“Dreamy” Matchup

May 14th, 2021

Stoked for Bucs-Patriots.

Joe doesn’t get it.

Joe listened to Danny Kanell on SiriusXM Radio Wednesday — some suggest Kanell is a master troll but in reality Kanell draws ears and generates passion — claim the Bucs-Belicheats game in Week 4 will be the most anticipated game in the 102-year history of the National Football League.

What is Joe missing? One team (the Bucs) is defending Super Bowl champs. The other (the Belicheats) is coming off a losing season and we don’t even know who their starting quarterback will be, over-the-hill, shot-arm pouty Cam Newton or green-as-grass rookie quarterback Mac Jones?

For Joe, that’s not remotely a game that Joe would lie awake at night thinking about. A game in Week 3, the Bucs at the Rams, is a whole lot more intriguing and relevant than the Bucs-Patriots.

But popular national sports radio and network television sports personality Adam Schein is in the same boat as Kanell.

Schein, like Kanell, thinks this is the most anticipated game in NFL history. The host of “Time to Schein,” seen weeknights on CBS Sports Network, is loving the hype and he admits it freely.

Also, Schein said it’s not unreasonable to expect the Bucs to have a better regular season this year than they did last year. Some 12 wins should be within reach for the Bucs, he believes.

You can see Schein’s full take on the Bucs-Belicheats game in the CBS Sports Network video below.

    This is the only time Brady is going back to Foxborough. The enormity of this cannot be over-exaggerated. Bill & Tom have a score to settle

  2. Hodad Says:

    You can throw the records out the window for this one Joe. People want to see this.

  3. Mike C Says:

    I think the hype Joe (which seems obvious…..) is bigger than just this or the previous season, the story line is the best coach ever vs best QB ever.

  4. Bucsfanman Says:

    Please. Their just trying to drum up some drama so they can boost ratings. I think it’s pretty obvious that the “straw that stirs the drink” is the QB.
    Belichek is a HOF coach and no matter the outcome of that game, he will still be a HOF coach. Same applies to Brady.

  5. SB~LV Says:

    The first PPV NFL broadcast 😏… trust me it’s in the future plans of the NFL

  6. HeyItsAdam Says:

    The word “hype” was created for this specific game.

  7. TampaTown Says:

    I don’t know why anyone would assume the Patriots don’t have a chance. The pressure is all going to be on Brady and the Bucs not just to win, but mainly not to lose. Never underestimate the evil genius of Belichick. And I hope we don’t look past the Rams because if it.

  9. BucEmUp Says:

    I disagree, the Pats had more starters opt out than any other team. The weapons, and defense will be better and Bill will have a plan. Bucs should still win but it should good

  10. Bird Says:

    Brady vs belichick

    Its one game which they think will decide who is more responsible for the pats success

    Both want it bad i am sure
    Tickets going for up to 12,000 . Most hyped game ever – could be ?
    Outside of super bowls (so regular season) and those super bowl prices – could be ?

  11. SB~LV Says:

    BB probably the best game planner in the NFL… Bucs talent has the edge in this case

  12. Jason Says:

    It may not be the most anticipated game ever yet, but by the time it’s played social media will have made it so.

  13. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Sounds like ticket prices are going up almost as fast as JBF readership/Ira’s salary cap #. This will be the Patriot Nation version of their super bowl. Coming off the heels of a west coast trip to SoFi stadium won’t make it any easier.

  14. Buczilla Says:

    Brady has proven that he can win a super bowl without Belichick. Belichick has yet to prove that he can win one without Parcells or Brady. If it was Bucs/Pats in this years superbowl, then I get it, but it’s just a regular season game.

  15. rrsrq Says:

    The media making this bigger than it is, but at least those not in the Tampa Bay market get to see a Bucs prime time game. I agree, it is the Rams (Stafford), Falcons(their receiving corps) Bills, WFT (Fitz) and Saints (Winston/Hill). Pats v. Bucs is only appealing if we get Mac Jones v. Kyle Trask 😁

  16. ClodHopper Says:

    “What is Joe missing?”

    You say it all the time, Joe. Drama sells. The game might not be the best ever but the drama is as high as it can be.

  17. Chris l Says:

    What football fan doesn’t want to see this game joe? Kind of a weird take. Just because it isn’t our hardest matchup doesn’t make it less meaningful. We know you hate watching the patriots so maybe that is the reason

  18. Irishmist Says:

    Brady and Belichick with both say this game means no more than any other on the schedule. And they’ll both be lying their a$$es off.

  19. Jerry Says:

    On paper, it’s not the most thrilling match-up of the year. In fact it should be a boring match-up. The Bucs have the better roster, the better QB situation, the better defense. What’s hyping the game is the external factors, emotions, and the human factors. The fact it’s Brady’s final game in Gillette stadium. The fact that’s its likely the one and only final showdown between Brady and Belichick. Etc.. That’s what’s driving the hype and will continue to do so.

  20. DingleBerry Says:

    This article sounds exactly like it was written by the guy who said he actively went out of his way to ignore watching the Patriots for the last 20 years because watching a modern day dynasty be great was “boring.”

    It’s the greatest QB of all time going back to face off against his former coach who just happens to be arguably the greatest head coach of all time.

    What’s not to get?

  21. Buc4evr Says:

    The media and all their hype are laying a dangerous trap for the Bucs. Let’s just hope the Buc’s players don’t buy into any of this.

  22. DingleBerry Says:

    Just in case you were unaware Joe, you ignoring the Patriots like you did, you missed out on some of the most entertaining football games and certainly some of the most entertaining/drama filled Super Bowls ever.

    Its a shame that someone who calls themself a fan of the sport couldnt appreciate greatness right in front of their own face.

  23. ocala Says:

    12 wins in a 17 game schedule would be a disappointment. 12 wins would not be enough to get a first round bye. If the Bucs want the number 1 seed they will need to win 13 or 14 games.

  24. PSL Bob Says:

    It’s not so much about the supporting cast and records. This is about Belicheat vs Brady. The record books for New England during Brady’s presence were unreal. The debate was what makes the team so great, the head coach or the QB. Brady left, and New England didn’t make the playoffs. Brady will want to put an exclamation point on this debate. By defeating the Patriots in Foxboro, he will contend that he had more to do with the Patriot’s success than Belicheat. And, I think he’s right.

  25. Bojim Says:

    Anticipated game and good game are not the same

    This is the only time Brady is going back to Foxborough.

    I assume you mean to play a football game. I’m sure he will honored there someday along with other former players.

  27. Doctor Stroud Says:

    This is more about how Brady and Belichick will greet each other after the game. This is what happens every time Belichick plays one of his ex-coordinators. The hype will be even more pronounced now that he will be coaching a game against the best player that he has ever coached and the key to his success. My prediction: a cordial handshake and much ado about nothing!

  28. David Says:

    That seems like a trolling article. Of course it’s heavily anticipated!!! The coach and quarterback of the biggest dynasty in football history going against each other. Hello my girlfriend doesn’t follow football at all and she mentioned this game. You can’t possibly be that clueless Joe
