All 25 Experts Omit Tom Brady, Todd Bowles From Season Honors Vote

September 3rd, 2022

This reminds Joe of when 36 of Peter King’s closest friends stiffed Buccaneers GM Jason Licht.

How could 10 NFL head coaches get a 2022 Coach of the Year prediction vote from 25 experts   — media types and former players — and not one coach is Todd Bowles?

Joe’s not sure. So not one thinks the Bucs will march to 13 wins again? That’s rather odd considering three of those same experts pick Tampa Bay to win the Super Bowl, and about 75 percent picked the Bucs to win the NFC South.

Even more rich is Tom Brady not getting one vote from the 25-person panel predicting him to be the 2022 MVP or offensive player of the year.

Joe was glad to hear a voice of reason talking about some of this data on SiriusXM NFL Radio. That would be former Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik.

Dominik made it clear that he believes every thinking expert should have the Bucs as his or her projected winner of the NFC South. For Dominik, it’s very much about Tom Brady’s impact versus Jameis Winston’s.

But imagine that; not one “expert” thinks Brady will win MVP, while seven — Seven! — quarterbacks not named Brady received votes.

    They hate us cuz they ain’t us

    “NFL experts” my ass

  2. gp Says:

    Stack those chips!

  3. Crickett Baker Says:

    I am astonished. It hardly makes sense. We win the SB and the next year we win the division. What do they possibly think?

  4. WillieG Says:

    Bowles is in a no win situation. If he wins, it’s because of Brady. If he loses, he took a Super Bowl team and broke it. He could go 15-2 and not get Coach of the Year.

    As for Brady? He too could go 15-2 and not get recognized. I truly believe the NFL wants to put its new(er)players on the MVP stage. Plus, lots of writers are just tired of Brady.

  5. Pigsueybucsfan Says:

    Monkey couldn’t have said it better “experts my ass” Todd will be coach of the year and I hope they won’t steal mvp from Tom again. GO Bucs!

  6. gotbbucs Says:

    Brady with a chip on his shoulder and drama in his life probably equals the most cold blooded killer on the gridiron you could ever imagine.

  7. Rick Says:

    As long as it motivates TB12 I’m thrilled

    I fully believe it’s Brady that turned this franchise around and no one played a bigger role in its success than him. However, there are absolutely scenarios where Bowles could deserve COTY that are not far-fetched, and he will likely get screwed. This D has the potential to absolutely dominate, and the offence too may be better if the rumours about arians screwing with game plans at the last minute last season are true. The team could really go 15-2 (unlikely, but possible) and Bowles would absolutely deserve the award unless Jacksonville dominates or something equally crazy allowing another coach to stand out. It’s too bad, but let ppl keep doubting the bucs. Brady will harness all of that and they’ll be even better.

    Btw, last time Brady had off-field issues dealing with the drama of deflate gate, being suspended 4 games (because the nfl doesn’t get basic chemistry) and his mother’s cancer, he led the greatest comeback in NFL history to win yet another super bowl. Bring on rings number 3 and 8.

    Go bucs!

  10. Orlando Kevin Says:

    How often are “experts” right with predictions? And specifically these “experts”? And that doesn’t mean anything about wins.

  11. Bobby M. Says:

    Awesome….give Brady more motivation.

  12. Mike Says:

    nfl dot wrong

  13. BigMacAttack Says:

    I just hope the officiating is good this season and they don’t show us the same hate and biased calls they did last season and every other season since forever. I just want games called fairly and evenly. I want officials to be held accountable for bad calls, missed calls they’re looking right at and biased calls like that pos Hockley Jr made, personal foul on TB12 in the NFC championship game. It was wrong. It was out of line. There is no such thing as a good fair NFL ref. They all S u Kkkkkkkkl

  14. BigMacAttack Says:

    Not trying to hijack thread but hate for the Bucs runs deep.

  15. Buczilla Says:

    Lol, I’m not surprised since the bias against our team has been there from the beginning from all of the meathead media up north and it will never change. Hopefully, we’ll be laughing our way to another super bowl win this year.

  16. Mikejp Says:

    Funny experts! Players vote Tom as the number 1 player but these funny experts do not?

  17. 1sparkybuc Says:

    It’s not hate. It’s just disrespect.

  18. Bucsfan Says:

    Tom Brady is the second mvp betting choice in every sportsbook I looked at. Fanduel Brady is tied with Mahomes for second plus 800. Josh Allen is favorite

  19. SteelStudBuc Says:

    #1 on the Top 100

    Brady’s gonna put this team on his back and carry the Bucs to a Superbowl victory and retire for good, Superbowl MVP, and NFL MVP.

  20. Craig Says:

    Nothing can piss off a football player then to say they aren’t good enough.

