favor mainly because Lattimore plays Evans very well and he was not playing well earlier in the year.

     

    Plus, unlike vs WFT, it is very very hard to run vs the Saints front and because of that, you get behind the down and distance vs the Saints defense. Then, it becomes an issue of playing the Saints pass rush more often and unlike other years when Gronk and Edelman are on the same page along with his RBs against blitzes, the level of understanding is not the same and the OL of the Bucs vs DL of the Saints is not the same level as the OL protection Brady enjoyed with the Patriots. That is going to be fundamentally the biggest difference that I feel might favor the Saints slightly, their DC Allen blitzing timely and Brady not being good vs the blitz like he was in other years mainly because of the OL level.

     

    Scar, at NE, was a different level OL coach, and the more I see the Bucs OL, I have a greater appreciation of how much that mattered while Brady was at the Patriots.

    They actually somehow lost last year at home to the Vikings lol. I agree with your overall point though. It’s tough to win at the Superdome. We’ll see come Sunday. My money is on the Buccaneers

    I did forget the latest one. When it is divisional rivals, they know everything about each other.

     

    Saints beat the Panthers in 2017 playoffs in wild card round at home playing them 3 times and winning all 3 times.

    That’s true. Big difference in the QB position though. Newton isn’t too good

    I think the Saints defense is under-rated. Evans best friend is lining up against him.

     

    You have the bucs losing at all? I think (for some reason) they have a better shot against the Packers than the saints

    I have Chiefs-Buccaneers SB

    It is possible. 32 times, 2 teams have played each other 3 times including the playoffs, and 20 times a team it has been 3-0 in favor of the team that went 2-0 against them, that is what they said on CBS after the game.

     

    The most recent one I can think of is 2008 Steelers vs Ravens in AFCCG. 

    I can’t see it with Brady and the Buccaneers. That team is way more explosive than the Saints. Both of the Saints wins came when the Buccaneers didn’t have an offensive groove

    Its like Manning in his prime. You have to keep Mahomes off the field. 

    I’ve said this before on here but I’ll say it again. Mahomes is better at this age than both Peyton and Brady. It’s a completely different ballgame going against Mahomes

    I think Browns win tonight and if that happened they would go to Buffalo

    You think the Browns are going to win on the road against the Steelers? They barely won last week at home against the reserve team

    Possibly. We haven’t done well against them, and can’t seem to stop a screen pass. They need to run, run, and run and keep Mahomes off the field. 

    They conquered their demons against the Titans today. There are weird things that happen in football. That being said, I’d be shocked if the Chiefs don’t go to the SB

    It's the way we lost, I just felt like we gave it away. I thought we outplayed them. I hate the season is over. I feel bad for Phil because I thought he played well. I feel bad for our team. Great group of guys. Fun season.

    It’s not the players that gave it away. That’s why I absolutely hate this loss

    Rivers no Turnovers, 309 Yards, 2 TD's. We gave this game away. I haven't been this disappointed since losing the SB in 2009. We had them beat, I am sick right now.

    Good thing I don’t get my hopes up anymore. I’d be devastated right now. Colts should’ve won that game

    I am crazy disappointed, but imho, it’s lunacy to try and put this loss on Rivers. I think he balled out today!

     

    -Reich failure to take 3. 
    -Turay brain fart resulting in 4 more points.

    -Blankenship missed FG

    -Frank’s giving away a time out with a mind boggling bad challenge. 


    Game of inches and at the end of the day, Colts came up short. On to next year!

    Absolutely. Rivers played well enough to win this game. Shouldn’t have to account for coaching being a problem. I haven’t even included that challenge in my posts. My lord that was terrible. What in the good lord’s name was he doing on that?
