    Great discussions, guys, as usual. Here are a few comments more.

    Smoke bombs can cause a whole lot of smoke without much fire behind them. National pundits have their own agendas with each of their stories.

    Arians may not like QB competitions but he gave-in on Antonia Brown in spite of what he had said previously. Also in the long run (a mere year and a half) it bit him and the team in the arse. … TB was also wrong about relying on AB when he was needed most.

    The Bucs will be in competition for Aaron Rodgers and/or Deshaun Watson if either somehow becomes available.

    Go Bucs!

    I just read that Tampa Bay is one of 2 teams Watson is considering.

    Steve, thanks for pointing out that UCF is the biggest university in Florida with regard to student enrollment. UF no doubt has a larger alumni base, but UCF’s is growing fast. Now that UCF is moving to the Big 12, things are only going to get better for them. Maybe in the 2023 draft, the Bucs can draft Dillon Gabriel at QB. He is a Hawaiian version of Drew Brees. He’ll no doubt be the starting QB for Oklahoma this season.

    A great indicator of Brady returning to the Bucs is whether or not he has moved completely out of his home on Davis Island. Does anyone have insight on this?

  5. HC Grover Says:

    Bucco Bruce is what I think is the Brady problem.

    This team is really not very good without Brady. IMO Saints have better talent. People are going to find out that this team is back to a little less than mediocre

    Has anyone heard any explanation on why Todd’s Bowels went so batcrap insane on the play calling in the final 30 seconds? Any explanation for why the players either didn’t know what to do or how to do it, or what their mates were supposed to do? And comment about why LVD was just standing there holding his Pud?

    Until something is written or said about this I will keep asking. Abominations must be prevented from happening again.

    Excellent point made by Joe Bucs (I think it was Steve) about Glazers and their sponsors. I agree that the Glazers may want a big name QB.
