Who knew?

The addition of Tom Brady dominated the offseason headlines for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and rightly so. When you bring in a first-ballot Hall of Famer under center, a man with six Super Bowl rings in his collection, people around the league are going to take notice.

But all the while, sneaky Bruce Arians had another vision in mind. (more…)

Ira Kaufman’s 10 Takeaways From Bucs-Broncos

Whether it’s major-league baseball or the National Football League, complete games are hard to come by.

So it is with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who suffered a second-half offensive lull for the second consecutive week against a pedestrian opponent.

Tampa Bay came out ready to play again on both sides of the ball and only self-inflicted wounds prevented a runaway in Denver.

Last week, it was a flurry of dropped passes that undermined Tom Brady’s unit. On Sunday, it was an array of penalties along the offensive line.

The bigger news is the Bucs are deservedly 2-1 heading into a home game against the Chargers that will feature a sprinkle of fans at Raymond James Stadium.

As expected, the injury-ravaged Broncos couldn’t muster much against this marauding defense. Even with Drew Lock under center and Courtland Sutton on the flank, Denver was going to struggle to score points. Without them, the Broncos had no chance.

That’s the best news of all for Buc fans … this defense is for real. Nine solid games in a row suggests Todd Bowles is orchestrating a scary unit filled with playmakers at all levels.

Complete game? No. Bruce Arians may not like the phrase “killer instinct,” but that’s what Buc fans crave. They want more focus after halftime because you don’t get to play the Panthers and Broncos every week.

Still, there’s a lot to be proud of at One Buc Place. We’re nitpicking wins now instead of bemoaning losses.

That, my friends, is called progress, with a capital P that rhymes with C that stands for championship.

Here’s How the West Was Won: (more…)

BY IRA KAUFMAN

What, you thought this was going to be easy?

You’re a Buccaneer fan — the Bucs don’t do easy. At halftime, this one looked like a romp for the home team. By the fourth quarter, the outcome was very much in doubt.

That’s life in the NFL, but the important part is Tampa Bay now carries credible momentum into Denver. Despite some hiccups, the defense got the job done while Leonard Fournette earned more touches by applying the dynamic finishing touch. (more…)

Maybe, just maybe, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have themselves a defense.

Todd Bowles isn’t satisfied, of course. He wants more from his guys, and that’s the way it should be. For all the good things Tampa Bay did against Drew Brees, the Saints didn’t turn the ball over and the Bucs lost. (more…)
