They’re just so damned talented.

On a day they forgot how to tackle or close out an opening half, the Bucs just swept the Falcons for the second consecutive year, forging a 4-game lead atop the NFC South with only five weeks remaining.

The Hall of Fame combo of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski came up big, but save some game balls for Chris Godwin and an offensive line bursting with pride and skill. (more…)

The Bucs just won a game by 20 points … and it really wasn’t that close.

The bright lights came on at Raymond James Stadium Monday night and the stars came out. With John Lynch and Warren Sapp cheering from a suite, Devin White led a defensive charge that choked the life out of Daniel Jones and that sorry Giants attack.

Tom Brady was on point most of the evening behind stalwart protection and Rob Gronkowski looked sharp in his return. Even Ryan Succop got in on the action, converting all three field goal tries.

When ESPN’s 157-person crew finally called it a day, Tampa Bay was sitting atop the NFC South by two games over the fading Saints and the Bucs were once again the favorites to win the Super Bowl. (more…)

Presented by Bill Currie Ford, Tampa’s first family of Ford

It’s time to see what the young man can do.

The Bucs have tried very hard not to load too much on the plate of rookie Joe Tryon-Shoyinka. He was drafted in the first round to give Jason Pierre-Paul and Shaq Barrett a blow as an edge rusher, but circumstances have changed.

JPP doesn’t need a blow — he needs time off. (more…)

Let’s dispense with the highlights, shall we?

Devin White showed up in the nation’s capital and looked like the game-wrecker who keyed a late-season defensive surge in 2020. While White was all over the joint, most of his teammates took a dirt nap at FedEx Field.

Bruce Arians summed it up rather nicely after the 29-19 setback, apologizing to Buc Nation for an embarrassing performance. Arians also acknowledged that Tampa Bay played passionate football for only eight minutes. The other 52, he said, were “godawful.” (more…)
