This Is Why The Bucs Brought Tom Brady To Tampa Bay

January 23rd, 2021

The time is now.

Not everyone is on the Bucs bandwagon, sad as that is to point out.

One guy wrestling with trying to find a way to see how his closet football team, the Bucs, can win the NFC Championship game is Peter Schrager of NFL Network.

The co-host of “Good Morning Football,” Schrager, Joe swears is a closet Bucs fan. You rarely if ever hear or see Schrager say something bad about the Bucs.

On Friday’s edition of “Good Morning Football,” Schrager told his co-hosts, with visible pain in his face, he thinks the Bucs will have to play the perfect game to get past the cheddar and green. Not because he doesn’t think the Bucs are good, he just thinks the Packers are that damn good, no matter that the Bucs curb-stomped them back in October.

There is, however, a way Schrager said he could see the Bucs winning. That’s a close game in the fourth quarter with the ball in the capable hands of park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking Bucs quarterback Tom Brady.

“I think a lot of things have to happen perfectly for them,” Schrager said of the Bucs chances in the NFC Championship game. “We can talk about all these other X-factors [but] … they need everything to go right Sunday. [Aaron] Rodgers is that good. Lambeau is that intimidating. The Packers are playing that well.

“But this is why back in February [the Bucs] decided to go all-in. Scrap Jameis. Scrap any Teddy Bridgewater talk and scrap any trade ideas and bring in Tom Brady.

“Let’s say this [game] is close. Is there anyone else on earth that you want to see under center for your team in a close football game? … On the road, fourth quarter, in Lambeau, Brady is going to have to have a moment. And Brady is going to have to make all the work that he has put in … really kind of manifest.

“And I think it is going to be one of those deals where Brady is going to be one of those guys that says, ‘This is why I’m here. This is why we are here. Follow me. I’m the greatest of all time. I can get us to the finish line.'”

In short, with the ball in Brady’s hands in the fourth quarter in a close game, that’s why the Bucs went through all the hassle to bring Brady to Tampa Bay, Schrager pointed out.

If somehow the Bucs squeeze two more wins out of Brady’s old bones in the next three weeks, the City of Tampa may have to rename Columbus Drive south of the stadium “Tom Brady Avenue.”

  2. August 1976 Buc Says:

    “You play to win the game” Herm Edwards That is why the Lord of the Rings T Brady is the QB for the Bucs. Whether it is the 1st game of the season or the Super Bowl, or the NFC Championship on the hallowed frozen tundra of Lambeau field. You play to win the game. 2nd place is the first loser. GO BUCS!!!

  3. PSL Bob Says:

    God please don’t let it be that close at the end. Don’t think this old heart can take it.

  4. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I hope we rattle AR’s smug azz and make him look bad.
    I never really disliked him until the “curb stomping” earlier this season.
    He really seems like a prick.

    Go Bucs!

  5. TheBradyBunch Says:

    Well the only other QB I would want to have late in a close game at Lambeau Field would be the guy in green and yellow. I am hopeful but Rodgers is going to be hard to beat! Go Bucs!!!

  6. EA Says:

    Bucs D will put a hurtin on these guys like they did last time they faced them. Bucs D will be the hungrier out there, they will fly around the ball like they did last week, the only person who’s gonna be intimidated is Aaron Rodgers.

  7. EA Says:

    I expect a similar outcome as last year’s NFC championship game, San Francisco hit them in the mouth and ran the ball to take a big lead early.
    I fully expect bucs D to be the more physical out there, run the ball and the clock and let Tom (the goat 🐐) Brady do his magic.
    Go bucs!!!

  8. Seemore Bucs Says:

    EA, I couldn’t agree more. Green Bay doesn’t like real physical teams like San Francisco was with them last year. Once in the regular season and once in the NFC Title Game. This season, Bucs whipped them in the regular season and now it is time to do it in the NFC Championship Game. I expect a comfortable Bucs victory by 10-14 points at least with Tom Brady taking a knee in the Victory formation. Much to the dismay of the haters, Packers supporters and so many thinking it will come down to the wire. GO BUCS!!!!!!!

  9. Buxszntkt Says:

    I agree with Jmarc ! Kay Adam’s is very tasty !!!
    She wears more makeup these days though. Years past she was the girl next door type that you always wanted to ban…., I mean have a coffee with.

  10. Defense Rules Says:

    I liked what Nate had to say best (about his conversation with his snowbird neighbor who lives in Tampa). It wasn’t about us picking Tom Brady; it was about Tom Brady picking us to finish out his career as a WINNER.

    Brady’s the Greatest Of All Time for a reason: he knows what it takes to win. He picked Tampa because we had enough pieces in-place to allow him to be the X-factor that he is and take this TEAM to the next level. And he’s doing exactly that. He’s a man on a mission, and this TEAM has the horses to get him there.

    But our Bucs will win tonight because this TEAM isn’t JUST about Tom Brady. Guys like LVD & Suh & JPP are also men on a mission, and they won’t be denied at Lambeau Field. This afternoon’s game will be a TEAM win. BOTH sides of the ball, plus our S/Ts, will deliver big-time and play some outstanding COMPLEMENTARY FOOTBALL. Our Bucs won’t be denied: WE GOT THIS.

  11. FirstTimePoster Says:

    DoooshLarue, Spot. On. Rodgers never really bothered me either. Until this year. He seems to have a smarta$$ look on his face all the time. Somebody needs to faceplant that guy.

  12. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    I agree Rogers is great. But not much he can do when his average run defense is letting the Bucs control the game thru running and play action. And I do not see the Packers running on the Bucs, with or without Vea, certainly not to the point of playing ball control.

    Bucs Win!

  13. mdsbuc Says:

    If Brady leads “drives” to win the conference game and the Super Bowl, then Columbus should be renamed Tom Brady DRIVE, not Avenue….
