    Drew Brees noodle arm kept the Bucs in the game. Look at the film Saints wrs were getting open beyond 15 yards but Brees wouldn’t or couldn’t pull the trigger on a lot of those throws, especially on 3rd down. If they leave Carolina wrs that open Teddy Bridgewater won’t turn those down like Brees did.

  2. JayWill Says:

    I notice Brady wouldn’t take the hits Winston, Luck, Big Ben & Palmer would take to get the ball out to wr running open in mid to deep routes. He had 6 explosive plays but should of had over 10 if he didn’t choose to protect himself by throwing it away or ducking over making the throw thru contact as Arians offense requires. Do you think it will become an issue with Arians if Brady keeps throwing it away or ducking when there are wide open wrs coming open? Godwin was open all day should of been a 150 yard day. I watch film of Brady was giving up on deep routes too soon.

    I dont disagree with your point that Arians didnt have the team ready, but you’re 100% wrong about not having a proper offseason not having an effect. First off, Joe Burrow is not the trump card you think it is. Joe Burrows stat line in a loss to the Chargers was nothing to write home about. He had 193 yards 0 TD’s and 1 Interception.

    The 2nd thing is that if you look all across the league, the Teams that had more continuity going into the season by and large outplayed their opponents by a significant margin. Your boy Florio has made this point many times since Sunday.

    Brady had a couple hiccups but over all his performance was not nearly as bad as many are making it out to be. Even with all the yards that weren’t gained by getting chunks from PI he still had much more production than the majority of QBs that played this weekend.

    The sky isnt falling. 15 games to go.

    It’s good to see Ira get as surly as Bucs fans. Enjoy your lobster roll, Ira!

  5. Mike in Tampa Says:

    Donovan Smith is only playing this season for the paycheck. He wanted to sit out due to Covid. Huge RED Flag

  6. TampaTown Says:

    I was so glad Ira did his part and picked the Saints and hopefully he’ll pick the Panthers. But Joe is trying to jinx us by saying Brady’s never been 0-2. I almost drove into a telephone pole when he said that.

  7. Mike Johnson Says:

    Ok Mike In Tampa..so who is to say Brady is not playing for a paycheck. They are all playing for money. Brady is playing for..more money. So your comment is kinda stupid.

  8. Tony Says:

    If we don’t make the playoffs this year fire everyone start over again. No more excuses this year.

    Is our OL coach J. Gilbert still here? Good grief!

    Just don’t pul a Sapp. Pay the lady and don’t beat her. 😂😂

  10. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    We have assembled a powerful mixture of experienced veterans and young talent.

    The story line for this team this year is going to be coaching. For BA it will be about overall preparation and game planning. On offense for BL it will be about game calling and game management. For TB it will be about game planning and management on the defensive side.

    The New Orleans game was the baptism by fire that the abnormal off season did not allow for the Bucs to prepare for ideally. Though the Saint performance was not superlative they had the advantage of continuity that we did not have.

    How we play in our home game against them on November 8th and how we do against the Chiefs on November 29th will foreshadow our potential for success in the playoffs.

    Dean did not mess up on the big play, it was on the safety, he bit in cover 2.

  12. Big Stinky Says:

    Have to say that I agree with Lee which hasn’t been the case over the past 5 years. This team is undisciplined and has been since Schiano. I don’t think the “Quarterback Tinkerer” is as good as everyone thinks he is. Came to collect retirement if you ask me. Doesn’t want to call plays on offense which kills me, sits in his cart during practice like he is the Pope, and claims he NEVER runs the same play twice in a game. That one really eats at me to my core. If something works in a game keep on doing it until they prove they can stop it. Run plays sure look alike when they go up the middle. And take that stupid effing play out of the playbook that got returned for a touchdown. Replace it with slants and short crossing patterns that you use more than one time stupid.

    Whoever named him the QB whisperer is out of their frickin mind. It is clear to me that he ruined SHAMELESS with those option routes that they can’t seem to read the same way. Now it’s even happening with the GOAT. Looked like I was watching Winston Sunday on some of those plays. Think these 2 years of Brady will be my last watching the NFL. Koetter was developing JW3 if you ask me. Had his best stats the third year and was hurt early in the season. Have to say I never did want Jameis but hoped he would succeed. Thought the team should trade the pick and get another No.1 pick and whatever else to build.

    Hopefully Brady can overcome the bad coaching by Arians and the bad play calling from Leftwich in the future. These 2 years are it for me I think. Licht has no clue how to BUILD a team after 7 years. How many good players do we have that are young from the Draft? About done with the racist BLM crap too. Whoever said black lives matter to me for the first time is the REAL racist if you want the truth. Every life matters you sorry ass bitches. What makes a black person better than anyone else or more valuable? Because they are good at sports. Black people fought for their rights in the 60’s for a reason, they were always second class citizens until then. Almost twice as many white people have been killed by police over the last 5 years so knock off the bullchit already. Racist community will NEVER change no matter what! Love how you are a victim just because you are black.

    I’m with you Ira. Rojo ran well with very little holes. Good vision. He’ll be good this year.

  14. Joe Says:

    Just don’t pul a Sapp. Pay the lady and don’t beat her.

    Over $40 right? That $40 he saved cost him a $540k a year job. 🤦🏾‍♂️

    That is the ultimate definition of pennywise and pound-foolish.

    (Sapp’s “incident” happened in Phoenix, no?”)
