Bucs Are The Lead Dogs

October 15th, 2021

It’s cool to be a Bucs fan again!

For way too long, Bucs fans held their heads down in shame. It’s what happens when a fan base is kicked in the nuts week after week, year after year. Joe is confident some Bucs fans have yet to fully recover from the resulting PTSD.

So with the reigning Super Bowl champions off to a 5-1 start the Bucs are getting a lot of run from all sorts of media, not to mention many high-profile primetime games such as last night on FOX, NFL Network and Amazon Prime.

But it seems children in faraway places in our nation are getting turned on by the Bucs. And their favorite player isn’t a young, exciting video game-like quarterback such as Kyler Murray or Lamar Jackson or even Jalen Hurts.

No, it seems the guy pushing popularity with elementary school kids and younger is an old man six years from AARP eligibility.

Yes, that would be salad bar-hating, park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, numbers-rules-peeved, helmet-tossing, football-punting, Bucs-Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady.

“Good Morning Football” co-hosts Kyle Brandt — who dared to use the word “dynasty” referencing the Bucs — and closet Bucs fan Peter Schrager explain how their sons decided that the best gear to wear of all the NFL players is that of a middle-aged man.

It’s all in the really cool NFL Network video below. It seems in the schoolyards of New York City, the fresh NFL player to follow is Brady.

Given what Bucs fans went through during The Lost Decade, who saw that coming?

    Their were some dark days in this website. Just remembering the josh mccwon days and already looking forward to the draft by week 8 of each season. Thankfully all this has changed. Go BUCS

    That’s awesome! Who’d a thunk it just a few short years ago. It’s great fun to have a whole new cadre of Bucs fans across the country. Got to ride this train till if falls off the tracks.

    great, love it. TB12 is all/only reason we are what we are.
    Tom, unintentionally last night , reminded us that we are here ONLY because of him. 8 minute “without” him in forth Q, and we almost lost. Those 8 minute he become like JW… and then he came back, and took control of the game giving Bucs an other W.
    Interesting how kids can smell this. Awesome video clip, J. 👋

    I agree Joe. It is still hard to believe everything that has happened to the Bucs over the past 18 months.

    The Bucs are able to have half of the defensive starters injured and still win road games because they are able to overwhelm teams with their talent despite the injuries.

    Enjoy this for every moment… if you were here for 02-03, you know it doesn’t last long and can be taken away REAL fast.

    I remember thinking a successful season was merely playing meaningful games in DECEMBER. And then you’d end up looking at the draft by Halloween.

  6. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    As a lifelong Bucs fan, there were way too many years that the season ended before Halloween and draft talk always took over. Never have we had a team so talented, so decimated with injuries yet continues to win. Brady singlehandedly changed this franchise.

  7. Wesley Says:

    I believe we’re a top 5 maybe 6 team, but let’s settle down a bit. Look who we’ve beaten this year.

    Brady is the Beatles of football.

    It’s like a dream come true for us fans from day 1

    53, Tampa native – first game was a preseason game in 76 VS the Baltimore Colts – Bert Jones at QB that night- they smoked us – I was 8

    The big sombrero with those itchy metal seats….for 20 bucks I could sit at the 40 yard line surrounded by whatever NFC central Teams fans we were playing

    It’s all worth it now –

    It’s like a dream come true 👍

    Been a diehard fan for 42 years. I’m still not totally sure what to make of all of this, but for guys like LVD, ME13 and Will Gholston, I am like thrilled to death!

    Speaking of desk days.

    Remember when we were youngry and it was a “race to 10”?

    Or when we were learning about the thermostat and food temperatures being controlled by the head coach?

    These are good times fans. Enjoy them while they last.

  15. unbelievable Says:

    ^ *dark* days, not desk days

    Stupid autocorrect

    “Desk days” were Dark Days for me.

    I was at a concert in Dallas last weekend and saw a guy in a Brady jersey. I literally have never seen that outside of my house here before!
