The Team Glazer, Front Office “Shift”

Monday, March 15th, 2021

“Look, Glazer, so maybe we play a little short-handed in 2023.”

Or perhaps Joe should call it “Tom.0.” (more…)

It’s nice to have good karma on your side.

BY IRA KAUFMAN

The NFL gods have quite a sense of humor.

This most improbable season ended in an improbable manner with a Super Bowl blowout. At 10:11 p.m., the Bucs turned the lights out on the Chiefs after a dominating performance that Tom Brady called “our best game of the year.”

It was the worst beatdown for Kansas City since Week 4 of the 2016 season, a span of 86 games. Patrick Mahomes was a junior at Texas Tech that day when the Steelers crushed the Chiefs 43-14.

This was worse. Much worse.

Todd Bowles draped a straitjacket over Tyreek Hill and Tampa Bay owned the trenches, hounding Mahomes relentlessly. A 14-2 powerhouse that had converted 49 percent on third down during the regular season went 3-for-13 on the money down.

Bankrupt. (more…)
