Tom Brady Versus Davis Mills

November 28th, 2022

So which finds the end zone more often? The offense of the impotent, league-worst Houston Texans, or the one led by Tom Brady and elite receiving talent?

Relax. The answer is the Bucs offense, but the problem is Tampa Bay only has one more touchdown than the Texans. One!

Tampa Bay’s offense has the greatest quarterback to ever play the game and a good and sometimes excellent defense getting the ball back in their hands. The Texans have a bottom-rung starting quarterback, Davis Mills, weaksauce receivers, dancing Dare Ogunbowale in the backfield and a miserable defense led by Lovie Smith.

Joe points this out because it illustrates just how wrong things are at One Buc Palace. Julio Jones has played a ton of the snaps in the past four games and still the Bucs offense hasn’t found its footing — even with Chris Godwin being healthy and Mike Evans on the field.

Tanking yetserday to the miserable Browns coming off a bye week really has Joe in a deep, dark and bitter funk.

    Milking the misery teet.

    Joe…you still think Donovan Smith is good?

  4. SPARKY Says:

    The defense looks good, but they get us no take a ways. Our offense seems to always have to go 75 yards to score. Also on the over throws to Evans, look at the film, Evans slows down on his routes when he doesn’t think the ball is coming to him.

  5. LOL Says:

    This Bucs team is bad……. Just a shade better than the Lions probably at this point

  6. Tony1775 Says:

    Bowles needs to go his press conference today he actually said he didn’t call timeout was because he was afraid to throw an interception. So you are a scared no balls coach and won’t give BRADY, EVANS, GODWIN or JULIO a shot. Pathetic….

    Smith is completely average, as in probably the 12-20th best LT in the game. The fact you’re so stupid that you don’t know Garrett is literally the best pass rusher in the game is 100% on you for lacking intelligence, yet still being dumb enough to attempt to talk trash.

    It’s morons like yourself and Leftwich that don’t know the exceptional defensive players are that lead Smith being told to block the best pass rusher in the game 1-on-1 in OT with no help.

    I ran into a guy after the game wearing a Bucs shirt at 7 Eleven.

    I said they lost to the Browns it’s official now… they suck!

    Losing culture incoming!!!!

    The future is NOT bright!

    Guys I just watched Bowles press conference u can see it in his face he doesn’t know how to fix this. He knows all the problems but doesn’t know how to fix it. Bowles u cant fix players not wanting to play for dude. Steven A had some strong and interesting things to say hmmmmmm made me think.

    Everyone knows that Bowles isn’t really running the team, he’s running the defense. Leftwich runs the offense. Regardless of titles, that was the deal when Bowles accepted the job. Now Bowles has to take heat for Leftwich, yet he’s powerless to do anything about it.

    The only one who can do anything is Arians, and that is only to step in and help Leftwich (ie, do his job), and Arians isn’t going to do that.

    Short of the Glazers firing Leftwich, nothing will happen. And the Glazers right now are trying to sell ManU for $7-billion+, and the last thing they care about is who the Bucs OC is, and the heat they’d take from the social justice sports ‘reporters’ if they made a move, firing a young up and coming black coach. So the Glazers will sit this out until that team is sold, then, maybe, they get involved.

  12. ClwJB Says:

    He was exposed a long time ago – the players know and their play clearly demonstrates their lack of respect

  13. Redeemer Says:

    Rod, I said before the game, just don’t let Garrett ruin the game. He had 2 sacks, and a bunch of pressures and hits. Almost all of it in the second half.
    Bucs coaches, zero adjustment

  14. unbelievable Says:

    I call BS on that Rod, he’s not powerless. He simply doesn’t have the balls to do anything, because he doesn’t think coaching is the problem.

    He thinks his actions, and Leftwich’s are correct.

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    Redeemer – yep, I’m with you. During the game, I was saying you had to get Smith help, in particular at the end when Smith was clearly getting tired. For the most part Smith did well until the 4th quarter. How you don’t make changes when you can clearly see Smith wearing down, how in OT you’re giving him zero help, it’s just indefensiveable.

    Smith is fine, he’s not special, he’s certainly not terrible, he’s average and generally does a good job – but against an exceptional talent, you need to help him out. Everyone knows this, except for, apparently, the idiot that runs the Bucs offense.

    Payton is the property of the saints — they are not trading him here

  17. Rod Munch Says:

    unbelievable – What makes you think Bowles is calling the shots? Because of his title? LOL! If Bowles is running the team, what exactly is Arians still doing here in a role that seems to be above him? I’m not saying Arians is running the team either, to be clear, but what I am saying is that Bowles has nothing to do with this trash offense, he was forced to take Leftwich and stuck with him. If Bowles even attempted to fire Leftwich, Arians would go straight to the Glazers and block it as Leftwich is his project. Additionally I’m certain Bowles has great respect for Arians and Arians is telling Bowles he’ll talk to Leftwich and help him figure it out.

