“Who Are We Going To Play Against In The Super Bowl?”

April 12th, 2020

We’re closing in on 100 days from the start of training camp and Joe is fired up. Screw the negative thinking.

Father Dungy is another guy feeling the positive vibes, so he explained on NBC Sports.

Dungy sat down with Mike Tirico and talked Tom Brady and the Bucs late last week.

The Hall of Fame head coach said he feels Bucs fans in Tampa totally fired up and hopeful about having a football season.

“There is so much energy and excitement here,” Dungy said of his hometown Tampa. “Tom Brady has been in the playoffs every year that he’s been healthy. The feeling is ‘we’re going’ [to the playoffs]. It’s just, ‘Who are we playing against in the Super Bowl?’”

Dungy said he believes the presence of Tom Moore and Bruce Arians were critical for Brady after he studied how they’ve worked with veterans like Peyton Manning and Carson Palmer.

“[Arians and Moore are] what has Tom Brady kind of comfortable in this situation,” Dungy said.

“Tom is saying, ‘This is perfect for me, I’ve got wide good receivers and they’ve got a dynamic offense,’” Dungy said. “All they kind of need is that general to put it together. I can see where he’d be excited about this.”

Joe liked the “general” comment from Dungy. It helps illustrate how lost offseason face-to-face time with teammates will put extra pressure on Brady to command the club and further change the culture in a hurry — if the Bucs plan to be in the Super Bowl.

Dungy went on to explain it’s a big mental transition for him to start rooting for Brady after all those years of the Patriots being his biggest rival while he was leading the Colts.

    That’s right Buc fans. Get freakin’ excited!

    16-DASH-0, and a Lombardi!
    (and no, I haven’t started drinking…..YET!)

  2. PSL Bob Says:

    Excitement is through the roof. Just hope we’re able to have some semblance of a season. Players won’t get the conditioning and training they normally would, but every team is in the same situation. Let’s get it on!

  3. DannyDimes Says:

    Stop this nonsense of training camp and a NFL SEASON this year, this is crazy, I guess you have to do it for business (Joe doesn’t have to do anything for business. Don’t be ridiculous. Joe would bet money there is professional football this season. Follow the money.–Joe) but we all know there will be no NFL Season this year and no sports at all until 2021, Brady will never take a snap w the Bucs and will retire and move to LA to pursue business options, In OTHERS NEWS people are dying in record numbers, there is no cure and we are all on house arrest, but these morons talk football nonstop like there will be a NFL Season this year, lmao very funny

    Says the moron who is on a football website

    Your rants are growing weary but that’s on us for not simply scrolling past.
    As Geno I think pointed out yesterday…I saw the same information as he did…an expert virologist who has worked in the field for a couple of decades believes there will be a vaccine by September. She is the expert…I am not..nor are you.

    Nobody truly KNOWS. Testing and vaccine research is now moving at warp speed. I prefer to remain positive.

    I do agree that football takes a back seat to the suffering and fear. But we need some distractions at this point. I’ll let the Covid experts do the speculating and research…I’m just going to focus on the incredible heroism of so very many people! I’ve not seen heroism at this level since the Firemen raced into collapsing buildings during 9/11.

    I’m no fan of the typical Yankee fan but I LOVE New Yorkers and have mad respect for their courage and resiliency.

    You’ll see where you place your attention. Danny Dimes is a total waste of attention…the heroes in our first response and medical systems are where I place my attention. I take great strength and courage from these heroes!

    And yes we need and deserve the diversion of JBF.


  6. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Danny Dimes: the sky is falling. We’re all gonna die!!!!!

    Roger Goodell: there will be NFL football this year.

    Someone is talking out their arse. Wonder who that would be?

  7. neal Says:

    @ DannyDimes You again? i don’t know if you saw, but there is some good advice going around. You should take it “go do something productive on this Easter like spent it w your family or just give your fingers a break from typing on this post every day like a loser.”

