I hope Brady loses every game he plays in.

The Paper Tigers are leading the 4-0 Packers 31-10.

1 - 1 so far good win for Bucs today 

I wonder how the game would have went if McAffrey hadn’t gotten hurt. Let’s face it made it a lot easier on TB defense when he went out.

Bucs will win the South because Tom is Tom and he has weapons. When they play the Saints again, they will win that game and the division.

Was weird he scored the TD and hurt his ankle. It didn’t look like much but after that they lost all their momentum..

I think week 9 or 10 but that game will be a 2 game swing. Bucs will beat them at home IMO.

I have Saints losing tomorrow which will help but ultimately see NO winning South

What will it say about Brady if Cam continues to play like this?

I think it says more about Cam. I really thought he was washed and the Patriots would struggle this year but he looks healthy and able to make plays with his feet.

The Saints losing last night helped the Bucs as now both are 1-1.  I think the Saints are going to be forced to let Hill play more as Brees really looks bad. His arm looks pretty shot. I wonder if Winston gets a chance too.

He might come in on occasion but not take over Brees unless Brees has injury

Solid win again

 

 

Offense is starting to click but man I have been impressed a lot with their defense. Play makers everywhere. Ton of speed and they smack their opponent around too. I thought Driscoll was going to have to be carted off after some of those sacks.

I think it says more about BB and McDaniels.. they are putting Cam in a position to win every week. BB has that D playing very well (only bad game was against Wilson, who has made every D look bad!)

2 of the sharpest defensive and offensive minds in the NFL right now. Then you have the Ravens who abandon the run in a 1 score game vs the Chiefs. Patriots with Brady or Cam would have never done that, especially if that is the way to keep Mahomes at bay. Do what you do well, better. That is what BB and McDaniels try to do.

The Bucs will win their division because the football Gods want them too. It's good for the league.  Regardless of Brady's deteriorating skills and lack of vertical passing ability he will Dink & Dunk as opposing defenses will play soft like they did when he played for Patriots.  It will be much of the same like it was in beantown and if necessary the zebras will get involved. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if the Super Bowl is Belichek @ Bucs.

Lol, Cam is probably my favorite player and was hoping Colts would sign him. But Belichick  got him. :yuk: But kinda rooting for him, lol. Josh McDaniels job is easier as he now can expand his playbook with a stronger arm & athletic QB.

And I'm now also rooting against bucs, a team that it will be rigged for. Should just go to vegas for couple months and bet on Pat's & Bucs.

The Bucs have been the opposite of Dink and Dunk. Arians offense is a down the field, air it out and Brady has been throwing dimes the last couple of weeks. Defenses can't play soft. This isn't the Patriots offense. The receivers he has are superb and get down the field. They also have a much better D than I knew. They are fast and nasty. They certainly have a chance to go far based on the talent they have. They are starting to gel. They need to keep getting more in sync. 

 

The Patriots do look better than I thought they would with Cam but they are not better than the Chiefs, Ravens, Steelers and possibly the Bills/Titans. I don't see them coming out of the AFC. Probably a wild card with an early exit.

Yes the bucs receivers get down field but throwing deep is not what brady does well. On the most important possessions he most likely dink,dunk, shallow crosser, pass interference,etc.. and opposing defenses will allow that.

 

Yes, bucs defense looked good. They forced breeze 3 or 4 straight 3 and outs.

 

Cam is a upgrade at this point over brady. And yes, there are AFC teams that are better than the Pat's BUT that has also been true before without it stopping them.

Brady seems to be doing pretty well at the deep ball probably because he has pro bowl level receivers which he didn't have in New England except for when he had Moss. It seems to me that Arians is incorporating more Patriot-like plays for Brady to go with the long balls. It will be interesting to see how the offense continues evolve.  I agree about the defense - they look very good. I had no idea they had such great playmakers especially their LBs.

 

Cam has been interesting in NE. I really thought he would fall flat but he seems to be taking the coaching well. He still seems pretty inaccurate to me at times. I keep reading that people feel he is a better fit this year than Brady would have been yet Brady was 3-0 last year and all 3 wins were blow outs. I think after this week the Patriots will be 2-2 as the Chiefs look like the class of the AFC again.

