Brady Magic Delivers A 16-13 Bucs Win

November 6th, 2022

What a gut-wrenching and ugly win — and Joe is loving every damn second of it!!

Somehow the Bucs flipped a switch on their final drive with less than a minute to play. Finally, Tom Brady turned on his trademark magic.

And he worked much of it with Scotty Miller and rookie tight end Cade Otton.

Our beloved Bucs had a “mini-bye” to prepare for a miserable Rams team and came out uninspired at home. The offense wasn’t fixed and it even looked worse than in previous weeks.

The Bucs didn’t look well coached. The defense was strong but a lot of that was the anemic Rams, and the defense was gutted by a handful of big plays.

Miller nearly was a gut-wrenching goat (not the good kind) after dropping a touchdown pass on the second-to-last drive. But he got a shot to redeem himself on the game-winning drive and picked up key yardage before a Otton caught the game-winner with seconds to play after  Mike Evans drew a pass interference penalty.

Joe is not sure what was learned about the Bucs tonight, other than that they’re still alive, Brady has no fold in him, and the team doesn’t know how to use the challenge flag. But now they’re in first place in the NFC South at 4-5 and owning the tiebreaker with the Falcons.

They’re in the hunt!

Maybe, just maybe, this will inspire the team and the coaches to make necessary changes, especially the uncomfortable kind.

Props to Vita Vea for a monster game. The Bucs will need more of that without Shaq Barrett. Take a bow, Ryan Succop and Jake Camarda.

    Hey Todd, there’s a turd in your punch Bowles and his name is Byron.
    Fire him immediately if you want to stay employed.

  2. SKBucsFan Says:

    Can TB12 just take over play calling? I’m sure some equipment guy can remove the speaker from his helmet.

  3. AmauryGuzman Says:

    It’s a start but this team has no discipline whatsoever. Need to get back to 500 next week desperately. I still have doubts with this team because of our weak coaches.

  4. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Fire Leftwich

  5. Austin Christopher Lewis Says:

    Now just do that during the duration of the game lol

  6. AmauryGuzman Says:

    I hope we get back Jensen soon.

  7. Leighroy Says:

    Runs on 1st down all but 1 play 1st half except during the 2-minute drill. Brady is not throwing deep, getting the ball out fast, easily spooked. Teams are wise to the Godwin screen.

    A win masks a bad offense. Yes the offense only showed up for last minute and flipped a switch indeed. The defense played very well except for 2 gross deep passes allowed to Kupp.

  8. Mrsandman Says:

    That was terrible. Fire byron

  9. HawaiianBuc Says:


  10. BucsBro Says:

    Ugly as hell, but the GOAT got it done.

    Note to Byron — use White more in the run game.

  11. Dewey Selmon Says:

    You better thank the defense and punter for keeping Brady in the game and giving him a chance.

  12. Rod Munch Says:

    That last drive proved what a worthless POS Leftwich is with his stupid, God awful play calling where you’re wasting every 1st and 2nd down with 1 yard plays.

    Get him out of the equation, attack the defense, and shock, this looks like the NFL’s highest scoring defense from 2019-2021, instead of the garbage that Leftwich has done this year.

    This game should pour even more fire on the movement to remove Leftwich from the team. He’s a one man wrecking crew, tanking the season.

  13. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Cade Otton sold his block beautifully and then got open for a easy TD. Nice job Cade!

  14. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Bowles is very good DC but a very poor HC…and that’s being nice about it

  15. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Yes BRADY not those two dumb as head coaches

  16. BucsBro Says:

    Byron is a horrendous, horrendous coach. Bowles may not be a lot better, but Byron is the worst.

    It’s a shame because I think Byron is a good guy, but his playcalling is unbelievably bad and predictable.

    The Glazers really need to alter the staff.

  17. DrunkinYbor Says:

    Winningly ugly or winning pretty still = a win… Looks like we’re back in time to 1997

  18. Listnfrmafar Says:

    FU Oneilsuckyall, beano, CMURDA, Tampabaybucsfan, SOEbuc, oralbuc, YUC YUC, Youngbuc and the of you haters. How about Bowels didn’t blitz the last play. Leftnut still has to go if this team has any chance.

  19. Ash Says:

    Camarda was a monster out there probably MVP of the game lol kinda said but a win is a win guess what playaction works even if you suck at running the ball go bucs

  20. Jmarkbuc Says:

    BA needs to come downstairs..

  21. R0n@Tampa Says:

    Like I said before you win this game and I know they would. It changes the narrative. Bucs are back to being the team to beat in the nfl and a 3rd sb champion.

  22. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Defense played good.