  8. Soggy Says:

    I just watched a interview with a owner of a basketball team and he said he thinks there will be sports this year but probably only on TV no fans in stadiums. Happy Easter Buc fans

  9. bucsfaninoregon Says:

    St. Pete, OK, let’s pretend you have an insight into vaccine development better than any of the President’s MEDICAL team and they develop an effective vaccine by September. Now, how do they deliver these tests to the medical/police force, coaches, players, media contributors, and lastly the fans? Assuming the tooth fairy “magically” provides millions of tests by mid-summer and they drop them out of the sky and everyone picks on up and self-inoculate it would take two weeks to do so. That’s October. Then camps (days or weeks?), pre-season games??, and then the start of the season. Did the tooth fairy squeeze all that activity into September and we start the season on Oct.1? And, if there is a vaccine but no tooth fairy dropping vaccine kits how long would this take in a real world?
    I’m not happy about this and I am not trying to troll fellow Buc fans, but I think anyone sincerely expects a normal NFL season this year is delusional. We need to draft for the 2021 season not 2020.

    If the Bucs go to the Super Bowl this season….

    Will Ndog watch it?

    Grocery store workers & that poor sucker at the fast food line that takes all the cards and money for min wage.

  12. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Yes! THANKS for bringing them up. You are 100% correct..they too are brave souls. I thank them whenever I check out and on a few occasions have slipped them a tip which really freaks out checkout clerks in the grocery.

    I try and shock the pizza delivery guys as well. I add the tip on the phone…standard 20% and then give them an envelop at the house as well. They say you’ve already given the tip but I tell them this is a bonus for facing the danger.

    This is NOT about me…no pat on the back for me…I am blessed, It’s more of a suggestion for anybody who is blessed. Thank these people verbally at minimum and if you can spare it show them some financial love.

  13. Defense Rules Says:

    “Joe is fired up. Screw the negative thinking.” B-I-N-G-O !!!

  14. Ndog Says:

    Of course I will but again it’s win the Superbowl or bust. That is the only acceptable outcome.

  15. gofortheface30 Says:

    Dannydimes – hmmm. Reference to Giants quarterback, Giants fan trolling a Bucs site (maybe jealous that we have Brady). Maybe lives in New York, and thinks the whole world should revolve around them. More than half the Covid Cases in that rat infested lib city but we should stop a whole damn season because the rest of the country will be fine in September. Do I have this right “Danny Dimes?” You loser.

    Everyone is an alleged humanitarian now, its hilarious. When this is all over, I want all you oh so virtuous dems and your fake sanctimony to bring this same energy toward the 200k people that died of heart disease in just 4 months. You guys are being so arbitrary in where you want to throw your empathy which screams agenda. All these damn hypocrites running around and also walking around scared. So pathetic. And you dumb humans that grandstand by saying “sports ball not important derrrr.” Your personal ideals are short sighted. Sports represents millions of jobs and brings in billions, which as a material impact on the GDP of the economy. Most of you are plebes that will live their lives being told what to do. Roll over, sit, good boy.

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    gofortheface30 ….lol Bravo!

  17. CunningLinguistics Says:

    @ “Goforetheface30”…..a truer post has never been submitted. Very spot on.

  18. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I get the feeling DannyDimes won’t last here. Hopefully, his IP gets banned so he doesn’t get on one of his other names.

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    I live in Pasco.

    Population of Pasco : 550,000

    Peeps with Corona in Pasco : 155

    The total number of cases in Florida is now 19,347 out of 22 million peeps.

  20. Mike28277 Says:

    Buc1987: first post, exactly!

  21. Dapostman Says:

    I disagree Ndog. The first season shouldn’t be Super Bowl or bust. It wouldn’t be Super Bowl or bust with Winston.

    I do believe that the Bucs got rid of the young QB for the old QB to win now but expectations should be somewhat tempered for the first season.

    So I believe it’s Final 4 or bust and as long as Tom Brady is at QB every season should be Final 4 or bust.

