61 Yards Combined For Gronk, Mike Evans, Antonio Brown & Chris Godwin?? No Problem.

January 17th, 2021

Look at that headline.

Read it again.

It’s a mind-blower that the Bucs were able to roll up 20 first downs on the Saints without a penalty causing one of them.

The Saints shut down the big guns of the Buccaneers’ receiving game, and still the Bucs rolled up 30 points.

Now that’s depth and defense and a running game, and a quarterback making little or no mistakes.

It should tell you the Bucs are a damn good football team. Keyword, team.

This is why people talk about being able to run the football. When a stout defense shuts down your explosive studs, you need that run game to have a prayer, and you need complementary receivers to get the job done. When it comes to the second-tier targets, the Bucs are loaded.

Cameron Brate, Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson teamed up for more than the Bucs’ four superstars at receiver and tight end.

How exactly is Green Bay going to stop this Bucs offense? Maybe the weather will shut down the Bucs; Joe can’t think of anything else that’s going to get the job done.

    cam is quietly rockin’ these playoffs

  3. tbbucs3 Says:

    The WR Group was the weakest unit today.

    But Oline, QB, LB, DL and Kicking bailed them out.

  4. Jonny Says:

    Who Dat? The Bucs!

  5. Hodad Says:

    It’s the ability of Brady to make those guys better. It’s Brady who got them the ball, finding the open receiver. One things for sure, Jameis ain’t eating any W’s today.

  6. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Man can u just imagine Tampa playing in Tampa

  7. Clean House Says:

    Cams the man, team win

  8. Colonel Angus Says:

    Sign of a great offense, can get it done in multiple ways.

  9. Mitch Says:

    Bucs are deep and they did a great job. I just hope AB’s knee is ok.

  10. Fernando Says:

    GB defense is awful
    We can run the ball
    Confidence helps now

  11. Blogtalkfootball.com Says:

    Hell yeah!

  12. Jason From Jamrock Says:

    We didn’t move the ball effectively for a half guys.
    The defence kept the “juggernaut” offence in the game

  13. 68%fraud Says:

    Don’t get too cocky joe

  14. Blogtalkfootball.com Says:

    Our Cam outperformed their Cam!

  15. Jerome Says:

    Amazing headline. Speechless to read that and great article, Joe.

  16. Blogtalkfootball.com Says:

    Jason, that’s why it’s a team win!

  17. JimBuc2 Says:

    I’m guessing =18 Tyler Johnson is old eenough to drink. Beer on Jim anytime. Great job young man. Cheers’
    Go Bucs!!

  18. Jerry Jones Says:

    Yes, the weather might be a shock to the system, but the adrenaline will combat most of that Imo. And, a fair amount of the Bucs have played in cold weather, not worried.

  19. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Cam Jordan eating humble pie with Steve Smith. GO BUCS!!!!

  20. 123urout Says:

    I will allow the bucs to enjoy their win on their flight back to tampa. But tomorrow, get back to business and focus on the next game. Mission is not accomplished yet.

  21. the_end Says:


  22. BucDAWG Says:

    And too think, before the season fans and media wanted to get rid of Cam Brate, not so much now I’ll bet. Go BUCCANEERS!!!!!!!!

  24. RSJCheapSeats Says:

    The offensive line was amazing tonight. Brady didn’t play that great given the time he had – but it didn’t matter.

    I didn’t see winning like this – but it is pretty awesome.

  25. RioDeJaneiroBucsFan Says:

    Tyler Johnson’s catch was a thing of beauty. And he made a couple of great blocks too. This boy has a bright future

  26. ModHairKen Says:

    18s catch was the greatest since Bert’s that wasn’t.

  27. SOEbuc Says:

    Run game. It’s gone from a hate/love relationship with me and Fournette in the post season. I really hope RoJo can go Sunday. Looked like we have some players that were shaken up. AB? We’ll see. Carlton Davis doesn’t look good and what do you know he was playing good in a man defense again. I think Cokrell is a good backup, though. SMB was limping and so was Dean. Hopeful turnouts all around.

  28. gp Says:

    Gotta run the AC down to freezing in the training facility to simulate game day in Green Bay!

  29. SlyPirate Says:

    Fournette is making the most of his opportunity in the playoffs. He’s displaying quality moves, catching the ball, and getting tough first downs.

    Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller deserve more PT. Godwin … not so much.

  30. MadMax Says:


    What up Luv….

  31. DaBux Says:

    I’m good.

    Two more.

    Beers tonight.


  32. David Says:


    That’s kind of good news. After the “redskins” game and now this….

    I have a feeling Brady is going over 400 yards with 4 touchdowns next week and the running back’s will get over 100 on the ground.