    Bullet points to save Bucs season:

    * Make sure Hicks never misses a game
    * Fire Leftwich
    * Move Bowles to DC and return BA to HC
    * Fire Leftwich
    * Have Brady call plays with help from remaining offensive staff
    * Get Jensen back
    * Fire Leftwich
    * Fire Leftwich
    * Fire Leftwich

  23. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Thankfully they got lucky, but the D played well and remember they played the worst offensive team in the NFL.. Our coaching staff as well as this team is still really bad boys

  24. kgh4life Says:

    The Bucs are lucky to squeak out this win. How can Bowles actually watch this game and think BL was competent at calling plays. Every 1st down was a run, which set the offense back. Licht or the Glazers has to step in demand change.

  25. D-Rok Says:

    Does ANYBODY think Brady shrugged off the incessant 21 dives and instead said, “Naw, Leftnut, I gonna do what I gonna do?” I do.

    Classic, epic Brady, and this team – who believed him that they could win with only a minute or so left.

    The bigger question is, Will this win be a catalyst for winning/competitive football from here on out? Ask Leftnut.

  26. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Cmon woke Glazers. Just pretend Leftwich is white and fire him

  27. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    TB12, still got the mojo. I was starting to have my doubts.

  28. Lamarcus Says:

    Our team is a bad team. Throwing 58 times for 280? 4-5 yards per attempt What we do check down the whole game?

  29. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Joe is not sure what was learned
    – Brady should call the plays

  30. Greg Says:

    Props to “Big girl” Vita Vea,,, LOVE that guy! Carlton Davis, Lavonte, Scotty and Ottman! Game balls for all 5!

  31. T REX Says:

    we can only hope this starts some momentum

    it was an awful game on the eyes

  32. Greg Says:

    And PLEASE receive Leftwich of his duties tonight! It’s not working

  33. Sean Says:

    There’s a heck of difference between 4-5 and 3-6 but my level of confidence is still pretty low. This offense is just not figuring it out. Still, I can enjoy some temporary schadenfreude at Aaron Rogers’s expense.

  34. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Brady cant call all the plays. That’s too much to ask of anyone, even the GOAT.
    BUT that said….fire Leftwich and get Brady some help calling plays. Preferably from Arians

  35. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    @ Listnfrmafar maybe FUn guys are your cup of tea, but I like women!!! Sorry, but go down to ST PETE and you will find what your looking for

  36. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Leftnut tried his best to lose that game, Brady had to call a TO because Leftnut had personnel on the field that didn’t know the play. Comical, it stopped the hurry up that was working. Redemption for Miller cause that was one drop that gets you cut. D played great and the Kupp catches are on Bowels, there is one man on the Rams O that can hurt you and once again he let it happen.

  37. Rod Munch Says:

    Vlad The Impaler – You need to move all the Fire Leftwich’s to the top, then copy and paste just the Fire Leftwich part about 4-million times, and I’m right with you.

  38. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    WTF is wrong with Leftwich?

  39. D-Rok Says:

    So, we all agree, from here on out we refer to him as Leftnut. Like Left Shark but only more incompetent. At least Left Shark was drunk.

    Great win because we needed it SO badly.

  40. Buczilla Says:

    F yes!!!!!

  41. Chris Says:

    Joe, you’re excited about a win? You excited about the poor coaching and Todd Bowles lack of leadership that is so visible a 3rd string high school punter can see? This team may have one but this team is not going anywhere anytime soon so come back to reality and write about what is really going on.

  42. R0n@Tampa Says:

    Who do we face in the AFC in February?

  43. Doc Says:

    The Rams are tanking for the number one overall pick.

  44. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Vlad, the imposter. Try not to be a dic.

  45. Deeez NATZ Says:

    Mr toilet bowl butthole said we are just going to keep running..This team is horrible…They may not ever win another game all year unless Boron we throw gets fired..He won’t though because that will mean toilet bowl is the R word lol bucs still suck…horrible

  46. LastDance Says:

    Yucs2Bucs and the rest of the losers who don’t deserve the GOAT still get to enjoy when he saves your AZZ. Comical and ironic

    Also you need to go with leftover sandwich wherever they ship his AZZ hopefully not to my local high school. They have a pretty good offense Id hate to see him ruin it

  47. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Yuc, Yuc, Yuc, you should be happy now you only have to sell you stadium seats for a 60% loss.

    Lamarcus, it’s called taking what the defense gives you arsewipe. Sorry but Brady’s here for another week. Saurkraut time.

