Why the future for Tom Brady and the Buccaneers isn’t bright

Anyone expecting Tom Brady to return to the Buccaneers after this season has clearly been watching different games than the rest of us.

The Tom Brady era in Buccaneers football is getting close to its end. There seems like there is a chance that the end may not be near if something dramatic changes in the coming months, but don’t count on it after what we have seen from this coaching staff.

The Bucs are one of the worst-coached teams in the NFL right now. There may not be a bigger under-performer than this team that still has Brady as its offensive leader.

As hard as it may be to accept, there is one simple question that will answer whether or not the GOAT is going to stay put in Tampa; what is there to play for with the Buccaneers?

The Bucs might sneak into the playoffs due to playing in the worst division in football over the last few years, but sneaking into the playoffs is different than actually winning when you get there.

Betting on the Bucs to make the playoffs this season would be a quality bet. Betting on the Bucs to win the Super Bowl is a different story.

Brady would then be stuck with two choices that both don’t go well for him. First, he can stay in an offense that is terrible with Todd Bowles and Byron Leftwich in the lead. We have already seen how that is going. Why would anyone want to join that offense?

The other option isn’t much better. Even if the Bucs make the necessary change, why would Brady want to play with a first-year head coach or a new face?

Either way, the odds of Brady staying beyond this season do not seem like they are all that great, even if we look at them optimistically.