Nah not yet but will credit where credit is due good job today bucs

They are a strange team, aren't they?  Terrible first half, blistering second half. If they can actually put two good halves together than maybe 90 points?  LOL.

Very strange because up until yesterday they've been starting out great and fizzling. Which is something bradys been dealing with for awhile now it seems. but yesterday was a vintage brady comeback. Chargers could've knelt the ball and received the ball in the 2nd half. nope lets try to run with 47 secs left at our own 9. and fumbled -_- 24-7 and much better than 24-14. I thought that was the nail in the coffin

That's the Brady factor. Try and score any chance possible.

Yeah. That fumble was a huge swing. It was a fascinating game. The Chargers can really hang with anyone. I really don't know how Brady keeps doing it. I am a few years older than him and I am exhausted a lot of the time and I don't play football. haha

Heck I'm almost 30 years old.. I remember my parents cheering for Tom brady when I didn't even care about football. I would come in from playing outside and cheer against him haha.

    • I get they're from one of the biggest TV markets in the country, but you knew that game was going to be a non-competitive snoozefest before it even started. I generally watch every Sunday Night game available, but I can tell you that both Sunday Night games that I largely tuned out of involved Packers-Bears contests (I wanna say there was a game in 2013 or 2014 where the Packers dropped 50+ on the Bears on Sunday Night and you could feel it was going to happen before the game even started).
    • I apologize for today guys. At least you whipped them the first time you played them in Tennessee but lost at home. I have a feeling the Titans are going to whip us when we see them just after Christmas.
    • Question for you and those who LOL with your post. How long have you been following football to ask a juvenile question? Is that even a question to ponder?   I'f I go through the list of South Florida talent, we would need to start a separate website, yes website never mind thread.   Coaches along: Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wanstedt, Pagano, just to name a few. Lets not start with players. On this current team, players not named Marlon Mack or TY Hilton, Anthony Walker, Jacoby Brissett, Al Qudin Muhammad, Xavier Rhodes (Norland High School is less than 20 mins away).   I actually take offense to your question. But to no avail, here is your answer: The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004), most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (10, from 2003 to 2004), most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004), and most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004). As of the 2015 NFL season, UM has 45 players on NFL rosters, including players on NFL Practice Squads and Injured Reserves and not including current Free Agents, which is the most out of any NCAA program in the nation. As of the 2016 NFL Draft, Miami now has had at least one NFL draft pick in every draft since 1975, each of the last 42 NFL drafts, one of the longest streaks among FBS programs. The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season.During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored. From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL from (2002-2006), including 17 1st round picks. The Hurricanes have had at least one former player make the Pro Bowl every season since 1985, 31 years in a row.
    • The game wasn't exactly a shock due to the missing players, but some of the themes were not what I expected, how about you guys?    Reason's the game was lost and what's next:  --------------------------------- 1. Rock Ya Sin.  I think Rock is starting to look more like a Draft miss than hit.  They often refer to his wrestling career, and that is never good because it usually comes after a Defensive Hold or Interference.  He really put us in a bind with his first penalty, and drove a stake in our heart when we had them stopped but they got the ball back for a later TD, and arguments could be made it costs us 14 points because it so deflated our team we went into a tailspin and gave up that ridiculous 4th down play setting up the 5th TD.     2. Loss of poise.  I saw several things, but that horrendous punching and disqualification was so deflating to the teams loss of poise in performance that I wouldn't be disappointed to learn they cut him from the team, though I doubt they have the b*lls.  There should be a near zero tolerance for a role player special teamer to lose his cool that egregiously and cost the team at such a critical time.     3. Loss of AC/Poor O-Line Depth may be a fatal blow to any post season success.  We have a long long history of failure without our most important lineman.  Even though he isn't what he once was (and it has been clear to me he's playing hurt as much as simple decline has kicked in) the drop off is so dire after him that I think only with significant shuffling can we keep Rivers upright and healthy and have any chance to run an offense not always in crises.  