Super Bowl Champs Tampa Bay Bucs thread: Legendary Tampa QB heads to mediocre northeastern team for week 4

Atlanta may have the worst defense in the league though. Same with Dallas. Neither will be serious contenders but they’ll be fun. 
 

Saints are the only one you mentioned I think could be good. Arizona is going 9-8 and SF has a mess at QB. Imo. 

Anyone who can put up points is a threat.  Atlanta went toe to toe with us twice.  I could be wrong on Zona, but like I said, there's always someone you don't expect that makes a decent run. 

I won't lie though.  I'm rooting for Rodgers to get shipped off to the AFC too.

And this, Boys and Girls, is how you manage a team with a small super bowl window. Maybe if the Packers realized you go all in when your window is closing, they would be holding the Lombardi Trophy.

The Bucs are the 1st team with four 30-point games in a postseason. They are the 1st team to beat 3 SB MVP QBs in a postseason (Mahomes, Rodgers, Brees) Tom Brady is the 1st player in NFL histor

Buccaneers are giving Shaq Barrett a four-year deal worth up $72 million that includes $36 million fully guaranteed, his agent @DrewJRosenhaus told ESPN       I truly don’t know anyth

If they return the entire offensive and defensive lines from 2020, look out NFL. Those lines were awesome through the entire playoffs.

Brady, Brady Brady, blah blah blah. Not arguing about how good he is but he's a lot less factor in their success than the OL and DL.

After a 2nd read i see your point about the OL/DL and Joe Tryon is only going to add to their Front 7 or Edge rushers like Shaq and JPP. 

Still would not discount what Brady did for this team, city, State, boat parades ;)

Adding Tryon to the Edge rush rotation was probably the only way a rookie would be able to make an immediate impact in 2021 (barring injury). 

I would have liked to see them add another DB instead of Trask, but I understand their reasoning in selecting him.   The free agency market for QBs is brutal after this season so getting a QB in here a year early to see if he can be the successor makes a lot of sense.  Not to mention they should expect to be picking fairly late in the draft again.

Trask should still inherit a talented roster once Brady hangs them up.

Sure the Falcons can come together and beat the Bucs, or anybody on a given Sunday but you think they’re a super bowl threat? I doubt they even make the playoffs.

My only issue with it, and this is without the benefit of knowledge they have, is that I expect Brady to play at least 2 more seasons and maybe 3. Physically he doesn’t even look close to being finished.

We should be so lucky.

Fun Fact:

The last time the Cowboys and Bucs faced off in Week 1 was the 2001 season.  Brad Johnson's first game as a Buccaneer.  The Bucs held the Quincy Carter led Cowboys to 34 yards passing and 127 total yards in a 10-6 victory.  It was Tampa Bay's first ever victory in Dallas.

9/11 was two days later. Nearly twenty years ago.

Schedule is soft. 14-3

I'm at 15-2/16-1, they could make a run. Rams on the road not easy BUT they aren't going to be gassed rolling into town after B2B home games to open the season. They go to Foxboro week after the Rams, could be an upset brewing there. 

They are going to be favored vs all 3 Division opponents but the Falcons have the offense and I think they are going to win 10 games this year, Bucs could easily split there. But 5-1/4-2 likely in the Division, maybe more like 6-0. 

@ WFT however that will be after a very smooth BYE week the NFL handed them right in the middle of the season, perfect. They don't see a tough opponent on the back half of their schedule with closing games of @ Car, @ NYJ and CAR at home to close the season, it's mighty soft. 

Brady could go 20-0 this year and then call it a career. That would shatter the Phins record of 17-0 in '72 and that would pretty much cover every record there is for him.

Look man if they go 20-0 and back to back with the greatest QB ever all us Bucs fans have to stop watching football because that’s the top of the mountain and it would never get better. 
 

fwiw, I give that about a 1% chance, if that.

And I'm guessing Brady is the only guy still in the league from that day?

Their real odds were +7,500 last year. Probably a bit better for 2021.

Watch who you're calling bandwagon, chief ;)

I watched this team under Sam Wyche at the Big Sombrero, worked with Lee Roy Selmon when USF launched their football program, the Community Investment Tax Stadium and so on and so forth. After Gruden left I did start to lose some interest but had high hopes when they got Arians, you can call me bandwagon, it's fine. I just enjoy watching them and wish they would wear the creamscicle jerseys more often.

Bandwagon fans don’t bother me. Absolutely every successful team has had them.

They used to really bug me, and successful Florida teams are the worst at attracting them, but as I got older I realized it just adds to the atmosphere. The buzz of the city has been amazing the last few years with the Champa Bay moxy.

Week 1 '97 the beginning of a new day in Tampa Bay as I like to say. This would be the game where Sapp and crew give Steve Young a new outlook on the NFL, sorry Niners fans. This was the game where fans took a step back and asked "who are these guys?" and from the opening shot I think you can tell it wasn't exactly a sellout that day. 

This is what got me energized towards the team and made me a believer early on in the Dungy era that things were about to change. I keep waiting for the Phins to have one of these breakout games vs one of the NFL elites...maybe this year? Maybe Phillips can be the Sapp type of personality the team needs 🤷‍♂️

-Everyone has these days they mark down, this was always one of them for me. It was like going to see the Lightning at Tropicana in front of like 25,000+ you were either there or you weren't in the 90's. 1st year at Expo Hall I can remember. This specific game to me is like when Marino opened the '84 season vs the Washington Redskins. 

Week 1 '84 Marino tosses 5 TDs

Remember it like it was yesterday...  We listened to the game during a cook-out...

He's got 3 TDs... he's got 4... he's got 5!  and, as you know, things then were a little different than they are today.