  48. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    @Listnfrmafar you’re a moron and excited about Miller and what else ? You definitely got picked on during your life because that was a horrible game and it’s nice to see the team get lucky. I don’t want to say boys because you were wanting to F us early and like I said there’s a street in St Pete that will help you finding boys

  49. Joe in Michigan Says:

    To quote Al Davis, “JUST WIN, BABY!”.

  50. SufferingSince76 Says:

    How does Krupp keep making the secondary look so bad?

  51. rigged Says:

    NFL is rigged. And I’m a bucs fan

  52. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    @lastdance it’s good your excited about a win, but it doesn’t take away the fact of how bad this team that was put together by Licht and others is. Lastly watch your tone homeboi

  53. Craig Says:

    Rams are hasbeens. They sold out to get Stafford and will be paying for years, with no first round pick in sight.

    The bigger problem is the drops. This team needs a tune up of some sort. Their tree needs to get shook.

    Firing Leftie might be the easy way out, if Bowles has another OC behind door number 3.

    If not, hire Brady to be OC next season. He will be better at making Trask shine.

  54. JimmyfromNY Says:

    The Brady trolls are trying so hard that last minute just put a knife in their stomach just like the past 22 years it’s freaking awesome. Losing tears of the most delicious cry all you want about yards per attempt and all the other nonsense when he needed to be he’s still the best of the best. Love it

  55. Bob in valrico Says:

    Camarda was very good.He can make tackles and is a more well rounded football player than than the majority of his peers. Love to see him pull off a fake punt.
    But my my monster award has to go to Vita Vea who stepped up his game in a big way . He was more of a factor than Aaron Donald and that’s saying something. In spite of few big plays to Kupp, the defense played well overall and kept us in the game.

  56. FortMyersDave Says:

    I am glad the Bucs won but that looked just like a late ’80s matchup of a 5 dash 11 Ray Perkins’ squad against a 3 or 4 win Packer or Lions team. Probably cost the Bucs a few slots in the 23 draft order.

  57. Oneilbuc Says:

    Bowles done a good job calling the defense and defense has been playing good all year.

  58. Duane Says:

    A much needed win. Hard to watch. Hopefully they could build on it next week, and get the offense going.

  59. Pruritus Ani Says:

    No Godwin screens for awhile. Too predictable.

  60. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafart. The Rams defense gave up the game at the end lol how you play 10 yards off the receivers while the offense is on the 50 yard line ?? Lol 😆😆 Brady threw the ball 58 times and completed only 28 passes. Defense should get the game ball especially Vieta!!!

  61. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    “Somehow the Bucs flipped a switch on their final drive with less than a minute to play.”

    The only switch that got flipped was taking the playcall out of Leftfoot’s hands during the hurry up. The offense is freaking horrible until that switch flips. Horrible. The sea gulls are going to kill us.

  62. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Yuc, Yuc, obviously your a h@m#phobe, if you write it out Joe’s interns shut you down. Tell you kid his helmet and jersey are a GREAT investment, 4 stadium seats, NOT so much. Oh, how is that a lucky win? D makes a great stop and the GOAT takes it to the house in 44 secs. Oh he’s only done that 54 times before. Oneilsuckyall, Bowels called a great defense, that’s all you got out of that game. Say it with me, “I’m Oneilsuckyall, I Hate the White Man!” Kensucky Buc is awful quiet.

  63. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilsuckyall, it’s call prevent defense, every team does it except Bowels in the playoff game.

  64. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    DrunkinYbor Says:
    “Winningly ugly or winning pretty still = a win… Looks like we’re back in time to 1997.”

    Straight Dungy ball.

  65. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafart. That offense is not going to work later on in the season. The Rams offense is just as bad as ours.

  66. Nutterbuccer Says:

    Gutted bye a bunch of plays? Rams had 2 plays on offense entire game. This should of been a blowout but Leftwich is god awful

  67. Buc4evr Says:

    Defense won this game. Offensive play calling was horrible yet again. O line is terrible and WRs had a ton of drops. Poor TB12…. This team may win the division, but they are not going anywhere….

    Uh, it was 36 completions, Oneil Saints Fan.

  69. Manny Says:

    Brady not sits at 373 straight passes without a pic. 30 away from breaking karen rodgers nfl record. Would be a cool record for the bucs to own as a team. People love to sh$$ talk about tom but he has by far tge best int% this season

  70. orlbucfan Says:

    Hey, Listnfrmafar, you are a yahoo. Go look it up. This was a total team win. Game balls to Camara, Succop, the ST and D, Otton, Miller, the OLine, especially #60 who had to deal with a healthy Aaron Donald, and Mike Evans who toughed it out. I’ll bet he’s got cracked ribs at least.
