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.

    • Nah, J. Eason is going to pull a Tom Brady and steal the starting job away from Wentz. Wentz will be watching from the bench like Bledsoe did by week 6. 
    • I’m with you,  MIke!   Even being a big admirer of tOSU program.    I also want us to draft another DE as well.    We need to take more swings, take more bites out of the DE apple.     We need to find more pass rush. 
    • I don't completely write them off, but I'm highly skeptical of them, especially when they don't match the tape. And with Jones they don't. In my opinion.  You can find the odd play here and there by pretty much any QB, where makes a play with his feet. Even the least athletic QBs in the league have some base level of athleticism to even reach that level and in perfect of circumstances, when the defense takes a bad angle or whiffs on a tackle you can look mobile. This is not the norm for Jones. Those types of plays are the exception when the pocket collapses.    Agree. Being an athletic QB doesn't guarantee success and being non-athletic doesn't doom you.    He's good enough athlete to play NFL QB. He's not good enough athlete to make plays out of structure and on the move consistently. Which doesn't mean he won't be a good QB... but it means he won't make those types of plays if/when needed.  I don't think we disagree on that. I think he's gifted enough to play well... I don't think he's athletically gifted to be an off-structure playmaker with any sort of consistency in the league. 
    • I don't get this. First, if you're skeptical of the pro day numbers, then just throw out all of this year's testing. I think that's unreasonable. If you want to bump him up a tenth of a second, that still puts him in the same range as those other guys.   Second, watching him play, he has more than adequate movement ability. This has become a meme. He's not Fields or Lance. But even in today's NFL, you don't have to be freakishly athletic to play QB at a high level. He's athletic enough. Another one.    We agree, if I identified Jones as "my guy" in this draft, I wouldn't be moving up to #3 for him. But he's a different kind of prospect than Lance and Fields, and as much as there is to like about those guys, they have question marks of their own. And if they were to struggle in the NFL, it wouldn't be the first time that a tools-y athletic QB prospect fell short of expectations. But I'm not taking issue with Lance or Fields, at all. They should be ranked high this year.   Just pointing out, again, that some of the Mac Jones coverage is unfair. He's being written off as an unathletic, physical dud, and that's nonsense. He has similar or better physical ability as several other guys who have gone top five in recent seasons. Dwayne Haskins and Teddy Bridgewater were physically uninspiring. Mac Jones is a good enough athlete to play NFL QB.   It's fair to say he'll be overdrafted if he goes in the top ten. I'm disagreeing with the idea that he's not gifted enough to play well. 
    • Maybe to #21? With Wentz as our QB, I wonder if Ballard would consider him? .... And Wentz will say "oh boy, here we go again".
