I hope Brady loses every game he plays in.

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

NO back in 1st

TB currently 8 seed 

3 teams are all 3-2.  Should be a great race to the end. The Saints really look to be in trouble with their D and now Thomas having issues on the team and getting suspended. I think Carolina pushes Tampa for the division.

Statement game from the Bucs. They really punched the Packers in the mouth. Suh got in Rodgers head. He was not the same after that pick six. Brady calmly iced the game in the third quarter. Also no penalties. If they can play clean like that they will be very tough to beat. 

 

Also, Bears are in first place at 5-1. Strange season!

Such a weird turn in that game. Packers looked really comfortable. Then the pick six happened and the Packers forgot everything! 

Games can definitely change momentum quickly. Bucs played super great today.

I think the Bucs are just heating up. Brady looked crisp out there with his passes, pinpoint accuracy to his receivers, and some long ball to boot....Keep an eye on the Bucs moving forward...

they have impressed me especially last 2 weeks

Their offense looks really seasoned. I think Brady has figured out what plays work and which ones do not. The defense is really stout. They are a fun team to watch.

Raiders beat KC-Bucs beat the Raiders yesterday. Says something does it not? Bucs have AB coming to join the party in Tampa.

 

Raiders caught KC napping. Bucs were more ready. However, Bucs did look real balanced overall vs both the Packers and Raiders, 2 good teams they beat.

Tom Brady along with Peyton are like 1a and 1b as far GOATs go - throw Montana in there too, I tried to tell some but they wouldn't listen. So far BB is having a tough time, you usually can't win without a great QB. Tommy is winning that division IMO.

Its not a sure thing yet that NO TB hand will be big game

I agree. It's always the player. I said this on the TD thread as well. Coaching only goes so far. The difference between a 7-9 team and a 12-4 team is Brady/Manning.

Yep, Look at what Reich did when he had Luck. He went 10-6 and won a playoff game with an ok roster but Luck made a world of difference. With JB it was 7-9. I think we can go 10-6 with Rivers but our schedule gets tougher after Detroit. 9-7 at worse I see.

Coaching certainly helps as well so let's not excuse Belichick as if he's garbage.

 

He took a Bradyless team with Cassel and led them to 11-5.

 

Patriots biggest issue to me besides losing Brady was several starters opting out at the beginning of the year due to covid.

 

I don't their record would be much different especially since I think Cam best days are behind him.

 

He could just tank for Lawrence but Jets seem dead set on that notion right now.

They really need to spend some draft capital and target a QB. You can't win anything without at least a decent QB and they don't have any on the roster.

BB is a great coach, possibly the GOAT but without a QB that is at least above average to good you aren't winning the SB. Cam isn't Cam of 2015. I would take Rivers over him right now so we at least we have a chance in the playoffs.

Should have kept Jimmy G. They wanted to make Brady happy and Kraft and BB obliged, I guess.

They got another ring out of it BUT they really should have tagged Jimmy even though it would be a ton of money to do so. Once you have identified the QB you don't give him away.

If the Bucs don't play better next week than this week, I suspect they will have a hard time beating the Saints. 

I have them beating Saints but Saints still winning South in end. 

 

It will be  a fight all the way to the end

The Saints do have a lot of fortitude as a team. Tom Brady should actually execute an Arians style offense to beat the Saints, go farther down the field but he is less inclined to lately. I just have this feeling the Saints' D is starting to correct a few mistakes and might just do enough to beat the Bucs again putting them in the driver's seat in the NFC South. Todd Bowles' blitzing style might work against the kinds of Daniel Jones but it is harder to pull off vs Drew Brees.

 

Saints 34 Bucs 31

I think it was a classic trap game for them. Looking ahead to the Saints. 

Looking forward to next Sunday and the debut of AB. The Saints are also playing better so should be a great game. Wonder if Thomas will play.

    • This may be the best football interview I have ever seen.  Must see for Colts, Packers or any other football fan!   Rodgers is the most candid I've seen and he's really funny.      
    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