    This offense is not going to be stifled 3 weeks in a row

  33. David Says:

    Don’t be hating on Godwin.

    He has been incredible since day one. He had one bad week last week.
    He made a big third down play this week. He dropped that touchdown pass but that was an incredibly tough catch.

  34. Bellingham Bucs Fan Says:

    Cam Brate is clutch. We been knowing that.

  35. JP09 Says:

    If your hating on any player right now, F U C K O F F!!! The BUCS WON!!! Team effort. In the playoffs it takes different players to step up at different times in each game. Get ready for another fight in GB

  36. REDZONE BA Says:

    @Bellingham – Brate has been $$$ his entire career. Dump OJ, and keep Brate and Gronk….

  37. NotTampaTom Says:

    Truly believe these Bucs are a really good team. A lot of different players have stepped up through the season. Regular season, tough games, playoffs, you name it.

  38. Jameishas2go Says:

    So I am watching Pro Football Focus Divisional Recap: Some guy, said the BUCS have not figured out there offense. Bucs needed plus 3 turnover margin to win. Bucs won inspite of Bruce Arians who was overly reliant on the running game. BUCS should dump Bruce Arians and hire Joe Barry who has not been hired by any other team to be the head coach. h hie says…WHY WOULD YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH JAMIES WINSTON AS THE STARTER NEXT YEAR??? His host said yeah, he puts but numbers but can you win with him?

    This guy is a clown, I wished I knew his name but … I cannot finish the video. LMAO. You have to see this Joe. These guys are clowns.

  39. Colonel Angus Says:

    How about the balance on offense tonight? 33 pass attempts and 35 running plays……Defense Rules should be dancing in the streets!

  40. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Payton picked his poison by focusing on shutting down the bucs passing game. The run game is better than he expected and the D balled out. Grinder game. Good teams figure out how to win the grinders.

  41. Tampa Brady Fan Says:

    This is exactly what Brady brings to a team- belief that no matter what they can win. It’s the mentality that is brought by playing with the GOAT.

  42. firethecannons Says:

    None of our guys bothered to hang around and shoot the sht with old Jameis. Never in a million years would we be anywhere close to the playoffs with that kid. Jason Licht has earned a future with this year. Now Bucs won’t need to go on a gm or hc search. Be best if we make no changes and keep Bowles and BL.

  43. 813bucboi Says:



  44. BB44 Says:

    Great team win TB. Good luck in GB. I think u have they’re number. Weather hopefully won’t be an issue. I told u Brady would take you to the promise land. You guys play team football like that. No one will beat TB. Even KC.

  45. BucEmUp Says:

    GB oofemse is better than.N.O….hope bowles keeps the same defensive game plan

  46. alton green Says:

    OK Bucs fans, let me give some words of wisdom. I can’t believe i’m saying this but cudos to Todd B. Yes, it took 17 frickn games to make an obvious adjustment. Nawlins was caught totally off guard. Besides obvious talent, the biggest factor was our D crowded the line of scrimmage and they couldn’t adjust. NOW MAYBE Todd and Byran will stop being so damn hard headed!!!!!!!! Yes, i’ve been watching for almost 60 yrs so you can imagine how pissed i’ve been about the dumb&$# defensive scheme. NOW MAYBE the coaches can TRULY appreciate the GOAT. Just remember when you look at a man(or woman) on top of a mountain, you know they didn’t FALL UP THERE!!!! Joe you nailed it. Tompa makes everybody around him better. I’ll have to admit when they was 3rd and 1 and they threw down the field, I said “what the frick” You have enuff weapons why in hell would you do that? well, they did it again haha. Green Bay??? Remember Tompa IS NOT a teet so DO YOUR JOB Bucs!!!!!!

  47. unbelievable Says:

    So I guess Joe finally realized running the football is for reasons other than just “the month the calendar says”?

    Lol. About time. 😜

  48. Ericb Says:

    Shout out to the defense!!! They really stepped up and played with intensity!!!! Keep up that intensity with green bay knock thier heads off!!!! Take away adams…and A jones….THE RUN GAME WORKS BALANCED ATTACK FOR SURE DAMN GOOD JOB BUCS!!!!! TEAM WIN FOR SURE EVERYONE PLAYED GREAT KEEP IT UP LETS KICK ASS IN GREEN BAY AND STAY IN ROGERS FACE LIKE LAST TIME WE PLAYED DONT GIVE THEM AN INCH SB IS ONE GAME AWAY TAMPA BAY ALL THE WAY

  49. Dan Williamson Says:

    All year Ive been saying it. Tom is the difference. Hes changed the culture by the weight of his built up gravitas and work ethic and his example of professiinalism. You can tell the fellas are all business niw.LETS GO!
