    I mean he's over 40, so yeah, I think he's probably slipped some.

    What's your point? Are you trying to make this about other older players? Is this a commentary on someone like Griffen? If so, I would state that a 32 year old coming off a very productive season is a much different animal than a 42 year old QB coming off a so-so season.

    I very well could see them missing the playoffs.....but the Bucc's have odds just as good as Arizona, Seattle, Philly, Dallas, Minnie and Chicago. Jameis is getting the blame for their lack of success.......Arians is no Bellicheat.

    If JK Dobbins drops to them in the 2nd, the Bucs should pounce

    Winston can throw deep while Brady can't anymore. Plus the OL isn't very good. They have really good receivers though but their defense can't stop a runny nose. I think Dallas, Seattle, Arizona, Minnesota all have better shots at the playoffs than Tampa. Chicago would be one Tampa could possibly have better chances to make the playoffs but they face a really good defense.

    Of course Brady is not the Brady of a few years ago.
    But you guys are underestimating Tampa’s overall team as well as him.
    Imo

    And btw,
    PFF ranked Tampa Bay’s line 7th in the league last year (Pats were 10th)

    Either way, it makes for an interesting story line.

    My God.................3 picks 3 times and 5 picks one time? And what about Fumbles?

    Im not saying the defense was great, but it was a solid defense. Got better as the season went along.

    That is incorrect. Although you cant say its not a factor, the big issue with the New England offense was the Oline #1. They had two big injuries and it crippled the line. This affected not only the passing game, but more so the running game. This made the offense one dimensional. And there is the fact that losing his #1 passing weapon in Gronk was a huge hit.

    You combine losing the Oline and the running to the offense combined with losing Gronk and you have the makings of the big drop.

    To assume that its only age isnt understanding the underlying facts.

    If Tampa bays Oline plays well, then I see Brady doing great in that offense.

    I am no expert on the Tampa line. If they are a bad line, then I agree with you.

    NO I was just wondering if you truly knew the underlying facts about why the Pats offense struggled last year. Or, like many others, you were just assuming that Brady was getting old and that was the reason.

    Winston is more mobile than Brady and it's not even close. I'm not sure the exact number of sacks they allowed but Winston got hit a ton. It's possible Brady doesn't make it through the season at 43 years old.

    You would think they could be more original with the sporting fans' lack of viewing events.

    I doubt Brady would come to a team with a bad line. I’ll do some research.

    7th ranked offensive line
    3 behind Dallas, 3 ahead of New England
    And Brady is harder to sack than Winston due to his pocket awareness, footwork within the pocket, and willingness to throw it away quickly.

    I think both Dallas and Philadelphia could have strong years. I think both teams are better than they were in 2019

    I actually think if Washington gets decent play out of Haskins they could have a winning record. Their front four should be dominant
