One Reason The Bucs Have A Dangerous Scoring Offense

October 15th, 2021

Antonio Brown dives into the end zone late in the first quarter.

This just ends any curiosity as to why the Bucs offense scores a bunch of points.

Shoot, the Bucs only score 28 points last night and it almost feels like something was broken (like a thumb?).

If Joe told you the Bucs have two of the NFL’s best scoring machines in the passing game, would it surprise you?

Well the Bucs do. Since the 2010 season, the Bucs have the two best touchdown machines in the NFL. That would be foot-rubbing, car-littering, film guru tight end Rob Gronkowski and furniture-tossing, bicycle-throwing receiver Antonio Brown.

Since 2010, Gronk and Brown are Nos. 1 and 2 in touchdown receptions. Gronk has 93 and Brown now has 83 after his touchdown last night in the win over the Eagles.

Brown last night broke a tie he was in with Bears tight end Jimmy Graham (82 touchdowns) who is No. 3.

So, yeah, when you have the two best touchdown machines in the receiving game in the NFL, you ought to have a powerful passing offense.

    Don’t be teasing about broken thumbs Joe. Do you know something that we don’t?

  2. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Yes, and when you have the greatest QB of all time, throwing to these touchdown machines, you get plenty of points.

  3. Buc4evr Says:

    AB is really our #1 WR.

  4. Pelbuc Says:

    AB is definitely the Bucs most clutch receiver especially in the absence of Gronk.

  5. bucfanforever Says:

    And Evans is almost on that list at 65 TDs

  6. Rico210 aka wutdaBucisthis Says:

    Off topic, Tre Flowers released… any thoughts?
    I love the fact that when these records are being set, the Bucs logo is next to said player.
    Go Bucs

  7. Beeej Says:

    Sigh. I started Evans last night

  8. Medicated Pete Says:

    AB = WR 1

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Philadelphia did a fantastic job on Evans & Godwin last night…..but, couldn’t handle our #3 WR, AB…..and OJ was a factor…..just simply can’t cover everybody.

    As for the thumb……BS…..Brady @ 81% completions…..had the thumb up his a$$ on a couple of plays….but all in all….looked very sharp.

  10. Keith Says:

    Mike Evans is a Catching WR. That boy has never had yac over 15 yards. Like a deer in head lights with open space infront of him. Don’t be surprised if Evens is gone next season AB and Godwin are our 1 and 1b.

  11. Casual Observer Says:

    I really enjoy watching AB play. Enthusiasm squared. Ability squared. Now, as Joe said, get him some better cleats. With those he would have had even more yards. And with Gronk coming back and the other elite WRs – this looks to me like the best set of receivers on one team in NFL history. Plus the GOAT throwing to them. This fun season may only get better!

  12. Robert Says:

    AB will be getting paid next year, and rightfully so.

    dude is so clutch and such a delight on the sidelines.

    no hate on ME today….I didn’t see him miss a route or trip on himself. that’s progress.

  13. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Without AB previous antics he would be #1 on that list already.
    It is good to see him get his life and career back on track.
    If he stays clean….If he stays clean, he is on his way to getting one of those yellow jackets in Canton one day.
    And yes he is the #1 WR on the Bucs.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  14. tampabuscsbro Says:

    Hey can we talk about how AB was right about a lot of things.

    The Steelers
    The Raiders

    It really makes you think.

  15. Marine Buc Says:

    Our running game was much more effective last night. They should have kept pounding the rock but decided not to and had several “three and outs” which allowed Philly back in the game…

    Fournette and Brown had great games and even OJ Howard made an appearance.

  16. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    Bucs need to abandon the heavy formation. It does not work. It leads to paltry 0-2 yard gains and we end up in 2nd and long or 3rd and long. AB should barely leave the field. Currently, he is averaging a little over 50% of snaps, yet he is our best offensive player not named Brady. We can run more effectively with the threat of pass, spreading out the defense. Yet we barely attempt it. Even though Lenny racked up yards last night, he still averaged less than 4 yards per carry, and got stuffed on far too many attempts. 25% of the time, Bucs only have 1-2 receivers out there. That number should be less than 10%, reserved for 3rd and 1 or goal line. Bucs may have the best offense in the NFL, but it still has major room for improvement with a few tweaks in gameplan.

  17. SlyPirate Says:

    What about Chris Godwin?

    He’s playing for a big contract and quickly becoming WR #3. He can’t be thrilled with his lack of production.

  18. ModHairKen Says:

    I am sure all of these guys all want the ball. If they didn’t, then they would not be where they are. In the end, I hope they would all trade #1 status for a chance to win multiple SBs.

  19. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Like Kobe Faker has said repeatedly

    Tom Brady “The GM”

    is the reason why we won the Superbowl and where we are at


    Both Arians and Jason Gump dint want these players

    Thank goodness Brady doesnt answer nor respect these 2 hacks

    Brady goes straight to the Glazer Boys and gets what he ever wants”

    Kobe Faker

  20. Coburn Says:

    Yeah sly. For the Bucs so far waiting on that contract (I mean they do need to free up money) has been a wise decision. That’s no slight against Godwin. The opportunities just havent been there. May end up getting a steal at end of year

  21. Rod Munch Says:

    The armchair GM’s here, last year, said we didn’t need AB, he would just be a distraction. The same dummies said we didn’t need Gronk back, he was washed up.

  22. Must Be Blind Says:

    And ME13 has 66 early in his 8th season

  23. Ed Says:

    Tom Brady for the moment isn’t seeing MIke Evans as open as Antonio Brown is. I like Evans for his great work on the sidelines and running catching balls on the edges 15-20 yards downfield. His redzone work is sensational.

    His productivity will slide as long as Brady sees other guys more open. Mike doesn’t explode out of his routes like Brown does and he isn’t quick. His best plays are made when he can drive a defender down field and come back and use his body and height to make the catch. Problem is that Brady wants to make the quick toss and get it out.

    I think Mike may need a change of scenery, his best plays are made on over the shoulder, underthrown deep balls and tip toeing the sidelines. Much more of Michael Irvin, Julio Jones, Terrell Owens type of receiver. Those kind of players thrive on a lot of balls coming their way and need time to work downfield and overpower smaller DB’s. The quick read and pass offense that is Brady’s strength doesn’t need an overpowering receiver, just someone that is ready for the ball as it is getting there in a hurry.

  24. Bellingham Bucs Fan Says:

    When will opposing defenses catch up to fans in this revelation that AB is our #1 receiver?

  25. unbelievable Says:

    The same armchair GMs also say every year we should trade Evans.

    People seem to forget there’s a reason AB is going up against the opposing team’s #3 CB…

    We are very lucky right now.

    We have three legit #1 WRs. (All of whom do not act like divas!)

    Enjoy it while it lasts, fellow fans.

  26. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Not sure what happened to Godwin but Eagkes took away deep ball which takes Evan’s out of the game. AB just has the it factor! Nice problem to have unless Godwin and Evan’s get jealous and shut down.