    The idiots at NFL network will stand by their BS, even if the Bucs blow it out of the water.

    Maybe it is enough to keep Brady and the band around for another season.

  21. JimmyJack Says:

    As always you can take the experts lists and ranking and wipe your rearend with them.

  22. Allen Lofton Says:

    Peter King is an arrogant self-endowed egotist who makes statements so out of character to what TB and the Bucs do on the field. Other sports journalists simply fellow in step for fear of hurting their careers. The Bucs are by far a much more complete team compared to everyone.

    They simply just need to play together – communicate – and believe that they are the best and will be raising the Lombardy Trophy again.

  23. RagdollMama Says:

    Bring it on! That will.just give Brady more fuel to torch everyone this season! I hope it is his best ever and wins his 8th Super Bowl! #LFG GOAT. These so called “experts” will never learn! You do not bet against the GOAT TB12! It takes more than numbers on a sheet to make you great!

    Since 76!

  25. Bucsfan Says:

    Another thing why did Gisele pull this non sense before the season. This maybe Brady’s last season and she is ruining by telling everyone she is mad cause he came back. The night Brady announced Gisele said something go bucs here we go again lovey. Why didnt she leave Brady then.

    Gisele will never leave Brady, Read all tabloids they say she is a bully and controls everything Brady does but not football. She is staying because her life goal is to get him to quit playing. There is a movie about Brian Wilson its called Love and Mercy. Brian Wilson is trapped snd being controlled. The only thing Brady has control over in his life is playing football. Giseles dream to get him to retire almost had her wish. Gisele is worth so much money a lot more than even celebrity net worth says. They say 400 million. She has been stuck at 400 million for like 8 years on that website

  26. TampabayDJ82 Says:

    Funny how they just had Brady as the NUMBER 1 player in the NFL ! And that was voted by all the players in the NFL , but they posted and all those same “EXPERTS” were saying that he is the best player in football , not because of the 23 years in the league , it was for NOW/TODAY/ THIS SEASON !! They are almost as bad as BSPN … At least Steven A Smith has the balls to argue with anyone who dare says anything bad about Brady.. Go Bucs

  27. SOEbuc Says:

    Brady being robbed MVP last year because Rodgers had less INT, it’s a pro bowl vote. Really need to make those votes after Super Bowl. Everyone except Brady and the Bucs are jealous. Jealous of his game. Jealous of his media attention and the money made from it.

  28. CharlieV Says:

    Some call them “experts” others call them fools.

  29. BucfaninMi Says:

    What’s new? They never get respect, even with Brady there.

  30. steele Says:

    So if the mediots unanimously declare that the Bucs will win the SB undefeated, Tom Brady #1 player, and T Bowles #1 coach? So what? Hot air. Meaningless. Noise to fill in the hours. Fake sports news, to be turned off.

  31. Proudbucsfan Says:

    We win the super bowl this year, every year we have won, it’s been years with only 2s and Os I’m going to place a $100 bet in Vegas that we go undefeated. We make history this year and Brady rides off in The sunset.

  32. gp Says:

    Truly the fools bet
    With the way Brady treats “chips” I’m kinda with ya!

    Except that Tommy still wants that threepeat, the hattrick so to say, not saying it’s enough to keep him playing, but…..

  33. Kentucky Buc Says:

    If you’ve been paying attention the media boys are pushing the Eagles and Bills this year among a few others but mostly those two. H3II, I even saw Hurts listed as a MVP candidate. That’s this years narrative so far.

  34. Lefty Says:

    Maybe it’s all pre-determined not unlike the elections in our country nowadays…

  35. George Says:

    No votes for Brady as MVP is pretty easy to understand . Brady will have lousy statistics and a losing record because the Bucs have no brought in proper injury replacements to offensive line. Very easy to see that .

    As to Bowles he demonstrates his lack of coaching ability over 5 years with the Jets . He made a terrible play call that cost The Bucs the Rams game and still things he made the right call to this day. He showed no common sense by playing our remaining experienced offensive lineman in meaningless exhibitions and getting them hurt. Why would any one with any intelligent vote for him

  36. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    George please there was nothing wrong with that call. It was forced because the PLAYERS allowed Kupp to go out of bounds the previous play which stopped the clock which is a major no no in 1 minute defense. They keep him in bounds the clock runs out and the game would have went into over time end of story. You people with your narrative against Bowles before he coaches the team in the regular season are stupendous. If he hadn’t blitzed that last play you and all the others would be crying why he didn’t. If the line struggles in the season and he didn’t play them you’d be crying about not playing them enough. Jensen got injured in practice. What??? You wanna blame Bowles for that to??? Just stop

  37. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    Maybe because Bowles was a terrible head coach for years and you know he won’t be calling or having anything to do with the offense… So in reality, what’s the difference from last year to this? He’s basically a glorified defensive coordinator!! … Now Brady not being considered for MVP is just stupid I mean he can earn that any year!! But I’m still worried that this O-line will get Brady hurt before mid-season!… How do you beat Brady? Rush him successfully up the middle? Where’s the weakest BY FAR part of this team? The front 3 on the O-line!! … Really hope these guys are better than in thinking they are!! One of the guys they still have that came in a few plays for Smith last year was a turnstile!! What’s his name?

