1. Tom Brady regresses
Tom Brady doesn’t have to win the MVP for the Buccaneers to win a Super Bowl.
Brady doesn’t have to throw for 5,000 yards or set all kinds of records. Instead, he just has to simply not regress.
Brady, at the age of 42, knows what he’s capable of and what’s he’s not. Tampa Bay needs to accentuate these strengths and play to them and Brady can’t by any means regress.
If Brady can’t be a solid quarterback who plays at the level that we’ve seen him at in the past- as recently as last year- Tampa won’t win the Super Bowl and there’s no doubt about that.
It all starts and ends with Tom Brady for the Bucs this season. The Buccaneers go as far as Brady goes and it’s really as simple as that.
