Very impressive for Brady to get this team to the champ game in season one. Their defense completely humiliated Brees. What a performance by White. Brady scored on every short field. Hard to believe he will be playing next week to get to his 10th SB. Unreal. I am very happy for Arians and Mike Evans and David. All good guys that deserve this.

I mean Brady had a good regular season (huge improvement from last season), but what exactly has he done in the playoffs so far to get the Bucs to the NFCCG?  He was pretty solid last week against an 7-9, "Here by Default" Washington team.  And tonight, the Bucs defense completely carried them to a win.

Case in point to one of my earlier posts:

 

I mean, sure, let's not mention the defense setting them up at the Saints 3 yard line and at the Saints 20 yard line twice, make it sound like Brady was entirely the reason Tampa won that game.

 

It was borderline state-run TV when he played for the Patriots here.

Brady is trying to pull a 2015 Peyton where Denver's D carried him off and on. I don't see them beating GB at GB but anything is possible with Tom lmao

It helped that Brees threw three interceptions, and that Michael Thomas was held without a catch. The win was more on the defense than Brady. 

 

Aaron Rodgers had  his worst game of the season when he faced the Bucs a few months ago. That was in Tampa, so he'll most likely do better playing at Lambeau.

I just don't see how you make that call when 2 players are diving to the same spot. Of course their heads are going to hit.

 

 

Glad that was a no call 

The defender lowered his head to lead with the crown. I agree it's a good attempt at a tackle and bang bang play. But he choose to lower his helmet to lead with. That ball came out when the helmets collided. Should have been called in my opinion.

That always gives more ammunition for a team, playing a team a second time that they have lost to. We will see how it goes.

 

I promised my family I would spend time with them next Sunday, so I am going to have to choose which conference championship game I watch so that I don't take away about 7-8 hours from them. I might just invest in the late night AFCCG between the young QBs, my daughter has to get to bed for school anyways. :)

He converted over 50% of third and fourth downs for the game which kept all their drives alive. He also threw 2 Tds and rushed for the 3rd. He also scored TDs on every turnover, every short field which is what put the game away. He did quite a bit including audibling into multiple runs all night given the Saints were playing 2 safeties deep.

 

He absolutely roasted the WFT which was the second best pass defense in the leagued.

Just realized both championship games are rematches. Bills lost to Chiefs and Packers lost to Bucs earlier.

 

Only one of them gets to take revenge on home field, the other one would have to win on the road (the Bills). Bills' D is playing much better the last few games, and their main issue will be Kelce. If Mahomes plays, it is a toss up. If Henne plays, Bills win by 10+ on the road.

    • First of all I just have to say I have a strong distaste for Tom Brady but I’d sign him in a heartbeat under a year contract and then draft CJ Stroud or Levis whoever falls to us at number 4. Have them sit behind Brady and truly learn how to be a QB in the NFL. With the remaining picks provide him with some weapons and protection and bolster the defensive side of the ball. 
    • Agreed, but how much of "a better player or two MORE" does a team need at the end of every season?    That's why the teams strive to find the prototypical or modern era franchise QB, so that the QB can make that game winning drive in last minute or a couple of comeback game changing drives needed in playoffs against strong contenders, in addition to strong and consistent QB play throughout regular season. Such QBs deserve to get paid, and Bengals have found that franchise QB in Burrow who has proven so much BEFORE getting paid a lot.    Problem with the QB market is not that the likes of Rodgers, Burrow, Mahomes get paid... The problem is that barely above average QBs such as the likes of Cousins, Goff, Wentz, Jones, Carr, Watson (personal and legal problems), and few others continue to demand elite QB money and drive up the QB market when they don't deserve that kind of contract, while neither proving BEFORE OR AFTER getting that money.    If I'd wanna complain about QBs getting paid huge money that makes the team worse, I'd complain about those Pretenders who would get paid abhorrent, unproven and undeserved pay while these QBs make their team worse by BOTH blocking large part of the cap space and NOT playing to the highest level of QB play their contracts would suggest.    Back to your point, yes, Bengals would lose a key player or more both in offense and defense when Burrow's contract peaks in salary cap space... But he's proven he can compensate that loss, which is not even close to the situation of not even having found our franchise QB yet, and still a better problem than having a QB who pretends to be a franchise QB not being able to win multiple playoff games. 
    • What’s more important a couple extra picks  or carter or Anderson . With carter and Anderson they have a player that can help them now.  There is no guarantee what a further draft looks like.  I doubt Carolina will offer them that many more picks. They could get Oline at 9 I guess but  is  there a tackle that will go that high.
    • Here’s a question for you…    A story surfaced this weekend….  Chicago would like to trade Fields for picks….  Stay at number one, and draft Young as their new QB.    Any thoughts on this?    Are you hearing or reading about this anywhere?    
    • Ok,  thank you.   Appreciate it.
