Derrick Brooks: I’m Picking The Cowboys

September 11th, 2022


Talk about a punch to your Bucs-loving gut.

Buccaneers legend Derrick Brooks believes the Cowboys will beat our beloved Buccaneers tonight, so he explained on TAMPA TWO, seen here on your favorite website.

“I’m picking the Cowboys. You look at last year and how things went in that game and really, did the Bucs [escape] more so than Dallas — that game could have gone either way. Dallas doesn’t fear this team,” Brooks began. “At home. Everything that’s coming, the expectations and the team they are now, I expect the Cowboys to win. … I don’t think this game is going to have an impact on how the Bucs finish by no means; because you don’t win or lose a Super Bowl in Week 1. But I just think Dallas gets off to a 1-o start because I think right now, going into this game, the confidence in their defense versus the many questions on our offense, I’m leaning advantage Dallas.”


Joe agrees with Brooks that Dallas has no fear of the Bucs and won’t be intimidated or nervous. But Joe doesn’t believe the Cowboys have the talent to go toe-to-toe with the Bucs all game without the benefit of forcing multiple turnovers. And who can predict turnovers?

Plus, Joe thinks/hopes the Bucs are better coached. Kickoff at 8:20 p.m. You know where to find Mr. Brooks on Twitter.

  8. LVMYBUCS Says:

    I dont listen to these clowns any more exspecally after all the “washed up” talk about Brady and then he takes us to the SB

  9. Rod Munch Says:

    1-12 all-time in Dallas.

    Not worried, even if we lose, last time the lost on the road to open the season they won the SB.

    Hell, even the 2002 all-time Bucs lost the opener before winning the SB.

  10. Mike Says:

    Sounds like maybe Jerry Jones has some blackmail photos on Brooks or something. Can’t believe he would not go with the Bucs as the pick. That’s just crazy coming from one of our all time greats.

  11. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Whateva!!!!! GO BUCS!!!!!

  12. Patrick grems Says:

    He a clown … next article

  13. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Rod Brady is 6-0 against the Cowboys. He also had a winning record against the Saints before he joined us. I’m not expecting much from us. Our OL scares me. Dallas will be able to get pressure with 4 and play coverage. That has frustrated Brady in his career. That’s ONLY if the team has the talent to do it. The Cowboys do

  14. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    inactive for Bucs…

    Zion, Miller, Vaughn, Rudolph, Fred Johnson & Trask….

    So…..Godwin is a go…….Scotty is a no……

  15. MonkeyMan Says:

    Bucs win 38-13

    Brady throw for 400+ plus yards
    4 tuddies
    0 interceptions

  16. Cometowin2 Says:

    I agree he’s wrong but the man’s definitely not a clown. Top 5 or so favorite Buc all time.

    Go Bucs!

  17. Jerseybuc Says:

    Wow! Really brooks? Bucs aren’t afraid of them either or playing in Dallas. Handle parsons no body else really scares you. Really believe Dallas don’t have the firepower to keep up if we’re rolling

  18. MadMax Says:

    Haha, whatever….Rams sucking, packers sucking right now….who knows.

    I think we win a close one as long as the O line holds up.

  19. geno711 Says:

    Derrick seems to be getting more like the old crotchety seniors.
    Always thinking negatively.

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucsfan13 – I actually do think the Bucs win a very sloppy and ugly game, but I can certainly see us losing it as well and can completely understand people picking a home team in what might be a ugly game.

    BUT, history is what is is. While I felt absolutely 100% certain the Bucs would lose @Chicago in 2020 (history told us that would happen), I’m not 100% on this one. Also history shows that the last time the Bucs opened on the road in Dallas, that’s the 1 in 1-12.

    Hopefully the Bucs win by 30 and Brady has over 500 yards passing on his way to the first ever 6000-yard season.

  21. JA Says:

    I can’t wait when they both wrong.
    Hope I’m wright …
    Brady throw for 400+ plus yards.

    Who can argue with those lucid prognostications and a sincere wish?
    Without a doubt the experts reside here.
    Dallas doesn’t have a chance!

  22. Defense Rules Says:

    The biggest thing I’m concerned about is playing them at night. Historically Bucs have been terrible at night (3-9 for 8 PM games during the 2015-2020 years).

    But then last year something happened … we had 5 night games and won 4 of them (our only loss was to New Orleans at home). So since 2015 the Bucs are 7-10 for the late games, BUT … we’re on a roll.

  23. ModHairKen Says:

    Ah what does he know?

  24. Capt.Tim Says:

    Brooks knows football.
    Better than any poster here.
    But I hope hes wrong

    You cant lose Antonio Brown, Gronk, Ali Marpet, Alex Cappa, Ryan Jensen, and Jordan Whitehead- replace them with lesser, inexperienced players, and expect to be as good as last year.

    Not to mention we lost Arians(great Coach), and got Bowles(bad Coach)

    No way we are as good as last year.
    Too many great players are gone

  25. David Says:

    I get it and he wants to be objective but the Bucs weapons are better. The defense should be better at every level. The question is left guard.
    The Cowgirls are not as good on offense

  26. firethecannons Says:

    he was wrong last year too

  27. EA Says:


  28. Pete Says:

    Bucs 31
    Cowboys 17

  29. Buczilla Says:

    In spite of Brooks going fsu he’s still my favorite player ever. He’s off his rocker with this dumb prediction though.

  30. Bucs Win Says:

    Only an idiot cares where a Bucs player went to college.

  31. Oneilbuc Says:

    Defense wins championships !!!