    But Leftwich is such a low-IQ idiot, nothing Arians is saying is getting through since he’s not directly on the headset on Sundays. Even if Arians is drawing up the opening series, once the gameplan reverts to Leftwich, the idiot is blowing it.

    It’s not about how good Smith is , he is adequate. Unfortunately, he gets mind bogglingly bad penalties for lazy habits!! Brady made a spectacular play yesterday to get them in field position in OT and Smith gets his hands up around a facemask in a play that he had absolutely no impact in , he’s lazy and he’s done it before and he doesn’t correct it and that’s coaching and that’s undisciplined player

  19. Rod Munch Says:

    JimmyfromNY – Lazy and tired are not the same thing. When a guy is struggling, and tired, you give them help. Also I believe the hands to the face came when Garrett went low, it’s not like Smith was standing him up and was still blocking up 8 ft in the air. Catching Garretts head wasn’t lazy, it was bad luck, Smith did not look like he was high on the block, just Garrett’s head was low.

    Also if Smith doesn’t do that and just lets Garrett get under him, he likely blindside nails Brady who either fumbles or gets hurt or both.

    The responsibility is on Leftwich for leaving Smith, who was struggling at that point, one and one and making zero adjustments.

  20. Cobraboy Says:

    So did Bowles say “we just weren’t in sync?”

  21. Lakeland Steve Says:

    Cheer up Joe, we can start looking towards the draft

  22. BrianBucs Says:

    Bowles and Leftwich are wasting Brady in what is probably his last year here and that is a damn shame

  23. Austin Says:

    Whoever wrote this article is a weirdo . One of those people who hates Tom Brady cause he’s a white all American Qb. He is the greatest QB of all time why are you comparing him to Davis Mills . Get a life and and stop writing articles

  24. Tucker Says:

    Six three and outs in regulation one play had to make one play, season is over coaching staff is too scared to be in this league. You always play to win it’s the NFL leave it all out there what is the mentality of this guy wow just wow.

  25. tbbucs3 Says:

    Still amazing to be how it’s somehow “posterous” to question whether or not a 45 year old QB whos running a bad offense is declining.

  26. Anthony Says:

    The rookie for the Browns wore Mike Evans like a shirt so what do the Bucs keep doing lining Evans up so this guy can be all over him. No motion No rubs to speak of no bunch sets that actually do more then slow down the Bucs receivers. And by the way could we please take the play where Brady throws to Godwin in the slot and get rid of it. It sucks the way its run and it fools no one. Pick 6 is comming Monday if they run it. The saints are going to come after the Bucs big time. Hope I’m wrong but Saints 28 Bucs 10
    I am a Bucs fan but I just don’t see the urgency in this team

  27. NEfan Says:

    Rod, BL was OC the last 3 seasons, he’s not good but the O was a pass first O and I believe Bowles changed that, not BL. Why would BL change 3 yrs of work, the last 2yrs with great success and run something totally different? Bowles is the HC, refuses BA’s input, clearly stated this is NOT Brady’s O it’s BL’s. What blows my mind is 2 games prior Brady had 44 seconds left with less TO’s and he score a TD to win it, against a better D but he won’t let him try to get in FG range with 2 timeouts and 36 seconds? The real sad part is I’ll bet Bowles didn’t miss a wink of sleep last night. Fire the bum!

  28. JimmyfromNY Says:

    The play I’m talking about Brady was already through the line of scrimmage made a desperation throw to white to get them at the field goal range. Smith wasn’t part of the play. Neither was Garrett. Brady felt the pressure moved up into the pocket. If he had stayed in the pocket , Garrett would’ve got to him,. It’s not the first time Smith has got his hands up high. And yes, he could be tired but happening numerous times is also a lazy and undisciplined . When it td time to grind those types of mistakes are killers that particular play yesterday May have cost them, the division. Go back and look at how many game changing penalties Smith has had this year and then even more similar bad technique in undisciplined

  29. Edward Kerber Says:

    Why did Byron Leftwich make the Offense wear Tuxedos to practice?

    Because if the the Offense is going to be IM-PO-TENT, they need to look IM-PO-TENT!!

    Sad!!!! But the NY Jets have a better record than the Bucs!!! This team just doesn’t want it bad enough this season- just collecting paychecks. Back to being the Suck-aneers!!!
