Another Patsy Finish Perfect For Tom Brady

July 12th, 2021

A Tom Brady philosophy was shared last week and it has Joe smiling.

In the recent episode of In The Current, the miniseries looking back at last season, Brady explained how great and important it is to hammer opponents leading up to Week 1 of the postseason.

“Anytime you get a chance to know that when you win a game you advance to the playoffs, you don’t want to necessarily back your way in by someone else losing or someone else faltering,” Brady said. “You really want to put your best out there so that you can look at that performance and go, ‘Yep, that’s why we’re in the playoffs, because of performances like that.'”

Joe realizes Brady’s comments may seem like a no-brainer, but they’re not. A lot of QBs and/or players would say that however you get to the playoffs is a good way and the postseason is a fresh beast.

The Bucs finish the 2021 season as follows: at Carolina, at Jets, home for Carolina. Yeah, anything can happen in the National Football League, but those are two subpar football teams with new, young quarterbacks.

Just about everyone from Vegas to Valrico expects the Jets and Panthers to leave this season as losers.

Tampa Bay wrapped up last season with three games against losing teams that already had fired their head coach: at Atlanta, at Detroit, home for Atlanta.

The Bucs had a ferocious comeback to win at Atlanta, 31-27, before Christmas. And then they clinched a playoff berth by pounding the snot out of the hapless Lions, 44-7, the following week. They finished off by crushing Atlanta, 44-27, behind an eye-popping offensive show.

So if you accept the Brady theory on steamrolling into the playoffs, the Bucs are primed for a couple of blowouts again before embarking on another Super Bowl run for the ages.

Could a Bucs fan ask for better than the Jets on the day after New Year’s?

    Brady’s maturity had a calming effect on this team which helped everyone perform at a higher level

  2. Casual Observer Says:

    All true. But don’t get carried away. One of those teams might surprise by the end of the season. It happens.

  3. SB Says:

    Super disturbing tho that we allowed ATL 27 points Twice!

  4. Mike Says:

    It’s never easy to win in the NFL, but the Bucs did make it look easy on many occasions last year. Hope they keep it rolling!

  5. PSL Bob Says:

    Confidence baby! We will kick the snot out of the Panthers and Jets in the lead up to the playoffs. And then have a bye week before our first post-season game.

  6. Bucs Bro Says:

    ATL was dangerous in 2020, they could easily have been a winning team.

    Lost to Dallas by 1
    Lost to Chicago (a playoff team) by 4
    Blew out the Vikings by 17
    Lost to the Lions by 1
    Lost by 5 to a Drew Brees Less New Orleans squad
    Lost to the Chargers by 3
    Lost to the Chiefs by 3

    8 losses by one possession or less. Just shows how close this league is.

  7. Bucs Bro Says:

    If the Bucs make the playoffs in 2021 and win one playoff game this would be the first time in their history they’ve won a playoff game in consecutive seasons

  8. Bojim Says:

    We couldn’t finish games before Brady showed up

  9. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs have nearly always sucked vs the Jets… I had to look up the stats, and sure enough, the Bucs are 2-10 vs the Jets, including 0-7 on the road.

    Reminds me of playing the stupid Bears in Chicago, the Bucs, no matter how good they are, lose that game.

    Don’t be putting W’s on the board in July.

  10. DRFEELGOOD Says:

    True Munch, but Brady usually kicks arse against the Jets and has played so many games there for the road team.

  11. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    As many blow out losses we’ve had to endure as fans we deserve for them to blow out every team that they can. Brady had that mentality when the Pats went 18-1 and I hope the Bucs will have the same. I know I’d be happy with 45 point games every time.

  12. Steve Buc Says:

    Without Brady, the Bucs hoped to win each game. With Brady, they EXPECT to win. His leadership skills and work ethic set the tone for the rest of the team.

  13. Bradley Brown Says:

    For all their foibles, the Buccaneers have a winning record in the playoffs

  14. Edward Overby Says:

    Brady,does not lose to the Jets. If you think with one year under their belt they are not going to be surprised. Brady wants an undefeated season in the worst way and this team is good enough.
