These players helped the Buccaneers become champions.
It still doesn’t feel real to believe that the Buccaneers are Super Bowl champions. Bucs fans have gone through so much in recent years with the tumultuous franchise, but all is right again as the Bucs move to 2/2 in the Super Bowl.
The game was perfect from start to finish for the Buccaneers, and the entire roster deserves due credit for stepping up after the disaster during the regular season, but these three Buccaneers had the best performances in the Super Bowl.
Could there have been anyone else? As the Super Bowl MVP and leader of this roster during his first year on the team, Tom Brady has been the biggest difference-maker for this franchise.
Signing Brady was the best decision in the history of the franchise, and his impact in year one directly resulted in a trip to the Super Bowl for a team that was one of the worst in the NFL before his arrival.
Brady finished the game 21/29 for 201 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. This was a vintage, highly efficient performance by Brady that complimented the defense perfectly.
While people can try all they want to point at any of the other changes on the roster or with the coaches, Tom Brady will remain the primary reason for the stark change in the franchise that led to this moment.