    No playoffs with Tom Brady either means Tom Brady regressed or the GM and coaching staff don’t know what they are doing. So they should get the AXE because we all know Tom Brady has not regressed.

    Final 4 or bust. Please do not pull a Bengals and make the playoffs and get bounced out the first round.

  22. Youngbucs Says:

    Ndog seriously if that is the case. Then was it Super Bowl or bust for Jameis if he were here ??????? Or just the same recycled crap with a bunch of excuses in between????????? When you respond to this try to stay on topic don’t beat around the bush I don’t need the fluff answer. The fact that you’re even able to say Super Bowl or bust tells Everyone all they need to know. Can you say upgrade 😂#NoMorePityParty#FilmDontLie#✌🏽

  23. bucsfaninoregon Says:

    You hardy Florida guys, think of DD and me when the middle of September rolls around and there are zero NFL games. Not trolling- -just trying to talk common sense. Draft for 2021.

  24. Wayne PEREZ Says:

    I don’t know why people think that there won’t be a season when Disney and the beaches will be open in 3weeks you actually think they’re going to keep everything shut down till or if they find a vaccine you’re crazy if you all think that

  25. NDog is an idiot Says:

    Got Rid of JaYMiss and JayMiss uniforms. We all good Now!! Who’s pursuing JayMiss?? Rays a possibility…

  26. bucsfaninoregon Says:

    Wayne, want to bet Disney is going to open in 3 weeks? keep drinking that Kool-Aid. I’ll check back in 3 Sundays.

  27. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Lmfao! Bow WOW, I mean NDog… that JBF famous Winston wining nut hugger needs to suck a lolli and RELAX!!! TB12 has done more for our BUCS in a few days then Winston did in 5 forgettable years, it was 5 right?! FORGETTABLE!!! Whooooooooo…… CARES!!!! Get on board or get run over!!! Argghhhhhhh!
    I’ve done hundreds of mock drafts for 2020, this draft is deeeeeeeep! I haven’t had a bad mock yet!!!! I’m stoked!!!!!

  28. SOEbuc Says:

    I never hated Tom as a player but have always hated that
    the Pat’s playingg against the Dolphins, Bills, and Jets twice a year was some major BS to probably help get to the playoffs every year.

    What I have hated for years is Bob Kraft and that same “cheesey” ass suit every game. Goes suit shopping with Gordan Gecko. Hard to find billionaires with class.

  29. Ndog Says:

    We have been through this 1,000 times, Brady will be here for 2 years Jameis would have been here for 15 so the opportunities are a little different. Winning the Superbowl is the only acceptable outcome for throwing away any future, period!!!

    This is common sense which apparently many of you lack.

    And to be clear Tom Brady has done nothing for this franchise, for goodness sake he hasn’t even attended a practice yet. For those of you that are all about hype you are sad pathetic excuse for a fan as you should always be excited for your team if you are a REAL fan.

  30. Tyrique13 Says:

    Now get Famous to back Brady up

  31. Youngbucs Says:

    You really are delusional 15yrs 😂 I’m done talking to u

    “For those of you that are all about hype you are sad pathetic excuse for a fan as you should always be excited for your team if you are a REAL fan.”

    Says the dude who just the other day said he can’t get excited for this team….because of Brady.

  34. Ndog Says:

    Exactly 1987 I speak the truth and share my feelings. Nothing wrong with that. I also said I hope it changes but just like with Jameis you people point out what you want the narrative to be and leave the rest out. Typical

  35. Ndog Says:

    YoungBucs if Brady can play till he’s 45 then a guy who’s bigger and stronger can play till he’s 41. Hopefully now that is outta of this QB killer offense he can get healther and play in a balanced offense in order to give a chance to really be successful.

