“They Feel Like A Reality Show”

November 9th, 2020

Bucs were exposed.

Who knew that park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting Bucs quarterback Tom Brady gave a rose to furniture-tossing Bucs receiver Antonio Brown?

The Bucs are getting killed this morning on the national hollering shows. And deservedly so.

In probably the biggest crap-in-your-pants performance before a large audience the Bucs have had since the Tennessee Ready game, with a chance to take over the chase for the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoff picture, the Saints completely curb-stomped the Bucs at the Den of Depression last night.

And the Saints apparently took to Twitter to rub it in. Marshon Lattimore twittered the stats, gloating that he has owned Bucs star receiver Mike Evans in recent games. Alvin Kamara twittered a yawn emoji after the game.

At the breakfast table on “Good Morning Footballm” seen and heard on NFL Network, the gang talked about how everyone and their brother were blinded by the star power of the Bucs and overlooked the Saints.

Closet Bucs fan Peter Schrager claimed the only national “expert” he could find that picked the Saints to win was NFL Network stathead Cynthia Frelund. Her computer models have told her to be down on the Bucs all year.

Kyle Brandt believes the loss was so profound for the Bucs, that it was a landmark defeat that has far-reaching effects.

“The Bucs don’t even feel like a family,” Brandt began. “It’s more like a reality show. Just put a bunch of people in a house and see if this thing works.”

“That’s ‘The Real World,’ co-host Nate Burleson chimed in.

“You are right Nate,” Brandt replied. “And they stopped being real last night, too.

“It was like, would you rather have the L.A. Lakers or the Eastern All-Stars? And that’s what we saw. It was the Lakers by about 30 points. Not even close.”

Brandt said as a result of last night, you can stop with the Tom Brady is MVP talk. You can forget about the Bucs winning the NFC South and you can likely forget about the Bucs winning a Super Bowl.

Brandt said the loss was so significant for Brady, that in his autobiography, he will devote an entire chapter to last night’s game and the title of the chapter will be “38-3.”

NFL Network It-girl Kay Adams said maybe reality has set in on Brady that he’s no longer in the AFC East.

The Bucs “looked like they didn’t belong on the field” with the Saints, Brandt added.

No they did not.

One team came prepared to play. Joe isn’t sure what the Bucs were prepared for.

    Do the coaches even get all this? Adjustments? Even (wow) during a game possibly? We’ll soon see. But, like most Bucs fans, I’m not optimistic that these coaches are smart enough.

  2. NVMatt Says:

    You’d think with all the coaches in the organization that someone might have suggested that the supposed game plan of rushing 4 with zone could be too cute to actually be effective? The opposite could be said for the offense in not trying to do anything different, taking for granted that receivers will be open.

    Damn we are back to being the laughing stocks of the NFL. What is even worse is we are up against the cap and have all these so called Stars and everyone is laughing at us. Did everyone see the instagram video of Sean Payton in the locker room dancing after they beat the hell out of us. They acted like they won the damn super bowl already.

  4. WiscoJoe Says:

    It’s almost like the Glazers sold their souls to get that first Super Bowl. In a league designed for bad teams to go from bad to good in only a couple years the Buccaneers have managed to do just the opposite during the lost decade. Then the most decorated QB of all time comes to Tampa with the largest coaching staff in the NFL and for some reason they can’t get over the hump. Why can people at home see they can’t play zone coverage but the coaches can’t? And not even just last night but in general they struggle with it. They played soft zone against Chicago and look at what happened. It’s so damn depressing to get your hopes up for a special year only to get a swift kick in the family jewels. Maybe I’m overreacting?

    Well let’s see if they wilt with all the criticism or use it for motivation!!

    God I hate the Saints more than I ever did Philly right now!!

    You can add the sports networks to the other networks I’ve stopped watching for a while..

    I do think our defense is like a family……but they had the wrong game plan and didn’t adjust….

    The offense is another story……they are absolutely off…..

  7. Will Says:

    Not jumping off the boat but I’ll say this, this coaching staff is over rated. They keep talking about playing to the teams strengths but on defense continue to play a zone and have Shaq and JPP dropping into coverage instead of getting after the QB.
    BL continues to not realize that Brady is great with the underneath routes and that will open up the deep shots. I think if they’d used the same game plan they went to after Green Bay went up 10 this game would’ve been different and had we loss that way then at least we played to our strengths.

  8. Gofortheface30 Says:

    This was an orders of magnitude greater than the “Tennessee ready” game. First start for a rookie quarterback, first game of yr etc etc. What, exactly is the expectation there. It is incredibly profound how much worse last night was on multiple levels, and completely unacceptable. The Glazers, and JL should be apoplectic for that stain, that national embarrassment that was

    Reality tv shows are at least entertaining.

  10. Ron says Says:

    The saints were relaxed and balance throughout the 2 games with the Bucs they were better prepared not because they are superior but much better coached and this isn’t about the X’s and O’s it is about being relax and clam and on balance so you can execute, they were never relaxed or balanced during that game and were never in it. Hopefully the coaching staff will realize this as they break down the film and make sure the players are better prepared for the next game. Very disappointing lost as it can sometimes take away confidence which is a foundation of balance.

  11. webster Says:

    Guys we are overthinking this thing. I mean all the astute analysis about coaching or oline being the problem etc is nothing that is new. But again i say stop overthinking it. Lets do like most on this blog has done for 5 years and just blame the qb. It is all and only the qbs fault. Wash, rinse, repeat on every article no matter how poor other facets of the team performed, just blame the qb and all will be right with the world

  12. Miller5252 Says:

    Anyone watching the Saints and Bucs for the last couple of years knows the Saints own the Bucs. Payton makes Arians look like a pop warner coach the last 2 years. They know what the Bucs are going to do before it’s even rolled out. Even if the Bucs do make the playoffs they better hope they don’t play the Saints because it will be over right there. Being the biggest staff in the NFL and can’t make a change to match the Saints scheme is horrible and it’s been in all 4 games the Bucs have played them.

    nawl…reality shows have fights involved….

    this team has no fight…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  14. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    We lost this game, when we played the Giants, who exposed us.
    The win by the Saints was no accident, they are a much better team, and they proved that in our home stadium.
    If we do not win in Carolina, this team is going to unravel and implode.
