All this hype over what’s going to be a blowout (Bucs 40 - Pats 5) when the game of the week is staring us all in the face (Rams vs Cardinals)

Yeah, I'd like to see a good game, but I think the Patriots are just going to get shithoused. Rookie QB, no OL, bad run defense, bad special teams, receivers with the dropsies, overpaid TEs doing nothing, James White out.

Basically the Pats just suck in a really boring way, and even if the Bucs defense has taken a step back from 2020 the Pats offense is so anemic that it won't matter today.

I doubt it will be the blowout everyone seems to think. The Bucs are down their #2 and #3 corner and they weren't exactly great to begin with. Couple that with JPP probably missing another game and the pass rush not being able to get to the QB at all this year leads me to believe Mac will probably look decent and have some long drives to keep the game within reason.

The Bucs DL can't be worse than the Jets and they got in Macs face. That isn't to say the Jets DL is bad but it's the worst one they've faced so far.

Their secondary being a dumpster fire helps right now but the Pats won't be able to stop Tampas offense so unless Brady has one of those random 3 int can't get anything going games their inability to cover anyone won't matter

The Pats right now are simply decrepit on both sides of the ball. Also Brady wants blood.

My read on it was it feels very college football and people usually roll their eyes when coaches try to recreate that culture in the NFL.

Rex was killed in the media and by non-Jets fanbases for repeatedly saying that he wanted to beat the Patriots. And he did beat the Pats from time to time as well.

Belichick obviously wanted to keep Brady after 2019 - there were no better choices - but Belichick sure as poo poo wanted to swap Brady out for Jimmy G before the start of the 2018 season. Jimmy G and Brady had the same agent however - and the same shared goal - and went over Belichick's head to Kraft to keep Brady on the team. So Brady's dad is right in a way, it's just that it was like four years ago.

Brady's snake oil guy had some interesting comments on the whole thing.

quote:

For starters, Guerrero chalked up Tom Sr.’s remarks to those of a protective, loving father. He wasn’t necessarily speaking for his son.

“Look, I’m a father. I’ve got children. And I love and admire my kids. I think those were the emotions that were spoken by a loving father,” Guerrero said Wednesday afternoon. “I don’t know if they were really Tom’s emotions. When you’re in your mid-40s, how often are you calling your dad to talk about your work?”

Guerrero did, however, confirm Brady no longer felt wanted in New England, and the front office wasn’t giving him enough reason to stay. Guerrero contended Brady’s relationship with Bill Belichick got tougher to maintain toward the end, because Belichick didn’t evolve as Brady matured into an NFL legend.

“The interesting thing I think there — and this is just me, an outsider looking in — it was like Bill never really … I think his emotions or feelings never evolved with age,” Guerrero said. “I think in time, with Tom, as Tom got into his late 30s or early 40s, I think Bill was still trying to treat him like that 20-year-old kid that he drafted. And all the players, I think, realized Tom was different.

“He’s older, so he should be treated differently. And all the players, none of them would have cared that he was treated differently. I think that was such a Bill thing. He never evolved. So you can’t treat someone who’s in his 40s like they’re 20. It doesn’t work.”

Guerrero then suggested Belichick seemed to have changed for Cam Newton, Brady’s immediate successor.

“It’s interesting, if you look at how Bill looks at some of these other players, it looks to me like he’s been able to modify or change a little bit,” said Guerrero. “Maybe he’s forced to. If you’re going to be a coach, a coach should be the one to modify or make changes.”

Pretty much this. Brace for :patssay: and/or :qq: I guess:

I get that everyone is gun-shy about declaring the Patriots dead after it kept not happening from 2013-present, but they just look like poo poo across the board now. It's just flown under the radar since they're generically bad instead of "hilarious absolute disaster LOL WTF BBQ" bad. They will probably improve over the course of the year, but at this moment they're basically as bad as they've looked since the early 1990s. The new guys are still confused by the system and tripping over their own feet, and the old guys have been invisible. Penalties and blunders have been ever-present.

Everyone assumed the OL would be good and it's quietly been godawful. Their ancient OL guru got replaced by Just Some loving Guy and now they can't run for poo poo and their rookie QB is getting blasted off the snap even on checkdowns.

The run defense has spent the last 2 weeks getting dunked on. The pass defense looks fine on paper but hasn't played a real QB yet and is missing its top corner. Special teams has sucked. It's basically the opposite of every stereotype about the Belichick era Patriots.

Ironically the quarterback is probably the least of their problems, he's been firmly in the "fine for a rookie, I guess" bin rather than '"actually good" but the main problem is that he's getting drilled while his receivers and tight ends don't get open, drop the ball or tip it to the other team. And they can't run the ball so he literally led the team in total rushing and yards per attempt against the Saints as a sluggish Caucasian lol.

It's true that Belichick wanted Brady instead of nobody, but his offer was such poo poo that he'd have to be a moron to think it would be taken seriously. Which I guess is possible.

1) 1 year deal for below market value instead of a multi year deal with more guaranteed total and per year
2) Play with shitass receivers and get thrown under the bus when the offense sucks, instead of throwing to a bunch of giant fast talented dudes
3) Get treated like a basic bitch as a 43 year old man instead of... not that

I saw that they had THREE rushing attempts by non-QBs. That's a ridiculous balance for any team, let alone one with a young QB whose mobility is his greatest strength right now.

Quick Reads W3: All Rookies Are Terrible
https://twitter.com/fboutsiders/status/1442851308030078976

Jaylen Waddle is probably the least of the Dolphins' concerns but this is fun.

quote:

Regardless, this is probably the worst day you'll ever see for a player who caught 12 passes in 13 targets. But none of those catches gained more than 9 yards, and only one—a 7-yard gain on second-and-1—produced a first down. Waddle's average of 4.8 yards per catch is the second-worst ever for a wide receiver with at least 10 catches in a game, and that's not even accounting for the time he fumbled on a 4-yard catch on third-and-15. Finally, Waddle is the only player in Stathead's database, which goes back to 1994, to catch a pass and then be tackled for a safety.