With a poor LT, Rivers one glaring weakness, immobility is amplified 10X.  I will say his quick release saved as many sacks as Mahommes could have scrambled out of, but the difference is he can't possibly complete meaningful attacks with so little time or free space to launch it to an open receiver.  Frankly his performance under that pressure was the most impressive performance I have seen from him all year.  But heroic sack saving isn't effective offense.  This lack o-line  depth has been something MANY here have been pointing not only all season and pre season, but literally going back to last season as well.  And we had MUCH better depth last year than this.  It was my #1 concern entering the season.  It was obvious.  A brilliant GM keeps making this same error.  He admitted his failure to secure a quality O-Line his first year (after many had begged the previous GM to do the same, and I believe that is truly what cost him his job, or at least deserved to).     Things that were hopeful: ------------------------------ 1.   Hines has proven to be a warrior.  He's our most important and reliable offensive weapon, much like the pass catching RBs of River's SD teams.  We should never see another game without him being a key contributor, no different than TN using their RB to do the same.   Everyone knew Hines was the only thing working, but he kept working nonetheless.  Reich needs to stop abandoning our key offensive weapon.  I even loved when they sent him deep.  I think HE could be used much like TY used to be, leading to...   2. TY Hilton FINALLY utilized by Reich and Rivers.  TY still has tremendous value.  We were reminded of that finally.  He still has moves, he can still contribute.  Sure, he's not 24 years old anymore, but he is likely our second best weapon after Hines still.  But Rivers simply has no chemistry with him.  All game he was forcing throws to Pascal, who I like, but they had Pascal 100% locked down.  The few catches he made were 50-50 balls.     3.  We saw evidence that our TE's are capable.  Why don't we use them, and use them often?  A three headed monster that should be dominating.  I think for us to have success down the stretch, in addition to using Hilton and Hines, our 3 capable TE's need to be all over the place on short to medium routes using their size and capable hands.  We saw late (too late sadly) that they were playing.  It was almost like they weren't through 3 quarters.  Sure, TN had backed up coverage, but dang, those guys have skills and can be hit quickly.     4. Brissett has been used well in short yardage.  I am glad they are building on this.  Even his relative slowness, he looks like a lightning bolt compared to Rivers.  I do think they need to show some short yardage passing so they keep defenses honest helping his future sneaks.     5. Pinter was serviceable compared to LT options.  I hope our center comes back and finishes the season, but Pinter at least showed a little depth at G/C.     What to do in the future now that winning the division is reasonably out of reach; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. The line woes will continue to be a problem.  Depth is simply unacceptable.  I think if AC is lost for the season that we need to rethink positions, such as whether Smith could move to LT and perhaps use Pinter at RT?  I know he has "short arms" for Pro T play, but he has to be better than the other options.  I think they should strongly alter our game plans to account for lesser line e play.  Rivers didn't have time to let route develop, and with no mobility, they are going to have to improve our tepid screen play and conduct more short routes for multiple TE's in 2 TE sets.  Rivers has to be able to get the ball out quick.  I do think the play calling the past 4 weeks had improved, but something happened this game and we were just too limited until late in the game when they were hitting TEs and TY.   More please.     2. Our D should get back in line with the return of the Covid players.  I like the second half adjustments the D is making but why aren't we making these adjustments in the first half.  35 points is too much and the penalties are devastating.  Is it time to play Carrie instead of Ya Sin?  I think they should seriously consider demoting him for back ups.  He's just too much of a liability.  Perhaps if he came in off the bench we could get off the field more often in the first half.     What did you all think? 
    • I don’t mean to offend, but.....   The population of Buffalo is roughly 255,000.   The population of Chicago is roughly 2.66 million.   Our nation’s third largest city.  Plus, they were playing Green Bay, a team that historically gets good TV ratings even though it is much smaller than Buffalo.  It’s the smallest city to have a major sports franchise.  TV ratings are, in part,  why Indianapolis doesn’t get many National games unless they have someone like Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck.    It’s not just about the win-loss records.
