Undefeated Distraction Out Of The Way

September 26th, 2021

Joe is sad the Bucs lost today and snapped their 10-game winning streak. But at least one annoyance and potential distraction is out of the way.

The hollering shows on BSPN and various national radio shows invested a ton of time this summer rambling relentlessly about how an undefeated season was a huge goal of Tom Brady and how it was something driving Brady for 2021.

Joe found that to be a steaming pile of feces.

Brady didn’t get where he is today wasting time fantasizing about a perfect season. (Yeah, Brady quipped that he’d trade two rings for a perfect season, but he also said 90 percent of what he tells the media is nonsense.) Brady is dialed in to the grind of keeping his body right, winning one practice at a time and making sure his team has the habits necessary to succeed in January and February.

Implying anything else is insulting to the greatest player to ever grab a football.

However, Joe is certain that if the Bucs kept rolling and opened this season, say, 7-0, the undefeated-season chatter would have escalated to incredible heights and it would have been a distraction at some point for many Bucs not named Tom Brady.

Now, nobody has to worry about that. Joe is raising a Big Storm beer to toast the Bucs hopefully launching their next 10-game winning streak next Sunday in New England.

Oh, and the Chiefs are 1-2.

    Did Winfield Jr & Devin White take up glue sniffing in the off season 👃

    Was an undefeated season even considered?

    When you get your ass kicked and your Defense gets exposed as throughly as McVey did today, you need to wake up or the next thing you’ll be hearing is the sound of your season being flushed down the crapper.

    Peace, out

  3. Bucs Orlando Says:

    Totally agree. We need the hunger of reminder of failure.

  4. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    Defense has regressed badly and we have no DBs. Also no running game.

  5. Bucamania Says:

    Rams came to play today. Took the Bucs to the woodshed. Rams were laying the lumber everywhere, playing with hunger. Bucs couldn’t even catch a gift INT. Arians better get these guys focused.

  6. Steven007 Says:

    It was very satisfying watching the Chefs lose today. Long season. Never glad we lose but glad we got this one out of the way.

    Doesn’t matter. We aren’t winning the Super Bowl with this defense. The regression is astounding. And no it’s not just the CBs. It’s the whole unit. The young guys look like they took a step back. The vets look old and slow. There is no pressure on the QB anymore. The opponents top receivers are consistently wide open. This is a mess.
    Accurate assessment by Jerry and I agree completely

  8. Cobraboy Says:

    The Bucs got physically manhandled in every phase of the game today.

    This is a sloppy, uninspired team.

    They played the same as the prior three weeks…but against a far superior team…who is also hungry, a trait the 2021 Bucs completely lack.

    “Underachieve” doesn’t describe this bunch.

    I never thought this team would go undefeated, but I also didn’t think they would play such slop, either.

  9. VSyl Says:

    The offense needs some polishing, specially in the running game, but that is achievable. AB was also missed, but he should return and he rarely misses a game. Offense doesn’t concern me a bit.

    On the other side, the defense is terrible. I can’t even describe how bad this looks. The main problem is that it’s hard even to start trying to do something about it. I can’t believe that a defense that practised against our offense in the camps is playing that bad.

  10. Jerry Says:

    You act like this was a fluke game or something. We’ve now had 3 straight games where the defense was shredded. The defense has very obviously regressed, and quite significantly. They have a LONG way to go to get back to what they were.

    These problems are not going to be fixed in a week. And they won’t be fixed by Richard Sherman either.

    Yes, KC is 1-2. Why? Their defense sucks too. KC is just more proof that you can have a great offense, a great QB, but when your defense is playing so badly, you won’t win against good teams.

  11. Miller5252 Says:

    The sad things is this team has everything needed to be one of the best team ever, or just the best offense. The only plaster that is consistently getting close to the QB weekly is Vea. With his push the DE should be all over the QB but don’t come close. From the word go on offense Brandy looked scared and had happy feet, like he was gonna get hit on a 3 step drop. It’s really too bad with all this talent and no one can show up for big games. These young guys are taken steps back and the old guys look to be put out to pasture. All these coaches need to get these guys plying.

  12. Oneilbuc Says:

    That’s why I have always believe that Brady was not the only reason why we won last year. I also told yall that the last 8 games we won last year was against teams that didn’t make the playoffs. Without a defense it doesn’t matter who the quarterback is . I told yall the importance of a running game. We get those things fix we will be ok 👍🏽!!

  13. Darin Says:

    Nobody on the team got invested in that bs. Was never a distraction except to Josie

  14. MadMax Says:

    Well, injuries and missing starters doesnt help, especially in our D backfield…it also doesnt help seeing an open ME13 at the 3 yard line for an overthrow for your already injured Gronk…IDK WTF that was about….drove me crazy when I saw that….no wonder Evans threw his helmet as he sat at the bench afterwards….bleh is what it is, we lost to a great team while playing with many injured starters….

    I just want TB12 to learn from his injured decision making on that play please!

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! I forgot there were dummies talking about an undefeated season.

  16. Oneilbuc Says:

    Suh is playing like a old man right now !!

  17. Izod Says:

    Our defense has looked distracted and unfocused every game this year with the exception of one quarter against Atlanta.

  18. Eddie Marz Says:

    Good insight Joe. You don’t have to be undefeated to win the Super Bowl. I also think Brady was talking about that 16-0 season he had with New England. You can never map those things out. Anyway there’s still a lot of football to play. GO BUCS!

  19. Bucschamp Says:

    Bucs will bounce back and play nasty next. Poor NE

  20. Eli White Says:

    It just may be possible that the Superbowl version of the current team was pure luck and the weaknesses of their opponents including Mahomes injury and his lack of top linemen. The Bucs were caught up with the undefeated hype and lost sight of how good these opponents could be this year.

    DB’s can’t hold their man long enough to delay the QB enough for the D line to get to him. White and Winfield are just about non existsnt this year.

    Brady has to have the time becausevhe can’t scramble. Penalties again are out of control. Time to stsrt fining the offenders who cannot stop this nonsense.
