Let’s hope. He’s irritated me for a long time ! 

Watching this game makes you realize how close the colts are to getting to the big dance. 

Both these old QB look old lol.

I don’t think it’s as bad as you guys are making it sound. This is playoff football and I think Brees and the Saints are playing a little more conservative outside that one trick play. Brady and the Bucs are actually more aggressive, IMO.

Brady's defense has stepped up big for him, again.  They got a pick-6 earlier, and now when the Saints are driving, a Saints WR fumbles and the Bucs pick it up and return it into Saints territory to give Brady and the offense a very short field.

 

It's about to be tied 20-20, and the Bucs defense is 100% responsible for 7 points and about 90% responsible for 7 more.

20-20, fumbling in the NFL in a big playoff game is an easy way to get your walking papers. Just can't do it. Turnovers in this game for the Saints have been costly. 

And called back punt return

Don't forget the INT the Bucs returned all the way to the 3-yard-line.

 

The Saints are shooting themselves in the foot over and over again, and the Bucs defense is taking advantage.

Saints are killing themselves..

Its all or nothing, go take a look at what they have to do to even be able to field a team next year. I posted their situation in a thread.

 

They sold their sole for 1 last chance at a Championship this year.

It does feel like if the Saints don't figure out how to put some distance between them and Tom, Tom is going to figure it out.

Looks like Tom doesn't have to figure out anything.  His defense is doing all of the "figuring it out" for him.

 

He's going to ride a stellar defensive performance into the NFC Championship game.

Of both these QBs, I  give Brady a better chance at Green Bay in the snow than I  do Brees, and with a 2 score lead with just under 5:00 to go, it looks like we'll see Tom get that shot.

As much as i hate Brady you have to be happy for Bruce Arians. He is probably ready to retire and making the move at QB was clearly the right thing.


Peyton over Tebow, Brady over Winston, no brainers to me :)

Now I get to hear from the Boston media tonight how Tom Brady single-handedly caused those four takeaways by the Bucs defense and the Bucs defense setting them up deep in Saints territory every time.

 

They were slobbering over him for beating up on the Falcons twice and the Lions late in the season, been pretty fortunate his competition has been lackluster in the playoffs, against Washington and a Drew Brees who has nothing left in the tank.

Devin White is soooo good man. He does everything well 


That’s the thing. Just getting Peyton to the Broncos wasn’t enough, had to stockpile defensive talents via free agency too.

 

Same thing with Brady, he was going to a team that lost games due to inept QB play but picked in the Top 5-15 consistently and this stockpiled young talent. Good situation for Tom.

Can’t think of a better way for Brees to go out.

It could be worse, it could've been like the 62-7 thumping that the Jags retired Dan Marino with!

Hey, lot of us are rooting for the Bills moving forward, just FYI. Love your team assembled. :) 
 

Think about Tom’s situation - all young QBs in AFC, aging QBs in NFC except NFC West and putrid NFC East once Brees retires, top 2 seed guaranteed in NFC. Smart man, knew exactly what he was doing. Just had to stay healthy and upright.

I agree with your whole post. And yes Drew brees has been done this whole year. It seems every QB has their wall. Except they great Thomas. And bills thought they'd gotten away.. y'all will probably face tampa.. in their house..

Thanks, I was pretty scared of your team in the Wild Card round, I was pulling for the Jaguars in Week 17 since I would have much preferred to play the Dolphins again instead. :D

 

AFC was pretty crazy this year, you could have made a case for any of the AFC playoff teams to make at least the AFCCG, on the NFC, it's pretty much the Packers, probably the Bucs, and then from there it's a steep drop, with the Rams and their banged up QB, the Seahawks who kinda fell apart at the end, a Saints team with a gassed-out Brees, whoever emerged from the NFC East, and then the Bears who can at least say they got a 17th game this season.

 

Don't think we pull it out next week (was hoping for a home AFCCG next week), and Mr. Negative in me says the Bucs and Brady will have no problem winning in Green Bay next week.

Watching Brees and Big Ben this year had vibes of watching Peyton in his final season (and to some extent, the second half of 2014), where you knew they had nothing left and they needed some great effort by the rest of the team to progress in the playoffs.

Brees, Ben, River gone next year? That's crazy...

    • Sorry,  long response.   Much to respond to.   To the Wilson ranking....   sorry, no.    That's NOT the way it works.    Wison may be tied in grade with over 30-something other players,  but at some point,  you have to rank them in order of preference   And Zierlein ranks has him at 64.  He could've been ranked at any of the other spots.   But he wasn't.   He was slotted at 64.   That's how this works.      And while you  can call it "all over the map"  a number of good evaluators have him with a first round grade.   The worst was Kiper with a mid-3rd round grade.   We took Wilson right in the middle of the range of rankings.   Mid-40's.    There isn't an issue with where we took him.   Tabor may have been CB1 for Florida,  but he was not a better NFL prospect.   He tested badly and slipped.   Wilson was the youngest player in the draft.   The size of a safety.   He had better upside and long range potential.  Unfortunately,   he wasn't mature enough and it hasn't worked out for him at any stop.   But he was drafted roughly where he should have been.      Carrie may or may not have been a good solid back-up,  but he was a BIG disappointment in Cleveland.   He was signed to a big deal.   $8 mill per.    That's starter money, not back-up.   Cut after two years.    And no one was interested until late in the process.   Ballard found value in the discount isle.   The gamble regarding Rhodes was this....    what if he didn't work out?    We signed him to be no less than CB2, and CB1 if things went well.    The $$ cost may not have been much.   But now imagine how this forum would look at Ballard if Rhodes was a bust and his play cost us a playoff spot?   The gamble was signing someone on a cheap deal.   People would be screaming that Ballard got what he paid for and why didn't he sign someone better to a bigger deal?   It would've been a lost opportunity to do better.   Again....  I'm not clearing Ballard of blame.   But no one bats 1,000 in this business.   A first rounder is considered by some to be a 50-50 proposition.   On balance, I think Ballard has done well.   Hope you'll note my post from the other day where I disagreed with Greg Rosenthal calling Ballard the best GM when it comes to the draft.   I think that's wrong and I explained why.   We will have a better idea by the end of this season.  Guys like Turay and Lewis from the 18 class,  plus the first four from the 19 class...   RYS, BB,  Parris and Oke.   If those guys come through,  Ballard's drafting will look even better.    And if not, we will see when the winter of 22 comes around.
    • Similar to last year.  Maybe he wants a lot of latitude to sign the kids next year?
    • Phins would do it, but we'd have to throw in our 4th rounder.. With the depth of OT this year that would work, with the depth of WR that would work as well. DE would be another animal..
    • Bridgewater is being looked at as a back up QB, but only if he re-does his contract. Nobody is paying 18 million for Teddy, nor is anyone giving a top 90 pick for him. As for us, we traded our #1 pick last year and struck gold, is there a quality DE that might be traded for the #21 pick? Maybe a team in cap hell, or one needing an extra 1st to move higher in the 1st? Would the bronco's trade Cubb for #21 if they could package both their own #1 and ours to move up to Atlanta's spot for a QB??
