I'm pulling for the Buccaneers and hoping that, for the time being, we can put all of this, "Brady is not the best of all-time," nonsense to sleep.

Here's an interesting fact: If the Buccaneers win the Super Bowl this year, (or next year, actually) then Tom Brady will personally have more Super Bowl wins than any other NFL TEAM in history.



Fun Fact: Yogi Berra has more World Series rings than anyone else, and more than every team except the Cardinals but no one talks about him as the GOAT

I'm guessing because he's not simultaneously #1 or #2 in every major statistical category.

When Fran Tarkington broke the all-time passing record, he broke a record that had stood for years,and his record lasted for about 20years give or take a few. There were a bunch of QBs all around 200 career TDs and people thought we'd never see another group like that. Now you need to throw 500 to even make a name for oneself.
Todays statistics are almost meaningless as you have players setting records almost every week. Aaron Rogers was #1 in All-time QB rating one week, two weeks later he was third. Brees was number 1 in touchdown passes until he missed a game and Brady went in front.
It took fifty seasons before the NFL had a 2,000-yard rusher. Now there seems to be one almost every season.
Brady is a great player, just not the greatest, imo. You are entitled to your own opinion.

I loved watching Gary Payton growing up
One of the few that played hard defense
Loved the nickname
The Glove

Just picked up Gary Payton Cookies marijuana strain.
Very nice
I highly recommend



His son Gary Payton Jr ďthe mittenĒ is also an absolute terror on defense as well but doesnít have the offensive skill, two time pac 12 defensive player of the year and was picking ball handlers pockets left and right at the the of last season. Has played nba games each of the last four seasons but never stuck for even half a season at most on a team, simply inadequate as a shooter or ball handler to stick full time and is approaching the portion of the aging curve where itís likely soon or never for that.

Was rooting for the Bucs
Huge relief when the field goal unit came out

. Their win % wen from 10 to 9. A bad call but not even the worst of the game. Arians not refusing the 2nd and 1 intentional offsides was stunning. Did he even stop for a second to think WHY GB went offside on purpose? It never ceases to amaze me how just not smart NFL head coaches are.

Inexplicable. I'm watching with a couple of Packer fans and they seem to think it was a very feline move.

Also if youíre going to kick the field goal, since a first down is game over anyway would an onside make more sense? I know field position but itís one more chance to gain possession, might increase chance of getting possession enough to offset field position vs giving up a first down.

If he refuses it, they just do it again. The cycle would get old real fast.
