Eliminate The Speed Bumps And Bucs Will Be Fine

July 17th, 2022


This really never occurred to Joe until recently and it is pretty interesting if not sickening.

Last year the Bucs lost to three teams. The slimy Saints twice. The Rams twice. And the Deadskins.

(Is Joe allowed to type “Deadskins,” Mr. Google?)

It is just about mind-numbing to Joe how the greatest quarterback of all time is 0-4 in the regular season against the slimy Saints since coming to the Bucs. And also since coming to the Bucs, Brady is 0-3 against the Rams.

If the Bucs somehow can end this hex, Joe believes the Bucs will do just fine. Let’s say the Bucs go 2-1 in the three games against those two teams? Win at least two of those three games and the Bucs should be on their way to winning the NFC South.

The Deadskins? Joe cannot explain that mess of a loss. #Sad

    It’s not just Brady…..our defense had a part in those losses….except for the 9-0 loss to New Orleans last year.

    It’s simple to see for me and other fans, Sean Payton is a great coach. Yes I hated saying that.

  5. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Ehh. Regular season is overrated. Play good enough to get a high seed and worry about the playoffs . I mean , the Bucs were a play away from the Super Bowl imo. That’s without Godwin and AB. Yeah , I know they still had to win the next game to get there but I fully believe they would’ve. Keeping everyone healthy at the end is the key.

    Todd. Bowles.

  7. PA Buc Fan Says:

    He is 28-3 as a buc starter if you take away his 0-3 vs rams and 1-4 vs saints in his first 2 years in Tampa. That’d pretty incredible. They need to fix this rams/Saints crap this year!

    Some teams just have other teams’ number for some reason.
    Since 1998, Dallas is 0-7 vs Denver
    Since 2016, Jacksonville is 2-10 vs Tennessee.
    Bucs have a recent problem with Rams, Saints and Heinicke

    Unless Todd Bowles and company game plan differently against the Saints and Rams, I predict that we will see the same outcome as the last two years…and we will be 0-3 against them at 2022 regular season end.

    These teams are matchup nightmares for the Bucs, and yet to most observers the Bucs appear to employ no unique game plan strategy that we counter these teams matchup advantages. Might I opine… that is the definition of insanity.
    Even before the arrival of Todd Bowles and TB, we struggled against these teams. The Bucs last regular season win against the Saints was Sept. 9, 2018.
    WE have lost 7 straight regular season games since to the Aints.
    Against the Rams, we have lost three straight regular season games since Sept 29, 2019.

    Wait,…I think I’ve got it…why not run up the middle on 1st down!! They would never expect that.

    17-0. Play dolphins in SB. Squish the fish.

    Losing to the Saints, Rams AND WFT isn’t all that hard to understand. All 3 teams beat us up in the trenches on BOTH sides of the ball. Last year we lost 5 times to those 3 teams.

    o They whooped us in forcing Turnovers 9-5 (and 4 of our 5 takeaways came in the Rams playoff game, so we really sucked before that).

    o They whooped us creating sacks 13-11 (and 5 of our 11 sacks made came in the WFT game, so we really sucked in those other 4 games too).

    o They whooped us in Time of Possession 167:07 – 133:33, meaning that in those 5 games our opponents held the ball for an average of almost 5 minutes LONGER than we did in each game. That does wonders for hurting defenses.

    But those losses weren’t just because those opponents were more physical than we were on the field. We also got out-coached in each of those games, big-time. Offensively, our opponents out-rushed us 151-75 in those 5 games … and that largely explains the TOP disparity. Our offense also made more ‘errors’ than our opponents did, and our defense didn’t adequately counter. Injuries obviously played a part in that, but a larger reason IMO was DEPTH. Bucs had a very starting roster, but our depth was meh at best. We’ve ended up playing too many hurt starters (JPP & others) and that’s not a prescription for success against teams who are strong in the trenches.

    Not hard to understand at all…prior to comming to bucs , brady was 4-1 against the Saint..bradys style of play ” do what the defensive gives will beat a pass rush..in other words shotgun 6man protection 2 te set and motion..it seems with BA it was under center with 5 man protection holding ball for receivers..and it seems was always with the good pass rush teams…maybe coincidence or maybe subconsciously a jealous BA wanted to show brady up…so now that brady and BL are free from interference I believe brady style of make the defense defend every blade changes those dynamics..afterall how does brady make comebacks..the protections change

    DefenseRules said it all. Read and repeat.

    Sean Payton is probably game planning for us right now. I know, I know, he retired but he’s loved beating the Bucs ever since Gruden got here with his big contract and ridiculous draft pick package. He has sacrificed wins against other teams to keep his record of being a Buc killer and he’ll be sending Allen plenty of tips to thwart Brady and the Bucs this year too.
