It Doesn’t Look Good For Washington

November 11th, 2021

Red hot after bye week.

Yes, the Bucs are coming off a bye. And it’s hard to get a read on what to expect from WTF, the Bucs’ opponent this Sunday, because they too had a bye last weekend.

Joe cannot remember the Bucs coming off a bye and facing another team in the same boat.

Well, Rick Gosselin of typed a brief except of where each team stands as the NFL enters Week 10. And the following nugget should not really surprise Bucs fans.

It seems a win is damn near in the bag when you give two weeks of preparation time to 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.

Give QB Tom Brady an extra week of rest and he’s golden. Brady personally is 15-4 in his career coming off byes. He has won each of the last four seasons coming off byes.

So Brady wins 79 percent of his games coming off a bye, and his career regular-season winning percentage is 77 percent. It’s all so mind-blowing.

Just looking at the NFL rankings of the WTF defense, the Bucs ought to carve these guys up. Joe finds it very interesting that the Washington defensive front has so many first-round picks, yet struggles getting after the quarterback.

Jack Del Rio is the defensive coordinator of the WTF. His pupil was Mike Smith, the former notorious Bucs defensive coordinator who couldn’t buy a sack for his defensive line.

Guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    No godwin, Gronk, AB etc. Evans is the only consistent wideout. Whose gonna step up on sunday? They better not lose that game. Could be a close game.

    I’m thankful they finally stopped prattling on about Chase Young

    Thought Bucs were going to be fairly healthy coming off the bye, but it does not look like it.

    Well at least we know Brady is Golden. Question is will we still need 30 points or more?

  7. William Walls Says:

    I thought Jack Del Rio did a great job in Jax in his first at-bat. It’s a shame that he hadn’t had much success since then as I really liked him as a player.

  8. Swampbuc Says:

    We are without AB. Without Gronl. Godwin has a foot injury. Pump the breaks on this “easy game.”

    The WTF will double Mike and force Tyler Johnson, Brate and OJ Howard to beat them. Those dudes better be ready.

    And run the damn ball.

  9. Defense Rules Says:

    OK I’m bewildered Joe. If they now call themselves the Washington Football Team, where did the acronym ‘WTF’ come from? Keep seeing that over & over. Why not ‘WFT’ instead?

    Noticed BTW that Adam Humphries now plays for Washington (1 yr deal). Apparently Tennessee didn’t quite turn out like Adam expected (4 yr deal but was released after 2 yrs, and barely saw the field in his 2nd year there).

  10. GOATWatcher Says:

    He has a winning percentage of 76 percent (34-11) in the playoff against the NFL’s elite teams.

    F_ _ _

    Kinda like BSPN
    is my guess.

  12. JA Says:


    The correct usage is β€˜WFT.’
    The oft incorrect usage you referenced is referred to as a case of β€˜dyslexic acronym assemblage.’

  13. JA Says:

    Or … a purposeful, profane mocking of the name change by a Joe. We all know what comes to mind when someone types ‘WTF.’

  14. Defense Rules Says:

    JA … Can we just abbreviate that as DAA? Oh wait, I swapped the A’s around. My bad.

  15. Defense Rules Says:

    Swampbuc … Assuming that WTF (or whoever they are) doubles Mike, then Brate, OJ & TJ will eat them alive. Of course, that’s assuming they get the ball very much after Gio & Fournette get their touches. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see a 50-50 run-pass split in this game, with a LOT of short passes to Gio (87% catch %) and Fournette (77% catch %).

    @”…So Brady wins 79 percent of his games coming off a bye, and his career regular-season winning percentage is 77 percent. It’s all so mind-blowing….”
    yeah impressive, but he needs someone out there to catch his passes!!!!!
    he can not through, and catch in the same time…
    by adding CG to NON play list, all his preferred target are out.
    ME can not carry the team, he makes explosive plays, but he drops when eh should not.
    So this game from winnable became questionable. πŸ€”

  17. DoooshLaRue Says:

    This is where a real OC earns his money.
    Scheme to whatever players/strengths are available.
    Others teams do it to us frequently.

    Earn it MASTERMIND.

  18. Pickgrin Says:

    WFT/WTF are officially hereafter to be referred to as the FORESKINS

  19. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I don’t like this game at all. Evans on an island by himself has injury written all over it. This team kept it very close in playoffs with a healthy offense.
