Greetings Bucs fans! I am ecstatic over last week’s 20-10 win over the New Orleans Saints! It was not a dominant win by the Buccaneers and wasn’t as smooth as I want these performances by the offense to be. It was a defensive battle, a gritty, grind-it-out type of victory. Those types of wins are signs for championship teams.
The Bucs’ offense had some miscues, but stuck with the game plan and kept working. The run game kept being used, even though the Bucs had three points throughout the first three quarters. That is a formula for success. Don’t let opposing defenses get a pass rush going against an abandon the run passing attack. Keep the opposing defense honest with a running game threat. Brady was 18-34 for 190 yards passing and a sweet 28-yard touchdown.
The Buccaneer’s defense was once again exceptional! Buccaneer’s defensive players combined for nine QB hits, six sacks, 65 tackles, and one sweet touchdown on the 68-yard INT return by safety Mike Edwards. Through two games, the Bucs D has allowed 13 points. Let me write that again. 13 points total through two games for Dallas and N.O. combined!
Buccaneers fans haven’t been able to create a home-field advantage these past few years, and we need the fans this weekend. Longtime rivals the Green Bay Packers are visiting this weekend. I expect the Florida factor of heat and humidity to play a role in this game. It’s very real according to football experts and legends of the game. Fans bring your A-game! I would like to see some false starts by the Packers.
Bucs fans and football fans, enjoy this QB battle! Enjoy it. This is one of those historic matchups of legendary QBs. Elway V Montana, Farve V Manning, Elway V Farve, Brady V Manning, as a few examples. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers have a combined eight Super Bowl championships and seven NFL league MVP’s between them. I consider Brady the GOAT at QB and Aaron Rodgers as maybe the most talented QB of all time. Enjoy this one, football fans. I knew to watch Brady V Manning because I knew it would not continue forever. The Buccaneers take on the Packers 9/25 Sunday at 4:25 PM EST on FOX. Enjoy the game and go Bucs!
