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...

    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
    • I am a little confused?  So you are advocating a less talented edge at 21 than more talented OT?  Or am I just reading this incorrectly?  Because I believe the difference in OT quality and Edge quality at 21 clearly favors the OT.
    • I actually like the idea of trading back into the top of the 2nd and at least getting a 3rd rd pick that would not be a compensatory pick.  IF we wanted to move Q to LT Meinerz would be an ideal choice to pull it off.  That said picking at the top of the 2nd could still have Eichenberg and Little still available to mention a few LT’s.  I would rather go that route still taking a LT then take WR or CB with our 2nd and we have a nice 3rd rd pick to boot.  Then we could move up higher in the 2nd if we want as well.
    • I think Schefter does a reasonably good job of presenting his opinions as just opinion, and he presents rumors and uncertain information accordingly as well. Lots of 'I think,' 'I'm hearing,' 'I've been told,' 'the feeling is,' etc...    Here, he said: "It will be Mac Jones." Came across different to me. Then he kind of couched it a few days later, making me think maybe there was room for things to change, he didn't mean for it to sound as definitive as it did, whatever.   I think there was plenty of room for things to change. The Justin Fields epilepsy news is one thing; whether teams knew about that before the last few days is unknown, but they know now. If the Niners were on the fence prior to having that information, that could push their decision in one direction or the other.   Also, it's very possible that they moved up knowing they'd have their pick of whatever three QBs are still there at #2. Maybe they already knew the Jets were going with Wilson, but either way, going up to #3 gave them the peace of mind to know that they could get whichever guy they like out of the Fields, Lance and Jones. Maybe they had a favorite already, but I doubt they had their minds made up one way or the other. They just knew they wanted a QB, and #3 was as high as they could get.
