People may be forgetting that Wash is a really bad team playing a QB that would need to progress considerably to be called a journeyman and that backed into the title of a historically bad division. They had about 4 games where the D played really well but they are a bad team.

I must have missed Wade Boggs winning six World Series for the Sox. And also Brady didn’t sign with the Pats most hated rival.

You don’t have to root for him but I’ll never understand rooting against him. I had been a Pats fan for twenty something years when he got here and would have given a testicle for one Super Bowl. We got six.
I’m with you. I pretty much feel sad for anyone who can’t appreciate what he did for all of us and wish him the best—-that kind of anger and bitterness has to be tough to carry around all the time.

Undeniable. Maybe its the DT association, but once he took off the laundry the good vibes just kind of stopped.
That’s fine and I get it. I get indifference. I don’t get actively rooting against him. But this is well covered ground in this forum and I know others feel differently so I’ll drop it now.

I have been living in DCarea for 30 years, and have rooted against the Skinks for 30 of them. With them finally dropping that sobriquet, I am giving them the benefit of the doubt. Add ' up a few reasons and I am rooting against TB.

If he had signed here, which was never happening because they couldn't pay him, the team would have been even more depleted than it was because he would have absorbed all of the salary cap money.

He didn't desert the Patriots. It made no sense from his or the team's perspective to sign him. Although if I were the Pats, I probably would have offered him 3yrs/75 mil with 50mil guaranteed. Then they would have won 9 games, and still had no talent.
It’s a damn shame they couldn’t work something out. He should have finished a Patriot in an ideal world. I’ll always root for him. I hope Bill takes advantage of the freed up cap space next year. Another shit year would be tough to take.

Dungy is insufferable.

How the fuck do we know they weren’tgonna stop play for a review? TB called a timeout immediately after the conclusion of the prior play.

That’s fine, again, I don’t think you have to root for Brady and the Bucs. You called him a deserted and said you were specifically rooting against Brady. That’s my only beef.

I am not a fan of Tony Dungy, so i tried to go into this game with an open mind.

My mind is now closed. Tony Dungy is absolutely awful in the booth. He's boring, bland, and completely devoid of anything interesting to say or charisma. I feel really bad for Tirico, he's out there on an island.

I find him very easy to ignore. I like that he doesn’t talk much.

Brady is so unflappable in two-minute drill. And every time I see it I remember Super Bowl 36, it isn’t an age thing with him

Jeez. I was watching when Blanda threw that pass. I was 9; Blanda seemed to be about 80.