  36. Youngbucs Says:

    🥱🥱🥱🥱Bigger and strong lol no thanks. I’ll take the guy with the IQ and mental capacity. #FilmDontLie#NoMorePityParty

  37. Ndog Says:

    You know what sucks is that for James’s entire career he had to play with horrible defense, no running game and average-at-best offensive line and all the sudden Brady walks in the door and gets to have a JPP or an entire season he’s got no Vernon Hargreaves to deal with I’m sure he’ll get a shiny new right tackle for him to go with a shiny new running back, everything right in place, while Jameis had to deal withdeal with the crap we produce for 5 straight years and Brady gets to just walk right in and everything is taylor made perfect for him just like him walking in the door of the great defense, great kicker, Hall of Fame coach, some guys have all the luck, while some guys have no luck whatsoever this world is all about luck and James has got none Brady’s got it all.

    Just think about this for a minute last year we had starting the first game Peyton Barber (undrafted), Demar Dotson(undrafted), for all intensive purposes DEVIN WHITE ON ONE LEG, Carl Nassib(cut by the browns in preseason) and Vernon Hargreaves(a complete waste that basically no one here wanted.)

    This year starting the first game it will be probably a stud rookie running back, a stud rookie Right tackle, Devin White, JPP and a corner who actually tries.

    And again you’re right Youngbucs the film doesn’t lie and the film says Jameis is way better than what people on this site say he is, thanks for pointing that out

    To be honest even without attending his first practice Brady has already done something Jameis hasn’t, that’s put 10k for fans in the seats with just his name recognition alone. He has brought relevance to the Bucs with his name alone. He has unified the majority of the fans that was divided about Winston. To say he hasn’t done anything for the franchise already just goes to show what a troll you are.

  39. Youngbucs Says:

    See how quick u change the narrative when you don’t have a answer.

  40. Youngbucs Says:

    He’s gone get over it. Better yet don’t talk till he gets a job baby steps bro.#NoMorePityParty

  41. Ndog Says:

    Yes he has unified us in thinking that we have 2 years to win the chimp and if not this move was a clossal failure. Glad we all agree Bucsfan77.

  42. WestChap Says:

    Danny(BrokenRecord)Dimes, no need to post the same doomsday guesswork in every thread. We’ve all got you down for “end of the world”. Move on.

  43. WestChap Says:

    This offseason has already been a win regardless of how the season plays out. Sure, expectations are sky high but there are multiple reasons: Brady, JPP, Suh and Shaq. If they go crazy in some bizarre virtual line dance tearing an ACL each, just the desire shown by the signings is a win. BTW, no crazy line dancing videos!

  44. Dapostman Says:

    Westchap says, This offseason has already been a win regardless of how the season plays out.


    Really? So if somehow the Bucs go 9-7 and don’t make the playoffs this season is a win?

    You are delusional.

  45. Oneilbucs Says:

    You know what I said the same thing Ndog . They are going to change the playbook for Brady as well . And remember Bruce Arians said he didn’t value runningbacks now he’s saying we need a 3 down runningback . And as for Jamies he’s just the most hated quarterback in the NFL right now . The way they bash him they didn’t do that to Sam Bradford or Blake Borttles . Facts …..

  46. Oneilbucs Says:

    But it’s superbowl or bust no excuses they are giving Brady every thing he need to win so no excuses ….

    Havent read the comments, not much time….but walterfootball has us playing KC…..and i agree.

    Angrywhiteguyface30 or whatever, keep drinking that orange kool aide. You morons that don’t believe in Science are the ones spreading this garbage further. So go out and shake hands and swap spit with the rest MAGA clowns so we can thin the heard.

    who did Walter football have playing last year?

  50. QUE589 Says:

    Trade for Trent. Decide in training camp whose going to move to RT.

    Rd 1 – Chinn or Delpit or Davis or Winfield (S)
    Rd 2- Taylor or Swift or Dobbins (RB)
    Rd 3 – Pitman Jr or Hamler or Mimms (WR)
    Rd 4 – BPA

    Move down in the 1st rd to pick up a 3rd, due trade for Trent cost a 3rd pick
    You may can flip my Rd 1 and Rd 2 selection.
