I hope Brady loses every game he plays in.

Nice consolation so far for the Colts losing today.

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.

    • I think our defense needs to be better for  sure. But if small sacrifices are needed because of the cap I would rather those be on defense.  I would actually say Hines is a star. 
    • Fair enough. I just think if they're planning to make big changes, they're probably looking at changing the system and schemes. Nothing against Sirianni at all. 
    • You raise good points.   I think the Colts had everything to win a SB this year. They believed that, and from everything we've seen in the playoffs, I agree with them. Now, even if they won a SB this year, I dont think it's a stretch to say that it would have been a team that won while not being the best version of the offense that it could be (I think this version of the offense is pretty condensed to match the QB's ability). NEXT YEAR, the big unknown with Rivers is that he a QB who is a year older, with some injury issues. It's a risk. I'm sure the team has run its scenario analysis and will come up with the best solution.   If the goal next season is a SB at all costs i.e. all chips in the pot, then I don't think it gets better than Rivers. I like Stafford and I drool at the prospect of him with Frank Reich but I think the deal with him is high ceiling but lower floor than Rivers. With Rivers, I think his ceiling is probably what we saw this season, maybe a pinch higher, but as long as he is healthy, i think this is also close to his floor.  A rookie QB could come in and have a higher ceiling than Rivers, but once again, the floor would be in the basement I imagine because you just can never tell. Eason? Same as a rookie I think.   The goal from day 1 should always be finding a future QB. Ballard has always said that. At least since Luck walked. It's always forefront in their mind, he has done nothing to make me think otherwise.
    • Not trying to pi$$ on him just pointing out what the facts showed. And that’s that against the better teams when he had to throw it more than we ran it we were a losing team.  So that tells me that when he HAD to do it (or he felt he HAD to) because the defense stacked the box he couldn’t do it.  So my point is that he & we (the Colts) need to recognize his limitations if he’s to be brought back.   He has the mind to be the perfect game manager. He can’t be the superstar QB anymore against the better teams.  If he takes the approach Peyton took in his final run with the Broncos (Rivers isn’t that cooked but he may as well have been against the better teams) then we can beat the better teams and make a deeper playoff run.  We actually could’ve done it this year if Rivers became more of a full time game manager against the better teams.     Following the game manger blueprint we win the Jags, Steelers, & Ravens games & we’re 13-3 or 14-2 and the #2 seed.  And judging from what I’ve seen this year, that blueprint would be working well in these playoffs. If they do bring Rivers back and expect him to carry the team vs better competition then he needs a Sure Fire #1 receiver.  It’ll give Rivers a security blanket and it’ll open up others off of him.  Should we trade for OBJ if we bring back Rivers?  If we thought Pittman & Campbell looked good on those crossers, imagine ODB?  Those could be house calls with OBJ. 
    • A little more to the job than that even if he doesn't call plays
