The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will trot out their starting offense in the preseason finale, including Tom Brady. It’s a chance to ease a lot of Buccaneers fans minds.
To say this preseason and training camp has been a roller coaster of emotions for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is probably the understatement of the century. Heck, this whole offseason has been, especially as it pertains to the GOAT of GOATs, Mr. Tom Brady.
He was retired, then he wasn’t. He was practicing, then he wasn’t. On top of all that, his new-look offensive line is battered and bruised. Naturally, as we sit here today a lot of Buccaneers fans are starting to feel a little, shall we say, “antsy” to say the least.
That all being said, it makes sense why the Bucs will have their offensive starters, the healthy ones anyway, start the preseason finale against the Indianapolis Colts. Head coach Todd Bowles says that the reason is that they want Brady to build some rapport with his offensive line. There’s been a lot of hoopla surrounding that very topic, so that should hopefully be music to at least a select few fans years. When asked if Brady‘s absence has disrupted the flow of the offense, and the team in general, Bowles simply said “We’re good.“ You can do with that what you will.
With the brouhaha surrounding this entire offseason and Tom Brady, the decision by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for him and the offense to start the preseason finale is a wise one. GOATs do GOAT things, so once he starts doing those things, we’ll be off and running and this will all be a funny memory, at least until he’s set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, but cross that bridge ya know? Anyway, this will get the offense in a much needed flow before the real games begin, and at the very least put a bed at least some of the issues in the minds of a lot of fans.
