  1. Not a huge believer in Amari Cooper, but I respect that he made a bold statement and came to play. He backed up his talk with a great game.
  2. I can't argue with that. But the fact that we could even have the discussion shows how silly the "best in the league" comment was. He's "arguably" the best on his own team. Not that I blame him for saying it. He knows Lamb is getting more pub and he has a chip on his shoulder. Now he wants to go out there and show what he can do with a full season (hopefully) with his QB. Good for him.
  3. Obviously they didn't like Robinson enough to draft at another position. So why would they all of a sudden love him now? This is a little like Akers and Henderson. Akers gets hurt so many assume Henderson is "the guy." But he wasn't "the guy" in the team's eyes at the beginning of the offseason. Now they trade for Michel. I don't think they see Henderson as the workhorse. Maybe, but I don't see it. Robinson wasn't seen as good enough to leave the position alone on draft day. I think they'll bring in more guys after final cuts. I don't think they want to roll with Robinson. Maybe, but I don't see it.
  4. Last year I barely beat the random picks in the regular season, and was net negative until the last few weeks. This year I was middle of the pack the entire game. I'm taking this tie for 1st. I need it.
  5. Fournette ran with passion. He knew this was his best chance to win a title and he took it. But I think he might be back. Even if he follows the money, what's the market for a RB with some tread on the tires? I call that one 50/50. Godwin is gone. He'll get paid somewhere.
  6. I saw a meme that said Tom Brady is statistically more likely to make the Super Bowl than Steph Curry is to make a 3-pointer.
  7. Many people consider it the most impactful game in Buccaneer history. To actually reach the SB was (at the time) nearly inconceivable (#princessbride). The euphoria of getting there was at least as big as winning it; probably more. That's how downtrodden the franchise was.
  8. Same can be said for Brady, no? Takes a lot of work to be in that kind of shape at 43. You say "how can I not root for that guy" regarding Mahomes, but many folks don't root for Brady. And it's probably because Super Bowls seem to come easy for him. No team (aside from Brady's New England) has as many appearances as he has, and we're talking about teams that have been around all 55 years of the SB era. Not saying Mahomes isn't a guy worth rooting for. He definitely is. I'm saying Duff's argument that things seem to come easy for him without much struggle makes sense, considering that's probably the very reason why so many people hate Brady. This year's Super Bowl features two QBs whose resumes are almost superhuman for this point in their respective careers.
  9. When Green Bay set up for that late field goal: Me: It's a fake. They're definitely not kicking it. Person watching with me who doesn't follow football closely: No, they're obviously gonna kick it. They're setting up for the kick. Me (condescending tone): Look, you don't understand. It makes no sense to kick it when they're right near the end zone, and they need a TD anyway, and there isn't much time... (kicks ball) Person: What were you saying? Me: (leaves couch) I'm getting up. You want anything?
  10. I totally forgot. I live in Tampa, and I didn't even think about anything but the game until...after the game. I'll be in for the SB.
  11. If I gambled, I'd be all over this. I'd also probably take the under.
  12. I'll grant you most of that. BUT you're in the playoffs. Brees could have one of his not-great games. Lutz has been missing field goals. Untimely turnovers could help the Bears. And Montgomery could have a productive game. Sure, it's unlikely. But certainly possible. Then, maybe an injury on another team puts them in a better position to win the following week, etc etc. The point is, you can't win playoff games if you're not in the playoffs. The Bears are in the playoffs.
  13. I don't understand how a fan can be disappointed in their team making the playoffs. Anything can happen. Turnovers, injuries, whatever. Win four games and you're Super Bowl champions. It's unlikely, but you never know. And 18 fan bases are just watching games this weekend. Your team is still in it. That's something.
  14. I don't really follow college football, so for me rookies pretty much come out of nowhere. Herbert was probably my favorite rookie. I think he's for real. At this stage of his career, he can hit the open guy and doesn't seem to get too rattled (his mistakes are basic rookie mistakes). That's good for year one. I think poor coaching held him back. I think this is the job Gruden wishes he had taken. It's a talented team that can compete for a wildcard spot.
  15. Not a WFT fan, but they can absolutely beat the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers have exactly one win against teams with a winning record. I know WFT is 7-9, but Tampa's 11-5 is mostly beating teams they were supposed to beat. Among NFC playoff teams, the Bucs * lost to the Saints twice * lost to the Bears * lost to the Rams * beat (the hell out of) the Packers A good defense, a solid running game and no turnovers can win that game. Not saying they will, but I expect an entertaining game that will be won by a TD or less.
  16. Third-place game has a payout, and I wanted the win after a really crazy year where it felt like I was playing from behind since week 1. He had Rodgers going, and I countered with Adams. A "good" game wouldn't have been enough. To win, Adams would have needed the lion's share of that production. He got it, I got the win and take home something for my troubles in 2020. I've won titles that were less satisfying. This season was a grind. It's nice to end on a positive and call it a good year.
  17. I don't blame Rivera for keeping Haskins in there too long. In hindsight it was wrong, but who would expect the practice squad guy to give you a better chance to win? I DO blame him for letting Haskins start in the first place. If you want a culture change, making Haskins inactive would have proven you're really in it for the long-term turnaround. You're willing to give up a shot at the playoffs to make your point that you want a certain type of guy on the team. Turns out it might have gotten them to the playoffs, too. But again, hindsight.
  18. Of course. Everybody has a chance. Just have to get there. If WFT loses next week, I believe the winner of Giants/Cowboys takes the division. Giants gave the Bucs all they could handle, and that was before Gallman was rolling. That's not a good matchup for TB.
