The Brady Effect; Night Games Not Included

November 8th, 2020

They said it wouldn’t happen.

All that culture change talk at One Buc Palace had a clear message: Tom Brady would bring a consistently new day in Tampa Bay.

Until tonight, it was a fun ride. The Bucs were 6-2 and improving since opening day and learning how to win, even when they didn’t play their best.

And then came tonight’s ass-kicking by the Saints. Joe literally can’t find a bright spot in the game, which simply is not supposed to be part of a Brady performance — with a Brady-run locker room filled with talent.

What’s quite concerning is the Bucs playing poorly in all three of their night games. Coincidence? Joe’s not big on coincidences. They don’t look ready for prime time football.

It’s one game. It happens, but not this bad. Not with Tom Brady. And it’s not supposed to happen at home.

Until the Bucs win again, it sure doesn’t feel like the culture has changed.

    All this team does is choke in prime time

    Absolutely pathetic. Who cares about the post season? They’ll get bitched up if it’s a night game.

    Or if they have to play Taysom Hill- a worthless gadget okay quarterback who does nothing against 90% of teams but makes every. single. bucaneeers. defender look like a soft a$$ b!tch.


    This teams doesn’t even deserve the post season.

    Who were the idiots telling me this is a top defense, right there with those all-time great 1997-2002 defenses? LOL!

    Its one game yeah… a big game… the BIGGEST game on the BIGGEST stage. We will not win in the playoffs if we manage to get in there. Its embarrassing I thought this team was capable of a super bowl. Sell this team to new owners

    I hate this team. What a disgrace. Nothing has changed. I am done. #ItsABucsLife and freaking Weenie Arm made a return tonight!!!!!!!

  5. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Unless this happens next week I am not worried yet. usually when these games happen it’s our last chance to have a snow balls chance at the playoffs

    Also there is a damned good chance the Vultures who hate this team and wanted Jameis are going to be all over these threads in the next week.

    Brady was looking like Winston throwing all those INTs.

  7. Lamarcus Says:

    Overrated. Like I said. Fire BL and ill help pack his belongings

    Who needs wInStOn when you have The GOAT. Smh lmao

  9. Bosch Says:

    The saints won 4 phases of the game. They won coaching too. I have never seen ant team play so hard and lose so bad as the Bucs did tonight.

  10. Mike C Says:

    Wow, What a way to $#!% the bed Bucs smh

  11. EA Says:

    The story of this game is total domination by the saints in the trenches

  12. Bosch Says:

    O line excepted. They did not play hard. Good riddance 76!

  13. Bosch Says:

    This offense looks like the 76 expansion team

  14. JimmyJack Says:

    Rid Munch Ive been one saying this defense is good. Not sure i ever stated there were a top unit.

    I wont admitt i was wrong just yet and see how they bounce back but I got my doubts after this garbage.

  15. JimmyJack Says:

    According to Deckerhoff Winston warming up.

  16. Colin in Canada Says:

    The problem is that everyone in the Bucs staff and in the locker room knew this was the most important game of the season and they completely blew it. Out coached and outplayed in every facet of the game. Very disappointing.

  17. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    I’d be a lot less worried had that Giants game not happened just last week…a game we should have lost.

  18. Bosch Says:

    For those stat geeks, is this the worst game of Brady’s career?

  19. Pewter Power Says:

    Gotta say I’m glad I stopped watching in the 4th quarter. Sounds like another unwatchable game, spending money on nfl gamepass for nothing AGAIN, I definitely won’t rewind this or last weeks game.

  20. Bosch Says:

    I am suddenly struck by the irony. After we cut DS 76, the number should be retired. It is a curse.

  21. Bosch Says:

    Bucs just set an nfl record for fewest rushes. 5

  23. Snook Says:

    5th slow start in 6 games. 6-3 is a mirage.

  24. Bush's Coke Spoon Says:

    What happened this week which might have disrupted the chemistry on possibly the best Buccaneer team ever assembled?

    This is what happens when you have owners willing to sell their souls for a bit of success. It just might backfire. Congratulations sellout Glazers. Did you see your golden boy posing on the sideline while the clock was running out to end the game? What a changed, humble fellow. Way to ruin it for everybody.

    “Who needs wInStOn when you have The GOAT. Smh lmao”

    Wow, Dude! Where you been? I already had a funeral for you.

  26. adam from ny Says:

    i’m completely speechless…

    and it seems jameis got the last laugh…go figure

  27. "Kick Touda Gooch" Says:

    I believe in Arians.
    Leftblitz not a good fit for O.C. i.m.o. Game too fast for him it seems.Judging by the lack of creativity and predictable week to “weak” play calling. He may wanna drop a level to college. Maybe a good recruit for Lovie. Sample size here has shown enough I think.
    I think we should consider that now is time for some next man up drills during practice on D. Especially corner slots. We are always slow to start and getting burned constantly in zone by any Q.B. over 50%. Play more man. We have the pieces. Just move em around get aggressive and let’s thrash part 2 of season after the embarrassment we Buc fans took tonight. Pre season showings no more. Let’s go boys.. Next game up. We’re hungry.. are you?

  28. Sesteprenelicus Says:

    Also I imagine the balls were wet… that affects Brady he has admitted. And the wind was horrific… didn’t affect Brees, but Arians offense may not be geared to play when long passes can get blown off track.