  38. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    If BA didn’t get Coach of the Year here, Bowles isn;t.

    But really, who cares? What matters is the ring.

  39. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    BucfaninMi Says
    “What’s new? They never get respect, even with Brady there.”

    Exactly. The only way for that to change is if we end up with a really good drafted QB and we win superbowls without Brady. That said, I’ll take SBs with Brady as long as we can!

    On a side note…when Dungy was here we got respect…but that went right out the window with that video of him loading his stuff in the rain.

  40. garro Says:

    As I rember it the Bucs got no respect from the “media” or calls from the refs in 2002 even though we were loaded with fantastic players. I remember thinking after reading that Sapp was pissed about it that we would have to beat the teams and the refs…we did

  41. Defense Rules Says:

    Bonzai … ‘If BA didn’t get Coach of the Year here, Bowles isn’t. But really, who cares? What matters is the ring.’

    B-I-N-G-O! Personal accolades are nice for the individual, but TEAM success is the REAL bottom line. I don’t know Todd Bowles personally, but from all I’ve read about him, he’s about TEAM. And for those who ridiculously keep throwing up his 4 years as NY Jets HC, if you don’t have the horses, you’re not gonna win the chariot race.

    Tom Brady doesn’t NEED another POTY award; he KNOWS who he is and so do we. Folks could show a little EMPATHY that he & Giselle & their 3 kids are going through some really tough family times. Hopefully it all works out for them as a family because that’s a lot more important than 1 more year of personal success.

  42. BucsfanFred Says:

    This is our year.

  43. adam from ny Says:

    giselle trying to bring tommy b down is either going to literally make him crash and burn, or make him level up a notch (if that’s even possible) to shove it up his wife’s bonzai…

    it’s one or the other…

    tommy b does not = mediocrity



  44. August 1976 Buc Says:

    lol lol Who really cares, I will take winning a 3rd Lombardi for the Team and Bradys 8th, over any of these things.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  45. Goatwatcher Says:

    No. 1. Quit the cheap whining about Gisselle. You don’t know. No.2. Coming from New England, this chatter about “everyone hates us” sure sounds familiar.

  46. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Gotbucs# 100% on target and the first time ever I agree with Anonymous, awards mean dick, the Lombardi is the goal. If Brady didn’t win MVP last season or 2020 he ain’t getting it this year unless he throws for 5500 yds and 60 teddies with a passer rating of 115. I do disagree, if Bucs go 15-2 and has a top 10 D, Bowles may have a chance, sadly though that’s what it would take.

  47. David Says:


  48. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I meant first time I agreed with August not Anonymous.

  49. August 1976 Buc Says:

    lol List, Its Super Bowl or bust. 2nd place is the first loser.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  50. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Not 100% sure August but one might consider your last post a bit NEGATIVE!

  51. LakelandSteve Says:

    It used to be the Patriots that everyone loved to hate, just because they consistently beat everyone’s behinds year after year. Now it’s the Bucs. Is it the Tom Brady effect? Or is it the Bucs won the Super Bowl two years ago and had such a great record last year? I don’t know, but there are a lot more people hating on the Bucs and that’s a good thing. The Bucs play a lot better when everyone isn’t telling them how great they are and they start getting trashed more and more. So being on the haters!

  52. Who Dat Says:

    Brady will not play the entire season.

  53. JayBuc Says:

    You think Brady gives a fudge about Pro Bowls and MVPs???

  54. Trey Long Says:

    Football pundit is an oxymoron. Other than government bureaucrat, what job pays well for
    Being wrong 80% of the time?

  55. gp Says:

    Weather forecaster?

  56. Alvafan Says:

    I can see Bowles not getting any votes but Brady?? Did these guys vote for MVP last year? May be why he didn’t win it in 2021

  57. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Super Bowl or bust. There is only 1 winner if the Lombardi is the goal. 2nd place is the first of 31 other losers. That is not negative, that is a statistical fact. I said to you List about facing life as it is, and not being negative and bummed out about crap, that happens, whether in sports or in life period. That is the very opposite of being negative.

    GO BUCS!!!!

  58. Goatfarmer Says:

    We should also be offended that none of them mentioned Jaelon Dardon or Kyle Trask.
