Breshad Perriman Sparks Bucs Offense

January 9th, 2022


The first few minutes of the game the Bucs offense looked it was just waking up from a long night in Ybor City.

And leave it to a guy who wasn’t good enough the past couple of years for the lowlife Jets, the toothless Lions and the sad Bears to snap the Bucs out of their funk.

With 43 seconds left in the first hald, the Bucs had a first down on the Stinking Panthers-28 trailing 7-3. Brady went back, threw to his right and Breshad Perriman seemed to expect the ball slightly to his inside as he ran towards the right sideline.

But Brady threw it back-shoulder. Perriman spun around and in one move not just caught the ball but somehow tapped both feet inbounds and hung on to give the Bucs a first-and-goal at the Stinking Panthers-4.

Two plays later Le’Veon Bell caught a pass in the short right flat from Tom Brady and the Bucs never looked back.

Not only was Perriman’s play one of the best catches of the season, Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians said that play sparked the previously stagnant Bucs offense.

And now the Bucs are the No. 2 seed in the NFC!

Arians said he had all the confidence in the world that the offense would snap out of it when they went hurry-up. Taking over after a goal-line stand with 1:48 left in the first half, Arians said he decided it was the right time to go hurry-up.

The Bucs ran something of an uptempo offense the rest of the game. And look at the result, even down so many receivers.

Maybe the Bucs might want to use that offense to start a game?

    Someone said that was a bad pass by brady to perriman. 😂

    I mean he was covered. Defender a few yards away. Brady thru an absolute dime piece on that back shoulder. What like 35 yards?

    We do have some horrible fans

    An absolute dime! WTF?

    Spectacular grab from the former UCF Knight!

  4. Miller5252 Says:

    They need to go back into the hurry up offense. Brady runs it so much better, just throw in some draws.

    Best catch is still Evans high ball in the end zone from Brady.

  5. lambchop Says:

    BPs toe tap catch was unreal. So hard and he made it look…..hard. LOL. There was nothing easy about that catch. Brady threw it where only he could get it. But, it probably could have been in a little more and not have been such a difficult sideline grab.

  6. Cobraboy Says:

    One of the greatest catches I’ve seen. Fantastic!

  7. Dew Says:

    I like to remind people. He ran a 4.19 40 at his combine. That’s insane.

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    Who said the Bucs are depleted of weapons?

    I don’t see it AND they still got Brady.

    Bring on the playoffs!

    Just STOP that. He ran a 4.52 at the combine.
    A scout said he hand timed him at 4.19 and at his pro day he ran a 4.26, also not timed as the combine is. Just stop
    I would post the link but it is as easy as googling “Breshad Perriman combine results”

  11. Cobraboy Says:

    @SB: Many players do not show what they really have at the combine, including that hallowed 40 time.A 4.19 to 4.26 hand timed by guys who do that all the time is as credible as the combine 40.

    He may not be a 4.16 guy, but he’s a helluva lot faster than a 4.53, and his track record shows he routinely beats “fast” DB’s deep…and the latter is all that matters.

    Watching this now, on my huge PC monitor, I see why I thought that wasn’t even close to a catch. I thought the white glove of the Panthers player was Perriman’s foot, so I thought it wasn’t even close. On a small screen that all got cramped together. Wow, what a difference size makes.

  13. PSL Bob Says:

    This is not Perriman’s first time to step up. I remember a few years ago when he was brought in and had some excellent games when both Evans and Godwin were out. Jameis and he connected on some great plays. I think his mojo works best when he’s in a Buc’s uniform.

  14. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    We’ve seen this offense click every time we’ve gone hurry up. Now that we are down Godwin and AB, it’s time to keep busting it out! It gives Brady more control, and the predictable BL less. GO BUCS

  15. DaBux Says:

    I said before the game he would be the surprise/key player today. While he wasn’t targeted a lot, when the game was on the line, he made THE CATCH. TB12 will give him a lot more looks now.

  16. David Says:

    Absolutely brilliant pass by Brady. Put it the only place he possibly could. Phenomenal catch.

    After watching Manning and Drew Brees have their arms fall off at the end.
    Now this year watching Big Ben barely be able to throw it past 30 yards, what Brady is doing is incredible.

    We’re all a bunch of lazy slobs for not following the TB12 routine, it obviously works!!

  17. David Says:


    I feel I should say “that’s what she said”

    based on your last sentence…

  18. SKBucsFan Says:

    Perriman is the real deal. He played exceptional his fist time here. No reason to believe he can’t contribute in a big way again.

    I see that also, but then I also see articles saying he didn’t run at the combine because of a hamstring, his only 40-time was at his proday, where he was officially clocked, by hand, at 4.25, while one scout had him 4.19.

    Not sure where the 4.52 number comes from, but I do see it out there as saying it was a combine number, but apparently that’s not the case.

  20. bucschamp Says:

    his stock just went up after that catch. that was amazing

  21. Wild Bill Says:

    The Bucs sure needed that “spark”!!!! Why the slow starts for this team? We plod along looking flat until a sense of urgency finally takes over and Brady takes over! Why can’t the Bucs open their games with that same urgency?
