I hope Brady loses every game he plays in.

I'm a good sport

It  was a good thread all season. The Bucs certainly did not seem SB bound until the playoffs began. Brady really elevated them and they had the belief to win.

Gets to the Super Bowl facing a 7-9 division winner, rides his defense to beat the Saints and a Drew Brees with a shot arm, throws three interceptions and beats a Packers team who made awful coaching decisions at the end of both halves.

 

Sounds pretty familiar to most of his playoff runs with the Patriots.

The mighty Bills defense and Aaron Rodgers at home both now at the bottom of the sea.

The other team gets to make plays too.

Made this prediction last year and now I'm setting my sights on a new team. 

 

The Buccaneers made several high profile moves this offseason but I am not buying the hype.

 

Brady is on the decline rapidly and was the weak link on NE last year and Gronk hasn't played in over a year.

 

The Patriots even with Stidham will win the East at 10-6.

 

I could see TB finishing 7-9 and be a massive disappointment.

Never ever be so adamant lol

Ummmmmmm.......but.....he won. U could say that if he won  one or 2 l. But 7...come on man. I use to hate Brady and always find reasons to diminish what he did. U can say what every want, but the greatest qb of all time is Tom Brady. One thing that he proved most of all is that he makes everyone around him better.There, I said it. God that was painful yet enlightening at the same lol.

He really does get the best out of the entire team. When he's the QB, everyone is held accountable. Absolutely unreal.

Its not even close between him and Manning

Championships wise I agree (it is now 7-2). The ability to make his teammates better and play the position it is close though. I don't see much difference there. Keep in mind Manning still has more League MVP's (5-3). That award basically goes to the guy that is the most important player to his team to help them win. I will say this Manning is clearly the 2nd best QB over the last 2 decades, it isn't Rodgers or Mahomes and that is not only by eye test but Manning has more SB wins and League MVP's then either.

I'm pretty sure Brady has stuck around to try to bury Manning in everything.

Because even Mannings 5 MVPs are looked at in the same light when Brady has 5 freaking superbowl MVPs...  

 

Now Brady matched Manning being the only QB's to win with two teams. What else do you need Tom. oh... him and Gronk want Manning and Marvs record before he hangs it up..

Brady is the only QB to win in both conferences. He also is the only only to do it his first season which is unbelievable given the no off-season this year.

I've done what I think is some interesting research. And it could be meaningless and inconsequential but none the less based on history I found it peculiar. In 2019 the Bucs were the most penalized team in the nfl. In 2020 they were the 4th fewest penalized team. Pretty much same coaching staff and players just somehow didn't commit a plethora of penalties this year as in 2019. And it even gets better. During their 4 game win streak at the end of the season and the 4 post season games the Bucs were penalized 33 times for 257 while their opponents got hit 45 times for 513, that I think is astounding. Maybe that's what we can call Brady magic. I know the football purest on here will ridicule and  belittle these stats but it is a part of the game(unfortunately.)

I applaud and appreciate those of you who are realistic about this whole situation. When Manning went to Denver, most of you were instantly Broncos fans. I never said anything was wrong with that, and I can totally relate with Brady having gone to Tampa and accomplishing what he did this year. I'll always be a Patriots fan, but once they were clearly out of contention, I was rooting for Brady all the way (and Gronk as well). 

 

Whether people like it or not, Brady IMMEDIATELY brought a winning aura to a franchise that has traditionally been known as a perennial loser. He is not the most physically gifted QB of all time. Not the best arm, or legs, or any of that. The guy just wins. As a Patriots fan it's somewhat bittersweet, but I can't root against a guy who brought two decades of happiness to us after four decades of frustration and futility. 

 

I don't really post here anymore, but I was curious to see what the general take was on Tampa's SB victory. There is a mutual admiration thing between Tom and Peyton, and I think I share the same with a lot of you, as fans. Best of luck to the Colts moving forward, I don't think the Patriots will be a threat in the AFC for at least a couple more years, LOL... 

 

Cheers.

    • @chad72 one other thing I'd strongly recommend considering, is having a lottery for the Colts (instead of first come first serve). I can't remember how we did it, but I know we gave everyone a chance. We did have several fans from other teams participating, and we made exceptions for them (since no one else had strong feelings about the teams they wanted). So for us, NFLFan would have the option for MN, some of the Charger fans could pick LAC, etc..       
    • I'd love to see EJ emerge. He's definitely got the measurables. I just have tempered my expectations knowing he's a small school dice roll. Thought we'd see him get some time last year, but instead still saw small bits of the other depth guys.   there's some decent FAs that IMO would be an upgrade, and wouldn't cost a bunch. If we could pick up a guy from a cap squeezed team like Jaylon Brown for like 8Mish a year, I think he'd be perfect for our scheme and a 3 down guy. An aging vet like Perryman or KJ Wright might work out too on a modest short term deal. Perryman might be just a 2 down guy, but his coverage was not bad at all last year.  We're in a 4-2-5 set 60+% of the time already. We've never used the SAM a lot even with both Walker and Oke. In 2019, it was Walker at MIKE on 1st and 2nd (and short yardage), Oke at MIKE on 3rd (and obvious passing downs), and then Oke sometimes at SAM vs teams that ran the edge a lot or obvious run downs. Last year Oke started eating into Walker's 2nd down snaps, and we simply played lite more.    Purely my opinion, but you don't want to see Adams or Franklin taking MIKE snaps unless it's an emergency. And definitely not Glasgow. And keep in mind that EJ is still pretty thin. Oke is undersized already at MIKE. EJ is taller than Oke, but 10lbs lighter. Perhaps EJ put on some good weight, but IMO, his lack of power/strength is likely a factor keeping him off the field. He's probably more suited for WILL than MIKE to be honest. If he can pack 15-20lbs of good weight on, and keep his twitch, he could make for a very nice MIKE. It'll be interesting to see if he's made progress in the offesason. Walker was the QB of the D in 2019, and it was him in 2019 and 2020 that filled in at WILL when Leonard was out. That was a little surprising to me as Oke was "billed" as faster and rangier... Peculiar...   Anyway, his asking price is not what concerns me. He's not going to command a lot in this market, and he's not ranked in the top 200 FAs (PFF) either. What my gut tells me is he'd rather play in 3-4 where IMO he'd be much more productive, and would fit his skill sets better. Better fit for him, and probably more lucrative long term. He also can't be happy with Oke eating into his snaps, especially when Oke isn't playing well. Anyway, I really don't want to see Oke playing early downs. He got tore up early downs at MIKE when Leonard was out. If he's our 3 down guy, I can see teams running right at him.
    • Watt is not a good scheme fit. Period. Especially not at that price point and having played his entire career in basically the same scheme. I don't care what anyone says but Houston would be a really logical signing. You don't need him to be Superman with Buckner doing 3 tech.  If worse comes to worst with this cap squeeze, you could get Houston on a one year rental for a discount. He's already cleared almost $100M over his career and he was solid in 2020. There is no way I chase Watt in FA for a premium coming out of a 3-4 scheme. Green Bay is a much better fit for him. 
    • Jabril Cox would be a nice upgrade from Walker and Oke.  Especially since we play the 4-2-5 60% of the time.  He can cover and blitz, two things that Oke and Walker can't do.
    • The thing with this is the best teams don't usually have a lot to spend on free agents.  Its rare for a team as good as the colts to have as much money as they did the last few years.   We also have like one playoff win in 6 years now while having all that free cap space
