Brett Favre Is Buying Baker Mafyield After Expecting “Tom Brady Blues”

September 24th, 2023

Joe likes this take from Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre because Favre admits he’s never met Baker Mayfield or talked to Mayfield’s teammates about him.

Favre has dabbled in various NFL media since retiring a dozen years ago, from network TV to his former weekly show on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

He was a guest on the recent Fearless podcast and the discussion turned to blaming or crediting coaching versus quarterback play. That led to Baker Mayfield.

Favre likes what he’s seeing from Mayfield in Tampa and thinks Mayfield finally may have found his team.

“For the life of me I can’t figure out why he hasn’t gotten on a team and secured a starting spot,” Favre said, obviously referring to Mayfield sticking with a franchise.

“I’m buying the Baker Mayfield success. I think he’s mobile enough. I think he’s got the arm. I think he’s got the moxie, the smarts. Maybe this is his team.”

Favre said he thought the Bucs would be a poor team this season suffering, in part, from the “Tom Brady blues.”

The “incredible opening day win” in Minnesota, Favre said, opened his eyes and Mayfield’s showing through two weeks has done the rest. He emphasized that it doesn’t matter if Minnesota turns out to be good or not.

Joe knows Mayfield is being overhyped through two weeks, but not by much. It’s very difficult to walk into a new team with a new playcaller — in Brady’s shadow — with little preseason action and thrive out of the gate.

In theory, Mayfield should only get better.

Favre added that Evans  “is a huge crutch for Baker to lean on,” if Evans stays healthy.

    Hey, man, way off topic, but how many Bucs fans are thoroughly enjoying watching sadist Sean Peyton getting absolutely bent over by the Fish. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy,LOL!!!
    Peyton won’t walk right for a month of Sundays. But, hey, Bucs fans are merciful souls. Does anybody have a used donut cushion Sean can borrow for his sore bunghole???

    NE Fan should be commenting any minute now with his negative crap

    In another topic…guys , don’t buy into the Saints are very good. Right now, they are taking the Packers to the woodshed, but the truth is that the Packers ain’t that good this year and Jordan Love ain’t all that neither.

    i can tell you this…

    desmond ridder, the atlanta qb completely sucks…he’s like a zack wilson type scrub

    Now the dreaded “game manager “ is thriving. He hasn’t turned it over and has two wins. That’s all that matters. Let’s not pretend the defense hasn’t done the majority. He will have to win some games this season. We will see if he’s ready to thrive

    Carr is out for the saints game with a shoulder injury so we might be facing jamies next week 👀

    Agree the Pack is not very good this season but perhaps not as bad as N.O. is making them look. N.O. has a VERY good defense. I think the Bucs N.O. game if both teams play to their potential will be a low scoring defensive struggle. Carr doesn’t impress me any more than Mayfield.

    What does impress me however are the Bucs kickers. Playing in a Dome will give McLaughlin 60+ yards range IF the OL can block for a long kick.

    IMHO the Saints and Bucs are pretty evenly matched and it nice to have a punter who booms them and a FG kicker who is good from 60+ in their dome.

    In the case of a refugee from a proctologists office like Sean Payton I feel like the Wishmaster gin: his suffering is like exquisite music to my ears.

    ….and there you have JWinston being JWinston….🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  10. M milligan Says:

    Yes packers suck, saints look good
    Falcons sucking D at lions
    No 5 yd motion penalties
    To many & terrible for this offense
    Scrambling 60 yd strike to evens for 4th qtr W over eagles

  11. Iamabuc Says:

    …and btw, ignore and don’t pay attention to NEgative Nelly or DANiella. The Bucs are the better team in the NFCS, hands down!

  13. Iamabuc Says:

    What did I tell you…the Saints…my Lord!!…😂😂😂😂😂😂…A game they practically had in the bag, went south as soon as JW came in….😂😂😂😂
    Good news…JW will probably be the starter when we play them…🤭

  14. Fred McNeil Says:

    Jaymiss the alleged, and I do emphasize alleged, accused and I do mean accused rapist and serial groper is going to face us next Sunday???
    I will enjoy the festivities!
    Joe is not saying this. I am.

  15. unbelievable Says:

    0 points after Winston came in.

    That said, he’ll be more prepared when we play them if he has a full week retaking reps with the first team.

  16. Bucs13 Says:

    Our defense is overrated! We dominated a bad Bears team

  17. garro Says:

    Now Favre’s take is one I can respect. He makes some valid points. Especialy about Baker having Evans…. And Chris of course.

    Go Bucs

  18. Buckeyebuckchuck Says:

    Well, Mayfield did replicate Favre’s draft day pic. But i agree, when old boy has former QBs sounding off he has upped his game
